Why didn’t they ask me?

The post office doesn’t open until nine!  What’s up with that?  Didn’t it used to open at eight?  I know I’ve read a lot recently about the post office losing money and cutting back hours and services, but how are people supposed to get there if they’re only open from 9 to 5 and not at all on Saturdays?  I only go once or twice a year, but I’ve never been the only person in there.  Far from it, in fact.  There’s ALWAYS a line.  I don’t know what the solution is.  Maybe, if the issue is not being able to afford to be open for more than eight hours a day, they should be open from 5am to 9am and then from 4pm to 8pm.  Thank you, thank you, I know, I’m brilliant.  Post office problem solved.

What other problems can I solve?  Hungry?  I’ll make you cookies!  (I made cookies yesterday.  They’re mostly gone now.)  Need cheering up?  Listen to Mr. Blue Sky by ELO.  I was having a sad morning before work last week (no particular reason) and John played this for me.  It worked.

Stuck between books? I have a handy-dandy and oh-so-convenient book list right over there –> and if you’re wondering, my next book after the one I’m reading now will be something by Laura Lippman.  Anything else I can help with?  I’m not as good with band names (or company names), but it’s fun to try.

    I hadn’t thought about that, Tokenblogger. They’d probably still want to be full-time employees…Hmm. I’ll have to think about that one a little more.

    Holly, I would have had to go anyway. I mailed off our passports and the renewal forms, and there’s no way those were going in a regular envelope with regular stamps. Don’t let the guilt eat away at you. 🙂

    I do like that song (thank you Dr. Who for introducing me to it). My personal favorite pick-me-up song is “Don’t Stop Me Now” by Queen. It’s just happy.

    Randy, I LOVE “Don’t Stop Me Now”. Very good pick-me-up song. And thank you for reminding me that I should start watching Dr. Who someday. Soon. Someday soon.

    Yes, yes you can. But give it a few episodes. The first couple are pretty cheesy. Ok, they’re ALL pretty cheesy, but it’s a cheese that grows on you (ewwww).

    That’s gross. We’ve long since learned not to give up on a show until several episodes in, so we’ll give it a few. We’re expecting to like it.

    Watch a few, and if you think you’re going to give up on it jump ahead to the episode called “Blink” (season 3, episode 10). If you don’t like that episode then you can safely throw in the towel. Though be warned it’s a considerably scarier episode than most.

    Okay. I’m adding Dr. Who to our list of shows to watch this week (before all the new TV starts). Not that I have a list. It’s a mental list. For mental people.
