Dark Bilious Vapors

But how could I deny that I possess these hands and this body, and withal escape being classed with persons in a state of insanity, whose brains are so disordered and clouded by dark bilious vapors....

02/08/2005: Much Too Easily Amused....

Or The Chair That Got Away: Today I bought myself (emphasis on myself here) a new office chair. Not that I don't have some perfectly good, useful, match my decor, snazzy office chairs already...but...

Those chairs have arms...and I can't quite snuggle up to my work spot in the way I really need to (for my back...and all this blogging...it's muuurder.) So, the chair search began ...

Finally, I found this most perfect drafting chair; no arms, low back, foot rest, cushy cushions...Ahhh...the perfect chair. But now I think I've lost it...before I ever got started...

Lindschair (93k image)

Lindsey has co-opted my chair...and is clearly much too easily amused by it's other feature...the possibility of gaining excessive height at the touch of a button.

"This is sooooo NEAT," she screamed.

What's a mother to do under these circumstances??? Maybe I ought to offer to arm wrestle her for the chair. (Think I'd win??)

You are going to have to do something or she'll injure her wrists typing like that. It really is harmful to the tendons in her lower arms.

Dear Bryan:

This was just a "photo op" for her to "look busy" on her new high-chair cause I agree it would be worse than "muuurder" for her to sit this way at her computer...but thanks for the concern and thoughts. :-)
