Who wants to play?

This went around a couple of years ago and now that there are a lot more bloggers, I think it would be fun to do it again. I also think it tells a little bit about us *g*

What am I talking about??

I'm curious to see what others have as their wallpaper. Now that I have two computers, I have two different wallpapers. And since I live by myself and don't have to worry about a significant other seeing it every day, I can have whatever I want - heh heh heh.

Here is the wallpaper on my desktop computer. I don't think it will shock anyone.

*Shiver*

And here is the one I have on my new laptop - courtesy of Nath

Ooooh la la!!

It's easy to do - just do a Print Screen of your desktop and paste it into Paint and save as a JPeg file. So - anyone game?

OK, call me weird but I'm more curious about what programs or other things people have on their desktop. It's very revealing. :)

As far as a desktop pic goes, I have a pic of the DH and I, which I will never post publicly. But it's my favorite.

Ooh I love the first one, Kristie! *drooling*

I have two computers. One of my laptop's has a pretty sunset over the water. The one I'm on now's desktop is actually pretty boring. I have blue wallpaper. Huh. I think I need an upgrade, lol.

Here's the link so you can view this laptop's Wallpaper.

My boring Wallpaper, lol

orannia said...

Ohhhh! Pretty pictures :)

Hmmmm. My desktop on the home computer is a picture of the Earth from space. I never change it as doing anything on my home computer is a mission in itself :) The desktop on my work computer changes every couple of days, and usually a book cover, although currently it is a lightning storm!

Phyl said...

Like orannia, I have a picture of Earth from space. It came with the computer and I love it. My cursor is the little space shuttle. I have as few icons as possible on my desktop because I don't want to cover up the picture.

Renee said...

OK, I'll play! :-)

Here's my desktop.

I LOVE my wallpaper, which is art from the Japanese version of Nightlife by Rob Thurman.

Great idea Kristie! Here's mine ~ http://lesliespsyche.blogspot.com/2009/06/wallpaper.html

Dan Dos Santos and Luis Royo - love these artists. :)

Sarah said...

I haven't done this in a very long time! Here's mine!

MsMoonlight said...

I couldn't get a photo image of my desktop, but on my blog I shared some of my wallpaper/screensavers.

Kristie (J) said...

MsMoonlight: See what I mean? Who would have thought you were a classic car fan?

Sarah: That way you won't forget about seeing the movie will you? *g*

Leslie: Wowzers! Those are beautiful!!
I would have a hard time choosing which one to use!

Heidenkind: Oh - that's gorgeous. What vibrant colours those tulips are. Almost makes me want to become a gardiner to grow flowers that pretty.

Seton: What a dramatic scene!! Is that from Mr. & Mrs. Smith? It looks like Brangelina in the picture.

Renee: I love that one - the colours, the night sky, the city lights in the background

Phyl: *g* I'm a bad one for saving things on my desktop. When I start covering John Thornton's face, it's time to start organizing.

Orannia: I love those space shots and I've them before too. My work computer alas, is very very boring - just the company logo.

Barbara: You could indeed use and update - lol. Part of the fun is trying to decide which one to use. Since I'm hooked on SYTYCD, I figured I'd use my favourite pic from the Canadian show as my wallpaper - well - and 'cause I think it's hawt, hawt, hawt and fun to turn on the computer. And I've had that one on my desktop computer for a while now. Don't really want to change it.

Leah: LOL - I did a lot of cleaning up and deleting before I did a print screen of my desktop. I save just about everything there. As for my new one - I haven't had time to clutter it up yet.

nath said...

I got mine up :)

and LOL, YOU chose that picture!! I just put it up, which you could have done as well :D

erm... nuthin'?

Marianne McA said...

This is mine:

I don't watch the Simpsons, though the children did when they were younger, but we live near the Giants Causeway, so I thought it was fun when I saw it.

Marianne McA said...

I checked whether the link worked, and it didn't seem to (I fail at links), so word description:

It's a screen shot of Marge, Bart & Lisa (Liza?) down at the bottom of the Causeway reading the notice there.

Funnily enough, when you asked, I couldn't remember what it was: had to go and look. Time for a change.

I used to have a storm swept sea threatening a lighthouse (the cover for "Fire at Midnight") on my laptop, but I've recently changed to the cover for "Stolen Promise," which features artist Arturo Delgado's rendering of a gypsy necklace called a galbe, which is an important element in the story.

I know Kristie is a huge fan of Judy James' Broken Wing, and my new cover was done by the same artist.

Let me know what you think:

We share a common subject matter!

Here's mine

Amy C said...

Now that I know how to take a snapshot of my desktop, I can play too!

I love that bottom one. Both of them are so you, Kristie!

Mary G said...

Hi Kristie
You have good taste!!

Kristie (J) said...

Hey Mary! *evil grin* I think so too! I love them both.

Amy: I love that one too! I was so totally gone for them as a couple on SYTYCD Canada that it's great to have it whenever I turn on the computer.

Marg: *g* oh yes we do - we do indeed!

Lisa: What a great cover!!! I Adore the cover of your first book and I love the cover of this one. It's also great getting a 'first glimpse' too!

Marianne: ROTFL!!! The link worked for me and it was a hoot!! And if you ever do get a chance - you should watch The Simpsons. It's bizarre and may take watching it a few times - but once one gets into the rhythm, it's quite funny.

AL: LOL - Nothing??? Well you will have to let your imagination take you away - kind of like Calgon.

Nath: *laughing* I guess I didn't really make things clear did I? I did indeed pick out what I wanted and you loaded it on for me. And I see where you take another one of your loves and make it wallpaper.

Monroe Dawson said...

lol Love the backgrounds...my background is actually a picture from off my blog if you wanna see it...a hot guy and girl...both topless! *blush* I know...BAD BAD!

I must say that your wallpaper fits very well!
