Clean your desk ... and reminisce about glue.

If you're thinking of cleaning your desk, maybe this guy will give you some inspiration. How did I find that website? I was drinking a Diet Pepsi, and just as I finished it called to mind an old flavor/smell? What was that mysterious call from the recesses of memory? It was ... it was ... mucilage! Remember those Lepage's Mucilage bottles, the ones with the red nipple-like tops? The were once everywhere, but now you never see them. Replaced by--what?--glue sticks? Computer graphics? I wanted a picture of the thing and found this desk-cleaning site, which had a picture here of a mucilage bottle, but a late-model, plastic version, not the classic one I was looking for. Ah, but here, here's what I wanted to find (thanks to a person who is way more interested in mucilage than I am):

I'm glad to see that I'm not the only one that reminisces about things like this. I wasn't eating anything when the memory of mucilage came back to me, I was trying to go to sleep...

My 17 year old daughter was looking at one of those finding books and she was going nuts tying to find a glue bottle. I looked at the picture and found it because it was a mucilage bottle and she had never seen one. Then i had to go online and find an image to show her.

be amazed at all the animals that Diablo 3 Gold would fall out: badgers, wolves, boa constrictors, Komodo dragons, crocodiles, ostriches, baboons, capybaras, runescape goldwild boars, leopards, manatees, ruminants in untold numbers. There is no doubt in my mind that feral giraffes and feral wow gold hippos have been living in Tokyo for rs gold generations without being seen by a soul.
