Non-kitchen items in your kitchen?

Is your kitchen dedicated purely to the creation and clean up of food? Or do other things hang out in the kitchen?

My mom keeps a TV in her kitchen and not just for watching cooking shows. She also keeps stationary, the telephone, staplers, and stamps plus two bulletin boards containing loads of random scraps of papers. I think she's got a few photos stashed around as well.

My kitchen, however, is almost pure. Even the calendar in there comes from our take-out place, so that we can look in the fridge, find it bare, and pivot smoothly to the calendar for the tacos-to-go hotline. The only non-food habitants are two philodendrons that I am sure will eventually take over the state of North Carolina if they keep growing at this rate.
