I don’t normally complain about physical pain

I don’t normally complain about physical pain, being that I prefer to complain about deep psychic wounds and stuff, but yesterday I dropped my wallet on my foot and was convinced I broke my toe. This is not a sign that I am so full of money that my wallet is a weapon. It’s a sign that I need to clean out all the assorted crap that I’ve been keeping in my wallet for so long because when I get a piece of paper, I like to file it in my wallet.

And then last night I was reading in bed and somehow I did something because my neck hurts so bad today I can only move slowly and melodramatically. I should probably start sighing.

Maybe I need to drop my wallet on my other foot to knock everything back into alignment?

Mike: Oh! I met someone who’s also into those vampire books.
Me: Was it a wo—
Mike [cutting me off]: It was a 12- year-old.

Need a dose of cuteness?

I think you do. These are the birthday cards my mom received from her favorite daughter and my sister.

In other news I’m ass high in the midst of couch shopping. Well, let me back up. So last night I’m reading my vampire book and I get an email from one Bill Schulz cajoling me into coming into the Activity Pit chatroom and I did and it was fun but it was pointed out to me that I haven’t been blogging as much lately and it must be because I’m busy. Yeah, busy sitting on couches. Imagine couches are braille and my butt is blind.

But see, there is something frivolous about the couch decision and so perhaps I haven’t wanted to admit how much of my energy and time is being taken up by it because I like to think I’m a person of substance. In this case, polyester foam with down ticking.

So I’ve narrowed it down to two models, and I will post those pictures, but first I want to say that now that I’m all couch aware–to the point that I know that Room & Board’s Kendall is basically Crate & Barrel’s Huntley Woods with different pillows, which is to say I can see the frame beneath the fluff, I’m again having a thought that I’ve had periodically over the years which is that the human face comes in a limited number of models and you just see the same face over and over again on different people with slight variation. Do you know what I mean? My thoughts are very mushy and marshmallowy and kind of dumb right now. It’s because I have two whole couches in there and the left arm facing sectional.

Do I want this couch?

Or this one?
