I bought a shredder. It's pretty neat; it'll even shred CDs and credit cards. It shreds stuff into confetti rather than strips. I've been shredding everything in sight; I've had to stop myself several times. Yes, I will need that bank statement. I should open that bill and pay it rather than shred it unopened. Having run out of current stuff, I was going though old piles of crap and shredding stuff... I was shredding some sales material from a Linux convention I attended three years ago when a really cool bumper sticker from EFF fell out of what I was about to shred and into the intake. I tried to pull it out but it was too late.

In other news, I've left my name for Katrina relief in five different places but haven't had any calls. My boss said I could take two weeks to go help but I have to go now; it doesn't seem like it will work out. There seems to be a gap between unskilled and RN/MD where help isn't needed at present. rabidkitten has given blood; conveniently, I was sick on that day.

Did you tell them that in addition to emergency medical training, you have your own shredder? That's bound to tip the balance.

It's too late to shred the NO and LA emergency plans that Blanco and Nagin ignored... They're already on the web.

My niece who just finished her tour of duty with Americorps, has been called back for further duty. She left today to fly to Montgomery Alabama, but I'm not sure exactly what she will be doing there...

Here's hoping you can go AND bring your shredder!

It's too heavy. I'm sure I could use trauma shears in a pinch.

We have one of those fancy-schmancy shredders here at the office. I get to bring in stuff from home and shred it, but I haven't yet used it on credit cards or CDs.

Ours has warning labels telling you DANGER! Be careful of your necktie and your long hair, not to mention your fingers. I find these amusing.

Um, you got a problem with giving blood?

Yes... My shredder also has a necktie warning label. Confusingly, it also has a paperclip warning icon although the box and instructions say it's fine to feed the thing paper clips... So I'm guessing it would handle neckties okay, too.

Well, I used to have this dread of needles. Now I don't, but I still operate in that mode out of habit.

LOL! I know all about operating out of habit (actions which are long-since no longer useful).

Be careful of his what now? (Not to mention his fingers.)
Sep. 8th, 2005 02:16 pm (UTC)
Not HIS long hair, the warning is given to the general public. Mayhaps I phrased it badly. :-p
Sep. 8th, 2005 02:24 pm (UTC)
Ah sorry, I read the warning label as just "DANGER!" and the next sentence as part of your comment. I'm sure he still has his long hair somewhere (or is it just smegma13 and misterdarkness who save their locks?)

Back in the 80s when I cut off my "tail" I saved it, but lost it in some move or another. Which is a shame, because I meant to attach it to a roach clip.

I have all my old fingernail and toenail clippings in jars. OK, no I don't.
Sep. 8th, 2005 02:49 pm (UTC)
Nail clippings! *shudder*

Actually, I donated my hair.

Back in the eighties when I cut off my tail, I gave it to my mom for Christmas.
Sep. 8th, 2005 03:13 pm (UTC)
Yay for donating hair! Well, your hair did qualify, since it was un-dyed and un-permed. Excellent!

I bet that tail was her favorite gift that year. ;-p
Sep. 8th, 2005 03:35 pm (UTC)
She hated my tail so she was psyched to see it in an envelope. Not sure what she did with it.
Sep. 8th, 2005 03:55 pm (UTC)
voodoo rituals?

this is an old post, so no one will probably see it, BUT

I still have my 80's tail!
