So here's a question -- does my office need a comfy armchair? I think yes -- I have two hours between classes, and yesterday I sat tilted back in my desk chair and perched my feet up my desk to read, which was okay, but not ideal. I'm thinking that if I'm going to be in that office for three years (possibly more, see: renewable contract), it's probably worth investing in an armchair and ottoman. If I get rid of that regular chair in the corner, I think I can squeeze them in there. Nothing fancy, but I'm guessing I can find something decent at Target or IKEA. That's justifiable, right? (Wow -- just looked for Target armchairs on Amazon, and this one is so not the kind I need, but it's startlingly lovely
for the price, and sturdy enough for outdoor use (that'd be the rubberwood/plywood combination); I wish I had an excuse to buy it.)
I did go look at the UIC surplus warehouse to see if they'd provide one for free, but there was nary an armchair to be found -- mostly many many metal filing cabinets, so if I wanted to fill my office with those...
How's it look?
I think this is my favorite part of the decorating, actually -- adding several XKCD comics to my door. :-) Note the goofy title too: Clinical Assistant Professor. People keep asking me whether it's a joint appointment with the hospital...I wonder what they think I teach!
