Not that I really pray, but my non-prayers have been answered

If you follow my blog at all, you know that I planned on having a revolution this year. What I really planned on doing was to actually get rid of all of my old papers this year. The fact is, I've been hanging on to a lot of this crap for over 10 years. It is a lot of paper. Boxes of it. I put the word out that I was looking for Fawn Hall, considered burning it all, and entered a contest to have people from my story come to my house to shred it for me. Some people might consider this a poor attempt at reaching my goal. I think I tried. Well, this Saturday, the City of Austin is sponsoring something called Shred Day 2007. They will let you bring up to 5 file boxes of crap and they will shred it for you. Now all I have to do is load 5 boxes into my car on Saturday and take it to them. You can call me Pineapple McShred!

For my Austin readers, here is the info so that you can get your crap shredded too:

Shred Day 2007
Shred Day 2007 is sponsored by Association of Records Managers and Administrators (ARMA) and the City of Austin Solid Waste Services Department.

Location: Austin High Parking Lot
Date: Saturday, April 21, 2007
Time: 8:00 am - 2:00 pm

With the increased awareness of identity theft, many people know they need to dispose of personal records in a way to insure that others can't find and misuse the information. ARMA and the City's Solid Waste Services Department are providing an opportunity to families and individuals to bring up to five (5) file boxes of paper for FREE on-the-spot confidential shredding. Mobile shredding trucks will be provided by Austin Shred, Centex Shred, and Iron Mountain. The objective is to help with home records management, identity theft protection while publicizing the value of Records Management and Recycling. All shredded material will be recycled.
ARMA International is a not-for-profit association which is the leading authority on managing records and information.

In lieu of a fee for the service, donations will be accepted for the Capital Area Food Bank.

Maybe you'll run into the governor there with his five boxes. That would be funny and maybe a little alarming.

Maybe I should forward the info to him. He might not know what a great opportunity he has on Saturday.

Will they help you destroy other kinds of evidence?

I think Saturday is strictly for paper trails. Maybe next week they will have a service to destroy things like the smoking gun and dna evidence...
