Well, I'm the first to admit I'm a nerd. And I've discovered that there may really be no limit to my nerdiness.
This is my current compulsion: I'm organizing my pattern collection. I bought two file crates, lots of hanging files, and some file pockets. I've printed out labels that categorize by pattern manufacturer (as an initial or initials), pattern number, broad category, and short description of the contents. I've alphabetized by the broad category in these files, with further sub-divisions by pattern number. The file pockets are for each individual piece of clothing from each pattern. I've almost finished organizing them, too.
Ok, I'll stop now, since I know I've clearly illustrated how compulsively nerdy I can be.
Too bad I'm not that organized with my house. Hah!
In other news, Wednesday of last week, the officer who wrote us the warning came over after Matt sent an email to the city requesting a copy of the city codes that pertain to our home. He was quite nice, actually, and explained that there is a neighborhood-watch-type program to make our area nicer, or something like that. We asked him quite a few questions, and he paged a city code enforcer person who came over and answered even more questions.
Thursday I hung out with friends, and then Matt ran Phlan on Friday, which was fun as usual. Saturday had Matt and I back out at faire, and I actually danced a court dance! It was great fun! Sunday was nice and relaxing.
Tomorrow is a DFWCG meeting, and I'm really looking forward to it! Matt has volunteered to do the site for us, so I'm thinking of dragging him along so he can get his questions answered. I'm also toying with quite a few costume ideas, which I really need to make time for, like my 1700s highwayman, my Elizabethan noble, and now I'm toying with a gypsy idea. I am thinking I want to base it around a ghawazee coat like annawick
's, which I love.
