Damn, where’d all my free time go?

I’m sitting here making out our “To Do” list for this weekend, which includes:

  • Putting together new treadmill
  • discarding non-functioning television
  • putting loads of stuff on ebay or craigslist.
  • taking all the recycling to the recycling center
  • laundry, laundry & more laundry
  • Garrett’s birthday
  • Church on Sunday
  • Visit the rental house & install locks and pick up old lawn mower

I haven’t written a recap of last weekend’s festivities at the Kentucky Art Car Weekend yet – although all the photos are on Flickr so you can work out a general narration for yourself. I must say, driving down the street being chased by a Giant Red Phone that keeps ringing at you is quite surreal.

I also took a spin around town yesterday hunting down some elusive Big Things – something I haven’t done in quite a while. Those photos are still on my camera, though. Will need to take them off this weekend, if I get the chance. I found a hippo that I thought had disappeared, and a giant tomato, and also found nice retro 50’s signage and a cool diner on U.S. 40.

I really need to rework my “Big Things” pages again. I so want to get comments on the pages, and there are lots of things I need to add. I hope now that Movable Type is upgraded to 4.1, I’ll have less frustration building new sections. Although the upgrade has stopped posting my links regularly, which I need to figure out. That’s annoying, because I’ve written a lot of funny commentary in link descriptions that haven’t made it to my site. My wit should be preserved for posterity, people.

Wanted: Bottle Caps

Wanted: Bottle Caps

Just to put this out there into the ether – my lovely girlfriend is working on an project(s) involving bottle caps, and is seeking as many as we can find. It doesn’t matter what kind they are, or if they’re new or vintage, (although colorful and rare would be treasured and appreciated). If you have a bunch, or would be willing to save them up from your regular beer or soda usage and give them to us, I’m sure she’d be grateful. Contact me here if you want to know how to send them.

We’re going to ask some of our neighborhood restaurants if they’ll collect them, but that’s a toss-up as to whether it will be worth their while. I’ve also got a post on Craigslist and on the local freecycle list. But, you know, we have lots of friends who like beer, so…
