Thursday Thirteen 2/7/08

Today is smoke-free day 235, and it's also a Thursday with far too much on my mind, so today I simply present to you my...

Thirteen Things on My Desk at Home

I spend a lot of time at my desk in front of my computer, and it's time to clean up all the clutter...
  1. LCD cleaning solution and rag cleaning cloth from Comp USA - both of which work fabulously on my glasses with that awful no-scratch coating that cost too much and streaks your glasses.
  2. Sample pack of Clorox wipes - because I went through a sampling binge and have all kinds of random samples - Clorox wipes, tampons, shampoo and conditioner, and more, so very much more. Before I quit smoking, Nicoderm or someone like them sent me the clear version of the patch, but without the nicotine replacement stuff, which was useless. Thankfully I found out about Chantix shortly after that...
  3. Santa pin - this one from this post back in, yep, December.
  4. Earrings - just earrings, that I took out one night in front of my computer after a rare day of actually bothering to wear earrings.
  5. Nailpolish - this one is OK because I just did my nails a couple nights ago and couldn't put it away while my nails were wet. I think they are almost dry.
  6. Kitty nail clippers - because whenever they dig their sharp claws into me climbing onto my lap, it's trimming time.
  7. My class ring - because my fingers feel fat lately, and also because I graduated high school back in 1990 but am still living the nightmare.
  8. Yuban can filled with change - I'm planning something really big with that coffee can full of coins, but the debit card usage has kind of made it pointless...
  9. Christmas ribbon barrel, unopened - good intentions.
  10. iPod from Tom - one of the early ones that is big and clunky, but he was sweet enough to give it to me for my walks. Mostly I'm still too paranoid to listen to music while walking, but sometimes.
  11. Stamps - Lady Liberty - no idea how much these are worth because they were during the in between a rate change or two ago. I can't keep up with that stuff. I'm glad they came out with those forever stamps, or whatever stamps.
  12. Deodorant - because I stand in front of my computer while getting dressed every morning and don't want to smell bad. I know of at least one other person who does this.
  13. Thermometer - I didn't ask myself what that's doing there, and neither should you.

  1. I just cleaned off my computer desk and found stuff I couldn't believe was there! I don't know how many times I said, "Oh, THAT'S where I put that!"
    Happy TT!

  2. Hey Maggie,

    I decided to do this too...


  3. It is not the top of my desk that is so bad. It is the inside. I'm scared to look. I can barely pry the drawers open anymore.
    I'm one who leaves my jewelry (earrings) all over the house too.
    Fun Thursday 13!

  4. haha so random! i love it! thanks for making me smile!

  9. re: #13 - some things are better left to the imagination. LOL

    Come by on Saturday, as you'll see pics of my desk for PhotoHunt. You'll probably feel so much better when you get a gander at all my crap!

  10. The worst part is that the stuff on your computer desk makes way more sense than mine. Mine has a still unopened 2007 calendar on it. It's like the layers of sedimentary rock.
