    My list sounded like a lot until I realized I don't have drawers. Its a nice desk. Its a big desk. I use one whole side of it and can lay out full sets of plans. But it has no drawers. Thus the Staples inventory on top of it....

    The usual mess of papers that I am working on, those that should've been filed, and those that could be recycled.

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?
    From Kelly's Heroes (1970)


    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.
    From Electric Horseman (1979)
