I'm dismantling my desk at work

I didn't expect it to be sad, but it kind of is! Because I'm going through CDs and finding the first ones I ever reviewed here and it feels like a long time ago. The funny thing is that I remember being not all that happy at the time, and so I'm feeling nostalgia for something I don't remember fondly. Also, perhaps dismantling isn't right word if that suggests some kind of hot allen wrench action. I just mean going through the mountains of crap I collected here. I changed desks three times over the last three years and by the third time I didn't even really set stuff up, I just lived like a desk refugee (though the post-it note that says "please buy a stamp for personal mail" which I found on a piece of mail thoughtfully returned to me, is proudly tacked up on my bulletin board.) What was I saying? Back to the sorting I go!

*streeeeetch..*. Oh, excuse me. I just woke up a few minutes ago. That's the con of staying up late watching Red Eye. But if I had to do it all again..Well, I will get that chance. Anyway, like Harvey Keitel, I enjoyed you last night. You sure looked purty. I thought the "kind" comment was very clever, but disturbing at the sametime cause I knew what it meant. Ahh, the Wonder Years. I thought the show overall was pretty good. I agree with Ted, I like the viewer mail. Well, I'm all over the place right now, and you have work to do. So I'm gonna go back to MuMu Land. I think it's neat you know what an allen wrench is. Very cosmopolitan! I just said that, I don't even know if that's the proper thing to say. If I don't get my 13 hrs, I'm just no good. Stay strong while you handle going through change. We here at the sausage factory support you.

Don't look back Alison!

When I read "dismantling my desk" I thought maybe you were bringing it home with you. Can't imagine it's THAT nice of a desk.

It's amazing how much crap can accumulate over time. I'm not a pack-rat, but I still manage to pile up a lot of stuff I'll never look at or need again. I always think "I just might need that again some day". Yeah - like maybe when I'm 127.

I went through that same thing a year ago...It does kind of suck! I couldn't believe how much crap I had at work!

I really expected you were going to post what a great going away party TONY had for you! If they didn't throw one then shame on them!

Kudos to your Time Travel post AE! That was very clever!
