Well its here. It is Valentines Day, to B's dismay [he thinks its a hallmark holiday, which its not] it's arrived, and we have made plans to do nothing about it.

And by storage problem, I mean there are five total closet and I still lack places to put things. I tend to be a hoarder, as my roommate would say. I have four grocery bags full of corks but that's for another post. Today is about my b0ok hoarding problem.
