I'm In Love With A Chair

So today I went furniture shopping with Lauren and we found some fabulous places in Fort Greene that contained some real treasures. First we went to City Foundry where they had some really cool robots. There were signs everywhere telling me not to take pictures of said robots, but hey...
Nobody tells Les Boss what to do. Then we went to Horseman Antiques where I promptly fell in love with a chair. Behold...The moment we laid eyes on each other, I knew we had something special. Have you heard of the documentary I Married the Eiffel Tower? I just watched it the other night and let me tell you, that shit is nuts. It's about women who fall in love with inanimate objects like fences, carnival rides and the Berlin Wall. One lady in particular actually married the Eiffel Tower and likes to have sex with it. While I wouldn't necessarily have sexual relations with the chair, I would consider being its wife. Alas, my love was part of a 4-piece set that was $385. One day it will be mine. Oh yes, it WILL be mine.

Other treasures we found include Black Beauty:
And this delightful clown painting:
This bozo looks like he might be a relative of Casey from Uncle Muscle's hour...Right?

It does look like Casey and I believe you were in Boerum Hill... if you had been in Fort Greene I would have expected you to call me.

For the record, I had to pry Lesley off of that yellow chair and yes, we were in Boerum Hill
