Thread Name: BS: Irrational or otiose habits & routines
Subject: RE: BS: Irrational or otiose habits & routines
I'd imagine (though I've no intention of trying it, in my own toilet, anyway) that the childhood pleasure of putting a small bundle of loo roll (still attached to the roll) into the toilet, standing clear and flushing, and watching the roll unreel itself as it's all pulled down by the flushing water, works better with the roll rolled out to the front.

Getting back to routines generally, I'm a fan of what Seinfeld calls the Streak, where you keep yourself honest in terms of some piece of work you need to do daily by putting an X across the day on the calendar if you've worked; the chain of Xes is very motivating. I use a gold Sharpie and sparkly gold gel.
