As Thursday draws to an end

It's been one of those days... One of those days when I get very busy. And yet also one of those days when I look back at what I have actually achieved and it ain't much.

Half the day was spent in a meeting with our design partner in my dining room.

Almost half the day was spent retrieving an old computer out of storage and quickly bringing it back on to the front line and into active duty following the death of its brother. And that entails reinstalling software, reinstalling fonts, copying any other relevant files on to it...

About an hour and a half spent doing our quarterly tax shenanigans. And an hour or so was spent doing proper work work.

No time to write any blog posts. No time to visit any blogs and see what my buddies have been up to.

Oh, I did have a massive clear-out of my desk (above), though. That was worthwhile. I could no longer function the way it was. It was bordering on insanity. I found several bank statements and other important documents that really ought not to be languishing at the bottom of piles of junk and waste paper. Oops.

You know what they say: messy desk equals messy mind. Well, now my desk is very empty, and my mind feels that way, too. Surely that's not good? And now I'm going to close down, go and have some dinner (Red is making vegetarian spaghetti carbonara), and watch Little Miss Sunshine.

Now I feel like a slug. I didn't make a mess on my desk at all today.

Life takes over, huh? A bit of spring cleaning - even if just the desk - is always a valuable exercise. Decluttering is good for the soul.

I should do some of that.

That's why I can never find any hankies! They're all on your desk...

Doing what I do, that scene at the pageant in Little Miss S really made me laugh. Embrace the space - nature abhors a vacuum and soon enough, all sorts of good things will come to fill it.

It's good to see another desk as messy as mine! I hope you enjoyed LMS, my daughter and I sat home watching it on a sick day. We laughed pretty hard. It's one of the best movies we've seen in a while.

Little Miss Sunshine is a perfect tribute to a beautiful spaghetti alla carbonara (vegetarian? how do you make that?). I hope you liked the film; I think it's brilliant. Zorro loved it too.
As for your desk: that is NOT mess. It's called 'I can multi-task'.

Little Miss Sunshine might be the single most insightful look at all that is dysfunctional in the American psyche that I've seen in a good long while.

Wonderful flick.
