the Foof lair looks quite nice, I believe everything has arrived. I'm still meh on the fur thing covering the nice sofa and those decorative moss terranium things, but overall I think the place turned out great in person.


the 85 lb. dining chairs aren't as bad to move as I had previously thought. I still like mine better, but so it goes. In fact, mine would look awesome in the Foof lair. The Foof dining chairs could use some seat cushions, and I believe that's happening.

good lord, it's not a height joke, and trust me I'd be the FIRST one there to make a Foof height joke.

How short is foo anyway? I don't think he's even that short. I mean, below average, sure, but not like a munchkin. I can still see him without having to kneel.

Because it has much less surface area to support one's weight. I'd guess it has, even generously, 1/3 as much surface area to support your ass, so parts of your ass will feel 3x more force, while others will feel none. I would think this large differential is likely even to leave a dodecahedron-shaped grid on your ass when you get up.

I would say "we told him so" but then we would argue for another 2,800 posts about how I'm misrepresenting what was said and parse every letter til, like a turd somewhere between an asshole and the sea, I'd been spun around so many times and put through so many pipes and waste treatment facilities that I would no longer know which direction was up, or perhaps not even whether I were a turd any more after all.

His application to the Lollipop Guild was not rejected.

I think our plant balls have been dead for months.

Conceptially, I view plant and ball as singular.

Was Foo's suit successful? The one that alleged negligent handling of stone surfaces which proximately caused emotional distress.. I heard the jury came back with a hefty compensatory figure, but that the defendant is countersuing because Foo let his Dictator candle burn too long, which caused a rather large drop of wax to fall on the floor, which led to a 24-hr scrubbathon, resulting in a smooth but hard to see 3-inch area the white glove guy took a rather nasty fall on, shaking his confidence to work in small and over-planned living quarters.

to put things in perspective, I look down to Foo and up to tabletops. And you have clouds around your ears.
