I've Been Tagged!! Desktop Meme

Blue Momma over at Life in the Fish Bowl has tagged me with a meme. Sadly, in keeping with today's nerd theme, this only reinforces what a dork I am.

My challenge today was to take a screen shot of my desktop and post it. Pics of the kids? Nope. Of sexy hubbie? Nuh-uh. I've got the DaVinci background that comes with my computer.

AND I LOVE IT!

There is something so calming and soothing about it. Maybe it is the History major in me, but it makes me smile every time I turn on my laptop. And I love the music that accompanies this theme. I wouldn't normally find a harpsichord something I would choose to listen to on a regular basis, but I do like the sound bytes they have created for this theme.

So, now I need to tag some people. I guess it will be the usual suspects:

Coalminer's Granddaughter
Belladrama
Military Mom
Patois

What's on YOUR screen? And tell us the story behind it!


Totally stolen from Blue Momma--but why reinvent the wheel? Ok, if you're not tagged you can stop reading here. Or you can consider yourself tagged and keep reading for the instructions. I'm putting them here because, well, because they're boring.

And you probably know this stuff anyway. But just in case you don't:

My Desktop Free View Instructions:

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.
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.

Woo hoo! First!

Wow. You show such restraint. I am a desktop wallpaper addict.

But you are right, there is something soothing to your desktop!

I appreciat the tag, but I already succumbed a few weeks ago. My desktop is very, very boring, having gone through an entire system recovery not that long ago.
