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?

At work: two monitors (both working), a bag of apples, an orange, a two-tier in-and-out file, a metal standing horizontal file, a Condensed Oxford Dictionary, papers of dubious relevance to my work, materials for pending manual re-write, more papers, three ring binders (large, 2, small, 3) box-that-looks-like-a-book with hidden chocolate for staff emergencies, a three-tier metal file, a lot of fountain pens, a Hello Kitty tin with pennies in it, several mugs (all clean), a tiny umbrella made of card stock and a bent paperclip, more papers, a calendar the size of an old-school desk blotter, a wooden box once used to file case ID cards (4" x 6" size) back when we used those, a small container of salt, a box of tissues, a nearly empty tube of hand lotion, a new bottle of hand lotion, a stapler (not red), a thirty-five-year-old copy of The Voice That Is Great Within Us*...possibly some other things buried under more papers...

I may need to clean up, as my cubicle is beginning to look like something a hard-working archeologist might be able to get a grant for, if only it was at least a hundred years old and had been found during the clearing of an urban lot for new construction.

No cats, as they are Not Allowed in government offices, although one would love it, since there wouldn't be any other cats, and so would another, because he has never met a stranger.

Now, that's what I call a well-personalised desk! I can see that all those are necessary in some way or another. (I have a shelf over my desk, otherwise I'd have very similar books on it, too.)

The shelf is full of manuals and such.
