My shelves sag with a vast and varied assortment of books, CDs, comics, etc., and, like all media junkies, I'm goofily proud of those collections. These are things selectively chosen according to my unique tastes, actively acquired, and purposefully saved and displayed. Just like a normal, functioning person.
These pictures do not reflect those things.
[Caveat: I have a roommate who is equally crazy/lazy, thus 50% guilty.]
| I've been meaning to buy some twine. I'm pretty sure there's a ball of it somewhere.|
You see, I read a newspaper every day, but recycling comes only Fridays. I usually remember this on Saturdays. Then Sundays, the newspaper is extra thick. And so on. I don't want these newspapers in my apartment anymore. I just haven't had the time or energy to bundle them up and haul them downstairs. If anyone wants to do this for me, I'll pay you twelve dollars.
|Also in dire need of packaging and taking the hell out of here are all these unprocessed nickels.|
|Yes, and the ones hiding beneath the sink, too.|
|The Laundromat returns my shirts on these cheap wire hangers. I've now got a hanger-to-shirt ratio of like twelve to one. I think I might throw a party in the wintertime just so I can hang up everyone's coat.|
| If you're the type who winds up with lots of unintentional collections of tiny things (where do I put all these movie-ticket stubs?), then cigar boxes come in handy. Unfortunately, you then find yourself with a cigar-box colony. |
| And lots of coffee cans for containing things like hundreds and hundreds of pens, pencils, and markers, of which 90% have long since dried up, but really who has time to test hundreds of pens for ink?|
|I don't know when or why I dropped all these bottle caps in there. Maybe I thought I was going to do some stupid art project or something? I can't throw them away because I think there's some charity that will give a sick little girl a new kidney only if you mail them ten billion bottle caps.|
|Yes, the Leaning Tower of Pizza. I'm sorry, but I think just this once, the most hackneyed pun in history is actually apropos.|
Again, that Friday recycling thing passes us by. Anyway, La Rondine makes a hell of a good slice of Sicilian.
