Not quite a garret – Flaunt it Friday

I’m discovering many new blogs this month. It seemed like a good way to the most out of National Blog Posting Month. I’m also trying my hand at a few memes, or themed posts. Most memes seem to create a feeling of community and people visit the other sites and comment on what you’ve put up. After more than a year, I’m still receiving only the occasional comment and it can be a bit lonely. This post is part of 2 week old meme called Flaunt it Friday that is hosted at Taken With a Grain of Salt and we’re all showing our workspaces.

  1. I often wonder if I’d get any work at all done with a laptop like that. Mine is a dinosaur, so I keep it on my desk.

    Wonderful! I wish I had a laptop to use anywhere or lounge on the couch with…. This university lifestyle you speack of, sounds great! TFS!

  3. Yes, there are definitely benefits to working on the couch! I think I might want to surf and relax too much though. I don’t think I’d get any bookeeping done. But that’s me – I’m so anal like that!

    I love the tray. I think that works very well.

    Hey, what do you think of the Kids’ Tough Camera picture quality? I’ve read mixed reviews and was thinking of getting one for my three year old this Christmas, but many people says the quality sucks.

    Thanks for playing along!

  4. I used to do that when I was Pregnant and Huge!! I didn’t feel like lugging all that baby to the computer desk!
