Welcome to the world of the Vincent D'Onofrio obsessed - and a bit of real life thrown in.

Getting there

One of the reasons why my picture-capping is not as comprehensive as I would like, especially where Vincent's films are concerned, is that they have been in boxes which were then piled up in my living room. There was a lot of rearranging to do to even get to the box I thought what I wanted was in, and then there was a good chance it wasn't the correct box.

On Sunday I moved the boxes into the spare room, where I took this picture.

Then I just had to wait for this afternoon for the arrival to the answer to all my problems (I hope) - this 6ft bookcase.

I've been emptying the boxes on to the shelves since it arrived just before 3pm. I'm trying to colour code the cases of seasons 6-8 until I get the chance to print out some of the covers Eliza has created recently.
Don't you love the cork insulation in the recess?
Especially the swathe cut through it over the years by bird beaks...
I've managed to fit some books on the shelves, some computer programmes, and a few empty cases and blank DVDs as well. Just one more shelf to go, and only about 300 books to fit on to it.
Meanwhile, I have finally installed my printer driver on to this computer (the disc is long missing, so I had to download it) so that I can also print some Vincent calendars.
Sadly, I also have to find time to work :-(

It looks great, and I'm sure alot of hard work. But it's a labor of love, isn't it.

It is a lot of work now, but think how great you'll feel once it's all done and organized!!!

jojo, you got there before me - it is a great feeling getting things sorted - you'll be admiring your handiwork for ages and also, i bet, kicking yourself for not doing it sooner

It looks great!

Real life sucks when it gets in the way of VDOing.

Well done, Val.
Am I the only one here who is unorganized?

It's a veritable shrine! One well worth the effort, I might add!

I wish I could get my things organized...
