Stranded at the office


I’m stuck here at Xbox HQ. I can’t go home for another hour because there are people in my apartment cleaning it. This is mildly horrifying to me (and probably more horrifying for them!). I am a slob. As anyone who has seen my office can avow. The even fewer people who have been allowed to enter the sanctum sanctorum that is Casa de TriX could tell you that my apartment isn’t quite as bad as the office, but it’s getting there.
 
You know when you move into a new place you vow that this time you will refrain from tossing your Cheeto wrappers behind the couch and will do the dishes as soon as the limp Coco Puffs have begun to ferment in the milk? *Sigh*
 
I had such high hopes for this apartment, too! When I moved in two years ago, I was moving out of a house I shared with a boy who had very different tastes in decor than I do. Do animal skulls and a gun cabinet paint a picture for you? He thought it would be really awesome to have a tree stump for a coffee table.
 
Anyway, when I got my own apartment I vowed that this would be a Trix-only zone. I could put up travel posters and make a tower out of empty Tiffany boxes and my shoes would have free reign, and by god it would stay clean! But the next thing I know I’m patting my body dry with approximately 50 quicker-picker-uppers because I haven’t done the laundry and I give up and buy plastic spoons for my Ben and Jerry’s because I don’t want to wash the real spoons.
 
What was I saying? Oh yeah. So my dad hired a couple of chicks to clean my apartment. Very cool of him to do. But I had to spend six hours this morning cleaning up enough for them to be able to find the floors and countertops in order to clean them.
 
All I want to do is crawl back in bed and finish "Kafka on the Shore"!

  1. Sounds like someone has a case of the…Saturdays!

  2. Heheh. Be glad you had pros to come in and do that. I may be doing the same thing soon, as moving is on my horizon. Today, we moved four car loads of boxes that had been up in my sister’s attic for SEVEN YEARS into my garage. It was really a trip back in time for me. I found old Epyx Amiga controllers.. god I used to love those things. I found a box of Japanese SNES discs (the 3.5 ones that I could use to play Japanese versions of games or Sumo, etc.) It’s amazing the things I get excited about.
     
    What a Saturday for cleaning up.

    Simply take 10 minutes every day or two and tidy up around the place. I know it’s hard, but it became a habit for me after I kept doing it.

    forget cleaning, I live by the rule that if don’t stink it ain’t dirty.  I’m a total pig, and I love to eat in bed, even things like hamburgers and popsicles.

  5. If you can be happy about anything, it is that it is a total crap day in Seattle.  Not much else to do besides veg around the house.

  6. Sounds like Trixie knows how to get down and dirty. Like literally.But in all seriousness, sounds like my dorm room. We get to play a game of hopscotch every time we come in, simply because there are only a few gaps that have nothing their. And if you miss, you are either going to break something or step in something really gross (2 week old pizza woo!)

  7. Hey, how do you change your GamerTag picture to a custom one rather then the ones that the Xbox 360 provides for you?-Ryan

  8. The only time my house gets a cleaning is when my mother’s coming over.
     
    She doesn’t come over very often. :I

    @ least you’ll be happy with the end result. When the apartment is clean it’s going to be like those "While you were out" shows. 😀

    LOLSo you are worse than me. :-PI have a mania for cleaning things, but I need chaos! It is simply stronger than me.Having everything organized drives me nuts. I need a table full of sheets of papers, my bijoux all around and so on.Onething I do hate cleaning is the varanda. Since I live in a small town now and the idea of stopping every minute to say "good day" to someone I have never seen before disturbs a lot.Well, good luck with all the packing and unpacking.*have fun*

    Weekly cleaning is a must in the Malt household.  With three hairy dogs, if you leave it longer then a week it looks like the hardwood floors have grown carpet.

    So, how does it look now? Let me guess; you can’t find anything now, and in a day or two it will be back to the normal chaos you know and love.
