What's On Your Desktop?

Being the Genie Princess is no small feat! I've been busy making my rounds all over the world, welcoming new passengers to the Magical Flying Carpet, helping them get their post right and simply making new friends. I bet the Genie King must be exhausted too from all the flying around he's been doing with me!

Anyway, one of my new friends that I recently made acquaintance through the Magic Carpet Ride is
Lady Java. She too happens to have some adorable cats of her own and we became friends when we discovered that we share the common love for these fun & fluffy creatures. Lady Java has tagged me on a very easy and interesting tag and it's called "What's On Your Desktop".

Here's a screenshot of my desktop background. I have a lot of icons at the moment since I just started playing several new PC Games so they're all over the place. And I have several documents on the desktop as sometimes I'm in a hurry and just want to save the files immediately instead of going through the different folders they belong to! I do try to maintain a neat desktop but this screenshot seems to say otherwise huh? ;)

As you can see, this is a fairly simple meme to do right? So, all those that I'm about to tag should have no problems putting it up immediately like yours truly. But before I disclose my picks for this meme, here are the rules:

My Desktop Free View Instruction:

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). If you wish, you can “edit” the image, before saving it.
  3. 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.
  4. Tag five of your friends and ask them to give you a Free View of their desktop as well.
  5. 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
Now, let me take a peek at your desktop background! When you're done with this meme, don't forget to leave a comment on this post so I'd know to add you to my list here.

Bobby Revell September 25, 2007 3:23 PM

Do I really have to show all the highly illegal content of my desktop?
HA ha ha ha...Ok, this is the third time I've been tagged on this one (yay!)so I will reveal what Revell has on his top secret desktop:)
Thanks Marzie:):):)

Mariuca September 25, 2007 3:36 PM

Hola Bobby! Again you are my first commenter! :)

Well you know what they say, third time's the charm, so YES, out with it now! Let's see what Revellian stores on his desktop! :):):)


LadyJava September 25, 2007 3:47 PM


Yes, we love cats. Can't enough of them..hehe..

I've added your name to your list already ok.. :-)


Bobby Revell September 25, 2007 3:56 PM

He he he,LOL! Can I clean up a little first, or should I show how it really is? BTW, I think I see firefox tabs open on your navigation bar! Very cool! In Tools, addons, add new extensions you can find the stumble toolbar, and sparky the alexa toolbar. Sparky took my Alexa rating from 350,000 or so down to 139,000 in no time! If you have any problems with firefox, please ask me or the BrownBaron for some help!

Mariuca September 25, 2007 3:58 PM

Meow Lady Java! Love cats but hate to vacuum their fur! :):):)

Thanks for adding me and this was such an easy meme to do!


Mariuca September 25, 2007 4:03 PM

Bobby, of course you can't clean up ur desktop first, that's a no no LOL!

Yes, your eyes are not deceiving you, that is indeed Firefox u see! :) Oh what a cute name for the Alexa toolbar, Sparky!! I'm sure I'lll be running into some probs with my Firefox, and it's good to know that I can count on 2 great bloggers to help me out, thanks Bobby!


Adrian September 25, 2007 4:26 PM

GP! Thanks for the mention and more importantly thanks for not taggin' me LOL Yeah it's tough work being a genie and flying all over the place picking up riders...btw..I've added a couple too so you can come by and pick em up if you haven't already done so!

Mariuca September 25, 2007 4:34 PM

Ha ha ha GK, this meme is actually very easy mah! But I guess the GK has other more important things to do like flying around than to stay in front of the PC and work on memes huh? LOL! I've added the latest ones from ur list, but I'll come by again to check it out! :):):)

J@n!ce September 25, 2007 4:46 PM

Marzie, I happened to read this meme over at someones yesterday & thought it was just too easy can someone please tag me??? So glad to have my good buddy here to give me a chance now. Thanks, dear :):)

Janice Ng

Mariuca September 25, 2007 4:53 PM

Yay! Good thing I tagged u then Jan! He he he... faster do urs so I can add u to my list! :):):)


Anonymous,  September 25, 2007 5:18 PM

Do you believe in coincidences? No? Well, I do! Last night I was just going over this desktop meme thingy with my wife and said, 'I'm sure I'm going to get tagged' and what do you know, I got tagged ... LOL! Maybe I should just keep my motormouth quiet from now on ... hehehe ...

Looks simple enough, so I'll get it up soon with no modifications whatsoever to my desktop image. You'll get the image as it is ... Don't laugh too much at it, k? LOL!

Spiff thanks you for the tag.

Mariuca September 25, 2007 5:25 PM

Hola Spiff! Of course I believe in coincidences! He he, I know Spiff will do this one asap since he isn't as lazy as his other friend "the laziest blogger" LOL!

And yeah, it's too darn easy for words, so you'll be able to get it out in 10 minutes perhaps? Have fun Spiff!

Bobby Revell September 25, 2007 5:44 PM

Maybe you know this, maybe you dont so I'll tell you just in case. In firefox, when you open for example 2-3 blogs, right click on the url and open in tabs. You don't have to open multiple windows:)

There's your Bobby tip of the day! Marzie puts the "fox" in firefox:)LOL!

The Lone Beader® September 25, 2007 5:47 PM

I did this one, too! Fun.

Mariuca September 25, 2007 5:50 PM

Hi Bobby, but in IE you can also open the windows in tabs right? Anyway, the same shutting down problem occured again today so it looks like I do have to do a complete reformat regardless of whether I've installed Firefox or not :(
Just waiting for the right time.

Mariuca September 25, 2007 5:55 PM

Hola Lone Beader! yeah, I checked out ur desktop, pretty cool! Thanks for dropping by. :):):)
