As part of a regular blogging promotion in which our Ukie-blogging friends Enid and Little Miss Moi participate (via Aussie A Dingo's Got My Barbie), here's Carpetblog's contribution to "Fun Monday: the blogging environment."
This is where all the Carpetblog magic happens!
First, credit where it's due: nothing would get done around here if it weren't for my committed support staff. They make sure that if I want to nap at 3 pm, I don't have to nap alone. They have taught me that there's no shame in a mid-day nap. Or, an all-day nap.
The neighbors think someone else lives here since there are so many conversations going on. They've also taught me there's no shame in talking to myself. A lot.
This is "as is." No concessions were made to "cleanliness" or "organization." Those are the same 5000 pages of crosstabs that are sitting right beside me now, not getting analyzed. See that cup of coffee? In the course of this project, its contents were spilled all over the stacks of crosstabs, contributing to the overall sense of indolence. How very meta.
For those who are interested, I have the 1957 karabagh down under the coffee table and the footstool is a Kyrgyz shrydak.
And the view from the window is a little 1970's slum, don't you think?
