Meme: Objects Around Us, workplace edition 
16th-Jul-2007 10:46 am
RTFM
As I said in my last post, I wanted to do the same meme, but looking at my desk at work. Sitting in my cube now, here are some of the more interesting things I can see:

  • 1 large coffee mug with VMware logo, currently holding French roast coffee with a splash of soy milk

  • 1 coffee mug with Thermo Finnigan logo, currently holding a collection of pens and pencils

  • 1 black coffee mug emblazoned with the acronym "RTFM" (as pictured in my user icon), currently empty

  • Postcards of Caravaggio's Head of Medusa, Artemisia Gentileschi's Beheading of Holofernes, Chagall's I and the Village, and Rousseau's Sleeping Gypsy, tacked to the cube wall

  • 2 foam stress balls, 1 hot pink, 1 neon orange, with smiley faces printed on them

  • A rotring Core fountain pen, fine nib, filled with black ink, and a Lamy Al-Star green anodized aluminum fountain pen, fine nib, filled with purple ink

  • 2 foam gliders, decorated to look like the space shuttle, that were given away as swag at a conference I attended

  • A poster depicting Daleks against the Manhattan skyline

  • A tiny toy black Dalek. Its head was glued on backwards, so the poor thing can't see where it is shooting (which is at the foam spaceshuttles)

  • A small notebook with a blue leather cover, purchased in the San Lorenzo street market in Florence. It serves as emergency backup memory.

  • A junior-size Circa notebook, which holds my calendar and work notes

  • half a dozen blank pads of paper, ranging in size from 3" x 5" to 11" x 17"

  • a terra cotta pot with 5 tiny succulents, 3 of which are looking ill and 2 of which are flourishing


In short: caffeine-addicted Doctor Who fan with foutain pen fetish and pronounced anti green-thumb.

The Gentileschi thing reminded me: I was trying to describe why I had liked a couple I met, and finally I said, "I had the strong sense that when they named their daughter Judy, they were well aware of the beheading thing, and did it on purpose."

That is incredibly awesome.
