Sitting down

I was standing up. It occurred to me that a more comfortable posture would be preferable. I located a chair and sat down.

    oh dear i missed it.. the moment when you decide to sit down.
    since there’s no new entry, are you still sitting down?
    I believe it is a chair with little rollers so you can move around without compromising your sitting down decision.

    I read some of your blog. It made me smile slightly. I then decided I would leave a comment, which I am doing.

    This blog is too fast-paced for me. I’m busy enough already. In a world with a 24×7 news cycle, who has the time to read this much???

    my chair spins and is blue. there is a stain on it as i once spilled tea on it and didn’t clean it up straight away. I’d like a new chair.

    Sometimes my butt hurts when I sit in the wrong position, so I change it.

  7. Joshua Taylor says:

    why is it taking so long to get up from the chair? that was last year man!

    10 years of dullness to date and hopefully more to come. Cheers. (I see you now have something to sit down and relax about.)

    sitting, standing, laying down they are all basically the same the impetrable motion of the body. Your body unintentionally thinks to itself that oh hey im tired of doing this so lets do this instead but if you dont let your mind wonder or think then your body never says or thinks that its tired of one thing and needs another

    I do not love this, nor do I hate it.

    Going on 11 months of sitting…I wonder if you have contacted Guiness Book of World Records?

    Ready to stand yet?

    I noticed that you also sat down in 2003, on the 22nd of May.

    This cannot be the whole story. What are you hiding?

  18. Thomas says:

    I was about to leave my computer, then I located this site. After reading the latest post, I decided to leave a comment on it after finding it uninteresting. Afterwards, I stood up and walked away.

    I am sitting in a class. I am glad we get to sit during class. We are learning about blogs, and this is my first reply. So I’m going to just sit here until class ends and go and sit in my next class.

    Story of my life.

  24. Amanda says:

    I feel I need to post an interesting comment. I was standing up. I wanted to sit down. But then I realized my life would be more interesting if I did something adventurous. So I took a step 6 inches to the right! Unlike you dull creatures, I am living like to the fullest.

    how do u get so many comments om such a boring blog?

  26. Buddhaman says:

    What happened next? There has been no entry for 18 months. Did you die of boredom or can you just not be arsed to write any more? Such a shame if so – this blog MUST continue.

  27. Snaarman says:

    Following your advice from November 2003, I used the kettle to boil some water. I am now sitting down.

  28. Coburn says:

    I posted last Sept in class about sitting at my computer. Now I am sitting at home on my computer. I had better stand up and stretch and sit back down. Then I will stand up again and go sit somewhere else and sit.

    this is making me laugh so so hard !

  30. arit says:

    What is comfortable now may not be comfortable later.

  31. Michael says:

    This continuing silence is becoming very interesting. What has happened? I am biting my fingernails. Did you die in an uninteresting way?

  32. Walter Williams says:

    I read the title of your blog. Got me interested to read. I read the lines. I suddenly smiled. After a few minutes of reading, I got here in the comment box and type this comment I have. Thanks

  33. Tom says:

    What is wrong with you.

  34. Preston says:

    You have shown a wise and deep understanding of making smart decisions. You seem to know such deep knowledge of sitting, rather than standing with your legs supporting all your weight. I cannot wait for your next move. I am on the edge of my seat of my chair that I had decided to sit in when I did not want to stand anymore, just like you.

    This blog is the most dullest of dull things that I have ever seen! It is so dull, that even a librarian (and they are incredibly dull) would find it too dull for themselves!!! I rate this blog officially DULL!

    I was hungry. It was lunchtime, so i made a sandwich. I got a peice of bread and put a peice of ham on it. Then I put another peice of bread on top. Then I ate it and poured a glass of water. I drank the water. Then I went and watched tv.

    I was watching Monty Python’s ‘Life of Brian’ this evening (sitting, except for when I went to the fridge for a beer.) There was a man on the film who said that people who get to sit down should consider themselves fortunate. He claimed that such people don’t even realise they are living.
