Office 2010 02 20 003
So, having spent all day cleaning my office, here is the clean office I got as my return on the bargain. Or at least, this is one side of the room. (There's a Hugo and a couple of a cheeseboards in the background. The Hugo is being scaled by a Suckmonkey. I keep hoping the rocketship will drain the power from the Suckmonkey, but it hasn't happened yet. At least the damned thing is off my back. Also in the picture, a map of 16th century Canterbury (why ever would I have that?), a plastic model of a spotted draught horse, and the Inevitable Tea Carafe.(Kousmichoff Tchai, if you were wondering.)

Also, the new bookshelf, loaded up with books, and my slippers.

And the shoggoth, useful for dusting, as rikibeth will attest.

Below, there are views of the Other Side Of The Office, including the Other Desk (with desktop computer, scanner, printer, etc--the scanner needs to be hooked up, but I did finally get the printer vacuumed out today) and a close-up of the bookshelf, with Fearless Kjitten sacked out in the sling chair by the window.

I have taped up my kjitten-nibbled laptop cord, and it seems to be working for now. And I did finally find my backup laptop battery, for those following the saga on Twitter.

It was on top of the refrigerator.

Well, of course. Where else would it be?

(This is one of the places I write books. Previously, of course, we have seen the library downstairs, and its various writer perches. And my bed.

You never know where you're going to feel like holing up with a nice manuscript.

ETA: And here's another place books get written, and two of my coworkers:

My brother once finally found his TV remote *in* the refrigerator.
Hey! I like where you've moved the pale cabinet! And are those new IKEA cubes?

It looks like the kjtten is pining for the boxes. I think the sling chair is better suited for cat-cradling than for my butt, though. When I tried to sit down in it, it decided to be a lot olwer than I expected. Oof!

Yay for vacuuming out the printer!
No, it's the bookcase TBRE and I salvaged from the curb. Somebody down the block was tossing it. It fits under the desk perfectly.

Clean office!

The kjitten is in the doghouse. He has taken to snacking on laptop cords.
Bad kjtten. Snacking on laptop cords is not good for the kjtten OR the laptop.

Doghouse, not dog mouth though, I take it? The GRD will continue to be disappointed.
Oh, and the trick with the sling chair is to lean back in it and put your feet up. *g*
Now I know.
You grow your kjittens big in Connecticut.
He's around 12 pounds now, I think. at 10 months.
hey! Looking good! :D

sexy coworkers. ;)
Regarding the coworker at the foot of the bed: after his earlier trick, I'm surprised he isn't Fearless Mjittens.
The temptation is there, lemme tell ya.
It was on top of the refrigerator.

Well, of course. Where else would it be?

(This is one of the places I write books.

I believe Thomas Wolfe used to write standing up, leaning on the top of a refrigerator. Tall writers are tall.
Or have short refrigerators.
But, but your office is all tidy and stuff!

And look at all those beautiful, gleaming stacks of books. I lust.

She is adorable and wee and has deadly lasers!
Though she be but small, she is mighty.
The Fearless Kjitten is also adorable but he is far from wee. Also he is naughty.
