Scruffy?

Further to yesterday’s picture of my desk (and the suggestion that pah! it wasn’t scruffy enough) here’s a little video I took on my phone this morning of my office. So – all you doubting Douglases – is it scruffy enough? Or is it me…

    Doubting Douglas here… looks like staged scruffiness Nik, piling up your books and giving them a gentle push, leaving a drawer open and rummaging about in it before filming, and the wardrobe too… saw no dust or cobwebs or dead flies or the bodies of spiders curled into scribbles… and the smell, (for there was a smell in that film) was not sour.Doubting is what we Douglas’s do. Sorry.:-)D

    Ah! The doubting Douglas appears! And makes me chuckle. And that smell… Yes, I should probably admit to it. It’s a scented candle and it’s called Fairy Dust. And it is not girly in the slightest. ;)Good to see you over here, as ever.Nik

    Thinking about this some, Nik. Why so much effort to prove that you are scruffy? Normally it is something we seek to disprove, or to hide at least. Cleanliness is next to godliness and all that sort of thing. Or is this your personal rebellion against the order of things? Cos if it is, I get that.I am a schoolteacher and for years I carried all my schoolwork (books needing marked, lesson plans, etc etc) to and from school in a succession of deliberately out-of-season carrier bags. It was my way of saying that although I was wearing a tie and pressed trousers and shiny shoes, ‘the system hasn’t got all of me.’ I grew my hair long for the same reason… till I could stand it no longer.So, if this is you thumb-biting at the order of the world, your life, things, then I withdraw my doubts… your desk and your workspace is scruffy, Nik. There I have conceded. But I do so with the added condition that any attempt to restore order into said workplace is at best half-hearted.Best, alwaysD

    Ha! Brilliant. I love the idea of me working in a shit pit is thumb biting. Honestly it’s just an accident. No matter how much I tidy (usually full hearted) it ends up, in no time, looking like that. I think it’s a sort of room atavism. Though I must admit that I usually like things this way; it’s my system. Can get a bit much though.As for the system – never really been a fan ;)Nik
