A break

On the holiday Monday yesterday, Metro and I agreed to take a much needed break from the Internet. Instead, we spent time together, puttering around the house, shopping for the house. Putting furniture together for the house...

I first met Cold Desert (Can I use 'met' for someone I've never seen face-to-face? We're going to need a new word for someone we only know via the Internet....unless one already exists?) when I googled "too much paper" ages ago, and ended up on his blog, where he had this picture posted:

So I linked to him, he linked to me...and now he worries about other things than piles of paper. (I never did find out if this was his reality or just a nightmare pic he found somewhere else. Ahmad?)

Today, in our home office, we have a solution:
I don't know about you, but this piece of furniture, while a bitch to put together, is a dream come true in a lot of ways.

Thanks, Metro. Big kiss.

Can I lie and say that this is my office? :P

Lori said...

It's still a disturbing picture...

Okay. It can be your office. :-) Worrying about a mess like that is better than the mess you're going to have to worry about when Israel finally calls off its dogs.

I am thinking of leaving the country; it would be easier than staying and cleaning. :)
The problem is that if all the people like me left, Israel would win. :S

Love the "office solution"...maybe Darren will buy me one for our big 15th Anniversary.

Sonia...tell him we got it at Canadian Tire -- I'm sure he loves that place and won't object to going there!

What is it about Canadians? Do other countries have stores with names like that? Brazilian Tire, Lebanese Tire, Australian Tire...

Hi Niki -- good to see you here.

So, what does Ahmad really look like, I wonder?? We know he doesn't look like Tom Cruise!

Lori said...

Oh, and raincoaster -- apologies for not responding to you personally before, but I just can't reply to a comment that is so...true.

:P
