Things on my desk…
Monday, March 29th, 2010

I don’t know what this will tell you about me, but these are all the things that clutter up the top of my large, light oak corner desk:

* monitor and printer
* Galileo thermometer
* desklamp
* small bottle of purel
* hand lotion
* two fruity coasters waiting for a cup of coffee
* three flash drives
* bamboo plant
* dragon holding a letter opener
* crystal pendulum
* small King Kong statue
* pink plastic bucket holding Post-its
* telephone
* address book
* pink computer paper
* flower-bordered notepad
* flower-bordered Post-it cube
* small yellow basket holding two cameras, Iron Man Pez dispenser, smiley-face stress ball, sucker with a grasshopper in it, chapstick, nail file
* Russian lacquer-ware pen holder
* Dragon pen holder
* electric pencil sharpner
* crystal frog with more pens
* candle
* glass star with “Superstar” written on it
* book of affirmations opened to “I am talented”
* leather-bound, hand-made book, intended to be my personal Book of Shadows but which instead has pages of pretty stamps because I was experimenting with them
* tape recorder
* dragon stapler
* standing file with things I haven’t looked at in months
* three worry stones: carnelian, bloodstone, clear crystal

Tell me 5 things sitting on your desk now!

    well since my desk is the kichen table. I have
    Laptop with wireless keyboard
    a big plant
    bills
    flashlight
    post-its (lots of them)
    flyers
    pencile/pen holder

    Boy do I wish I have an office with a desk in it.
    Some where along I lost my desk and a place to work. So I took over the kichen table when my kids moved back home about couple of years back.

    Icia! I lived in Texas when I first started writing, and I had my own office. When my son lost his job, he and his family moved in with me. I culled junk and went to a very small desk that I parked in a corner of my bedroom for privacy. It worked well!

    NJ! Four flashes! You have me beat. We are obsessive, aren’t we?

    magazines
    Text books
    fun books
    and a Chinese magazine I am translating.

    Do you think you will finish Beloved Captor by the end of the week?

    Rachel! I have to see a pic of that brothel cat pin!

    Lisa! I have pics of kids and dogs in my bedroom! Cough drops? Not feeling well?

    Fedora! The dust rag is funny. The books get in the way of cleaning?

    Julie! Alluring Tales, huh? Great answer. Must have got a pressie in the mail!!

    Lisa J! Wish I knew a great home remedy, but the only thing I do is drink tons of hot tea with lemon and honey.

    Yeah, I have 2 flash drives, one that has all my ebooks on it and personal excel spreadsheets, the other (8GB) which is full of pix. Then I have my portable harddrive too that has everything that both flash drives have on it.

    Pix are also backed up on computer. I’m not obsessive much :)

    Don’t have a desk. But if I did it would probably have my jewelry tools, my current craft project, my top few TBR books, candy and paper and pens on it. As well as a lot of other things.

    I use my coffee table to sit my laptop on until I get around to turning the spare room into a proper, grown-up office! But here are my five items…

    My ereader
    A Moleskine notebook
    A DVD of Iron Man (thanks Dad!)
    Mobile phone
    Empty tea mug…which I am about to remedy.

    *puts kettle on for the eleventy billionth time today*

    Scarlett! Loved Ironman! I recently tried Lipton’s White Tea. It’s flavored with mango and peach, and is lovely for soothing tattered nerves! Just the scent…!

    I heard that Iron Man has a…oh, what’s it called…storyline? Or something.

    All I know is, I’m all about the RDJ, baby! :D
