The pattern on this is supposedly of a "European Golf Scene". God Bless America and many of her countrymen's obsession with Europe and the automatic sophistication that comes from something being associated with Europe. Don't get me wrong, Australia's definitely got some colonial love in that direction, but we don't go weak at the knees at a "British" accent the way our Septic Tank cousins do (I know I have readers in America and I love you, so don't be getting all offended now). Aussies are more likely to say "bloody Poms" on hearing an English accent than "Oh, how cute, you're British" as I have seen happen so many times. Hell, you Americans even reckon our hideous Australian accent is cute, and that's just wrong!
Anyways, back to the couch. Yes, it's off eBay USA (and there's a whole lot more good stuff to come in the near future, kids, so heads-up). And apparently this armchair and its three seater couch/sofa would be "suited for a den, game room or bonus room". Bonus room? I know y'all have got even more space out in the States than we do in our big brown (currently extra brown courtesy of drought) land. But are you giving away "bonus rooms" with houses now? Is that a special room where you put the bonus offers you pick up at the supermarket, the home of the "Buy one, get one free"? Seriously, I'd really like to know. Cheers.
