Shockingly Productive Weekend

I had a shockingly productive weekend. I actually organized, which is something I used to love to do, but haven't been able to bring myself to tackle in the last seven months. I cleaned out beneath my bathroom sink, and my dresser. I think the next project will be the linen closet and my walk-in closet. And someday I'll have to sit down and figure out my filing...my formerly well-organized system has now been reduced to stacks of paper in various locations around the house. Oh, and I'm caught up on my TiVo. Which is awesome...is it weird that I feel guilty when my TiVo starts getting full? Yes, I'll answer that one myself, it is weird. I'm feeling guilty for having a life. That's sad on several different levels. Guess I'll have to start getting used to that feeling again. June has me traveling out of town three of four weekends: the West Coast of FL for K&E's wedding, Ohio for my cousin A's High School Graduation (can't BELIEVE she's that old!), and California for a mini-vacation and H&J's wedding. This'll be my first trip to Cali, so I'm very excited! I can't wait to get there! And hopefully, I'll have an iPad to accompany me! I've ordered one, and have no idea how long it will take to get here, but the nice lady at the Apple store seemed to think it would be in time for the big cross-country trip, so everyone keep your fingers crossed for me! I want a new toy!! :)

Oh, and on a totally unrelated note, I have no idea why or who, but someone has given me a gift subscription to Condé Nast Traveler. Anyone want to own up? It appeared in my mailbox today, and I was told that it was a gift, and the giver wishes to remain anonymous. Seriously? I can see with flowers, or jewelry, or something else, but Conde Nast Traveler? Really?

Ahh, Weekend Update...

It's always nice when pop culture says some of the things I've been thinking while watching the news...



I haven't really watched SNL for a few years now, but had to tune in for the Betty White episode, and was pleasantly surprised by Weekend Update!

The Mystery Chair is Back!!

Every once in awhile, a chair appears at the end of my hallway:



It matches the hallway carpet, so the first time it appeared, I thought perhaps it was a new decoration that the building management company had brought in. Except that it was only on my floor. And then I thought one of my neighbors at the end of the hall had put it there. Except they said they hadn't. So then I thought perhaps one of the other neighbors had put it there for someone to take. And then it disappeared, so I didn't think too much more about it.

And then it reappeared again:



So now I'm confused. What's the point?? I don't understand, I mean seriously, it appears, it disappears...and why is it there in the first place? To differentiate our hallway from all the others when you come home plastered? So you can sit down when you can't find your keys? I hate to break it to ya kids, but if you can't find your keys you won't have made it past the front gate to begin with so the chair thing seems like a moot point. Maybe it's for the blind guy who lives in our hall and keeps "accidentally" trying to get into other people's apartments at 3a.m. Maybe someone who lives at the end of the hall got tired of being rudely awoken in the middle of the night and decided to leave something there for him to trip over? Me, I'm just thinking of ways to rig up an electrical current to my door handle. Too bad I broke up with the physics major, back in the day, huh? There's a source of knowledge that could have come in handy. Oh well, I'm resourceful, I'll figure something out! Or perhaps get a chair of my own.

So, the mystery chair is back. No one knows how long it will stay, or what it will be used for while it's here, but it remains an enigma wrapped in inscrutability. And yet another example that Florida people are weird.
