The Eclectic Desktop


Once in a while we all need to take a moment and clean off our PC's desktop. You can do this dreaded task once a month, or you can choose my method: do it when you can no longer see the wallpaper of your kids at your last holiday celebration.

Whichever method you choose, take note --- you will find some odd things. Whether you choose to send these unique items into the recycle bin, an assigned folder, or keep it right where it is -- this is a choice only you can make.

Perhaps you will be surprised to see some odd things hanging on your desktop. I found the following items most recently:

Powerpoint Presentation of "Modern Pirates: How to Quietly Plunder a Nation." (hmmmm)
Car parts list for a Pontiac Bonneville (we don't own one.)

Popular ukulele chords

Homemade wind turbine instructions

An instruction sheet for care of your intact infant son (too much information)

20 top fiber-rich foods for better digestion

And I could go on and on about the bizarre things that my family takes an interest in and decides to save for later or that I am forced to research as part of a one-off freelance project.  Looking back on our many hobbies and information searches, I think we are addicted to learning. I just hope we pass that trait onto our children!

What do YOU have lurking on your desktop?

I'm afraid I'm quite boring in comparison. Mine's pretty empty, though it may indicate underlying paranoia with the numerous spyware/malware/virus programs. :)

I don't know, Angie. I'm a bit jealous. My desktop is atrocious most of the time, but I think that's because my Mozilla FireFox is set to automatically download everything to the desktop (so I can find it.) I'm so disorganized that my attempt to find things has left me with too much clutter!
