This Is the Year

If you've been reading my blog for a while, you may recall that last year I put the call out to Fawn Hall for help. Well, she never responded and I never did much about shredding all of those papers. I got rid of a box or two, but in the meantime I managed to collect more crap. Obviously I do not shred or recycle as I go. I've been told this is the best way to deal with this problem. Instead I just shove it all in a bag to deal with it later. But this is the year I am getting rid of the paper. I really mean it this time. I am going to shred (or recycle) my papers. It really pissed me off that I paid some one to move a bunch of garbage to my new house. How ridiculous is that? I'm having a hard time getting my office in order because I get so pissed off about it every time I go in that room. I decided I really have to do something about all of that paper. And while Fawn Hall didn't call me, I got the next best thing -- my electric bill. Seriously. I was looking at those inserts that you never read that come in the electric bill because I figured what they said would be less painful than my bill. That is when I discovered that they have announced Shred Day 2008. For those of you in Austin that don't shred as you go, Shred Day 2008 is on Saturday, April 19, 2008 from 7:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. at the Austin High Parking Lot. You can bring up to five boxes for them to shred for you. I already have one box ready to go and I can fill up to four more. Of course, they didn't say what size boxes they could be. But if this plan fails, I will just have to get a hamster powered paper shredder.

If I'm not mistaken, Fawn Hall was in drug rehab when last heard from.

Anyway, if your papers are already in a garbage bag, try this: Dump some detergent in it, fill the bag with water and slosh it around. Like when you leave your driver's license in your jeans pocket, then forget it and wash the jeans and there's nothing left of your license.

well, then she could have shredded my papers to keep her mind off of the drugs. nice idea, but that would be messy because they are in paper sacks. i think i will let the shreddy people do their thing.
