Mood:Horrified
Music:Mission: Organization
I'm watching Mission: Organization on HGTV and there's a couple getting their multi-purpose room made over. The couple seem to be hipper (and thinner) versions of jebra and myself, and their living room is almost as cluttered, so I started paying attention. As they're talking with the person helping them with the makeover, the husband comments that one reason they have difficulty is that both of their families are also pack rats, to the point that his father has trouble throwing away used paper towels. I thought to myself "Thank God I'm not that bad!" Then I remembered I've been tossing my used paper towels into the container we use to collect organic materials for the compost bin -- so I *have* been saving them.

I'm not sure if I should laugh or cry.

Oranized people scare me. They're so... organized.

You could always challenge the more organized folks to come in and impose order upon your house. :-)

Oh, that's funny. You know I take disorder to a whole 'nother level than you do, so I can't even think of laughing at you, but ... really, it's not the same thing. You're managing to throw them away in a more useful way. It's when you start recycling TP or dental floss that you need to worry.

(I kind of save used paper towels. But that's only out in the garage -- I figure I can check my oil more than once and while it's useful, it's wasteful to chuck it.)
