I would never harpoon Gumby
March 5, 2009
After describing where I work to a blogger friend the other day, she mentioned that she had trouble picturing it. So, with the help of my lovely iphone, here are some snap shots of my office and some of the things in it.
My* Gumby mug. This was taken in between my first and second cup of coffee.
On of my book cases. I have not read all the books in this case but I have read enough of them to answer questions, make suggestions and carry on a general conversation about them. We call this ‘skimming’. It is not smart.
Two of my harpoons. Ok, they are not actually my harpoons but they belong to my teaching collection. I have never once used them to impale anyone…although I may have thought about it. Actually, death by harpoon would make a great episode of Law & Order.
My magazine cut out of all the presidents being held up my one of the worst magnets I have ever laid eyes on. I have no idea how it showed up on my file cabinet but I did not purchase it on my trip to Alaska. Honest.
The morning sun coming up over the harbor as viewed from my office. It could be way worse than this.
* technically, the Gumby mug belongs to D. But, D does not drink coffee and leaving a mug like that in our cabinets is just a waste.
