  • High school kids will steal the DVDs out of Netflix envelopes if you leave them in your mailbox for the Postal Service to pick up. I hope they enjoy episodes 9-13 of "Wonderfalls."
  • No sports news flash should be headlined "Fasano files for free agency."
  • If you mail your landlord a check that you have not signed nor filled in an amount nor a payee, the landlord won't cash it.
  • There's no way one million people could have fit a three-mile route to watch the Red Sox victory parade. If you figure that each person attending is going to take up at least two square feet (which is pretty cozy), people would have to be stacked up over 30 deep on each side of the route for the entire three miles. I hope no one had to go to the bathroom.

"I hope they enjoy episodes 9-13 of "Wonderfalls."

If they are anything like me, they will not. Not at all.

The first 8 were very good. They lacked a bit of focus at the end.

That's funny, just last Friday I was discussing the crowd count thing WRT the Toronto Gay Pride Parade. My friend Chris and I figured there ain't no way there were a million people along the route.

We figured one square foot, to be conservative. That's REALLY cozy.

Any Yankee fan will tell you, after 3/4 of a season of Wil Nieves, you start to miss Fasano. A lot.

I lied. We rejected one square foot, on the grounds that our cross-sections (read: butts) are much bigger than that.

At least you didn't sign your check.

0 If you mail a maintenance payment to your coop's management company but forget to put a stamp on the envelope, the check will never be seen again, by you or the management company.

Did your landlord even say anything? Or just throw it out?

The check was sent back to me with a form letter indicating it wasn't signed.

A form letter!

This means a lot of people do what I do. I can even recall why I did it. I was really worried about finding a stamp and an envelope and I forgot the other part of the equation.
