  • Music:

I was going to post the results of the "What body part of Brian's are you?" quiz here, but when I got to the question that required me to "pick a great Backstreet song," I had to quit.

So instead, here's a list of everything on my desk.

  • Caerwyn's address
  • Cathedral Choral Society rehearsal and performance schedule
  • Cathedral Choral Society singer handbook
  • A Cat's Meow map of Iowa
  • A drinking glass filled with RAM
  • Dry-erase marker (black)
  • Employee handbook
  • An empty manila envelope

  • Empty Styrofoam cup
  • Ganesh finger puppet, purchased in Boston in February
  • Homecoming brochure
  • Instruction manuals for two different software packages I'm evaluating
  • The keyboard with which I typed this list
  • A little brass owl, from a co-worker who recently visited Greece
  • Liquid Paper
  • A Longaberger business card basket
  • A makeshift paper holder made from a metal bookend and a long strip of cardboard
