My View of the World
While I was sitting here at my desk I thought it has been a while since I have had a picture on the LJ, so I decided to give you all a glimpse into what I see for over eight hours a day. So I took a picture of part of my desk.
Things to notice:
Nalgene water bottle (hasn't been washed in I don't know how long)
MS Natural keyboard (for ergonomics)
whiteboard (spot of much amusement)
pictures (to remind me of the outside world)
rearview mirror (upper left part of monitor)
Jay-Bo menu (pink paper)
radio (always on WBCN)
two pinwheels (top corners of monitor)
Lord of the Rings desk calendar c/o John (gotta know the date )
headphones (so the guys at work don't kill me for playing too much Dave)
It occurred to me that while I chat with a lot of people everyday, in most cases I have no idea what the room looks like where they are chatting from. I find that I have a picture in my head about what people's offices and dorm rooms, but I am sure it isn't even close to what they actually look like. So if you have access to a digital camera, either post it on your LJ's or send it to me so I can clear up that picture in my mind. Perhaps we need a sequence in bLOggErS of everybody's typical posting environment to establish characters.
BoCaNO last night was good. We started at the Beantown Pub, but since they don't have seating there, we decided to finish the night at RockBottom. Nothing about the conversation was extraordinary, with the exception of our ordering food. Some of us, me included tend to order like Sally from When Harry Met Sally, for example Brewer's Club sandwich w/o lettuce and tomatoes, but with the caesar salad OR Chicken Fried Chicken w/o gravy, onions or coleslaw. We sound like poster children for Burger King's "Get it your way" slogan.
Quote of the night: Fajitas don't seem like the type of food Mexican's would eat, it just seems like too much work for such lazy people.
So we sailed up to the sun
Till we found the sea of green
And we lived beneath the waves
In our yellow submarine
-John Lennon & Paul McCartney
