Songs from the Big Chair May 28, 2008

Posted by skinbad in Economics, Personal Experiences.

Except for a brief and painful fling with a black and sexy thang that ended up leaving me cold, I’m sitting in the office chair I’ve had for almost 14 years. I’ve been asked what I want as far as new office furnishings. Anyone have an office chair their ass just loves to be in?

This is the only possibility I’ve come up with so far. Pony? Easy boy. Easy.

Reminded me of the old Anne Murray tune:

I raised the seat

You let me rest

I tilted back

And scratched my chest

I popped a Coke

And held it on my knee

You held me up

And gave me dignity

Somehow you cradled me



You gave me strength

To sit alone again

To stare outside

All on my own again

You put me high upon a pedestal

So high that I could almost see to purchasing

To purchasing

To purchasing


And I can’t believe it’s you

I can’t believe it’s true

I needed you and you were there

But I just might leave,

I just might leave

I’m not a fool

‘Cause I’ve finally got a chance at a better chair


You held my ass

When it was tired

When I checked Ace

And wasn’t fired

You gave me hope

When I sat on my end

And spammed my friends

With funny jokes no-end

I just laughed then clicked on “send”


Repeat Chorus


You seated me

You seated me

My office chair at work is like this, but made of wood, and the cushion is pretty beat up:

Computer is on a tall counter, not a desk.
Most of the time I stand.

Your Anne Murray bit cracked me up.

I had a chair I loved. Until I came back from Thanksgiving Break in 2006, sat on it as I came into the office, and had the thing collapse on me 5 minutes back on the job.

That was what led to my revival of the exercise/diet regimen I did in HS/College/ROTC. I have lost 25 lbs since then.

I have a few rough ideas for your office space…what’s your budget?

Niiiice, Pupster. I’m fond of the swiveling capability, but I’ll keep it in mind.

Worked Anne Murray at the International Hotel in Vegas (or maybe it was after the Hilton bought it).

She was the opening act for someone and she walked to the microphone and said “I’m going to do a medley of my hit”. She only had one hit at the time, Snowbird. She has a pleasant voice.

From Wiki: On May 11, 2007, Murray was named the world’s best female celebrity golfer by Golf For Women magazine, sporting an 11 handicap

Anne Murray says “Bite me Michael”.
