Desktop Meme Tag

I’ve been tagged by Shawn. kinda, I’m an “alternate.” But hey, I like playing blog tag so here goes:

My desktop (click for full size):

Desktop

Notes:

  1. Win XP – boo.
  2. I let my wife have 3 desktop icons. She chose to have quick access to: Budget, School (she homeschools our daughter), and “Sell our house” (she supports the worship pastor vision).
  3. Paint Shop Pro version 7 is what I use primarily for graphics editing. (I miss working with better software, but it’s good for quick and dirty editing. It made that screen capture right there.) Other quick launch icons = Firefox, Plam (being phased out for Google calendar) , Picasa, Word (being phased out for Google docs), and of course the iTunes.
  4. My wife took this photo. The desktop version is 100% unphotoshopped. She has the skills. Looking at it gets me fired up to be a worship pastor.

As an alternate I’m making this post from the bench so can’t really tag anyone else. We’ll have to try playing backwards. Leave a comment letting me you know that you’d like to be tagged and I’ll edit this post to link to your site:

    you like staring at your butt all day… huh. (or maybe your wifey does?)

    Yep, he likes looking at his own butt all day

    …and, okay, so do I

    …especially in those jeans.

    BTW, I like how you cleaned up the desktop before you took its picture. Look-a nice, very nice.

    Just curious, are you booing WinXP because:

    1. You would rather be on Linux

    2. You would rather be on Mac OS X

    3. You’re one of the 3 people in the world who hearts Vista

    4. Microsoft

    Or something else? I would answer my own question as a 20/60/20 split of 1/2/4 (how’s that for complicated), although XP is the first Windows OS that has been “reasonably acceptable” in my mind.

    Alex and Sarah,
    When you got it flaunt it!

    Although, my computer is ancient. If I was running Vista by default I’d have a faster machine.

    Hey, so I found you through lo-fi-tribe, first I’d like to say you have just been added to my feeds, I like the blog.

    Second That is a really cool wallpaper you got there. And I like the fact you have it so clean, most people, when they have a PC, clutter it with all their junk. It’s a breath of fresh air 🙂

    Nick,
    Yeah clean and simple is my preferred modus operandi. A lot of clutter on your desktop (virtual or in real life) just distracts you from the task at hand. I do sometimes use the desktop as a temporary storage place when I want to quickly save something that I’ll later file or delete.

    I think everyone does that though, after a while it drives me nuts though.
