HEY! I have that Kingston "Clear Your Clutter" book and I have to say, it really did help. Though truth be told I had a stack of others as well. Note the past tense. :)

Joy - I believe it's Kingston's book that suggests certain ceremonies to rid your house of bad chi and energy. Much as I smirked about some of the suggestions, it came to me at a time when I was going through a bad break up. I grimaced doing some of the things but admit that it helped. I've not cracked it in 6-7 years, perhaps a sign it's time for it to find a new home.

Yes, please free yourself of any Oprah crap now! She is so full of it! Well, not always, but often!

personally, I've been quite enamored by the recent tomes celebrating chaos and messiness. I try and I try but I think there's some law of physics working against me!

I have some books like these...I keep them buried on shelves behind other books. When I moved a few months ago, a friend saw one of such books...he accused me of being a Lesbian.

Bryan - Ah, yes, we're overdue a Kristalnacht here.

WAT - Oprah-fee zone here.

Mouse - I would like to embrace chaos and messiness but just can't.

T$ - You a lesbian? Never!

Goddamn. I'm glad I'm not the only one. I've been accused of being a lesbian twice.

Uh, there hasn't already been that snake-eating-its-own-tail moment yet where there's a self-help book about evolving beyond self-help books, has there?

Kudos on installing the screen door, too. It really does keep the spammers out. My verification word is 'ubooktjo', significantly.

Rich - I've been thinking about setting up a recovery program for addicts of 12-step program called "Step 13" or "Addicted to the Cure".

Ubooktjo is what I usually order at Malaysian restaurants. I love it with spicy peanut sauce and saffron rice. Yum.
