Preparing for the Couch

I'm one of seven people that didn't go see the latest Star Wars movie. I was supposed to go this morning, but I got a bad case of the anti-socials. Plus, there were probably too many fanboys there critiquing the movie as it played. I want to go and just enjoy the movie on the big screen. Even if its a crap movie, I'll still enjoy it. 

But that's not what we're here for.

Christmas is less than handful of days away. I'm getting a very cool gift, yes I know what it is. A small couch (loveseat) for my office. I wanted a nice place dedicated to reading. A place to sit, have a small table for my book(s), and a window nearby for light and a view. A chill place. No electronics. Just a place to get lost in a book for hours at a time.

This picture is from the website of what should arrive Monday.  

Now I'll need to rearrange my gaming book shelves. Sigh. But it'll be worth it. 

Oh, and as a cool bonus, I now have a d20 pillow to put on my couch.

    1. Yeah, I think it'll be a great place to get quiet and read.

  2. My wife and I are going on NYE. We've started a new tradition.

    Nice couch! Will the dog or cat or kids claim it? :D

  3. Our new couch just arrived on Friday, so I totally understand the excitement. Best part for me is that I get the old couch (a nice, leather comfy one) to lounge in for my morning writing jaunts. I'm lounging in it as I type. Yesterday I just spent a couple hours re-reading a Canticle for Leibowitz. Fantastic.

    May you have many excellent sessions on your new piece of comfort. Cheers!
    : )

    1. Thanks JB. Sounds like you have a great set up yourself. Canticle of Leibowitz, wow flashback. I haven't read that book in decades.

  4. I'm not seeing the new SW until after Christmas. I'm taking Rachel (or more to the point she's driving me, but I paid for the tickets) although I'm fully cognisant of the fact that she's likely to be asleep within the first half-hour!

    Your planned chilling set-up sounds great - hope you get plenty of use out of it.

    Have a great Christmas!

  5. Family visiting. I've rearranged my gaming books and files twice...

    1. I intend on working on my books tomorrow. So if you hear swearing from PA it's probably me.
