So in the process of whipping this room into shape, I had to empty my desk to replace it with a new one (!).
And it soon became quite apparent to me how long it's been since I've actually looked inside my desk drawers.
Here are a few of the gems I discovered:
Yes, this is exactly what you think it is!! A sheet of really sweet vintage Apple decals. I feel I should have used these on my previous cars (an Audi 100 and then a VW Jetta GLX VR6)...because putting them on a Toyota Corolla just isn't right.
This is the second diary I ever owned (runs from 12-24-93 to 8-24-98), and the level of awesome in this thing is just unreal. I mean FIRST, you have a tampered area where the lock sits because I'd lost the keys one day and needed to bust in, and THEN you have entries such as this:
I am now fully eleven for my birthday was December 22 of last year.
I am not wrapped up in Tyson for there is now Austin St. John and Jason Frank of the Power Rangers. I almost forgot John Bosch of the Power Rangers also...
I had this strange desire one day to give myself a tattoo sleeve, so I bought this pack of temporary tattoos. Not one of my best moments...and of course if I ever follow through I'll need to time it right, because showing up at a professional event with a sleeve of these fading bad boys probably wouldn't be the easiest thing to explain.
My wedding invites and programs!! Not sure why this was particularly exciting aside from the fact that my dessert cards say "Let them eat cake!" and there is a Charles Dickens quote in the program. Tad and I hate Dickens.
Oh, my years in marketing! These colorful catalogues are filled with catchy headlines such as:
Here's lookin' at style!
Color meets clarity.
See things your way.
Styles for the starry-eyed.
It's a wonder I didn't win any awards.
This is an article I wrote for the college newspaper that covers *gasp* tattoos! And whether those with tattoos are going to hell.
I'm not even joking. This is the real deal.
The article made some people mad, including the dude on the right who had a crush on me (I mean he was a blind date my freshman year and what can I say...I'm just really hard to get over).
But things settled down after awhile, and I eventually decided I never ever wanted to be a journalist. I mean what's the point in rattling cages when you can't even take a side?!
Now, where did I put those temporary tattoos again?
