Re: Stacks

Fun fact: I hate doing dishes on days when I've gone to work, but when I have the day off it's one of my favorite things to do. I love putting on some music and doing dishes while I've got some bacon and eggs frying. I usually take little breaks to dance, doing the ubiquitous "Right step, toe. Left step, toe." white-guy dance seen at wedding receptions everywhere. And there is snapping involved, usually.

This morning the music involved was a new CD by Bon Iver. I would recommend it for fans of Iron & Wine. Except that the guy sings in falsetto, so if you don't like falsetto, I wouldn't recommend it.

Another fun fact: Both the Jeanners and I HATE to wash silverware, at any time of day or night, whether we've worked or not. Washing silverware sucks. So we would always end up doing all the dishes, but leaving the silverware to pile in the bottom of the sink until we were entirely out of silverware, and then we would be forced to wash them. Well, we recently came up with a decent solution to this problem: we took about 75% of our silverware out of the drawer and put it in a box above our cabinets. Now we only have about 4 of each denomination of silverware in the drawer, and we wash the silverware much more regularly.

The Jeanners is at a strawbale insulation workshop today. She'll be back this evening, and then goes again tomorrow. I'm off work both days this weekend, so I'll be on my own both days. So far it's been pretty uneventful: dishes, white guy dancing, a trip to the market, backing up computer files. A little straightening of the apartment, taking out the trash. Weighing my keyboard to see if I'll have to pay extra to fly it to Alaska. I won't.

Jeanners and I had pizza and salad last night from a local pizza place where we'd never eaten before. It sucked. Experiment failed.
