Well, I didn’t know what I was getting myself into when I thought “oh, I’ll participate in National Clean Off Your Desk Day!”  Ay caramba.  I really meant it as motivation to clean off my desk at work, which usually serves as a catch-all for anything my boss doesn’t want to deal with.  This is what I encountered this morning when I got to the office:

National Clean Off Your Desk Day — 8 Comments

  1. I didn’t tackle my real desk this year for Clean Off your Desk Day, I went for a small desk in the kitchen where our phone is. Found a 50 dollar gift card to Cheesecake Factory! Is that a great reward or what?!
