You can skip this one if you want

It's Friday, trash pick-up day. You don't mind if I dump the contents of my cluttered mind, do you? What clutters up my mind? Things like:

Why do the 9th, 10th, 11th, and 12th months of our calendar have names whose roots represent the numbers 7, 8, 9 and 10?

Why does the Deli downstairs put so much cilantro in their soup? It was supposed to be vegetable soup. When did cilantro become a vegetable?

Why did I wake up singing, "Little Willy" by The Sweet? I love The Sweet. "Fox on the run" is a good one, too. And yes, I even love "Ballroom Blitz." Why is it sometimes just Sweet and sometimes THE Sweet? By the way, I mentioned "Little Willy" to my co-worker and now she's whistling it as she walks down the hall, but she's whistling a slow version of it so it feels like on the Brady Bunch when they'd play the theme song slowed down at the scene changes.

Why can't I say no to people?

Where have I seen that kid from "Cougar Town" before? It's killing me.

Why does someone keep leaving the toilet seat cover on the seat? No, really. Some chick, I won't rule out any of my co-workers but it's most likely one of those girls from across the hall, does not flush the paper seat cover when she's done. If her delicate ass is too good to touch a toilet seat, what makes her think we want to touch her delicate ass. Because that's essentially what it amounts to when the next person has to push the paper into the toilet (with my shoe). And yesterday, there was a pinched part, as if it got stuck between her cheeks. Flush the damn seat cover!!!!

Wow, I really love saltines. Just plain saltines. Can't get enough. I just ate a whole sleeve of them while typing this.

It's really cold in our offices. I have to leave now. Enjoy your weekend.

Oh, Mitzvah--I saw a piece of mail hanging out from the bottom of the mail box in the lobby. It was someone's electric bill. I pulled it the rest of the way out and dropped it back in the box. While this doesn't seem like a big deal, several years ago a friend of mine was the victim of identity theft. A woman was writing checks around town on my friend's checking account number and it was determined that the thief got her checking account number from mail that she'd left out at her mailbox for the mail carrier to pick up. You should never do that and stop doing it if you do. It's dangerous.

Lessee - AGREE(!!!) on the toilet seat cover thing. Really. C'mon, people, is it so hard?! Saltines - also Agree; I generally eat about 6 packets a day (they're free here at work). And Mitzvah - good for you. Hey, if the flutter of a butterfly wing can cause a hurricane half a world away, then your good deed can absolutely make a difference in ways we can't even imagine. Huzzah!
