I did not get much decluttering done this week - too busy with other things to give it a lot of time.
I did take 5 books and about a weeks worth of newspaper to B2P - I use newspaper in packing.
Three different books came back with me in a little case labeled Hogwarts Library. These showed up in the workroom, and I remembered one of the prison libraries asked for them, so they will go in the big plastic box in the garage awaiting the next book pickup.

I did putter around throwing away little sample-size bottles of hand lotion left from travel, that I somehow thought I would squeeze the last drops out of. They had been sitting around for months. I also threw away a lot of little packets of sample skin treatments that came in catalogs I got in the mail. I clearly was not going to try them, so out they went. It's part of that It Might Come In Handy Some Day that causes a lot of saving of objects for no good reason. I need to apply the same clear out process to my makeup drawer, with stuff I bought but never used much. None of this makes a lot of new space, but at least it helps clear surfaces.

I created [community profile] 10variations for Dreamwidth because it was an old concept from Livejournal that I used to love and many people felt inspired by, and I thought it would be nice to recreate it for a better, safer and cleaner platform like Dreamwidth :3

It's a community where you post a batch of 10 icons each time, made out of the same image but all different (according to a set of themes). It's best if you look at the profile to understand the concept! I hope you will like it and participate, I will participate also :3

Good read. Just finished it last night.

Did anyone else find Dr Webb really, REALLY unethical, or was it just me?

I'm losing track of the days of the week here! Pretty sure it's Tuesday somewhere (possibly even here!) and even if it's not, it is definitely some point around the middle of the week. And with that in mind, it's time to tackle the one thing that's been lurking.

What's your goal for this week?

100+ (ongoing) SUCIDE SQUAD HERE.
[personal profile] penta posting in [community profile] factfinding

OK, so, for a completely separate RP than my last few posts (still set in an AU of the "Ender's Game" universe, but still), the characters are going to be going to UN Headquarters in New York. Basic theme is that because they're superintelligent and multilingual, they're being loaned by the International Fleet for a bit as (to quote a previous post in this DWRP PSL) "...a translator, protocol monkey, interpreter, and escort to VIPs at the UN" - basically, since they're both on Earth for reasons, and they both live in or near NYC, this is how they earn additional funtime on Earth until everybody decides it's time to send them to their next stop, ICly.

Questions I have re UN Headquarters:

1. What exactly is security like? I've never been to the UN IRL, so I don't even know the basics like "Do they make you have special badges" or "Are the security people armed usually". Not looking for deep details, just what someone working there wou

2. When heads of state (like POTUS for example) come to visit the UN, do they bring their own translators/interpreters, or does the UN provide em?

3. New York gets *cold* in the winter (I know, I live in New Jersey), and the UN campus being right along the East River...Yeah I prefer not to think about what the wind does. Does the UN campus have underground tunnels for movement of people on those stupid cold (or, in the summer, stupid hot) days, or is movement between buildings all via the outdoors?

4. Bonus question, maybe someone here's worked at the UN: How good, or bad, are the staff cafeterias at the UN, and how expensive are they (compared to eating out in NYC usually...)?

Sources tried: Google ("UN Headquarters" and following links from there), UN.org, Wikipedia on UN Headquarters.

Someday in the Whoniverse, an evil alien invading force will threaten to disable humanity's defensive capabilities by making humans remember all of the invasions that they've bizarrely forgotten about. When people are forced to notice things like the gaping hole in Big Ben, the weird monuments, the work camps, the missing family members, the damage to personal property, etc., humanity will be reduced to quivering catatonia.

Context has identified a minor plot hole.

adair: stack of books (books)
[personal profile] adair posting in [community profile] unclutter
It's late on Friday, but I said it was a day I could post, so here we go.

I did my big declutter on Monday, moving 22 banker's boxes of books from my garage to another way across town for a book pickup by 3 Illinois prison librarians. 3Rs is a local organization that trys to get books for these libraries - Illinois provides them with NO money, and has not since 2001. I had been collecting books from want lists for about 8 months, and Tuesday was pickup day for them. They all took a good many books, but left plenty as well. My friend whose garage we used will need to get someone to haul them to Books to Prisoners, another organization we take part in, so we can possibly sell them at the fall book sale.

For your interest, fantasy series books are very popular. I managed to collect a complete set of Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time for one library, and got a lot of other books for the others.

I have a pile of books for B2P and 3Rs in one corner of my living room. My next project is to sort these and get them moved either to a big plastic box in my garage or to the B2P sorting room. This last has to be done in stages, since I will carry them on the bus in big cloth bags and I can only do one or two of these at a time. I have a couple of stacks of the first to go assembled, and will carry them off on Tuesday.

Timeless!

OPENING JUNE 15
Welcome to Moray Beach
Maybe you were having an ordinary day, doing ordinary things.
Or, maybe, your day was in fact extraordinary, and you're kind of busy and, really, don't have time for any nonsense.
Unfortunately, all of that is gone.
Welcome to Moray Beach. Welcome to your fresh start.
18+ | multigenre | multifandom


Moray Beach is a game set on a tropical island paradise populated entirely by displaced characters. Through some glitch of time and space, they have ended up here, and here they will stay for as long as the island wills it.

A game for mature and seasoned players, it follows basic tenants of fun, respect, and honesty. Player anonymity is protected without question, and abusive and dramatic behaviour will not be tolerated. The goal is low moderation, high activity, and a place for all of us to just, well, play.

Whether you're looking for serious plot, horror or thriller storylines, or even just slice-of-life hijinks, Moray Beach will accommodate you.
