Save your celery- how to keep it fresh for a mighty long time

Just a quick note- ran across this tip a while back, and it really works! When you buy a bunch of celery, trim the end at the bottom:
Take a paper towel, dampen it, and fold it about into quarters. Place that on the freshly-cut end, and then wrap your entire celery bunch in foil. Yeah, sounds weird, but....
This bunch here is about a month old. Yes, really. It will keep, in a crisper drawer, for an incredibly long time. We'll be using it up in the Hong Kong-style noodles tonight- as promised, I'll FINALLY be able to show you the perfect accompaniment for those egg rolls, from last week! Meant to do this earlier this week, throws curveballs, sometimes. 
Enjoy your day, folks!
