  • Mood:

a little peek into my world

This just goes to show, given the chance between writing something substantive and crap, I'll pick the crap every time.

I've been on the job almost a year, and here are the decorations I've accumulated in my cube:

** Magnets. I have a row of magnets hanging from the shelf above my computer. From left to right, they are:
-- a 2002-03 Vanderbilt basketball schedule
-- a magnet of the Golden Gate Bridge
-- a Powerpuff Girls magnet
-- a reproduction of my family's (supposed) coat of arms in an ornate faux-gold frame
-- a magnet of the Casablanca movie poster
-- a magnet of an ornate fan
-- a magnet from Fido, my favorite coffeehouse in Nashville
-- a "Save the Rock" magnet from Alcatraz
-- a magnet of gamgee and me boarding the boat to Alcatraz
-- an Emerson quotation
-- a Monet painting, Japanese Footbridge
-- a magnet from the most recent Harry Potter movie
-- a polka-dotted seahorse
-- a Phoenix and Dragon magnet (local bookstore)

** Little stone animals from Crystal Blue (where I used to work, in Little Five Points, still friends with the staff) on my computer:
-- an aventurine coyote
-- a green goldstone sleeping cat
-- a rhodonite sea turtle
-- a lapis squirrel
-- a tigerseye sitting cat
-- an onyx panda
-- a jasper whale
-- a hematite penguin
-- a rose quartz dolphin
-- an aventurine sleeping cat
-- a rose quartz duck (larger than the rest)

** Stuffed animals perched on my monitor:
-- a "bluebird of happiness"
-- a Rubber Duckie mini-beanie (thanks, 10dimensions!)

** More animals:
-- a miniature piggy bank (enough room for one coin)
-- an Egyptian cat my boss brought me from the British Museum
-- a stretching cat that is actually a chopstick rest

** Paperweights:
-- a glass paperweight with a lobster in it that I got in Nashville for a dollar
-- a Powerpuff Girls glitter globe
-- a collection of stones with inspirational sayings on them (I need all the help I can get)

** On the walls:
-- a large calendar of "Romantic Europe" (this month is Florence)
-- a smaller calendar of castles, which I think I mainly got because it was dirt cheap
-- a picture of the firefighters raising the flag on September 11
-- a postcard with pictures of Vanderbilt
-- a greeting card of Midsummer's Eve
-- a birthday card from my boss: "If a tree falls in the forest and then springs back upright as a joke, do the squirrels freak out?"
-- a greeting card which lists numerous bad qualities of the average Taurus, then follows up with "and extremely good looking!"

** Miscellaneous:
-- a miniature water garden, filled with various stones. This thing amuses the fuck out of me. You squeeze the little attachment and it spits water and makes a farting noise. It's a riot.
-- a framed photo of my mom and me my freshman year at Vanderbilt
-- a globe-shaped stress ball
-- a Get Fuzzy desk calendar

** And the Crowning Glory:
-- Devil Duckies!! Six little miniature Devil Duckies in a variety of colors swimming across my monitor.

This entry turned out awfully long. I have a lot of crap, don't I?
