Finding the right desk is surprisingly difficult in a world where home computers are prolific. Office stores seem to think everybody uses a laptop. I'm a desktop person, for ergonomic reasons. I ended up settling on IKEA's Mikael workstation, which they no longer make, because it had a keyboard tray (I'm 5'4" - they don't seem to make desk heights for women), a place to put the box and subwoofer, and a small footprint. I'll second the "free the knees" rule. I'd like something a bit bigger but couldn't find anything else that fit my requirements.

Fascinating how the American myths of Thanksgiving are perpetuated (see: everything in the "fact" blurb). I was just reading Deconstructing the Myths of “The First Thanksgiving” and, as a Canadian, it astonished me how *detailed* the (really obviously) fake and self-serving myths are. I've only recently been made aware of the American grade school practice of "First Thanksgiving" pageants that are reenacted every year. Up here, no one takes seriously the American version of the "origin" of Thanksgiving. It's really weird to see that myth on AT!
