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?

Apart from the usual desky things (laptop, printer, pen-pots, notebooks, stapler, paperwork in progress etc.) 1) A tube of aloe vera gel. 2) A bowl containing two prawn wontons and 2 sprong rolls (both gone cold) 3) 1 current Radio Times, 1 old one. 4) 3 old journals from 1994 (recently found in a reshuffle). 5) An empty bone-china mug (blue and white) 6) My kindle. 7) A CD of new photos of Vin Garbutt. 8) My lucky plastic pirate lady (bought for me by Jaine Fenn one Milford outing). 9) A copy of Treason's Shore by Sherwood Smith. 10) A catalogue of useless overpriced and tasteless *god-whattery otherwise known as a Betterwear catalogue.

* god-whattery is stuff you look at and murmur 'God, what's that?'

Oh, the Betterware catalogues!I haven't see one of those in a while. Full of exactly god-whattery (with a side-order of 'who-on-earth-wants-one-of-those?').

There's someone in the area keeps shoving Betterwear books through my letterbox and normally they are cheesy and expensive, but benign. This one had a load of religious godwhattery in it (Holy family solar statue, anybody?) and maudlin memorials that are truly retch-worthy. Example: A cream ceramic base decorated with gold curlicues and a space for a picture of your dear departed loved one. On top is a snowglobe sphere eclosing a scroll which reads 'Your presence we miss, Your memory we treasure, Loving you always, Forgetting you never.' Or how about a graveside LED light with Jesus and Virgin Mary sticker-inserts? And all this amongst the humane cat detrerrant, the wheely-bin decorative stickers, the plastic welly-boot tray and the coal paint to make your imitation coal look just like new. Yes, really! Betterwear has truly lost the plot.
