Okay… so there was one little snag in our trip to Ikea today. jay & I both got the same desk setup, it’s a pretty good one. He’s already put his together, but it’s too late to do mine. I did put my chair together though… it’s not bad, it’s much nicer than the kitchen chair I’ve been using for the past couple of years.

This means that I’m going to have a writing desk… an empty desk that I can just sit at and write if I want to. Now if only I had a papazan chair I’d be set… comfy writing chair that’s my space, where no one’s allowed in without asking permission (except maybe the cats, I can’t do much about them when they choose not to understand english.) Mmmm… papazan…

The one stupid thing I managed to do all night was when buying the desks. They came in two parts, the desk part and the top shelf part. I didn’t really think much about it when we grabbed the desks – we just hauled out the extremely heavy boxes from the shelves in the Ikea warehouse and dumped them on our carts, and then went off to pay for our stuff. Well, I noticed, after we had paid for it all and we were waiting for our chairs to arrive from the furniture pickup department, that we had picked up two desks in Beech Finish and two desk shelving units in Birch finish. We were too tired at that point to haul them back in to exchange them for matching colours… so we’re going to be unique. Yeah, that’s it… unique. If I could paint, I would paint the upper part of my desk with pretty colours and stuff… but I can’t do anything visually artistic. Maybe I should find a six-year-old to finger paint on it for me. It looks pretty silly, actually, and I feel like a dumbass for not double-checking it before we left the store. too tired… too damn tired.

Jay picked up Baldur’s Gate II. It requires, for a full install, 2.5 Gig of hard drive space. That’s… a whole lot. Good thing he’s got 20 Gig free…

Yep, this chair is definitely a lot more comfortable.
