So a couple of you have shared pics of different parts of your homes and that gave me an idea to share as well. Since I can never think of anything interesting to say, I thought I snap some pics of my office at work, so you can all see the glamorous way I spend my days.

I'll put most behind the cut so you don't have to be spammed with my terrible photography (my fine motor skills suck so they are kinda fuzzy...damn shakey hands!)

We begin, as I do each weekday morning, at my personal sigle cup coffee maker. It was a gift from my boss and some co-workers and I love it. Makes coffee in the morning and tea in the afternoon. (some of you may recognize my S&H travel mug from last year's SHarecon)

Next I greet my computer. Heloooo Dean & Cas (and hai Gumby and Pokey!)

I look to my left, against the other wall is a file cabinet. Covered with vacation pics and swag and stuff from fandom

Top of file cabinet, pics of Dad, BFF, cat, another vaction photo (Venice Beach), S&H puzzle in back. And monkeys.
Yes, I collect monkeys. Don't judge me.

Oh Noes! That giant zebra is going to destroy my mini-Stonehenge. Zebrapocolypse!!

Top left of cabinet.  Fake J2 Pic is fake. But the autographed photo of PMG is very genuine. Procured for me by a former
co-worker whose dad is like his second cousin or something.

Sorry. Y'all have to tilt our head sideways for this one. More vacation and fan swag. Oh Hi! Callum and Paul.

Finally, the inside-back of my office door. Next to David's poster are some pics my boss' daughter drew for me. The top
one is supposed to be me, I think. IDK

There you have it. A workday in the life of me. Bet you're all jealous now. Heh.

Heh. Thanks. Gotta get better at using my new digital camera before Chicago Con in Octtober.

Hey...did I steal those S&H motivational posters from you? I wanted to credit the person who created them online. I'm thinking it might be you. I have a series of four others posted on one of my walls there too, but this was gettin too long.

It's possible? I do the motivationals for the SH Advent Calendar every year.

Hey, I have a cup like that! ;-) And your cabinet looks like the front of my fridge, all covered in magnets.

Love seeing your place, babe. And the giant zebra in Stonehenge! AGH.

Don't know if you can make out your the little AS&J magnet you gave me, but it's on the front of that cabinet too ;-)

Glad you enjoyed. My collection is a great conversation starter when folks stop in my office. I love talking about my boys.

Nice shots (especially that more recent one of Paul). And yay for another Gumby Pokey fan (I have them at my computer at work, along with Crow Robot and Tom Servo).

Heh. I think Gumby and Pokey were my first testing the waters of how indulgent my boss would be of me personalizing my office. Obviously she is very indulgent.

I'm quite chuffed about my PMG photo. He even personalized it with my name. I was pretty speechless when my co-worker presented it to me. It meant alot to me that she would go to the trouble of having her folks ask for it.

Yay! Motivation posters!

I never thought to print them out like that. All my stuff is in my closet, because I'm a dork. But check out my new con t-shirt:

Ummmm. Teh sexy Paul shirt. That is something that is lacking in my collection is good fangirl t-shirts. I only have one good one.

And YES I have a series of four of your posters that I printed (I love using the laminating machine at work) and mounted in an existing frame in my office. I took a pic of it, but felt like this post was getting too long to include it. I have Perseverance, Excel,...and two others...

Thank you for making them available. Successories has got nothing on you.

Thankee! It's nice to take a little vacation in my mind with my boys when I get frustrated or bored at work.

I *am* jealous—lookit you, awesome fangirl that you are! :)Oh, and I covet your Keurig, yes I do. *makes grabby hands*

Yes, I never knew how great the Keurig would be, never would have thought to get it for myself, but it's soooo much handier than having to wait for a full pot of coffee to brew and then to have to clean. And I love to be able to offer anybody that comes to my office fresh cup of coffee.

It probably sounds like I don't do much work, but I swear I do. I just reward myself by oggling the boys when I feel like I've been particulary productive.

it's neat and tidy.....I wouldn't dare show the mess my desk is (organized chaos like my brain!)

you have an autographed copy of my favorite photo of PMG (mine is of a sexy younger- older version before he let the curls grow back!) the faded photos and the creases prove...I sleep with Starsky!

Actually, you may have noticed that I strategically did not actually show my actual desk. Even though I try to clean it, it is a mess. But, I can always find everything I need

{{very big happy hugs}} oh, wow. these are super awesome photos, and thank you for sharing! i can just feel all the fandom and family love and positive energy, and whoa, it's just an incredibly uplifting workspace. :) :) your commentary rocked, and holy hannah, that dean and cas wallpaper makes me want to read some dean/cas. seriously. s-s-s-smokin' hot! oh, and can you just imagine how cool it is that you posted a pic of that PMG photo? i'm just about to start working on your gift snippet (actually, it's um, gonna be a *story* :)) in which the guys are older (late 50s, early 60s) and adopt a pet -- and it's set in the Affirmation universe-- and that pic gives me a terrific mental image of an older starsky. yum!!

I'm glad you like the peek into the super-exciting life of the Office Admin. I also keep a few printed zines in the bottom of my desk drawer. You know. For emergencies ;-)

I love your idea for the story, and have always loved the Affirmation verse.

The gal that gave me the photo got promoted to the Home Office which took her away from me here down to TX. It was a bittersweet day when she left a few months ago. Happy for her new opportunities, but I knew I'd miss her.

She's still with our company though, so we email and talk on the phone frequently.

Have a wonderful weekend {{hug hug hug}}

You collect monkeys...not Monkees???????
