In which the author tells you how to run your life -- or at least how to make the most of the fun parts of it.

For instance, inside these pages you will learn how to weather a mortar attack in good spirits; how to avoid booking yourself on the Internet into a bed and breakfast full of twee quilts and dusty tchotkes; and how to plan a dinner party that will stun your guests with deliciousness and style and not destroy your will to live with the amount of work you have to do to pull it off.

These are things I know firsthand, and things people who know me often ask me about (though I usually just book them into bed and breakfasts myself -- identifying ruffled death traps is an acquired skill). I am almost always right about everything (food, style and travel-related, anyway, and often many other things) and if everyone would just do as I say, dinner would taste better, cupcakes would not be dry, your parties would be more fun (for you), and mortar attacks... well, they always suck. I can't do anything about them.

*except laundry. I can't manage my own laundry, much less yours.

I Loves Me Some Hooks

I think this might be what Martha calls a Good Thing?

I have issues with coats and jackets (too many of them and I love them all and my coat closet is beyond full of coats) and shoes (hate to wear them) and bags (several, hate to throw them out, usually hanging over my banister).

So this is my answer! a few hooks on the stairway... the entry to the house is the stairwell just below. It's where I kick everything off (shoes, coats, bags). One of the hooks is for my keys, one for bags (gym bag, work purse, casual purse), and the other is for the jacket of the day. Except there are at least 3 jackets on each hook currently. It's a problem. But hooray! a place to hang shizzle up! I feel very proud. Only took 2 minutes per hook and I think it looks cool. Shippy. As in a ship captain might like it.
