Fact 1: My partner and I have a very equitable deal: he cooks, I wash the dishes. Cooking is more labor, but much more fun. Washing the dishes doesn't take as long, but can be rather mind-numbing.

Fact 2: I have a lot of CDs. They are in CD binders/shoe boxes/pretty-looking wicker boxes/a disorganized heap depending on when I bought them. My CD collection is like an ocean to me: vast, nice to look at, but with unknown depths.

Idea: I will use the time I spend washing dishes every day to plumb the depths of my music collection, starting with the oldest CDs and working forwards in time. The result will be happier dish-washing, and, if all goes well, an interesting jaunt through my musical tastes of the past.

Welcome to the Dishes Project.
