Because I'm Sharing Today  
Ultra Papa fighting sounds like someone having a bad time on the john.

And on an only semi-related note, aw, dammit. Another stupid random song. I don't remember if I have a clean copy of this one or not. :P

Ooh, ooh! I was going to post this earlier then didn't. In examining the cat couch I realized that I needed to get some coffee beans, to refresh the nasal passageways when I'm checking if/where stuff still smells. Me needing to go grocery shopping and there being a Starbucks next to the grocery store, I saw a Clever Plan (tm) evolving. So I popped in and the barristas were kind enough to give me a handful of beans (thank you kind barristas!) I left the cup with the beans in it in my car while I did my shopping and came back a while later expecting, at worst, for my car to smell like coffee.

It didn't. It smelled like a skunk. :P

On the bright side, there is now more of the couch not smelling of cat piss than there is couch that does. I'm not completely there yet, but at least I now have reasonable hope of managing to restore the couch to an acceptable state. It will be good to have it cleaned and finished and returned to its rightful owner, who has been very patient and gracious about the whole unfortunate incident.

Coffee makes your car smell like skunk? I dunno. I find that coffee in car smell to be really good. In fact, I wish it'd last longer but the aroma passes even when the coffee is left in the car.

Hot coffee beans make the car smell like skunk. I'm betting the beverage itself probably wouldn't.

Ah. I guess coffee grounds aren't quite the same either then.

Bleh! Cantonese humor. On the other hand, he would be the one to fight the butt-wiggling totem pole. _Very_ bad time.

I'm sorry that the whole couch thing has turned into such an ordeal for you. I really do appreciate everything you've done to restore it, though. (Even unto your car smelling like skunk. Ouch. :| Hope that cleared out quickly.)

Good idea on the coffee beans, though. I never would have thought of that.

No worries on the couch. I'm just sorry I didn't move it out to the garage when it was first becoming apparent that there was a non-resolving problem going on. And the skunk smell did clear out pretty much immediately, so no worries on that front. And hey, now that I've got more free time, hopefully I can get the couch finished up and returned to you! :)

Apparently coffee beans are commonly used to clear out the sinuses, sort of the way sorbets are used to clear the palette. Or at least that's why I was told they leave jars of beans around at Lush. And it does seem to work.

That's why Lush has them! Ahh, thank you.
