Regular Althouse readers know that I have been struggling to hang six blinds since last November. [ADDED: I mean five six-foot blinds.] Each one has been its own little trial. Many curses were cursed. Many days, when there was no progress at all, I felt sad to see the electric drill and the paint-spattered stepladder still in my room. These inappropriate-for-the-bedroom items disturbed my sleep and invaded my dreams. And now the long winter nightmare is over. I finally got the last blind up!
