I decided today to mix it up a bit. There's a class at 10 at a pool not that far away (Greenlake). I had gone once before but it was a warm sunny day and the closest parking space was in Spokane. But, today was cloudy and I thought what the hell...

I found a parking space in the parking lot! Miracle du jour. The pool doors don't open until 10 so I was cooling my heels outside when a woman headed for class joined me. She gave me some good pre-class skippy.

The teacher - Dave - turned out to be great. The class was way way way more intense than I am used to and 15 minutes longer. I may not be able to move tomorrow. Dave, as it turns out, was new to everyone else in the class and they were as impressed as I was. He said he teaches it every Wednesday. I'm so there. Oh and the woman I met pre-class says that when the weather is cold and/or rainy, parking is not bad at all. Yeah!!

Then I went over to the fireplace store to ask about electric fireplaces. I talked to a really nice guy who gave me tons of great info. I think I've got a plan. I think it's going to cost me way more than I planned but I think I'm going to do it anyway.

I have to clean out the fireplace and get good pictures and good measurements. Maybe this afternoon.

Right now I have to get something to eat because I am starving.

Before I was laid off, I did work as a vendor for Microsoft. In hopes of easing traffic and parking bottlenecks, Microsoft gives every employee and contingent staff (vendors, etc) a free bus pass. It was credit card that was good anytime and every time on our bus system and I loved it. But, alas, I had to give it back when I got laid off.

Two months after I got laid off, Seattle discontinued the free buses downtown program which was my 'moving sidewalk'. Most of my bus riding was in the free zone. So major Le Sigh.

Today, I got two identical pieces of promo mail from the bus company. Each had 4 free bus tickets to be used anytime between now and January 31 on any bus in the city!!

Lightbulb.

A while back, Scott, the building manager installed a junk mail trash can. There's a slot by the mail boxes and it is just a shoot to a giant trash can.

Just now I went down and tore through the top layer of today's junk mail and scored 8 more promo mails that my neighbors trashed. Each as 4 tickets in it!!!

Heck, I might go down later on this evening after everyone else gets home from work and throws their free tickets into the trash.

Note to self: Now you must quit laughing at Neighbor Ann when she dives in there for Bed Bath an Beyond coupons.

I sure hope you stayed up and didn't fold when it looked like the A's were toast.
