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.
