Pointless plastics..

Grunt? Grunt, you say? Were it not for this stick between my disheveled, lipless, and shrunken gums, I would not ha' been able to write my meager thoughts in the dirt.

When I were born, pigs in the sty (my mum couldn´t afford her own sty ) looked down on me and told me to grunt off. " No riff raff here."

Born?

You was lucky!

 

We was mixed together out of some old tins of spam, charged with a loose bolt of lightning and told to bugger off to Cleathorpes.

So. We went shopping and my kid asked to buy cheesstrings because another kid had had them at school. Since I had no idea what they are I agreed. Thus we ended up with a plastic pack containing 6 single strands of cheese each thoroughly packed in plastic. Sort of like if someone was packing 6 single packed Bifi into a plastic bag, only with cheese.

Pointless plastic as tough as can be.

So I am puzzled. I get daily reports from my children what again they heard at school about environmental savviness and I am lectured regularly about what we can't do no more cause at school someone said... But then if its cheesstrings its different😅.

Just in case you are new to them as I was. I asked why can't we just buy normal cheese and cut it up in blocks. Turns out that these cheese strands can be fizzled up into tiny filaments like you were unraveling a piece of rope and be eaten that way.

I don't want to sound like a Grinch but I would love to see glitter getting banned - it gets everywhere and anywhere..I read that there's a campaign in the UK to get rid of it.

 

For Thanksgiving this last November I received a looooovely invitation in the mail (that sounds sarcastic but it really was lovely, especially as it's so rare to get a "proper" invitation to anything these days that isn't a wedding) from a pair of dear friends.  It was gorgeously penned and decorated--lamentably, the principal component of the decoration was LOOSE glitter of all shapes and sizes.  Essentially a glitter bomb.  You opened the envelope and POOF! a cloud of glitter landed on everything in a three-foot radius around you.  Stupidly, I wound up having to consult the invitation another two or three times before the night in question and each time unleashed afresh another glitter attack.  I am STILL finding glitter on myself in my last-glance-in-the-mirror-before-leaving-the-house check, two months later.  The shit gets and STAYS everywhere.

re glass bottles: don't forget, glass bottles are heavier and also need to be transported.  The shipping of filled plastic bottles requires exponentially less fuel than the shipping of filled glass bottles :/ 

re string cheese: nothing quite so satisfying for a small person.  Your kids will grow out of their fascination with it by their late teens, I'm sure, but until then, it's a cheap thrill for a kid who can't yet drink, smoke, club, watch porn, or decide when they get up in the morning.  Let them live.

A school I taught in 20 years ago (crikey) made us go and negotiate use of glitter in the classroom with the cleaners. If they vetoed it, then no sparkles.

 

It felt ridiculous at the time, but now I'm quite pleased that there was a hurdle to overcome before we used the stuff.

Next thing you will find out: The seal gets destroyed when opening the case. And that seal is not available as replacement part; Or has an obscene price.

 

You then have to dispose the toothbrush/razor and have two unneeded batteries lying around. And still no working toothbrush/razor.

 

Hint: If you want to do a DIY repair, take the thing apart first, and - when you figured that you will manage to get it back together again - then order the batteries.

I managed to change the batteries.

The safety razor is working again.

There are so few things nowadays that can be repaired.
