I got tagged! Me! Who has studiously avoided all contact with the civilised world, who has carefully skated around viral link campaigns, and skipped over get-linked-quick schemes. What do I do … what do I do?? I guess the time of reckoning has arrived. Forest Parks was brave enough to tag me with the What’s on your desktop? meme. So, it would seem the game is up, and now I shall have to share with the world the shameful reason why I have been so anti-social and so removed from the buzz of the blogosphere (this is besides writing some of the longest posts, which no one could be bothered to read šŸ˜› ). The fact is:

I have the MOST boring desktop™ in the Known Universe!!!

Most Boring Desktop in the Known Universe

There! The truth is now known and it cannot be taken back. It’s quite a relief really … living all these years in isolation, and hiding in the shadows for fear of ridicule and social persecution have been tiring. Now I can breath the free air and walk amongst the trees and the birds. I can finally live a normal life, get a job, buy a car, eat junk food, and make fun of people with funny accents, because a huge burden has now been lifted from my heart, and I am the happier for it.

I am free.

[TAG STARTS HERE]

My Desktop Free View Instruction:

A. Upon receiving this tag, immediately perform a screen capture of your desktop. It is best that no icons be deleted before the screen capture so as to add to the element of fun.

You can do a screen capture by: [1] Going to your desktop and pressing the Print Scrn key (located on the right side of the F12 key). [2] Open a graphics program (like Picture Manager, Paint, or Photoshop) and do a Paste (CTRL + V). [3] If you wish, you can “edit” the image, before saving it.

For MAC users: Press [ Apple] [ Ctrl ] [ Shift ] and [ 3 ]

B. Post the picture in your blog. You can also give a short explanation on the look of your desktop just below it if you want. You can explain why you preferred such look or why is it full of icons. Things like that.

C. Tag five of your friends and ask them to give you a Free View of their desktop as well.

D. Add your name to this list of Free Viewers with a link pointing directly to your Desktop Free View post to promote it to succeeding participants.

[TAG ENDS HERE]

I pass on the tagedelic coolness to:
Vishal — because nepotism is a good thing.
Jon Anderson — because he owns a cool toaster.
Jimbo — because he paid me.
Julie Anne Bonner — because she can’t possible be too busy for this šŸ˜‰ .
Rebecca Dean — because I came across her interesting blog yesterday and thought, “Why not?”

    1. Aww shucks! It was nothing … and as you can see in the screenshot, I mean that literally, it really was nothing.

      I’m not aversed to the odd meme once in while, I just like to make sure it feels like it will fit in well here before I go for it. Would hate to become one of those blogs that have one linking scheme after another and little else …

      But that’s the logical explanation. The real reason I got into blogging and have decided to play the low-key-and-silent-but-intense-intelligent type is for the women. Yes, like all sane bloggers I’m doing it for the ladies. This is my second strategy for success in that arena. My first try was to try to learn the drums and become a moody drummer in a rock band, with unkept hair. Unfortunately I didn’t pick up any intelligent women that way … shame really.

      So now it’s into blogging and seeming deep and intelligent and sensitive. All this is very hard work, being the shallow person that I really am (I did try to become a moody drummer, after all), but I must persevere …

      Eventually, though, I am going to get desperate. If this sophistication charade doesn’t produce any results I’m going to have to play dirty and resort to posting sappy love poetry about pain and suffering and/or post cute photographs of kittens twice a day. It’s a last resort, but at least its a sure thing.

      HOLD ON!
      What is this I hear about your desktop having been 50% gray until a little before the meme hit? I smell insider blogging! I protest most vehemently!! You SIR, are not a gentleman!!

      Thankfully, neither am I. Thanks for the tag, and for dropping by. šŸ˜‰

    1. You’re welcome, and thanks for answering the call so swiftly.

      Now as far as “desk tops” are concerned, as in the real live physical ones, let’s not even go there. After all we both have a reputations as fine upstanding citizens of the online community to uphold … the stories I could tell … and if you think your desk top is bad I shall not trouble you with the arrangents of everyday objects in my bedroom at the moment!

      Now before this turns into a “my mess is bigger that yours” contest between two *cough* mature adults, I’ll stop. šŸ™‚
