Thirteen things on my desk right now that have NOTHING to do with my work:
(sorry, I don't have a digitial camera so I can't post a pictures, but just so you know how this all fits, it's like a huge U-shaped desk with a big bulletin board attached...thanks for asking, Daisy:)

1. picture of my husband holding me:), family picture from last fall, and Amanda's school picture.

2. A stuffed Kiwi friend with a long beak that one of my staff brought back for me from her trip to New Zealand.

3. A collection of bouncing head lizards and a turtle that another staff member has been building for me every time he and his wife got to Mexico.

4. A brass clock I received as a parting gift from the people I worked with in Regina many moons ago.

5. Several stress balls and toys accumulated while working with my former employer.

6. An "I (heart) mom" mug that my daugher made for me for my first Mother's Day.

7. A voluptuous ballerina statue in a tutu...given to me by one of my staff a couple of years ago when I was taking ballet.

8. Hand lotion.

9. A day brightener (you know, one of the flip-calendars with a message/quote to brighten your day...thanks for asking, Tracy)

10. The lyrics to the Fraggle Rock theme of my staff put the song on my computer so it would play everytime I logged in...

Dance your cares away,
Worry's for another day.
Let the music
Down at Fraggle Rock.

Work your cares away,
for another day.
Let the Fraggles play,
Down at Fraggle

11. Several water bottles.

12. A small stuffed Winnie THE Pooh from a former co-worker.

13. A Sunbeam Hot Shot (hot water dispenser for making tea...on a lovely tray...given to me by my friend Alana 2 years ago for's actually on the credenza behind me)

You're so lucky that your desk decorations can reflect who you are. I have to share my desk, so I just have a tiny stuffed lizard from my parents' trip to Arizona, plus a few CDs for when the internet's down and I can't stream music. We aren't even allowed to change the background on our computer or add programs!

Karin said...

You have a very interesting desk! Thanks for stopping by :)
