What's On Your Desktop?

We're having guests over for dinner this evening, so, mercifully, I'm having to clean my desk off. I've got a nice big desk, which makes for a nice big mess at times. For the fun of it, I decided to take inventory, from left to right and top to bottom. Here's the body count:
  • A whole bunch of miscellaneous papers
  • A framed photo of Zach on Tolmie Peak when he was much younger
  • A Borders gift card from my sister
  • An old Issues, Etc. CD
  • A small box of raisins
  • Lutheran Service Book
  • Heaven on Earth: The Gifts of Christ in the Divine Service
  • Daniel: Encouragement for Faith
  • The Bondage of the Will
  • Yoga and the Body of Christ: What Position Should Christians Hold?
  • Cellphone
  • Digital camera
  • Current issue of Christian Research Journal
  • iPod
  • Stack of mail
  • Laptop
  • A Time of Departing: How Ancient Mystical Practices are Uniting Christians With the World's Religions
  • A 5 x 7 photo of Cheryl that I'm supposed to mail to my mom
  • Women Pastors? The Ordination of Women in Biblical Lutheran Perspective
  • NIV Bible
  • A coaster
  • Lamp
  • Speakers
  • Joystick
  • Desktop computer
  • Lutheran Worship
  • Webcam
  • Two more old Issues, Etc. cd's
  • Current issue of Steadfast Quarterly: The Journal of the Brothers of John the Steadfast
  • Church membership directory
  • Current issue of Air Line Pilot
  • Radio/CD player
No wonder I can't get anything done.

Size of this thing? Sounds like a monster!

It's about 18 square feet, and curves around to the right, so it's pretty functional.

That's no way to treat your copy of the Christian Research Journal - at least, those issues that still have my name listed in them!

I'm a neat-freak about my office, so I can only have on my desk what I am working on at the moment; everything else has to be in its proper place. I abhor clutter--it troubles me. Just thinking about what that desk must *look* like...

Come to think of it, your desk sounds a lot like my wife's.

Your's is a better way o.h. lee. The desk is usually at least somewhat organized, it just doesn't sound that way.
