My dream desk...

I have a love/hate relationship with post-it notes -- mostly love.  I go through a ton of them and keep my desk stocked with all sizes (preference for 3x3).  I am not a colorful person and generally stick to the washed out yellow of the cheap, imitators of the genuine brand.  So it was with great joy that I read of the invention of my dream desk (except that it is not styled like the giant mahogany traditional desk in my office and it has no drawers to squirrel away all my stuff).  They got the top just right.  Maybe this is the desk you have been waiting for, too!

I am not sure how exactly I would use it but I am pretty pumped with desire to give it a try. Imagine the things you could do with such giant yellow sticky notes!

Old fuddy duddy that I am, I might suggest a slight modification -- instead of the obligatory calendar desk pad, how about a calendar size stack of giant post-its that we could use to retrofit the glorious solid wood desks of old?

Yes, that is my modification -- not a desk made of post-its but a desk top of replaceable post-it notes for doodling, phone numbers, notes, etc...  The one good thing about the giant size is that they would be far easier to keep tabs on than the ubiquitous 1x1 1/2 size -- especially when it looses its sticky.  What do you think?  Is this a great idea or what?

Great idea, but a little difficult to attach to 8 1/2x11" paper!

The sheets of paper in the traditional calendar desk pad can be replaced with plain paper, and they make Post-It glue sticks....
