All bumbling conjurers, clumsy squires, no-talent bards, and cowardly thieves in the land will be preemptively put to death. My foes will surely give up and abandon their quest if they have no source of comic relief.

However, since May has snuck up and blind-sided me, and i find myself with 58% or so of my stuff in boxes, or staged, ready to box in my living room, no lease signed and 4 days or so to find somewhere to (a) sleep and bathe and (b) put my stuff i find i can fully appreciate the island of crisp, calm serenity and declaration of control that is a neatly made bed.
Similar to my long-time refusal to make my bed i have had a habit of believing that i have accomplished the things i think about for too long. Having now thought about where i want to live next for entirely too long, i guess i figured i had already sorted it out, and am scrambling. In an odd way it is kind of fun. If push comes to shove i have a friend i can crash with for two weeks or so, and a line on a room (think B&B) i can finagle for two more. I know i can rent a pickup for $20 a day, so i can start ferrying my meager possessions to either a storage facility or a new apartment.
There are two viable options, one available immediately (the responsible choice, but lacking something) and one slightly later (quirky, but not everything i am looking for). So, i squirm on the horns of dilemma: settle and take the 'right now' place, or hold out for something better.
Whatever happens i am enjoying the scramble as it takes me a bit out of myself, a thing sorely needed.
I hope all readers of this periodic blog are well, happy, and know where they are gonna put their stuff.

Got a nice report from the Todd yesterday about one of the projects he put together over at Milkshake. He and his company were tasked with developing a video contest web-site for the National Cooperative Grocers Association; the idea was to ask the community to submit videos that communicate “the top 10 reasons that you love your food co-op”.
Plenty of videos were submitted and lots of votes were tallied. Todd forwarded his favorite clip to me. It is pretty clever!
I just love this sort of thing. When the project was first explained to me, I thought: how many folks are going to take the time to make a video about their favorite co-op? Well, it turns out that hundreds of folks will. And the results are pretty great! Hooray for technology!
