shelf chair transit thing

whoever thought it was a good idea to combine a book shelf, a chair and a car? It must be Nils Holger Moormann, creator of the Bookinist. Hey, there’s even a built-in lamp and cupholder. They forgot to include a compartment for little gnomes to pop out and tell you how stupid this thing is.

I think it’s beautiful. I was about to order one, but then I noticed on the close up of the tire the words “Not for highway use”. What’s the use in a chair if you can’t sit it in the middle of the highway?

I love how your title calls it a thing. How about “utterly stupid shelf chair transit thing”? It kinda reminds me of Homer’s custom chair/toilet

hey moose! I was in Elmhurst this past weekend, and my dad showed me some cicadas he dug up in the backyard when doing some gardening. I hope you know that the cicadas are going to be crazy nutso in Elmhurst. I remember it vividly from 17 years ago. The air was humming, and the bugs were dropping from the trees in droves. Be ready.

I’ve noticed a lot of holes in my yard as well, but wasn’t sure what they were about… Interesting.

It’s funny though because my recollection of the last cicada explosion was when I was maybe 6 or so. Given my age, that obviously doesn’t work out with the 17 year rule though.

I’m wondering if the cicadas in Peoria are on a different cycle than the ones in Chicago. I read somehwere that there are different groups of cicadas called broods and that the one in Chicago is known as Brood 13. Maybe Peoria is home to a different brood.

My parents’ back yard is full of holes, too. My sister got married two weeks ago, and we were taking the photos in our back yard in front of a tree, and the heels of our shoes [the ladies’s shoes, I mean] kept sinking into the holes. It was kind of creepy. My dad says they are cicada holes. So there you have it.
