Picture day

A while back, Monkey demanded that we put more pictures on the blog. Well, I bought my girlfriend a digital SLR camera for Xmas, and then promptly stole it to take pictures for all y'all. These are all from December (which will be quite obvious once we start the tour).

This is my hexacle:



It's not really a cubicle, because it isn't in the shape of a cube -- it's half of a hexagon. If you look at the cube plans from above, it looks like a bunch of honeycombs, which we assume is to make us think with a hive mentality. A quick tour of the hex. On the left is the holiday bush (I'm a Jew, remember?). Next are my Bose Noise canceling headphones (essential for the modern hex dweller). Then you have my dual screens, which have the following underneath from left to right: My iPod (which has since been replaced by a new video iPod), my hula girl, stuffed beaver and a Linux penguin wizard from a company that went out of business in 2000, my Fiji pen holder with favorite red pen, my Y2K bug (he makes a "breaking" noise when you drop him), my clock/book light from IBM and lastly my blue and gold Cal bears. Above is the periodic table of money, a poster about Identity Theft from the Postal Inspectors and on the right are some hand drawn Nemo sketches my girlfriend made. On the far right, "The Guide to Beer", which was my holiday gift from my boss my first year, because he said I did not appreciate beer properly.

Here is another view of my hexacle from the outside:



From this view you can see the advantage of having been around awhile. Since I sit on the end of the row next to the windows, I get to take advantage of the window ledge on the other side of the aisle. That is where I choose to put the only signs of life near me -- my plant and fish tank. Ironically, the fish died two years ago. You can also see the origami hanging above my hex, again an art project by my girlfriend (the advantage of her being a 4th grade teacher is that she gets to do art with the kids).

Because I have a window cube, I get to look outside. When I look outside, this is what I see:


  


As you can see, I've got a pretty nice view. Remember, those pics were taken in December. Sunny, warm, California December...

So there you go Monkey, enjoy the pictures!

I used to have a collection of slinkys too, but they were too noisy. I like to keep my hands busy while I'm thinkging, so I need the toys to keep me from doing inappropriate things. :)

I like your bush too.

Booty, nice setup, love the dual monitors and nice view!

Booty J Patrol said...

Thanks Lee Ann! One of the advantages of working at a tech company is that I get to play with some cool computers.

Although, one guy has an even sweeter setup -- he's got 4 21" flat screens with a custom mount that has 3 across and then one above in the middle. Sadly, the guy is kind of a tool...

Tumbleweed said...

All this girlfriend talk is making me sick! I thought you were available. Oh, nice working environment by the way.

Booty J Patrol said...

I am sorry to dissapoint all the ladies, but yes, it is true that I am not available. However, I have no objection to receiving dirty pictures. :)

The Husband said...

Purple said...

Booty!

Monkey will be so impressed when he returns. I'll email him about this.

I like the variety of wildlife around your desk. Isn't it rather loud?

Booty J Patrol said...

They're all pretty good about talking quietly amongst themselves and not bothering me when I want to concentrate -- except for the hula girl. She's kind of a flirt.

Hello ##NAME##, I was glad to see your blog although I was really searching for kodak digital cameras information. But your blog caught me eye, and is one of the better ones out there. Good blog. I like to know what's going on! Cheers! ##LINK##
