We’re all on death’s door repeatedly ringing the doorbell, like maniacal girl scouts trying to make quota.



Quick update for everyone, hopefully I’ll be back with more soon.  First up, get ready for Bowtie Tuesdays, returning in September!  So for now, learn how to tie a bowtie with Bill Nye:

Apartment Therapy goes over how to disguise video games on a book shelf.  Seems like a lot of work, but I guess if you’re going for a certain look, go for it.

That’s it for now, but I’ll hopefully be back soon!
