Well, I mentioned a new desk and linked to pics, which started a general posting of pics, and then PilotBob said it needed it's own thread, and DG told him to start one so he did. And this is it.

As mentioned, my cupboard (it's where I hide everything so people don't know how messy I am).

I think everyone who's been posting photos is impressively tidy

Thanks! We're really pleased with the way it turned out (luck rather than skill I think). It is tidy only because I threw the dirty dishes in the sink before I took the picture.

Ruth -- how did you get a photograph of my cupboard!? Just kidding, I have an equally well organised cupboard with a door that closes, most of the time.

Marc, I still love your workspace, even though I'm seeing it again for a second time, in fact, I think I like even better the second time around.

Pfff! wait 'till I get in N-Y and make you eat so many great meals you'll be paying me to stay!

And, gals, cupboards are made to be stuffed with as much food as possible. It's what makes cooking so fun and creative, so be proud of your overloaded spaces!

My "order" is similarly a control issue, though it's more compensation for internal disorder (not "Disorder", but "disorder") - a practical measure giving the illusion of control (but, then, a large part of my mind wants to stay an eclectic disorder, and would only tolerate being managed into order for a limited, too-constrained, bottled-up period of time before everything broke apart and everything started being thrown around the brain-pan in a happy-mad-sad-rage).

Nah, I, like PilotBob, have a bit of OCD happening. Things aren't as neat as the desk, but they rarely descend into chaos. This hasn't always been the case - at work, my desk swung between a nightmare dive into trash and crap, and crisp neatness. In both cases, I knew where everything was though!

See, now you made me go check. Way to tweak an OCD reference-junky, phenomshel.

You mentioned your desk here, in the Vent and Rant thread:

http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...378#post471378

and I subsequently asked for pictures, which you provided, and then I posted pictures of both of my workspaces in that thread. Then DGMa asked for more pictures of workspaces in the same thread, here:

http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...postcount=3539

and people did so. PilotBob then suggested in that thread a workspace pics thread:

http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...postcount=3634

and Lady Blue suggested he start one:

http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...postcount=3642

However, then DGMA "shamelessly" stole the idea from PilotBob, and started a new thread here:

http://www.mobileread.com/forums/showthread.php?t=47939

which I posted in for the second time.

Now, we got this thread here. Which I've posted in again, for "completeness" (or "obsessiveness" if you wish ).

So, from what I can gather, my memory is somewhat reliable for events, but bloody hopeless for those...thing words....start with "n"...nouns.

It's still missing something in the top right, and I'm not sure what. I have ideas, but they'll change. Oh, and thanks.

You and me both. We should ask pshrynk - see if we can get a bulk discount.

Here's my upstairs desk, where I'm currently sitting:

That might cost me less than the pro-painters quote. Do you do exterior work?

Are we bidding for daffy's painting services?

I'll see your bus ticket, peanut butter sandwiches and first quart . . . and I raise you a Southwest Airline ticket, cheesburger, fries & a shake, and I'll throw in the first gallon.
