I would like to share mine... Apr 1, 2009

...but where the heck is the b***y camera!!!??? At least I know that the cat took the USB cable to the garden.

Just joking folks. I don't have a cat, and I reckon my MUPPIT* index is very normal indeed!

WOOWOWOWOW! Apr 1, 2009

NOW I feel much better. I thought that sharing my table with a laptop, an obsolete computer (including monitor) and two full size monitors working in parallel was too much...

But I must be a better shape than others because I STILL can locate where my *** post-it block IS !!

Wow Apr 1, 2009

The first prize winner looks quite hard to top... I can't even find the pizza on the picture.
Thanks a lot for sharing, Claudia!

Ha ha Apr 1, 2009

This is not even a " creative chaos", this is just chaos.

And there is no way I could sort out my thoughts in such a room.

A Feng-Shui expert would have a fit after having seen this.

Such a relief! Apr 1, 2009

Thank you Claudia!

After seen those pictures, my workplace place look almost "minimalist"... No need to tidy up for at least another week...

messy? Apr 1, 2009

I agree that the first few prize-winners are beyond the pale, but if this is supposed to be messy, I'm the Queen of England:

Mine is probably a little worse than this one:

I shouldn't have seen the pictures... Apr 1, 2009

... now my desk will have to wait a few more weeks for tidying up!

I'm joking. But I feel much better now that I saw these pictures. After all my desk is not that messy, just a few papers out of the folders, piled at random.

Thanks, Claudia.

Oh, come on! Apr 1, 2009

Please, stop being so hard on those people! We all know they can locate the bloody Post-It block precisely because of the way their offices are configured. If those offices were more orderly, they would take much longer to find their stuff. And taking a long time to find stuff is anything but creative.

I know exactly where my Post-It block is. I just have to lift that big pile of paper and shake it...

Takes me back to uni... Apr 1, 2009

...when on one occasion I could not find my full-size Oxford dictionary for two weeks (it was on my desk the whole time!).

Some of those photos look amazingly like my dad's office.

ViktoriaG: I thought I was the only person who subscribed to that theory.

Parrot: Been there, done that - many times!
