Marnie Is A Slacker

Okay here’s the deal. I am a slacker. I have not done one thing around my house in the past week that could remotely be deemed constructive. In fact, the only thing I’ve done here at the house lately is read, sleep, shower, and drink coffee. I haven’t even cooked a meal since the spawn have been off gallivanting the land-o-Satan. I am taking the day off to do all of the cleaning, laundry, and chores there of that make up…….well, in my mind they make up purgatory. Yeah, I think if I had to draw you a picture of purgatory it would be a world of endless housework. Crappy house work like scrubbing toilets and cleaning grout. So here’s the plan; I am taking the day to get caught up and as I have the rest of the weekend off I will treat myself to a job well done by doing nothing but getting caught up on reading blogs and actually leaving comments.

Instead of leaving a funny story or antidote, I’m going to plug my other site and have you guys check out the photoblog….I promise to try and put up more funny pictures, need to scan a lot of photos as I’m more of a “film” girl and just getting around to the digital world. It's new but it's fun. Enjoy the picture of my first mammogram; that one always makes me giggle..

Cheers and much laughter for the rest of the day. Think of me on my hands and knees scrubbing bathroom floors and be glad it’s not you. If that doesn’t make you feel better – you are so screwed!

I'm working all weekend, so enjoy your time off! Thanks for inspiring my blog yesterday... I didn't think I'd have anything to write and there you said the magic word.

Argh! the dreaded housework.
I like the photo blog!

Mrs. R said...

See, I wouldn't call what you've been doing slacking, I would call it living...

Have a great weekend! Can't wait to check out the photoblog.

Sully Sullivan said...

Yeah, I bet your place before the clean looks like a crystal castle compared to my apartment. I've scheduled a massive clean up for Sunday which means that my apartment should be tidy by the end of August.

Alice said...

I do the same thing when my in-laws have the kids for a few days. I'll throw myself into superclean mode so I can feel deliciously free and non-guilty when I completely laze away the rest of the time.

JB – I’m so glad I don’t have to call you BJ…sorry. Work all weekend? That sucks. I’ll toss back a couple of colds ones for ya!

Quickie – House work? You’re doing housework? and thanx!

Mrs. R. – I am right at this moment living more that cleaning. Happy 4th!!!

Sully – I started last June.

Alice – If I ever get started it will be a miracle. So far today I finished one book, started another, went to a local museum with my friend Moo, swung by What-A-Burger for nutritionally valuable meal, shared it with the dog while watching The Twilight Zone and am now checking e-mail.

But I vacuumed!

Suze said...

I'll be cleaning like you this weekend I think - damnit. Teenagers make so much mess. Then again, I have taught my boys how to clean the bathrooms...Might get them to do it instead..

P.S. Nice to find another blogger with teenagers!

Queen Goob said...

Suze - Spawn and Spawnette are gone for the holiday so I'm enjoying some much deserved peace and quiet. And yes, they make a HORRIBLE mess; everything left in a trail behind them.

Cecile said...

Thanks for stopping by. I'm glad you like the hair cut. It is sooo easy to manage and I like that alot. I did a lot of house work this past Sunday. I swept and mopped all of the hard flooring surfaces of our 2000 sq ft. house. That was all but two rooms. I was off work today, but I start on a 7 day stretch tomorrow, so I tried not to do much of anything today. Hope to see you as a regular on the blog from now on. Oh and you can check out The Wild Onion too. It is a joint effort blog. Hope you have a nice and safe 4th of July.

I cleaned on Sunday and almost blew up my apartment. No more cleaning for me!!!

Drinking coffee is a required task. You should give yourself some credit for that one.

Cleaning sucks so much.

PracticallyJoe said...

Crappy house work like scrubbing toilets ...
Hey! That was pretty "punny"!

Brian o Vretanos said...

You've just reminded me that I should have cleaned my flat before I left town for 2 weeks - they were due to inspect the flat on Tuesday. I hope I don't get back and find I've been evicted...

Melissaria said...

Oh dammit, by the time I read this, I'd just spent my own entire afternoon scrubbing this new house into submission - everywhere I look, more filth that I hadn't spotted before! I'm not big on cleaning either - once the previous occupants dirt has been cleared out, I'll no doubt revert to being perfectly happy to wallow in my own with just the occasional once-over!

Ivanna Takurpicture said...

I knew you and I were separated at birth! I just noticed your photo blog the other day and I just started one as well! I've been a film girl all my life but finally took the plunge and got myself a nifty digital camera too! I'm lovin' it!!

kylie said...

that's a dirty word. please dont say it again
nice seeing ya at my place

Bee said...

I hate cleaning. I'd move but I hate that even more.

Derende said...

After spending a good part of the day slacking, I have to say, you have the right idea. I have not been filling my slacker quota lately, so if I don't shape up, they'll take my GenX credentials away.

The only thing that would make it better is borrowing the Polynesian dancers for a while. I'm sure Marie won't mind.

BTW thanks for your comment - second non-family comment on my stuff EVER! Woo!

LceeL said...

That is a seriously good self portrait on your photo blog. You're good. Very good.

Random Chick said...

Well, I'm here on Monday and I hope you survived your weekend in purgatory because if you didn't, I would be truly upset. I MUST read your blog daily or I get the shakes. So c'mon. Where's your post? What's keeping you? Did you get sucked into the toilet while trying to clean under the rim? Did you pass out from the smell of floor cleaner and are lying on the floor drooling? WTF?!

VE said...

That's it? I come all this way down my ridicously large blog roll and all you got for me is housework? I can get that at home! Oh, ok, I'll go to the photo blog then. Sheez...

Tootsie Farklepants said...

I cleaned my stove top today. And that's it.

Queen Goob said...

Cecile – I’ll be stopping by as regularly as possible with my schedule and no internet…..LOL

Bob – I read about your mishap and glad you’re okay. You may have to do a LITTLE housework but screw the stove!

Mama – I drink a LOT of coffee, can I take credit for the three pots I consumed on Saturday?

Joe – I so did not catch that pun….good job!

Brian – I gotta spare room if you’ve been evicted. Of course a room at a hotel would be cheaper due to the distance BUT it’s the thought that count, right?

Melissaria – I’m normally a wallower myself, that’s why it took more than a day to clean the house. In fact, I’d probably be named wallower of the year by the rest of the family.

Ivanna – I know who you are, don’t make me break the silence!

Kylie – It won’t pass my lips for another year or six.

Bee – I’ve been in this house for eighteen years so I don’t remember moving. Maybe that would actually be a better option for me at this point!

Derende – Thanks for coming by, hope to see you again soon. And I bet that first non-family comment was me, too. LOL

Lceel – Thanks for the complement, I like that photo, too. What sucks is most of my stuff is on paper/film as I’m not a huge digital fan. Ok, I wasn’t a big digital fan until I wanted to post my stuff.

RC – SORRY!!!!! Dealing with fuckin’ issues that were SUCH a pain in the ass. I missed you, too. Had to get caught up and everything, not done yet, will be up all night. Hope you’re doing great and keep me posted on Suzanne; I saw the devastation at her park and I’m praying for her.

VE – I love you, man. I’m honored you came all the way down the blog roll for nothing, just for me!

Toots – you may want to pass on a few tips to Bob, he almost blew himself up cleaning his stove.
