Today has been full. I spent about five hours collecting cans (and picking up a bit around the edges). There's going to be a metric assload of stuff going to the curb on Monday! Which is good, albeit frazzling, as when one bag tipped over in the driveway and a bunch of cans slid under my car. Ended up with two bags in the trunk, three in the backseat and a contractor bag in the passenger seat; I could barely see out the window.
The Universe decided to fuck with me; had a cop get behind me at the first light on the main drag and follow me ALL the way out to the turn-off toward the industrial park. Got stopped at every single goddamn light, all five of them. Sweat bullets, then he kept going west on 524 and I took a deep breath and headed on to the recycling center
I think I set a new personal record: 43.5 pounds of cans, netting me $23.93. If I'd scrounged the bottom of the back seat, I probably could've rounded it up to $24.
Came home, showered, headed to the church for movie night. The original schedule called for "Despicable Me", but the owner of the DVD had loaned it to someone who misplaced it. We ended up watching "Megamind", which I really enjoyed. Hell, I'd get it just for the soundtrack, which was heavy on 80s metal, no pun intended.
Something odd happened while I came home and checked my e-mail---someone knocked on my office window. My first thought was BC; unannounced visits are totally his modus operandi. No, it was Mb and her SO with his service dog, Jazz. (Insert gratuitous Akita shot here)
You may not be aware of it, but thanks to the Americans With Disabilities Act, a service animal can go anywhere a member of the public can go. Apparently the staff of Golden Corral and members of the Palm Bay police department aren't aware of this, because Jazz, SO and Mb were evicted from the restaurant this evening, and per Mb, All Hell is fixing to break loose. They wanted to talk with J, who is something of an authority on this subject. I rang her up on her new iPhone number and they got to talking. There is talk of calling news channels and the local paper about this blatant violation of the ADA and Mb has also left a message for her lawyer.
While SO was detailing the events of the evening, I finally got to unwrap the wall hanging I've been waiting for. I guess I know what I'm going to be busy with tomorrow---putting a backing on it and getting it ready to hang. (At this point, it's a 9"x13" tapestry rectangle.) I can present it to its intended recipient on Sunday, and I will of course snap a pic and post it for you all to see.
They departed, and I went in and watched SPN. God bless the DVR! Highly awesome ep in many ways, although parts of it were very OMG!WTF?!BBQ!!!
In a little bit, I'm going to wander in and watch Blue Bloods
That's my day.
