8 minute post on why I'll never be a poet.

I'm rearranging the apartment now: Desk stays in big room, bed moves there too, Wingbacks and TV move to small room, where the closet is. Bookcase moves with chairs, even though it's across the room. Not now. Everything that's going has been compressed together so I can move the bed in. I keep telling myself one table has to stay with the bed, but I can't figure out which one. It makes sense to leave the table that's in the old bedroom there, it'll fit over the bookcase I'll have a new dimension of books, but the other table goes with the chairs. I think of them as a unit. The only alternative I imagine, other than placing the chairs back-to-winged-back (Drama!) is buying a new table for the chairs or my bedside. It hasn't even occurred to me that I could move, like, the drawer that's next to my desk until now, or you know, something like that. Maybe fix that table I found. Modules and obsessions. Eight minutes.

This post made me think of a book you should check out (and made me remember I still need to buy this book!). It's called TV Sets: Fantasy Blueprints of Classic TV Homes by Mark Bennett. It came out a while back. (Amazon says 2000.) I bought it as a gift for one of my interior designer friends. (I'm a little enamored with interior design.) Anyway, it's a fun book. It has blueprints for the Brady home, the Cleaver home, the Jetson's...good stuff.
