that sounds far too clean for a used desk... you can probably still see
the matieral which the desk is made of, shame on you
The cans should be on their side extra points for stickiness
The random docs should not be stapled together & should have misc notes
scribbled on the back of them. cause it happened to be the closest paper
to hand at the time, and of course the order of the sheets has to be
wrong etc etc ...
Use the Snot Rags (kleenex) & just droop em somewhere, preferably in
full view (of others)
The O'Reilly boks are of course strewen over the desk with
post-its(tm)/bookmarks sticking out from occasional places
The laptop is fine as they tend to be tidy devices but the carrying
cases which they come in are a different story altogether.. misc pits of
paper, cabling and assorted media provide ample means to make a desk
look lived at :)

Chain them to your trousers .... works a treat if you're the absent
minded type who also happens to drive a car which doesn't have central
Swiss Army knife + wallet + chequebook + phone (and keys) in my case.
