Paranoia and the realization I do a lot of processing on twitter, has led me to ask - does anyone have a NON COMMERCIAL port from Twitter to an LJ or DW style journal? I've done the attempt to pull it all into a file, and I've tried to save it as a feed to my desktop, but I do miss the ability, like I have with my journal, to search easily and find notes. Twitter should really just charge a fee to let people port everything already - unless the big secret is that it's all lost.
In other news; cleaned out the basket by the front door, cleaned out some boxes from the move, took out some trash, washed a coat, put away some cds and finally figured out how to watch movies on the dvd/vcr w/o having to get up and manually switch cords. Oh yes, also made a grocery list for a different grocery store than I usually use. Considering strolling to check the place out tomorrow. But I really, REALLY wish I had a reliable, non painful, public transportation kind, carry all to use for shopping.
I am seriously considering a baby stroller at this rate. Because it feels like they're less likely to break down after just one usage. On the other hand, I'd probably have to take everything out just to use the bus. Damn. Still, everything else is weak made, wheels liable to just fall the eff off, or disintegrate. I found some lovely baskets - but they seem aimed at people who have cars. I'm left going 'It's beautiful and practical - if I didn't walk with a cane to bus stops. So that even if I took a special day just for groceries, I'd still wear myself out.
Ahh hah, just found something else that seems perfect. But apparently it's Industry level and costs 325$ for 1. I'm here talking myself into perhaps possibly spending 80$ on something that will make my life easier, so I can shop from more places and have more freedom than just deliveries (especially that delivery mistakes and carelessness now could be a known factor in my health and OMG the trouble with substitutions and paying for delivery of stuff w/o substitutions and getting maybe $30 worth of groceries. This has happened).
All these carts seem to be for laundry and light stuff; clothes shopping, or houseware shopping. NOT heavy groceries.
Things I have looked at: Hook & Go Cart - The wheels have to be special ordered from the company, are not made of rubber, tend to go. Also to get on a bus I'd have to lift it like an awkward heavy Christmas tree.
I admit to having spent twenty bucks on a collapsible that broke a wheel, the very first day I tried it. It couldn't handle my library books - not even the groceries I then went on to buy - but my library books! And I've been trying to get use out of it ever since, which means more and more holes as it drags against the ground, or severe shoulder pain as I try to carry it.
Have also! By the way, washed my beloved Bridgette and discovered that she may not be able to leap back into surface because dirt was holding a tear together. And am now washing my other bag. I sigh, I'm doing a lot of sighing.
