1) it’s amazing how much more room you have when you purge your records. evidently 7 years isn’t long enough for this monkey….1997 receipts? really?
2) i long for the days when i didn’t sweat under my boobs.
3) i think i see where the bug’s hoarding tendencies come from.
4) it’s not the auditing that scares me, it’s the not being prepared.
5) i LOVE my label maker
6) it’s probably sad to reminisce about what was going on when you wrote a check in 2000, but i couldn’t help myself.
7) you know you’re a really bad speller when spell check doesn’t even know what you are TRYING to spell.
8) i wonder if you can get rat scratch fever….
9)shredding is one of my top 5 things to do. lest you think me too cool, i am referring to shredding documents…not on the slopes or on a skate board. sigh. it makes me feel like a spy that’s getting rid of the evidence.
10) the fact that there is a picture telling me not to get my tie stuck in the shredder does take away from the whole spy fantasy….just a little.
and one to grow on
i have been accused of being too nostalgic. my response to this is as follows. not that i believe myself to be the next great writer, but a historian of sorts. ever since the beginning of time, there have been people who tell the stories of their era. i don’t pretend that these ramblings will stand the test of time, but maybe will serve as an insight into the lives and times of the people i know and love best. maybe this will be the sort of thing my kids will share with their kids. in ancient civilizations ancestors stories have been revered. i think we have become too insular and self consumed as a civilization. if we took the time to get to know each other’s histories, we would tend toward the empathetic. if you can put yourself in someone’s shoes, you are less likely to see the way you are different from them. it is our sameness that binds us. i worry that this may be getting lost. the concept of an interconnectedness…..so i write.
