Our bedrooms say a lot about us, I think. So if you want, make your own post with pictures of your bedroom, and any specific trinkets or nooks you think we’d like to see.
My own room was recently a disaster area, but I’ve been cleaning and rearranging it all weekend. *Warning, extremely photo-heavy. Duh.* The results are enclosed
Here’s a nice shot of my room at the height of awfulness. My bed was disassembled at the time… That huge wooden box with wheels is meant to house a synthesizer keyboard, but I’ve been keeping my swords in it.
Here’s the habitable half of the room! :KD I transposed the positions of the bed and computer stuff. My desks used to sit at the foot of my bed, but I found that sitting on a mattress for extended periods kills your back. So back to using a conventional chair! A…peach-colored…conventional…armchair. 6,6
Here’s where I sleep. And being the lazy cat I am, I sleep a lot. Stuffed animals everywhere, yay. They’re not the ideal bed companion, but they’re far better than an empty bed. Represented are lions, panthers, leopards, horses, huskies, and dolphins. I have yet to get my hands on a nice big tiger plushie, a fox, snow leopard, wolf, or dragon. Someday!
Anyone wondering what I see when I’m typing to you, well…this is it these days. My rig is far from a powerhouse, but it’s modern enough to let me play most games. I’d like to replace my monitor with a LCD one, (the current monitor is about thirty pounds!) but I’m holding off for now. Pay no attention to the irony of a package of cookies and a canister of Slim Fast in the same frame. The peach armchair used to be Trickster’s, by the way. :K)
Larger images here, because I want to make sure the detail is preserved. This is my little treasure chest… A box from Tanzania mailed home to me from my sister. I filled it with a portion of my gemstone collection.
And in a little secret compartment…a warp crystal to Aquaria! No, it’s another semi-precious stone. Beneath it are a bunch of bullets I removed from a rifle discarded on our lawn by a drunken coon-hunter a few years ago. I decided it’d be best to return the weapon to him unloaded when he returned for it a day later. (I did shoot it once though, in the backyard before anyone else knew about the rifle. First time I ever fired a gun.)
This is practically the computer chop shop. The systems you see here were rescued from curbs around town. I have four 15″ monitors, two Windows 95 systems, one Windows 98 system, and some crazy busted rig with a Russian BIOS. If anyone local (or anyone coming to Anthrocon or Morphicon next year) can use any of this stuff, let me know! And yes, that’s a Boba Fett helmet atop the printer paper. I got it from Asmo before he moved to Colorado. I should enhance the paint job and replace the flimsy visor…
This bookcase represents a portion of the material I like to read. Most of my fantasy/sci-fi novels are in the other bookcase. This one contains my comicbooks, graphic novels, old textbooks and my DVD collection. I’ve saved money whereever possible assembling this mess. My semi-local used bookstore is a wonderful place to grab DVDs for five bucks apiece.
The fire extinguisher box! Soltris and Arcturax were with me when I found this thing at Mendelson’s. I’m going to mask off the handle and windows, and paint it up…then put some green lights inside and call it a cryogenic chamber. Why? Because I can. It makes a nice storage bin too.
A print I acquired at the very first art auction I’d ever been to, at the very first convention I’d ever attended: Millenicon, a smallish local sci-fi con.
Well I’m sure that was mind-numbingly boring. I hope your rooms are more interesting!
Meh. I should be in bed.
