looking for something?

if you've known me for more than a minute you may have heard my expression for what it feels like when i get an idea that just makes sense: 'it's like a white hot hammer of inspiration to the back of the head'

Hurricane season light hack

i know when the power goes out, i still have that instinct to reach for the light switch. 
just got an idea that will work with that instinct. 
for summer storms and hurricane season i always keep some little LED keychain lights around in drawers and on shelves, in most rooms. 
because fumbling around in a dark room on a shelf is such a good idea, that they've been there for months now, just hanging out.

Hello hooks!

hi, my name is catastrophegirl, and i have a flat surface problem

as in, if it's flat, i'll pile things on it. and leave them there. so a few years ago when i bought a house, i started trying to move things onto the OTHER flat surface - the vertical one. specifically, i bought a house for the purpose of being able to make holes in my walls and hang things from them

which all comes down to hooks.
