Downsizing

My now neater and more compact work space




P.S. -- I forgot to mention that what you can't see are the sconces on either side of the mirror from which my feathered Voodoo dolls hang. LOL.

Looovely.

And phooey on Michael Garret!

Mighty Dyckerson said...

Not gonna work. Too hard to have cybersex with that configuration. Consider putting the laptop in your bed. I did this, and it changed my life.

Serena Joy said...

Thanks, December. And I did put a Voodoo Pox on Garrett.:)

Au contraire, MD -- I take the backup to bed with me. It's lighter and doesn't cramp my style. Alas, I'm still waiting for my life to change.:)

tfg said...

The laptop is looking pleasantly functional. BTW, it was the laptop and the inflatable Oprah doll that really changed Dyck's life.

Little Lamb said...

That's neat! You have a lap top.

Serena Joy said...

Functioning right along, T. So, if inflatable Oprah changed Dyck's life, inflatable Dr. Phil might do the trick for me?

New toy, Lamby. Definitely pretty neat -- until it does something evil.:)

How nice...I love a new computer...not sure about that vista dealio though...I'd still be using win 95 if I could..I'm sure it will work out though for you. You can be my tester.

I like your desktop picture :-)

Serena Joy said...

Sure, I'll be your tester, Leelee. I'm getting more used to it, but I still like XP much better. At least the stupid thing recognizes that I'm the boss of it now and lets me have my way with it.

tfg said...

I missed the prior post, now the laptop makes perfect sense.

Serena Joy said...

Ahhhh. You must have thought I'd lost my mind. Again.:)

Corn Dog said...

I'm glad the machine knows you are alpha now. It's a pretty little thing. Don't let Vista do anything snarky like use your credit cards illegally. I hear Vista is a naughty thing. I'm on a MAC.

Serena Joy said...

Dumb Vista wouldn't dare run off with my credit cards. I think it knows by now I'd hunt it down like a rabid weasel. I seriously thought about getting a MAC, but then I decided no, I'd have to learn something totally new. It just seemed easier to stick with something I knew.

Is anybody else having a new Blogger problem? It's stopped disabling comments unless you manually enable them with each post, but now it's refusing to "remember" me and I'm having to log in every time I want to comment.

SJ---

How can you tell when you've known each other a long time? We've known each other so long, I remember when you LAST bought a computer. I had one in the budget this year, but as soon as I found out I couldn't buy one with XP, only with Vista, I said..."I'll wait this one out a year. Perhaps Bill Gates and the boys will get 1/2 of the 50,000 flaws in Vista worked out by this time, next year.

I'm sure you didn't buy Dell. quid

Hale McKay said...

Your workspace makes mine look like the set of "Sanford & Son!"

littlebirdblue said...

If you've got a printer, it's still more 'n I've got.

Serena Joy said...

Hey, Quid. I know, we go waaaaay back and you've heard me bitch about more than one new OS. LOL.

Mike, my space will look like Sanford & Son again soon enough. I had to clean it up so I could, you know, take a picture. That doesn't happen often.:)

I haven't even tried the printer yet, LB. I think I'm afraid to find out whether its drivers refuse to work with Vista.

All Blog Spots said...

Great blog, keep the good work going :)

Scary Monster said...

Great blog, keep the good work going :) STOMP!

And you said Me place were clean?!? Yours be pristine. Me shouldn't be surprised though, it be as elegant as you be.

Oh, yeah。Forget about the blow up Opra doll. The got brad Pitt models for 30% off.

puerileuwaite said...

All Blog Spots - Great comment. Keep 'em coming :)

So is that the "old" laptop (even though it has stickers, sometimes people do leave them on)?

If so, I need to see a pic of the new one (I'm an afficianado!).

Your work space looks like the model of efficiency. You probably even have a designated area for the death threats that you send out!

:-)

Scary Monster said...

Me be looking at the pics again and wondering hoe such a beautifull setting can produce such twisted posts.

Ya cain't judge a blogger by their posts. or sumpin like that.
STOMP.

Laurie said...

Oh, so pretty!

Serena Joy said...

Friggin' Blogger won't let me delete the duplicate comments right now.

Trust me, Scary, it won't be pristine for long. I know, I am twisted. I revel in it. The day I straighten up, I might as well be dead. Please! Get me something other than Brad Pitt. He doesn't do a thing for me.

No, Puggy, that's the new one. The stickers stay on 'til I'm ready to lose the training wheels. Damn, you know all my secrets, don't you? Yes, it's true that I send out my death threats from a secret room with tinfoil reinforced walls.

Thanks, Laurie. I haven't seen you in ages. I've got to run over and pay you a visit.

Sherry,

Found your blog via g-man's.

Lovely blog, I like it!

Will drop by more often.

:)

MXI said...

It's too neat, where is the whiskey bottles, the overflowing ashtrays, and you need at least 6 coffee cups with hard crusted coffee on the bottom. That's what I see when I look at my desk.

Serena Joy said...

MXI, I did the same thing for the picture as I do when company's coming -- dumped the ashtray, shoved the bottles in the closet, and stowed all the cups and dishes under the sink and jammed the door shut.

Hello, Pinkhippo, and welcome. I'm so glad you dropped by when my house was clean.
