Ia! Ia!

I am an occupational hazard waiting to happen today. I wish I could say that the stacks of samples perched willy-nilly along the edges of my cube’s walls were the building blocks for a Fortress of Evil, but alas. It’s awfully hard to make a Fortress of Evil out of colorful children’s books. Bunnies and farm animals just aren’t all that intimidating.

So, instead, I watch as people walk by and cringe if someone’s footfalls are too heavy, waiting for the inevitable crash. I’ll have a hell of a mess to clean up if they fall (and maybe some apologizing to do, if the heavy-treaded ones are too close.) But right now, there’s nowhere else to put anything; there’s so much sample material that it has overtaken the surface of my desk and made me resort to the stacking of things atop narrow ledges.

However, once it’s all mailed out and the leftovers put away, I am sorely tempted to open up a package of monsters and a package of knights and lay out a battlefield along my desktop.

The only problem with that is that Cthulhu is one of the monsters (yes, we have a children’s book featuring the greatest of the Great Old Ones.) I think he might eat all the others, rather than side with the rest of the hellspawn.

And then, when I come in one day and find that all my coworkers have turned into fish people, I’ll feel really bad.

    What about NG? Would you be sad about her?

    I only have one request if you do happen to make your desktop battlefield, or hell, even if all your coworkers turn into fish people.

    No. She would be the first sacrifice to Dagon.

    As Murphy’s Law would have it, I set up a battle scene after everyone left yesterday. It was great – knights being chased by the Headless Horseman, two bishops fending off Jekyll and Hyde, only to have a demon sneaking up on them, the Abominable Snowman scaling a castle, and in the background, Cthulhu and Jesse m-f’in Custer* watching the whole affair.

    Then I realized my cell phone batteries were dead (I know, Deb just fell out of her chair in shock), and alas, I couldn’t take a picture.

    However, they tubes o’monsters are now at home, where I have an even better camera, and pictures of EPIC BATTLES will be forthcoming.

    *okay, so Jesse’s not part of either set, but he’s been guarding my desk for six years. Who am I to leave him out of the fun?
