@agingdragqueen: Do you even have room for postcards?

Shoot, I spent 2 hours cleaning up on Tuesday. I would have had all you guys beat.

Edit: looks around Actually I've managed to make it messy again, If I go home for lunch ill pick up my cell phone charger and take a picture. It's nowhere near as bad as it was but it's still not pretty.

@lichme: That back wall is empty. Start sending.

@cowboydann: I was lamenting over the same thing CBD! Just picked it up a little last week.

vote-for6vote-against

@lichme: no, but there are so many other walls! The Wall of Woot will be more publicly accessible than being just in my cube.

@agingdragqueen: That's your secret way of saying you don't want anyone to come visit, isn't it.

@inkycatz: the candy jar above the scale I'm about to put there is the real way I hope to drive people away.

@agingdragqueen: "If you stop for more than a minute you have to get on the scale. Yes, even you."

I had some time today so I cleaned up my desk....

vote-for4vote-against

I just cleaned and am technically in between two offices right now or I would totally win. If I had to be confined to a cube there would be no hope.

When I retired last month I hauled home over thirty TUBS of carp which is now stacked all over my house. "Ah, I coulda been a contender!"

vote-for5vote-against

Sorry, I couldn't play until the boss left for the day.
I had to back up very far to fit it all in. We don't have cubes as we have a "collaborative workforce" in out department.

@lumpthar: It looks cubelike enough to me to qualify.

@inkycatz: {scnv} The "U" shape is more reminicent of a Stall or a Pen. If you could see the engineers in this grainy surveillance photo, you would see that they are all well-fed, suggesting that they are happy and well treated by their masters. {/science-channel narrator voice}

@lumpthar: no stuff piled in the floor? you are automatically disqualified

vote-for2vote-against

@moosezilla: You can't see around the corner. I have boxes of parts, a pair of shoes, a mouse trap, a UPS and 2 power strips all behind the leg/panel of the desk.
Inside the hutch lives changes of clothes, tea, a pair of tomahawks, an old Polaroid 600 camera, various artifacts, and many books.

I would lose, my desk is clean :)

vote-for9vote-against

Nothing on the floor but I usually have things growing on my cups.

vote-for4vote-against

@prettywootprincess: is that cup in the middle a big yellow cup from Dickey's BBQ?

vote-for5vote-against

@carl669: No WhichWich, but there are a ton of Dickey's cups here at woot.

vote-for1vote-against

@agingdragqueen: You win. I hope you're not claustrophobic. :)

vote-for1vote-against

So how do we decide who wins? I think I shall go ahead and claim victory since no one else has. Staking a claim FTW.

Before I retired last month, I had a real office with a door and everything. (sigh) Now I seem to have no place to be alone. I do have a home office, but it has turned into everyone else's overflow room. One of my many projects is to clean it out and make it usable again.

[IMG][/IMG]

As you can see, I have a tough time getting rid of old computers... and printers.... and office supplies........

vote-for3vote-against

@belyndag: I really like how the monitor is hiding behind the hutch just a bit. It makes the computer just that much more useless.

vote-for2vote-against

@lumpthar: LOL! If the lighting were better you could see that there are two more monitors on the left. They are both hooked up. The big old monitor hiding behind the hutch is an old one I need to get rid of. There are two perfectly good printers and two old CPUs on the floor to the right.

Cleaning my desk is on the schedule for the weekend so I was planning to take a before picture anyway.

vote-for3vote-against

well folks, i think i'm going to have to declare myself the winner, followed by @prettywootprincess and then @agingdragqueen.

thanks for playing. and, just to be fair, everyone that entered gets to have bragging rights.

vote-for2vote-against

@agingdragqueen: never! where do you think this is? Florida?

vote-for2vote-against

@agingdragqueen: I'm in Florida, I'd be delighted to do a recount. :-/ After searching my house & yard, I found 35 chads that had dangled, then fallen. They are clearly marked @agingdragqueen.

Does that help? If not, I can search deep in closets and under shrubs, etc. Let me know (...how many more you need).

Edit to add: Cheesecake, btw. ;-)

vote-for2vote-against

I'm only a little tempted to skip the weekend cleaning project so I can have a head start the next time this comes up ; )

vote-for2vote-against

@carl669: I have to ask: pictures of Nancy Kerrigan? Are you a big figure skating fan, a relative, or just work at Nashoba Valley Olympia?

vote-for2vote-against

@neuropsychosocial: i actually got these in a boc a long while back. for some reason, i didn't want to throw them away. so, i put them up outside my cube to confuse people. it's worked quite well. every new person that starts at the company asks me the same question, "so, you're a big nancy kerrigan fan?". every once in a while, i'll even say, "yeah, she's my cousin", just to add to the confusion.
