DH is taking a 3 week class in learning how to repair appliances and I get an email from him today telling me to stop using dryer sheets because they're just bad for them.  I'm sure I'll get a more in depth explanation later.

The annoying thing? I just bought a new box of fabric softener sheets. Grr.  I'm going to ask dh "Just how bad? Can I get away with using this last box so I don't waste the money?"
I've heard they can coat the lint collector so it isn't pourous anymore, so it becomes a fire hazard.

^ That is true.  But you can avoid the hazard by washing the lint trap screen regularly.

Tea towels on oven doors. I just think it looks awful.

I've heard not clearing the lint can cause a fire hazard, and we do that all the time.  But I have noticed sometimes it's a bit harder to clear everything.

I don't mean just cleaning out the lint.  I mean washing the lint screen with soap and water and a toothbrush to scrub off the dryer sheet chemicals.

Makka Pakka's song (In The bloody Night Garden, kids' TV show). This gosh darned thing is the end of me and my brain, we have officially parted company.

Makka Pakka
Akka Wakka
Mikka Makka moo!

Makka Pakka
Appa Yakka
ikka akka ooh!

Hum dum
Agga pang
Ing ang oo

Makka Pakka
Akka Wakka
Mikka Makka moo!!!

Seriously. You see that wall? I'm climbing it.

Google's spell check function. It must be the absolute worst in the world. It doesn't even recognise 'googling' as a word and it is about its own company. There is no option to change it from US to UK English so words that are spelt correctly is doesn't recognise. Also you might be one letter off and the options give you something that is utter nonsense.

I have written to them about it but they are probably all too busy skateboarding or something.

One of my FB friends simply cannot type the h in the word 'what' in any of her statuses.
She is just writing the word correctly.

So where do you hang the kitchen towels??
No one ever says, "Why me?!?!" when something good happens.

Not blueyzca01, but our family has a sliding rack under the sink where we put them, or we use paper towels to dry our hands after washing in the kitchen sink.

To be fair, if Google was to recognize googling, they'd be in danger of losing a trademark. (See also, Kleenex, Xerox, Coke...)

So how do they air? The under sink is enclosed----------um, yuk.

I have insisted upon airing towels in the four kitchens I have designed. Paper towels for hands works, and clean towels for dishdrying works for me. But for a quick wipe in the kitchen, towels on the stove handle works quite well with no dogs around. "Dogs, noses.........uck.)
