Trying to Write, Trying to Clean

Today I set out and cleaned some of the things, including the horror that is my closet. I got a lot of things cleared out, rearranged, vacuumed, and dusted; I need to get in there with a box and clear out some of the old video tapes that are stored on the bookshelves in there that I've replaced on DVD, maybe get rid of some of the books I'm sure I'm not going to read again (perhaps the "Cat Who..." books, which started good but got really bad in later years--the last one I read the murder "mystery" was sort of an afterthought, as though the author reached page 150 and remembered she was supposed to be writing a mystery).

Even in the air conditioning, I've been sweating like mad; it's reached HOT time in Phoenix, and now it will stay HOT for a long while, I'm sure. It'll be 113 most of this week. *gasp*

I got another chapter up: The Nightwalker, Part V.

A couple of weeks ago, while winding through the traffic and construction barriers on 32nd Street and Thomas, Barb ended up in the rightmost lane, and proceeded through the intersection. I commented that it wasn't allowed, because there was a clear "Right Turn Only" sign there. She denied it. I took a picture the next day:

Okay, it's a temporary sign only during the construction, but it's THERE. So I'm a smart ass. :D

I think I'll fry up what's left of the bacon to go with the burgers for tonight. Not sure what else we have, but I know Barb's gotten some salads out there on the table. Nom.

I blush to admit I can't even get into my closet at the moment. Also, I gave gajillions of videotapes to a local senior housing center near me, and they were thrilled.

Yeah, I couldn't get very far into mine, either. It's a little (marginally) better now...

I've donated all of the ones I've gotten rid of so far, but there are still some I hesitate to part with because I HAVEN'T replaced 'em yet!

I kept the unreplaced/irreplaceable ones, too. Someday I'll convert them to DVD. (Also someday? I'll grow tall and learn to fly.)

Hee hee hee.

I'm very glad to find I'm not the only one who has closets which require serious spelunking to get INTO.

Agh! The formatting didn't come through. That's okay -- it's anti-perfectionism therapy...

It's the thought that counts! :D

Hey, you -- go over to Donna Bell's Bakery at 301 W 49th for a Pride Cupcake! It's a place we have to visit when we get there. :)
