GOOD FRIENDS, OLD FRIENDS

What a wonderful surprise to wake and find that a very dear friend has visited while I was asleep.  Doris, my neighbor Deb and I tore up the town at the end of the millenium.  It was quite a time.  I remember once going out to dinner at a nice Italian spot... and fighting over who got to sit on the vibrating reservation alert thingie.  When asked if we were ready to order I pointed to a feature on the menu and asked... "We were wondering if this Meaty Italian has a brother?"  The waiter asked dear little Doris if she wanted to sit at another table... alone!  The three of us also cleared an Adult book and toy store when my friend pointed something long, spiney and black out to me and I exclaimed.... 'You put that where?'.  That was all in one night, there were many more, but not since she moved back to Germany, I miss you Doris!  My dishes miss you! (when Doris was here I didn't need a Dirty Dish Fairy, she was my Dirty Dish Fairy!)

On the subject of dirty dishes I thought I'd just toss in a couple of product endorsments.  No, I'm not getting paid for this.... hmmmmm, infact they may even charge me for it... so lets not let this get out.  Anyhow... for the dishwasher, try Cascade packets, with the orange colored Dawn in them.  They are awesome!  They even get 2 day old oatmeal off bowls!  Of course you have to actually load the dishwasher in order for them to work, and as my son found out... it will not dissolve green beans and macaroni... scrape the large pieces of food off the dishes first!

Venus razor by Gillette... best disposable razor in the world!  I don't even have to do a pre-shave with the weed-wacker first... it gets everything the first time around.  Oh, and guys, do you want to know why your armpits smell halfway through the day even though you've put deoderant on?  Its because you're just deoderizing your pit hair.  Shave it off and get the deoderant on your pits... thats the ticket!  And use the Venus razor... no razor burn!

And finally.... a word of advise to those out there who actually take advise.... Don't bake a meatloaf the night before and leave it in the oven overnight.  It will soak up the grease from the pan and when it cools it will stick to the pan... and no amount of reheating will release it.  It will take a chisel to get it out and it will no longer resemble a meat load.... more like a cow pie or something of similar qualities.  Well, I'm off to work.  Thanks to all who left words of sympathy and encouragement.  I needed them and took them to heart.

I had almost thought about adding a sort of Stepford Wives comment of the Day but Damn, Girl, you beat me to it.  Mine is--those Flushable bathroom wipes by the scrubbing bubbles are useless. They may be flushable, but they fall apart before you can even begin to clean the crud your kids leave in the bathroom.
love, Kas
