“Consider dessert a work in progress. The Snickers ice cream bar ($3) is just that, quartered, with the wrapper still on. “Now I get it,” one diner said. “This is a restaurant run by dudes.”—Ligaya Mishan, “I’ll Have the Absurd, Please,” Do or Dine Restaurant Review
“There comes a moment in all hangovers when the sufferer comes to a fork in the road. To the left lies death. To the right, madness. Brunch is down there too. For let us be plain: The perfect hangover cure is a cold Coke and a swim in the ocean, followed by a nap. Brunch in contrast offers only lukewarm coffee and watery bloody mary mix, harried servers and shoe-leather bacon. It may promise redemption. It generally delivers nothing of the sort.”—Sam Sifton (from “Hey Mr. Critic,” Sept. 8th)
I’ve recently gotten into pinterest, which probably has something to do with me neglecting my tumblr as of late. Not to worry…after trying it out for the past month or so, I definitely like it, but am running back to tumblr for the long haul.
So if you’ve ever lived with me, or if you just know me that well, you know that I do not clean often. It’s just not in my nature.
The other thing you know is that when I do clean, it tends to become a whole project, because it’s the only way I can keep myself entertained. So instead of just taking the hour or two to sweep, dust, and put my clothes away, I have to reorganize everything, including furniture, artwork, etc.
This is what my Sunday has become…a “cleaning” project. The good news is I’ve made progress. The bad news is that I’m losing interest, which means I’m going to have to start surfing the IKEA website or something to further motivate myself. Maybe I can fit a couch in the corner by the window?
(sigh) Pretty sure cleaning shouldn’t end up costing you money…oh well, yet another reason why I shouldn’t clean often.
