10 things on my desk.
I don’t have a desk at home. So, I’ll give you the kotatsu in our family room; which is where I do my blogging such as it is. There are:
* A stack of bills
* A cutting board for the cheese I had for breakfast
* The book Competing in a Service Economy
* A Buffalo external hard drive connected to my wife’s laptop
* Two coasters from “Shiner Bock” when my parents took a trip to Texas - My father loves beer.
* A handy pen with a pull out of all the keyboard shortcuts for Photoshop CS3
* A twister and a bottle cap
* A firewire wire
* My wife’s laptop
* Two music CDs by Yes: “Time and a Word” and “Relayer”
