I think I may have a world record with the plastic dry cleaning bags....27 for you tomorrow. These are only the ones that Randy let me take off the hanger. Apparently, he has a problem with not only dry cleaning, but also the bags that go over the clothes. Anyway...my donation is 27!
Hey Amy -- Thanks for inviting me to the site. I can't wait to learn more about it. I just read Sophie Kinsella "Remember Me?" It was a fun, quick read. Nothing like waking up after having amnesia for 3 years and having a totally different life. You should try it.
Hi Amy, you asked for a recommendation about "Animals in Translation," so I wanted to tell you it was an oddly fascinating, sometimes saddening and appalling read. It's non-fiction, written by a (mildly) autistic woman who works for the government; she inspects slaughterhouses to make sure the animals are treated humanely from start to finish. The book itself is mainly her insights about the way animals perceive the world; she classifies their behavior into predator and prey categories, and explains their reactions on this basis. It's not a sentimental subject. I found it interesting, but I don't know if I'd read it again. It's certainly worth reading at least once, if only to help understand critters in general.
