Treadmill desk--I want one but I'll order the model with osmo-telepathic'ness! Your hair looks fine, just fine. And the scribbles-- how DO you do that?

Kristan said...

Wow... you are... hardcore! Props, lady.

Now excuse me while I go lie down and read. :)

Aw, J.A.R., you're so nice. My hair, wiggly scribbles and I thank you. :) And Kristan, make no doubt that there will be much slouchy, cookie eating laziness when baby goes down for the night. To the brownies, Batman!

Man. I need a treadmill couch!

Okay, fine. I need a treadmill instead of a couch.

Your hair is fine. Props to drawging while running. That takes freaking commitment.

(Also: Can I just say how jealous I am you can draw that well on a treadmill??? I can't even draw that well normally!)

Stephanie Thornton said...

Okay, you AND Paul have treadmill desks?! I think you're both a little crazy, but I have to say I'm impressed with your mad skills at drawing and treadmilling. Er... walking.

Can I say I go too fast on my treadmill to have a desk? (So not true, but whatever. Just stop making me feel lazy!)

K. Marie Criddle said...

L.T.! Treadmill couch! I love the idea of that SO much that I'm willing to overlook the logistics of such a thing. Mmm...Mega Treadmill Couch...good for exercising and eating a gallon of ice cream simultaneously.

And Stephanie, I'm a little embarrassed to admit how "fast" I'm actually going. It's more like writing and, uh, mildly sauntering. :)

I commend your talent. Treadmills confuse me. They have buttons. I could never figure out how to turn them on much less adjust the speed, much less less write or draw while doing so.

ok, weird. i was just reading an article in the SCBWI magazine about treadmill desks and in theory, i get it, but in actuality, I NEED TO SEE A PICTURE. where does the computer go? how do you not barf while typing? how is your whole drawing not squiggles?

basically, i'm requesting a part 2, tho part 1, squiggly hair and all is adorable!

Ha! Taryn, I totally understand. Treadmill and I had to know each other for a long time before I dared put a desk on him. He's a wiggly beast, but I'm willing to give him a couple second chances (that is, before he throws me off again.)

And Abby! Was that the article by Arthur Slade?? My friend Vicky told me about it but I've yet to read it. Must go find! Also, I have to admit, I'm going SUPER slow. Like, slow enough that there's time to draw a wiggle between jarring steps. But I'll totally post a pic soon. :)

Of course you are not imposing! :) Thank you so much for your kind comment - I appreciate it.

What fun.. I could post a comment while getting a work out. First I guess I need to get a treadmill.

I use one as well--I'm only allowed to check facebook and twitter from my netbook at my treadmill (use StayFocused on Chrome to nuke the internet) and do all my editing standing up. It's awesome! But I agree, walking and writing (actually writing books) is tough!

Cheers!
