Desktop Meme

I have been tagged by my sweet girl Precious for the desktop Meme. So here it is:Its a picture, well really a composite of a few pics, is taken from the Hubble Telescope called NGC 7293: The Helix Nebula. Its some times referred to as the 'Eye of God' or 'God's Eye' nebula. It reminds mine mombean of a Sci-Fi book she really liked called The Mote in Gods Eye .
Mine mombean is a bit of a geek, can ya tell?

She likes to have her desktop kinda clean, and all of the stuff that she needs to access fast is kinda hidden in folders in the folders across the top. She likes to have things across the top rather than along the left edge 'cos that makes her feel lop-sided and leaning over. One of the folders is a e-book she is reading called "The Authoritarians" and its a Social Psychology book. The Radio Lab file are podcasts from a PBS radio station in New York. Like I said, a geek.

Here are the rules for the meme:

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.Here’s how you can do a screen capture:

1.Go to your desktop and press the Print Scrn key (located on the right side of the F12 key). note: On a laptop you use the Fn + prt sc keys then paste it into a graphics program.

2.Open a graphics program (like Picture Manager, Paint, or Photoshop) and doing a Paste (CTRL + V). If you wish, you can “edit” the image before saving it.

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

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

I think everyone has been tagged for this, so if you haven't joined in this is your tag!

My mom is a geek. My auntie is a geek. Mr. Karate is a geek. So I guess your mom is in good company!


Mom has some space pictures from the Hubble too. She likes them a lot.

I really like that desktop. I like sci-fi too and I loved "The Mote in God's Eye". I think I'm also a geek:) xxx
