What's On Your Desk Wednesday

What's On Your Desk Wednesday is a weekly book blog meme hosted by Sassy Brit of Alternative-Read.Com. Here are the rules, and they are pretty straight-forward.

You can do one of two things or both.

1. Grab a camera and take a photo of your desk. Or anywhere you stack your books/TBR pile. And no tidying! Add this photo to your blog.Tag at least 5 people.

2. List at least 5 BOOKISH things on your desk (Examples are TBR pile or books you haven't shelved...) List at least 5 NON BOOK things. (Like some of the more unusual items on your desk/table?) Tag at least 5 people to do the same.

Once you're done, go to Sassy's blog and post your link. That way people can visit your blog and see the pictures you have posted.

Helen from A Reading Collection tagged me last Wednesday,but I could only do my post this week.I love reading the What's On Your Desk Wednesday posts mostly because it's such a personal thing and I find it nice to attach a desk to a blogger and imagine where they sit when they do all their posts.I just love that!!

So,here we go:
This is the pile of books I just finished reading that I either have to post a review and/or organise alphabetically into my shelves.The Peter Maas one I completed a long time ago but pulled out when someone commented on this book when I did a guest blogger spot at Erotic Horizon.

Do you guys remember the Blogiesta and how I promised to do 10 reviews on old books.Well this is the pile.Please note it has only been reduced by 2 books so a great procrastinator I am.So this pile will stay here until I get this done,maybe in time for the next blogiesta(lol).It's just that I do usually spend a lot of time blogging but as soon as I joined this blogiesta where we had to spend 48 hours blogging I suddenly got very sleepy.I think I have a problem with rules.

Okay,the little brown bag on the left is the one I use to throw in all the names of the people who take part in my giveaway and then I or someone else pulls out the winners.It's been a while though since I used it because my family members started running away when I appeared with my little bag.Shame on them!
The box on the right is a Ben10 puzzle of 100 pieces.I was told by my little one's teacher that they should now at this age be doing 24 piece puzzles effortlessly.Well,I decided (being slightly OCD) that I do not want to be surprised again so we are now doing the 100 piece puzzle(practicing) so we can stay ahead of the pack.It's not going very well as my child decided it would be more fun to chew them instead.Luckily only 2 pieces got chewed so we do this exercise regularly.This is something else that my family members run away from when they see me with it.I am starting to sound like a tyrant,hey!

These are pictures of my little family (the ones who run away)on top of a printer I do not use.Works very well as a little "show" table,though.At this very moment my little one is under my desk hiding because he does not want to eat.We all seem to have a problem with rules.

This is my pile of filing.I did mention "procrastinator" hey?But I have found out that if you put it off for long enough it does go away,in that when I do get around to filing,most of it can be thrown away so this process works for me.Whoever said "do not do tomorrow what you can do today" was not so right in this case.And yes,I did finally submit my taxes so the government is happy with me at least!

And this is my coin counting machine.I have a few vending machines and being a procrastinator only bank my money once a month.I really should do it once a week but I am a blogger so no time.And when once a month comes the coins are really so heavy to carry but I don't let on to anyone as I walk towards the bank.My friends and family say I should change the times that I bank in case I get mugged.Well,let me tell you this.They would have no idea how heavy the bag really is.They would mug me,grab my bag,and collapse right in front of me.

And finally my precious little printer,copier,scanner,and fax machine.Dynamite does come in small packages.

So here are the 5 people I am tagging:(wish I could choose more because there are lots of people who I would love to see if they are really as organised as their wonderful blogs.

Suzanne at Chick With Books(she is going to strangle me because she is so busy with blog tours and catching up on reviews.Come on Quzy,you can do it!)
Kim at Metro Reader
Alaine at Queen Of Happy Endings
Cecile at All I Want And More
Sharon at A Bookworm's Reviews

So this post might appear a bit early for Wednesday but it is Wednesday for me,unless you're in China(which is probably Thursday) but I think it will also be Wednesday for Alaine.Not really sure about these different time zones.
