Desktop meme

It seems that I have been tagged by Vindico: this time I must show you my desk. The last time that I did this meme, I was still in Edinburgh, and so I thought it worth revisiting—here it is.


You will note the packets of cigarettes, the large cup of coffee and the empty bottle of wine: that's my diet pretty much covered. I have posted pictures of my two desktop Macs—a Mac Pro and a G4—before, so no surprises there. My MacBook is in the bedroom, where it is acting as my alarm clock (before I lug it into work).

Other than that, there is a scanner, a graphics tablet (off to the left), router and Ethernet switch. You might also note the card with the red sheep on it, which includes a signature and birthday wishes from Mike Scott (whom my brother met at an airport).

Fairly humdrum stff, really. I shan't bother to tag anyone, but feel free to indulge if you want...

UPDATE: Mark Wadsworth points out that it was supposed to be a dual desktop meme. Well, I am afraid that my computer desktop is precisely the same as it was when I did this one last time.
Add to that the fact that I am both vain and proud of a few pieces of my artwork, and it is inevitable that a piece by me should be my desktop image. As it happens, it is a faded version of Last Chapter of Dreaming.


For those of you wondering about the grey borders, rather than minimise all of the windows that I had open, I used Apple's F11 Exposé to zip them to the edge of the screen.

Oh, and for those of you who have ventured this opinion—yes, that chair is very uncomfortable...

That's a shite chair, you left-handed bastard.

My computer chair is fucking awesome. It's huge and comfortable and made of leather. And my computer desk is also well hard.

It's just a pity my keyboard is a biege, covered in plaque and 9 years old - yet somehow I just can't bring myself to get ride of it.

I am a southpaw but trained myself to use the mouse with my right hand so I could scroll/click and take notes at the same time.

Oh dear.
Your nutritional requirements are not optimal, there's an essential food group missing.

It should be Caffein, Nicotine, Alcohol *and* Chocolate.

The back of that chair looks mighty uncomfy. This started off as a 'double desktop' meme, but your screen appears to be off (unless that's some cool Blackle website you're looking at).

The fourth food group is aspirin, isn't it?

I struggle to FIND the keyboard most days.
