My Little Desk

We went to IKEA yesterday and I picked up a chair for work and a desk for writing. (I'm still in the process of choosing a desk for work. The poor dining table is buckling under the strain of so much computer equipment.) I bought the same chair that I picked up last year except in green. (The red chair gets usurped when rock band is being played. The drummer has to sit on something! And since it has no arms and it adjusts, it's the perfect chair for that.) So the green chair is now at the new writing desk that I bought. It's a compact one because the downstairs doesn't have all that much room and I don't need that much desk space for writing anyway. (The work desk will have to be bigger because this desk can't hold a laptop and an additional monitol, which is my setup for work.)

I keep it tucked away in against the wall when I'm not using it. And when I'm just surfing the net or writing journal entries, I face it towards the television. Chris doesn't like this desk, however. He finds it too small, only big enough for a 4 year old child. He wasn't so keen on me buying it when we were in IKEA, but I bought it anyway. And I quite like it. It's the perfect size for me. And the little area where the computer tower is supposed to be is a good foot stool since my legs are rather short.

But Chris, he makes fun of my little desk. Since I move it around, he says that I'm capable of marauding all over the living room. No area is safe from my little battle station.

And when his dad called yesterday, he proceeded to comment on the smallness of my desk. And you know what his dad said?

"She's not a giant monster like you."

I love it!!!

I am actually a fan of a very small writing space. It keeps me focused. My favorite writing office was a closet in my first LA apartment.

Anyway, I'm in the same boat as you right now, and I just bought my own rolling desk last week:



Isn't it cute? I roll it in front of my huge glass sliding door to work with a view, or I can roll it into the bedroom if Chris is playing PS2.

Oh, and Chris calls it my "little desk," as in "Did you work at your little desk today?" Hee hee hee. :)

Aww, that's too cute.

When I sit down to my little desk, Chris asks where I'll be marauding to today.

That is cute!!

I like that it rolls and we aren't stuck in a corner somewhere.

Boy, those Chrises. (How do you spell a plural Chris? Crises? Might be more apropos.)

You think that's complicated. In Chris' circle of friends, there's Christian, Christopher, and Christina, all of whom go by Chris.
