"I still need to de-grease the spice rack, but I'm running out of magic orange shit."  
Okay - this seems to be a strong indicator of how I may spend most of time after school. For crying out loud - trading one obsession for another. Yargh! I don't know if it's the Metal J movie, but I think it's close enough ;)

I have finally moved everything belonging to myself out of my old apartment - only 3 months behind schedule. Hence, the current apartment's a little cramped - not uncomforatbly so, but I think I may be giving the books to their recipients, um, this week - or else I may not have room for anything else, and I like breathing a whole bunch.

My mind has calmed down a great deal since last night - it was busy, but not manic. My dreams were manic - they involved cleaning the spice rack in our kitchen, and Shannon Doherty (?), and some kind of sword duel. I think. Maybe I'm wrong.

Here's to a better tomorrow.

PS - I'm not kidding about figuring out how to get candle wax off of wood. I really don't know how to do that, and it's becoming a problem. Or something. Any help appreciated - I imagine it requires freon, peanut butter, or some combination of the above.

my experience, wax doesn't come off much anything. Best bet would be to scrape it off as much as possible with a butter knife or something, then eventually sand and refinish if you care about that piece of furniture.

sorry that doesn't help much.

supposedly you can use damp terry cloth and an iron to wick it up, but I don't know if that would work on wood.

I know how to supposedly get wax off of clothing (stick it in the freezer- supposedly works for gum, too), but furniture? old fashioned scraping for all I know. That's what I've always done anyway. (Although- on the same principal as the clothing-wax solution, wax has a tendency of shrinking quite a bit when cold- you could allow your bedroom to get very cold while you are gone for the day and try to pull off the pieces later.)
