Whassup my homies?
(Sorry for the gangsta greeting, but I'm in one of those moods.)
I was working on my Round 2 project for OMTWI last night, and thus have nothing anti-lazy for you today. Unless you want to see the pile of laundry in my closet. Wait, that would be the opposite of anti-lazy. Which, I guess would be laziness. Shoot. And I got so close to the end of the month without being lazy! Want to know my secret antidote to laundry? Come closer, I'll tell you.
Get a bigger laundry hamper!
Seriously, I need one. I still have clean undies! Why do laundry if it's not absolutely 100% necessary? Maybe if I had a fab laundry room, I'd love doing laundry, but I don't. I have a laundry closet. In the middle of the hallway. Where all our piles of dirty clothes have to wait in line for the washer. Which drives me bonkers. We've considered moving the washer and dryer down to the storage room in the basement, and tearing down the wall between the laundry closet and our closet to make our closet larger. Ahh, that's the dream. But then I think about having to trudge baskets of laundry up and down the stairs and my laziness kicks in and I decide I can deal with the piles of laundry every 2 weeks. That's how often I do laundry, usually. But I think it's been at least a month this time... whoops!
I remember asking my mom when I was maybe 13 or 14 why she ironed everything (and I mean, she ironed everything and still does). Her response? "Because I like to." Say whaaaa? Wrinkles never bother me enough to drag out the iron. Neva.
Wait, how did I get on a laundry diatribe?
Oh yes, laziness.
Anywho, moving on...
The hubs sent me this e-mail today which I think is too funny not to share, even if it has nothing to do with anti-laziness.
1. I think part of your best friend's job should be to immediately clear your computer history if you die.
2. Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.
3. I totally take back all those times I didn't want to nap when I was younger.
4. There is great need for a sarcasm font.
5. Was learning cursive really necessary?
6. MapQuest really needs to start their directions on #5. I'm pretty sure I know how to get out of my neighborhood.
7. Obituaries would be a lot more interesting if they told you how the person died.
8. I can't remember the last time I wasn't at least kind of tired.
9. Bad decisions make good stories.
10. You never know when it will strike, but there comes a moment a work when you realize you won't do anything productive for the rest of the day.
11. Can we all just agree to ignore whatever comes after Blu-Ray? I don't want to have to restart my collection... again.
12. I'm always slightly terrified when I exit out of Word and it asks me if I want to save changes to the 10-page technical report that I swear I did not make any changes to.
13. I keep some people's phone numbers in my phone just so I know not to answer when they call.
14. I think the freezer deserves a light as well.
15. I wish Google Maps had an "Avoid Ghetto" routing option.
16. I have a hard time deciphering the fine line between boredom and hunger.
17. How many times is it appropriate to say "What?" before you just nod and smile because you still didn't hear or understand a word they said?
18. I love the sense of camaraderie when an entire line of cars team up to prevent a jerk from cutting in at the front. Stay strong, brothers and sisters!
19. Shirts get dirty. Underwear get dirty. Pants? Pants never get dirty and you can wear them forever.
20. Sometimes I'll look down at my watch 3 consecutive times and still not know what time it is.
21. Even under ideal conditions, people have trouble locating their car keys in their pocket, finding their cell phone, and pinning the tail on the donkey, but I'd bet everyone can find and push the snooze button from 3 feet away, in 1.7 seconds, eyes closed, first time, every time.
22. The first testicular guard, the "Cup," was used in hockey in 1874 and the first helmet was used in 1974. That means it only took 100 years for men to realize their brain is also important.
Also, don't forget about the Creepy Crawl!
Today, Rachel at The Crinkled Home is sharing some spooky specimen jars!
