Tibetan Stool

Last night, I went to the movies with a friend and saw Just Like Heaven because my friend is head over heels in love with Mark Ruffalo. Unfortunately, Mark Ruffalo doesn't really do anything for me, but the movie was sweet and fun anyway. And I always like Reese Witherspoon.

After the movie, I went over to my friend's place for a slice of carrot cake. Her mom had baked a carrot cake and my friend took some home with her. So we were eating cake and just hanging out and chatting when my friend took out a chair. I looked at it and gave a surprised look of recognition. Oh my god, it's my Tibetan Stool! I bought my Tibetan Stool three years ago at Pottery Barn, and I love it. Granted, I don't use it for really anything, least of all sitting on it, but I think it looks so cool. I wish I could find a picture of it, but apparently Pottery Barn doesn't sell this item anymore.

I had never known anyone else who also had the Tibetan Stool, but it was nice to see that someone else shared my taste. Not that no one else ever shops at Pottery Barn. Although, I have to say that I prefer Crate & Barrel, and my apartment looks like p. 17 of the catalog. One time, I was walking with another friend when I was out in California. We passed a Tibetan store, and I saw an exact "replica" of my stool! Wow, there it is! I told my friend, "Well, mine is much better and more authentic. It's the real thing. It's from Pottery Barn."

I saw the movie and it was too cute! I love Reese too!

I'm sure the chair is fab. But, now I want to see your apartment! Crate & Barrel has some nice stuff, Pottery Barn is cool too, and I'm sure they sell 'authentic' Tibetan stools ;) LOL

To give you an idea of where my state of mind is right now: when your new blog entry appeared in my RSS feed, I immediately thought of "stool" as in "stool sample." Yum.

Isn't that what they call the Dalai Lama's excrement?

Getting stool from potty barn; can't get more authentic than that.

And doesn't Mark Ruffalo speak funny? That's what I think. Loved him in Eternal Sunshine though. ;)

wasn't that an entire FRIENDS episode? rachel decks out her and phoebe's apartment with pottery barn but tells her all the stuff is from a flea market because pheobe only likes "authentic" furniture. terry cho cho is a walking FRIENDS episode. that rocks. as does his tibetan chair, i'm sure.

I have to say I was distracted by "stool," too. Perhaps you could try "Tibetan sitting apparatus" or some such. But I'm glad you love your stool.

As for Mark Ruffalo, Ruffalo=cutie.

Yeah, I like Mark Ruffalo as well.

My apartment is still furnished from Ikea. That's what happens when you have over $100k in law school loans, bleh.

What I want to know is how your friend obtained *your* Tibetan stool??? Were you burgled and she obtained it for a good price from a fence, or what??? And, lastly, is she going to give it back, see that it is yours??? :-) - a friend's Mom

Thanks for making me laugh. That was truly classic!
