Low Budget Time Capsule

Patty and I are finally getting around to doing something about our dilapidated (coolest word ever) basement bathroom. First step was ripping off the '70s panelling, underneath which was this.

Maybe it was random, but I like to think they left it there on purpose, just to say hi.

Careful, it probably contains cyclamates and saccharin which causes bladder cancer in rats. So keep your rats away from it.

I've always thought that "hijinks" was a cool word. How many other words have three dotted letters in a row?

Hank, maybe that is the answer to why it is there. Rat poison.
Also, Beijing and Fiji have three dots.
I like shenanigans, but that's more of a way of life than it is a favorite word.

I like continuum. (One of three words with double-u's. Vacuum is another. I can never remember the third).

But my all time favorite word is Nibelungenlied.

Good words, guys. I also like filibuster, but that's probably just because it triggers the same emotional response in me as a Zips Belly Buster.

Anon, that ad's probably about the right vintage. Diet pepsi came out in 1964. Can't wait for the helicopter to deliver my new pepsi machine.

Hank, the rats moved out of our basement a long time ago - they were looking for something a little nicer. And I always thought a cyclamate was a riding buddy.
