Desk Tag

So Etain tagged me to pull back the curtain and show you my desktop. In return, I'm passing this along to Charles and Lana, Susan and Kate and Avery. Instructions are on Etain's post!
I've got another post in mind for the setting topic, but today's about the taggage. A'ight, here goes...


Hmm, what've we got here... A bunch of icons that the computer came with and I never use (I couldn't even *start* to tell you what an eManager is), a couple of video games which, though enjoyable, I haven't played in maybe a year and the three icons I use to write: Ywriter 2, Ywriter 3 and Roughdraft.
Down on the bottom, I have Roughdraft open, to type in last night's dip pen fiesta as well as to add any extra bits that come along.
Because this is that one hour int the morning when I loaf around with my 'morning paper', the inbox is open and periodically dings to tell me that yet another straight razor has gone to a happy home other than my own. Next up is Etain's blog, so that I could get the bloody instructions on how to do this and my morning funnies on Yahoo (I was just reading Frazz). Last and least is Trademe, checking some auction or other. (I'm not sure what, and it's closed now.)
The background is one of Windows' generic choices. Because my current novel is set in autumn, but here it's been winter (now shading to spring), I find a little staring down that country lane takes me back to rustling leaves, crisp sunny air and the sharp taste of the year's first apples.
And of course, two French backpackers lying in a shallow grave of river mud, a secret that won't stay buried...

I'll post mine tomorrow. I just have to figure out how to get all the porno off the desktop first. You know, I don't think I even know what my desktop looks like at home as far as backdrop.

The computer remains my nemesis, Steve. I ended up emailing Etain a webcam shot of my screen. I suck when it comes to simple technology. But I have been saying "As Steve Malley would say, Full Throttle & Fuck It" at work about every seventeen minutes.

Thanks for the tag. Etain's instructions didn't work on my Mac, but I have the Architect to whine to when computer things go wrong (the way they always do for me). It's nice to have a personal IT staff.
