scavenger hunt!!!

The following are pictures of my desk at work -- mostly taken because of my new flat-panel monitor, which is very cool.

I thought it might be fun to do a little scavenger hunt, based on items on and around my desk.

Play fair and answer in the comments box without looking at anyone else's answers.

Oh ... and there is a prize being offered. ;)

1. What NFL team is DZER's favorite?

2. Who is DZER's favorite NFL player?

3. What is the long, ruler-like object in the pencil/pen holder called?

4. What is in the little box in front of the pencil/pen holders?

5. Who sent me the Jack-in-the-Box balls shown on the top of my monitor?

6. What are DZER's initials?

7. What is the little golfer figurine made out of?

8. Who is credited with the quote on DZER's file sorter?

9. What's in DZER's snack jar? What brand?

10. What university did DZER attend, albeit briefly? What's the name of the mascot? Give two of the nicknames of the football team.

BONUS: Find the cigarette.

That's it! Have fun, kiddos ... remember, no cheating!

Winner -- and prize -- to be announced at a later date!!

Oh derr, I totally read no. 7 as "golf ball figurine" which makes no sense. Do I get points for the glass/crystal golf ball paperweight?

PS this was really cute!

ArtfulDodger said...

all I have to say is that your desk is waaaaaay to neat and clean and organized and you are really starting to scare me with that. also, I know all the answers, but I'm gonna let someone else play since it is late here on the east coast and my eyes are all blurry.
