they're the greenest people we know

August 29th, 2009 at 11:27 pm

Saving log - $0
Spending log - $12 breakfast, coffee + $30 adoption fee
Found money - $0.10 (Safeway parking lot - underneath the vending machine)

At the breakfast place today, DH and I got a compliment. Our next table looked at the massive amount of food they couldn't finish and sighed...just about the same time we got our meals. I pulled out our Ziploc boxes and we merrily cut our portions in half. The waitress on duty said, "they do it all the time - they are the greenest people we know."

We are also in the midst of another recycling project. Because of the large crop of strays and abandoned pets, PAWS is swamped - PAWS Cat City ran a $30 special this month if you would adopt an adult cat. (includes chip, rabies shot, spay/neuter, etc) I wasn't ready at the beginning of the month even, but I feel ready now.

We adopted a very sweet, but very shy 2 yr cat this afternoon. She had been at PAWS for several months so the entire staff was excited about it ... and doubly excited that we were in the neighborhood so they could keep in touch. I have to reset my eyes - our new adoptee looks huge compared to Morgan. New adoptee is shy, so I'm hoping that that will translate into no desire for the outdoors. I enjoyed how PAWS classified her personality - they called her a "private investigator". Tentatively, I'm calling her V.I..

    Oh, and have you found a good breakfast spot? I tried Four Spoons (or is it Three Spoons) and was a little underwhelmed.

    Heh heh - six months ago the place, like many others, had only styrofoam boxes and couple of customers got huffy. I say that even if the boxes were cardboard, wouldn't bringing your own work even better? Shouldn't green people be prepared? Smile
    SMB - Its Roosters on 61st/Phinney. They've lost a bit compared to six months ago, but its so damn hard to find even a reasonable breakfast place that I want the routine. If I have to go to another, dab gum, I'm still gonna bring my boxes. Smile
    I promise to post pics. I just hope I won't jinx things.

    I am so happy you adopted again. What a lucky cat! I've always had indoor-outdoor cats until we moved to the condo. TC enjoys brief outings on the patio when I am there with her, but she is very happy indoors. Hope V.I. loves the indoors, too.
