Just looking around my desk. I don't think I could live without:

Pencil and pad of graph paper (if I feel uninspired, a blank canvas is the last thing I want on my screen)
Adobe suite (Illy, PS, DW specifically)
Nice large second monitor
16 - 85mm lens for the Nikon

Then there's Google Docs, Gmail, my RSS feeds and iTunes
Mine are quite simple.....
