WOYWW--Surprisingly Good!

After you hear me out, you'll realize that is actually a rude title.  But first!  Here is my workdesk before I head out to work for What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday.
The desk before work
It is shockingly clean again because I kept getting long phone calls over the past few days and I tend to fiddle with things on my desk while on the phone. Since I wasn't working on any project, things just ended getting tidied.  Never fear, it won't last long.
Here is the ATC I mentioned last week.  This lovely piece of art is by our own Peggy aplseeds.  I am quite pleased to have this as I find it very soothing.  And soothing is what I need right now.  Today is the first day of school and by the time you read this I will probably already be frazzled, hoarse, and will be convinced that I've talked to at least 8000 of our 10,000 or so students.  Ya know, all in a day's work.
Here's a giggle for you and I mean besides this crazy card that always makes me laugh.  The hubby and I used to enjoy this snack cracker that had the tagline 'Surprisingly good taste!" printed on the box.  Hubby wondered what ad agency came up with that line and why the company thought it was okay to use.
"Hey! I thought this cracker was going to suck, but no! It is surprisingly good!"

The Fine Print: Don't be surprised if I don't visit too many workdesks this time around-apologies in advance!  Dude stamp by Rubber Baby Buggy Bumpers, letters by someone.

I seriously hope the first day back at school wasn't bad enough to warrant you necking down all those bottles!! The Old Geezer card is fantastic :D Love it. Perhaps I could send my husband one of those.. it's our 30th Wedding Anniversary fairly soon!!!

Way too tidy again this week! Love the old guy card, it is just brilliant. I think you need to talk less and drink more for your poor throat - not at work, of course.........Happy WOYWW, Anne x #32

Hope the final pic helped take care of the first day frustrations!

Hope you survived your first day of school. My hubby is a teacher, so I know what the first day is like :)
Peggy sure made a beautiful piece of art, you lucky thing. That card is hilarious and surprisingly good.
Did the crackers look really awful and that's why it was a surprise they tasted good?
Have a great week and rest the voice.

Sorry that work is a bummer. I couldn't work with kids cause they always made me feel so nervous. Love your before and after desk pictures. We could be related. Love a single malt and we buy a lot of Ardbeg and Talisker. Thats an interesting color for Tequila!! Have a great week. Thanks for visiting by blog. Vickie #68

Hope your first day back was better than you thought....at least it's over now!.

The dude in undies is surprisingly eye catching. Your end of the day desk looks inviting and I agree with you any job that involved lots of people contact is very wearing. Probably why I prefer to stick my head in a book when on holidays. Have a great week.

The after work desk looks fun. Can you spare some time to come and tidy my desk too, especially if you leave me the same as you have. Actually my avalanche has retreated a little and I can actually see some desk now, and I found a missing stamp. Have fun on your folding table. xx#102

Hope you have your voice back by now. I always loose mine the first week of school. Occupational hazard I thin k.
Happy belated WOYWW! (the card made me giggle and the ATC is amazing)

Oh my, hon, what are the chances that we'd both lay out the booze bottles on our workdesks on the same day for our WOYWW posts?!! I'm late getting around due to the heavy drin, I mean, due to gardening, but I'm glad I didn't miss this!!

By the time you it, the week will be over and I hope you have a wonderful weekend of fun and relaxing!

Hi Princess,
It's taken me a while to find you but here at last. Tidy desk, and I know how it is putting things in place whilst on the phone. The ATC from Peggy is great, lovely to look at any time, beautifully coloured.

Thanks for leaving a comment for me. You're right about the possums for whom I harbour mixed feelings. The little ring-tails are very sweet but the brush-tails are bad tempered bastards that will even eat the house to get into the roof. But I wouldn't return to the drought years when they fell out of the trees, dead from heat prostration. In Victoria, we lost 80% of the possum population.

Miles of smiles,
Ros. #125
