Even though I love using my HP Mini 1000 to blog on the go and my Tablet works out well at home, I’ve longed for a nice widescreen monitor and full size keyboard. Since we live in a small one bedroom apartment, adding a desk to our dining room/library/reading room was out of the question and so was setting up shop in full force on the dining room table.

Rather than purchase an Anthro eNook or an Ikea knock off I decided to turn our kitchen table into an office that had a zero footprint when we wanted to have people over for dinner and thus the “Wall Mounted Office” was born.

I purchased a wall mount from Telehook Articulating Mount for $45 from ProVantage (which ships extremely fast) a 19 inch widescreen Acer monitor and a Microsoft keyboard and mouse for a total cost of under $200 excluding the laptop I already had.

The hazards of clearance shopping

michael_scottSo I feel like Micheal Scott…

Amber was picking up some clothes at Aeropostale right before Christmas and I decided to browse through the the clearance table.

I found a pair of sweat pants for only $10! I didn’t bother trying them on because I figured an XL is more than big enough.

Flash Forward to tonite.

I try them on and they seem a little tight. Then I notice that they are flared at the bottom. It didn’t take too long to put 2 and 2 together and realize that Amber just inherited a new pair of pants.

What can I say, it was crazy and they were on a table full of guy’s clothing. Who would have thought that a pair of girl’s pants were sitting in there waiting for an unsuspecting shopper.

At least it’s almost 60 degrees here.
