ScreenShot2012 09 18at13548PMA Kangaroo - Not a living, jumping, boxing, marsupial. This kangaroo is the solution for people who want to stand at work. Made by Ergo Desktop, the Kangaroo Pro is an adjustable height desk unit that sits atop your boring sit-down desk. There’s really nothing else on the market like it. These are handmade in Ohio and shipped entirely assembled. Ergo Desktop has various models and finishes to match your office and the size of your computer. Perfect for folks who work eight hours a day and don’t want to sit themselves into back problems later in life. These are also a good option if your workplace is permanently affixed with desks of the sitting variety. You know I’m a big proponent of standing at work. This is your chance to win a standing workstation. Retail value: $499.

The Contest:

Another oldie, but goodie, I haven’t held this contest since 2010. Originally inspired by a Time photo montage featuring families from around the world surrounded by a week’s worth of their groceries, I told readers to surround themselves with a week’s worth of their Primal groceries. Check out the results from 2010:

So round up the kids (or parents, or fiance, or roommates) and toss all the groceries on the table, because I want people to see “What Grok Eats.” The pictures don’t have to be fancy, nor do they have to be 100% Primal (or even 80%, just so long as people can see what you eat in a week). Mad props go to the most Primal family, but the winner will be selected in a random drawing, so don’t feel obliged to play “Keeping up with the Grokses.” Email me the picturePlease use the email subject heading “Grocery Submission”. Otherwise, there’s a good chance I may completely miss your submission.

As long as there are groceries on the table and smiling faces, you’re entered to win.

How the Winner Will Be Determined:

A random drawing will be held among all entrants who submit adequate photos.

You want comments? We got comments:

Imagine you’re George Clooney. Take a moment to admire your grooming and wit. Okay, now imagine someone walks up to you and asks, “What’s your name?” You say, “I’m George Clooney.” Or maybe you say, “I’m the Clooninator!” You don’t say “I’m George of George Clooney Sells Movies Blog” and you certainly don’t say, “I’m Clooney Weight Loss Plan”. So while spam is technically meat, it ain’t anywhere near Primal. Please nickname yourself something your friends would call you.

  1. I own the Kangaroo standing desktop. This thing will last a lifetime. It is solid and works fantastic. Great prize!

  2. I personally use a coffee table for a desk. It’s super comfortable in the sense that I don’t feel like I’m destroying my hips and back using the computer.

    Great prizes by the way!

  5. Is that really supposed to read 2 lbs of fresh fish ~$100 value? Seems pretty steep, even for really great fish…

    • It’s probably due to shipping.. overnight shipping is crazy… but it does sound funny… 2lbs ~ $100 value.. ;)

  6. Thanks for the link to the Kangaroo. I told my boss the other day that I wish I could have standing work station for when I’m not with clients. TADAAA!!! I sent him a link to the page and a Kangaroo has been ordered for me! Thinking about getting one for the home office now.
