Stack of copies of the Guardian, next Friday's Private Eye open at  
Street of Shame, copy of the 2007 Zagat restaurant survey of London  
and a fairly terrible software manual. (The Good Beer Guide 2007 is  
about to join them.)

One 1kg bag of sugar, one teaspoon, one half-pint mug of tea, Earl  
Grey, hot.

A stack of file cards in various colours, marker pens and biros.

A devastatingly cute stuffed panda nibbling away on a bit of bamboo.  
("Cute, fat, and always has something in its mouth".)

One telephone. Studio monitor headphones.

For amusement, try to guess what the hell my job is from that lot.
