  • Mood:


Despite being in a massive blue funk, I was moderately productive last night. I sanded the components of the last bookcase, then dry-fit it all and drilled the pilot holes for the screws. Also cut the last of the beadboard back panels, so tonight all I have to do is haul it upstairs, and glue & screw it together. Then I can start staining them.

When I got back, BitTorrent had finished delivering the latest Buffy, so I watched it, then read a bit more of The Silmarillion and went to sleep.
