My new desk.

Behold: my office/bedroom as it presently stand

How flipping awesome is my life?

Yes, two bruises and a bleeding cut on my hand later, that is my new desk (“some assembly required,” shit I guess. so).

It’s right beside my sitting desk so I can put in a few miles in the morning, rest for a bit, get in some push ups and pull ups, and then put in several more in the afternoon/evening, all while reading, researching, preparing for talks, and writing.  :)  I’ve burned 75 calories just writing this post!

If Hitchens has left any bits of god intact (which is a big if), I want to be ready to pummel the rest when it’s my turn.

You guys are wonderful.

    You know, Hitch et all have done a great job crushing the Western Christian gawd thing, and yes I understand that’s the culture so that’s what we talk about…I get that. I really do and I have no problem with it. However…for interest I’d once in a while like to see the odd thing about some Eastern Religions, and some ‘arguments’ for and against things like Hinduism, or Buhdists…or something well outside my own knowledge. I’ve read a little bit here and there, but never a rebuke or ‘take apart’ in the Hitch/Eberhard style (yes, I equate the two in many good ways) of these. Wanna throw down China Town style?

    If you didn’t bleed, then it wasn’t work! That’s what I always tell myself. Sure beats thinking that I’m some sort of awkward oaf.

    Awesome. Your setup looks a lot like mine, except that you have a real desktop on your treadmill, and I just have a cardboard box sitting across the hand rails. Do you have a fitbit? You should get one so you can show off your godlike steps per day.

  • IslandBrewer

    It’s not just the walking that’s good for you. Sitting for prolonged periods have been found to be detrimental, so merely standing at a computer is good for you.

    Awesome! You’ve inspired me, JT. I have to get one.

    I don’t know what your pet situation might be, but my cat has a habit of batting the safety magnet out of place, unexpectedly stopping the treadmill, and also pushing the button that accelerates me from 2.5 mph to 10 mph.

    Just something to watch out for.

    I want a treadmill desk myself… I play so many video games that I’d have ripped legs with one.

    I’ve always been a little mystified by people who claim to be able to keep their hands steady enough to make this work.
