For a recent WordPress assignment to write about what is messier in my house. I whole heartedly nominate my computer desk. It is a multi-purpose flat space that allows around 40 percent to my computer, and around 60 percent for every other pierce of work I need to do, or was done but not filed-mailed-scanned-destroyed.
Looking at it now, I still have a broken table light sitting there a replacement. I bought the lamp, thinking I was environmentally conscious. It is a led lamp that apparently draws less power than a regular incandescent one. I had it for 2 weeks when it started flashing. I found this was very disturbing to my work,. I should turf the thing, but I have no place to recycle at my apartment building and to throw it out in the trash would be wrong.
As I further inventoried my desk, I have found bills that need paying. Empty pop bottles, again, waiting to be recycled. For some strange reason I have s candy thermometer beside my non-functioning lamp. Then the necessities; speakers. monitor, keyboard a mouse pad and mouse, head set (broken but fixable), internet router, and various other wires and stuff.
Not quite ready to wrap the thing up in caution tape; but close enough.
