you can fight it, or you can rock out to it

But I can probably get another husband on eBay.

This cracks me up.

I do that hang the shirts to air dry thing too, I got a big wooden clothes rack on wheels to hang them all on. I love it.

It will all be OK in the end. If it isn't OK, it isn't the end.

Debby, the rolling cart is la bomba. I don't know why husband cannot see that. I have been planning for years to get one, but you can't just go into a store and buy one. Then I realized I could probably get it on the internet. And yea, it was so.

One raises the eyebrow

You know, I've been saying for 6 months now that I really have to go through and clear out the junk from my closet, the linen press and the cupboard under the kitchen sink. Maybe next week.

I did clean out the freezer the other day. One of the packages (either stew or minestrone, I couldn't identify which) was from October 99.

A "linen press" should have a tweeny to clean it out, no?

I clean mine once a year whether it needs it or not.

Hey, my grin in angle brackets did not appear, dammit. I might have to do a smiley. The linen closet remark was meant to be sarcastic.

In my perfect world, yes it would. What do you call them?

edit: I knew that. Now close your tag so my post isn't italicised!

There is a gorgeous antique linen press in the consignment shop across the street that I have been coveting for a few months now, I want to put art supplies in it but the consort is adament it is not coming in to the house. I just love the name of it.

I remember a time, back in the late 90s, when I thought nonsense like this mattered somewhat more than I do now. Now I see well-educated people yammering about the birth control choices of their daughters, or gay marriage, and I think they are morons.

Toys.

Grin in angle brackets: <g>

Aww, I had closed the tag at the end of my post to see if it would work...

I did the g in angle brackets. It didn't appear. so I need to leave a space on either inside of the bracket? I do not like this Advanced HTML stuff, not at all. I need some shortcuts.

You're going to hate how you have to do angle brackets here.

& lt;g& gt;

Remove the spaces after the &s, post it and see what happens.

I'm putting together a how-to list, although Lime may give in on all these HTML wuss demands. I shall try to hold the line, though.

I never used angle brackets anyway, just parenthesis. (g)

Brigit--it is less than and greater than.

Shit is fucked up and bullshit

Rolling laundry carts? You give better service than I do. I have a laundry basket for each member of the family. The clothes get washed and dried and then taken out of the dryer and either hung on hangers (if that kind of thing) and put on a rack next to the dryer or folded (or in the case of socks and underwear just tossed) into the owner's basket. The baskets then sit there for weeks until I offer to take everything to Goodwill unless it gets put away. The girls are now doing their own laundry so the gridlock arises from sheets and towels, but I can almost always bully some kid into putting those away.

I don't mind doing laundry at all, I just hate putting it all away, but my system cleverly avoids any of that.
