Southie's Campaign

As Tara and I were at work today, not doing work (parenthetical tangent: Tara wore tweed pants today and we had a big long discussion about just how common it was for people to wear tweed wherein Tara contended that it was quite common among both males and females and I completely disagreed with her saying that while wearing tweed was very common in the past nowadays if you wear tweed you're just asking to draw attention to yourself which I conveyed to her by using the word "ridiculous"), I happened upon the thought that people would save a heck of a lot of cumulative time if for the next four years we would all take out the zero for the year when we write the date. So, instead of "2/7/06" it would be "2/7/6". Just think about how much energy, time, and money would be saved if that 0 weren't there anymore! People would be saving milliseconds every day, which, when added to everyone else's saving of milliseconds, would amount to quite a large sum of time. So from now on, I implore you, drop the zero--make the world a better place!

Count me in. I'm going to use all the time I save to go on vacation or take up another language. Thanks, Southie!

ps- My word ver is ossama. Methinks your blog just landed on the radar of the Patriot Act.

The only reason I'm commenting is to defend my tweed choices (because you don't go to my page anymore). Tweed is so far from ridiculous- I can't stand it. That cardigan you stole from Yarbs- that's ridiculous. The fact that you buy your jeans in the same place you buy dairy products and produce- that's ridiculous. Tweed, my friend, is not ridiculous.

I saved about 5 seconds reading this by not having to read the '0'. Thanks!

And I agree with Tara. Tweed is not ridiculous. It can be fantastic and classy in 90% of outfits. This is coming from the girl who wears all black.
