A calendar - one of those 'at-a-glance' calendars that you flip over a day at a time
Three picture frames - one that says 'Daddy's girl' of my daughter in her T-Ball outfit, one of my wife in the woods on our honeymoon, and one of my daughter at the beach which says 'BABY' and has a photo album behind it - in it I keep a chronological set of pictures of her going back to her birth. Proud Daddy!
A 17" computer monitor, speakers, keyboard, mouse and mousepad.
Five paper pads - a regular post-it pad, a 6'x4' lined post-it pad, a stubby square pad of non-stick paper, and a letter size yellow pad where I keep my notes. The fifth one is a promotional paper pad from some staffing agency that came to see me last week.
A letter holder, where I keep my unanswered correspondence.
A Miniature beach chair where I rest my cell phone.
My PDA and docking station, and beside it my PDA leather case.
A stack of business cards waiting to get organized and filed away.
A large wooden case where I keep my personal business cards, and a small display holder where I place them for popular consumption.
A pencil holder where I keep a couple of cheap pens (the ones I don't mind if anyone steals), a staple remover, a highlighter, a sharpie, and a pair of scissors.
A large printing calculator.
A small desktop old-world globe (about the size of a baby's head) with fountain pen holders which have never been used - I keep it around because it looks good.
A stapler, a paperweight, and a correction tape.
An 8" tabletop fan (this is Miami!).
A can of lysol (the bathroom's just down the hall).
A paper clip container, jammed full with jumbo size clips.
An office phone with 29 buttons, plus the dial pad.
A two-level wooden inbox, of which I've never seen the bottom.
The current copy of World Trade magazine - not my prefered reading, but it's appropriate.
A faux-marble coaster with an ever-present can of Diet Coke over it (I don't drink coffee).
Assorted papers scattered about.
A small bottle of clear coat finishing automotive paint - not sure why it's still here, I've just been too lazy to take it home.
A broken down Nextel phone waiting to be repaired, and a busted watch wristband waiting to be replaced.
And that pretty much sums it up. It's unbelievable what a bunch of crap I manage to fit on here.
I don't even want to tell you what I've got in my drawers (my desk drawers, that is)!
