Nail Power

I painted my nails in Chocolate Nut last night. I did this after doing dishes and laundry and Pledge-wiping every exposed inch of furniture in the house. Love Pledge wipes. Love the smell. I appreciate their dust removal capacity as well as the citrusy smell they leave on my fingers. Aside from that, I don't really know what furniture polish is for.

I did not have the foresight, however, to know that I would be standing on a ladder in the rain this morning, using a garden trowel to degunk the downspouts in my gutters. That wasn't really what damaged my manicure, though. It was the "Nail Power" adhesive I used to glue my bulletin board back together this morning.

It's like, 2 feet by 3 feet and I found it very useful once I removed the ancient phone lists and tacked up my postcards of Thailand. On Friday, I was arranging current phone lists on it when the frame disintegrated in my very hands and the whole thing fell off the wall.

My boss said I could buy a new one, but I felt that I could save this one, even though it was missing one of its hangy things. I brought the Nail Power from home, as well as some nails and some hangy things. I remember wondering on Friday why the board had been hung vertically, and whether it would be more useful to me horizontal. However, the glue was already drying with the makeshift hangy things positioned for vertical arrangement when I remembered that I had an alternative.

And now I can't figure out for the life of my why anyone would want their bulletin board hung vertically.

**Oh for crying out loud. I just found the actual hangy thing in my rolodex.
