Procrastination

While avoiding homework by looking at porn the other day, I found Benita's very cool display of Pez dispensers in her home in Sweden.  (I think all those cold, dark months constitute a necessary home decorating hobby/job/sanity saver.  It's either that or a rubber room.)

I can't put her picture up here because I'm technologically challenged so click on her name to see it.  Go on, I'll wait.  She even has a Mr. Bean pez thingy!

It reminded me of the library organized by color pics that were all over the porn-o-sphere a few months ago.  I think this is the coolest thing ever and because I have three 8ft. by 4ft. bookcases in my living room, two that size in the playroom plus three smaller ones, a 4ft. by 4ft. one in the hallway and two more of the 8x4 sized ones in daughters room and smaller ones in the Things bedrooms - ALL of which are full of books, I could probably do it to a pretty good effect.

I love the way it looks but keep thinking what a MASSIVE pain in the ass it would be to create.  And maybe how it would drive me batshit crazy to not be able to find a book I wanted when I wanted it?

Or maybe I'm just trying to come up with more ways to procrastinate doing my homework, the laundry, weeding the garden, paying bills, organizing the mudroom.....

I can't even keep my closet organized by color - much less my bookcases. ;-)

You and your fake porn. Gets me every time.

I, too, however, enjoy home decor. But now that we share our home with the in-laws, the joy of it has been reduced quite a bit. Because my MIL always wants to inject her tastes into everything. And how do I describe her tastes? Hmmm. Mid Mexican tacky!

So, I'm better off if I just stick to REAL porn. My MIL has nothing to say about THAT.

Wow! That bookshelf porn definitely did the trick for me. I think I need a cigarette, LOL.

I would pay good money to see you redecorate all those books you have! That would be a good way to procrastinate on the homework and all the other fun household chores!

Most of our books have a white jacket or I'd SO do this... I LOVE procrastinating too!
