Three-quarters of a diary entry

Had to laugh when looking through the paper today I found an advert for K-Mart. "Men’s 3/4 length pants" it said: "25% off!" Yup. Makes sense.

My tea mug at work is rather less than spotless. It seems to have various ingrained stains around the inside. Evidently no amount of scrubbing with a soapy brush will rid me of them. I try not to worry about it, since all I drink out of it is tea, and I figure every time I pour boiling water into it, it kills any lurking germs.

On the way home tonight I remembered that due to circumstances too embarrassing to relate, my fridge had been turned off yesterday afternoon and I’d forgotten to turn it back on. When I got home I inspected it, and not willing to risk killing everyone in the house, I rang my mum for advice. ‘Cos she knows about that stuff. On her advice, the frozen food, milk and sandwich meat all got chucked out tonight. Arrgh. Off to the supermarket tomorrow after work then.
