    Here's my office, the important stuff anyway. There's a corner with just a bunch of junk stacked up in it and not much else to see. It's about 10x10 and the walls don't go all the way to the ceiling, but it's my little slice of heaven.

    The two magnets on the drawers say, "Fins Up!" (Jimmy Buffett fans will know) and "Stop me before I volunteer again."

    Yes, a blood pressure cuff. The whole office has gotten obsessed.

    I've had this hanging in every place I've worked since the mid-1980s. Sometimes it's for the people who come in to see me and sometimes it's for me.

    Alice has been my alter-ego for the past 15 years or so. On top of the CPU is my back-up brain (a hand-squeezy thing I got at a trade show).

    thats a pretty good sized office too.
    my coworker and i share a converted exam room. lol yes its true...our old office space was much bigger. now we call it the cave....which is being nice. we moved a whole wopping 10ft if that.

    I like ur back up brain. I have a coffee mug that turns into mri picture when filled with hot stuff...and a pound of fake fat from a drug rep. i think i really like the back up brain better lol

    I feel your pain. This is the first time I've had an actual office, to myself, since [counting on fingers] 2003.

    LOL at calling your space "the cave". Ours is "the catacombs". It's an area of a warehouse that was converted/built out into offices. Nothing penetrates, not TV signals (see my comments elsewhere about getting Sling), not radio signals, not most cell providers' signals, and definitely not sunshine.

    What does get through is the constant sound of construction in the large bay right outside our offices, which includes a nice ringing and echoing effect when they're building stuff. If I weren't pretty sure of losing my office, I'd campaign for telecommuting since 90% of my work can be done from anywhere I can get broadband and VPN.

    The big boss here likes to move people around, though, so I'm sure I won't be in this office for more than a year if that. At that point, depending on what's next, my next "show us your desk" photos could look suspiciously like the office in the back bedroom of my house!

    Not sure about the sign, but Ben & Jerry made you a new flavor, albeit NSFW.

    Ill see if the HIM is in the office (him has a thing about pronouns tee hee) Ill get some pics of our cave...not big enough to be catacombs. LOL...my job could be done telecommuting but for some reason that doesnt fly with HIM.
    Hope you get to telecommute that would be great with the price of gas!

    It's odd, but considering that people today might not be able to read it...
