I’m on the town planning commission (yeah, I don’t know what they were thinking either), and we are working on getting rid of abandoned houses and other long term town improvements, so I am going to be heading to the BAD Buildings Summit sponsored by the Brownfields Assistance Center on the 12th. The all day conference starts at 9:30, and since I am four hours away I have decided I would rather
shower in prison CHEW ON GLASS than wake up at 4 am and drive down there and then deal with perky people for eight hours who are all energetic and friendly and talkative while I am miserable and mainlining coffee, so I am going down the night before and may stay an extra night depending on how tired I am after the conference. In fact, I can almost verify I will be there the night after because my night vision has gotten really bad despite me taking bilberry and vitamin C every morning.
It’s mainly the glare- when I am driving at night and a car comes behind me, this being West Virginia, it’s going to be a pick-em-up truck or SUV which just blinds me in the mirror. But even then, I hate driving at night because of all the deer and drunks and well, I hate driving at night.
So, if anyone is in the area and wants to hook up for dinner and drinks, let me know.
