About Me

A blog wherein a literary agent will sometimes discuss his business, sometimes discuss the movies he sees, the tennis he watches, or the world around him. In which he will often wish he could say more, but will be obliged by business necessity and basic politeness and simple civility to hold his tongue. Rankings are done on a scale of one to five Slithy Toads, where a 0 is a complete waste of time, a 2 is a completely innocuous way to spend your time, and a 4 is intended as a geas compelling you to make the time.

the well-dressed output tray

I just got a spare part for my Xerox printer, the size of which is approximately 9x4.5x1, in a 25x16x8 carton.

I guess I should be thankful it came with sealed air packing, instead of two cubic feet of packing peanuts.

Packing peanuts drive me nuts too. They spread quickly from the counter to the floor and then WHAM the dog grabs a mouthful and runs off.
