Wanted: filing gnomes

Everyone knows that there are sock gnomes and underpants gnomes. I am hoping that there are some that come around and do your filing. I've got a large, untidy stack (okay, make that stacks) of paperwork around, and SOMEONE has to deal with it.

Sigh.

Maybe it's elves that I want. They're the helpful sort, at least to shoemakers and tailors.

If you find some and they file your papers could you catch them and mail them to me in a box. Don't forget to put airholes--dead house-elves would stink.

I was picturing elves the size of your icon. But if they're really the size of house-elves, I'm gonna need a bigger box.

Uhm...if you're mailing out elves I would like to place an order for THE LORD OF THE RINGS type. Just one will do. Thank you!

Okay. But if Legolas turns up here, I'm not sending him anywhere. I may not be leaving the house again, either.

If you find the filing gnomes, can you send them my way next? I haven't been able to see my desk in a really long time!

I'm looking for help, too. I have one pile that's about 2-feet tall! Are the gnomes/elves tall enough to reach the top of that pile?

Oh, no you don't, you guys! I think I should get the elves. I have 21 years worth of stuff I am trying to sort through and pack up, in 2 months! I'm thinking I need a whole family of them!

Just remember the advice of the organizer folks on TLC and HGTV: If you haven't used it or thought of it in the past 3 years, you don't need it. (Actually, I think they put a shorter time span on that, but three years sounded like an okay time span to me. Or five, if three's too hard)

It's funny, but you are right. I have stuff in the attic that has been there since the kids were little. Now, after 15 years, I throw it away. Silly, silly, silly!

*wanders in*

You have Legolas helping you clean your house?!

Er, did Aragorn show up by chance? I can be over in a flash...

Good luck with the stacks. :)

Step One - Files

Step Two - ?

Step Three - Profit (from publication and reader adoration)

Step Four - send filing gnomes to sruble's house; she has a big stack of papers to file too :0)
