Pardon me while I spew mucus

So my head is completely stopped up. I sound like freakin' Droopy Dog in my voice over sessions, and sleep is irregular at best. I feel somewhat better today though... we'll see.

The new bedroom furniture was delivered yesterday (Violet's coverage here) and it looks great. The room is freshly painted and I transferred my underwear to the proper drawers.

Anybody else have a sorting routine for your clothes? Some might think I take it too far... I have one drawer for v-neck t-shirts, another for crew-necks, another one for colored t-shirts, still a separate drawer for t-shirts with words or art on them. Then I have separate drawers for white and colored socks, and separate drawers for boxers and boxer/briefs. I am a very organized person.

My closet is separated into different sections - one for plaid short-sleeve shirts, one for hawaiian vacation shirts, still another for long-sleeved shirts of all colors, another for only white long-sleeved shirts. A section for jeans, a section for black pants, and yet another section for khaki pants. I take from the right, put back to the left, and when the item has been worn twice (or once if I've been to Chevy's) I put it in the dry-clean or dirty clothes hamper. (those are separate too)

I generally try to pay bills twice a month. Today's bills include mortgage, credit card, child support, electricity, car, Hummer, Sam's Club, condo fee, phone bill. Jeezus, I need to learn moderation...

Speaking of, it's time to turn in my leased BMW. When I first got it, I needed two cars. For the past 6 months, I've barely driven it. I totally love this car - it's a 745Li with every option known to man. It goes zero to sixty in 4-point-something, has the greatest sound system I've ever heard, and has been the car I wanted for most of my life. I'm glad I got it.

Having said that, being rid of it will result in massive extra money per month, which I'm fairly sure Violet will want me to spend on bling. (she's not really that type)

I really want a two-seat convertible for the summer, maybe I'll make a move when it gets warm. I just need a fun warm-weather car of some kind... and it doesn't look like we're getting the VW Microbus I wanted.

I have a drawer for tank tops, t-shirts, pajama and sweat pants, a separate drawer for all pool t-shirts and work clothes, a drawer for panties and underwear, one for dress socks and one for athletic socks. Hanging clothes are divided into pants, skirts, casual shirts and dress shirts. Within the closet, the clothes are organized by color, in the order of ROYGBIV...

Hmmm.... I wonder what it all means that we are both this way?

You are not alone...

Bottom rack gets lounge pants and sweats, jeans, casual slacks and dress slacks. Top rack gets pjs, long sleeve t-shirts, sweatshirts and sweaters. I don't worry about hanging dresses, since I don't own any.

Sometimes I sort by color, but I'm not usually good at maintaining that kind of order.

My drawers are similar to yours. (heehee)

I try to keep the closet separated on MY side....Mike's is something to be desired. He only uses one drawer, for socks. everything else is in the closet or the bathroom. He's got 3 drawers that are full of crazy swim trunks, drunkfest tees and the such. I think there is a pot leaf, dread lock hat in there too.

Speaking of warm weather....you need a vacation in Mexico before you need a new car....just sayin' ;o)

Hmm. Unfortunately, I don't have that many drawers. But I do sort my hanging clothes by color. And you wanna see organization, you should take a gander at my PC's directory structure sometime! We're talking major satisfaction with how precisely I have it laid out to suit my needs. I think I am the only one at my job who saves and archives every single e-mail, too, sorting them into one of six main folders containing roughly 15 subfolders. Even the stupid ones get saved. I hate having even a single unsorted e-mail cluttering my inbox!

Gee, Dave, strike for the environmental goals: get a bicycle.

You and Violet both have raging cases of OCD. Take it from the currently well-medicated poster child.

And duh, she needs bling for the awesome new BLING DRAWER!

Yes, I did look up "anal retentive" in the dictionary and saw your picture. I thought you were just kidding about that.

I toss stuff across the room and if it happens to make it into an open drawer - so be it. Okay, perhaps I'm not quite that bad. Tis true, however, that I haven't enough drawers to be quite as organized (I'm being nice) as you.
Cripes.
Oh, and I wouldn't be seen walking down the same street as a man with a hawaiian shirt on - vacation or no. :)
