Maybe I am losing it, but I don't see any of the pictures of offices...

Anyway, this discussion reminds me of the phrase a former colleague used in describing people who worked for state government and didn't have enough to do: "desk dusters."
Moderator note:

You're not losing it. The images from 2002 (when the thread started) are no longer part of the database.

WTF??? A thread that is 6 years old!

My desk seems to progressively accumulate stuff. I think I will come back in tonight and clean.

My desk is usually a bit messy, but no huge piles of stuff I can't even identify. As long as I know what is on my desk, it's okay with me if people think it's a mess.

Usually pretty clean, except for the active files I am working on at the moment.
