Some major shuffling in the garage, and I can get the sofa, recliner, coffee table, end tables and all the other crap that was in there before AND now I can park my car with plent of clearance on all sides.
I NEED to have a yard sale, and SOON.
A few weeks back, I got fed up with my wireless keyboard dropping keystrokes so I tossed it across the room. Naturally, the keys exploded everywhere. I managed to quickly corral most of the lost keys, all except one, naturally, the largest and most important, the space bar.
Over the next few weeks, I turned the living room upside down trying to find it. Now, the space bar is the biggest key on a standard keyboard. How the heck could it disappear so completely? I was beginning to wonder if I'd discovered some exception to the Law of Conservation of Mass.
I even started looking in utterly improbable places, like behind books on the shelves and in other rooms. Still nothing. Finally I looked in the most unlikely place of all, and, naturally, the hardest place to get to, behind a very large and very heavy bookcase. And there it was.
I still cannot figure out how it got there, as the trajectory necessary could only be possible with the use of rockets. But there it was. It somehow managed to launch itself up and over a 7 foot tall, glass front book case.
I'm finding I kind of like this new arrangement using the sofa instead of the recliner. I guess I associated sitting in the recliner with watching TV. Sit down, turn on the boob toob. Now that the recliner is gone, that habit is broken.
Today after getting home from work, I spent 2 hours reading Alton Brown's second book (I'm Just Here For More Food), and only 30 minutes watching TV (And only because it was the Simpsons).
I hope this keeps up. I have a lot of reading to catch up on.
I just signed up for a Permanent LJ account! It gets you everything a regular paid account gets, plus you get
50 100 user icons instead of 15, and most importantly, it never expires. Yay!
