coffee spill…

Posted by on 29 Nov 2006 | Tagged as: my life.

so this morning i came in at about 7:15 a.m., and i sat down at my desk. Now, if you haven’t ever seen my desk, you’re one of the lucky…it’s normally pretty messy. piles here and there, but not everywhere. i know where everything is, so it’s not like i’m lost. i remember exactly where i put that paper or this paper–for the most part.

every month or so i give my desk a good straightening up, which normally entails throwing away a load of papers i don’t need any more…

well, this morning i reached up and knocked over my coffee mug. it’s a travel mug with a lid, so it wasn’t a total loss, but still it leaked out pretty good. ruined a pad of paper i had on my desk, as well as several other scrap papers lying around. nothing too serious.

so i was cleaning up all the paper and then i noticed it…there was coffee underneath the glass! there is a hole in the glass for my monitor cables, Firefire cables, USB cables, power cables, etc. to go through to the motherload, my Dell powerhouse which i’ve had for about six months. i’m pretty happy with my Dell, but that is another story, eh?

so, with the coffee lodged between the glass and desk I had a choice: leave it there or clear off half my desk and dry the spill properly. I knew what i had to do…needless to say, my desk is getting a really good cleaning job today! i’m even using Windex to clean the glass, which normally never can get cleaned because it’s covered by my monitors, scanner, DVD/CD duplicator, etc…

Happy Clean Desk to me!
