I can't find the remote control and it's going to make me nuts. What did we do before? Did we really GET UP and turn the volume up and down for commercials? Or did we suffer through the volume BLARE when they're on, just waiting for the TV show to come back and the volume return to a bearable level?

It's bad form, I know, but I do often write with the TV quietly on in the background. I'm sitting perched in the living room, laptop on my article/file crate that's on a stepstool. (Not as precarious as it sounds.) I turned Weather Channel down long ago so I could concentrate on something (someone has written my dissertation AGAIN - not really but it took me a while to calm down) but now I want to switch to CNN because the ship captain has been retrieved alive (I heard on a CNN email alert) but I'll have to go over and change the channel and then it'll be up and down volume over and over and over.


In the meantime, here's a picture of my work desk (where I am not at this moment):

You know you're a knitter when...

(Found it. Had dropped down into the crate of folders/articles. Peace reigns at last.)
