Dewey Donation 2008 Book Drive – Anyone who loves books can relate to the sense of wonder and hope they can create in children’s lives…. and adult lives too of course. Every year the Dewey Donation System chooses a library in need and provides lists and purchase options for books and other supplies desperately needed. You can even choose specific books that you loved growing up. The drive is supporting two libraries this year!

Love Carrots (via Garden Monkey) – Because I am not too mature or above having a good laugh over phallic vegetables… or cacti.

I recently purchased these extra-fancy file folders with a botanical/woodgrain design under the delusion that having pretty folders to look at everyday would inspire hyper-organization of my desk space. A pack of six folders cost $9 CDN which is pretty outrageous when you think about it — “thinking” being an activity I tried not to do as I forked out the cash.
On the flip-side I did refile everything, shredding a stack of old, useless papers and eliminating the ever-present pile o’ crap in the process, so we’ll see how it goes.
