I'm working on the second of the green socks, but it's at the same point as the first one was on Monday, so there's not much to see.
Instead, I have a useful piece of advice. If you are ever employed as a meter-checker-and-ticker-giver, do not listen to funny songs/podcasts on your ipod while you work. If you do, try to avoid laughing audibly while you write tickets--it might give the wrong impression. (Or an accurate impression, but one which the city might rather avoid.)
Fortunately, my car was not involved.
