Open Thread #13
Phew, exhausted — have spent the past few days in a manic burst of early spring cleaning. I love things ordered but my natural state veers toward The Clutter (far be it for me to defy inertia and therefore science and nature and god). Amazing how much stuff we accumulate, isn’t it? I’m not a natural pack rat, but I have to remind myself it’s okay to throw things away, an impulse that reaches a high whenever I see those sad hoarder profiles on Oprah or whatnot — you know, they have a dozen half-functional toasters, a closetful of empty boxes, piles and piles of junk mail they can’t toss, all of which they rationalize as “necessary.” I used to work with a guy whose home (reportedly) was completely drowning in newspapers, stacked in such dense columns that he was essentially living in a precarious maze of floor-to-ceiling newspapers. With ten cats. Skeery.
What else is everyone up to this Friday? Week? Month?
SONG OF THE DAY
Matt Pond PA – “Giving It All Away.” One of my favorite indie-rock musician/bands.
