1. It's 3:15 a.m.
2. Regular Palmolive dish soap applied with a wash rag is the best way to keep your new acrylic tub fresh and gleaming.
2.5 Gleaning is only one letter away from gleaming.
2.75 Which is the better word? Which word would you pick to be on your kickball team? To stand next to you during the Apocalypse? Which of those words makes a better lemon bar?
3. This might be the saddest 10 minutes of YouTube footage I've ever seen:
3.25 I downloaded "Human Nature" and "The Way You Make Me Feel" after viewing it just the same.
3.5 That doesn't mean you should stop reading this blog, but if you feel thusly inclined, so be it.
3.6 I used to wear a black knit mini dress (with shoulder pads), black fishnet stockings, black anklet socks with white lace trim and black leather pumps.
3.75 The outfit was inspired by the video for "The Way You Make Me Feel."
3.9 I guess I can't blame you if that puts you over the "I'm never reading O'Brien's blog again" edge.
3.96 No, I do not have a picture of the outfit.
3.97 I've just about expended the 3's for this list.
4. Yesterday I started a 2,000 piece puzzle.
4.2 The image is "Femme a Tete de Roses" by Salvador Dali.
5. Farrah Fawcett is dying.
6. The number six deserves a riff of it's own, but the space in front of me is filled up with the idea of anal cancer killing Farrah Fawcett.
7 The numbering system for this list is a sham.
7.1 I can always go back and insert another number.
7.1258 The numbers between any two numbers are infinite as long as you don't limit the number of decimal places.
7.2 Farrah Fawcett is entitled to such an infinity and Michael Jackson wishes he were.
7.4 I wonder if there is actually 2,000 pieces in my puzzle.
7.5 If there are really only 1,999, I'd be okay with that.
7.54 Unless it means one is missing.
7.9 One missing puzzle piece changes the entire puzzle, although you'll try to convince yourself otherwise when it happens to one of your puzzles.
7.91 That's one of those details you don't want to spend too much time thinking about, the sadness associated with a missing puzzle piece.
7.98 See what I mean about the numbers?
8. It's 3: 53 a.m.
