Nerdery Week: Welcome to the Jungle

My Nerdery is in the basement in the back of the house. Half the basement in our house is finished, and in this finished room is where you will frequently find me either surfing or blogging or just listening to iTunes. It is not much, but it is mine. I don't have a whole lot of time to post this morning before work, but I thought that this would provide a good overview before I delve into the specifics of the Nerdery.

So, as you come down the basement steps and round the corner, this is what you will find.

That crappy paneling was there when we moved in. There are plans to paint it eventually. There are also plans to replace the carpet. This will begin once it becomes legal for me to use Monopoly money at Lowe's.

And here's a shot from another angle.

See anything intriguing? Rest assured, explanations are forthcoming. But it is now time for me to head out into the ice and snow and put in my 8 hours. (or 9 or 9.5 as the case may be.)

In the meantime, here's a link to other Nerdery Week posts today (updated as they come in):
  1. Matt's shelf in his home office
  2. Caryle and her books
  3. TKT's desk

ooo i love it - it's like when the Nobody Else cd came out by Take That and i spent hours examining the cover to see what was on there. I will get back to you soon once i've had a thorough poke around your basement.

PS I hope Heidi's throat is better :)

That office rules...I really dug the old 1970s King Kong stuff back in the corner. I was obsessed with that movie as a child. What's cooler than King Kong leaping from one tower to the next? I submit that nothing is cooler.

I'm displaying my almost horrifying need to keep books today - complete with visual evidence.

I have to admit, though, I'm sort of sad I don't have any action figures or movie posters to fully declare my nerdiness.

Sweet Nerdey Dan! It's going to be a blast to see the details of what's contained in that truly nerdy workspace of yours. I think you and I have some similiar 'themes' going and they'll become a bit more evident as the week plays out.

Dang this is awesome.
