  - a 1 foot tall pile of old Courier International
  - old bread in a bag
  - two yogurts past their good before date
  - unmatched socks
  - a broken mobile phone
  - large assortment of various papers such as bank statements
  - misc cables that I don't know the purpose of
  - Buffy integral box
  - old digital camera
  - two empty glasses (aspirin, coffee)
  - alcohol: Gammeldansk, Absinth (empty), Laphroaig (empty),  
Tuzemak, Shoshu, Vulnénaire, Pastis, beer (empty), Chateauneuf-du-Pape
  - empty bottles of water and Orangina
  - 4 empty fag packs
  - postcards: Tunisia, India, Normandy, Spain
  - dead cans of Perrier, Schweppes, Minute Maid
  - tea
  - Rhinadvil
  - the Annotea Protocol specification
  - tissues
  - a cork opener
  - empty wooden box
  - a large candle
  - all manners of writing implements
  - a screwdriver (the tool, not the cocktail)
  - watch
  - mobile phone
  - ashtray
  - Nescafe

The rest of the flat is decorated in a similar fashion. In fact it's  
hard to tell where the desk ends.
