Today while cleaning up whereI dump school stuff (I'm a teacher and this IS spring cleaning) I found my lunch for a day in February. I had bought a pre-made tuna sandwich from the convenience store down the street. The reciept was still in the bag with one very puffy sandwich. It was rushed to the trash can. It is a hot day today. I don't want to be there when the bag blows. Anyone else have an archeological discovery today?

Nice one and yes, I know where an archaeological horror lurks in my house. In my kitchen actually, which I've been happily describing as having been improved to Level 1 Squalor (with squeaky clean worktops when I'm baking something anyone else might eat). In a rather nice expensive plastic lunch box lurk the remains of a train picnic from over a year ago Now when I first remembered it, days after the journey, I was reluctant to clean the box because the contents would be a bit icky, but also reluctant to throw box and contents out - because the box was a really nice one. So I shoved it in the cupboard under the sink, which is where it still is! Pretty soon it got covered by all the other stuff in there and I also got rather good at not noticing it when I had to go through the cupboard.
Update... it's in the bin now, thanks for helping me to face up to that one

Hi! What a timely post. I was just cleaning a pile of junk in my hallway and discovered an old bag of bananas and the beginning of a gnat population explosion. Good thing. I found it now. It was at least several weeks old judging by its liquid contents. Last year I had a big ppproblem with gnats and eventually uncovered the remains of a cantaloupe that I didn't even remember buying.
