Going Paperless

I always have a large stack of papers and receipts that I need to go through and file but never get around to. It moves around from place to place in my apartment because I never want to deal with it but don’t really have a place for it. I’ve redone filing systems in the […]

I have two tomato plants, a planter box with several patches of chives, another with several patches of parsley and a pot with four basil […]

Straws on the Camel’s Back

The following is a list of things that absolutely drive me crazy. If you want to get me to start beating people with a crowbar or smashing people’s faces in with a Maglite, these are a great start.
