I have not seen the top of my desk in months. Not only that, but if I were to inventory all the stuff on it, I would take up about two pages in a Word document.... Times New Roman, font size 10.

I'll give you a small sampling.
Several lighters
A hackey sack from Dan...
My prayer rock from SEMP
Several books, among which is included All I Really Needed To Know I Learned in Kindergarten (which I'm not even sure how I aquired)
A copy of Marx Brothers Go West and A Night At The Opera (on the same tape)
A graphing calculator
A two-year-old calendar which I found buried under a pile of... well.... STUFF!
Toothpaste? Why is there toothpaste on my desk? (Yes, it's in a tube.... Although I did have to double check to make sure... )
Assorted dishes
Email addresses without names attached
Perscription sunglasses
Toothpicks (I love my toothpicks. They're great fun. )
The Braveheart soundtrack
Several CDs
A very old report card
An invoice from my school district for $50! WEEHOO! (That's fairly recent.... as in two months ago...)
An apple shaped stress ball from the Canadian Ministry of Education from Ms. Byrne
The case for my perscription sunglasses
A doorknob from Ms. Morgan's portable
A twist tie (badly used)
The tie from the hood of my hoodie
Dried lavender (in a vase of sorts)
My dad's three-hole-punch
A goldish snake belt thing that I used to wear around my neck for fun
An HTML color code
etc, etc, etc....



I'll never know the cost, but all of Him is more than enough for all of me....

It's a family desk... are you interested in my actual desk? It's a double desk, and you don't want to know.

On this one, a movie, a DVD (Gangs of New York), some gloves for me tomorrow) and a note on how I can take care of a speeding ticket. Oh, a fern and a dolphin glove.
