On the one hand, service at Taco Bell on Easter Sunday is amazingly slow. On the other, they were open. I have never seen our Taco Bell so crowded, nor was our wait for our food ever as long. Taco Bell has free WiFi though, and is also an Ingress portal, so I was able to collect Ingress gear and surf the web while we waited.

Being open was the key thing; our original plan was to go out for Thai but the three Thai places we'd tried were closed. So were many of our usual haunts, Col's, The Country Oven, just about all restaurants between home and 9 Mile. Not that I minded riding in the van as it meant I could play Ingress and hit a few of the portals I don't regularly visit.

Anyway, the yarn in the photo is one of my most recent ebay finds. Anthrocon's staff is allowing me possession of the Security t-shirts they retired. Gaining approval is a big thing as the Anthrocon takes security so seriously they were going to destroy the shirts by shredding. When Jebra heard this he suggested they give them to me so that I can cut them into tarn (t-shirt yarn) and turn that into cat beds. Which I will then give back to Anthrocon to auction off. This is why I'm once again searching ebay for large quantities of inexpensive yarn. Preferably wool as these will be beds I don't want to be easy to disassemble. I don't know how many t-shirts I'm getting but I suspect that they may result in more tarn than I can go through in one year.

I think it's great that you're going to recycle the old shirts for something new and useful that the con can then use for fundraising. That's a lot of eco-karma right there. :-)

Recycling is great.
