The word of the day is: Collateral

Working is hard. I forgot how hard it was to not be able to take a nap, to have to stay awake all day! I mean, seriously. I also had to get fingerprinted this week, for my job. (Only $5!) I hope I will be able to take on my own clients by the middle of next week. For those who didn't hear (and those who don't always listen--Keith!), I am doing PSR (psychosocial rehabilitation) for a local mental health agency. They told me I'm going to work with a lot of kids and some adults. From my shadowing experiences this week, it doesn't look all that hard, kind of a combination of the work I've been doing the last few years. They've said they will send me mostly to people in Grangeville, which will be nice. I'm thinking, depending on where I have to go, that I might be able to ride my bike to at least some clients'.

Lazlo and I have been taking at least 2 walks a day so we are getting quite familiar with Grangeville. I found a Health Food store! And he found some prime pooping spots! Last week Keith and I were walking Lazlo near the park and some rednecks in a pickup yelled supposedly funny but rather obscene things at me after I picked up Lazlo's poop. I guess only city folk clean up after their dogs here. Obviously, I am an Outsider. I can't not do it, though. I don't want random dogs crapping in my yard. Dog Poop Karma is serious stuff.

A friend is coming to visit this weekend and my parents are delivering our bikes to us (our 2 bikes and the Twice Bike!). And I plan to take at least one nap.

The movie theater decided to run another week of Ice Age 2 after Inside Man maybe didn't sell enough tickets? I, however, can't wait to see The Notorious Bettie Page. I'm going to call the theater and let him know, too. I don't know how they pick the movies they show, so I'm gonna assume that community input is welcome.
