Where Mike Nichols Blogs Blog Name: Anxiety, Panic & Health Location: Columbus, Georgia ← Where Elders Blog Main List Posted by Ronni Bennett on Monday, 07 July 2008 | Permalink | Comments (11) Comments I'd have a lot of anxiety and would panic working in a space like that. My health would suffer too!! You are a better man then I am. ;-) Posted by: mildred garfield | Tuesday, 08 July 2008 at 09:11 AM Two monitors and three lamps!? Why three? Posted by: kenju | Tuesday, 08 July 2008 at 10:05 AM Mildred: Yes, anxiety and panic are what my wife feels every time she walks into my office! She's a neatnik and would be mortified if I ever told her a photo of my office is on the internet! Kenju: The third lamp on the left is also used at a reading desk that's not seen in the photo. Of course, it's piled so high I can't use it! I'd like to keep a cleaner work area, but if I straightened up I couldn't find anything. I have to admit that I've never kept a neat desk, but it's a bit more chaotic than normal due to the concentrated work I've been doing lately. Fortunately, I have the room to myself and we can just close the door. Posted by: Mike Nichols | Tuesday, 08 July 2008 at 03:15 PM Ooh, two monitors. I'd love to have two monitors! Your space looks like my husband's half of the office. Posted by: ell | Tuesday, 08 July 2008 at 06:36 PM Ooh, two monitors. I'd love to have two monitors! Your space looks like my husband's half of the office. Posted by: ell | Tuesday, 08 July 2008 at 06:37 PM Yes, mine grows to look like this, then every two weeks I have a fit and shovel the surfaces clean. This lasts five minutes, but I feel heroic. :) Glad to meetcha. Posted by: Mage Bailey | Tuesday, 08 July 2008 at 07:31 PM Aw, you just look like a busy guy! But I'd want to clean up that reading desk so I could use it. I don't like to have potentially usable space stacked with obstacles. There was just a discussion going on over at Unclutterer about messy vs. clean workspaces. You might want to take a look.

The one on the right to write, the one on the left for reference material. Mage: Glad to meetcha, too! A shovel to clean mine is too small. I need a backhoe! Cynthia: Thanks for the tip. I've read about half, going back to read the rest. Posted by: Mike Nichols | Tuesday, 08 July 2008 at 09:44 PM My kind of space - everything at your fingertips. Someplace :) Posted by: mary jamison | Wednesday, 09 July 2008 at 08:12 AM Finally! A blogging space I would feel right at home in!! Posted by: Bev | Sunday, 18 October 2009 at 12:50 PM My wife complains about my 'clutter.' However, when ahe asks for a paper, I know exactly where in the stack(s) it's located, and that always amazes her. Putting it back is another challenge, however. I need a secretary....!!
