Get Out

I think my office chair is trying to tell me something.  It is stuck in this position. 

Anyone got a good read on what it's saying?  (I have learned through the years that I often misinterpret body language.)

Ten Things about me, the High School Version

1.  I knit my first sweater in high school. It was a sweet teal 50's cardigan.  I wish I still had it.
2.  I used to stay after school in the sewing lab just about every day.
3.  Bridget Finnegan used to pass me hilarious notes with full illustration in Mr Stoykovich's Algebra II & Trig class.  Her notes keep coming, and they're even funnier today.
4.  Once a year I get together with my high school girlfriends for a long weekend.  It's a tradition we started about 5 years ago, and we all cherish the event.
5.  My family moved out of district in my sophomore year, but my parents paid tuition so that I could stay enrolled in my same school.  I was a commuter at the age of 16.
6.  I stunk at team sports.  Still do.  Especially if there's a ball involved.
7.  I currently live next door to the home where I lived  in 1982.

8.  Bridget started my love of cartooning.
9.  My second sweater was a bulky garter stitch pullover with a stockinette panel featuring a duplicate stitch deer.  It was my first self-designed sweater.
10.  Apparently I knew where I wanted to be and what I wanted to do from an early age.  It's so good to be here.
