Being in college makes you really appreciate income once your out of school. Going from a college income to a big boy income is a huge shift. Now onto Loki's situation.. being on a big boy income and not having to buy your girlfriend ****... saves alot of money for the miata

I send $800-2000 per month to student loans now that I've spent everything I must on the miata and payed for the subaru. I'm going to do that for years.

If it weren't for this awesome job, I'd never have a chance to build the miata. The only reason I did is because of this money. I'll never have the chance to build a dirty track car again; I'll either have a home or a pool to spend money on.

The chair wont, but the gf likes it so much it will.

The hard part is finding an apartment for my 9 foot couch

I knew they had some locations in Chicago, and I don't know where else to get a 9' couch...
I used to partner with them, had theater rooms in their stores (2 here in the Atl area). Their **** is rediculously expensive, but is also the BEST.

Course, had you knew that I knew that you knew I would have called in a favor for you to get you hooked up. I still get anything I want from them at their employee price (cost+10)

Do they have the orange elmo couch with the chase on display up there? They have it at a few of the stores down here. It's ******* NICE. I want it, but I have a crazy *** dog. I also like that brown nubuck like, rustic leather they have. but it too scratches real easily.

I have a bunch of their theater chairs in storage. Can't use em at my current house and don't have the stomach to sell them.

$10k worth of stuff would have broken down to around $5000 anyway, so you did fine

The new popular rustic leathers are supposed to scratch up. Take a hair dryer to it and give it a little buff. Looks just like new again.

Ben, He didn't know that you knew that he knew that you didn't know.

Oops. Just tried to look at leathercreations.com I'm guessing you didn't go to a bondage supply store. That would explain the 3k chair though.

oh yeah you gotta go to .net... l leathercreations.com are things you can do on leathercreations.net stuff.

No they didnt even bother carrying elmo (it get ruined to easily, and they dont even recommend it for anyone)

But so everyone knows what were talking about its the same leather that used in ferrai and lambourghini seats.

its untreated and cant really be cleaned or protected.
