Sunday Stuff

~*~ TO DO ~*~

  • get on actual grown-up people clothes - jammy pants with books all over them don't count

  • do the flippin' laundry already

  • open all the windows and air out the house

  • put on chain-link metal and get the climbing rose under control

  • put Bactine™ on all the wounds you'll inevitably get from climbing rose

  • make mummy sounds and scare the kids after all wounds have been bandaged

  • flip the compost heap

  • make the Bad Child pull out all bunny parts that Evil Cat drug into compost heap for burial later

  • determine who is the day's Bad Child through a series of secret tests It was Number 2

  • devise a test, including elements such as: who has bugged the others the most, who left a milk ring on the table, who lied about brushing their teeth

  • praise Evil Cat for keeping bunnies from garden

  • mock the neighbor that worships Right Angles and wastes their weekend trimming each shrub into a rectangle

  • purposely admire out loud your lack of right angles in garden while sipping a mojito leisurely

  • wait until Right Angle man is setting up BBQ today to spread fish emulsion on new growth

  • He knows why - the bastard.

  • enjoy the scent of new blossoms in backyard (where there was no fish emulsion spread) and finish Bones - super good book

  • take over the world

  • or at least the laundry room

  • dance to groovy music for a minimum of 8.35 minutes

  • depending on world/laundry room takeover, can increase to 15 minutes

  • cook crawfish ettouffe over chicken breasts and wild rice for dinner

  • stop

  • smell roses


  • stop shooting baskets with the laundry - it's taking you FOREVER, ding dong

  • although, nice shot

  • that one was TOTALLY worth three points, you KIDDING ME? Are you blind, meref?

I'm soo with you on the laundry. Laundry & scrubbing floors are on my list for today.

I just post a song that may qualify as dancing music for you. (-:
Mar. 26th, 2006 08:45 am (UTC)
HA! Dancing music isn't scheduled for another 36 minutes. Hee!

I am SO in love with the Mr. Clean Magic Eraser. My grout is SPOTLESS.
Mar. 26th, 2006 08:51 am (UTC)
I'm a Mr Clean Magic Eraser convert but nothing *really* gets the floors clean like a good on hands & knees scrubbing with bleach. It has been a few months since the last time I really cleaned the floors and they are over fue.
Mar. 26th, 2006 08:54 am (UTC)
*wonders if fue is some kind of evil foundation disease*

OOOOH. I bought an OXO grout brush that is my secret lover. My problem currently is the laundry room is where we feed Cancer Kitty, and he makes a HUGE mess with his wet food and Magic Eraser™ is what does the trick of getting that off the walls and tile. THEN I can scrubs with bleach.

It's a process.

I miss having an evil cat who leaves bunny-bits about, especially since the bunnies are giving my perennials crew-cuts.

Part of my mission for the day is to remind certain people wo share My Bathroomtm that they, too, can operate a toilet brush. Wish me luck.

Julia, trying to get in harmony with the atmosphere so I am not out in the field when one of the short, severe sleet storms come marching through
Mar. 26th, 2006 08:59 am (UTC)
I am fortunate in that my kids are young enough to be bribed with Cool Cleaning Implements, WOW! to attack their bathroom. It's still Fun.

I'm enjoying while it lasts, believe me.

*sends a pot of hot tea and warm soup - two pots - in case of inclement weather*
Mar. 26th, 2006 09:03 am (UTC)
Thank you.

Now, if we could just get the cattle to move to the part of the place where I don't have to walk into the wind coming or going (which is also where their hay is; you'd think they would be there, but no, there's a quarter-inch of new grass over where I get sleet in my face finding them) life would be a dream.

Julia, bagging church this morning, Lent or no.
Mar. 26th, 2006 09:06 am (UTC)
be grateful you have cows today and not sheep, for the sheep would be huddled in massive piles of guano, and surely one would be pined against the fence, requiring help.

Ah, church. I remember having to donate my precious Sundays to them in the long, long ago...
Mar. 26th, 2006 09:07 am (UTC)
And let's just pretend I spelled "PINNED" correctly.

For sheep do not pine.

Too many "pushes over the fence" from lonely shepherds to have any good feelings left in them.
Mar. 26th, 2006 10:17 am (UTC)

Was going to say that, except for being sent to Sunday School with the neighbors, and every VBS in Yelm serveral summers (unmedicated ADHD kid, so NOT blaming Mom for wanting me out of the house) not going to church was my default for most of my life. Then I married an Episcopal Priest's Kid, an only child born when his mother was 38, and he needs a reminder that there is one person he was taught surpassed his perfection to be a tolerable housemate.

Julia, a warning to all comfortably unchurched young women: PKs revert to type after marriage
Mar. 26th, 2006 10:30 am (UTC)
I have been making inappropriate sheep jokes for WEEKS and you are the first to laugh at it - THANK GOD.

Grew up in fiercely religious house where Sunday service is 3 hours long, plus weekly meetings, then morning bible study all through high school = NOT MISSING A THING NOW.

Husband is sufficiently wishy-washy on religion, which works to my advantage.
Mar. 26th, 2006 08:59 am (UTC)
I do not envy you for having to battle a climbing rose. Those beasts are meeeean.

And that rectangle fetishist neighbor? Make him cry. There's one like that living across the road from us, only with her it's pyramids. We point and laugh a lot.
Mar. 26th, 2006 09:01 am (UTC)
WOW. I do not understand the pruning fetishists. Outside of bonsai, because that stuff is ADDICTIVE. The best thing is, everything he plants has a natural round shape and he hasn't gotten it through his thick skull yet.

Oooh, I just skimmed my flist and saw you won a mod choice award! YOUR MIGHTY BOOSH IS SUPREME!! Go you!

(and seriously: this rose is a CRUEL thing. Which is exactly why I planted it outside my daughter's window. I AM PREPARED FOR HER SWAN LIKE BEAUTY TO ATTRACT THE BOYS.)
Mar. 26th, 2006 09:25 am (UTC)
You... are chipper over doing house chores.


[I have to tackle a few more pages of this research monster, then I'm going out to dinner with my parents (so I probably won't have time to do much else). AUUUUURRRRRFGH /battle cry]
Mar. 26th, 2006 09:38 am (UTC)

Chipperness GONE.

*woe and pines*
*which, again, sheep do not do*

And it bears repeating: *PINES*
Mar. 26th, 2006 10:02 am (UTC)
dance to groovy music for a minimum of 8.35 minutes *Add: in shirt, underwear, socks*

You are so method.

*hides camera behind back*
Mar. 26th, 2006 10:27 am (UTC)
*pretends to not notice the camera, shakes my money maker provocatively*

Mar. 26th, 2006 09:29 am (UTC)
I have to do laundry to. I think I may add a little dancing to my list, you have inspired me :)
Mar. 26th, 2006 09:39 am (UTC)
Mar. 26th, 2006 09:37 am (UTC)
You make me feel lazy. *laugh* My house is a DISASTER.
Mar. 26th, 2006 09:41 am (UTC)
Haha! I did NOTHING yesterday. And I am paying the PRICE. But loud music and a wiggle in my tooshie is making me not LOATHE the chores.
Mar. 26th, 2006 10:14 am (UTC)
How disappointing. Last time I clicked on one of your LJ cuts that said "To do list" there was a list of hot mens under it, not actual work! :(
Mar. 26th, 2006 10:27 am (UTC)
Mar. 26th, 2006 10:41 am (UTC)
There is! Hot mens please me! :) Work does not. :(
Mar. 26th, 2006 10:47 am (UTC)
*points you to your journal*
*points you to "Update journal"*
*points you to the list of men you would do if Hellbob gave permission sitting on your desk in Post It Note format*
*gives you the look of "don't even ACT like you don't have that list - we ALL have that list - or girls, as the need fits*

*encourages you to put what you want in your journal with a smile*

:D <-- like that!
Mar. 26th, 2006 11:24 am (UTC)
LOL! A Post It Note? How cute & old fashioned.
*points you to my user info page where the list is already listed.
*gives you WTF look. I need permission from Hellbob? Yeah right!
*starts constructing my own to do list (which will not include laundry or cleaning!

Mar. 26th, 2006 10:27 am (UTC)
Dude. I did laundry today too! And found out that ALL THE SWEET OLD GAY COUPLES go to the laundromat on Sunday. Was religious experience.

Mar. 26th, 2006 10:28 am (UTC)
AWW!! (It must be because all the weird religious uptight kinds are in church)

HOW ARE YOU?! I am hoping glorious, and I send you happy beams in case you are not.
Mar. 26th, 2006 11:07 am (UTC)
I'm pretty good! Though presently CONSUMED WITH RAGE at the future MIL. *dark, dark look*

How are YOU? I am taking that dancing-to-music idea and saving it for later. *nods*
Mar. 26th, 2006 11:09 am (UTC)
I am fucking GOOOOOD. Worked outside until I was exhausted, then filled up with good friends and margaritas and making my nest tidy today with loud, boppy music today = JOY.

And I think it's a LAW that MILs blow. I've had two. Both sucked.

Okay, list your top five songs to shake yo money maker to. GO!
Mar. 26th, 2006 11:22 am (UTC)
YAY. Eee, working outside! I can't wait til I have a HOUSE and not an apartment so I can have a GARDEN. Which will be mostly weeds but it will also be tomatoes and squash and flowers and things. And green beans! And yay again! Am glad you're good!

Shyeah, really. Jesus.

OOH. ...Honestly? I can't think of five. However, "Shake Ya Ass" by Mystikal is definitely Number One.
Mar. 26th, 2006 11:26 am (UTC)
Hooray! Have planted my tomatoes and basil and dill and mint and thyme and all the other things that please me greatly for I am an old biddy, YAY. GREEN BEANS. Those are FUN to grow in pyramids up poles.

Oooh, I was going to say "Shake Ya Tailfeathers" by Puffy and "Black Sweat" by O{+> because COME ON. And old school techno from like...'91.

(my first MIL like to buy me clothes in a size 14 and I was a *4*. "Oh! I thought that's the size you wore." BITCH.)
Mar. 26th, 2006 11:47 am (UTC)
Gardens are just good times. End of.


(*SO never eating again*)

(Heeee, icon!)
Mar. 26th, 2006 11:52 am (UTC)
(hooray! you are the first to laugh at that icon!!)

(also, am NOT a 4 anymore, you JOKING? That was when I ran 8 miles a day and hit the weights at the gym 4-5 times a week!)

Also: still getting results with the no hunger from the secret herb I mentioned? I am still pleased at this end.

*turns up music and makes you groove with me, for dancing is GOOD calorie burning*
Mar. 26th, 2006 12:28 pm (UTC)
(....It's possible to run eight miles in a day? HAHAHA. Surely you jest.)

Also: Yep. Am pretty amazed, honestly. *grooves. and grooves some more*
Mar. 26th, 2006 12:37 pm (UTC)
(if it's any consolation at all, I have to have total knee replacement surgery later this year from all the abuse I put on my legs in my drive for a Fit and Beautiful Body)

(also: have seen you, and puhrlease. Are beautiful and lush bodied in the best of ways and you will be loved and cherished and that's ALL you need to remember)
Mar. 26th, 2006 10:32 am (UTC)
Your children lie to you about brushing their teeth too?

Fish emulsion=stinky

Thought you'd slip take over the world in there, didn't you? Stoney, the leader of the world or queen or something.
Mar. 26th, 2006 10:38 am (UTC)
I am the ruler of my bathroom, and possibly the kitchen. That's all I've been able to take control over.

Oh! The Bedroom. Rawr. :D

Children are evil. They are born liars, and only through firm discipline love and compaassion can they be turned into anything worth keeping.
Mar. 26th, 2006 10:50 am (UTC)
...what do you MEAN that jammy bottoms don't count as adult clothes?! :O:O

And also, might I suggest new music by the Great Purple One for the dancing, because the first 2 songs on 3121 WILL make you get cho groove on.

And also, HI!
Mar. 26th, 2006 10:54 am (UTC)

You make it sound like I haven't had an illegal download of O{+>'s 3121 since JANUARY and have been shaking mah THANG to Black Sweat! *cough*even linked to a dl in an old O{+> post*cough*

AND HELLO TO YOU! *clings, feeds you Red Vines to make you stay longer*
Mar. 26th, 2006 10:50 am (UTC)
Nooooooooooooooo, bunnnnnnnieeeeeees!
Mar. 26th, 2006 10:55 am (UTC)
YES. They are dead. Dismemebered. Buried.

What was FUN in a not at all sort of way, was pulling out dead annuals from my front flower bed to make room for the bluebonnets coming up and finding FOUR COTTON TAILS.

Because Evil Cat knew I would find them there, as it is my Happy Place. I did take off my hat and make a sad face.
Mar. 26th, 2006 11:32 am (UTC)
What an exciting day. Sue has given me full use of the computer today, but I still need to finish the laundry and cleaning I started yesterday. Bleah. Also, I need to dispose of the trimmings I did of some of the jungle in our back yard.
Mar. 26th, 2006 11:38 am (UTC)

It helps that my house is empty right now and I have all the supplies at READY REACH and loud music. <-- most important part of Chore Day.

(you could always pile up the trimmings, add some leaves to the top and call it a compost heap. I won't tell.)
(Deleted comment)
Mar. 26th, 2006 12:41 pm (UTC)
BETH. I will do your yard, dingus. I will help you with plants and first: SHADE GARDENS ARE THE PRETTIEST. Grass is more work than flowerbeds, srsly.

(go to Redentas some time and get Japanese painted ferns. 6 inches high, silver and PURPLE. So, so gorgeous. Also can put in ginger - remind me to divide mine and bring you some. TALL and the best smelling flowers EVER. See also hydrangeas, purple clover (oxalis), Perisan Sheild (dude, GORGEOUS plant - needs NO light), Columbines...

SO MANY THINGS. (spray your shrubs with fish emulsion if you can, they will grow fast - no pruning for at least a month to encourage lots of growth - then you can reshape)

My Japanese maples are budding and are GLORIOUS. Come see me. I need to come see you soon, too. Maybe lunch or something? No?

....why is that funny? CAZA! Esplain yourselfs.

And the cat pee was on MY TORSO. Because stupid Scrappy, aka Sir Drooly, aka "My Arthritis prevents me from using the cat box when you do laundry" decided to use a laundry pile as his toilet.

Ah, the life of a cat. *cocks pistol*

Gunna play some? *logs on as someone else*
Mar. 26th, 2006 07:58 pm (UTC)
you're doing laundry willingly? I'm a single gal right now so I just wash once in a blue moon when I run out of clean clothes (and I have a lot of clothes!) actually being single is evil, cause unless I know somebody is coming over, I look at the mop and broom, look at my computer, guess which one wins? :D
Mar. 27th, 2006 12:44 am (UTC)
take over the world

Care you join me?

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.

Time Wot It Is
