Nightstand Inventory

Following the success of Paul’s enormously popular “What’s On Your Coffee Table?” (so popular it was, he had to remove it because it was on infringing on Google’s “Right to Hits” patent), here’s a similar question for the Pingers at large:

What’s on your nightstand?

Mine is not terribly exciting: a small lamp, an alarm clock, and my glasses’ case. It used to have scattered notepaper on it as well, but I recently cleaned it off.

Inside one of the drawers I also keep a pad of paper and a small audio recorder to record any dreams I remember in the middle of the night (like this weird one I had the other night about John Ritter…).

How about you?

Lamp, alarm clock, whatever books I'm currently reading. Right now that is "Direct From Dell" and "Space Odyssey 2001."

I probably should get a pad of paper and pencil there too. Earlier this week I woke up of a vivid memory of hanging out with Rob Lowe in a dream, but I could not recall what he was doing in my dream, just that he was there.

Lamp, alarm clock, a whole pile of change, my glasses case, and a phone. Also, if they weren't on my person at the moment, my watch, glasses cloth, keys, wallet, and work ID badge would also be there.
