House proud! - The Paranoid Android
...musings of a mechanically depressed robot...
House proud!
I organised the spare room and office last night. The spare room had been used as a dumping ground for all my books (I have a small library worth of books) and computer stuff. There were about 50 boxes in there, and there was no floor space left. The office had been used as a rubbish collection point for everything that the previous occupants had left behind. As some nice engineer type is going to install broadband and a telephone line in the office on Friday I thought I should at least tidy it up a little. I moved all the crap out of the office into a big box. I put all the computer stuff into the office (tidy like, so you can still walk around and see floor.) I emptied out all the boxes of cables from the spare room and sorted out the ones I'll need immediately, the rest have been put into a single box in the corner. All my books are in boxes in the other corner. I can now see the carpet in the spare room again! All the boxes not in use have been flattened for storage. I think I'll put them in the loft tonight. That just leaves the stuff in the living room. It's still hard to believe how much rubbish I have collected over the years, and the stuff that's left for me to tidy doesn't really have a "home" yet. It's unclassifiable stuff, stuff that didn't really have a "home" even when I was living at my parents, except it had to go in my room because it was mine. Now I have a choice of 6 or more rooms, and it's not clear where it should go. I want to clear my living room floor by the time Misty arrives at Christmas, because I don't want her walking into a complete shit pit. Although the rest of the house is now tidy, the first thing she'll see is just awful. I can't have that. I'd also like to Vax the living room carpet, as there is still a faint odour of stale milk. So I have my work cut out for me in the next couple of weeks.

After wearing myself out I started writing up those early paper journal entries onto my laptop. They are from May '91, I was about 20 , and the style of writing and content is *so* damn immature! It's a different me from the me of today. I'll definitely not be posting them publicly ... I'm still not 100% sure who, if anyone, will have access to read them. It got me thinking about this journal, and how I might feel reading it in years to come. Will I look back and like the me of now, or will I see someone who I am glad I grew away from, like I felt whilst reading what I had written 10+ years ago.

Oh - just on a side note, for those of you who leave everything to the last minute... just 2 weeks of Christmas shopping left!

Current Mood: okay okay
