Re: Completely OT: trashcan on desk

I'd say, when you see this janitor, ask him not to put the wastebasket up on top of your desk.

I wouldn't like it if that happened at my desk either. Stuff gets tracked in onto the carpet, and the carpet does not get cleaned or vacuumed very [more]

Re: specialty pitcher

I have one. It's a little heavy, but it's great for iced tea.

Re: Dead tree press being kicked to the curb

The good thing about a printed newspaper is that, if your boss also gets it, you are reading the same thing your boss reads.

Unfortunately, with the local rag, the election coverage is lousy. Information about the races on the state and [more]

You will really be in trouble if the power goes out.

Re: OT procrastination is a virtue

Sounds more like your policy is (reluctantly) grandfathered in. Maybe this would be a good time to see if you can get a better deal with something else.

Re: Adjustable Desks

I'd tend to agree with you. I need to be accurate in what I'm doing.

I like it better if I can get away from the cubicle from time to time, maybe to drop off paperwork somewhere, pick something up, etc & maybe take the stairs.

Re: Poll: How often do you replace couches/sofas?

About 9 years, but the last couch was bought used (one of my better Salvation Army store finds.) For all I know, my ex still has it. I still have the one I bought to replace it (estate sale, out in the suburbs).

Nice looking smaller couches [more]

Re: bath rugs

You can get one of those rubbery non-slip pads a little smaller than the rug, and it's as good as that backing, or better. They're cream-colored and come in different sizes.

Re: Is YOUR job on the endangered list? ...

Possibly a drop in the number of flight attendants is because the airlines are less inclined to provide meals in flight.

Re: Saving $$$ on doors

LOL. That would have driven my ex's mom straight up a wall. She was one of those people who can't STAND to have closets and cabinets left open.

Re: Cell phone shopping

Do the T-Mobile phones in the US work over there?

I am SO annoyed with Sprint at this point. They have a good network here but I could not get anything in print about their phone plans at the store & the guy was doing this whole [more]

Re: quick drive by update

Oh, I know what you mean about the carpet! My old boyfriend and I helped fix up some houses a friend of his wanted to sell, and we pulled up a LOT of old, dirty carpet. It was so nice when we could find a hardwood floor underneath!

This was [more]

Re: Cell phone shopping

"Sprint (like Verizon) uses the CDMA standard. But if you buy a Sprint iPhone, it works on both Sprint's CDMA network and on GSM networks. So it works fine in the UK, and just about everywhere else, too. You can even buy a SIM from a local [more]

Some of the ancestors were from Yorkshire. It's not the only place I want to go, though.

Re: Saturday night

I only went to one high school reunion so far. The school is a long ways off, and I only went there the last year and a half. Most of the kids I hung out with have not kept in touch. And it was for more than one year. So I didn't really see a lot of [more]

Cell phone shopping

I was trying to put it off, but now I have to shop for a new cell phone. AND a new plan. The old phone is not being supported and no longer does all it used to do. The plan is being phased out. Anyone have recommendations?

Sprint has a good [more]

Re: Advertisers...how do they know?

I'm not sure exactly how they know, but they're not the only ones. Not long ago I was followed around by an ad for shoes that I hadn't bought because they didn't come in my size. Truly annoying.

Re: LBYM news sources

Can't get to the library when it's open, most days. Anyway, it's nice having the paper to read on the way to work. It's pretty much worth it.
