Befores I forgets

I noticed a sticker on the toilet paper dispenser/holder/whatever you want to call the thing at work today (okay, I really noticed it like eons ago, but totally kept forgetting to blog about it until recently). The sticker says "Protected by Microban" or something like that. The funny thing is that this sticker was only put on fairly recently (within the last 6 months) while the toilet paper dispenser has been there since I started working at the building (almost 5 years ago). So. What is Microban? It's supposedly some coating that makes it tougher for bacteria to adhere to the surface. But seeing as how they didn't to ANYTHING to the toilet paper dispenser, I'm thinking it's something that is sprayed on instead. So...why not just call it what it is--Lysol. Wait, it's probably not Lysol, it's probably generic Lysol. Generic Lysol called Microban.

Our laptop lab computers, which are 7 years old, recently sprouted stickers saying "Designed for Windows 7." Really? We supposed to be fooled by this?

Obviously, I hope, I meant "we're"

At least you're protected now from bathroom-AIDS. Sad that you went unprotected for so long.
