Chaotic Madness! Unabashed Mayhem!! Extreme Excess!!!

Have you ever gone looking for something...found this, that and the other...until finally you were left to wonder what had started this ill-advised endeavor in the first place? No, I'm not talking about Iraq!

I started out thinking I was going to do nothing more than open a drawer. The next thing I knew I was exploring. Then I began investigating. This led me to sorting, organizing and purging. I now have an office that looks like a staging area.

I still needed to find it. Back to The Writer's Nook. I checked the file drawer; Sorted through the stack of papers on the desk; Went over everything on the bookshelf; Looked on the table. No luck. Well, that wouldn't be entirely true. I found some interesting things, but not what I was looking for.

I keep too much stuff. If you have been reading this blog for any period of time this will not come as news to you. The problem seems to be that however long I keep anything, when it finally reaches the point that I am convinced it will serve no useful purpose and I throw it out...almost immediately a need arises for which that item would serve perfectly.

So, now I think...the information I was looking for must have been in a website I was looking at. I know it's not been that long since I saw it. I would say put my hands on it, but at this point I'm not sure what the it was that started the search. So, now I start going through my bookmarks.

Maybe it was in Firefox instead of IE?

About this time, my IT guy showed up to look at my network. I heard him muttering to himself as he went from one computer to the other.

At this point, there was a long sigh...
