I'm eating Ben and Jerry's Pistachio Pistachio ice cream.
Pistachio ice cream with roasted pistachios in it.
I adore pistachio ice cream.
My room isn't done. That probably won't happen for a few weeks, to tell the truth. I still have to recieve and then assemble a bed and then I have to figure out the whole bookcase thing. The shelves I have aren't exactly bookcases... but they're huge. So there's two of them and they *almost* hold all my books (they can hold 900lbs a piece, and they're 36 inches wide, 16 deep. They were cheap and they're sturdy. works for me), which I would need at least 4 or 5 standard bookcases to do. But the problem is, bookcases have *sides* to them. These don't. So I have to find some very very effective bookends or end supports for the shelves before I can really organize stuff.

So that'll all have to happen after the bed goes in. Those projects I had planned for my days off? none of them have happened.
Aint that always the way... hehe.
I just want to get this all done. I *need* to have a bed, or something closer to a bed. years of sleeping on a sofa bed, sofa, the floor or a cot (since I was about 17) have made me envy people with real beds.

you know, when i read about your organizing projects, i get all excited (no, not that way - ick). i never thought i would ever say this, but i go into the Container Store and suddenly have to fight the urge to buy the stupidest things that will, of course, make my house more organized and make me happier, shinier, and happier. help. am i becoming obsessive-compulsive? or do i need more hobbies? ;-)

If the notion of Holly stretched out over bookcases wearing nothing but pistachio ice cream doesn't excite you, nothing will.

No peep out of you for *months* and this is what you have to say when you *do* resurface?

You're supposed to use the model glue for your projects, Gates, not for sniffing.

Ya know, I get that way when people talk about office supplies or organization too. I want every organizing plastic container ever made and I want shelves and labels and contact paper and ... just all sorts of things.

So if you're heading toward obsessive compulsive, I'm right there with ya.
