A Post Without Theme, Or Structure

In the spirit of Deconstructivist Blogging, I give you some random snippets:
  • It crossed my mind that what my house needs is a spiral staircase. I love spiral staircases, they just seem so exotic. Of course this means I'd also have to add a second floor, to my rental.
  • I flicked through a Pro Audio catalogue last night and the only items that drew my attention were an $8 cowbell and the Astro Raggi II disco light.
  • New high thread-count sheets make the world of difference.
  • We have a new research assistant in the office; he's 21, pretty and built like a rugby player. Just looking at him makes me feel dirty.

There should be an award for outstanding achievement in punctuation.
Loves it when you deconstruct.

I was SO close to buying Nate's sheets this weekend. Not SO HIGH in thread count, but did I mention they were Nate's sheets? The only thing that held me back is they didn't have the queen-sized duvet in stock.

Mmmmmm Nate's sheets....

Oh yeah... not sure if anyone else mentioned this, but when I hit the site just now I was visitor 10,008...

I'd buy Nate's anything. Just to be that little bit closer to him, you know? Queen sized huh? :-)

Yaniboy, you won't believe the 10,000 hit controversy! We currently have 3 claimants. The auditors are examining the transcripts.

A) thread count is everything. Excecpt no substitutes.
B) I want to work in your office!!

I know what you mean Duane. Sweet, pretty, half-Italian Anthony just left the other day but the new guy Matt is making up for it. He's got a fairly tight pale mint green polo shirt on today, the 'guns' are substantial. His arms are about the same size as my thighs... and my legs are quite stocky. He's very 'boy next door', bit of a college jock sort of look. (Great butt too.)

He's only here over the Summer, working on the book we produce, but I think it'll be a nice Summer.

I agree, Duane, the higher thread count sheets are exceptional, but at a certain point, the return diminishes for me. Get into the 400s and they are too slick. I like a little traction.

Andrew, don't feel guilty. Enjoy it while you can. (wipe up that drool!!)

300+ threat count is a minimum full stop.

The Other Andrew said...

Well get us swanky folks, being all "I don't get into bed for less that 300 count.." :-)

Traction huh? Sounds like quite an experience, Mr Mike.

Stephen, there is a bit of drool. It's true.

Well being the practising Buddhist that I am, being into voluntary simplicity and all that (m'kay, stop sniggering there at the back ...), I can honestly say that thread count on sheets does not bother me.

Hell, who am I kidding, when it comes to cuties (like Matt), I would have no hesitation in jumping into a used hessian sack, or a parkbench, or the back of a Datsun 180b, or for that matter ... ummm ... oh .... I think you get the idea.

And traction, Mikey? I am not even going to go there. {Is that a collective *sigh* of relief that I just heard? ...]

I think that means it's time for a work related photo project :P

Good point Bodhi, thread count goes out the window when joined by the right person. whoo-hoo!
