from my interview with Amy:
3. don't lie or cheat: what is under your couch right now?
When we were furniture shopping I didn't give any consideration to the space under the couch. We bought one we liked, but I don't remember putting any thought into the height of the legs. In hindsight, I'm so very glad we bought a couch that sits directly on top of the floor. I'm a pack-rat by nature, and an indifferent housekeeper. Four inches of under-couch space would be filled with books and magazines, cat hair and dust bunnies, random bits of dropped food (mmmm....floor pie...) and heaven knows what else. Instead, the couch is so close to the rub you'd be hard pressed to slip a piece of paper under there. Just to be sure, in the interest of this interview, I moved it and found only the loveliest bit of carpet - clean, unfaded, and uncrushed. This is truly remarkable. Next time I'm overwhelmed by mess I'm going to ask someone to pick up the couch so I can lay down underneath it.
4. when was the last time you shaved your legs?
