that day spent 
searching for a new couch
quite securely
reaffirmed my belief
that there are a
heck of a lot of russians
out there
with a very misguided sense of 
tasteful furniture.

and hey, 
i guess that's
their post-soviet right
to go nuts 
with stuff like that.

in the meantime,
i'll stumble
upon something 
a little more up my alley
every few stores.

and then when that 
russian extravagance
gets coupled with 
some innovative,
brilliant italian designer,
you'll get something like
this bathtub
that i will dream about all night.

in fact,
there were a whole lot
of things i saw today
that i will be 
dreaming about.
incredible things that just
never make it
across the atlantic.

Are you having dreams or nightmares about some of that stuff? Did you find something for your place??? I'm sure it'll be tasteful!
