Happy Tree Friends was on Thursday nights, too. It was replaced by the anime. If that is gone, I don't know what is in its place. TV GUIDE TIME, PEOPLE!

...Looks like just world movies, for a while. Hopefully it comes back soon. That was my weekly dose of Angry Kid, Harvey Birdman and Happy Tree Friends!

Well, I'm currently living in a granny flat in my parents' place, and I'm moving out in January next year. So!
The trick is to smuggle one of you in here, then move me out, without my parents noticing. All you need is to be blond and androgynous, and I can change my hair to look like yours. (It hasn't been cut in oh, a year and a bit, so its kinda...fluffy....by now)
xkcd commune, initiate!

That, or we could always invade and take over the Hutt River province. Though I don't know if they have the intertubes there.
(wikipedia should know what the hutt river province is, even if you don't. And plans to invade the hutt river province are never far from my mind)

The Hutt River province in reality fails to live up to these high standards, I unequivocably support your creation (right up until you put a giant slug in charge).

We actually do have a spare room here, surprisingly. Mum uses it as a sewing room, but she never actually sews in there.

Do you like couchbeds?

I'm not sure what it is actually. I think it's a queen single. Maybe it'll tell me somewhere on it...

Apparently not, or not anywhere I looked. The mattress does say that it's 200x105, if anyone knows enough about beds to put that into a size.

Given that for my single bed L =/= 4/3 W (crappy student accomodation, but the sheet fits so i guess it must be fairly standard, unless they have a size called 'crappy student accomodatioj - single), i would guess you have a double? Possibly triple if you get particularly lucky :P

Dammit, my cookies just fell off my desk :(

Hey! VSM. You can live in someone's mother's sewing room in Australia and I can live in the other. It will be amazing. If you want, I'll even take the couch-bed, because I have no problem with couch-beds.

I think 200x105 is a "king single". A regular single is 180x80 or something puny like that. I used to have a king single. There's also such a thing as a "long single", which is about 200x80 and a "twin single" (200x120). Everything single other than the classic one is a total pain in the arse to find bedding for.

These days I have a queen. They're about 200x150. I don't know the size of a double, but I do know doubles are only 180ish long and that's too damn short for me. I've also seen a "long double" for sale once, which was the same width as a double (130?), but 200 long like a queen. I was tempted to get it because my room's little, but I realised just in time that I wouldn't be able to find any bedding that fit it so I bought the queen instead. Queens are great; they feel really roomy in terms of width, but don't take up as much room as I expected. It probably helps that I got an ensemble so I don't have a frame around it wasting space.

Why do I know so much about bed sizes? I'm not sure. Put it up to the insatiable curiosity that's so common among members of this forum. I couldn't just go and try a few beds and say "I want that one", because I'm on a quest to find out everything about everything. :D

Thankyou. I shall henceforth claim 'King single' as my bed size. It can fit two people so long as they cuddle :P

Well, I've only started calling it a pool house after watching "The OC". It's more or less a sleepout, but it has glass doors that open to the pool area.

we got taught the 'SEXY' method, but a much simpler method was acutally at hand for us scots, written all over our exam papers.

see the company that runs all the education stuff here is called the scottish qualifications authority, or sqa, so 'SQA' is printed on every bit of paper. one of our teachers told us just to use this as

State
Quote
Analyse

which works brilliantly, as long as you remember the elaborating bit within state.
