Mad about saffron

December 4, 2007
  • Some people go to the bathroom after lunch and rinse their mouths out with Listerineâ„¢ brand antiseptic solution or some sort of generic equivalent. Good for them; I could probably stand to do the same. Some people bring a toothbrush and toothpaste for a more thorough cleaning. More power to them. But I just saw a guy lug an enormous electric toothbrush into the bathroom, complete with base, charger and accessories. Doesn’t there come a point when the convenience is outweighed by the hassle of carrying all that stuff back and forth? I mean, at the very least he could just leave the charger in his office and only bring the toothbrush to the bathroom, right? Or am I missing something here?
  • Winter must be on its way, since my knuckles are chapped already. I guess I’m happy it doesn’t happen to my lips or something, but knuckles? How the hell does that happen? And why did it only start last year? Next time I see someone break out some ChapStickâ„¢ brand medicated lip balm or some sort of generic equivalent, I’ll be sorely tempted to borrow it from them and then rub it all over the backs of my hands. That’s bound to end well.
  • I never would have imagined how alive pre-beer looks. (Or how opaque!) It’s rather fascinating to see a liquid almost violently churning for days on end, with no obvious source of movement. Those little yeast cells sure know how to live it up. It’s a shame they’ll soon drown in their own liquid waste. Delicious, delicious, hoppy liquid waste. I can’t wait to drink it.

    Dry hands, dry elbows, chapped or cracking lips, and staticky hair.

    Dry hands has been an issue every winter for years, the elbows is new, my lips have given me year-round grief since suvekodu 2006 for reasons beyond my understanding.

    As for the hair, well, maybe I just don’t remember what it was like to have long hair. But goddamn is this constant static enough to make me eye the scissors again.
