Five things on your computer desk –

There’s a neat little challenge created by &AbbyG and seen by me on the pages of paigea in which writers are encouraged to describe five objects from their computer tables. I’ll avoid the obvious computer, mouse and mouse pad.

1/. Alarm-Clock radio – My computer table is in my bedroom, and my computer desk very heavily cluttered. Beside my computer, the main item is my radio alarm, which has stayed with me for over twenty years.

2/. CD’s – racks built in to my desk intended for CD-ROMs are populated by some of my most played music CD’s.

3/. Headphones – A set of headphones for use with my computer and also for my radio broadcasts, lives on my computer desk between assignments.

4/. Books – current reads and reference books clutter my desk.

5/. Flash drives – I have several, which are all kept on my desk for ease of access too.

What’s on your computer desk?

Oh shoot, I'd forgotten all about this challenge! I just cleaned off my computer desk within the last few days, so as long as it lasts, there's actually nothing there but my computer and mouse.

Ironically, I have lots of PAPER on my computer desk--stacks of bills, receipts, notebooks, mail, etc.

Computer table? Whassat? I type on a laptop, on my lap (never!) sitting in my rocking chair in the front room.

my computer desk is really bare, just a laptop, a mouse and a led monitor because my laptop screen burnt out. I can't find 5 things.

My computer desk tends to be my lap! Though I do have my laptop on my coffee table at the moment with a cup of coffee, charcoal pencils, mobile phone, television remote and sketch pad
