Life in the Fish Bowl


Today on the Meme Channel: Desktop Meme

My good buddy and secret twin sister Anglophile Football Fanatic, t.., ok, stop the presses. That name is just waaaay too long. She's now AFF folks. AFF. A wee feisty bitch (her quote!) named AFF.

Anyway, AAF took mercy on me during this time when I can't get my creativity up and running and gave me some bloggy Viagra tagged me for the desktop meme, therefore giving me fodder for another blog post.

What does she want? She wants to see my desktop.

Like my house, my desktop isn't well kept. It needs to be cleaned up, trash needs to be disposed of and unused items need to be put away. Yes, I still have a Christmas picture on my desktop. And no, my child isn't in it! The only time I could have the living room clean enough to take a nice photo was when he was sleeping!

Did I tell you that I love Christmas? It's my favorite time of the year. As soon as I see the wrapping paper in the stores - and when is that now? June? - I get that Christmas tingle! No, I haven't finished my shopping, but yes, I've been started for a while.

So who wants to show me their tatas desktop? Probably no one, but I'm tagging:

Secret Agent Mama
Buddha Girl
Momo Fali
Not Afraid to Use It

Ok, if you're not tagged you can stop reading here. Or you can consider yourself tagged and keep reading for the instructions. I'm putting them here because, well, because they're boring.

And you probably know this stuff anyway. But just in case you don't:

My Desktop Free View Instructions:

A. Upon receiving this tag, immediately perform a screen capture of your desktop. It is best that no icons be deleted before the screen capture so as to add to the element of fun. You can do a screen capture by:

[1] Going to your desktop and pressing the Print Scrn key (located on the right side of the F12 key).

[2] Open a graphics program (like Picture Manager, Paint, or Photoshop) and do a Paste (CTRL + V).

[3] If you wish, you can “edit” the image, before saving it.
B. Post the picture in your blog. You can also give a short explanation on the look of your desktop just below it if you want. You can explain why you preferred such look or why is it full of icons. Things like that.
C. Tag five of your friends and ask them to give you a Free View of their desktop as well.

Dammit to hell! I just posted something. And it's been about a week since my last damn post. I am so SLACK.

I'm not posting twice in one day. I'm too cheap! I'll post my desktop'll likely crack up. My desktop is a total MESS from hell. HG hates looking at it. When I see his, I get the heebie jeebies because it's got like two fucking icons on it. That's it. Loser.

Like you, I LOVE Christmas. Love the tree pic! I'm sending your link to my sister, Kathy. She is a CHRISTMAS FREAK extraordinaire!

I LOVE me some Christmas. What with it being my name, my birthday & all. Glad to help you out.

I love Christmas but hate it when the shops start plugging it so early. They used to wait untill after halloween but not anymore. Not a day goes by without Mollie anouncing yet another thing she wants for Christmas.

We are all about Christmas in our house. Well, I am. But I live with the Grinch himself. Your picture looks very show homeish. And there I was thinking we were sort of similar! My desktop is James Blunt, which I'd show you if I'd been tagged. But I wasn't. Sigh.

Nice desktop picture. I too have a great picture on my desktop, but I also have a screen full of items covering the fabulous picture of my 2 1/2 year-old soccer playing granddaughter.

Coool meme. But I'm going to pretend I didn't see it yet because it's too late at night and hubby wants me to go to bed now. I'll have to come back. Read the instructions. LOL.

I'm glad you have a Christmas picture up!

Mary Stebbins Taitt said...

I just looked at my desktop and there is no picture (just black) and a zillion icons. Something is wrong with the desktop utility and it won't display my pictures. BUT, I have another computer downstairs. I'll use that one. Tomorrow or Monday.

Love being tagged.

(tatas coming in email, stay tuned)

angel said...

this is cool- i'm going to tag myself if you don't mind...

Jo Beaufoix said...

Hmmmm, I don't have paintshop or any of that yet. I want it, but we are pretty brassic at the moment, but, I have a plan. I will take a real live photo of our screen and see how that turns out.
Keep your fingers crossed for me.

Oh and Christmas, I am so excited. Can't wait this year as Miss M turns 3 a month after and will 'get it' this year.

Mary Stebbins Taitt said...

OK, I did it on No Polar Coordinates. I know you didn't tag me, but sounded like fun.

Lol You are going to think that I changed my desktop just to amuse you, but that is not the case. I really am this much of a dork. :)
