A borrowed post from Danny over at Werlew.com...
An Arkansas Razorback football. Fake and ex-co-worker name tags. Several nerd books (CSS, HTML, Usability, etc.). Client color palettes. A bad ass Swingline stapler that I swiped from Heath’s desk. Some old trucker-style hat, photos, and toys (slinky, silly putty and yo-yo). Oh, and my collection of water bottle caps (only from bottles I’ve drunk, stacked two high per slat).
My sweet Tenka 24 jacket that I scored in Carthage, MO for $22. A genuine Herman Miller Aeron Chair (minus the lumbar support, for whatever reason). A large window that overlooks Central and Southwest Boulevard (ask about the crazy drunk dude or the bike pimper).
It’s a place where I spend 40+ hours a week. It’s not enclosed, nor does it have solid walls. I can hear my co-workers’ phone conversations or even their stomach growl. I get a bad glare in the morning and by noon all the sunlight I want. But it’s home.
What does your desk look like?
