Tom
When I first visited the thread it was a vote but now when I visit I get the results so maybe the board somehow thinks you have voted because you posted on this thread. I can't answer that one, only Doug can. No problem since we know what you would have voted I guess. Interesting though

I will have to pick Calvin and Hobbes as I have a few toys decorating my monitor to keep the atmosphere light hearted. I also have lots of markers, stamps, ink pads, color paper, glue, scissors, cutting boards (for the greeting cards I make) and so on. That and I like Calvin’s vivid imagination.

As for Tom’s problem not being able to vote. I had posted twice to this thread without voting and could still vote. Tom did you view the results before voting? Perhaps that locks up the voting option? Doug?

Right now I'm more interested in hearing from DJ about her "husbands" (plural)

"between my work and my husbands"




I'm afraid that even Oscar would move out of my office to find a neater garbage can...

Well C.J., I either rule a very unique harem or that was a possesive minus the apostrophe. Must be the latter.

Actually, my husband (singular) telecommutes to work sometimes via his home computer set up. I have been lucky lately because the project he is on at this time requires his physical presents at work. That leaves me with this wonderous window on the world all to myself during the day. That may change again in a few months and my work space will be 10 times the clutter it is now.

My husband's idea of a computer is "au-natural" I haven't seen a cover on the cpu since the day he pieced it together. He loves to see the guts of the thing. I love clean lines and dust free components. Then there is an entire wall of reference books and CD and speakers everywhere. The computer table takes up most of the room because he decided he liked a U shaped work desk so he could reach everything. That translates to everything being at arms reach or spread out all over the place. I gave up trying to keep it clean. The minute he sees a clean spot he fills it. Did I mention his name is "Oscar"? Just kidding

DJ,

Your husbands part of your workspace meets with my total approval. None of this spit and polish and 'order', bring on spiders webs, dust and a deep layer of clutter to make the artist feel at home.
To reach my seat I traverse stacks of books of all types, a few hundred cd's and cdr's and boxes of hydrological files. Several large spiders that like the heat look benignly down upon me from the beams above. On one wall sit two wardrobes full of Scotch Whisky brought back as duty free from my parents many holidays years ago but never drunk. And thats it, heaven !

Regards

When I see the votes Oscar is getting, I have to believe we all pretty much work in the same environment. (Minus the wall of Scotch Whiskey) or work might not get done.
Glad to hear our office is not the only messy domain. You know, as in misery loves company.

I have to agree with Oscar as well. As hard as I try I just can't seem to keep my desk tidy. I thought the desk was too small so had a larger on made but all that does is give me more room for piles of junk.My main pile of "junk" is a pile of printouts of hints and tips. I print them out so that I can refer back to them if needed but there are so many I find it hard to find what I want and just go back to the site I found them on. One day I'll sort it all out.
