Now show me yours.  
Here's my desk.  All the magic happens here!  Recording podcasts, reading fic, generally wasting time.... Things of note:  The Wizard of Oz calendar, the well-thumbed thesaurus, and, instead of an inbox, I have a cookbook holder that keeps all of the stuff I'm typing where I can see it.  Lots of other stuff gets jammed in there, as well.  Looky looky what's on the screen!

xposted to desk_pics.

EDIT:  OH.  MY. WORD.  Have just realized that MIL's family reunion is this weekend an I will not be able to get DH til SUNDAY, as will be in Red River, NM.  Does Red River have a bookstore?  Does anyone know?  THIS IS A CRISIS!

I love your wall color... it is sort of the color I want to do one of my rooms...

Very nice. I should post a picture of my desk...

You should! I love snapshots of people's lives...

Mine's not big enough to get messy. There's no room for stacks of anything.

I did that, too. The first one looks like a ski resort, and opens in November. It looks like I'll have to drive to Taos (wherever that is) and get it.

Maybe you could call ahead. "I'm going to be here and I'll need Harry Potter. Can you do this for me, or is the princess gonna have to choke a bit-- er, I mean, should I take my business elsewhere?"

My friend is from that area, I think. She seems pretty edumicated, I bet they got books there.

Oh, your desk is so cute! Mine is much more business-like (unfortunately). :P

That is a crime about the reunion. On the road is a great time to read, but only if hubby is driving. ^_^ I'm sure they have at least one bookstore, maybe even a Wal-Mart.

Unfortunately, Red River is one of those towns that only has one grocery store, because no one actually lives there. It's a ski resort town, and they do other outdoorsy touristy-type things in the off season. Taos (25 mi) is the closest real town. I'm definitely going on Saturday.

You could ask them to postpone the reunion... Failing that, surely, they've got a bookstore... *crosses fingers for you*

I don't see the postponement happening. I just hopw I can make it through Sunday (or Monday) without being spoiled!

Your house is clearly better decorated than mine. Your walls actually have color! And your desk doesn't look like it came from Ikea!

I hope you manage to get a copy of DH. When HBP came out, one of my very good friends was getting married the same day. Luckily for me, she got married in Oakland, so there was no problem finding a copy of the book at midnight, but it was sort of a pain, and it distracted me from the wedding. Though I suppose you might *want* to be distracted from the family reunion. Good luck!

Every room in my house is a different color. (I call it 'living in a box of crayons') This desk was my grandfather's. We have very few things that are new or modern. Most of our stuff is antiques! Or junk shop stuff painted to look 'shabby chic'.

My husband barely tolerates my HP mania... I hope I can slip away for a few hours to get the book!

Ooo. I really like your desk!

Hope you manage to find a copy of DH! *hugs*
