05:41 pm - I want a shot at redemption.
As part of the ongoing Operation Clean The Fuck Up, I have gathered up all my soda can and bottle redeemables and will shortly be transporting them to the can and bottle munching machine getup of my choosing.

It's no secret that I drink a lot of Diet Coke and this is the result of an entire summer's worth of can accumulation. I currently have nine grocery bags full of bottles and cans just waiting to go. My original goal was to collect and bring in enough today to pay for dinner tonight (pasta, beef, sauce, caviar, you know, nothing fancy) but now I see I will have enough to not only buy my dinner parts, but also to buy -- what else? Another case of Diet Coke.

The circle is complete.

When we first moved to Rhode Island, I was chagrined and bewildered by the fact that there was no bottle refund here. I even went so far as wandering around a grocery store with a bag of empties, looking for the machines, before I realised.

For a while we saved our cans and returned them when we visited NY. Then I found out I was living a bad Seinfeld episode and stopped.

Now I feel bad. I promised not to make disparaging comments about cleanliness but I was pretty hard on those recyclables.
