adrian is rad


pleasantly disorganized, spatially adept pack rat

Filed under: — adrian @ 11:25 am

I’m a pack rat. I keep everything, though at time (when I’m moving, particularly) I get ruthless and throw everything out.

I am also disorganized. Most people looking at my desk or closet would wonder how I could find anything.

I also have good spatial skills and spatial memory.

Somehow these all work well together. My last trip to South Africa was a bit over two years ago. This morning I reached onto my desk and found 2 R20 notes and one R10 note without searching around at all. They were just in a middle of a pile. I also found about R10 in coins in my everyday shoulder bag which I was repacking it as my carry on.

I’m totally going to be able to buy myself a coke at the airport.

    Just hope they haven’t retired those particular notes. I went to the UK once and was excited to use notes that I had kept from my previous trip. At the airport I tried to buy something (maybe a Coke) and the cashier told me the notes were no good and I’d have to take them to a bank and have them exchanged for the new notes. I think I also had some valid notes on me, so I was able to buy what I wanted, but I still had to go to a bank later (and go inside and talk to an actual teller).
