No job at the moment, so my pony website is my 'job!'  Yes, I have ponies at work; I have ponies all over the house!

My previous job was in the service center of a car dealership. I liked to rotate out brushable G4's each month.  Snow Catcher  ended up hanging around for two months because I like her colors so much. Here's a nice pic of her in front of a photo on my desk:

I had Wednesdays off. On a Thursday, I came in to find this:

Warning: not for the faint of heart!

Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.

People were afraid I'd be super upset, but I actually laughed my head off. Big tough guys thought they were going to make me upset about the pony, but I had a realization the moment I saw her hanging there... Those guys had to play with the pony in order to do this!

I have the Applejack and Fluttershy blind bags underneath my monitor. They're perfect as I don't have to worry about the guys (I work with a lot of them) don't try and do anything weird  with the hair or something :)

Wish I could, but as I work in the lobby area of my job, and there are at least a hundred people trekking through the building every day, anything personal I have would likely be stolen.  Especially if it was a toy!  :(  We do have a chalkboard wall though so maybe I could draw some ponies on it.  :)

I work in disability support and recently started doing "sleepover" shifts where I stay at the house overnight so someone is there in case a client has a problem/needs help in the night.  The first night I did a sleepover I was so nervous that I packed my spare g4 pinkie pie to keep me company.  I liked having her by the bed so much that I now take her on every sleepover shift XD.

I keep her in my bag until the other staff have gone home and all the clients are in bed, though, so nobody else sees her.  It's fun having her there, though  :)

Love the pony pen pot!  So much win.  :)

And it's ok to have ponies around big tough guys, I had unicorns all over my locker when I was working at my last job, with all guys.  I would hide unicorns around their stuff too, just to irritate them!  XD

I must have that coloring book!!!

I love coloring, I often join the kids at the table and color with them.  They like the company, I like to listen to their chatter (kids are hilarious), and I get to color while making sure that no little ones eat the crayons (we have one little boy who eats all the white ones).  Some day, I'll scan and upload the rest of my book, that's not even half the pages!  There are baby ponies in there too and I think some sea ponies.  I bought it specifically for the one page with Little Flitter.

shockingly, I don't, but my co-worker does!  She's got bright pink hair, and a few years ago someone left a McDonalds pony in the back room and we gave it her tattoo as a cutie mark and she's had it on her nail station ever since!

I have a peculiar work setup, it's a scungy old laptop but mounted onto something that best resembles the crash cart from an ER, and with a couple printers too.  (Long story.)  Anyway, it's very blah, so of course it's all full of personalized stuff: many, many photos of my son, unbelievably pertinent Dilbert cartoons, hilarious typos from the blissfully clueless gang at head office, ... and McPinkie Pie 2012, McFluttershy 2012, and McSparkleworks 2005. ^.^  Every so often a management-type comes along and suggests I "tidy up" my station, and every so often a few of my tchotchkes take a sabbatical for a day or two. :P  I work best in clutter.

I don't have any on my desk at work. I really want to, but I work in an optometry office that is an optical store as well, and my desk is smack dab on the store floor. People (including kids) walking all around it. I feel like the boss would say something. (We were just told we can't wear pants with pockets because that makes them jeans. Um, there are a lot of dress pants/slacks with pockets on them. Great.)

I used to carry Lil Honey Pie and Baby Stockings in my purse to high school. But I am going to put some ponies in my sewing/jewelry making room. I would like to think of that as my real workplace. My teeny tiny newborns are my all-time favorite ponies, along with the lovely persona custom I received in the last swap I did. <3
