Over the past two+ years as you have been following along with this little blog — or for a much, much shorter time if you are not my mother — I’m sure you’ve been dying to know where I make the magic happen: Where the non-sensical words and rambling thoughts flow from my fingertips and onto the interwebs, saving my minions from four minutes of their mundane workday or providing an escape from out-of-control minions of their own.
And no, contrary to what you might think, it’s not from a bar.
And also, I’m totally kidding about thinking you’re dying to know where the magic happens — if you can even call it that. I’m quite sure you do not care.
(And also also, just to be clear, I loove my minions!)
But back to my magic.
Settle down, I’m talking about my home office.
My new instant-bestie Lisa, who I met by chance on Polly Pocket’s airplane on our way to the Erma Bombeck Writer’s Workshop last month (and whose lap I may or may not have sat in while I made her stroke my hair on take-off and landing), and who is quite the accomplished writer/home-office pro herself, has featured my modest home office on her website, Working Naked.
Go take a look . It’s pretty spectacular.
I’m totally kidding (about the “spectacular” part — her website really is spectacular…my office? Not so much, but I am humbled that she featured my inelaborate workspace and appreciate all the love she threw my way).
Oh, and BTdub, the poster on the wall to the left of my desk that looks like one of those douchey “Success” posters? It’s not. I mean it is, but it’s not. It’s a How I Met Your Mother thing. “Awesomeness. When I get sad, I stop being sad and be awesome instead. True story.” If you’re a Barney Stinson fan you’ll get it. If not, carry on. And to answer another of your questions — yes, all those degrees hanging over my desk are there to make me feel important…and to remind me that at one point in my life I had brain cells.
So go check it out, poke around her fabulous site a bit and see what else is there.
I mean, it’s called “Working Naked.”
Winner winner, right??
