Tissues und Brillen-Putztücher

Above the Ghetto in the bathroom

Back in 2003, I went to Europe with a fine group of fellas. It was about this time of year in fact. While there I ate excellent food, saw lots of art, rode a bike around, wrote the neatest things on scraps of paper that made no sense the next day (in Amsterdam), beer, camaraderie, all the good stuff.

I have few mementos ‘sides the photos, but I did hoard a couple things. The first being the Tempo tissues pictured above. I’ve a dozen pocket packs to ration these past four years. I also bought a whole bunch of Brillen-Putztücher for cheap. Love ultra-clean lenses.

My stockpile is running out of both. It’s time to think about Europe again, or go the boring route and get them online.

Two reasons I broke out the tissues: First the cold, it’s getting better. Then we watched that Evening flick with Claire Danes and Toni Collette and Vanessa Redgrave and and and… It was better than The Notebook and I recommend it to moms and folks that appreciate a lady-flick.

Yeah, I got misty-eyed. But I’m proud of that fact.

Clears up the sinus passage, and I’ve been told tears make you live longer—just like laughter.

In other similar flick related notions: They’re really going to have to clean up the language in Georgia Rule before it gets on Lifetime—though the commercials might liven it up.

    I have Tempo in my bathroom right now. They’re relatively recently available in Ireland, you get them in cheapo German supermarket chains like Lidl.

    both the Tempo (and other sorts like it) and the wipes for you glasses super widely available here in the Netherlands.
    let me know if you want a box full, I’ll gladly send them to you. you keep me entertained with your site for most days so it would be the least I can do. 😉
