• Stuff & Nonsense... 2.

    From Ardith Hinton@1:153/716 to James Bradley on Wed Apr 20 23:56:14 2011
    Hi again, James! This is a continuation of my previous message to you:

    Maybe a stick of gaffer's tape, or a zip tie or two is
    what's missing so your cushions stay in place?

    Hmm. The former would help close the gap... and quite possibly scare
    certain individuals away... while the latter would keep the towel on the arm of
    the chair from slipping. I like the way you think... [chuckle].

    I'm at a point where a landslide is another opportunity
    sort and toss more stuff.

    I can relate. When the amount of decision-making one has to do seems
    overwhelming, a landslide can help solve the problem of where to begin.... :-)

    (I really *should* be working to move that fridge, now
    that you mention it. P-)

    It's taken me awhile to catch myself making such remarks & understand
    what's going on... i.e. I'm still trying to please an Authority Figure from the
    past while my intuition guides me along a somewhat different route. Unless you
    get a lot more enjoyment out of moving heavy appliances than I would, you don't
    really want to move the fridge; you want to have done it. (I can't take credit
    for the last bit... I ran across it several years ago & the rest fell naturally
    into place.) Nowadays I catch myself saying things like "I'd prefer to get xxx
    done in daylight, and before it rains again." As an adult I have the privilege
    & the responsibility of deciding for myself how I will organize my time. I can
    feel virtuous about putting business before pleasure. But I can also recognize
    what we're doing here as useful work although Aunt Hortense (God rest her soul)
    wouldn't have approved because we seem to be having entirely too much fun. ;-)

    We still have a POTS line.... :-)

    To confound things, the evil internet arrived here
    also, so ebay has been swallowing up all sorts of
    my time and available credit.

    Glad to know I can now refer you to various Internet sites as sources
    of information! If you feel you have some difficulty with getting carried away
    at live auctions in Calgary, though, the Internet may be a mixed blessing. :-)
