Here’s a stupid question: I have a book of stamps I purchased a few years back when I had to mail a thing. Now I have to mail another thing, and I know the price of stamps has gone up at least once in the interim.
The stamps in my book don’t have a value printed on them. Will one stamp still work, or do I need to purchase a book of smaller-value stamps to augment the old stamp? I hope not, because that would necessitate a trip to the PO, and our Postmistress is a fearsome creature straight out of a Eudora Welty novel.
Another random thing: I’ve been reading comments around the web regarding the horrific botched execution in Oklahoma last night. Death penalty supporters seem to be laboring under the delusion that we death penalty opponents are weeping over the poor killers.
In their patronizing account, we’re supposed to think the killers could be rehabilitated and released into elementary school playgrounds with enough love, understanding and self esteem-building exercises.
Just for the record, that is a steaming crock of horseshit, and furthermore, you bastards who are making that argument know it is, which is why you start screeching “Kermit!-baybeees!-abortion!” when called on your gibberish.
I’m all for protecting society from mad-dog killers. I’d just rather my government not carry out barbaric torture in my name. It’s really not a difficult argument to grasp.
Final random thing: I had to replace, at great expense, my A/C unit last fall. Over the winter, the associated plumbing shit the bed.
Now I’ve got men crawling all over my attic and yard trying to fix it, and of course, it’s 90 degrees. Fuckity fuck.
