Kids ask the darnedest things.

Damn kids always asking questions! "Why's the sky blue? Are we there yet? How are babies made? Why? Why? Why ? What's on your desk? Why? Why? Why?" Yeesh! At least I can answer one of those questions.

Currently I have the following objects on the only desk I own, my computer desk (In no particular order.):

A glass of Jim Beam.
Two beer cans (one empty, and one with one awallow gone out of it.)
My BF Goodrich Ashtray. (The outside edge is a small tire that uses a glass ashtray as its wheel.)
Two packs of cigarretes.
Four lighters (Three cheap throwaways, and my Zippo)..
Two ballcaps (One Cubbies hat, and one for the University of Tennessee.).
A Microsoft Sidewinder Force Feedback joystick.
A Sony Clie PDA in its charging stand.
A stick of deodorant.
A Bottle of Ronsonol Lighter fluid.
My guitar tuner.
A Toshiba T2150CDS "Satellite Pro" laptop.
An original PALM PDA (Yes, this is the model made just before they were called "PALM Pilot".).
My manual for my Cell phone.
A tin of cinnamon-flavored "Altoids".
A Northern Tool + equipment catalog.
A stack of various games for my PC.
Two bottles of Acetaminophin.
A Mini-MagLite.
My earplugs.
A spare CD-ROM drive for my desktop.
A carton of cigarrettes (With two packs missing).
My safety glasses.
A picture from the Bad Example Family Reunion.
A jar with assorted pens and pencils.
The manual for an MCE "IControl with DC drive".
A couple of check stubs.
A number 2 pencil, ballpoint pen, two Sharpie's, and my wiring screwdriver (normally in my shirt pockets when I'm wearing my work uniform.).
Some nail clippers.
Four remote controls (Stereo/TV, Cable box, VCR, and DVD player.).
A can of Kiwi shoe polish (In brown.).
And an almost empty bottle of Very Old Barton Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey.

I hope this provides you with some insight into the carefree life of a journeyman elevator man. Sarh thought she needed to clean her desk. I think I've got her beat in that department.

Anyone else wanna play?

Haha, I'm not sure I can beat that!

But I find it hilarious how guys MUST HAVE fingernail clippers near by.

No nail clippers here. (Hmm. I wonder if that's why my socks have holes.)
I have no desk, but my wife does.

My "desk" is my kitchen table. Right now it's got Yellow roses, a 3 wick candle (that is now gutted) A cup of coffee and an ashtray.

You own deodorant? :-)

Just the essentials: Laptop, drink and ashtray. One day, I will spill the drink, and bad things will happen. I need to change this arrangement!
