The Work Files – Strange Things On My Desk

I’m used to it by now, or at least, I should be. Strange things often wind up on my desk with no explanation, rhyme nor reason.

Personally, I was thinking the one looked rather like an enlarged pattern from old linoleum (circa 1960) and the second was supposed to be a space-traveling anemone. I don’t know. Maybe I’m not “cool” – big deal.

Charming item number three – an unusually low number of strange things to find on my desk, actually – is fairly obvious.

Oh yeah – and that one ornament?
