I like how "nove" followed by an exclamation point looks like "novel."

9 years of blogging pretty much adds up to a novel.

A couple of weeks ago I wrote about a large stack of printed pages mostly from TTaT that I hadn't touched in years and was tired of looking at.

I decided to recycle them, so I started flipping over the pages looking for blank sides I could use to print on again. The first few pages had all already been printed on both sides. And then I came across a story I'd forgotten that made me smile to see it.

This is my book, I thought to myself.

And then I knew what to do with it. I grabbed some colored sheets of paper which I loosely folded in half to keep the various sections separate. Then I got my Really Useful Box, sized for a ream of paper but holding parts of a Lego ship instead.

I consolidated the Legos in another container. I put my book in the box and put the box back on the shelf.

It may be neglected, but it's safe.

Happy 9th blogiversary, TTaT!

  1. Happy blog anniversary. If you wanna unload those LEGO bricks, I can provide an address.

    1. Thanks, Kevin! I actually did unload about half the Legos I had which freed up some space. My brother had claim, but since he didn't even thank me for washing them all and packing them up in their original boxes, if I ever decide to get rid of the rest, I'll keep you in mind.
