Recycling – Out!

December 30, 2007

Journal, Lauren

I had a surprisingly productive day. Our house has slowly been filling with recycling, and it was threatening to take over the kitchen and the basement. I got all the boxes broken down and consolidated, and everything loaded into the back of the truck. There were a couple of bags for Goodwill, too, and some things to deliver to Kate out in the country – all that adds up to a trip to Lincoln!

Junk in my trunk, really.

Why Lincoln for recycling? The recycling place in Seward is only open a few hours, three times a week. Our place also doesn’t take glass, so I think I prefer going to Lincoln. (I don’t have to sort out the plastics, either.) The thing I don’t understand is that there’s a sign on the bin that says, “Do not break glass”, but you have to drop the bottles in those holes from head-height, and they fall to the bottom, smashing. What’s up with that?

I don't have anything clever to say here.

To reward myself for being so environmentally responsible and saving the earth, I went and bought a bread knife. Wrapped in plastic.

It almost goes with my other knives.

    It does almost go with your other knives…except for it’s crazy long. Bread knives are like that.

    You could have stuck it into your thigh for display.

    Oooh, ahhh -- pretty knife! I bet Brad could skin a rabbit with it!

    Ouch, I’d watch your back if I were you Lauren … Brad, I changed my mind again, I think you would like “Saw” & “Dexter” too.
    In fact, I suspect you’ve helped write them …
