Wednesday September 1, 2004. The Thrift Shop Donation Fairy from ARC picked up the stuff
I'd placed on the curb, and left a receipt on the porch.

***Mail: Einblatt -- newsletter for Mnstf, the oldest Twin Cities sf club.

***To Pillsbury House, where I did data entry for the Community Barter Network and Pillsbury House's volunteer program.

***"Before attempting to penetrate the Evil Overlord's Invincible Fortress, the practical hero will seriously examine the option of maintaining a safe distance and picking him off the ramparts with a long-range weapon.
"by Robert Taylor"

These are the opening words of Heroics for Beginners by John Moore. Recommended, with two reservations: 1) It's best read in small doses; 2) There really ought to be some acknowledgement of the many people who've contributed to the "If I am ever the Hero" List.

***Tangent from the above -- I see the need for an "If I am ever the suicidal Hero" list.
From National Journal's RNC email newsletter:
Gotta Be Nice To Those Volunteers
Democrats did brisk business outside the Garden Tuesday, offering pedestrians the chance to donate to the Kerry campaign via credit card, check or cash. One young man listened earnestly and then clasped hands with the staffer. "I really appreciate all the work you're doing out here," he said -- an odd comment, given that he was clad in the green polo shirt of an RNC volunteer.
Lashing out
Don't blink! Visit the world's first eyelash bar. By Carly Baldwin
Writing: daily exercise -- Done.

"They Might Be Windmills" -- Converted more zero draft to first draft. Decided on the ending. I need to develop two more major characters.
Decluttering: Donations to ARC got picked up. Took out some trash.
