    You know you've always dreamed of having a bookshelf in your kitchen!

    You'll think of something Squire. No more room in the basement?

    Ok, so that should be good for the 30 or so books you have heading your way. But what will you do after that space runs out?

    Anything you can do to reorganize the basement and fit an extra shelf or two in there?

    I've ot a washer and dryer, a treadmill, and a 350 lb desk in corners and against the wall that are taking up as little space as possible, so the basement is out, I think. With the exmpty shelf, and the top of my headboard, that's 3 bookshelves. I'll hopefully have time to think after that.

    Just got notice from PS. The books will go out early next week. But I won't get a 'dispatched' notice.

    I'd say throw out the treadmill or put a bookcase behind it. I did that with my eliptical...well a DVD rack anyway but its huge. And it worked out well. I'm ready to sell that eliptical. Maybe buy myself that dinged knowing darkness with the money.

    I know pete...I feel so guilty. I couldnt pass it up. I did get a GST rebate last week and made a $130 cc payment so I'm basically just back where I started. I'm no further behind.

    I've been rambling on talking to a woman via email about stephen king for the last half hour. She may or may not have a copy of the 1978 The Stand in her attic. She is selling it for $10 but she has no idea which one it is because her attic has no stairs until tomorrow. It's killing me. lol. Since she says it is in great shape its more than likely the uncut since the old doubleday books do not hold up well...but you never know.

    They do; they read Harlequin Romance books to you until you swear off reading (if that doesn't seem to work, they move on to the novels of Susan Sontag) and they force your to sell your book collection at a big rehab rummage sale for 5 cents a book--to people who will move far away! (with the money going to pay the electricity bill for giving you shocks every time you touch a book--a Pavlov's dog kinda thing). It's really rough...
