I dunno...

I just went to make another cup, and Roniece? There's a pamphlet...in my tea.

Not even kidding.

I get in trouble just drinking tea.



(rtfm, Karen!)

It's "Triple Leaf Tea"

then it says DETOX!

cleansing and revitalizing! grin

"made with over 20 potent chinese purification herbs"...

*shaking my head*

I'm scared of me now. I'm switching to water!

Ok, home desk.

Five drawer, L-shape w/hutch cherrywood desk, which sports two glassed cabinets and a objet d’art [dust-catcher stuffs]. Instead of putting in the faux backdrop, I left the back “open” so my wall shows, and on the wall [gee, this isn’t on the desk, but part of it, right?] is a neat little poem called The Writer’s Prayer, written by the ever-so-clever poet, Anonymous, which was sent to me by a PiP friend. Back to the desk.

In the left side cabinet I have some small antique books, and my collection of the Poetry publication, which was started, I believe, in 1912, but I only have the last three years’ worth, which wouldn’t all fit, so some of the earlier copies are stored somewhere else [If I tell you where, I’ll have to go around the room!], along with some favorite snapshots of the kids, and the card my mother sent me [which I prose-poemed long ago], a candle, and a copy of my first novel, first copy. In the right side cabinet I have glass and crystal knick-knacks and a photo-plate of Neil Diamond…another gift; a candle, some angels, a crystal bell, etc. On the shelving in between, which comprises four, is a mixture of assorted knick-knacks from Florida, photos of the kids, objets d’art from garage sales   , some rocks, coral, photos in frames, and my original shorthand book which I picked up in 1967 and keep handy because my business school teacher from those years continues to write me in shorthand every Christmas. I also have gotten use to those pretty eyeglass chains and have been purchasing unusual ones so hold my reading glasses, so there's three sets hanging from the cabinet pulls...sigh...

ON the desktop is my HP color printer/fax/copier, my 2005 Compaq laptop which also sits on a computer “fan” to keep it cool, and directly behind it are two speakers, my plug-ins and Logitech software to keep my keyboard and mouse wireless, my Dymo label printer [and if you got a book from me, I used that Dymo for your label – cute little sucker, too!, besides which sits my Logitech web camera, an angel, a tulip lamp, my Neil Diamond portfolio and my Lipizzaner Stallion portfolio when they came to Salina some years ago, a geode, a faux rock with two frogs sitting on it that has carved in it “Serenity”, two framed photos of family and friends, a little Indian-stoneware vessel that I keep some sort of writing instrument in [I haven’t yet found out what this little writing instrument is, but I’m still searching antiques to figure it out, some scotch tape, a marble pen holder, my business cards and holder, a blue coffee mug from the Eisenhower museum with a variety of fine lined pens and a variety of letter openers in it, underneath which sits an old name plaque, beside which sits an itty-bitty flashlight that does work, and then toward the right rear corner of the desk is one of those multi-plug extension cords that help control shorting out problems, you know what I mean, the word is escaping me, but in front of that is a small square woven basket from my mother-by-love’s collection of “things” which holds my address book, a small telephone book, stamps, return labels, you know, “stuff”… and then a calculator, my cell phone and its’ plug-in, a pretty decorated Kleenex [again from the drawers of my mother-by-love, a poetry book by Mary Crow, our first April poet to read last Tuesday night, a magazine from Catheines, two pens, two pens, my clear plastic desk thingie under which is the calendar of Salina Arts & Humanities events for the next six months, with April showing prominently regarding the 2008 Spring Poetry Series and P.S. did you know we are going to have Ted Kooser here, and he is the 13th United States Poet Laureate who happens to live in Nebraska as our final guest poet….and beside him are two mouse pads and my wireless mouse on one pad – the other mouse pad is used to hold the drink of the evening.

Directly below my computer is my pull out shelf on which sits my wireless keyboard. Let’s not enter the hazards of the drawers…especially the catch-all drawer, or we’ll be here until Christmas.     

This is so much fun!

Kari? Didn't I see a picture of this?

I think I did. Did I?

I remember it being charming and quaint...

and grins on the froggy serenity!

with drools for the cherrywood.

And Suze...

Um, I don't think "Bob" likes me.

He ain't answering. Maybe I should offer him some Hamburger Helper on his voice mail?

oh boy...now I'm all mellow.

What do they put in that Hamburger Helper anyway?

(I can't believe all this stuff is legal. )

This is going to be easy, as I am taking a break from working on a few things, and am currently at my desk. And, what to my wondering eyes should appear?
the computer tower/monitor/keyboard/mouse
the printer/scanner/fax
a couple of business files (on top of the printer)
my wallet and keys (between the monitor and the keyboard
computer speakers (one on the tower, another behind the monitor)
a couple of bills

What would you attempt to do...if you knew you could not fail?.

On my somewhat boring desk sits:

  • Phone/Answering Machine
  • Glasses in holder
  • Tall Antique Lamp, and beside it,
  • A tall Bob Mackie angel Poetdevine sent me a couple of years ago - she is lovely
  • Flat screen and itty bitty speakers
  • Grouping of 6 different height candle holders I light every night
  • My cordless mouse and the thingamajig that makes it work
  • A pile of flyers in a wicker tray to browse through before Mall tomorrow
  • Picture of two little girls that truly keep this ole heart of mine beating
  • Picture of my family, with the Young family
  • Small pictures of Martin Luther King Jr., John F. Kennedy, and John Lennon
  • A flashing New Orleans Mardi Gras necklace hanging on my computer screen from K also turned on every night            
  • Two books I am reading: A New World, and the other is, Travel in Dubai
  • A photo book Janet Marie sent me which I just love looking at on cloudy days
  • A Bengal cat, named Sheba who shares the desk with me if I am good.
  • Small pot of Chinese white flower tea and cup.  My tea also comes with a pamphlet and turns into a flower even!      
  • Cordless keyboard is below the mess piled on this etched glass desk, on another shelf.
  • Annie, my little Chorkie is sitting on my feet. I can see her through the glass so hope  you don't mind that she gets into the picture too.

I don't keep a picture of Willow/Jenna on my desk if you might have wondered it was missing, as I prefer to keep her in my mind always.

Gee why not?  I can't sleep anyway with a dog sitting on my feet snoring like a loud truck.  

I would have nightmares in Karen's room, I swear I would! That mobile would do me in for sure!

Karen wrote: (And why do I wanna call you Maggie May?)

I'm kind of laughing at myself too...cause with all my "stuff"--now I want a "crystal fish".

That's just downright inspirational.


Dear Karen thank you ... I wondered who Maggie May was and when I asked Google the first reply was a CD by Rod Stewart who sings this song. Wow, I love Rod Stewart's voice so much, I have several CD's of him, now I will give a look if I can find this specific Maggie ....

Yes, I agree the crystal fish is inspirational. I would gladly find one for you and send it ... there is the problem with the percentage of lead in it, which the metal detectors are looking for to block it. But there must be a solution to this.

See ya later, all.
Great contributions here, really a fun play.

Love and hugs.
Funny how I am aware of all the things on my desk here in the office today!!! I just discovered a small Mexican Thinker ... or is he sleeping ... ah yes he must be in siesta!
Going to have lunch now.
Later I will join you Roniece for the glass of champagne ... later later ...

Hope you got the photo, serenity. I think I sent a copy of that when we first moved into the house. Things have changed a little; I need to send a new photo!

I didn't get no photos.

And oh Margherita, I'm so stuffed with stuff, and although I'd love a crystal fish, I think a poem or a pic would have to do for now.

'Cause um, I have another confession to make.

I have three (3) desks...and don't ask me what's on the other two, because there's so much stuff on them that'd you can't even tell I have three nod (3) desks.

One is covered in CD's and I really did start to organize those, but then I ended up ripping some, and that explains the Glenn Miller yesterday afternoon.

And about that tea? I'm drinking Starbucks today. (Guess whose son is working there now.)

He gets to bring home a lb. a week, and he brought me the Komodo Dragon blend. *chuckle*

He told me it smelled of urine, and I didn't believe him until I ground the stuff up, and this afternoon I commented to him that he was right.

"How's it taste?" he asked me.

"Well," I paused for comedic timing, "It's got a little wang to it!"

(awwwwwww shush folks, I stole that line from some movie.)

My son had never heard it before though, but by the look on his face, he'll be stealing that line too.



OH.

I actually looked in this desk drawer too.

Wow. I've got office supplies in there!

gleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

It actually smells like the first day of school in there!
