  • Logitech USB mouse.

  • A picture of The Child and her friend.

  • A stack of paper fortune tellers.

  • A desk caddy containing three pens, two pencils, a stack of post-its, a stack of bills, postage stamps, and a 2GB SD card.

  • A coiled-up bit of pipe cleaner.

  • A piece of driftwood.

  • A checkbook.

  • A Nintendo DS.

  • Acer LCD computer monitor.

  • Batgirl, Batman, and Captain America.

  • A pinecone.

  • Mac Mini.

  • iPod dock.

  • The mouse for the Macintosh.

  • Two old checkbooks.

  • A blank CD.

  • A piece of pottery that's supposed to go with me to my office.

  • My glasses.

  • A box of tissues.

  • A wedding invitation.

  • A stack of receipts.

  • A renewal form for National Geographic.

  • My cell phone.

  • My iPod.

  • A stack of our tax info.

  • Two copies of TurboTax (they sent 'em to me in the mail; you pay for it online, so it's not like I'm getting charged twice).

  • The following books:

    • Robbins, "HTML & XHTML Pocket Reference"

    • Meyer, "CSS Pocket Reference"

    • Maxwell, "Leadership 101"

    • Arthur, "The First-Time Manager's Guide to Performance Appraisals"

  • The Logitech wireless mouse for the laptop.

It sounds like a lot, but the desk is actually neat and organized.
