things other than craftiness

I figure that in order to keep myself more entertained here, I need to write about more things that are going on in my world. I keep a private online journal, which is why writing in a public blog happens only sporadically*. I feel further restrained trying to keep it to one topic like sewing. So I won't.

Here's what I else do:

I did not single-handedly save this building from demolition, but (to toot my own horn) without a few well-placed phone calls from my office, a certain major bank, the bank of this country as they call themselves, would likely have torn down this amazing 1950 theater building. I helped make sure they knew they were not exempt from some laws and so they decided to find another site for a new building.

This is a rare occasion where I can stand up and say that I helped save a building and made a difference for a community. It's an amazing feeling.

I can't wait to see the interior restored.

I don't know anything about this site other than that it's right off the interstate and it's damn cool. I love industrial and agricultural architecture.

On a future trip, I might actually risk getting out of the car and walking around.

*I always think of Clueless when I type out sporadically.
