Spot Inspection: The image on your computer desktop

Mandisdesktop_lIn my ongoing mission to examine all the ways that our love of pop culture makes imprints on our lives — and to populate PopWatch on a slow news day — I’m issuing a spot inspection of your computer desktop. What image have you selected to stare at when you don’t have six windows open? (For me, that’s approximately 30 seconds a day, so Gale Harold, tiled, should not be at all freaked out by this.)

Your turn.

    Sorry, no pop culture background…just the most awesome picture of my son playing in the sprinkler for the first time. Seriously, this picture could be in a magazine. Hey EW, need any “cute kid” pics?

    Mine is a mock-Absolut Vodka ad, with a Dharma logo on the bottle and the words “ABSOLUT LOST” at the bottom. I love it!

    On my work computer I have a spoof motivational poster about working hard with photos/quotes from Arrested development. When I come in and log in each morning. angry that its so early. I get a little laugh and can settle into my day.

    Mine is David Tennant’s Hamlet promo picture: (hope you guys can see that) I suppose it reminds me of what I will sadly, never see. :(

    The extent of my fangirlness is revealed…my desktop on my work computer is David Cook (which is nice if I need a pick-me-up during the day). My laptop at home is of the Idol Season 7 top 12 at the finale after David Cook won and he was singing and he motioned for all of them to come join him (so sweet!). I never got into Idol until this season, and now I’m too obsessed.

    At work – nothing but the upiquitous windows icon.
    At home? A picture of North America during the August ’03 blackout from space at night.
