WHAT'S ON MY DESK?

Reading my blogs, twitter, e-mail, my mobile phone, stock of magazines in the bathroom and the newspaper every morning has gone from a daily chore to a habitual craving. I get asked some of the strangest questions you could imagine.This question though, was rather interesting. "Martin - Hey Ram, what's on your desk right now?"
  • pile of monitored news clippings- my office laptop. (Let's not forget the spiffy mouse pad with my employer's logo strewn about)
  • My mobile phone indicating that I've just received a text message. Now WHO could that be from...
  • A telephone
  • A plastic water jug from Sea World
  • An office cup full of pens, markers, highlighters and confiscated thumb drives
  • A Chinese box with business cards that I'm too lazy to scan into my address book
  • My man bag
  • My old moleskine
  • a desk calendar
  • photo of me and my sister and friends
  • huge neon plastic clips
  • A blue cardboard container full of folders, envelopes, UPS slips and a rim of bondpaper
  • A number of post-its of pending projects
  • A calculator from my previous boss
  • A stack of notepads (letter size, legal yellow of course)

Alright, you know what's on MY desk. What's on YOUR desk? Speak up!
