I need more people in my city that understand #26. I love, love when a trucker blocks the little run off lane, when I am trying to get on one interstate to another. Thank you people that do this! I mean I didn't sit in a long line to have a knuckle head fly around on the run off lane and jump in front of everyone else. lol

to fold a fitted sheet take two pockets and layer one on top of the other do the same with the other two then layer the four pockets one on top of the other, fold in the sides of the sheet and then fold in half.

Too funny! I had to copy it for another board I'm on -- it's too cute to not share.

I fold a fitted sheet by plucking the corners and then folding together as if they were real corners. (You know, the tip of the corner where the seam ends?) I think the tucking into itself is a better solution -- I do that with the crib sheets -- but for some reason I started doing it this other way with my newer sheets.

Also, totally agree with the MapQuest direction thing. I'm in the middle of a sub, on the far edge of a city, so for me I don't need the ten steps to get to the expressway. It always sends me there no matter where I'm going!

Someone somewhere did a study that shows it is more efficient for traffic to merge like a "zipper" with the two lanes alternating into one lane.

HOWEVER, it seems to me that if those two lanes have already merged several miles back, then, right or wrong, the courteous thing to do is to fall into that line.

On the other hand, I really hate it when I think the merge is after my exit, only to find out it isn't and then have to try to get back into that line that I just zipped past.

I love #14 & 27. There was a time in my life in college that I couldn't do laundry to save my soul. I did things like pick up the bleach bottle thinking it was the detergent and dump it on a load of darks.

As for #5, I now take all the corners and put them together, making the sheet look like an ice cream cone then fold from there.
