Totally Useless Week... Entry #1
Yes, folks, I'd like to take this week and try something different: Totally Useless Week. This is where I'll post some Totally Useless piece of information, or perhaps a link to a Totally Useless site, at least once a day.

As an example:

Totally Useless Trivia: B.V.D's - An old expression for men's underwear, taken from the acronym of the company Bradley, Voorhees & Day, today known as Fruit of the Loom. Example: "We took off his clothes and left him in nothing but his B.V.D.'s."

BTW, this comes from the following Totally Useless Site: http://members.aol.com/quentncree/lehrer/

It's a site all about Tom Lehrer, and includes lyrics for his songs. Enjoy!

Ack! I did get a package and I did forget to open it! Actually, I've been sleeping all weekend; I started coming down with a cold on Friday. Thursday I went out with some friends and Wednesday I was busy with errands. All I know is that it came, unexpectedly, some time this week. Let me see!!!!! *runs to pile o' stuff*

*L*! It looked more like a DVD than a CD! And, you know what? I think I do have it. I had to go through my CD's last Saturday morning before driving to Pittsburgh to pick some out, and remembering seeing one by them and thinking "is this the one?". But I better double check.

Thank you!!!! I'm thining HannColl might be the most interested in this, then - what do you think?

Awww, I hope you're feeling better now. Sleep is such a good thing!!
By all means pass it along to HannColl if you think she'd like it or if you have it already. :) I may have got you 2 mixed up as to which one likes GS the most. :)

Ros, did you get my mathom? I'm not sure if I put enough stamps on it. :-/ I know you've been really busy (me 2) so I just hope you enjoy it.
Oh, and if it's a duplicate of something you previously had, just send it along to another Ponypal who likes it. :)
