|my new desk, via my friend judy horton|
I just spent seven straight hours, in addition to two this morning, trying to format a book I'm self-publishing for kindle. If you have never tried this, don't. I am admitting defeat and have turned to taskrabbit.
Do you all know of taskrabbit? You can get anybody to do anything: pack, clean your house, fix your plumbing, plan a party, take your stuff to the dump, deliver a dozen jelly donuts, drive you to the airport, transport a desk. You can post a price and the first person that meets it gets the job or you can accept bids. (I think that's how it works).
To that end, I hired a very nice "taskrabbit" (that's what they call themselves) named Ian to move THIS very desk...was it just last week? Time is moving very slowly these days...or is it very quickly...
Anyway, no sooner did the beautiful new desk and matching little cabinet (!) get set up than I decided to leave town for 10 days. At least.
So as of Thurs. morning I'm out in Palm Springs and I really feel that is best for everybody, including the entire city of L.A.
|that panel underneath required two trips for the special hardware,|
a phillips screwdriver, and a corner of my brain that blew up
as I was trying to put the thing together
Oh it is hard to be human!
|this is the first time in twenty years I actually have a large, sturdy comfortable desk.|
so far it is very well organized!
