LISH IN MASS EN MASSE

i've been off on a business trip to massachusetts for the past two & some weeks. oh-so much has happened. you are privy to not much. here are some stories.

i got a free upgrade on my rental car, so instead of driving a stratus around for a couple weeks, i had a red convertible sebring which confused the fuck out of the locals. i received a new sort of stare - i'm accustomed to the one that reads "you look like a fucking freak", but that was regularly overlaid with "& THAT'S your CAR?!" interesting social dynamics. each morning, the Most Industrious Spiders Ever would pretty much encase the driver's side, which was less than fun to clear considering that the Most Industrious Spiders may or may not have been fully capable of killing me with a single fangpoke.

my boss was there for my first day & a half, showing me around before she went back to florida, & she bought me flowers to brighten up my room. (she owns the house directly next to the business, so it was literally a ten second walk to work each morning.) i have no idea what to do when presented with flowers. i stick them in water all right, but they don't impact my life in any way & so i forget about them ten minutes after filling the vase. & the water always turns murky & disgusting, & i don't remember them again until they start to stink. cut flowers just scream "i wasted my money!" to me. i don't even like roses, but i prefer them simply because they dry nicely.

massachusetts has the very dumbest people making the local commercials, that's for sure. i counted multiple grammatical errors - one, a gmc truck that was the best something-or-other "in it's class", a restaurant that offered "kid's eat free", something that wanted me to "take a peak" at the savings, & even the text on the what's-on-the-show show (tv guide channel) was replete with mistakes. [sic] [sic] [sic] sigh.

obviously there isn't much to do in southwestern massachusetts.

but there is THIS:

if you visit https://dunsapp.usps.gov/HoldMail.jsp, you will find yourself able to put your mail on hold for up to thirty days. HOWEVER, they don't call to confirm, & they don't require proof of address. they in no way check up on you. what does this mean?

[Quarex] I cannot believe you can just put random people's mail on hold.
