SCORING BIG DEEP IN THE TRASH

I went to get a little energy snack over at the corner store to get me through the rest of the night's work, when I stumbeld on an honest-to-goodness trove!

Nothing says, "Perfect for Justin" quite like unfinished wood, and nothing says, "nearly perfect for mangas" quite like a pedestal-topped cd rack:



It's taller than me! I'll keep it near the bed, since it looks like a ladder to heaven, and I've been told my bed is about as far from that as people can get.

So, the rack has the perfect depth — for manga holding — but it's a bit on the thin side. Oh well. I can still fit up to 16 volumes of Hikaro No Go on each of its 12 shelves, for a total of 192 volumes of Hikaro No Go:



—SPOILER ALERT!—

In volume 192, Shindo comesthisclose to beating arch rival Akira Toya for the Meijin trophy. But he won't give up hope and promises that he'll finally defeat his friend, and be named the greatest Go player who ever lived, when next they meet. In Volume 407. In that same volume, Shindo finally realizes that Sai is not a man. I CAN HARDLY WAIT!

Here are the Hikarus peeking out, taunting me with the new rack's inadequacies:



I also got this crazy-ass table:



No, it's not crazy-ass because it's on it's side with it's legs off, it's crazy-ass because it is obsessed with Kelly Lynch's Boxing Helena. No. That's not it. It's crazy-ass because it's some sort of Transformer table. The top flips open and slides over to become a table twice its own width. It's a 36" square table that becomes a 36" x 6' table. That's an 18" overhang on two sides. Is that a recipe for disaster or a personal ad?

Thank you! I'll be here all night! Tip Waders!
