And then I think I figured out where I know this guy from, when my Navajo sister was living with us in CA in the 80's. He must be from then because he knew Percy's (my sister's) favorite song and linked to it after I apologized to him. So that's a neat connection I didn't know I had to the past. Good old Facespace.
I moved all the furniture around in my bedroom to make room for the new futon and frame. The under frame is metal springs, so it is comfortable, but the upper frame, the part that shows, is black lacquered wood. I mean, this thing is Nice. My current futon mattress, which is on the floor, I like sleeping down really low or up really high, not so much in the middle, is about three inches thick. And it's filled with thick, dense cotton. The new one is 12 inches thick and has a thick, dense core, wrapped in three inches of soft batting. The whole thing is quilted every twelve inches all the way through, so it will stay together even though it is a composite fill. So it kind of makes up for not being able to be on the floor anymore. Maybe I'll build an MDF platform for it in my room. I would make it so I could take it apart and move with it.
The book case we got, I want so badly to talk Doc into putting it in the living room. It's black matte and would replace the white shelves and go next to another, lower matte black shelving unit. The smaller unit is open in the back, and so is the new one. They would look so good together, and I could install the white shelves in Doc's room for him while he is at work. The white shelves really can't handle the weight of the books that are on it, one shelf is currently collapsed and empty. So it's really not doing any good. And he would mostly put decorative boxes and tins and rare coins and manly stuff such as that on them, not a lot of heavy books.
Oh, man, I've just gotten three messages from that woman. I'm not even going to look at them. I don't want to know, I don't want to engage. She's not even a blip on my radar.
Okay, I have somehow rubbed a bit of white ash on my black shirt and I can see it in my periphery. It's really bugging me, I need to go find another shirt to wear.
