I mostly had a good night's sleep, last night and feel like a new person. Yay.
It's bitterly cold here. The temps are in the teens and below AND we have these incredible gale force winds that take your breath away. My outdoor thermometer reads ZERO right now.
I was spoiled by the warm temps last week, in the 30s and 40s. Now... YUCK.
I posted on Healthful & Homemade this a.m. if you're interested!
My SIL asked me what toilet paper I buy (yes, we have odd conversations in this family) and I told her. Then she said, "I think my TP company shortened the rolls."
And it made me think... so I just went in and checked, and I THINK SHE'S RIGHT. I can remember (okay, don't laugh too hard at this story) when I lived with my roomie, Suz. I'm an "over the roll" gal and she was an "under the roll" and we lived in this apt where you could NOT change out the roll until it was empty, because you couldn't fit your finger between the end of the roll and the tube to push it off, so had to tear off the cardboard. Therefore, whoever finished the roll got to put the new roll on the way THEY liked it.
Yes, it was quite a competition.. lol.
BUT yesterday I was thinking about the fact that the roll used to fit the entire length of the TP roll holder tube. Mine now? Easily more than an inch is open on either side.
This is like the tuna cans being 5.9 oz now instead of 6 oz. Or ice cream being just a few ounces less than a half gallon. Have you LOOKED?
The companies aren't raising prices, they're decreasing the size of things -- just by a little, so we don't really notice. But that's incredibly deceptive, don't you think?
I wonder what else has been shaved down in size? Anyone?
You Are Totally Funky
If you were a car, you'd be one of a kind. You'd be customized from bumper to bumper.
When it comes to the road of life, you throw away the map. You're curious to see where fate will take you.
You are the type most likely to get lost, but you never panic. Getting lost is how you learn about new things.
You believe that being on the road is an adventure. You can wait to see what your destination will be.
LOL... totally true on the "getting lost" part! Much of the rest is pretty close, too. *G*
