Which widgets do you have on it? Are they messy or organized?
Do you have many widgets that aren't displayed?
Bonus points for a screen shot (shift + cmd + 3).
On mine, I have: local weather, local time and Sydney time (my friend is moving there next month), date, two countdowns, upcoming events from iCal, sticky notes, apple logo (colour can change to suit my mood), google search, wikipedia search, dictionary, website update watcher, IP address displayer, button to launch new sticky notes.
I have lots of widgets i'm not using, mostly little games like tic tac toe, mini poker, clicky thing, chia pet, solitaire, iStat pro, a grid to line up widgets neatly, etc.
