Colonization complete

Today I made an Ikea run to get a chair and a TV table for my living room, and re-arranged the room, putting the TV table (and the TV and Blu-ray player) where the bookcases were (opposite the futon) and moving the bookcases to other walls (what a pain!). Here is the new chair. As you can see, it has already been colonized. What, you thought I was buying it for *me*?! ROFL! The Mighty Fang has something to say about that :).

  1. And I note that TMF has cleverly chosen a cream-colored soft surface, where his black hair will remain for all passers-by to admire.

    They are cleverer than us - despite that walnut-sized brain.

  2. Ah, but this was a deliberate choice of colors, deliberately chosen to enhance the appearance of the inevitable colonizer. Note the fine black arms and legs of the chair, which color-coordinate so well with the inhabitant of the chair. The striking contrast with the cream-colored cushion simply goes to show that Swedes -- and black cats -- have better taste than we uncouth Americans. All in all, it is a study in contrast and understated elegance, don't you think?
