You wanna know what I did when I got home, dontcha?

Wow, I've never spelled out "dontcha" before. It looks mildly perverse.

Anyway, when I got home I FOLDED ALL THE LAUNDRY THAT HAS BEEN SITTING ON THE MASTER BED FOR AN ENTIRE YEAR. AND, I picked up 30 dryer sheets from off the floor. AND, I cleaned up my office. AND, I made pie.

Okay, I didn't make pie, I made fried tofu with Poppy's special teriyaki sauce. But it was kinda like pie, only inside out. And I made it from scratch.

But, FOCUS PEOPLE, I actually did some cleaning in my own house! Good thing my parents come from Tennessee to visit once a year or else my house would never be clean because we never invite anyone over. Except for on July 4th when we always have a party. And that time we had the porch party. And the time we had a Halloween party. And that time we had our friend's wife over when our friend was out of town and I cooked her fajitas. And that time we had game night. And the few times my dad has been over. And that one time that my sister came over and out of the blue my brother ALSO came over (and he has never done that before or since) and it was all very awkward because my brother didn't know I was speaking with my sister. And that time we watched 007: Casino Royale (1967) and 007: On Her Majesty's Secret Service (1969). And that one time when the pretty lady came to determine how much our house was worth so we could stop paying PMI. But, to be fair, we've lived here five years so that's really not that many times we had to clean the house. ... Yup.

And for your Bruce Campbell / Duran Duran mashup viewing pleasure, an Old Spice commercial:

Hooray for clean house :D ! So, when are you going to move back in to the master bedroom?

Bruce Campbell rocks.
He's the highlight of Spiderman 3.

I can't imagine having unfolded laundry for a year!

And Bruce Campbell is awesome. Brisco County Jr. is one of the best television shows of all time.

THIS is why I want to be you. My mother's guilt KILLS me if I don't clean weekly. And put my laundry away immediately. and I live alone...stupidstupidstupid.

Spénce - We will move in Friday night or Saturday morning. As soon as my parents leave we'll flip the guest bed mattress, change the sheets, and move back into the guest room. Hay and I like it better in there. :)

Paticus - I so totally agree with you.

Avi - The "year" part might have been an embellishment... And Hay IM'd me asking why Brisco was on the Netflix queue. I told him that you are my spiritual adviser and you said I needed to watch it so he said okay.

Tug - I am the envy of the internets. Let go of your childhood guilt. It's fun to do! And I still love you even if your house is messy.

And dammit, I spell it as "advisor" but Blogger convinced me it was misspelled. So, ADVISOR.

I would go into fits if laundry was sitting around, but that is just my own anal-ness. If it doesn't bother you, then more power to you. We don't have people over much either, but I can't truly relax in the house unless it is reasonably clean. I guess at least I am doing it for myself, not to impress anyone.

Jen, here's my dilemma. When the house is completely clean I actually obsess about keeping it clean. When it's dirty my mind can relax because it's not trying to keep things from "breaking" because they're already "broken". Works for me. And our house is reasonably clean, aside from mail and (not my) dirty socks. And sometimes dishes.
