Workspace

Jenn, the proprietress of new-to-me blog “I Hate Whine!” posted a pic of her workspace with the oh-so-intriguing title of “Now Show Me Yours!” Well, OK. Here it is:

This is a pretty quick, easy, and fun sort of meme…so play along if ya want. Jenn has only stipulated one rule: Don’t clean up first. Let’s see it, warts and all. My warts include an exhausted blister pack of Nicorette gum (still on it, better than cigarettes), my Swiss Army knife, a couple of paper towels, miscellaneous Very Important Papers (under the monitor and on my treasured “Directors Bitter” ashtray, which was purloined liberated from an Oxford, UK pub on New Years Eve of 199x and is now a catch-all for various and sundry things), my magnifying glass (on top of the pile under the window) for reading the oh-so-small print in my new camera manual (behind the coffee cup, on the left), a couple of pens, q-tips, a can of office implements, canned air for dusting, yadda, yadda, yadda.

Not too bad, I guess. It could be worse. ;-)

Update, 06/19/2006 1910 hrs: Not to worry, Jenny. Delicious!

  1. That's a nice work area, Buck. I'm somewhat worried that your pants are hung over the chair, as opposed to on your ass, but, hey, maybe you have more than one pair :-)

  3. I'm impressed! Not only do you use nice dishes, but one for the main course, the salad, AND the bread! Looks like all you need is a candle and a glass of wine! LOL!

    Funny you should mention that, Jim. Whereas I DO have more than one pair of Levis, I tend to hang out in the summer months in a state of dress not conducive exactly appropriate for receiving company. Jenny can verify that, as she dropped by just as I was pouring my second cup this morning and had to cool her heels while I got "presentable." And only barely, at that.

    Mom. It's ALL Mom. I'm better than housebroke, due entirely to her, ya know. And I'll have you know that's a fruity, young, and quite piquant Dr. Pepper (vintage 2008, fresh from the commissary... today). Who needs wine? ;-)

    Thanks SO much, Jenny. That brisket was sooo tender, and there's NOTHING like real mashed taters!

    Some day I'll learn to proof my comments before I hit "publish." But I ain't gonna re-do it. Just ignore the "conducive."

  10. Your workspace is so much neater than mine. I wonder what our spaces say about our personalities.

    Lindz and Reagan came by late last night and caught Toby sitting in his recliner wearing just a pair of gray shorts. He had the laptop in his lap covering the shorts. It looked very much like he was naked. Lindz snapped a phone-photo of him and teased him pretty seriously.

    And I was afraid you were gonna beat me up for my link/comment about yours! ;-)

    I'll bet Toby loved the teasing, too. Us guys are like that.
