It really ties the room together...

In response to the Good Dentist's comment regarding our new home and the possible presence of a certain "rug", I write thus.

We were just about complete. New furniture, a beautiful oak armoire, lavish wooden tables, even matching oak bookshelves to display photos of family members as well as our many texts from college ("The Basic Works of Aristotle", anyone?).

The brutal truth was present, however. That nagging feeling that keeps you up at night while you lie in bed trying to fall asleep. Like the gay cousin at a family reunion who brings home his new "friend" from college. Something needed to be addressed.

The "elephant in the room" was something that wasn't in the room at all. It was something, however, that needed to be in the room. Hardwood floors need to be covered, something I'm sure the liberal left has convinced all Americans as being true. Well - Glenn Beck's personal feelings aside, WE (the royal 'we', the editorial 'we') felt something was truly missing from our living room. After much thought and debate, WE (my wife) realized exactly what was missing.

A rug. To tie the room together.

One of my wife's jobs affords us the opportunity to purchase high-end home furnishings at an extremely disgusting discount (40% off) which sits extremely well with this frugal writer. Having scoured the website of said employer for roughly an hour, a decision was made, and a rug purchased.


And it really does tie the room together.

Mr. Dubbowski, Brandt again. Please do call us when you get in and I'll send the limo. Let me assure you--I hope you're not avoiding this call because of the rug, which, I assure you, is not a problem. We need your help and, uh--well we would very much like to see you. Thank you.It's Brandt.

**BEEP**

Mr. Dubbowski, this is Fred Dynarski with the Southern Cal Bowling League. I just got a, an informal report, uh, that a uh, a member of your team, uh, Walter Sobchak, drew a loaded weapon during league play--

Dubbs, this is Spastik Dubbowski. I need to see you. I'm the one who took your rug.

That photo is too awesome - the rug really does tie the room together. The best part is that on facebook a bunch of my friends just started up a Lebowski status. It never ends. And it's always awesome.

Were you listening to the Dubb's story Jessica? He already has a rug, man. And he gets 40% off on all his other stuff...you know. That's like...500 bucks or something.

That picture is too awesome.

Sorry dude, I was indisposed for a while and am just getting back. Now I'm Turking Off again. I will be catching up on your blog right now.
