I’ll be taking this week off to spend time with my family, but I leave you with two supercool things to start your week off right. First, here’s a link to a fun Thanksgivukkah festival in LA:
You can participate in funding this festival and help other great causes in the process. From their fundraising site:
In line with our t-shirts and Notecards sold on Moderntribe.com, 10% of the proceeds of the festival goes to Mazon, a Jewish Response to Hunger with the rest of it going to fund theatre programming for at risk kids at The Pico Union Project.
The second thing I leave you with is this Craigslist post advertising a loveseat for sale here in Austin. It’s quite possibly my all-time favorite Craigslist post. It’s indescribable, really…you just have to experience it for yourself. To quote William Hurt in The Big Chill, “Sometimes you have to just let art flow over you.” Here’s the loveseat:
Think it’s pretty average? Here’s what the seller has to say about it:
Do you have too many guests coming in from out of town and not enough places to sleep? Problem solved! Buy my couch. You can’t afford not to.
This couch is so awesome that I’m doing it a disservice by not photoshopping in rad explosions and unicorns farting sparkly iridescent rainbow clouds behind it. It deserves a better backdrop than my messy apartment. Thus, you need to take it.
I have, strangely enough, managed to profit off of this couch. My couch surfer last year bought my F1 tickets…which were worth approximately $One Fifth of a Miata. (Yes, Miata is a unit of currency.) Another couch surfer tossed me a totally unexpected wad-o’-cash after buying me food most of the time he was here.
Unfortunately, this couch has become a mere shelf for (clean) 944 parts, so that means a) I really need to find more race car storage and b) it’s time for it to go.
This is a beige sleeper couch that comes complete with a full size fold-out mattress, which you can sell out to your heart’s content, then later use to count money on while feeling like a cross between Scrooge McDuck and the Monopoly guy.
To be honest, you don’t even really need to fold out the mattress for excellent nappin’. Because it is longer than your average loveseat, I can comfortably curl up and nap with everything folded away. The entire length will hold 5’4″ of
