Show Me Where The Magic Happens

Not THERE you pervs! Your desk!

I'm not sure if this has been done before - it probably has. As they say, there is nothing new under the sun! Still, if it has happened before and you have already done something like it then please bear with me.

I want to see where all of you mess around on the computer. I have visions of my fellow bloggers lounging in luxury with a laptop on one knee and a plate of bon-bons on the other. A half-nekkid man slave (Sawyer!) slowly fans you with a palm frond while simultaneously serving you chilled (preferably alcoholic) beverages. Husbands and children do all the housework and somehow manage to work in a foot rub or two as well... Yes, that's how my imagination works.

Meanwhile, I sit at a laptop that sometimes winds up on my sofa while I'm watching reality tv/mysteries/old movies. My desk has a printer/scanner, several knick-knacks from various travels, a clock, a thesaurus and dictionary and a mail-sorter in the shape of a cat.

I sit next to my sliding glass doors and when I'm on the computer I get to watch the sky lighten in the morning and darken in the evening. I like hearing the bugs and birds outside, but sometimes it's kind of creepy at night because I fear that there is something lurking out there watching me on the computer (overactive imagination anyone?)

Sure, the pink carpet is still there and the walls have yet to be painted - but all in all, its a happy place. Especially when my cup of coffee is full and steaming hot!

Here is a picture of my desk, now - show me yours!! I'm tagging you all - if you've read this post, show us the money! ;)



I will post a pic soon. I sit in my den, with a drink(usually alcoholic) and write. Often interrupted and writing quickly, til I realize that this is supposed to be my outlet.

i echo WM's sentiments. except i don't sit in the basement - that's where hubby sits. i'm in the kitchen/family room. so, unless the kids are sleeping or not around at all, i can't get much done.

which is why i will post a picture of my cube at work to portray where i do most of my blogging from. ;)

I'll have to wait until I get home. But I'll do it. Of course, a picture of my lap might be seen to be obscene, by some people. I have the patteren from my laptop cooked into my upper thighs.

I'm overdue for posting our office makeover. It should be up soon.

It IS fun to see everyone's writing spaces.

Oh, and when Sawyer is done with my'll send him your way.

Your space is way swankier than mine. I don't even have a light because the one on the desk (and I use the term "desk" loosely...think big table) died and I haven't replaced it. I blog by the light of the hallway.
