Work Station #2

Might as well move on to the beautiful seating options next to Work Station #1. Here we have Work Station #2. That's a printer. That's a pink seat that does not fit on the chair frame. That's inspiration.

Work Station

I submit the following: The Work Station.

I guess when the computer (in this case the monitor only) is useless you do not think to toss it in the trash, donate it or recycle it. You just go ahead and move it some place else. I would toss it but I'm afraid they would be upset with me.

Bonus: this is one of many pieces of restaurant style furniture you will find upstairs at Prime. Making business happen here at Prime.

You know who shows up.

Good old what's his name looks over the eating area downstairs... If you look closely you'll see "When do you come back" scrawled out under the portrait.

The Car Drawing

So here is the drawing above Lorrie's desk. I do not know the history of it but you will see that there is a photo of a similar car on the right side of the frame. The guy in the photo looks to be a younger Lorrie. I'll take a close up of that and I'll ask him about the car. Who drew it and all of that... There is another Corvette photograph and 3 photos of a Benz. I couldn't tell you what year or make they are... The odd thing about this is that these brothers (all 3 brothers, not sure about the mystery brother) drive Cadillacs for years now...

Lunch table

The guys down stairs are classy. Make no mistake.

Desk of Erika

Working conditions at maximum efficiency. This is the hub of the finance department. As you can see Erika has everything under control. In truth this is whats behind her desk... The desk itself is in a bit better condition... Photo to follow.

I can't live without my RADIO!

Just in case you needed a 20+ year old radio, we have one.

Bed Time

You would think the two of them would be sleeping in the warehouse... We have mattresses available.

Cast Member #2: Lorriezzzzzzz....

So, here is Lorrie. The keeper of post its. Yes, that's a skateboard brand shirt, Darkstar (of course) which signifies to all that come to Prime that he is indeed a "man of skateboarding". As you can see he has picked a nice warm little spot down stairs. This makes it a bit tougher to photograph. I do not want to us the flash but the light from outside is too bright. Have to move in for the shot. I have a feeling we'll be seeings some super close ups soon...

Cast Member #1: Louiezzzzzzzzzzz....

As you can see, this blog is going to get creepy as I sneak around trying to take photos of half dead old guys... That's Louie. I must have walked past him 6 times. Nothing. I'll work up to some close ups before long... It's 1:00 pm by the way.


Is there a reason these have been here for 30 years? Maybe longer? Can you see the dust?

Coffee Cans and Owls = hat holders

Well, I really blew this one. About a year ago, maybe more, there were 12 coffee cans up there. The BIG size. For some reason Louie got so upset when I started throwing them away. I didn't realize that those cans where his hat holder. Yes, that's right. His hat holder. I guess the owl is his guardian of the hat. So now we only have 2 cans. And an owl.

The Desk of Louie...

I was told that Lorrie's desk looked like it was staged (see below). That it couldn't possibly be like that at all times. I'm here to tell you that the photo was not set up. Its been like that since I've been here, a few years now. To contrast Lorrie's desk I present to you the working space of Louie. I think its safe to say that the computer has never been turned on.

Ready for the first of many Prime Wood Products Office Quizzes? Go!

Can you find the computer in this photo? Bonus question: If a computer is found, is it plugged in?

For those of you that know the characters, this is Lorrie's desk. I'll have photos of the players soon. Just waiting for them to fall asleep downstairs...

So, here is the long promised documentation of my days at the Prime Wood Products headquarters in beautiful Hawthorne California.

I've decided that it is now time to bring the magic that I have long been hording to the masses. Some of the images may be shocking to some. So, please, brace yourself.
I thought it might be in good taste to start by presenting some of the quality fine art I am fortunate to have surrounding me during my work day. I think that's a Pollock in the back there. I'm not sure thought. Maybe an 80% chance. Cross your fingers.
