At Last...

At last...

My old piece-of-sh*t-sofa is finally outside on the sidewalk where it belongs. I hate it more now than I did before and I hope someone pees on it tonight.

So, here's what happened. Kate got home from work and came up to my apartment, and then Sarah, her and I tried to "pivot, pivot" for a good five or ten minutes (that was for all the commenters of this post.) How I ever got it wedged in that space so tightly, I will never know, but the thing wouldn't move.

I was just about to call a professional to come over and saw the thing in half (or better yet, go out and buy a chainsaw of my own and do it myself) when we tried again, and, by God, we did it.

Now, I can't really explain how it happened, but *i think* Kate pulled down the top and I wiggled the middle and then Sarah got on the floor and pushed the bottom up with her feet... or maybe it was her hands... I'm not sure. All I know is that the sofa shifted and came loose and then Sarah flew across the room.

Poor thing. Sure hope she's okay.

She really was the hero, Sarah. It was her feet (or maybe her hands) that were the most effective in prying the sucker loose.

Kate, Sarah... LOTS of margaritas on me soon. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

As for door frame...


And now.... a picture of the new sofa:

I still need to lay down the rug, paint (maybe a plumy brown?) and hang pictures... but I think it's looking good!

You did it... you pivoted! hee hee hee

The new couch looks great. Where did you get your pillows? I really like them.

Didn't take Elvis long, did it??? Ha!

Yay to out with the old in with the new. Elvis seems to think the new sofa is very stylish and comfortable. It does look really good I must say.

Now all you need is a rug to "tie the room together" as the Dude said :)

Elvis looks so cute and right at home on the new sofa! AWWW

I'm sorry, but that's hysterical-- that is totally something I would do.

In the end, Elvis looks like he approves of the new sofa, and isn't that the most important thing?

Beverly looks vexed in the shot of your neighbor helping you.

I like the plumby brown idea, but also how about a burnt organgy color?

Glad you got it to the curb. Now I have a place to sleep tonight!

Is that you black limo parked at the curb?

Congrats on the new couch! Very sleek.

Elvis is such a cat. My cat did the same thing when we got a new sofa; parked herself on it, and didn't move for hours. Gotta love them.

Like the sofa, and pillows too. Good luck rug hunting.

I about peed my pants! That's hilarious. I can hear Ross right now saying "Pivot! Pivot!". You crack me up!

March 21, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterKatie

you know, my brother and I had a similar problem a few weeks ago and we didn't even HESITATE to break out the saw. I posted the pics on Facebook.
