Bits and Pieces

Maia, in the car the other day: "My arm smells like da museum with da fishes!"

Me: "Uh, the aquarium?"

Maia: "Yeah! De aquariumum! *giggle* DAT'S SILLY!"

Combustion engine, not combustible engine. Sheesh.

Unfortunately, there is no picture of the Freedom Chair online, because they were discontinuing that particular chair. But we got it from Design Within Reason, which is an interesting catalog.

  1. Hee! I think that's Design within Reach.

  2. Bwaa! What's funny is that as I was blogging this, I kept telling myself, "Now, it's NOT 'Design Without Reason,' which is what my first impulse is. It's not. It's WITH, not WITHOUT. WITH, not WITHOUT."

    I can't get the name right when I'm speaking, either. Even when I think about it, I mess it up. It shouldn't be that hard. I should just stick with DWR.

    Except then I'd probably call it DWI.

  3. BTW, after reading the first intallment of this, I nervously ran into our living room when I got home that day to look at the bottoms of our chairs.

    whew!

    Chair #1: Made in USA (N. Carolina)
    Chair #2: Same, but with the added reminder that we bought it during a Dayton's warehouse sale, back when it was still Dayton's. Cool label to still have in the house.
