Woah, looks like its getting actually cold here for the next few days. OK, not like Minneosta cold, but below freezing, which it hasn't been very much this winter. I keep thinking how one doesn't even need a winter coat in this part of the country, because winters are mild, but maybe when it's a high of 17, I'll be glad I kept my wintry type coats (nothing serious, but mid-weight wool numbers to be worn with layers.) To kick off our temporary cold snap, I'm wearing wool tights, which are too warm for sitting around in the apartment. Blokey and I are going to do what all fun loving young couples in Brooklyn like to don on a Saturday afternoon- e-recycling! One would think that it would be relatively easy to safely recycle electronic goods in this fair city, but it's actually quite difficult. The Lower East Side Ecology Center has been hosting events all January, but dang, I wish public and more redaily available options were available. Perhaps electronics recycling is only an issue for households with a big open-source geek (not me-I'm just reaping the benefits). And then we're run some more errands.
I'm happy to report I slept about 13 hours on Thursday night. And took ALL of Friday off of thinky work (laundry and other tasks were done). I'm so relieved to be closer to finishing my goal. Thanks to Style Nation for your encouraging words!
(I don't know why I'm smirking here. Maybe that's just my crooked face).
