How do you decorate your cubicle?

I've recently moved into a nice sized cubicle at work. My walls and desk are pretty barren, except for work crap and a cup with pens/pencils. How do you decorate your cubicle?

I have this poster hanging smack dab in the middle of the wall you see when you walk into mine:



Which is fucking hilarious because 90% of the nerds here don't even know who that is. One guy asked if it was Nelson Mandela.

Also have a couple other posters of a couple other bands. And some rock fountain that sound soothing whenever I plug it in (once a year).

Clearly it's a McDonalds employee, circa 1974.

Fortunately it's been just a few years since I had to do the cubicle thing, but I remember my desk having the following:

-my 'puter
-my phone
-my beverage
-my "work" notebook (filled with worky papers and other crap I didn't care about)
-my personal notebook (with my secret pictures of "hearthrobs" -- the last one I remember being in there was Liev Schreiber - heh - I was too embarrassed to put up pictures of people like that; personal notes, to-do lists, and crap I scribbled about when I was pretending to work.)
-we'd had an office Christmas party where you were supposed to spend ONE DOLLAR and my Santa pal got me one of those tiny little slide-boxes of Bayer Aspirin... I laughed really hard. (It was a shitty job at.. I'm not supposed to say.. AOL.) So I kept that and set it up on my desk for a chuckle.
-maybe a tiny little plant? Can't remember.
-a bunch of stupid sticky notes to come in for quality assurance (I always got good reviews, somehow)
-little, cheap McDonald type toys to fiddle with when I was on the phone. Not necessarily McDonald's, but just any little crappy cheap toy to play with while I was listening to customers drone on and on.
-I didn't hang posters on my walls because I didn't want people to make fun of me for the things I liked, or say, "Who the hell is that" or whatever.

So, very very boring.

I have no personal items on my desk or in my cube. I want the option of being able to leave the office at the end of the day and never have to come back in again for any reason.

I have a window office, but share with someone.

I have:
- empty pop cans
- stacks of unused specs about things I should read
- an empty bag ofRap Snacks tacked to the wall (The Red Hot Riplets, or #7 in the machine on the site)
- 21" widescreen and a 19" regular LCD
- Window.

I have an office, but everything is work related. I don't want my co-workers to know about my personal life.

anyone put their diplomas in their cubicles? or do you save that until you get an office? I haven't seen anyone with one yet.
