10 pounds down 32 pounds to go!

"Yes, I'd forgotten you're moonlighting as a criminal mastermind now. Got your next heist planned?"

So, Tuesday my Obama sign was stolen again. There was a gentleman who tried to bum cigarettes from Matt's family down the street and they're pretty sure he's the one who stole it. Which is impressive because it was almost as high up the embankment as the new signs and it was raining. I hope he at least sprained his ankle. Today the democratic headquarters were manned by a younger girl dressed a little bit like britney spears in that video with the hitting and she was way calmer than the little old ladies I talked to last time. She gave me a new sign, and another new sign, and a further new sign from a stack of handmade signs that I strongly suspect the grumpy old ladies made. The back of my new sign says "steal my sign, $250 fine" but I went with the "don't steal my rights" side instead. I guess I'm not bitter enough to threaten.

It's been a very long week with no firm plans. Next week I'm going to have to make myself a schedule. It's far too easy to get to 3 o'clock in the afternoon and find that you still haven't taken a shower. I'm still relatively busy with household things that need to be done but I don't want to find that weeks have passed and I've done nothing better than scrub my floor 50 times.

And also, Happy Halloween!

Can I just say that I think stealing yard signs is really weird? I mean, what exactly was the criminal mastermind planning to accomplish by removing your Obama sign? (I found you via NaBloPoMo, by the way, I'm not just some random creepy stalker.)
