AN Community Action Day, or, Why we are better than you!

Saturday morning, before the world awoke, three dedicated human beings representing the AN Community arose to collect used condoms, jugs and other flotsam and jetsam on AN Community Beach Clean Up Day.

Nico, Lynnzgal and OptimistPrime (who forthwith will be known as the only people on AN who care about the earth) showed up in force to join hundreds to clean the beaches and waterways throughout California.

As an avid surfer I am keenly aware of how dirty the ocean is (about as safe as spending the night with Brittany Spears) I have included a video here I encourage all of you to watch.

 

We were put through a rigorous training session with an employee of the City of Berkeley, which was very educational (yes, that was sarcastic). We learned that we were not to collect dead animals, which really threw a monkey(ball) wrench into things with Chez Nico coming up and all. We were also told to be on the lookout for plastic jugs (TWSS) to which Lynnzgal promptly assured us she was not a suspect.

This AN Community Day was not as much fun as last year when we flew to Somalia and built that hospital or when we cured Swine Flu in Zimbabwe, however, just like Halloween they let us take our bags of trash home! I was so excited!! I spread all the contents of the bag on the floor and separated out all the junk, and it was amazing what you find washed up on the shore! I found a frisbee, and I think Nico found Jason Giambi's batting average!

All in all it was a fun day, quite educational, and despite implicit instructions NOT to pick up dead animals, I am happy to report that Chez Nico will be well-stocked!
