Computer excitement

Feeling all the more love for my department today: my new office computer is on the way!

OK, it’s not new exactly. But only One Careful Owner and it’s been lovingly reconditioned specially for me.

I might even go and spend more time in my office if I have a usable computer. And put up some posters and use the shelves and install some drinkable coffee and make it sort of cosy, like normal people do.

I could work towards building those architectural piles of stuff (technical term, I believe) that people hide behind when they want to be left alone.

    You don’t use your office shelves for the overspill of books that you can’t fit in at home? Wow – are you sure you’ve got enough books?

    I was the same when I used to “work from home” in my last job. This time round I’ve taken over a “workspace” (Jesus) from a lady, so it’s goodbye to the ferbies and aromatic gizmos and hello to ‘trailer trash’ mug mats and “decorative” minutures of Irish whiskey.

    BTW – Where is your PM link on here? I want to forward you the e-mail I’ve just found waiting for me when I got in. I’m only 35 but what does this all mean, Sharon? Is it all downhill from here?

    It’s in “About me” in the sidebar somewhere. I should put a mailto in there shouldn’t I? Anyway it’s sharon@earlymodernweb.org.uk (update: added it to the sidebar too. It should work)

    And yes: it is all downhill from here. Sorry.

    Chris, no, I don’t have enough books. (I blame NLW.) I’ve been working on it, ask my credit card. Mind you, I do have some expanding piles waiting expectantly for a new home; I’ve just been reluctant to use the office for overspill because I so rarely go there.

    To clarify: that’s expanding piles OF BOOKS. Just in case anyone should get the wrong idea.

    Tis done. Please regard the first product at the top of the page.

    Sorry to hear about the Rockfords.

    Don’t you like ’em? Me, I’ve got my eye on the faux fur.

    (Not in a good way, for those who know about my penchant for things furry.)

    Just Say No. I might as well start my own mail-order clothing company making comfortable, durable-but-stylish leisurewear based on One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest.

    “…luxurious cotton blouson in off-white, seasoned-ivory, or natural pale buff, featuring destinctive extra-long sleeves. Wipes clean …”
