Hi, reader. I wrote this in 2002 and it's now more than five years old. So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it! I'm keeping this up for historical archive purposes, but the me of today may 100% disagree with what I said then. I rarely edit posts after publishing them, but if I do, I usually leave a note in italics to mark the edit and the reason. If this post is particularly offensive or breaches someone's privacy, please contact me.

I did four loads of laundry last night and now virtually all of my clothes are clean for the first time since I moved. I don't have drawers anymore; all my clothing is viewable at a glance, either on shelves in the porta-closet or on hooks next to it. This has never been true before. It facilitates comparison between items, and "how do I want to look today?" may actually become a relevant question for my mornings. My sister will be glad; I'm not sure whether I will be.
