Also, my old mini-desk had a junk drawer that I loved, because it reminded me of the junk drawer I used to have growing up. New desk has potentially HUGE drawers, but it turns out they're just there for file folders, and are open on the sides. I could probably take some pieces of plywood and turn them into full drawers, but will I? Doubtful.
Anyway, I'm feeling a mixture of happiness and sadness about the new desk. Green got the old one. I wish there were a way to raise this bugger up a few inches, that would improve things dramatically. A new desk CHAIR wouldn't hurt either, but the one I want is $400 (I'm unwilling to thrift that).
Oh yeah, I don't think I mentioned that I got New Desk at the thrift store - $40. Decent price for a huge piece of furniture! I'm sure I will adjust to its quirks soon enough.
