My bedroom has you all beat. There's just enough free space for me to go straight in from the door and sit on the foot of the bed to get dressed.

Winning when I should be heading for the shower. Free breakfast at work today!

Except for 1 bedroom that I use for storage, no room where I live looks like that room, the storage room does come close though, but it's a bit better organized.

Better late than never!

I helped Eric box up the final things in his den this evening, so I'm down here later than usual. We are doing some home improvements and we had to empty his den so that bookshelves can be built in, the room can be painted and new flooring can go in. It is a shame I had to do a major home remodel just to get that man to clean his room!

Eric's den was getting ridiculously out of control. My next step would have been to call the Health Department and get the room condemned!


Aww... it wasn't THAT bad ... then again .... I hope the Badgers clock gets to be put back :-))

Oh and being it's March 14th, HAPPY PI Day!!!

Pi has its own language, so to speak. The book "Not a Wake" by Mike Keith is written in Pilish, a style of writing where the letters in each word follow the digits of pi. These are the first two lines of the book:

Now I fall, a tired suburbian in liquid under the trees,
Drifting alongside forests simmering red in the twilight over Europe.


Count the letters of each word: 3, 1, 4, 1, 5, 9, 2, 6, 5, 3, 5, 8, 9, 7, 9, 3, 2, 3, 8, 4, 6. They spell out pi, and the book continues the pattern to 10,000 digits, the first novel to do so. It's a challenging way to write, so Keith, a computer programmer by day, developed software that alerts him when a word doesn't fit the sequence.
