No one actually gives a flying red fuck what fools like you do or do not read,
fuckwit.

And even someone as stupid as you should have noticed
that killfiles work without announcing their content.

Really!?!?!  LOL  Please forgive an attempt to help folks organize a task that
need doing in most temperate climates. ;^o

In your world, what is the meaning of the letters OCD?

No it doesnt. Anyone with a clue has enough closet space so they
dont have to fart around like that every time the seasons change.

Agreed.  Though I often wish I was as organized as these symptoms listed above.
If you can not find something, then it is the same as not owning it.  In the
long lost ten years of living alone, I knew where everything was because I was
the only person using the tools or what ever.  Now I have a husband and four
children, rules are being made about suitable locations to leave tools and other
items.

Another disorder possibly in your world would be my habit of trying to pick up
something from the area I am leaving that belongs in the area I am going.  For
me, this is a way to attempt at keeping order in the house and on the farm.  It
is also a way to keep from making more trips than necessary, walking is a
problem for me.  Too many trips back and forth are a waste of time and energy
for anyone.

OP?

The 'elaborate organization' was described in order to be clear in intent.
These newsgroups are read by folks all over my country and other countries.  I
am well aware, having moved from the Mid-West to the Old South, that there exist
variances in use of language.  I was attempting to be very clear.

Absolutely classic OCD.

You'll get one hell of a surprise when you discover who gets to pick your
nursing home.

Or you could actually get a clue and realise how much
time and energy you keep wasting with your OCD.

All you made clear is that you have one hell of a problem with OCD.

I take it that you are at odds with the idea of 'a place for everything
and everything in its place' at the end of the day.  Poor you - you must
waste a hell of a lot of time looking for stuff that, if you kept the
place tidy, you could put a hand to without even thinking about it.
This is how I like to be, but I don't always achieve it.  I don't
belittle those who are as I would like to be.  I don't have enough
clothes to bother with the storage problem for them, but I do exactly
the same sort of thing with my seasonal use items like the jam cauldron
and the jelly straining bag, the fish kettle and the Christmas pudding
bowls, my mincemeat jars and other seasonal kitchen items: when not in
use, they go 'away' in the high cupboards, the back of the overspill
cupboard, and 'up the shed'.  When in use, they are right there in the
kitchen being used.  They go away in their proper places when finished
with so I can find them again.

I do the same with the sewing machines I take into schools for lessons,
the 12 pairs of dressmaking scissors, all the threads and ribbons and
laces and see-through stuff and beads and irons and pressing cloths and
paper scissors and wotnots that go with teaching classes.  When done, I
tidy them all away, being sure they have been cleaned, oiled, and have
all their kit with them.  The one machine I neglected last time lost its
bobbin case, costing me a tenner to replace it.  Silly error on my part
- a little more obsession with tidying up the kit properly would have
saved a shedload of time hunting for it and some hard earned dosh.

I taught in schools for many years.  At the end of the day I had the
room perfectly tidy, the work for the following day set out on my desk
for all the classes, the books marked and the paper boxes filled,
equipment such as videos and TV booked where necessary, and everything
right there so my classes ran smoothly, and, should I not be there,
whoever took my class for me had everything from paper and pens to
textbooks and worksheets right there for the students to use.  Does this
level of organization make me ill?  Or did it mean I was a better
teacher than the one down the hall who never remembered to book the
telly, who's desk was such a heap he could never find his register
without hunting for it, and who wasted so much time getting stuff ready
IN class rather than before class that his students switched off and
behaves badly while they waited for him to catch up?

I no longer have a desk that tidy...  I will in a couple of days when it
gets sorted again.  And when I finish in the sewing room, that too will
be equally tidy.  These are my work spaces, and must be clean and clear
for working.  I'd like the rest of my house to be that tidy too, but I
ain't gonna fuss if it isn't, so long as those two blokes tidy up their
stuff for me to clean when I want to.  And so long as it's respectable
enough for customers of mine to come to the house.

Yep, its always been the mantra of the pathetically anal and those with OCD.

Wrong again. I happen to have a very good memory for where
stuff is, and have one hell of a mess that amazes visitors who see
me put my hand on what I am talking about or what they want to
borrow effortlessly, even when it hasnt been used for 30+ years.

More fool you. What matters is how much time you waste obessively
moving stuff to its 'place' even if you do have a poor memory.

Its completely stupid to consider just one side of the time/effort equation.

Only those with a severe mental problem do.

You clearly dont have a clue about what real efficient use of your time is about.

Makes a hell of a lot more sense to have adequate storage for
what you do use so you dont have to waster your time like that.

And even you should be able to find them when you need them if you
had enough of a clue to have adequate storage where they are used.

Some beer needs ageing, but I'm not sure it needs that long...  Must
re-read The Drawing of the Dark by Michael Scott Rohan.  My lovely
Matusalem Very Old Sweet Oloroso is aged for 30 years in the cask.
Yummmmmmm...

Nor would beer be aged in the bottle, if it were to be aged.  But after
aging, does it remain beer, or does it become some other beverage?

I wasn't thinking of bottled beers, though some live bottled beers do
age and condition in the bottle...  I was thinking more of the old
fashioned Bavarian dark lagers aged in oak lagering tanks, and some of
the stronger live beers produced that are cask conditioned for a month
or more before being ready to tap.

Ooops: Kate,"The Drawing of the Dark" is a very good SF novel about
beer, amongst other things, by Tim Powers.

To Rod Speed:  You're dead wrong about OCD, and I suspect you might be
compensating.  Kate is definitely not suffering from OCD - neither of us
could live in the same house if she were.

Duh!  Silly me!  I KNEW I should have gone and checked...  It'll make a
nice change to read it again after reading all that Alex Rider stuff at
the weekend!  ;)  Mind you, with over 3000 books in the house, I cannot
be expected to remember who wrote every single one of them, even if I
have read most of them, and a good half more than once!

Murder would be done!  I don't obsess about being tidy...  I just NEED
to be well organized to compensate for the short term memory problems
caused by dyslexia.  And I dislike dirty rooms.  No way can you CLEAN an
untidy place!

Or those of us who own Collie dogs (who need LOTS of outdoor exercise
no matter how muddy it is outside), indoor cats (shedding AND
shredding), and boyfriends who throw cheese in the air (for the
aforementioned fuzzy folk to catch)!!! Scotty's last bath included
(but was definitely not limited to) the removal of dried cheese bits
from his fur!!! :-)
