No, it’s a roll of paper towels. (There’s often a roll of toilet paper in there because I use it to blow my nose when I can’t find a box of kleenex).
Also, judging by the photo reply he left, I think quixotekid and I have the same monitor.
I should mention that while this is my desk, but I don’t actually use it all that often. I have a little folding table that I use with my MacBook Air. The monitor is mostly used to watch stuff on the Drobo (not shown). The TV is mostly used for watching stuff on TV. The rest of it is just assorted crap that piles up. There are similar piles in the dining room, and at my real office.
You wouldn’t even want to look in our basement.

I totally forgot about Drunk Uncle. The episodes I watched yesterday are the ones where he stole money from his company in order to stop a merger that would have cost thousands of people their jobs. Alex P. Keaton was very upset. The FBI guy was hilarious. There was a lesson learned - I forget what it was. I’m craving vanilla.
