Dramatis persona*

helenhead Helen Chick

I've always wanted a bumper sticker that said "I'm a female, LDS/Mormon, Scout leading, geocaching, piano-playing, bicycling, mathematics educator with a PhD in maths ... and I VOTE"!

I think this makes me a minority group of cardinality 1!

* Since there's only one of me and "personae" is plural (I think), I've gone with dramatis persona.

GROIC Day 28

IFAs I have worked on consolidating the contents of my filing cabinets, I have come across yet more pieces of paper that are out-of-date or irrelevant. So, day 28 repeats an earlier approach with another box of redundant paper. In terms of explaining its allocation to day 28, this requires some more “peculiar accounting”. I was trying to keep a tally of the sources of the paper, but I lost track/lost interest half-way through (losing track is explained by the fact that 28 is a big number*; losing interest is explained by the fact that I’ve reached the point where I’m just glad that stuff is going and I don’t care any more how much “stuff” it actually is). In the end, I’m reasonably sure there are at least 28 sources for this paper waste (from old bank account documentation, to last year’s phone book).

Alternatively, if you’re not convinced of the legitimacy of that approach to counting to 28, then please note that there are at least 28 litres of paper in the box (yes, sometimes** we*** measure paper in litres).

* not compared to 63772, or a googol, of course … but compared to 1 on a scale of 1 to 31 it is.
** well, twice
*** well, I have been known to … twice
