MEME!

Posted on Wednesday 6 June 2007

I saw this neat little portfolio today and thought it was great idea for a fun meme because it satisfies my curiosity without having to read too much. And besides, our computer is the only way many of us interact with each other, so why not?

The rules are simple, post a screencap of your desktop (bonus points for shots from multiple computers) and a photo of your workspace (again bonus points for multiple workspaces). No cheating by cleaning all the junk off your desk or removing the porn off your desktop.

Alright, here we go. My computers. Cluttered desktops give me hives.

My very messy workspace at home. Apparently, cluttered desks do not give me hives. (Yes, that is my cat, roro and yes, that is a poster of Chairman Mao, syd. Hahaha!)

And then y’all seen this one before but I haven’t been to school in a while so I’m recycling it. (As a bonus, you can see my old desktop if you click on the computer.)

And just to get the ball rolling, I’m tagging everyone who posted a comment here in the past 2 weeks. If I missed you, consider yourself lucky, and then tagged. It will be fun.

    shift+apple+3 saves a screencap on your desktop as a png image file.

    I will get to this, but I am so fucking busy at work that I”m working overtime and I barely have time for anything else until the end of June. You are one of the few blogs that I have been trying to keep up with.

    HA! My camera has been broken ever since Florida in MARCH!!!! And I haven’t replaced it yet, so I’m exempt!!!!! Woo hoo! I never thought I’d be happy my camera went T.U., but I’m just lazy enough that I’m happy about it today. :)

    zoe – Damn, that sucks! Work bites. And I feel quite honored to be part of your blogs to keep up with.

    eclectic – There’s nothing stopping you from posting an image of your desktop, is there? Therefore, you are not exempt. Hit print screen and paste. :)

    dawn – You know…like a jpeg but different? Just upload the freaking image – I know you know how to do that.

    OK, I participated in the desk meme. However, I won’t be leaving that post up for too long (explained on my blog).

    Dude, I can’t make it work. Print Screen does nothing. So I tried Shift/PrintScreen, Cntrl/Print Screen, and Alt/PrintScreen, and that didn’t do anything either. I tried right clicking the desktop itself, nothing. WTF?!?

    Hemlock – Yay! I feel so validated and no one has put the hate on me for my aggressive tagging yet. Yay!

    I’m totally going to do this. I already have my engraving room desktop shot finished. I just have to get the other two computers/work areas, etc.

    It might take me a few days though. I’m a tad overwhelmed right now.

    Not so fast, little lady. I’ve got a draft saved, waiting only for the magic button that will put a copy of my desktop image onto the page. You’re not going to help me?!?!?!?!?!

    suzie – I thought about keeping you off the tag list to give you a break since things are kinda rough over there…. I hope it’s getting better. Let me know if you need anything.

    eclectic – I emailed instructions. See, this is turning out into more than just a tag. It’s a computer lesson too!

    I’m all over it! Just give me a day or too to clear all the copies of “Jugs” off my desk.
