I am going to assume for the purposes of today’s 10 on Tuesday prompt that Carole had physical bulletin boards in mind, not Pinterest boards, since it’s easy enough to hop on over there and see what I’ve pinned. I’m not going to click through to her site until I’m done writing, though, just in case I’m wrong.
I don’t have a bulletin board exactly, but I do have plush cube walls with an array of crap pinned to them, which I think qualifies them for this post. Here’s just some of what’s up there:
1. A couple of Dilbert cartoons. This one is my all-time favorite. My current career, in three panels.
2. Two Caps posters. One is a plain “Let’s go Caps!” cheer card from the playoffs last year (or maybe the year before) and the other is a freebie Winter Classic one.
3. A wallet-size photo of my nephews D & G. It’s a studio portrait from a couple of years ago and they’re both so stiff that they look like wooden dolls. I really need a better/more recent one.
4. The office phone list. This gets updated monthly, yet my copy is from June 2011. Might be time to print a new one…
5. A post-it note with a frowny-face and “I’m sorry” on it from my colleague Jason. We were talking about this recently, and neither of us remember what he was sorry for.
6. Notes and folders. One side of the cube has clips that hold my current project stuff. It could probably do with some cleaning – I am not actually sure that “current” would describe everything that’s still hanging there. Everything is more recent than my phone list, though.
7. A small plastic baby. Last year, I got the baby – and therefore all the luck – in the King Cake we got for Mardi Gras. I didn’t want to risk the luck by throwing it away, so I saved it on my swag wall.
8. Two strings of multicolored Christmas lights. I hung them two years ago at the holidays and never took them down. I turn them on occasionally on gray days when I need a pick-me-up.
9. A framed picture of Farin, Alison, Lynn, and me in front of the Treasury in Petra. It’s kind of a dark photo, but it reminds me of our trip to Jordan, which was possibly the best vacation I’ll ever take.
10. The organizational and divisional “OGSP” documents. I can’t remember what OGSP stands for, but these are the one-page planning documents that rule all.
