Picture Meme!

The meme in 2 simple steps per person: (created by van_el, stolen from same)
  • For you (the poster):
    1. Take three photos of your desk area as it is, do not stop to tidy up. Inclusion of you at desk in the picture is optional.
    2. Upload the photos onto imageshack, photobucket, flickr, imagehoop, or a similar site and post them and this text to your journal, with an explanation for anything significantly MISSING, if anything.
  • For them (the commentor/friend):
    1. Ask a question about what's in any of the pictures and the poster has to answer it, within reason.
    2. Do this meme yourself!

This is where everyone sees what an utter slob I am! (Please forgive, we all have our faults, right...? *crickets*) Click to see the clutter up close and personal!

Woot! I don't feel so bad about my desk now (it's nearly identical to yours in clutter!)! I love this meme!

Let's see...what's the sort of aqua thing with the white cord in front of the monitor?
Aug. 19th, 2007 01:21 am (UTC)
LOL! It's a picture book of the Backyardigans, with my iPod lying on top... the cord is plugged into the computer from it...

I took these pics with a camera phone so they are a bit blurry... :D

Oh my GOD! Is that truly your desk? Woo hoo! :)

Well, at our convocation address, we had the greatest quote you will appreciate: For those whose desks have never looked like this, they will never know the thrill of finding what they believed to be lost. \o/

Hey, what is the long and thin, pink box under the CD on the right hand side of the middle picture? Is candy, yes? :D What did you have for dinner! I am hungry. Ooh! I see iPod. I just bought an iPod book so that I can conquer the little devil once and for all!!!

Awww, I enlarged the picture...it's a piece of pink paper!

That is a total h4ckrrr's desk Babs, you've got nothing to be ashamed of. Besides, I can't even find room for my laptop on my desk because it's become such a prime dumping ground. (My poor VAIO resides on my bed, chair, or floor, depending on where I was last using it).

I honestly can't find anything missing except for ONE THING. I feel kind of mean asking about it, since I've already admitted I'm just as bad, but it's the truth: whither the waste basket?
Aug. 19th, 2007 01:27 am (UTC)
The wastebasket is under the piles of trash, boxes... to the left of the desk...

The blue thing is a picture book of the Backyardigans.

We RARELY clean up that room. And it's in the basement, so we just close the door, and guests just don't think to go down there.

My mom did a couple weeks ago, and I just shrugged. She knows me by now. :D

I see sunglasses...does it often get too bright in there to see? ;)

No, but seriously. What's that hanging on the wall in the second pic, to the right?
Aug. 19th, 2007 01:36 am (UTC)
Like the book and comb of previous replies, the sunglasses were brought down by Ashlyn for me to "use" and never returned. And only today, actually.

The thing on the wall is a quilted bag bought in Japan, there's also one right above the printer that is cut off in the picture.

I'm just curious here, but is this the Piracy Machine, or the Work Machine?

It would surprise me if this was the Piracy Machine…

Aug. 19th, 2007 01:39 am (UTC)
This is the piracy machine AND the work machine. The laptop I often use to chat with you (and do the infamous Heroes chats with) is upstairs on the dining room table. behind me is the other desktop, at which Ashlyn is currently playing a Land Before Time Kindergarten game. That's officially Todd's computer.
Aug. 19th, 2007 02:15 am (UTC)
Hee! You don't want to see my desk (well, I don't have a desk at home anymore since I gave the kids my desktop and just set up my laptop wherever). It's very, very tidy every since I realized that the only way to keep everyone from dumping stuff all over my desk was to ruthlessly keep stuff off of it! And now everyone's pretty well trained, yayz!

So, what were you eating when you took the shots, anyway?
Aug. 19th, 2007 02:29 am (UTC)
Actually, I would like to see someone's fastidiousness, since a girl can always dream...

I was eating McDonalds - two snack wraps and a cheeseburger, I didn't get to the fries, which are still sitting there. I had a Diet Coke in the cup with a straw, and the three cans of Pepsi Max are from throughout the day, as well as the empty glass, which had iced tea.
Aug. 19th, 2007 03:04 am (UTC)
So whose plate of food is that? And what part of the house it the computer in???

Having a messy place isn't bad you should see my room when I'ts just me in the house...
Aug. 19th, 2007 03:12 am (UTC)
My plate of food. And this is part of the basement. The whole house can get pretty bad at times... But we usually clean up every couple weeks to a manageable level. :)
Aug. 19th, 2007 03:17 am (UTC)
I think my computer desk is worse!
Aug. 19th, 2007 03:27 am (UTC)
I must see... Do this meme, do this meme, do this meme, do this meme, do this meme, do this meme, do this meme, do this meme, do this meme, do this meme, do this meme, do this meme, do this meme, do this meme, do this meme, do this meme...

Do you even have some room left to sit?
Aug. 19th, 2007 11:32 am (UTC)
The chair is completely cleared off, I promise! :D
Aug. 19th, 2007 06:35 pm (UTC)
Could you define a "meme" for me? I've seen you mention it a lot, I fear my lj ignorance is back in full force :)
Aug. 19th, 2007 07:02 pm (UTC)
A meme is an LJ activity where one person posts it, and then the commenters have to continue it by putting it on their own LJs, for their friends' lists to continue.

It spreads through the system, sometimes mutating like a virus. Sometimes a meme I do will be a bit different the next time I see it!

van_el, who is on my f-list, created this himself, so I'm only the second link on this meme-chain.

I'd love for you to do it... ask me a question to answer about my pics, and then you take pictures of your own desk and post them yourself! :D
Aug. 19th, 2007 10:17 pm (UTC)
Are those beer cans or are those some sort of power drink? Given the McDonalds cup behind them, something tells me they AREN'T power drinks. LOL!
Aug. 19th, 2007 10:23 pm (UTC)
Eww. Not beer, I promise. They are Pepsi Max cans, drunk throughout that day.

See, I am very messy. Sign of creativity or dementia? Only the experts could say for sure...
Aug. 20th, 2007 12:17 am (UTC)
I can't tell what kind of computer you have, is that a Dell case?
Aug. 20th, 2007 12:22 am (UTC)
It's a Compaq. It was higher-powered than we expected to get, and it was on sale... I don't really have any brand loyalty when it comes to computers! But I do have TONS of HD space with all the external hard drives (530 GB combined).

What is the colorful box to the left (atop the pile of assorted stuff) contain?

My desk is neat, my room is a mess *g*
Aug. 20th, 2007 10:31 am (UTC)
In which picture? I'm not sure which you mean... I don't think there is a colorful, um, box... There's a quilted bag which is brown and tan, with a picture of a clock/birdhouse (not sure which!) and colored shapes around it. Do you mean that? If so, there's nothing in it, it's attached to the wall as decoration.

If you mean something else, though... sorry my pics were kind of blurry! Camera phones, ya know...

(And welcome to my LJ, *hugs*)

You know, my heart sinks whenever I go to one of my kids' friend's house and it looks just preternaturally perfect and beautiful, like a model home or something. Who has time for that?? Clutter and mess are reassuring to me! Besides, what's the famous line . . . "Bit of a slob, isn't he?" "All great men (women) are!"

My question . . . is that a "Moe's" cup on the floor? I recognize it from the kids' meal. I love that place!
Aug. 20th, 2007 01:08 pm (UTC)
Oh, yes, Peter Parker -- me -- two-of-a-kind. :D

Why, yes, it is a Moe's cup! We don't have one around here, but last Tuesday, we were down in the Cincinnati area visiting cousins, and we ate there on "Kids Eat Free" night. :)
