I'm sure this is very inspiring for all you little people.
  1. This Kurt Vonnegut finger puppet my daughter gave me a few years ago.
    472f1a8d 7696 4a74 8eae ac27bda7b1e2
    This stays magneted to my screen.
  2. This "Isabel's birthday star" craft thing my other daughter made for me years ago.

    The brilliant star Sirius sometimes seems to flicker different colors, and one night when my girls were small we though it looked red, white, and blue. These are Isabel's "birthday colors" because she was born on July 10 and always associated her birthday with US Independence Day. When Sophia made me a star, she did it in red white and blue in honor of her sister. It's been on my desk(s) for years.
  3. This case of ASU themed sparkling cider we bought for my wife's graduation party that still hasn't happened.

  4. My work badge
    4da3703d 9e65 4237 bad4 6e85c1478fac
    I don't know if it is a violation of policy to photograph my badge but it wouldn't surprise me if it is so here's a picture of the holder.
  5. Hand sanitizer
    0adfc5ff 18dc 40b7 8003 02cb18cfb56e
    Because I'm paranoid when anyone in the house is sick so I sanitize constantly.
  6. Wireless keyboard and mouse.
    32a34f37 990c 4523 a7a4 6c7b6ab91a7b
    Stunning, I know.
  7. Second wireless keyboard and mouse.
    3c0c1d0b 8d9e 4a0f 8884 f9be40c067ed
    Yeah I don't really know why either.
  8. The checkbook I use exclusively to pay the plumber and the lawn guy.
    6a2aab3a 8101 43ca 9b75 9cf82e5b5a4e
    Yes I see the plumber a lot. Old house.
  9. This cute card my daughter gave me.
    2c8731f2 3eb3 4f53 86ee b2b754acc2e2
    I use it as the between-the-checks carbonless copy blocker thing when I pay the plumber and the yard guy.
  10. Fan remote for the fan in here.
    6d41d486 2799 4ba7 97ad 26f967435c0f
  11. Crappy wired headset.
    5f2088ed 055c 4e87 897b fe290840d81b
    I was on a quest to be able to hear better when I call in to meetings. This failed. Turns out the real answer is to not use phones. FaceTime or the fancy video conference system work way better.
  12. Battery charger.
    33d93e4f 6036 400a b62f 0d83be75d445
    For aforementioned mouse and keyboard.
  13. A cat.
    04906329 8b38 4955 9b86 ec6db89b26e5
    She likes it behind my laptop. Maybe it's warm or something.
  14. iPad.
    776a7e88 1476 4cfb af1d ceb1af550ae2
    Was reading yesterday while waiting for computer problems to resolve themselves. Don't normally read at my desk.
  15. My "wallet".
    Bd8dfa89 53f3 445f ad3e f6f43acd3616
    I finally found a wallet I like that isn't too bulky. Also, 10 for 99¢ at Walgreens.
  16. This Apple freebie cleaning cloth.
    982c77b7 857a 481a b3ac bcf759aecd1c
    No idea why I keep this. I never use it. I use cheap camera lens wipes that I buy in big boxes instead.
  17. The things I actually use to clean my Apple devices.
    18b3ed33 3565 4dcf bb7d 1480e83b0331
    $15 for a box of 200.
  18. A pen.
    B708ca2c 6f8e 46a3 a9dd bacae7de5575
    For writing those checks.
