Things that go........

Slow time work wise so I've been doing my "Domestic Goddess" impression; vacuuming, carpet shampooing, four loads of washing, going through some of the piles of stuff that may be useful and determining that they are not as useful as I first thought - you know the jive. Anyways, about midnight the rains came - biblical proportions - and I'd just finished watching "The Negotiator" and "White Sands" had just started. I've not seen this before so I thought I'd watch it. Thunder and lightening, donner and blitzen, the full jive going off outside when there is an enormous crash from upstairs. Now this isn't a large house and there isn't anyone else here but it still made me jump! Finally found that my careful filing had collapsed (the back bedroom is my office) and the industrial strength hole-punch had slowly obeyed Sir Issac's main law and taken with it the folder it had been sitting on. I think I'll give up tidying up because it only causes trouble!

13 careful considerations:

I picture you with one of those little feather dusters, prancing around on your tip toes and whistling a tune :)

the crashing hole punch ruined the visual

Angie said...

cheri ... would he be nekkid as well?? ;)

My filing system is always collapsing. Needs a bit of Intelligent Design behind it, me thinks. :-) I find that most things stay put if I just leave them all on the sofa.

Sir Isaac Newton was wrong. There is no such thing as gravity. The Earth sucks. (Some places more than others.)

ngie, I kinda had him in a little black and white maids uniform...a really frilly one :)

Angie said...

ooOOooo cheri! Now that would work too!! ;) nothing underneath tho ... please say nothing underneath!

Perhaps it's got something to do with all those pocket mods you keep stacking up! I thought filing systems were designed to fall.

Scary and Angie are scary! :-) Sorry I didn't reply sooner, insomnia kicked in so I didn't sleep at all last night (but bits of the house look lovely and clean). I'm in total zombie mode now and will crash soon (I hope!)

Squidski - I think you are probably right! I was discussing buddhist philosophy with someone in Kathmandu this morning (on MSN) and we were takling stuff like this (and also Steven Hawkin's description of time being saucer shaped).

Anna - this type of filing is specific to many students and it might also be described as simply slinging the finished course out of the way :-)

Angie said...

scary?? me?? never! I'm sweet and all that stuff! ;)

I think there is a ghost in your office messing with you...

annarid said...

Office?!!

Nogbad said...

Office! My back bedroom is a box room/office! Tsk - jive from a woman who relies on me for her Internet connectivity!?!?!? :-)

Don't y'all refer to it as "hoovering"?
