so when he im-ed me yesterday afternoon to ask if i'd be coming home directly from work, and not stopping to buy anything silly or remotely ugly or very expensive, i was forced to respond thusly: (i said thusly... heh.)
have you been in the bedroom yet this afternoon?
for had he been in the bedroom already, he would have known the answer to his question. as he would have come face to um, face, with my new chair. in all its magnificent cow-ie glory.
so this is where i will be reading the yummie books you people buy me for my berfday, and also where i will be being all nana-like with my Bag O' Yarn. but don't you be thinking the cow chair is in its full and complete state of cowieosity at this very moment, because it most certainly is not.
once we move to the new place, the one without the bugs and mouse poops, i will be sewing beautiful new velvety throw pillows for my couch (which is this color) and cow chair in a color something like this. and because we are good tenants (potential landlords, be advised), we will of course require a throw rug to put beneath the royal cowiness. which Boy and i have decided should look like this.
any ideas where i can get a good deal on astroturf? oooooh! maybe i'll make a mini astro-pillow, too.
and i believe it's now official. i am martha on drugs.
anyhow, in honor of the expansion of our family, i hereby present the
the rules are as follows:
1. be creative. b! e! creative! *swooshes pompoms*
2. nothing really obscene. because i don't use those kinds of words. yeah you heard me right bitches.
3. suggestions must be made as comments or they will not be considered. this means you, Squiggle. 'cause i'm a-flushing out the lurkers. (and i'm doing it with a southern accent. y'all.)
4. the winner will be chosen by the end of the week. upon being chosen, said winner should email me an address to which i can send a prize. because prizes rock! i send good prizes!
now, valancy jane claims to be a world-class namer, so there may be some stiff competition. hehe. stiff. good luck!
*no actual cows were harmed in the making of this chair. or post.
