Always Remember to Do a Preliminary Test Sniff Before Pouring in Coffee or on Cereal
Earlier this morning, I visited the shared refrigerator in our office pantry with the intention of pouring lowfat milk onto my bowl of Peanut Butter Puffins cereal (from Trader Joe’s), so that I could enjoy a tasty and satisfying breakfast at my desk. Sadly, this was not to be, for the milk (poured from a carton which was nearly full) had gone sour and thus rendered my very delicious cereal completely inedible. And though I was able to purchase a reasonably acceptable “replacement breakfast” from our cafeteria (a pecan Danish, three link sausages and several scoops of egg frittata product) it was just not the same as the sweet and crunchy Puffins cereal which I love so well. Sadness.
Another thing that’s making me sad is the knowledge that today is our last day at the office to enjoy wanton access to FaceBook, Twitter and other Social Networking sites before a full-on block of all their URLs goes into effect on July 1. This is a ridiculously huge deal, as everybody here is pretty much addicted to keeping FaceBook open on your desktop all day long while still managing to do all your work. I hope I can live without the ability to send virtual cocktails, exotic fish and plants with human faces to all my friends between the hours of 7:30 AM and 6:00 PM. Sometimes, life just isn’t fair.
