House Cleaning Day


When I clean the house, I look like this. Actually, I don't wear the hat. Kev made me put it on for the photo. If I didn't wear the bandana, I would become very headachey and congested from stirring up dust. I just finished cleaning my house for today. It is always such a good feeling to have a clean house. Wait a minute...that sounds like a Mister Rogers song. Every Friday morning at Central Market, I buy a copy of the Dallas Morning News as a treat for after I finish cleaning my house. Friday's paper is good because it has the movie section and the weekend guide, as well as a moderately difficult crossword puzzle in the Texas Living section. Kev hates the newspaper. To him it creates passive chaos, if you will forgive the feng shui-ese. He also isn't very interested in the news. He does like Dilbert though. Most of the time, I don't get Dilbert. But I did think it was kinda funny last week when the boss was going to get cauliflower for a brain transplant. I DON"T like cauliflower.

Tonight for dinner I am going to make the shrimp recipe from SA_Eric's blog, along with a nice mushroom risotto. This will be my first time to go solo on shrimp-cooking. I fear a kitchen disaster, but I am going to try it anyway. I like shrimp, but it freaks me out a little because it still kinda looks like a critter.

I am hoping to go see Hustle and Flow this weekend. It looks really great, and Henry Rollins gave it 4 stars.

For allegry purposes, john_clarke recommends the paper mask. You can get them at the hardware store and some dollar stores sell them. I wear them all the time when I mow the yard. Of course, you'd have to give up the bandit look. But with the mask, you trade up for the surgeon look.

You would have to give up the bandit look, but you could play keyboards for the Revelation.

Hm! Maybe we should try cleaning the house! :)

In Seattle we subscribed to the newspaper. I read Dear Abby, the editorial cartoons, and the funny pages. Oh, and the music/movie reviews. Went pretty quickly.

Here, we just get it Thurs (for the t.v. schedule) and Saturday (for the magazine-ish inserts). Sundays are more tabloid-y than a "real" newspaper.
