Or maybe it should be who's desk is messier? :D That is a contest I could win!

Currently on my desk:
Misc. pictures of pets, a snoopy pex dispenser, a fozzie bear pez dispenser, a painting my friend did, my horoscope paper (my sister got me from Egypt), some pictures of the kidlets, a painting of my dog Taz, a sign that says "I live in my own little world, but it's okay, they know me there", a box of kleenex, a can of pizza flavored chips, a poptart, three packs of gum, a bottle of hot sauce, lots of paperwork, a few books for work, a bottle of oatmeal lotion, a Peanuts lunch box, a Star Trek shot glass, a Star Wars watch can, a Star Wars poster, a Star Trek badge, a tribble, a phone, three pens, two highlighters, a tube of lipgloss, and a whole bunch of sticky notes.

Dang.. no wonder I can't ever find anything. :D I should have a desk like Jack.. the onyl thing he has on his desk is paperwork. :shock:

Which desk? I have two and a conference table in my office at work ... all full of stuff ... Picture of my oldest's college graduation, my youngest's high school senior picture, various papers and publications which I am supposed to have already read, a few pens, post it note pad, computer/monitor/printer, phone, Desk reference and dictionary, Clausewitz's "On War", "Jackson's Valley Campaign", "The Seven Military Classics of Ancient China" and a book on the archeology of Custer's Last Stand, a small model of an F-14 Tomcat, various spare parts and pieces of equipment, catalogs, copies of Reference Methods and the copies of the AWMA yearly publication in which my papers have been presented. On my walls I have a plaque with Tony Soprano's picture with 2 .45 shells and a Cohiba that says "I'm the Boss, Don't Forget, a civil war calendar, castle calendar, Star Trek numbered print with a planet exploding, Eagle in flight numbered print, Old West Stage and landscape numbered print, map of the US, reproduction SS Officer's dagger, rapier, display case with my Star Trek miniature from college (combat game based on the series and my first publication on strategy/tactics) and my Radio/CD player ... and other junk.

The desk in my library at home is neat with only a miniature cannon and caisson, pipe rack/pipes, a miniature Gatling gun, lamp, and blotter. My working desk at home is a roll top and has my computer in it and a huge replica of the HMS Victory on top and a ton of papers and stuff in between.

Lord.. we don't even want to go into walls. :shock: Cause then I might have to mention the Star Wars posters and the Star Trek calendar, the various phone lists, and the cd holder (thats going to explode if I buy anymore cds).

Heh.. Star Trek. *sigh*

Wow, I never knew my desk had so much stuff on it. :shock: :?

You're both rank amateurs.

You cannot see the top of my desk, and my computer desk right beside it is about as bad. The desks sit in what in they called the living room, but it isn't used since I also have a family room. So the room has plenty of other stuff piled up around the desk.

And Wayne, just in case you think you have a shot. I'm not married, so I have no one around to tell me to pick things up. :lol: It's tough to compete with a guy that doesn't have that female influence around to keep him in line.

By the way my computer desk is just 6 feet away from the fridge and the chair has wheels.
