For Christmas, I received the usual television sets and movies, but what I really enjoyed was getting a new office chair. Yeah, something pretty simple, but man is it appreciated. My old chair had started cracking at the base, making me sit at an angle while simultaneously dipping backwards. Needless to say, it was not an ideal situation. In order to do any work at the computer, I had to sit at the very edge of the seat, where all the padding had worn down. Made for some painful haunches!
My parents noticed my predicament a few weeks back and lent me a folding chair in the meantime. The idea being that we would look for a new chair once the Christmas shopping was under control. That trip never happened, for me at least! Nope, on Christmas day, mom and dad surprised me with a large box from Staples. The new chair! I refrained from assembling it then and there, as I still had to get it back to the apartment that night. Easier to fit a box in the car rather than a chair.
Once assembled? Let me tell you, this is a comfy chair.
