In Honor of SysAdmin Day…

Work Desk Essentials For This SysAdmin:

My Cluttered Desk

  1. iPod – the music keeps me sane.
  2. Red Swingline Stapler – blatant Milton reference, a must for any informed cube dweller.
  3. Headphones – for those really bad days when I don’t want to be bothered. And if they’re big enough, I don’t even have to be listening to anything in order to get away with ignoring people.CAT5 Noose
  4. Pen/Pencil Cup – and can you see the Tide Pen in there? That’s the real necessity for me & my wardrobe!
  5. Darth Vader Bobble-heads – to show my allegiance to the dark side & to protect the pencil cup!
  6. Dave Barry daily calendar – for my morning chuckle.
  7. iTop – fulfills 2 of my passions; spinning tops & geeky tech toys.
  8. Mini St. Louis Cardinals McFarlane figures of Pujols & Edmonds – Go Cards! (and McFarlane toys just rock!)
  9. Plastic Spider – just for fun.
  10. Demotivational Coffee cup by – gotta have a vessel to get my daily dose of caffeine, so it might as well reflect who I am. It’s also sitting on a coaster made from a circuit board.
  11. 19” LCD Monitor – so I can keep up with Cardinal day games with ESPN’s live gamecast.
  12. Stress Ball – before last week there were two. I accidentally ripped one in half Thursday – not a good day to be me.
  13. Hangman’s Noose that I tied out of a CAT5 Network Cable – if you have to ask, you’ll never understand.

14.  Nerf dart gun – for protection against random network clients.

15.  Atomix Radio-Controlled Clock – because you just have to know when the official 4:00PM rolls around according to WWVB near Fort Collins, Colorado… and just how far past it you have to stay.

    1. Some of us have to be happy with the staple the was in the cube to begin with.

      It’s ok though. I don’t have to worry about people taking it though. It’s old and very heavy. I do arm curls with it. No really I do.

      OK. My turn to shower and put my head down.

      P.S. If you can’t tell. I am very tired.
