I spent some time before going to work yesterday spiffying up Aslan‘s desktop. :D I’m not really much of a “change wallpaper every now and then” person — in fact, there would be times I hardly notice my wallpaper. Or I’d have no wallpaper at all because of my computer’s slowing down. ^^; Hee. But since I know Aslan can take it…okay, let’s just go to the desktop screenshot already:

Summer Desktop!

Don’t you just love how cheerful it looks? :D It’s no secret that I love sunflowers, and a few days before I fixed Aslan’s, Guilo’s (my office computer) is already on sunflower mode. I decided to look for one for Aslan, and found this amazingly HUGE and bright sunflower wallpaper somewhere online. :D Whee. Looking at it always makes me smile. :)

Icons on my desktop are only two: my hard drive and my torrents folder, which is currently empty. Heh. See I made the hard drive icon into a sun, so it’s really summer?

Stuff on my dock: Finder, iCal, Mail (I sometimes use this ^^;), iTunes, iPhoto, PhotoBooth, System Preferences, Firefox, Adium, MS Word, MS Excel, Photoshop, Transmission, TextWrangler, MAMP, VLC, Keyboard Cleaner, Heroes of Might and Magic 5 and Grab, which I used to take the screenshot. And of course, the trash bin. :D That may seem a lot, but believe me, I’ve seen other people’s Macs with a FULL and tiny dock. :P

Oh, and finally, I installed ShapeShifter, this program that changes the themes for Mac OS X, and my theme right now is called Fantastic. Like I said, it makes everything look so cheerful. :D

This definitely makes me excited for summer. Which reminds me, maybe I should change my office desktop from the plain sunflower on white background into something similar like this — all blue and yellow? Hm, why not?

Summer’s hereeee! I can feel that this summer is definitely going to be better than the last — I have two beach trips to look forward to. :P And probably more to come! Good thing I have good travel insurance. ;)

Have a great day ahead, everyone. :D

What's on my desktop?

Some semi-mindless meme fun! :D Woooh! Ate Toni tagged me to share how my desktop looks like in this meme. I really liked hers, and I find it funny that she called me highly creative when my desktop is hardly creative at all. Just…fangirly. ;)

Anyway, here’s my desktop:

My Current Desktop

Yes, it’s almost been a month since that night, but the hype about them is not really that over. Or, I’m just too lazy to make my own wallpaper again (but that’s mostly because I can’t run Photoshop here without closing other applications so it won’t make me cry because of it’s slowness ^^; ). Anyway, I found this wallpaper from their Nothing is Sound download page (it’s hidden from their website; I’ll put up the link when I find it again :D). I love how this one looks, because it looks so candid, so relaxed. I love how Jon smiles as he strums his guitar, how Tim looks up to Chad and Drew, as if they just came out to jam with them and how Jerome…wait, Jerome is the only one who looks like he’s posing for a photo. Interestingly, if you look at Drew’s hand, it looks kind of blurred, so maybe it is candid? Sort of.

As for the icon placement…I’m very OC about my desktop and I hate icons cluttering it…this one is still kind of messy for my taste, with the RAR and torrent files on it. I’m just too lazy to organize them just yet. ^^;

Okay after all that blabbing…I must now tag five people. Hmmm. I tag JM, Riz, Fruityoaty, Jun and Joni. :D Instructions (and lots of links) under the cut. :D
