Jodie this one goes out to you. You mentioned something that has got me typing like a fool-and trying to eat dinner at the same time. You mentioned in comment on previous entry about the dreaded spoon/water spray situation-it's detestable-and I find that not only does it go on me,it also sprays the blind above the sink.
OTHER WASHING UP RELATED PET PEEVES
* getting an itchy nose while you're up to your elbows in water-hate that thing
*accidentally bumping the plug out when you've only got one thing left to do (grrr)
*letting the water out and then you find that there's a frying pan on the stove that you forgot
*eating dinner on the lounge and forgetting that you haven't done the dishes and then coming out to the kitchen later to find a sink of dirty dishes-bugger them. Each and every one of them
*bits of food and crap in the plug hole.Yucky yucky.
*** this will be covered in next journal entry-hehe
Mood - don't want to do the washing up after writing this
Music - sail on-lionel ritchie ***
That's right sister!!! AND when you do get hit by the spoon/water spray situation it is usually as you are just about to go out AND in the worst place possible!!! So it looks like you didn't make it to the loo in time!! The trick is to have children and get them to wash up Although the effort it takes to get my crew activated it is sometimes easier to take the risk and do it myself (the crying face)
Hey, the crying face is working! See, Bondy, this is the 'advantage' of being short. I'm closer to the ground, so when I cop spoon-spray, it hits me just under the bra, or on the tummy, so it looks like I've been sweating profusely (yik, how do I do a throwing-up smilie?). My folks have a dishwasher, which I don't use coz a single person doesn't generate that many dishes.. Last night I opened it for the first time, to find that they hadn't emptied the gunk-basket (the thing that stops bits of food and other horrible things off the plates getting down into the pipes) before they left, and it's been festering in the moist darkness for the better part of three months. I'm considering ripping the damn dishwasher out and setting fire to it in the backyard as a viable alternative to cleaning it.
Oh,i HATE dishwashers.Esp.when people have the dishes sitting in there for a couple of days waiting for it to fill up-blaggghhhh-i mean for goodness sake just wash the damn things-take a risk with water spray and all-and then let them drip dry. I think they're a revolting appliance and am even more convinced of it after what you said about the gunk basket,jodie .
