So I got my Emusic TMBG Unlimited Fleece today, and it was kind of convenient, because after a hot afternoon the fog rolled in and it got really cool and my shorts and t-shirt didn’t cut it any more. But when I pulled the fleece on, it was a smaller fit than I would have liked, and I noticed that I got a Men’s Medium for some reason. That’s what I requested, but I don’t know why I requested that size. So I wore it home, but in the long run, I think it’s smaller than I’d really like to wear on a regular basis. I could probably get an exchange if I tried hard enough, but for a free gift for subscribing to TMBG Unlimited for lots of months, I don’t think it’s worth the fight. I don’t even think it’s something I’d wear very much anyway.
So, what to do with it… Hm, if you’re female, cute, like TMBG, and wear a men’s medium pullover fleece, just ask and it’s yours. ;-)
I have to do dishes all the time. It’s the only chore I do regularly, and hence it’s the chore I hate the most and which I think about the most. It’s also what keeps me from cleaning my bathroom walls or mopping my kitchen floor.
At any rate, when I do dishes I frequent find the stomach of my shirt wet from splashing water. I often changes shirts after doing dishes because my shirt is so wet. Tonight I was thinking about this while I scrubbed away at some former meal in a frying pan, and I realized that a nice water apron with a water resistant surface would be the solution to my wet shirt woes.
Back in my sophomore year of high school, we learned about assembly lines for some reason. I don’t remember why. Instead of simply explaining the simple concept of an assembly line in 5 minutes to a class full of “gifted and talented” students, we were subjected to a ridiculous, hour long demonstration. The class was divided into an assembly line half and the craftsman half. Then the craftsmen each copied a picture by themselves, while on the assembly line, which was my half, each member reproduced a small part of the picture. The point was the assembly line works faster.
Why did this suddenly spring to mind? I was packing for Thanksgiving, and I noticed a Gap logo. Then I remembered the flyers about Gap using sweatshop labor to make clothes, and I thought about how much more expensive their clothes would be if they were made in the US. Then I realized that when I thought “made in the US,” it meant made by an individual craftsman. However, the US almost certainly uses an assembly line as well, which is what prompted the memory.
