Shady is moving to a townhouse next month and is furniture shopping. The couch pictured above is *wrong* in so many ways, which Shady will now list in increasing levels of wrongness; it is only available in graphite and a weird tan color, it is a sectional, it has recliners on either side, it looks like something a bachelor would buy, and it is poofy/frumpy. Shady actually laughed at it when she saw it on the showroom floor. It is the exact opposite of what she had in mind. It looks like it should start talking, like Chairy from Pee-wee's Playhouse.
The salesman said that a lot of people have a similar reaction to the couch, but that they stop laughing once they try it out. Always the good sport, Shady decided to humor him, and OH MY GOD! OH MY GOD! (Shady actually said this several times). This is the most comfortable couch EVER!!!!!!! It is like floating on pillowy clouds of goodness when in the recline position (notice the extra-wide recliners on either end), and yet it is not so soft that Shady sinks into it and feel like she's 5-years-old. Shady actually kept muttering, Wow, that couch is awesome! for several minutes after leaving the couch area. She used the word "awesome" so many times, that coupled with Shady's young looks, probably made the salesman think that her mommy and daddy were going to show up and actually make the purchase.
So, Shady is not sure what to do because now the couch is altering her perception. The more Shady looks at it, the more she likes how it looks. It's kind of like when someone becomes more physically attractive as you get to love their personality.
Is Shady nuts?!? Shady needs objective opinions from cowpeas who have not fallen under the spell of Couchy!

Ok so PB does not personally know this brave young nut, Ryan Kerr, who lost his fight with childhood cancer; however, PB was extremely touched by the dedication that his parents still have towards finding a way to bring smiles to young faces during their battle with this awful disease. They are also extra smooth and creamy for dedicating time for other life threatening diseases too. How can we not support them? Let's go nuts your vote counts even if it will not enable you to elect the leader of the free world it might mean you bring a smile to a bald 7 year old's head and make a woman's fight for her deceased son even more great! Take a minute or so to share your finger tips at voting for this woman. L'oreal has chosen this brave nut's mother as a nominee for Woman of Worth Award.

PB thinks she can also speak for Shady regarding this smooth duty of all Nuts. Get out there Nuts and do what is a simple duty. PB was happy to stand on line for about an hour to cast her ballot. She normally stands on line for about 10 minutes max to vote. She was also filled to the top with shells that so many young first time voters were there. Way to go Nuts. PB totally appreciates the right to vote and hopes each of her nuts will also be able to see the significance of a democratic society.
