I think one of the best inventions of the 20th Century was the Post-It note. Has to be, they're all over my house to remind me of stuff I can't remember on my own.
I have four of them on my keyboard right now.
COUNTS: As I mentioned last week, I'm going to send out postcards for the large-print edition of Bookplate Special. I went on WorldCat (which tracks books in libraries) and found out where all the large-print editions of Murder Is Binding and Bookplate Special are. I had some notion that I'd figure out what libraries had one, but not the other, and target them. Whoa! Turns out there were 158, and narrowing it down was a lot harder than I thought because not all the library systems had live links. *Sigh*
ORDER POLAR BEAR STAMPS: You got it. When the postcards arrive, I'm going to have to mail them out, and mailing them out means stamps. I ordered the 28 cent stamps and they'll arrive later this week. Guess I can toss that note out now.
LAUNDRY: This note is actually a couple of weeks old. It could stay there forever, if the stickiness holds. I mean, are you ever really done with laundry?
PAGE NUMBERS: I had to print out the labels for the post cards, but I have a memory like a sieve. I didn't now how many labels were still on the roll, so I'd do them in blocks of 25. 1-25; 26-50; 51-75, etc. Guess that one can go, too. (My the keyboard is getting tidier as I write this.)
There are currently ten Post-It notes and 6 other notes attached to the sides of my flat-screen monitor (Oh, and one business card.) One has nothing but the ISBNs for a bunch (not all) of my books. (Need to update that one.) I have passwords, character names, spellings of words I always get wrong, and even a little note that says "I heart (the symbol) you" from my hubby. (That's a keeper!)
No doubt about it, I couldn't live without Post-It notes. How about you?
