Junk Room; Staircase; Other Stuff

Items removed yesterday and today from the junk room (aka "the book room") include:
  • Broken folding camping chair.
  • Two grocery bags of old newspapers (more to follow).
  • My airplane barf-bag collection (unused) from the early 90s.
  • Duplicate copies of a Bill Moyers book and a Saturday Night Live book.
  • Numerous dried-up pens, icky crayons, dried-up rubber bands, and rusty (!?) staples. Also, one exploding stapler.
  • One grocery bag of financial documents to be shredded (more to follow).
  • Printer that only works if you hand-feed it one sheet at a time.
  • Xeroxed sheet music of Christmas carols for the guitar I let my brother have over a year ago.

More junk/book room cleaning tomorrow. (Another day off work, but I'll probably go in for a couple hours anyway. Why? To finish reorganizing my desk, of course.)

However, all work and no play... so, my ♥GF♥ and I spent NY Eve and NY morning watching all eight installments of the fascinating documentary "The Staircase" about the murder trial of Michael Peterson. OMG, it was absolutely riveting! It was about this guy whose wife died when she either fell or was pushed down the stairs of their house. He says she fell, the cops and the D.A. say he pushed her (and maybe helped her along by hitting her on the head). Perfect for fans of any or all of the 47 "Law & Order" or "CSI" shows currently airing.

Here's a cool site I found via Chicago Bloggers: Wackapedia. Go check it out; I think I'm going to add it to the blogroll.

This is a good (and extensive) piece about Roger Ebert. (Via Kottke.)

And lastly, guess who's back?

Hi KaneC, glad to learn about your site, and thanks for the kind words. FYI, you should put a link to your site feed on your main page so people (like me) can easily add it to RSS readers. Blogger has a setting for it somewhere under Settings.

Been meaning to; Never got around to it. (A common theme of mine both in and out of the Blogosphere.) Consider it almost done.
