Standing Desk

I've been reading a lot about 'standing desks' - desks that are tall enough to stand at and work. It sounds like a good idea. I spend entirely too much time at my computer, lulled into a trance, following link after link, reading articles I'll never remember. I could use to be a little less comfortable at the computer! Plus if you're standing you're making your muscles work to hold yourself up, instead of slouching into a lump, chin on hand, semi-comatose (I'm just describing myself - not necessarily anyone else!)

So I went out in the garage and stirred up a few scraps and built this in about 20 minutes, just to see how the concept works. I can already tell it's a little tall - I could take about 4 inches off of it and it would be more comfortable to type.

Not that this will stop me from taking my laptop out to the couch and vegging out!

Wow. That's a neat idea. I'm a laptop in the bed kind of person. So the semi-comatose, slouching lump description fits me pretty well. gak!
