    I need to start keeping an extra belt at work. Once in a blue moon I'll forget it.

    Toothbrush and toothpaste are good things to keep.
    And that concludes staff’s presentation...

    bottle of hand sanitizer, bag of peppermints, Tums, aspirin, personal photographs holder, stress ball, two books: "Rush Limbaugh is a Big Fat Idiot", and "The Sayings of Confucius" (haven't read either for at least 7-8 years just never took them home). Two publications: a May 1974 issue of 'Organic Gardening and Farming' and the Autumn 1987 'Naval War College Review' (strange I know, I could explain but I don't think I'll bother). Plaster duck and firehouse on top of desk along with a family photo.

    This is my favorite kind of thread. I could read this all day. Please post more! I know there's more interesting stuff in lots of drawers and I don't want to break into your offices to find it so just keep telling me, and fill my empty, dull day.

    At the moment... nothing. My office is being renovated and the new desk arrives on Friday. Right now I am using a folding table.

    In the box that I emptied my drawer into, I have:
    Scale (2)
    Tape Measure
    Tooth Paste
    Tooth Brush
    Swiss Army Knife
    Letter Opener
    Stapler
    Tape
    USB flash drive
    Gum
    Mints
    Vitamins
    Propane Microtorch
    Digital Camera
    Box of Paper Clips
    Roll of Hockey Tape
    Zip Ties
    Box of Zertec D
    Post-it pads
    If you want different results in your life, you need to do different things than you have done in the past. Change is that simple.

    My first thought before deciding to ignore the double entendre was to post this line from Blazing Saddles:

    Bart: [on grandstand to the townspeople] "Excuse me while I whip this out."

    All I can say is the ladies seem to really love it and keep asking for more.
