Cleaning Bugged
Just a thought from 8 November 2003 about .

It's now almost 48 hours after the cleaning bug hit and I've sold an old computer and two game consoles on Craig's List, thrown away a dozen bags of garbage, set up a bookcase, bought fifty bucks in storage boxes, and reorganized the last 10 years of my nogstalgic detritus into neat, organized boxes.

Discardia rocks.

Most days, I can remember so vividly what it was like to be 13, 18, 26 ... my past is so ever-present that it feels like no time has actually passed at all. But going through these boxes this weekend, finding the treasures I buried over the years, all the photos, tapes, love notes, and other unmentionables ... it makes me realize just how much ground I've covered in 30 years.

And damn does my office look good. Tomorrow, the desk. Now, beer.

This section is called Just a Thought. It's a blog where I post little pieces of what I'm thinking about at the moment. This page is an individual entry called “Cleaning Bugged” that I wrote on 8 November 2003.

Before this, I wrote a little something called “Still Life With Artist” on 7 November 2003. After this, I wrote “Cleaning Done” on 10 November 2003.
