Some Important Projects

Published November 6, 2019 by Iphis of Scyros

Sorry about the spam; it’s the reverse of the usual, but I’m going to be posting every day this month.  I’m running late today so I don’t have time to write a really detailed post.  (Later on, I will be writing about my writing.  Which sounds nonsensical when I say it.)

Anyway, I wanted to pass on the word about some important Kickstarter projects, two of which are trying to reduce plastic waste in the world.  And I’m so low on time that I don’t even have time to get any pictures.   Because I suck.  (Also because I probably shouldn’t be binge-watching Netflix while I’m trying to blog.  That’s definitely not helping…)

*cough*

So, the first project is GoSun Flatware, a stainless steel spoon and fork that fold up and fit into a case about the size of a credit card, so that everyone can carry them with them, eliminating the need for disposable plastic utensils.

Then there’s a project called The Wally Shop, which is a grocery store that sells everything in bulk in glass bottles, mailed to you in reusable packaging that you use to return the empty bottles so they can be reused.  Evidently, they’ve already got a store in New York and they’re running the Kickstarter in order to expand so they can ship all over the country.

The others are important, but not for ecological reasons.

The Kurt Vonnegut Museum and Library in Indianapolis is running a Kickstarter campaign to fund an exhibit about Slaughterhouse Five, probably his best known (if not outright best) novel, and also one of my favorite books.  I’ve backed their campaigns in the past without ever actually trying to, you know, go there and see the place, but when this exhibit opens, I am finally gonna look up directions on how to drive to Indianapolis.

And last but not least, a campaign is being run to fund a documentary called Still Working 9 to 5, for the 40th anniversary of 9 to 5.  (BTW, guess what show I’ve been binging on Netflix?)  It’s both about the movie and about what has changed over 40 years, and what hasn’t changed…

….and it’s a half hour past midnight.  I suck.

Okay, so…yeah.  November 5th’s totals:  2,528 words, 12,833 total.
