No harm done. I opened the cupboard and the top hinge & top screw of the bottom hinge completely disengaged. I held it shut with my left hand, not wanting to strip the bottom screw hole, reached to the drawer with my right hand, pulled out my convertable screwdriver, swapped to a standard head, and unscrewed the screw all one-handed. Felt very studly about the whole maneuver, primarily because my kitchen drawer was pleasingly in order with the screwdriver right there where it should be.
Lovely old bar at Golden Gate Antiques
Another nice piece in this style in the front window, but a bit more 50's in the decor
When I'm stressed (yesterday was a crappy day; it's bad enough to have someone leap to unfounded conclusions, worse when they blog it as fact) I find it very soothing to put something in order. Since my life is actually pretty great right now and things are ticking over well at work, the CDs got the attention.
There's a big stack of soundtracks/cast recordings, compilations, jazz, and classical out of frame to the left.
These CDs now represent my real iTunes collection. The stuff I've wound up not liking – rating it lower & lower and then deleting it – is listed on lala.com and in a box in the living room ready to be shipped out when someone wants it.
Original price well over $200.
Even Halcyon wouldn't look good in this.
I like the rear view mirror image as well. This came out pretty well considering I hadn't even looked while I took it.

I love spring.
No, really, I could stop any time.
(I do like that I now have a pair for every day of the week).

(obscurely positioned where most do not see it: )
The reasonable man adapts himself to the world, the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man.

I've had this quote up at work for at least the last two jobs.
clean sheets & pillowcases, freshly made bed, drawers full of clean clothes.
On the left, The Cheap Pillow. Ikea. $7. And I like it better than the pricy one.
On the right, Joe says, "The Good Pillow". a.k.a. the $125 pillow. a.k.a. the After You've Spent Over $2K On A Bed You're Shell-Shocked Enough To Be A Sucker pillow.
My part-time housemate Shannon just introduced me to 43 Things. It’s a wonderful site for talking about your goals and dreams. Very cool, very encouraging.
I’ve already added 20 things to my list.
