So today is my day off, but I’m going to spend most of it cleaning my office. Things have been so busy over the last few months that shit just keeps piling up and piling up, and it’s driving me nuts. I can barely move around in here. I was going to just take some before and after pictures for myself, but I decided to take it one step further. I haven’t been posting much, so I decided to give a little tour of the CAD office here. Then after I clean I’ll post some pictures.
Here’s the office. It’s currently a mess.
01- A KL-ZE V6 Intake Manifold. I need to get it bead-blasted and powder-coated this spring. It’s very heavy. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve tripped over this fucking thing.
02- A 19″ CRT Monitor taking up space.
03- Junk. Boxes, notebooks, bills and tax stuff. There also appears to be some CD’s in here.
04- More junk taking up space. Some prototype shirts and other CAD Merchandise, as well as shirts I’ve ordered from Threadless and haven’t worn yet.
05- A closet. Mostly books and stuff in there that I don’t have room for. Been in there since the move in 2004.
06- Old shipping supplies and envelopes, from when I used to handle my own shipping.
07- A box of some of the stuff I get from fans at conventions. Fan art, free games, cards, etc etc. Some networking gear on top there. Underneath the box there is a big stack of white Bristol Board. It’s raw artwork from CAD from the last three years.
08- Everquest 2 box. Underneath, some black CDs or DVDs.
09- Some paper and crap, and also one of my old inventory logs from when I used to ship my own merchandise.
10- What’s left of a spool of CAT5 cable.
11- Some “returned to sender” packages. I imagine they’re Volume One from the very first printing. People who gave a wrong address and never responded to emails about it.
12- Guild Wars Collector’s Edition
13- My Postage Meter. I’ve finally decided I no longer need this, and am sending it back to the company.
14- Some first print copies of Volume One.
15- Some Star Wars Minis stuff.
16- A box of computer parts. Also, all of the empty boxes from the latest gaming rig I built. I dunno why, I hold onto those for ages.
17- My drafting table. Where I do all of my sketchwork.
18- Art junk.
19- Some games and some trash.
20- My filing cabinet, where all the boring, tedious, business paperwork goes.
21- An unopened box containing comic book art boards, for a project I’m working on.
22- Planetside, and some hardcover copies of my books.
23- An unopened box from Newegg. A small little mobo fan I need to replace.
24- Games, paperwork etc. I think I see Black and White 2 there.
25- My gaming rig. I may bring this to Digital Overload.
26- Some toys and junk. A World of Warcraft troll priest, General Grievous transformer, and one of my girlfriend’s My Little Ponies (she collects them). Dunno why that’s there.
27- My Zboard Keysets.
28- Empty SoBe and water bottles.
29- My Zeke statue.
30- Under the desk, some binders filled with PC games, and some sketchbooks.
31- Books and sketchbooks.
32- More books.
33- My printer.
34- A bunch of the raw artwork from the comics. Once the page is filled up I throw em here on this shelf, until I move them over to the other shelf.
35- My scanner, down on the floor because there’s no room for it elsewhere.
36- My Wacom Cintiq. It’s a beast, but it’s one of the best investments I’ve made. <3 the Cintiq. behind the Cintiq are some video game boxes. Empire at War and EQ2: Kingdom of Sky, I think.
37- Receipts and business paperwork.
38- Junk. My desktop is covered with it. Trash, receipts, random bits. Even a Death Star desktop ball.
39- More junk.
40- My work/utility computer.
41- A case of unopened Star Wars minis booster packs from the Revenge of the Sith expansion. I think there’s also a Mazda RX-8 transformer down there.
42- Dog beds, for when my girlfriend brings her puppies to visit.
43- Books, tools and junk.
44-More books, including my Song of Ice and Fire hardcovers.
45- A couple of video cards, and some old retired CAD t-shirts
46- Comic books and art books. Underneath them, the World of Warcraft collector’s edition
48- My Jayne hat. Also, a bunch of CD’s and some junk.
Ok, time to get cleaning!
