Researchers have raised the danger alert of my beloved Teflon non stick pans from “possible carcinogen” to “likely”. I dont know how many of you cook but pans other than non stick? They stick! When they were at “possible” I shrugged it off… but now *sigh* Guess I better break out the SOS pads and get ready for hour long scrubbing sessions.
And Bush tells us we’re addicted to oil. Dear President Bush quite respectfully I did try public transportation. I faithfully left two hours before each class and parked my car and took Ms. Marta all the way to the city. Sure I had to switch twice and wait thirty minutes for each train to show up but I did it… but you know what? The city’s roads could have been designed just as well by a six year old, and that goes for public transportant too. After a few months of waking up two hours earlier and coming home two hours later… I honored surah asr and decided that my time was a wee bit precious and yes I resumed my addiction for oil. I just couldn’t resist. It felt too good. Perhaps I need oil addicted anonymous? Instead of scolding us for oil addiction, how about a scolding to the oil companies raking in record high profits because of their money addiction?
While a postal employee… went postal. I went to the post office today to pick up some two cent stamps and mail off my query letters and I couldn’t help but look closer at the employees. I mean “going postal” comes from somewhere right? What is it? Why are you so unhappy? My cashier seemed sweet and content with his job. Even told me to have a great day with a smile like he meant it?
But to end on a good note, a group of Japanese men upset at the rising divorce rates in the nation have developed “The Doting Husbands Association. The group urges men to improve the marital mood through five “golden rules” including going home early, calling wives by their given name (instead of just saying you) and looking them in the eyes when talking. How sweet. Wives looking for a good Valentines Gift? Perhaps a years membership? 😉
