I was kissing Valentino by a crystal-blue Italian stream - Diary of a Necromancer
Excuse me, I'm making perfect sense, you're just not keeping up

  • New Thing Learned for 21 January: The drapery hardware was marked "R" and "L" for a reason, and it is not interchangable. Eventually I got this sorted out, but it would have been nice if they'd said something about it on the package. [Source: trial and error.]

  • New Thing Learned for 22 January: Rudolph Valentino liked to box, and once challenged a reporter who'd called him a pansy to a fight. That reporter declined, but another took him up on it later, and Valentino knocked him out. [Source: History Channel International, "International Profiles".]

As one might guess from the first item above, we've finally gotten around to putting up some window treatments, or at least got the hardware for them installed, since the shades themselves are still in the workroom waiting for me to finish putting the strings back on them after they got washed and ironed (everything fabric in this house has to be preemptively cleansed of sizing before I can go anywhere near it). We originally bought these Roman shades shortly after we moved in, once I had had time to note that my bedroom could use a bit more on the windows at night than just the default blinds, but we're only now feeling spurred to get off our butts about actually tackling the mammoth chore of hanging them because the onset of true winter has revealed that this bedroom is damn good and chilly as well and needs that extra layer of fabric for its insulating capacity. ("Thermal windows", my ass.) I'm spending many nights this week, including this one, making good on my resolution about getting out of the house more, but hopefully by the end of the week I should have checked this task off the master "...And you moved in how long ago?" list, and we can move on to either Making Sense Of My Closet, or Damn You, Animal, Did You Have To Wreck The Blinds That Show for our next home-improvement project.
