  1. Your cube looks nice & homey.

    Mine has a banana that has only about 30 more minutes of life left, a “millions more movement 10th anniversary commemoration of the million man march” bumper sticker hanging, and two phone books proping up my monitor.

  2. The Joy

    Is that some kind of scented candle in front of your Nalgene and next to the coffee mug? It looks like a cup covered in slime.

    I think I’m a little more excited by the Bill Simmons book in the back there. That had better be serving its correct purpose.
