What is it about office supply stores that make me so happy? Sure, they’re overpriced most of the time, but wow… everything is just so efficient.
I found myself in a delirium of joy last night, wandering through the aisles in search of sharpies, filing folders, and various supplies. I don’t know why the idea of filing my bank statements and bills in pretty colored folders makes me smile, but at least I am trying to stay ahead of the blizzard of paper that takes over my desk at home.
I’ve lived in my house for 1 1/2 years, and I feel like only now do I really live there. One roommate and I are considering the purchase of a rodent of some kind…probably a gerbil. I haven’t had a furry pet since my rabbit in high school, and I tend to kill fish after a while. Maybe with another person helping we’ll manage to have a pet with a decent lifespan.
I also enjoy the efficiency of a 24-hr post office, and feel rather spoiled in that regard. There is something beautiful in the streets of Chicago’s Loop at 7 pm…silence.
Now if only I could figure out a way to fit my clothes in a closet that is much too small for the amount of stuff that I try to put in it…
At last count we were at 5 weddings upcoming for the 2006 season. Everyone…on your mark, get set…GO! I love watching this whole process from the sidelines. Do I get to cheer people on? I’d like to develop jerseys and little flags to wave. bwahahaha.
