How come everyone else's workdesks look so pretty and mine often looks like a 747 went through my studio?
Especially this week.  It kind of looks like an abbatoir. 
I am FINALLY working on my configuration box to honour my mother.  It has been on my desk for MONTHS now and I work around it.  That's just dumb.  So tonight I told myself I could not eat supper until I covered it and sprayed it.
There was a lot of arguing and pouting and stamping of (my) feet, but it got done.
A girl has to eat, eh?

    YOU CANNOT be serious? (McEnroe Style)

    your mothers memorial box looks like something from an abattoir????

    I laughed then thought Oh God that is not appropriate to laugh at this lady's moms memorial, then the 747 image started me laughing again, and again I though Noooo plane crashes are not funny,

    still laughing however inappropriate it may be: thanks,
