What’s in YOUR wallet…

by Kay~Kacey on 5/26/2005

Okay, I don’t want to actually know what’s in your wallet. I want to know what sits on your desk beside your computer…

yep, that’s my always there stash. A glass saucer (of my grandmother’s) with some of my favorite rocks on it. I pick them up and fiddle with them when I’m thinking. A hand blown pen and ink well that my dh got me. Nice for writing out notes when I’m stuck. Really sexy to write with. And a glass paperweight with flowers inside that was my other grandmother’s. It always fascinated me when I was a little girl. Then my wheelo to play with just because :mrgreen: And my very hip pink and black reading glasses :cool2:

So what’s sitting on your desk??

I really don’t use my desk anymore, pretty much a laptop girl. So, my laptop is on the kitchen counter next to my Kitchen-Aid mixer, my iPod, a bottle of hair detangler, a comb, a Dora the Explorer cd, Madonna cd, cell phone, phone book open to gopher exterminators and a variety of hair scrunchies.

I don’t use a desk either! Which means I have piles in various places of pens, pads, and various office supplies because basically I am attracted to office supplies some birds to shiny objects …

Crap, crap, and more crap. Mostly papers right now. Some pictures. 3 seashells, a river rock with “Create” carved into it…a Tom and Jerry DVD, and my entire collection of nail polish. (Don’t worry, I only own 3 bottles. :cool2: Let’s see, there’s also a suicidal plant my son gave me for mother’s day, a book, and half a dozen hairbands. For some reason, I take them out of my hair when I sit down. :crazy2:

Depends on where my laptop is sitting. If it’s on my desk, that’s actually pretty clean, LOL. But I have a shelf above my desk with a copy of each of my books to remind myself that I can do it!

:coffee: Always my coffee cup, often my daughter’s half empty soda can. Books, magazines, son’s toys and dog’s toys. Books. A three hole punch and inspirational sayings propped up or taped on. My folder full of rejections. I should move that….

A coffee mug, a flower pot filled with beans and silk flower pens, and pictures of the kids. Along with a lot of bills to be paid! :twocents:

Stuff, stuff, stuff. Papers, reference books, pics taped on the wall by the monitor, sticky notes around the monitor, a cup of tea in my favorite mug, pens in my second-favorite mug, my mini-gargoyle collection, a cherub hugging a star (symbolic gift from a writer bud), headphones & a couple of mood music CDs, and like Suzanne, my books on a shelf to remind me that I can do this. Oh, and my mistle-toad hanging over the doorway. Plus a cat, usually.

Oh, man, let’s see… a box of Kleenex (the real deal!), my desk calendar of church bulletin bloopers, my checkbook, CD burner, external floppy drive, calculator, tape dispenser, stapler, the notebook I use for keeping my score on Jeopardy :mrgreen: , a coffee mug with a bunny on it that’s full of pens, markers, letter opener, scissors (for some strange reason I have 3 pair) & ruler, the tv/satellite receiver remote, stereo remote, my eyeglasses case, and a pack of index cards.

Pretty darn boring!

kacey May 27, 2005 at 5:49 pm

you know, I have much cooler stuff than you guys do! :mrgreen: You need some toys and some “thinkin’ things” to fiddle with! :coffee2:

Brenda Bradshaw May 27, 2005 at 7:44 pm

LOL! I love this! I don’t think you really wanna know what’s on my desk though. Your stash looks incredibly impressive next to my scattering of books, papers, unopened mail, diet soda cans and kids’ drawings. ~sigh~

Love your site. Mind if I link you from my blog?

kacey May 27, 2005 at 8:16 pm

Brenda…notice I only took a picture of a tiny slice of my desk… The fun stuff :crazy2: I’m not telling what’s on the rest of my desk… :secret:

And yes, Brenda, link away :beer: the more the merrier!

Margery Scott May 28, 2005 at 7:35 am

Compared to the rest of you, my desk is BORING!!! Kleenex (not the real deal), books, scraps of paper, a mini tape recorder I haven’t used but I’m thinking about, bills to pay, post-it notes, and my ever-present cup of tea.

Tori May 28, 2005 at 12:23 pm

Hey, I forgot about my ever-present LARGE glass of Diet Coke!

Mary May 28, 2005 at 2:01 pm

What’s on my desk? My forehead because I’m pounding it on the wood because I can’t get my manuscript right!!:mad2:

Steph T. May 28, 2005 at 4:00 pm

I’ve got a stone frog (you know – SEALs/frogman -:rofl:) and diet coke, gum and m&m’s (for when things get really bad.)

gena showalter May 28, 2005 at 6:20 pm

Notebooks, pens, post its, piles and piles of never ending paper, and at any given time an extra large bottle of Advil 🙂

Toni Anderson May 28, 2005 at 8:11 pm

Kacey–thanks for visiting my blog.
My desk has papers (from the two online courses I’m doing this month), pictures of my hero/heroine, a picture of the Alberta Rockies that a good friend gave me many years ago, Writing guidelines, GMC charts, RWA calander, post cards from where I lived in Scotland, Beatrix Potter birthday book, CD’s, picture of 3 bouncing pigs and a house by my daughter, a picture of me and my 3 year old daughter snorkelling off the GBR, a picture of me and my family with Uluru in the background.

Not bad. Needs cleaned!!!

PS. Agree on the soccer!

Melissa Marsh May 28, 2005 at 9:08 pm

Oh wow…my desk is a disaster area. Snoopy stuff (mostly the Literary Ace persona), lots of books, paperwork, magazines, photographs, the list is endless. 🙂

Sasha May 29, 2005 at 6:30 pm

😯 DO I have to look around my desk?

I have a dirty plate (I just finsihed eating a pizza) three notebooks and a bunk of pens and highlighters. A glass of Diet vanilla Coke and a Goddess candle shelter. (To remind me that everythignis within my reach…if I want it)
