    Hmmm. That somehow rings a bell. Even if I'm not a grammar- or spelling Nazi.

    But then isn't that one out of order at the moment? Feel free to chime in...:p

    A dalek?
    How big is your desk?

    Your home office in your tardis?



    Because the question “what’s on your desk?” Was asked, I’ve just paid attention to what is actually on here.

    Need to “Get big bin”
    It’s disgusting!!

    A very respectable mechanical gaming keyboard, a decent Corsair MMO gaming mouse, a sh**y mouse mat, my hands and wrists used for typing and moving the mouse, a reasonable 22" 1920x1080 LCD monitor, 2 fairly naff PC speakers and a separate volume control that is positioned so I don't have to reach more than 5 centimetres from my mouse to control it, various cables, a cheap pen, a small rock salt crystal lamp, an extremely sh**y mobile phone that cost around £10 about 2 years ago, a cordless BT digital landline phone in a charging dock (that uses a Virgin land line), an LG TV remote control (For my 42" LG TV that I can watch from my PC chair too because I'm a lazy git lol), a Virgin Tivo remote control, a half full 30g tobacco pouch (yes I know, don't start lol!), a disposable lighter, some thyroid medication tablets, an empty Twirl chocolate bar packet, various paperwork (most of which is now rubbish if I could be arsed to sort through it), some dust (90% dead human skin), a few cat hairs, dust mites, dust mite eggs and of course we just couldn't forget dust mite poop lol! Oh, one more thing I did forget, that's air, it is effectively on my desk and don't say it's not important because where would we be without it? (I think everyone else's desk must be in a vacuum, because I'm the only one to mention it?)

    Note: My PC itself is actually to the side of my desk, not on it so it doesn't really count, on top of this is an official PS4 controller (mainly for Playstation Now games) and an unofficial Xbox 360 controller for Windows. I have an ash tray too complete with discarded fag butts, but this is on top of a storage heater to the right side of my computer chair.

    An extra close up photo I took earlier of my desk:

    [​IMG]

    PS: I've removed the empty chocolate bar packet now my attention has been drawn to it.

    what I would like is a tiny Pandorica that opens and closes to make my house even more unbearably full.

    6) On that glass coaster... Quite often a mug of coffee or a cup of water...

    7) My smart phone

    No desk at home I just type on my tablet. Sitting on the sofa or in bed. At work my office turns into a counselling room at night so I can't leave much although I do have two plants and two tin watering cans and I think I left a toy dog sitting there too when I left for the holiday he's one I use as a training aide. There's a cabinet I can stash what might otherwise be desk top stuff in it currently holds
    jaffa cakes
    crisps
    snack pots
    my laptop
    Coffee pot
    Cups
    Coffee
    Tea bags
    Notes on loose sheets
    Post it's
    Pen's
    Some files
    Some tinned food

    Power switch box
    Monitor
    Satellite speakers (subwoofer on floor)
    Computer tower
    Overloaded CD rack of music I'm currently practicing to
    Cell phone
    House phone
    A few dial up modems, one in use to connect to this forum
    A few bottles of OTC meds
    Roll of TP for my nose
    Tweezers for pulling hairs that bug me
    Bag of mints for my belly
    A beanie baby bear that says "#1 dad" been sitting atop my computer tower for probably 8 years
    Bottle of Powerade

    That's just what's ON my desk. Below is the computer keyboard and an Edenpure heater. To the left are my music keyboards and bass amp below. To the right are more stacks of CDs, headphones, and various wiring tools and parts that I use often. Behind me is some books, important papers, and more CDs. (Yes I have a ton of music, with resale shops selling CDs sometimes for 50c, I can own more music now than I could have at any point in my past.) And 4 bass guitars. My little space in the corner of the unheated concrete basement, next to the water heater, boiler, and pump. Nobody bothers me down here.

    Oops, I guess I didn't use the right wording on my list...

    I mean that I have Funko pops of the Tardis, Dalek, and Doctor. Funko pops are toy figurines. Not full size. Although, that would be amazing, lol.

    Yes, that would be so cool! :D

    Can we write about items we would have on a desk if we did use a desk, hypothetically speaking? Because in that case, my desk would probably have a page-a-day calendar, my purple and green water bottle that has a picture of Oh from the Dreamworks movie Home on it, some stim toys (like my Tangle, my fidget pad, and my favorite tumbled rocks), my drawing notebook and a pen, my laptop, some small plastic toys and my favorite Tsum Tsum plushies. :D

    My desk would have the surround sound audio system (obviously not the speakers which need to be placed around the room) which I can't afford to buy right now or in the near future.

    Don't have a desk, or more to the point, the desk is being used for my husband's untidy pile of paperwork.

    We have an old rickety table and at other end is our laptops. My part, has my mouse on one side and a drinks mat on the other side. I also have a some ear plugs.

    Happen to be a tidy person.
