A post about nothing

This has been a hard week. I'm balls to the wall busy and having trouble sleeping. Those two things are certainly related. Anyway I've got nothing scintillating to report except that our ficus has made figs again. Lots of them. This is the second year in a row. I think she really likes that spot.

Here's the current state of our coffee table. That's a record four coffee table books going on there. I remember in college, I would sometimes take pictures of the coffee table the morning after. It was always a disaster with ashtrays, beer bottles and food detritus. I always thought that a book of morning-after pictures of coffee tables would make a good coffee table book. Then Kramer came along..... Strange that we call it a coffee table though, we never have coffee there.

I like the coffee table book idea. I wanna page through that Washington book.

My coffeetable looks like the throwaway table at a church bazaar!

I don't know what that means, it just sounded funny in my head. I haven't been sleeping well either.

I've had a ficus for 13 years and the damn thing does nothing but drop leaves all winter. Tips?

I've never owned a coffee table.

Word verification: "batated." It sounds good as a euphemism for 'tired' and 'busy'

The name "coffee table" sounds like we should be doing White-House level of entertaining in our living room. I wonder what a "tea table" looks like.

A ficus tree is a fig tree? Seriously, the amount of things I don't know is embarassing. I love me some figs, though. Now if only you could find a newton tree.

Hang on, it's almost Friday.

I like that idea.

My coffee table usually has day-old empty coffee cups on it, so I guess it sorta lives up to its name.

I don't have a coffee table. I have a tv tray.

God, I need a bigger apartment.

De-lurking here to ask: aren't they called "tables basses" in Québec?
