DIY with Pinkie - NOT a new HGTV show.

It's Friday afternoon. I'm at work. I'm kinda bored. I have recently moved my office around and my phone is kinda hard to reach right now. So I thought I'd like to hang it on my wall so I could access it easier.

After some help from my co-worker, RitaBarrita, getting the phone's back to lay down the way it needs to in order to be wall mounted, I thought "you know this will be easy to just put up on the wall". RitaBarrita sensibly said that I needed the wall mount. I, without a shred of sensibility, said "I don't need no stinkin' wall mount! I just need two good nails."

So....I found two nails that I thought would do the job and our trusty office hammer, and went to work. The first nail went in nicely. At least it was nice to my standards since I knew it was gonna be covered up anyways. The second nail did not. This is how the second nail turned out.

This is not good.  This is not what I envisioned in my mind.

How am I gonna explain that?  How am I gonna fix it?  I evidently can't hammer a nail in the wall much less fix that mess.

Then I thought..."Well, how can I use this so that they think I meant to do it?"  This is what I came up with.

Stapler holder:

No.  Too hard to get the stapler off the head of the nails.  Next.

Coupon file:

No, I'll never remember to grab them before I go to the store.  I have to put those in my purse.

Lotion holder:

No, I'll probably just make greasy prints on the wall when I put the lotion back.

I know!  Pen holder:

I use that pen way too much to keep it up there.

Really big pencil holder:

"Yes, that's my pencil.  Yes, it's Hello Kitty.  No, you can't borrow it."  That's what I'll be saying all day if I hang that treasure up on the wall.  I am under the belief that there are Hello Kitty coveters in this office.  Trust them not.

Bar Mitzvah Party favor holder:

No.  I have that hanging up already where the partner who gave it to me can see it every time he comes in my office.  Hey, I need all the brown-nosing points I can get around here, thank you very much.

BEST IDEA YET!!!!  Bean picture holder:

Nah, I'm afraid it will fall down behind something and I won't be able to fish it back out.  And that's some of my favorite Bean footage.

In the end, I decided to save my skin and cover today's DIY project up with my To Do List.

I don't think they'll ever know, do you?
