Rainy Saturday (and thanks)

First off, you guys are awesome when it comes to crossing your fingers or doing whatever it is you did yesterday. Beth is happily still employed. She was faced with the possibility of getting laid off but she emerged unscathed at the end of the day. Thank you all for the positive vibes and good wishes!

Its a chilly, rainy Saturday. We've been out most of the morning looking for new office chairs and dishwashers. Thrilling, no?

i just bought a new office-y type chair, at ikea.

i think i might be in love with it. it passed all of the tests.

well, there's only one test, with two parts.

can i sit indian style 1, without hurting my ankle bones on a hard surface and 2, still be able to pull out the keyboard tray without it resting directly on my thighs?

if you look at ikea.com, it's called allak.

Congrats to Beth.

Looking at new office chairs and dishwashers isn't such a bad thing as long as you're still gainfully employed.

Thrilling? Hmmm... Office chairs, yes. Dishwashers, not so much.

Yay for Beth! I am firmly convinced that good vibrations from random internet people can make great things happen.
