How about "a fairly clean, but very dorm-like college dorm room"?
This was obviously not written by a geek.
(Gimpy walks around his room on the last day of College)
"good-bye chair, we've had some great times! Good-bye wall outlet, good bye desk..good bye single light bulb hanging...(walks up to a metal bed frame pushed up against a wall, and the matress flops forward)...oh! hello..I don't think we have ever been formally introduced!"
ah! Dorm life! I remember it well

i rarely tidy. :) everything just gets randomly piled up on the floor and on shelves. as long as there's a space on the floor (or something undreakable, like a pile of papers) for me to use as a stepping-stone between door/desk or door/bed, i'm fine. :D also, i've gotten to the stage where i don't bother taking down old posters before putting new ones up, hence the reason i have a timetable over my south park posters and fruvous pics over a simpsons one :D and i hoard, which makes the situation about 10 times worse!
funnily enough i'm quite organised and as long as my mum doesn't go in there and 'tidy up' (i.e. move stuff around) i know pretty much where everything is, hehe :)

this sounds exactly like my room! except for the posters thing. when i paint my room (every couple of years) i weed out the posters that mean nothing to me. currently, my walls are covered in: random fruvous memorabilia from ebay, a jian poster from maplemusic, timothy goebel (ice skater!), red wings team picture after winning the stanley cup, and gordie howe's rookie picture.

I have a lot of music and movie posters, band pictures, my calander and a couple paintings I did. I also have a picture frame my little cousin made for me hanging up. I get so much memrobelia from Ebay also. Sarah

yes, i'd also have to agree... mine kind of looks like a tornado aftermath's shrine to music. I have miles davis and the clash and gobs of posters from guitar world all over my walls. A lot of the furniture looks kind of ikea-ish, but it's never clean so it couldnt be in a catalogue, and i have instruments everywhere
erk and i's bedroom has no walking room whatsoever - there's clothes where there is floorspace, and where there's not clothes, there's furniture.
although, we just got a new standing closet to replace the broken dresser, so there's a bit more room on the entrance-side of the room.
If you walk through your new closet, do you wind up in a magical, yet allegorical land?
And then there are the book shelves, and the shelves that are stacked on top of each other. My bedroom doubles as my "study" so it's somewhat cluttered, and filled with books and the computer (well, not filled with the computer. There are also plenty of toys spread about. Most of the Legos are in the living room, but a lot of the action figures have migrated into here (transformers are great to fidgit with). The floor is a bit messy, but better than most people I know. Most of my CDs are in the livingroom too, but a stack always manages to migrate in here by this CD player. The fly in, and sit around until I resort all my CDs (which happens fairly often).
Oh, there's also a bed and some stuff to wear, but those aren't quite as interesting.

My room is a shed full of mildly interesting junk and clothes. A bunch of tiny out of date hockey posters, little pictures cut out of anywhere of Dodges and Case Internationals. I actually havea couple Case IH posters, too. And I have about a trillion books. I would really like to have more music stuff, but I can't find it, and if I can, it's too expensive.
My room looks like a tornado made it's way through a book store and a CD store and nobody cleaned up afterwards.
I'd normally say that surprisingly all the CDs ended up in order but all my DVN CDs have mysteriously dissappeared. Of course I know that Lawrence really stole them along with my bifocals.

I'm the only kid's room so far? Hmm.
I suppose that (in spite of the volume of action figures, legos, stuffed animals, and other playthings) it doesn't resemble a kid's room so much as an overgrown kids room, or an "I refuse to be a real adult" room. But kid's room seemed like the best option.
And No, tornado aftermath wasn't a better fitting category. I cleaned this weekend while there was nothing on TV. So ha indeed. It's back to the new-normal state of organized boxes and stacks of books that don't quite have homes on the bookcases. (Besides, recurring patterns of cyclone-hit-appearance just fit in more firmly with the whole kid-room theory. I mean, an aweful lot of kids create major living-space chaos, right?)
Kids room was my second choice. I can see from my computer Two large plastic dinosaurs, one with a smaller dinosaur riding it and the other with a Giles action figure riding it. I also have a gorilla, a bear, two powerpuff girl, and three groovy girls. Too bad i can't find my army men.
Ok... I just might have to move my Giles figure onto a dinosaur now...
That's what Buffy really needs: Dinosaurs!

i was going to mention the dinosaurs if you didn't. now that i have more space (our apartment is the first floor of a house), my toys are spread out throughout the house. most of them ended up on my desk, on bookshelves, or in display cases. we do have three stuffed animals in our room -- two bears and one mooooose.

My room before my family and I moved to Maine was an absolute disaster. We had no storage space at all. I ended up having a lot of my parents old clothes in the back of my closet. I also had toys that were piled everywhere since there was no storage place. I think my room was 12 x 12. When we moved, I got a room that was 13 x 20 at the longest spot and 13 x 17 for the rest of the room. We had TONS of storage space. I have a large closet with a big shelf... I used to have tons of boxes on those shelves until one night I woke up to this horrible crashing sound. I thought someone was breaking in. After screaming hysterically for a minute I turned on the light and saw that the shelf collapsed; it wasn't attached to the wall studs. My awesome Dad fixed the shelves and now I can use them again :-) I like taking naps though in the guest room. It has all my grandmother's old furnature and her old quilt. Before it was the guest room it was my 2nd bedroom. This was before my room was painted and my furnature was moved in. Sarah

Seeing as I live in a studio, my room most resembles a bedroom, living room, dining room, office, study, storage space, and kitty playground.
Actually, I've got no couch but two beds - one in the loft and one below it. I'm a professional napper, you see. The furniture is in the style of Early American mismatched crap from off the street. I'm working on upgrading one piece at a time - I've got my eyes on a neat desk/shelving type thing.
It goes from tornado to valiant attempt at putting things away but giving up after realizing that there just isn't room for everything!
Hey! My apartment is done entierly in Early American mismatched crap from off the street! Which includes the world's most comfortable couch. Of course, it's falling apart, and my rat likes to help entropy along by chewing on the stuffing, but it's a really nice couch for what I paid for it ;)
Mine is Early American mismatched crap too, and we only upgrade when something breaks, and that's usually with something on clearance or something less-used.
like, for instance, my recent upgrade.
for a while mine was cheapo IKEA crap , but I've managed to move up a little.
Well, when you've got IKEA, you have nowhere to move but up.
It's like owning a Hyundai!

Usually I would answer "tornado's aftermath", but given that my landlord is trying to sell the house my apt is in, I've actually been keeping it in decent shape - it only looks lived in. (I promised the real estate agent that the apt would be in decent shape.. though she hasn't had any showings in the last couple weeks). It's not so much the books and cds as the multiple Rubbermaid containers of yarn *snicker*

My room is small, my bed is big. To get to my bed I climb over an amp, step around a badly situated bookshelf, slide between the stereo and guitars, usually knocking over a guitar and than smashing my elbow trying to catch it, then I climb over the cabinet that makes my bass sound crappy, and slide onto my bed. On my bed is the rest of my life, my musicians porn, crossword puzzle books, the book I was trying to read before my lamp bulb burned out, and various other reading materials that I've been meaning to read since I tossed them onto the bed.

It's horrible right now. But we're working. Did tons of laundry yesterday unril we ran out of detergent. Most of the bedroom will be better when the laundry is all off the floor and clean. :) We did clean the kitchen yesterday (mopped, even!) so there's progress.
I have never ever been a person who could keep things clean. I always have the best of intentions and face the after-time of ever cleaning binge with a promise to my self to be better this time and throw things out and use the hamper and do laundry every week. But in the end I break my promises to myself. And I'm with someone who's exactly like me in that regard, unfortunately.
I have never ever in my life had, for more than a week or so, a room I could navigate without stepping on crud or feeling like I was in an obstacle course.
I beg to disagree, neater isn't better. I like the Tornado look.
yeah i'm with gordon on this one - i've always loved clutter. although, i love space. wide, open space. so while i dont like to keep things tidy, i do tend to just do huge cleaning sweeps where the whole apartment is sparkling for about...3 hours. :D
then it just all goes to shit again.
so maybe i just need an obnoxously large domicile.
That's true, the fourth law of thermodynamics states: stuff expands to fill the available space
