Five Years, One Background

This random plant in the Cartifact office has been my laptop background for five years now.

According to my little "On This Date" widget, it was five years ago today that I set this abstract image of a plant as my laptop background.

It's still there. I'm not sure if that's laziness or just the fact that it really does meet my needs as wallpaper: neutral colors and a little texture that reads well in the corners.

Five years is probably enough, though. It may be time to change things up. I'll have to be on the lookout for something new.
