...Well, maybe less "cleaning" and more "organizing." (Though I have spent a lot of time with my dust cloth.) My past week has looked like this:

  • mail sorted (junk tossed; useful things filed [actually filed, not just set on file box], former pile on file box sorted and filed
  • manga (all of this year's purchases) sorted and shelved; Japan 2013 manga integrated into greater collection
    (three boxes moved from shelves to closet)
  • Japan 2013 doujinshi cataloged, sorted, and filed
  • DVDs organized and shelved (including ones that had been in a crate since basement renovations last year)
  • new drama CDs ripped to computer and shelved (mostly extras that came with Dear+ issues)
  • Japan 2013 special booklets cataloged [in progress]

Due to the length of time it takes to enter special booklet data, I'm only about a third of the way through that, I think. I'm dreading the Libre "booklets" (can we really call them "booklets" when they're so big I'm planning to shelve them with artbooks?) of 5000 authors each writing a two page story. Once I finish with that, I plan to catalog my artbooks (somehow have never entered those in my database). After that, I'll have to move on to something less fun, like clothes or the bathroom cabinet. (*bleh* to both of those, but it needs to get done.) I also need to dust, and if you think that doesn't sound like a huge project, you've never seen how many knick-knacks I keep on the tops of my bookshelves.

Also, I officially have a doujinshi problem. I did manage to get them all put away, but I'm honestly concerned about the integrity of the file cabinet that holds them. The bottom drawer is alarming in its unwillingness to move; it scrapes the floor almost the whole time, rather than only when pulled out all the way, like it used to. I definitely need to do some purging, and it's been a while since I did a doujinshi purge, so I almost certainly have some I could get rid of, but, well, purging is sad. This would be a first-stage purge (just moving them to my closet), but still. (I should note that the manga mentioned above was moved to the closet only for storage purposes; most of that is stuff I don’t want to get rid of.)

Anybody have a spare house I could borrow? Mine is out of space.

In other news, I talked my parents into getting me a good rice cooker for my birthday. What happened was this: I ordered myself a tofu press so I can make fresh tofu. And I was imagining how good fresh tofu would taste, and I how could have a meal of just rice and nori and tofu, and then I realized, crap, our rice cooker SUCKS. It burns the rice every dang time. (Never buy American rice cookers. Waste of money.) So...new rice cooker. This one, chosen over the "umami" model mostly because of the retractable cord, though the slow cooker setting WAS tempting.
