Dork-o-Rama: The Random Thoughts of a Total Goofball

Embracing the Dork Side....Because Life is Too Short to Take Yourself Too Seriously

Friday, June 22, 2007

Not only have I not had time to blog...

I can't even keep control of my home. Behold my dining room, victim of Tornado Terry:
  • My poor dining room table. It's underused for its true purpose (okay, I do dig out a spot for breakfast, but that's it) and is used mainly as crap holder.
  • You can't really tell from this angle, but it's worse than it looks (hard to believe!) because that blue thing on the left there is concealing an even messier pile o'crap.
  • I post this to shame myself into doing something about this disaster over the weekend.
(and yes... I'll finally take steps to get some cleaning help in the very near future, but no housekeeper could sort through all of this craaaaaap. the crap's got to move first! )

I have been making time to clean up after myself. I am so busy that it's easy to come in a throw stuff around. But then I discovered I hate coming in to a tornado. And for whatever reason, I have been finding I get a second wind late at night and go into cleaning mode. Of course shaming yourself into it also works! :)

Carumba, sister. I gotta give ya props for showing that stash of shit on the table. It looks like the desk in my office. I don't even have a CHAIR at that particular desk. Thank God I sit at ANOTHER one in the same room.

I'm a shit piler as well. I feel your pain. I expect an 'after' shot so I can live vicariously through you.

Good luck with the cleaning help. I know my sis loves her cleaning chick who comes and does the big cleaning and changes all of the beds/washes sheets/etc.

Tell you what--I'll help you get that wine out of there. One bottle at a time.

Hey i see the books i returned to you a couple of weeks ago are sitting in the front of the table - ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha

Maybe your closet is too big which gives you false confidence in how much stuff you can acquire and you need a smaller apartment and you and I should just go ahead and trade??

compared to my place it looks good. I SO need a cleaning lady. Or a cleaning man, or robot, or alien. Anything really will do.

chrissie, sadly.. the pic didn't work. i still have a mess on my hands...

nat, that's so smart. sometimes i'm really good about keeping things neat all the time. but then... sometimes... i get laaaazy. and then busy.

buddhagirl, i hope to have an "after" shot SOON! i hate this!

Hahaha. I'm always so happy to see other people having piles of stuff around, too. Yeah!

But I do remember your table looking like this once before and then there was a beautiful "after" picture of it all cleaned up, so you'll do it eventually.

But I won't. Tee hee. blink blink (looks innocent)
