We have tree guys here trimming brush and grinding stumps.  I've been up since 7:30 AM and spent an hour flagging stuff that's deliberate in the roadside yard.  I have used about a week's worth of spoons today already.  :P  *flop*

I will try to get some fishbowl stuff done that doesn't require too much brain -- got a couple more things to post.  But if I'm erratic today, that's why.

The Poetry Fishbowl has made its $250 goal three times, so you get a bonus fishbowl on Tuesday, April 17. Everyone is eligible to vote in this poll. I will keep it open at least until Wednesday night. If there's a clear answer then, I'll close it. Otherwise I may leave it open a little longer.

(Sorry I didn't get to this earlier today. I was busy stumbling through the yard putting half a roll of orange duct tape on dozens of saplings I've planted previously so they wouldn't get cut. It's taken this long for my brain to boot up enough to remember that I should announce next week's fishbowl because oh yeah Tuesday.)

Read and vote! )
