Thoughts I've Had Today

(c) 2008 Ms. Huis Herself at musenmutter.blogspot.com


La, la, la, cleaning the house... You know, it's funny how frantically everybody cleans up their house before visitors and then is all like, oh, it's always this clean... Or at least I think everybody else does that, too...


Are we food snobs if we've got four different kinds of olive oil in our cupboard?


You'd think between the slots of the radiator would be too hot for spiders...


I wish the mailman wouldn't have seen me in my pajamas yesterday.

Speaking for my brother, a former route carrier, trust me, someone in their pajamas doesn't even register. You pretty much have to be nude for them to take notice. (This came up when my brother and a former pizza driver were swapping stories -- you'd never believe how many people open the door for the pizza guy in their starkies - many of them over and over.)

I have to agree with kashka. I used to deliver newspapers and never really noticed what a person was wearing unless it was the friendly smile!

I can totally relate to the cleaning too. We're always in a cleaning frenzy if we're expecting company. Then I also need to clean when they leave. SO much work to have company, but usually so enjoyable the extra work doesn't bother me at all. Hope you have a good time!

I'm in on the cleaning. That's we never invite people over. The cleaning prep takes days.

You know a true friend is coming over when you don't bother to clean first. That's what I always say. My dirty house = I really like you.

The amount of cleaning that went on last weekend before easter was unreal. And it was only family, but still, you don't want the first thing they see to be the dust bunnies that are larger than the cat (sigh). However, the cleaning lasted over the week so we have minimal to do before Monday's Opening Day (of baseball) party. I too have several (6) types of olive oil and I love each and every one of them! Don't let Penguin and Pumpkin know, but holding a crayon to the slats in the radiator (especially the old stand up ones) melts it and sends streams of bright colors cascading down said slat. We created wonderful works of art - my mother was not pleased that winter:)

Oh, never underestimate the Spiders, my dear. It's a baaaad mistake.

And I always do that mad houseclean. In fact, I think I should get people over more often to keep me rolling.

If it wasn't for the crappy hours, I'd consider being a pizza delivery guy

We do that too, except for the part where you act like it's always this clean...I alway assume people have put in extra work on cleaning if we're coming over. Except Pusher and Puck, who always have a clean house...but they always have people coming over, too.
