Random Thoughts: Reposted Because Blogger is the Worst

I declared war on my bathroom last night. It was a terrible fight. A war on soap scum. Seriously, I don’t think I’ve ever experienced anything like it. The war lasted for hours (literally), but I prevailed. My allies in this war deserve all the credit in the world. They are Clorox scented wipes. Not only did three quarters of a roll of Clorox wipes lay waste to the evil forces staining my sink, toilet, and tiled bathroom floor, but they also aided in the most incredible battle of all; the battle for my bathtub and shower.

Never before has so much soap scum amassed in one location. Clorox wipes served their purpose, but the battle was truly won because of Clorox Disinfecting Bathroom Cleaner. Both the foaming and spraying features were vital in making my bathtub look the way it does today. And though my hands were searing in pain from so many chemicals entering my bloodstream from the cuts and scrapes I got while cleaning, it is a war that had to be won, and it is a war that was won. As I walked into the bathroom this morning and shielded my eyes from the gleam coming off of my sparkling bathtub, sink, and floor, I smiled the sweet sweet smile of victory.


Tomorrow is Ash Wednesday. I still haven’t settled on what I’m giving up for Lent. I normally give up pizza, candy, and chocolate, but so long as I am on course with getting in shape, these three things are a bit outdated because I am not eating them anyway. Therefore I am opening this up for discussion. I need help deciding what to give up. Give me ideas.

I also need help finding a church for Ash Wednesday Mass. There is a church down the street from where I work, but if you know of any in the Crystal City area I would greatly appreciate the tip.


I had a real tough time trying to figure out how to properly spell panty hose. I didn’t know if it was “panty” or “pantie” or some other variation of the word that I would never need to know because I’ve never had to buy them before. I also had a lot of issues with whether or not it was “hoes” “hose” or “hos.” So I started google searching, and I have to say, I’m a little concerned. Turns out if you search for “panty hoes” on google, a number of websites show up that are probably not appropriate for work. Porn. SO MUCH PORN.

I didn’t click on any of it, I know better than that. I did however wonder what sort of pornography would prominently feature panty hose (proper spelling) to the point that the movie would be named after them. Hmmm……thanks to Marie for helping me figure out the proper spelling.


As far as I can tell, the uniform answer for “why do women wear skirts when its cold” is, “because we like to look cute, and pant suits are usually not cute.” Thanks for clearing that up. PS: You look adorable when your nose is running and you are hacking up a lung because you caught a cold from walking to work with no pants on when its 10 degrees for three straight weeks.


All of the women who have been clamoring for a Hot Male Celebrity Draft can finally take a deep breath, or get really upset. My friend Taylor who writes Ahlan Wa Cherrio is in the process of doing just that. Her draft is a bit different than the one I did. They have 11 participants (I think) instead of 5 (6 if you count Team Britney Spears), and they are only going for 12 rounds instead of 18. They’re also doing it entirely through email, which may take them a little while. Taylor has been tweeting some play by play on specific picks, so head over there if you want to get an idea about who has been picked so far.

You better believe I’ll have comments on the draft when it is up on her blog.


The New York Rangers are terrible. So are the Knicks. The GW Colonials can’t buy a basketball game. At least Jeff Gordon finished second place in this week’s NASCAR race. Is it time for opening day yet?

  4. Your post kind of reminded me of the blatant promotional scenes in the Biggest Losers for sponsors like Cheerios and Ziploc — what is Clorox giving you?

  5. you have some sort of affection for “Jeff Gordon”? this confuses me and bothers me on many levels.

  6. Love Jeff Gordon. He’s my favorite driver. I know I’m in the minority on that one, but it’s true.
