In the past couple days, I made an effort to organize the things that were going to go into my part of the office/spare room of the new house. This led to a lot of anti-hoarding productivity. In the midst of getting rid of papers I wondered why I'd kept, and records that were no longer needed (like billing statements that are too expired--as in from circa 2006 or 2007--to be useful in the event of an IRS audit on the off chance that I ever get to be one of the people randomly audited by the Man), I came across lots of fun things.
A poem written for me years ago,
A quote of something a friend said that I wrote on a napkin from O'Neill's Pub because it was during the days before twitter,
Lyrics to some songs,
A friend's writing on several napkins from an unknown restaurant,
Typed up published poetry from a well-known author,
Comic strips I'd cut out because they entertained me/made me feel good,
And so on.
In an effort to save these things somewhere where they are less likely to get lost, and also to share them because I find them enjoyable, I'll be putting these things up in several posts. If I feel the need to draw someone's specific attention, there'll be some sort of liner note or what have you. If they feel the need to ignore it, I'll never know. I'll be entertained either way.
Oh, and somewhere in the midst of putting all this stuff into cyberspace, I may finally feel inclined to say something more about life, more specifically, my life. Yay livejournal.
