Birthday wishes

Happy birthday to Colin!

In honor of someone who organizes other peoples' time for a living, here are some handy time-saving techniques from my past few days.

  • Don't open your mail over your paper recycling container. You never know when there will be small pieces of paper in that envelope which might fall down into a maze of other paper.

  • Be careful when opening cream cheese containers. That foil lid is dangerous, and bleeding is a waste of time.

  • If you care about the arrival date of a package, order it immediately, just in case there are unexpected delays.

  • If you're in the UK and are ever in any danger of needing to send postcards internationally, buy a booklet of Worldwide Postcard Stamps. Like first class stamps, they won't expire.

  • If you want to waylay surprise packages that might arrive in the mail, don't let the birthday boy go off with the mailbox key for the day.

Many happy and healthy returns to the day, Mr. Colin!
I bond with you, re: dastardly foil lids on cups o' dairy product. I am pretty sure that's how I sliced my finger last week (my foil-lidded cup o' dairy product was yogurt). As it happened at the workplace I had to report the injury to my boss and we had a great laugh about it. Sadly, I was not eligible for workman's comp or an extended leave on disability.
