My Life As A Desk

28th February 2011

On my desk today, you’ll find: Coffee.  Today’s blend is Columbian Supremo. 2 of 501 pens in the house at any given time. My perfume.  I’m still working on the same bottle I bought two years ago.  I collect perfume.  I either have too much or not enough, considering bottles last two years.
