Behind the Curtain

Welcome to the Rude Cactus Command Center (RC3)!

No, my office isn't that nice...I'm working from the solitude of home today. Surprisingly, I'm actually working as there is no one around to slack off with except the cats. And they're asleep. Shock. This also means I got to ditch that pesky suit in favor of jeans. That? Is a good thing. But on the downside, I'm apparently missing the conversation Loud Guy is having in the office across from mine. I just received an IM from my office mate informing me that "he is talking about carrying whoever he is talking to over the threshold with toilet paper stuffed in their armpit." Call me crazy but I'd like to hear more.

Note, if you will, the lack of a television, any personal reading material, music (you'll just have to trust me on that one), strippers, circus freaks or any other types of distractions. This means I'm Serious and going to Get Something Done. Or, well, surf my blogroll and see what's up with you all. Because I'm Serious...kinda.

hooray for working from home! what a very nice set up you have there. Maybe you'll just have to poke the cats to get a little drama going 'at the office'.

Spiffy office!!...I came to work today and one of my piles of files had "avalanched" over the rest of my desk. Nice way to start the morning!!

You poor man! I know how much you must feel so out of the loop at work! LOL

If only national security didn't proclude me from working at home. Really, I think I'd be just as productive at home sitting on my couch as I have been here today. Glad someone gets to work from home though!

Your office is spiffy-nice. I like that we can see your vanity, in that your site is the one pulled up on the right monitor. ;-)

you have a very good looking office... more suited to writing a great novel than doing boring work.

I fear that would be ALL I would get done if I worked at home. If an income could be gotten through blog-surfing, I'd be one happy, gainfully employed woman.

Did I mention that I'm reading your blog right now as part of the previously mentioned work-avoidance blog-surf?

Posted by: Kim at August 24, 2004 3:17 PM

Nice work space ya got there! Of course, now I'm making up a backstory for the threshold-carrying toilet paper conversation.

Beautiful office you have there! Mind redecorating mine sometime with your mad skills?

Posted by: alektra at August 24, 2004 3:34 PM

Posted by: Mike at August 24, 2004 3:38 PM

I am working from home too! Hurrah! Hey, wait...where is the four year old that is supposed to be driving you insane? You are alone? Really? What is that like?

Posted by: jujubee at August 24, 2004 4:22 PM

Wait, you're working from home and you changed out of the pjs? Dude, that's definitely serious. Kudos to you on the great work ethic. :D

Posted by: patricia at August 24, 2004 5:32 PM

so THATS how come you popped round to mine ;)

A man who is NOT afraid of colors I gotta like that! And I am so disappointed there were NO circus freaks! See what happens when you don't invite me?! I like the set up...the dual computers! Looks like my home! Greedy pigs over here!

I love the colors on the wall...
Wish mine was that cute.
Ours is just plain white and my pc is on a small table... cause I haven't purchased a desk or a chair yet... LOL *kitchen table chair* will have to do! lol
Your cat is beautiful...
