Etsomnia™ 261: The Work-From-Home Edition

12 Comments

Etsom·ni·a (/etˈsämnēə/), noun, 1. a sleep disorder caused by obsessive Etsy browsing. 2. The surprising arrival of weird handmade merchandise ordered when one is only half conscious. (True story.) 3. An excuse for me to be an obnoxious, snarky New Yorker once per week.

Since this awful virus has caused millions of people to work from home, I thought this week, Etsomnia™ should include some items intended to make our house-bound work lives easier. Of course, as usual, some of the home office-enhancing items are wildly successful, while others are somewhat less so.

I hope we all get to resume our normal lives soon, but in the meantime, at least we’ve got Etsy to keep us amused!

While it’s intended for a baby shower, this photo backdrop would do a great job of hiding what a dump you live in during video calls!

The biggest upside of all this madness is that my work wardrobe has gotten a lot stretchier. By MamaGlitter
If you’re worried about your colleagues seeing your undyed roots, this turban with very convincing built-in bangs has got you covered. Literally.
I certainly don’t think any of MY colleagues are smoking it up at home, but I suspect this may be the most useful item in today’s post for some people. By CannaKits

  3. Thanks for including my working from home magnet. But I have to say my fav is the conference call bingo. Makes me wish I had to have a conference call meeting today!

  6. Comfy clothes for the win! That’s the one thing about my suddenly unemployed life that I’m embracing – stretch and soft fabrics. We are very lucky in that a) our kids are old enough to understand the rules surrounding having a parent working from home and b) I’ve got no work to do to or do so I can supervise them. Their father, therefore, can work in relative peace. I think the cats pester him more than the humans. I can only imagine the stress of those trying to juggle working from home with caring for much younger children.
