THINGS AT MY DESK AT FRESH AIR

This is where the magic happens.
  1. A pacifier that says "chill, baby"
    a gift from Dave Davies.
  2. Tiny perfume samples
    For covering up the smell of tacos after lunch.
  3. 4 coffee mugs
    Guggenheim mug. Floral mug. A handmade mug by my NPR editor. A mug promo-ing post partum body acceptance that I thought was weird.
  4. A giant exercise ball
    I started the fad in our office. I'm still proud of that, even tho it was pointless and lasted a month.
  5. Frank Lloyd Wright coasters
    Heartland girl.
  6. Sticky notes that say "crap"
    Professional.
  7. A press kit for R. Kelly's 'Trapped in the Closet' DVD release
    With a t-shirt.
  8. Chicago Tribune from the day I was born
    Not sure what to do with it...
  9. A photo of Alexander Payne that has a rousing quote about the future of cinema in a speech bubble.
    With a second bubble by Sam that says "I'm really attracted to hyphenated names."
  10. Two posters from my favorite museum in Paris (the architectural heritage museum)
    Cla$$y
  11. The last few lines of my favorite This American Life story
    For inspiration
  12. A large stack of books I hope to read someday.
    But let's be honest.
