Not all workspaces can be perfect
But also, I really like the wide view – it's a cozy, homey, fun space that echos through in your writing :)
I too still own a checkbook.
I'm a footnotes truther
tongue cleaners are the shit
this is beautiful!
some favorite moments of this post:
the word "2wice" which i never noticed til now, great work!
"Sometimes god forbid..." (i love your attitude!)
"coffee cups akimbo"!!! (<-- regarding this, i have a question: can you show me a photo or drawing of some akimbo coffee cups? i love the phrase and would love to know what you're picturing!)
"even the title is messy!" (i love your self-awareness... or your self-awareMESS?!?)
"without further adele" (delightful! PS do you know this ryan o'flanagan wonderful video? it's less than two minutes long! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZJyayrrYrww)
your page of doodles
“a greeting card guy” (may i recommend my friend shelley's greeting card company, Albertine Press who i use for nearly all of my birthday and otherwise card needs? i think and hope i may: https://albertinepress.com/)
"incense (not pictured)"
"for some reason"
"bought on amazon once"
"notebook full of blah blah blah"
"Is that bread?"
"It’s a classic Jim and Dwight sort of relationship." (which one of you is which?)
"basically every floor + wall can do the same thing." (can't believe a business is taking on Big Wall + Floor!)
"box of ink cartridges for a printer we don’t have anymore"
"her foot is bigger but delete this part" (classic, in the spirit of the elton john lyric in "your song" that goes "if i was a sculptor, but then again, no," which the comedian craig baldo has a wonderful joke about where he's like "maybe finish writing the song before releasing it; like, don't put out your rough draft" which is a funny point AND ALSO love the rough drafts; you are comedy's elton john! if you want!)
"A letter Wilder wrote to me. Given that he’s 1 year old, this is incredible." (truly!)
"babushka and dedushka." (UP UNTIL NOW I HAD ONLY HEARD OF ONE OF THESE! THIS IS INCREDIBLE! WHY IS NO ONE ELSE TALKING ABOUT DEDUSHKA ERASURE!)
thank you for all of this, as always my friend! your creativity is enjoyable to experience!
I'm totally sending you my Messy Ass Space
i loved this :) i think desks, like bags, are such delightful things to be guided through by other people. like you i also have put up so many drawings from kids (i used to teach sports)!!
A blog w just posts of truly messy ass desks would be so fun! Yours is really not so bad. I’ve seen some doozies.
I’m certain that a persons desk is absolutely a reflection of their mind, which is what makes them so fun to look at. It’s a peak inside a persons head.
You have captured my entire aesthetic here. 😂
