We are settling back into Richmond after our trip and trying to catch up with day-to-day fun while working on booking what is looking like a really busy spring and summer for Books on Wheels. I am in the process of moving, and thankfully Joel the Intern is still around to help me move boxes. Don't worry, Oregon Hill, the buses will still be in the neighborhood. I am only moving a block away. You can find us in the cul-de-sac on Albermarle if you need anything.
Ward and Joel went to a thrift store the other day and were taking a look at the cork board of flyers when Ward notices a flyer about a book and bicycle donation drive. His immediate reaction was, "What the %#*?. Who is biting our style?", before he reads down a little and realizes the donation drive is for us, he just hadn't seen the poster before then. Yeah, I am to blame for not showing him the poster in advance. Good thing he didn't rip it down before realizing what it was.
I was asked to talk about Books on Wheels to a really great group of VCU students the other day who are taking a class regarding sustainability. They asked great questions and were really fun to have, and some of the first people to see the big bus, especially from the inside. My favorite question was "Where did you get the couch?". Yeah, that's right. Love for my couch. The same couch that Evan sawed in half that belong to Rob, the same couch in the Hive in Greensboro, and the same couch that my roommate Chris couldn't wait to see leave the house, after I told him I loved it and he informed me that he knew because I have bad taste. I love that couch.
