Give it away now

I went on Craigslist today to see if I could trade something I have for some good quality wool yarn. I didn't find anything but I was struck by someone seeking some infant clothing for a yet to be born nephew. I shot her off an e-mail, since I have been collecting baby clothes for a few years. It seems silly to horde the stuff when I don't really need it, so I am sending a pile of new onesies, sleepers and other outfits to someone who needs them.

A trade secret if you ever deep on a holds list for something new at the library: request large print! After waiting 2 weeks I wised up and cancelled my hold, then placed one on a LP copy today and now David Sedaris' When You Are Engulfed in Flames is on its way.

The large print thing is sneaky, I like it.

As far as the clothes go... it seems like you get way to many baby clothes anyway whenever the baby actually gets here. Unless it is like your third or something everyone assumes you have everything. I guess what I am really trying to say it is will work out no matter what happens with the clothes.
