Office silliness [Jan. 25th, 2005|11:37 am]
Zoethe
[Current Mood |geekygeeky]

Our office is getting new printers. While most office equipment grows increasingly compact, these are quite large - they are floor-standing, and each of the secretarial workstations needed to have a notch cut in the desktop to accomodate them.

They are lined up in the hallway right now, 6 of them. They're about waist-high, and almost two feet across. They may not be round, but I can't help it: every time I look at them, I see R2 units.

"Look, sir! Droids!"

EDIT: Right after posting this, I walked into the mailroom and said to the docket clerk, "I know this sounds utterly geeky, but--"

He just grinned. "You don't even have to say it; I already thought the same thing."

I love that I work with a fellow geek.

Lucky. My manager is a geek, but I'm more of a nerd than a geek. =P

Pygmy Daleks would still be something to deal with, I'm sure.

You -must- post a picture. Or at least a product and model so we can go see for ourselves. :-)

I can't help it. I've fallen utterly in love with Star Wars again. And you know what? I'm happy about that.

These aren't the droids you're looking for.

LOL!!

Alas, they are not. I still want an R2 unit of my own.

I've been partial to the R5 units, or, the R3s, but really, they pretty much look like R2, so. . .

Have you ever seen the guys that build their own remote controlled R2 units?

I'm not that ambitious. But Artoo was like the ultimate Swiss Army knife.

Now just to sneak in at night and paint them with red-and-white or blue-and-white stripes and hook 'em up with custom sound generators that will produce the appropriate boops and beeps when you use them. Of course, gotta include an angry twitter when someone does something stupid or something goes really wrong....

I'm intrigued by these printers..trying to picture them. I'd love to have an R2D2 around work.
