More Random Stuff You Never Wanted to Know About My Life

The door to my computer room is broken. Well, I call it the computer room because, uh, it's the room where the computer is. That being far and away its most important feature. But it's also partially a library (because the only room in my house that isn't partially a library is the bathroom), and partially a storage space. Anyway, the door seems to have swollen or gotten out of alignment or something, because it won't latch unless you pound it into place, and if you do pound it into place, it becomes very difficult to get it open again. Indeed, when I tried it, I managed to pull the round doorknob part of the doorknob clean off, and had to pound it back on with a hammer.

This would not be a problem, except that if the door doesn't latch, the cats can open it. And if the cats can open it, they can come in. And if they come in, they can pull all the cables out of the computer and knock all the books off the shelves and get into the big haphazardly stacked piles of junk in which there are all kinds of opportunities for them to get trapped or squished. Of course, what I'm really afraid of is them ordering hundreds of dollars worth of cat toys on the internet.
