Tag! You're it...

I've been tagged by JuliaM in old school meme fashion (for more recent meme-age see here) to give an insight into where I do my blogging from.

Unlike the other bloggers revealing themselves so far, I actually do the majority of my blogging at work. There are two main reasons for this:
1. I have two small children, and when they are awake there is no time, and when they are asleep I have neither the will nor the energy.
2. My job provides periods of insane busyness followed by quieter times. Often I formulate a post in my head, and the actual posting bit is done at work. I may also experiment with my new iPhone, but typing a whole post on a touchscreen is I suspect a little tedious.

So, for obvious reasons no picture will be forthcoming.

I have four computer screens, and I use the right-hand one when I blog as my boss sits to my right and he cannot see this one! My desk is relatively tidy, with various work-related papers lying around. Invariably there is an empty coffee cup and a large quantity of empty water bottles. In the recent Xmas season there have been boxes of chocolates all over the shop, helping to maintain a constant feeling of mild nausea, as I have no self-control.

So there you have it!

I tag Anna Raccoon, Leg-Iron and, to go a little further afield, Hyperbole and a Half to show their blogging world to us.


  1. It was bound to happen sooner or later.

    I'll describe the shambles surrounding me but no photo. This place could make a camera scream.

  2. Ah well, ta for link and Happy new year.

  3. The title of your blog is one of the most amusing things I've seen this year in the blogosphere - I know it's only one day into the year, but still (I had to use that joke at least once). Dear God Make It Stop - that's how I feel every time I turn on the mainstream news - bad news just seems to be on this perpetual, surreal loop. Hopefully 2011 will be slightly more sane, but I'm not holding my breath.

  4. Sorry Leg-Iron, had to be done. Was going to suggest OH as well but I chickened out!

    Thanks Mark & JuliaM, happy new year to you too!

    Rate of Dissent, cheers for the comment, that was the sense of my blog title originally so I'm glad it made sense. I read your blog with interest, and the post on Civil Disobedience made me think you should check out Captain Ranty (see my blogroll). All the best for 2011.
