TIME

The other day we got an offer in the mail for a subscription to Time magazine. We cancelled that rag years ago, but I was wooed by the free clock/radio/thermometer they were giving away with the subscription. My mental dialog went like this: I really want that radio, and it's only $20, but then that means I'm saddled with Time. Weighing, weighing. In the end, I decided to do without the radio because I couldn't bear the thought of giving more money to that stupid magazine. Unfortunately, Annika has a free subscription, so she's reduced to tossing her Time when it gets unfreakinreadable.

1 In the past few weeks, Time has mailed me two free issues trying to get me to subscribe. Mind you, I am a volunteer with a soldier support organization, and I subscribe to a whole bunch of magazines that I am not interested in just so I can mail them in my care packages. However, after seeing the covers (the first was something offensive about Iraq, the second insinuated that Cheney was guilty of--something, who knows what), I threw the magazines away. I will NOT send that drivel to deployed troops.

2 When I got my first apartment, one of the first things I did was subscribe to Time because in my mind, all grown ups had one such subscription. Now I realize that if I really do need a Time subscription to be a grown up, I guess I don't really need to be a grown up.
