The Daily Ping

There were rumors of a Ping book, but those were started on the internet.

Bookmarks

Over the years, I’ve found bookmarks almost useless.

I don’t read a lot of books (nobody’s perfect), but when I was younger I used to have a couple of favorite bookmarks – both with Garfield prominently featured. When Star Trek: TNG was popular, I had a few TNG bookmarks (as expected). But, the thing is, I don’t really use them. I tend to just fold over the corner of a page and be done with it.

I mention this in part because I picked up a complimentary Cliff’s Notes bookmark at a shop this weekend. It’s sitting in between my tape dispenser and my stapler, awaiting its first use. Chances are it’ll be recycled.

Do you use bookmarks? -pm

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
