Found a great line from Margaret Atwood, to be tucked away for the lost and confusing times.

Recipes some things I’m likely to cook in the next few weeks.
I’m also gearing up to redo much of the front bathroom (previously peeped in the Poop Stool post). This will include my first foray into hanging wallpaper. I do not want to fuck up.
- Installing the First Sheet of Wallpaper | YouTube - Great tip I didn’t see anywhere else: fold the top edge over onto itself an inch or so to keep paste off the ceiling.
- The same host of the previous video, Jim Tiner, is a total motherfucking wallpaper pro and has a whole series of videos on hanging wallpaper that is very, very helpful.

I have a cool filing cart that I half spraypainted bright orange and abandoned last year. I’d done a similar one bright blue for KK’s office, and it looked great, especially with her repro vintage Orangina poster. I thought a different bright color would perk up my own workspace, but after doing half, it just looked like the kind of filing cart a safety-conscious hunter would roll into the woods.

We’ve been busy turning our de-landscaped front yard into a lush emerald paradise. This will have its own post soon.

- Cool Thumb-controlled Watering Pot Made With Recycled Materials | Fun In The Making . Spotted on Lifehacker recently. I thought it was a great design that might be easier on the wrists than a traditional watering can. It would also be good for visually impaired folks, since the aiming is immediately below your hand, not a foot or more farther out at the end of a spout.
