I forgot to mention one of my latest green initiatives the other day. I'm using GreenDimes to try to scale back the ridiculous amount of junk mail I get. I haven't gotten my packet yet, but I'm really looking forward to seeing the mail brought down to a manageable level while at the same time causing 10 trees to be planted. The company gets extra points from me for having a navigation category on their website called "WTF."
On a tangentially-related topic, my red state has just gotten a little purpler. As I was going through the mail the other day, I spotted a voter ID card. At first I thought it was mine, but I looked closer and discovered that my husband had finally registered to vote for the first time ever. He even registered as a Democrat, which surprised me a bit because he's quite a bit more conservative than I am. I'm so proud.
Thanks to a video featuring one of my friends, I learned about Cabaraoke! this week. It seems that when you take certain cabs home from the bars in Kansas City, you can opt to be videotaped singing along with a song as you ride to your destination. I can't help but think there must be some fairly significant consent issues there considering that most of the participants are obviously drunk, but the videos are still pretty funny.
Okay, I have to get in early today, so I'll wrap things up. Feel free to say "hi" - I miss de-lurking day already.
