A stack of bills, a CRT monitor I need to haul away, and a couple of dust bunnies are all within reach.

Something toxic.

There's a small (AA) battery, which I presume is toxic.

Rainwater?

Surprisingly, there's a little desktop sandbox near my desk here at work, with at least 3 legitimate rocks, plus some pebbles, and a lot of sand.

Sure. Several, even in you don't include the ones my coworkers are using right now.

Nope. Got some sugar and sweetener packets, but not that one.

Yes, if the flag of the UK printed on the side of a cardboard box counts.

I'm pretty sure I could sprint to mine in the driveway in 15 seconds if I really tried, but too lazy right now.

Not that I'm aware of. Maybe one of the guys around the office is wearing one, but I'm not going to start puling on hair to find out. Anyway it would probably take more than 15 seconds.

We have a Princess Mononoke poster on the wall. So yes, if she counts.

If an Android phone counts then yes. Else, I don't know. I know where the servers in our building are physically located but I do not know which OS runs on them. I could reach them in 15 seconds if I am lucky and nobody gets in my way.

Only if I replace "s" with "c". Although my colleagues would find it rather strange and I would probably get fired for it. So I won't.

I feel like it's a testament to my morning state of mind that I read "A fish?" and thought, "No, but I do have this (chicken) egg here, which is almost the same thing." Wow.

So that's a no.

If a hoodie counts, yes. If not, I can't reach my car in that timeframe.

Yup: Given the polarisation caused by the independence referendum in Scotland, this probably isn't the best maketing campaign:

Not exactly, but I do have a Canadian dime which is pretty close, I guess. I think it's silly that an American machine can give it as change, but it won't accept it for payment.
