a wee bit of Irish-Catholic guilt for a Monday morning...(a.k.a. a tour of my office)

The joy of being brought up as an Irish-Catholic gal in the Midwest is that no matter how much your life or beliefs shift dramatically over time, you still feel guilty about pretty much everything.

Heck, I think I'm feeling guilty about neglecting this blog :)

Admittedly, if I'm not blogging here, it's because I'm posting something on the blossombones blog.

And then there's MySpace, my most neglected internet baby--I'll post something there, too, if I get the chance...

Here's what else is on my mind today:

Yeah, I know. I should clean up that work space a bit. But an empty desk is a sign of a dull life, I suppose. (Or perhaps just indicative of a tidier personality than my own.) I am fascinated with what's on other people's desks. So anyway, here's a glimpse of mine...

*Lots of particular genre: some poetry, fiction, non-fiction, computer manuals, etc...

*The ever-present bottle of Ice Mountain water. (And lest you think me terribly untidy, do note it's sitting on a coaster!)

*My lil' feng-shui dragon, who occupies what I think may be the NE corner of my desk. I'm not sure if that's the right place for him, though. I'll have to dig out one of my Feng Shui books and check on that. (Great. Now I've got something else to worry about!)

*A Swingline stapler (I know, I know. It's not red, like the one in Office Space. Nevertheless, an excellent device.)

*My Mac. I love my Mac.

*Other stuff: the ubiquitous paper, pens and pencils, stamps, envelopes, magazines, my journals, cell phone, tarot deck, and of course, a desk dictionary, so I do not embarrass myself by misspelling common words (not often, at least).

**Speaking of needing to reorganize, I may want to consider the current state of my bookshelves. Yikes.

You know what they say: only dull women have immaculate homes (or offices).

p.s. I want those shelves.

I must agree, I always find messy people a tad more interesting than the neatniks...

And I kinda dig my shelves, too! (That little alcove used to be a closet...but I always say books take precedence over such trifles as clothes and shoes!)
