Organized? I Don’t Play an Instrument

Since it’s still Friday for an hour, here are my answers to the Friday Five questions.

1. Would you consider yourself to be an organized person? Why or why not?

I am not organized. I long to be organized and strive for it in my daily life, but it is always just beyond my reach. If I could keep the cookies just beyond my reach too, I could at least be thin and disorganized.

2. Do you keep some sort of planner, organizer, calendar etc. with you and do you use it regularly?

Uh, I used to ALWAYS carry a little calendar with me. I’d buy one in spite of the bland baby animal cover art. You know what I’m talking about? The little monthly calendar with a picture of some kittens in a basket or a sad bassett hound puppy? Hint…The puppy looks sad, because he couldn’t get a better gig than posing for this lame calendar cover. (Update on that puppy: He’s very well off and happy now. He’s one of the world famous poker playing dogs.)

3. Would you say that your desk is organized right now?

Well, uh, I can at least see the desk underneath all the junk.

4. Do you alphabetize cds, books, and dvds, or does it not matter?

I do organize and alphabetize things like that. Like I said, I try to be organized. But, do they stay alphabetized? No, not for long. I love music, so cds don’t have much of a chance of staying in any kind of order. Books do to some degree, because a lot of books are only worth one read.

5. What’s the hardest thing you’ve ever had to organize?

Oh, I think moving from one place to another is an organizational challenge. I always think moving will be easier if I box and label everything really specifically, and I’m super anal about it. But, you know, there are always those things that just refuse to be categorized – the items that are politically correct and don’t like “labels”. For example the change jar, the “junk drawer” and all the stuff my husband keeps around that I don’t even recognize. So, there is always some stuff that should probably be thrown out but inevitably gets tossed into a box labeled “What’s This Crap?”
