Stoned kitty

27-Apr-07

(http://farm1 NULL.static NULL.flickr NULL.com/172/425516011_5a71cb43ce NULL.jpg?v=0)We all have our little creature comforts. Mine is a footstool. Zenobia’s is catnip. Last night she got into the cabinet, pulled out the bag of catnip and scattered it across the floor, all by herself. And thus I join the time-honored tradition of Friday catblogging.

Last post from the old desk

21-Apr-07

(http://cache NULL.boston NULL.com/bonzai-fba/Globe_Photo/2007/04/21/1177187947_9104 NULL.jpg)My new desk (http://www NULL.easychairworkstation NULL.com) arrived yesterday and today I took it out of the box and put it together! I am unreasonably pleased that I was able to do this with no masculine assistance whatsoever. I also cleaned out my old desk (two full bags of trash!) and now all […]

(http://farm1 NULL.static NULL.flickr NULL.com/227/466248207_696ca93d18 NULL.jpg?v=0)I’ve had my “summer” compression stockings for several weeks, waiting for it to finally stop being winter. Today it is sunny and nice out and MOST of the snow on the lawn is gone, so I finally put them on. Unlike my winter tights, these are thigh-highs. I thought I would […]

My Aeron is here!

18-Apr-07

(http://www NULL.hermanmiller NULL.com/hm/content/product_showroom/products/images/P_AER_L122 NULL.jpg)It was the ultimate symbol of late-’90s dot-com excess — companies that never made a penny but spent thousands of dollars to buy these chairs for their employees. Yet there’s a reason they were (and are) popular at the kind of company where you need to spend 14 hours a day in […]

Outdoor chair with a footstool!

16-Apr-07

(http://www NULL.koolestproducts NULL.com/images/PRODUCT/medium/51 NULL.jpg)Let’s just get this over with: I do not camp. Not now, not ever. OK, I did camp once, and when I woke up in the morning and there were slugs all over the tent I was sure that my previous years of non-campitude were the right decision. However, I recognize that […]

What I’m listening to

14-Apr-07

(http://www NULL.celticlounge NULL.com)I love Celtic music — not just traditional stuff, but modern bands like Black 47 and Flogging Molly, which incorporate Celtic themes into rock music. I was excited today to discover Celtic Lounge, (http://www NULL.celticlounge NULL.com) which has an online radio station playing nothing but Celtic music! Yay! I’m discovering some new bands […]

Home office

13-Apr-07

(http://www NULL.easychairworkstation NULL.com/starb/ST_23a NULL.jpg)I’m excited! This week, having resumed gainful employment (yay!), I ordered my EasyChair Workstation (http://www NULL.easychairworkstation NULL.com). I'll be able to position my computer, keyboard, mouse and other necessities within easy reach on a wheeled stand that will rotate over my legs while I have my feet up. I’m also getting a […]

Working from home

10-Apr-07

I’m working from home full-time as of this week. This is wonderful! I wish more organizations would embrace the whole remote-worker thing — I get so much done when I don’t have to spend a lot of the day’s energy driving. Every office needs rules, though. These are mine: 1. Get dressed every day. Just […]

Good news

08-Apr-07

(http://www NULL.ultimatebackstore NULL.com/images/main/leap-work-lounge NULL.jpg)Two pieces, actually. The first and most important (related to the post below) is that my great-nephew does NOT have leukemia. Yay! Which lets me move on to important topics like shopping. I have a new job (another yay!) that lets me work from home. I’m hoping to use my tax refund […]
