No, I don't know how this happens. My desk does this. It also currently holds a dvd set of the 1966 BBC series of The Three Musketeers, a folder, lots of pens and pencils, my lectern, a couple of books I need to return to other people; a pair of scissors, a wooden ferret (carved out of sycamore, and beautiful), a mug of water, several notebooks and my kindle (as well as the keyboard and monitor). But these are more normal.
So, what's on your desk?

We have three, I think, but only the Japanese one gets much use, as it's so pretty. But they are lovely objects in themselves.

I have three teapots, and the Japanese one (from Bee House) gets the most use in my house, too! It's the best design for me. It pours nicely and it holds enough water for 2 very large mugs of tea.

My largest tea pot is fine china, pours beautifully, is easy to clean, and is graceful and delicate. It holds three times as much as the Bee House pot and is really only useful when I have guests.

My disappointing tea pot is the traditional Brown Betty, I'm afraid. It's the right size for me, but every time I pour, the tea bernoullis under the spout and spills everywhere. I now understand why I've never seen a Brown Betty without a little plastic gizmo on the spout to prevent this.

My mother has a green denby teapot that pour perfectly: I think it's ruined me for all other standard teapots, I have to say. But the Japanese ones are so neat and so lightweight.
