What's on top of your computer, right now?

Right now, there's a stack of papers on top of my computer. Mostly, ideas that I'm planning to work on, when I can find the time. As if, that's ever going to happen. And, there's a really gross wad of hair that I cleaned out of my hair brush on top of my monitor. For some reason, I didn't bother putting it into the trash. I guess I'll have to do something about it now. So, what's on top of your computer, right now? Have you ever set a glass on top of your computer screen and had it fall over onto your computer? What's the oddest thing you've ever put on top of your computer?

My computer desk - My messy computer desk
Well the top of my computer is pretty messy, but I like it this way, I have all my pictures of my muso friends on different DVD's so I can get to their pics easily but I guess it is not that bad really....

What an interesting and organized looking space! And what an inspiration! I'm glad I can't post a photo myself, because I would feel compelled to do that and it would only be an embarrassment to me. I would just have to say they were 'before and after' shots.

I got a lot of crap on the top of my desk. Nothing really ontop of my PC. Once and I dont know why I did this, but I stuck some gum to the edge of my monitor. LOL I wasnt going to chew it again, but thats where I put it! Maybe I didnt replace the bag in my trash can and I didnt feel like getting up at that moment. *shrugs* I got a can of febreeze, a fan, ash tray, pictures in frames, notebook, sticky notes, paper clips, old broken coffee mug full of pens and pencils, my speakers, clock radio.....I got a pretty big desk. LOL I have a camera, bottle of clear nail polish, lottery tickets, calculator and the remote to the TV. Oh an some Kleenex, Ive been sneezing quite a bit lately! :( Bay Lay Gray xx

The only thing on my computer right now is my speaker. My "new" computer has already broken down and is in for repairs. I have already been without a computer for a few days. Can you say "computer withdrawl?" So I hooked my old computer back up until I get my other one back. I sure miss it.

Nothing. I have two towers under neath my desk with plenty of airflow around them. between the two of them I have three LCD monitors on top of the desk and aside from the hanging file clip velcroed to the top of one of them and the webcam clipped to the top of another nothing fits on top of them.

Nothing, thank goodness and I realized there will never be again when one day some smoke was coming out of those little holes that were seemingly suffocated by the paper I had laying on top of it ! Oh no, nothing ever goes up there and on it again because those are breathing holes, yes they are . . . sharing the light and happy new year, Miss Erica Hidvegi, the Enlightenment_Advisor, B.A. Psych/M.A. Transpersonal Studies- Cnslng/Author, Artist, Photographer, Entrepreneur & Freelance extraordinaire

I don't put anything on top of my computer monitor. But I sure have a lot of junk around my computer, on my desk. One the left hand side of the monitor is my printer. There are two old socks on top of the printer, that I used the other day to dust off my monitor and my TV which is hung up above my computor. In front of the printer I have a bottle of nail polish, three nails files and a pair of clippers. The TV remote and some papers, that I have to check and see why they are there. On the right of my monitor is a stand, again full of papers. Under the stand is a rolodesk with my phone numbers, the internet monitor, and a specaker for the computer. Then I have a side table with the phone and my mouse, a pen and a bunch of papers. In front of my monitor is the keyboard. What a mess I have in front of me. You can see I spend a lot of time at my computer everyday. Oh yeah I also have a glass of coke on my left hand side.

Hi All! This is my ninth post in mylot discussions, and here goes . . . I took a quick look and found out that there's a pile of dust sitting on top of my computer! Not to mention the pile of papers, CDs (used and unused) and what not! It's been a while since I did a major cleaning on this machine, and now I think is the right time to do it (right after I hit my mylot goal of 30 posts a day!) :)

Oh, dear, what a question, ha ha ha. Here it goes (don't panic!) There's a stack of papers, 4 books, some blank CDs and DVDs, my webcam, an envelope with photographs in it, an umbrella, two music CDs... and that's about it. On my computer desk, however, I can see more blank CDs, my cell phone, another book, two pens, the TV remote, the microphone for my PC, a piece of newspaper, and a little notebook... in my defense, I have to say I'm not messy, I'm creative. LOL!

Well the only thing I can place on top of my computer is my webcam 'cause it's actually clipped on the top edge of the LCD... Oh did I forget to mention I'm using a laptop lol hehehe So there's no way I can put anything on top of it.

I don't put anything on top of my computer. Especially now that I use a laptop, but even before, when I had a desktop I didn't put anything on it. I usually have stuff next to the computer, but I like to keep drinks and food well away from the computer if I can help it.

Your computer as in your computer monitor? Well, nothing if I would have my way. Unfortunately there is not enough real estate on my desk. I place my cable modem on top of my monitor. Nothing else takes its place. :P
