I am horribly disorganized. The space beneath my desk is a terrible mess. I was looking for a book about runes, as well as an old notebook of mine. I did not find it. I found these.

I went to put the Discworld stuff back on my shelf for it. The bookends (plain black metal things) are almost jutting over the sides of the shelf now, and there are still a few books that should go there lying scattered about the house. When I do find them, they won't fit. The cheap white plastic shelf itself, which I've had for ages, is sagging beneath the weight. The whole set of shelves is leaning slightly forward. This is bad. I will now have to do a minor reorganizing of my room solely in order to evacuate the Discworld books to a safe place. I won't pick up any of the clothes heaped on the futon, of course, or shelve any of the books scattered about the room. In fact, I might make more of a mess. But my Discworld books will be safe!

I also took a quiz thingy. Keelie made it.

Which PI Girl Is For You?


Back to searching every nook and cranny for that book and notebook. I've probably neglected some really obvious place, and that's where they'll both be.
