Time is so sweet and absurd

We have a couch! We finally have a couch! It is grey-green and comfortably springy and fits into the space between the windows at the front of the apartment and there was an exciting hour when we weren't sure if it had been lost in transit because the tracking website listed it as delivered and it was definitely not in the apartment and the warehouse couldn't get hold of the drivers to ask where on earth either they or the couch were, but it arrived and was carried upstairs by two very pleasant and competent people who took all the packaging away with them afterward and then I sat on the couch in my living room and talked with Matthew until he had to leave to catch his train, although he took a picture of the couch first:



Hestia set the first claw in it, of course. Now she crouches on the back like a demon rabbit, staring out into the world with wide gold eyes. Autolycus leapt onto the cushions, prowled, sniffed carefully all around, and then took possession of a stack of displaced boxes of slightly greater elevation. I am sitting on it with my computer like a sensible person. I could sit on it and read books. I could drag the coffee table over and watch a movie without being at my desk. I could, some afternoon, fall asleep.

Yay, having furniture.

No, having furniture is a very reasonable think to be delighted about!

Totally reasonable. Comfort and elegance are delightful things.

It fits so perfectly! A human could drape themselves over the back of it and gaze out the window.

It really is amazing how couch = living room even when you haven't actually had one for the last six living rooms you've had. I bought a couch earlier this year and the same thing happened here.

Hooray for the sofa (or couch, or Chesterfield, whatever it likes to be called when it's at home, and not off having gallivanting adventures).

It's a nice couch and a lovely spot to place it too!

Ooh! Nice.

I could, some afternoon, fall asleep.

Or evening! (Says he, having woken up on the couch at 5:30AM) I actually find I sleep better on my couch than either of the beds in the house.

It is also a very nice shade of green.

Hurrah! (As long as you keep in mind that it belongs to the cats, of course... ;-D)

How lovely! I immediately want to sit on it, which is a good test of whether it succeeds as a couch.

I'm back, actually! And Ciro is too. (He got in last night; I've been here since about mid-month.) Would definitely be glad to get together sometime.
