Sometimes You Just Can't Avoid Fate...Like Death And Taxes. The Sculptra Was Coming For Me...One Way Or Another. Status: So I Just Got It Over With Already.
Sometimes life just beats you over the head with something. Do it. Do it. Do it. Doitdoitdoitdoitdoit. Fine. Done. I'm the proud new owner of a Broyhill Sculptra bedroom set! Ta Da!
Yeah, you see right. Only the one night stand. This will of course, drive me nuts. Why? Why do
people buy only a single night stand? What is up with that? How do they decide who gets to
use it? It makes no sense! The Girlfriend has to have a place to put her book and I have to
have a place to put the TV remote. There Must Be Two!
Two trips brought all this home! Sellers are always amazed by what can be carefully fit into the
back of the wagons. This time it was all Tinkerbells (the Volvo) job. Wish Tink had a roofrack,
but you can't have everything. The seller thought I might oughta' have a truck for hauling stuff.
Mmmmm, no thanks. I'm good. I likes the good gas mileage and comfort and capacity to have
more than one friend along for the ride.
The set is otherwise complete, the second nightstand not withstanding (not that I'm bitter),
even down to the "starbursty" mirror! I think the whole "doitdoitdoit" thing might have started
when I noticed a visit from Mid-Century Austin Living and while bumbling around there blog I
found this little post about Sculptra which so stuck in my head that I actually quoted the
production dates to the seller of the set I bought today! Freaky how it all turns into a big circle
All is not milk and honey though. I do need to do a little cleanup on the top of the landscape dresser.
I'm hoping my budding refinishing skills will be up to the task. Yeah...another project. ::sigh::
