Love & Loathe — 07-07-09

Love:

*Wasabi peas.

*Rice snack mix… I knew it was gonna be good when the cashier checked me out and muttered under her breath, “Oh, this is good.” Like my purchase just reminded her exactly how good it was and on her next break she probably bought her own bag.

* Search engine results. I’m gonna have to do another post on it. June’s were hairlairious!

* The views from the new office. Also, that my car is parked in the shade all day, no more sun aging and no more stupid window flyers. (I’m trying, here, folks!)

* I am so, so, sooo glad that I didnt’t have to go to Los Angeles for any reason today.

Loathe:

* The work week before vacation.

* Commuting in traffic on freeways. Why are they called freeways when you’re clearly NOT free to move.

One Last Thing:
I was thinking recently, as I bought a huge 18 pack of toilet paper at Target for cheap, how there used to be various colors of TP available for purchase. Anyone else remember toilet paper in blue or pink? It’s been a few years, I guess, and it just quietly stopped showing up in the stores, so I hardly even noticed. I remember someone saying a few years ago that they never buy dyed toilet paper because of where it’s used…

I suppose, if it were really important to me, I could probably buy it somewhere on the Internet… but, well, why spend extra money for something you’re just going to flush down the drain?

  1. I too loath the week before vacation (which is this week). And I also remember dyed TP so it could match your bathroom decor. I’m sure it came down to money, not selling enought to justify the added expense.

    So if it’s ok to blow your nose with colored paper why isn’t it ok to wipe your butt with it?

    I’m beginning to wonder if we should admit that we remember colored TP… is that showing our age?? I read somewhere, or my friend told me, that some doctors were saying that women who were prone to urinary tract infections had them exacerbated by colored TP. Which is what one of the other commenters said here, too, I think.

    You and me, were just hanging in there this week, holding out for vacation…

    I know it seems the week is longer when you are about to go on a little get away trip, nanana, XXOXOXOX

    I think the week IS longer because everyone gets all scared when they find out you’re leaving, so they just pile the work on. Deadlines get moved up. Crazy. Clearly I need to take more vacations so they get used to my absence. hehehe

    oooh, i totally forgot when i emailed you about my “schedule” that you were away friday!

    i don’t remember there being colored TP… how funny! i never would’ve thought to ever do that.

    see you today 😀

    ***
    Yep, I remember buying blue TP for my first “married” home because it matched the towels. I’ve never been a big fan of pink, so I never bought that color.
    I loved seeing you today… thanks for being so close. 😛

    I saw some colors at an off brand store the other day, blue, pink and one with flowers. I think it stopped being so popular because the colors supposedly caused UTI. I’m so informed, about TP…. is that weird?

    ***
    Yeah, I think that’s what my girlfriend told me, that doctors said the colored TP caused UTIs. I don’t think it’s weird, I think everyone should be informed about TP. 🙂

  5. Seriously why is the work week before vacation always the longest week in the history of the world?

    ***
    I think it’s because they slow the clocks down and everyone puts more work on your desk. Word to the wise, don’t tell anyone more than necessary that you’re going on vacation, because I had to tell 14 of our upper management because of a project I’m doing and I got 14 freak out reply emails (I may be exaggerating, but you get the idea). Ugh! It’s nice to be loved, I guess…

  6. Just the other day I thought of something like the toilet paper thing and now I can’t remember what it was. Yeah, they just fazed that out and no one noticed until you did. Have a great time in SF. I wish you had the time to visit Muir Woods. It’s the most beautiful place. Alcatraz was okay, but I wouldn’t go back. I think after Muir Woods, my fave things were the sea lions at pier 19 (I think) and the food. Relax, have fun and take loads of pics.

    Pier 39… yeah, that’s right near where the boat comes in to take us to Alcatraz. I love jails, but then I’m weird like that.
    I wanna see the Spreckel’s mansion, I hear that’s where author Danielle Steel lives now. And walk the crooked part of Lombard Street. And go to Coit Tower. And walk the Golden Gate Bridge and… maybe sleep and relax, like you said. 😀
