** Fun Monday update: For those of you still doing the rounds, my friend carpetblogger was an unofficial Fun Monday entrant. Check out her Instanbul blogging environment (she has the best looking support staff in town).
Today’s Fun Monday is brought to you by my compatriot, Willowtree, and for the full list of participants this week, you can visit him at A Dingo’s got my Barbie. I encourage you to visit, there’s free vegemite sandwiches at the door. (Not really, but there should be).
The theme for this week’s fun Monday is ‘blogging environment’. This is fairly easy for me, seeing as I have an apartment the size of a shoe box. I have a living room, bedroom, teeny tiny kitchen and a bathroom. Not much choice really.
But I also have a laptop computer and wireless internet (not exactly reliable), so my blogging environment could really by anywhere within my 50 squares.
Mostly, though, my ‘computer room’ is the one that is also the telly room, the reading room, and, if we had a piano, it would be the piano room too.
Here’s a picture of my blogging environment:
Notice the crochet nana-rug on my knees? Not only did I make it myself, but I hoiked it all the way to Ukraine to keep me warm. And they still haven’t really fixed up the heating so I’m using it this morning.
Now, let’s examine my desk in greater detail. Firstly, my mouse-pad. It’s a small coffee-table book about Australia. “What’s it doing on your desk?” you ask. Ay, there’s the rub. My desk isn’t a desk per se, rather, and this will shock you, it’s a coffee table.
See the two glasses next to the computer? That’s the remnants of last nights coupla glasses of Georgian red wine.
Underneath the desk there are a number of magazines, and a couple of hard drives to play music from. My speakers? They’re built into the computer of course. And all the computer cords, when not in use, conveniently tuck away into the footstool you see in the backgrounds of the pics.
The true beauty of this position is that I can type at the computer, and without moving my head, I can also watch telly.
Talk about an assault of the senses.
So, that was a rather mediocre post, was it not?
Here’s something to get you excited. Sunrise in Kyiv from the living room window you see shining in the photos above.
First, the sun just peeking over the buildings across the road…
Then a little more…
Then a little more than the one before….
Then even more than the one before and the one before that….
And finally way more than the one before x(times) four…
(Well, how the heck else can you commentate a sunrise?)
Have a great fun Monday. Love Little Miss Moi xx
PS Can you see the reflection of my in my pink pyjamas in the door?
