Sprucing Up The Hut...

There's been a lot of activity going on here at BRAINCHEESE WORLD HEADQUARTERS HUT ...thus my absence in the blogging world. Well, that and I've been listening to the gentle breeze of many mindless thoughts blowing through my brain with nothing more important to report than a daily passing of flatus. I also spent way too many hours at work last week...and, although the overtime/comp time pay is good, let's just say being at work rather than being in my bed continuing my Rip Van Winkle lifestyle of snoozing my life away just ISN'T my idea of a *good time*.

I noticed today my almighty "stats" have declined...hardly ANYONE has been coming to BrainCheese in search of their *stage name*, or *Jesus Camp*, or *normal MRI spines*, or...well, searching for anything MEANINGFUL. Which I kid myself in saying ANYONE comes to this blog in search of meaning. LOL

I really HAVE had an incredibly busy week and my typical late night rendezvous with my keyboard has had to take a back seat (isn't the *back seat* typically where rendezvous TAKES place?!?)...I've also been sprucing up the hut and doing some updates on the "news room", where all the earth-shattering and provocative posting takes place inside the compound of the BRAINCHEESE WORLD HEADQUARTERS HUT (except for the posts I do from the comfortable luxury of my bed via laptop...ah, like NOW).

I finally (and I DO mean FINALLY...3 1/2 years was long enough doncha think?) purchased a new computer chair to replace the slatted-butt folding chair I have been sitting on, which left permanent crease indentations on my backside as my fat arse oozed through the thin strips of wood I precariously balanced upon. My new LUXURY padded, high back, adjustable with arms chair (which I practically STOLE from Orifice Depot, combining three coupons and walking out for 1/2 the price! WOOHOO!) is so comfortable I am now having to periodically slap myself in the face to keep from falling asleep at my keyboard. And (oh, the excitement doesn't end here), I just set up my latest LCD monitor with new speakers on my limping desktop, "Old Faithful", to go along with my comfy-butt chair! Dear Lord...I can now SEE my computer screen. Who knew?!?

The Board Of Directors at BRAINCHEESE WORLD HEADQUARTERS HUT has also approved the upcoming purchase of a new computer desk so that its dedicated Editor and Chief might have a better ergonomic keyboard surface (tilted and padded...nothing but the best for the newsroom) upon which to type. The current *I've-had-it-since-grade-school-desk* I type from just hasn't been doing my neck and arms any favors. If this keeps up, I imagine the purchases I am making will most certainly be a major catalyst in turning our country's failing economy around (yes, Wall Street...I WOULD like the honor of ringing that opening bell).

I had no IDEA a side effect of going off my Multiple Sclerosis medication would be to become "spendy and trendy"...whatever. I'll be back this week in the newsroom. I'm just giving you fair warning...

Gotta spend that paycheck somewhere so it may as well be on your arse (as opposed to your belly!)

Glad you treated yourself to new stuff. Also want to mention FREECYCLE.COM to you if you are willing to get in the car to go pick up free stuff. Put in your zip code and check the box about how many miles you are willing to travel out of it to get free stuff and you are set up.

I love this site and have received many "new to me" things for the office and the house. Nothing like a NEW computer chair but I like to get "new to me" stuff for FREE.

Yes, going off meds leads to spending sprees, but they are nice, aren't they??? It is also nice to have the money to pay the bill when it comes in.

Nice to see you are able to post after long workweek. You are better than I.

Braincheese--

Thank you so much for the morning chuckle. I can't get the visual of you teetering on some rickety chair out of my mind. Is it similar to the one in the background of the posted photo? I always like a random chair in the woods..

Happy MLK Day!

Fondly,

Jen

Hey, your stats don't capture all of us who subscribe to your rss feed. We're here reading even if we don't hit your site daily. :)

You are very brave to be spending money so brazenly in this economy--too much Mountain Dew and you lost your head?

Nice. Good to see you back. Enjoy the improvements :)

WE PEEPS can hardly wait to see the new ideas, sage advice, witty and sarcastic words that spring forth from d BIG Cheese's holes in her head!

And when picking out your new desk be sure to keep POD's comfort in mind...she deserves a new throne on your new desk. As for YOUR throne...just keep the old since it's only used for flushing the foul smelling plump brown roll of gush spewing out your backside hole. (you are welcome for the reminder of your magnificence)

Cheers Dew U!
