By George I Think I've Got It

Back in the day, my writing desk housed an Internet-free laptop, paper, pen and a Wonder Woman mug. As our bills increased along with coupons and Tim's mapping business, that once simple set-up, got not so simple. Add to it my formulas and study materials and we're talking, yikes. Last night, I hatched a plan to resolve the cross contamination issues.

Here's-a-whadda-I'm-a-gonna-do (say that tens times fast and with an Italian accent).

Since, bills, budget and Tim's business don't belong in my writing space (I am a minimalist writer), and my writing doesn't belong in the house, budget and bills area (not so minimalist) - I'm going on the hunt for a second desk, low-cost, nothing fancy. Time to check thrift stores and sales. Once located, my writing desk will return to the quiet area of the bedroom, where I can wake and get straight to work on a few new super secret projects. Insert, muhahaha here.

PS: I don't know where my legs are?

PPS: Legs or no legs, I'm very happy with this plan.

    Does Tim know?

    And, as always when someone asks that question, your legs are standing right behind you, holding a very large knife/meat cleaver/chainsaw...

  5. If you don't know where your legs are, you've got yourself into a Hannibal Lecter type situation.

  6. Have you found your legs yet? They are always the last place you look.

  7. Funny watching GMA this morning, I commented that I would hate to sit at the table where everyone can see their legs. Maybe yours are there as well.

    1. Is that where all the women have to show off their legs?

    2. Well they don't have to, it's just where they are sitting, 4 or 5 of them round this table. It's just incidental that you can see their legs, the men's legs are there too of course.

  8. Great plan. I love it. You can find some pretty neat stuff at the thrift shops. And if you don't like how it looks, you can always paint it and make it new.

    What happened with the legs? Any sight of them yet?

    1. No sign of them yet. But Tim posted LEG LOST signs on all the telephone poles.

    1. Thanks. After this post, a friend emailed me that she had a desk she no longer needed, and I could have it for free. Cool beaners.

      Happy Weekend.
