BOX

This $1,195 desk is BLOWING MY MIND OUT THE WINDOW

a wooden box

the box opens up and various pieces slide out to form a huge desk with cubbyholes and even a swing-out light

It is like having a desk that is a hidden staircase for doing magic made by a WIZARD.

(more here)

I MEAN LOOK AT THE LIGHT THAT SWIVELS OUT. AND THE CUBBIES. DEAR GOD, THE CUBBIES.

You could put a kitten in each one to look at you.

In my church, the Sabbath is for watching 90s teen movies about manic depression and cleaning house.

I have Crossroads and Boys on the Side queued up.
