Mission Accomplished

I went to the laundromat today. Never did that before. Yesterday I asked someone how it worked and how much money I would need. I felt dumb but better to ask a friend who laughs at me in a good natured way than go off and be an idiot in public.

So now I have fluffy towels again and the sheets I like best back on the bed. Overall, it wasn’t awful. But it is going to get old really fast. I may have to get me one of those mini netbooks to entertain myself with while I sit there. It was packed but as far as people-watching goes it was a rather bland bunch.

Maybe I need a different laundromat. Maybe I’ll go to a new one every week until I find the one with the most interesting crowd. Nah, I still like my original thought of moving to a new place where a dryer will fit instead.

I went for a walk yesterday and came across some fence posts in the middle of nowhere. It made no sense at all for them to be where they were. Three in a row with no evidence of there ever being more. I wonder if they were put there intentionally to make people like me wonder.

On my way home I spied some really awesome graffiti on the side of some boxcars. I tell you, that’s the way to go. It’s not defacing anything so no one should complain about it and it has the potential of being seen by many. Here’s just one of the cars.

Heh. I do laundry at the laundromat at least once every two weeks--sometimes more. So, yeah, I KNOW about that. Sounds like you're making out okay.

I used to do some of my best writing at the laundromat. I'd go late at night and feed quarters into the juke box. It was my 'me' time:)

I remember using laundromats when I lived in apts and such, years ago and I hated them. They have some around here that have tanning beds. So I guess you can "tan" while you wash n dry.
