Thursday Thirteen #11



Thirteen Things On My Desk

[This is a sequel to Thirteen Things on my Bulletin Board to prove to you all that I’m really not as organized as you think I am]

1. An empty SOLO plastic cup [for holding small objects so they don’t get lost]
2. Three pennies
3. A torn bank receipt
4. A staple remover
5. The earphones to my MP3 player [but not the MP3 player itself]
6. My biosphere [containing three live brine shrimp]
7. Five packets of flower seeds [they were 5 for $1.00, I couldn’t resist]
8. Half a pack of spearmint gum
9. A crochet basket I made that holds my jump drive and the cable for my digital camera
10. A pottery jar that says VACATION FUND [currently holds $4.00]
11. A sample packet of moisturizer
12. My WIP
13. The miniature Chappa’ai from my broken Stargate SG-1 key chain

I think you made up some of those things so we didn't think you were a neat freak ;)

Is it sad I really want to know what kind of flower seeds? And the thought of live shrimp kinda creeps me out?

Happy Thursday, Jen.

Rhian / Crowwoman said...

how do you make a crocheted basket - i keep picturing uber floppiness.

Anonymous said...

I like the idea of the Vacation fund jar. I think I'll start one of those.

You must have a very neat desk to be able to list this stuff. I look at mine and my list would be one item - junk.

2 Forget-me-nots, 2 marigolds, 1 lavendar. ;)

The shrimp are kinda cute - and the best part is, no maintenance.

Bernadette Gardner and Jennifer Colgan said...

Rhian, the crochet basket is a little floppy, but I used a cotton yarn which is stiffer so it stands up pretty well.

Bernadette Gardner and Jennifer Colgan said...

LOL Grace, I had to sift through papers to FIND the stuff first. Trust me, it's not neat - AND I forgot to list the most prominent item on my desk - DUST.

Gina Ardito said...

Four whole bucks, eh? That's gonna be one heckuva vacation! LOL!

Rhonda Stapleton said...

LOL - nice. I have, like, 4 undiscarded cans of pop on my desk, half full. Nice. :D

Miss Frou Frou said...

I'm with Grace... I could a TT for a year with the accumulated junk on my desk... great list

Tempest Knight said...

All I have in my desk is the computer and all the peripherals (like zip disk, card reader, etc.)

Christine said...

I could use a plastic cup to hold all the little things on my desk. It would really clean it up quite a bit. That and I'd love to get rid of the pile of "stuff" that seems to be growing.

Elle Fredrix said...

You'd best get to work on that vacation fund! Add those three pennies! :o)

Jennifer Elbaum said...

So sad about the key chain :-(

Debbie Mumford said...

Love it!! Of course, I don't have desk ... I write on a laptop on a lap desk in my recliner ... Talk about decadent! *LOL*

Samantha Lucas said...

LOL Great list, but your desk still sound pretty clean and organized to me. :)

Sparky Duck said...

great, that is where I keep my headphones too!

R.G. ALEXANDER said...

You have a Stargate keychain!!? Everyday I know you you get cooler. LOL {but I'm serious} :)

Diana Castilleja said...

I can totally relate. I have a clear path between me and the monitor, but to either side... Watch out! It's dangerous in here! LOL

Robin L. Rotham said...

So how long have you been saving toward that vacation...? :D

Denise Patrick said...

My desk has so much stuff on it, it has branched out to small "personal" tables which are also now filled to overflowing. I'm going to clean it all off when I finish my next set of edits. Really! I really am!

Happy TT!

Michelle said...

#1 made me laugh. That sounds organised to me!!

Bernadette Gardner and Jennifer Colgan said...

Amending the vacation fund to $4.03 which will buy several post cards, hence making people THINK I've been somewhere far away.

Tempest, you're too neat. You've got to rough it up a bit.

RG, I HAD a Stargate Keychain, now I just have the remains.

Denise, I used to have personal tables too. I like to make piles of things and they do tend to branch out until they're all over the place.

gwen said...

I don't have a desk at home..but my workdesk is pretty organized. AND I have an "EASY" button from Staples....so eener neener neener.

Bernadette Gardner and Jennifer Colgan said...

My son has an Easy button - but we had to take the batteries out because it got real annoying after a while. ;) Of course, when you're 9 and Mom cooks and cleans for your, life is pretty darn easy.

Aline de Chevigny said...

OOO where did you get the Chappa eye key chain? I soooo want one LOL
Great List.

Aline

Jennifer McK said...

Um, that actually sounds like stuff that BELONGS on a desk. I could totally do this and it would sound really bizarre.

Great list, Jennifer.

I can't have a biosphere. I'd probably cause Armageddon in it.

Bernadette Gardner and Jennifer Colgan said...

Where did I get the Chappa'ai? Hmm...my husband brought it home from somewhere, not a Stargate convention, though. I may start hunting for another one. If I find a place that has them, I'll let you know.

gabriella hewitt said...

I'm too afraid to check what's buried beneath the piles on my desk. Who knows what I might uncover. Sometimes ignorance really is bliss. :-)

Thanks for stopping by. Happy TT.

Shari said...

My 1st TT was actually on a Friday, and I did the same thing. I wonder what other people have on their desks??

Heather said...

Hey, you could buy a gallon of gas with that vacation fund. Won't get you very far, but still! :D

LOL at Shari's comment -- maybe we should do an RD theme sometime and everyone lists items on their desk that week. Could be interesting! Hehe...

ERiCA said...

#7: We keep thinking of planting seeds, but we can't even keep the potted plants alive for more than a few days. :(

Annalee Blysse said...

I'd like to see the Stargate keychain too. :)
