I have a thing for pillows. I need a lot of them to sleep comfortably. I am like some middle eastern Sultan of old and currently have NINE of them on my bed. It's a whole production to arrange the just right so that I get maximum comfort and the cat get's a steady perch from which he can look outside.
I have three pillows on the couch so that I can watch TV in the style of the Emperor of Rome. My nightmare is to go to prison where they only give you ONE pillow. Now THAT is some barbaric bull shit right there and a crime against civilization.
I didn't call this beautiful thing a 'chesterfield' but that is what we refer to them as here in Canada. Sometimes we call them a sofa. 'Chesterfield' just always seemed to me to be a more dignified way to address the largest piece of sitting down furniture in the room.
When I lived with roomies in University we visited a large furniture store that was having a sale of miss matched cushions and large pillows and we bought a bundle of them. It was great lounging around in our own little islands of comfort while watching TV or playing video golf.
Sometimes if one of the roomies passed out we would pile pillows on top of him and then deliver flying wrestling moves on him. No one really got hurt - just a little squished.
I forever stand vigilant to protect this planet from the myriad of forces that are always against us. Be it the octopus, zombies, aliens or the robots my team of human agents, and our feline allies, circle the globe in a never ending struggle for human freedom.
I learn all I can on every subject that interests me. I especially enjoy ancient history because in the past there are valuable lessons to be found. Also, if I ever get my time machine to work properly, it would be good to know a bit about possible destinations and what to expect when I get there.
I greatly appreciate beautiful design. Be it manufactured or found naturally I am fascinated by the process of invention. I am attracted to the unique, the strange, the haunted. I like to share what I find on this blog.
And not let us forget the 'Cephalopod Menace' who, if allowed to, would wrap their tentacles around all that is good and pure in this life and crush it until it remained no more. They are creatures of pure spite. Hate is all they know. Death is all they do. They are our most ruthless and determined enemy.
So we fight. Selena has the celebrity contacts, the cat is ruthless and without pity, Roosevelt's ghost has the experience and I do the wetwork.
Fighting for the future of the planet doesn't have to be a chore, however. We can take the time to appreciate all that is cool in this world even as we cut the octopus into bite sized chunks.
This is the reason there has always been and must forever be, a Cave of Cool. Be sure to wipe your feet before you enter.
