    What you have around your monitor?

    Some people put Trolls, some have dice, and others have good luck charms or pictures.

    I have ceramic animals of endangered species free inside boxes of Red Rose Tea.

    What you got 'round your monitor?
    Agent Smith was right!: "I hate this place. This zoo. This prison. This reality, whatever you want to call it, I can't stand it any longer. It's the smell! If there is such a thing. I feel saturated by it. I can taste your stink and every time I do, I fear that I've somehow been infected by it."

    1. piles of scratch paper with cryptic notes that surely meant something to me at one time
    2. CDs whose cases have long since gone missing
    3. empty beer cans
    4. empty cigarette packs
    5. overflowing ashtrays

    So much for an aesthetically pleasing computing environment

    A post-it with lots of scribblings.
    A piccy of the fianceť and I.
    A network hub.
    There is also an NBA holographic sticker stuck in one corner of the monitor that was on a NY Knicks baseball cap, and an MSI case badge on the opposite corner.

    Junk, basically.

    On top, a Dogbert, a Siberian Husky and a spider.

    Around, address labels, check deposit slips, assorted "important, you'd better deal with this stuff" papers (about 1' high right now), a Provincetown coffee mug with assorted pens and screwdrivers, an ashtray, a stack of CDs (mp3) and sunscreen.

    The sunscreen is because of a bad incident last summer where I ended up with second degree burns on my ankles, and literally swished when I walked, until I broke down, and went to the doctor's. Never underestimate the power of the light in the Big Room!

    A stuffed penguin (not tux but i think that was the general idea, a gift from my fiancee)
    a glass perpetually filled with water, sitting on a "coastered" CD
    the remotes to my sound card, to my stereo, and to my X10 lights.
    the USB cord to my palm pilot

    Nothing. I don't believe in clutter, and I absolutely don't believe in non-electronic data (aside from my books which are neatly tucked away in bookshelves). I can't remember the last time I actually 'wrote' something on 'paper'.
