I've caught myself doing these types of things a lot lately.
The first thing on today's "who does this?" list is something that I actually think many other people do. I rip pages out of magazines that I'm going to use/need/do/refer to later.
I actually have 5 or 6 file folders where these ripped pages reside. Eventually.
You know, one folder for recipes, which is giant and bulging and subcategorized into entrees, appetizers, desserts, etc. by a very advanced paperclip system; one for interior design ideas; one for landscape design ides; another for kids' stuff; things to look up on the Internet someday, etc.
These pages, however, remain in various locations throughout the house until, months later, they make it into the folders where, of course, they are rarely, if ever, seen again.
Here are two recent rip outs: (1) a recipe for jalapeno-lime spritzers that you may or may not want to make into a cocktail by adding some tequila before serving(?). Looks refreshing, doesn't it?
But now? Now I have to get me a copy of The Skull Mantra so I can then read, Water Touching Stone, my recent purchase.
Anyone have a copy?
The third, "who does this" subject is a bit of a departure from the other two above. I'm wondering if anyone else sees something that is probably completely benign, but is cynical nonetheless. In this instance, I find myself wondering if I'm just really naive or a cranky skeptic.

They were very similar looking from the outside, both advertised really cheap prices ($40 for a 60 minute full body massage, and $20 for a 60 minute foot reflexology massage), and both looked, um, I don't know, very, very, well, you fill in the blank:
