This is probably under the heading of more-than-you-wanted-to-know, but every night before I go to bed I read magazines in the bathtub. Nothing scandalous, but along the lines of Oprah and Real Simple. Anyway, I'm noticing a trend that is driving me insane. For the past year or so, magazine publishers have been making the front covers of magazines bi-fold so that the minute I open it, the front flap pops open and gets dunked in the water so that I have to tear it off in anger and toss the soggy ball of paper in the direction of the waste basket. Every time. Whatever marketing genius came up with this practice should be strung up with dental floss and forced to read nothing but celebrity picture books for a month. The ones by Madonna and the zebra one from that guy on the men's makover show will be in heavy rotation.
