Random thoughts 8

It's Saturday afternoon, and I thought I'd sit down for a minute and write my Sunday morning post (so I lied, because by now its actually Sunday morning. "If you're reading this letter..." etc etc). Anyone who's been reading this blog for a while will know why... and as I need to conserve energy this is just going to be a bit of a light-hearted ramble. Hope that's okay.

So far (winks mischievously) only one reader here knows me in real life, but if you asked her she'd tell you that I'm a compulsive cleaner. Saturday (particularly because GG stays over on Saturday nights) is a big cleaning day in the WDKY household, and since I bought my iPod I tend to wander from room to room plugged in to music whilst the kids do their own thing. Yesterday, I spent the whole time listening to Toward the Within, by Dead Can Dance and I'm going to unashamedly plug it again. If you haven't heard it and fancy something new on your shelf, just buy it. Honestly.

I was browsing some blogs too, and found something that really is so funny that you have to watch it. Have a look at these guys - apparently they're available for weddings and barmitzvahs. ROFL!! Oh, and credit goes to Ashbloemstraat for a great link and what looks like a very good blog. I was going to leave a comment but it's one of those sites that require you to register first. No time for that kind of thing, not when there's cleaning to do.

Talking of blogs, I've modified my template a little bit, and I prefer it now. Caz (her credit's at the bottom of the sidebar, and I think she produces just the best templates around) has helped me modify the blog title so it acts as a link back to the homepage from anywhere on the site. The standard blogger templates do that, and it's pretty useful. I've also moved across to Blogroll, and if anyone is still putting links to other blogs in their template manually - what a difference!! Just needs a little tweaking to get it looking right. Highly recommended. Oh yes, and there should be a box at the bottom of the sidebar now that you can use to subscribe to updates. (I know...)

Well, later today we're going to go into town to pick out some new glasses for GG. Very domesticated, eh? No doubt I'll be getting a good seeing-to first, but who's complaining. Hope you're all enjoying the weekend...

PS I've just been watching that bloody Extreme Makeover: Home Edition... it's lucky I don't wear mascara.

cleaning? crying at Extreme Makeover? wdky, I'm starting to think that you're a bit of a girl... :-)

WDKY said...

LOL! I just have a thing about my place being tidy, so if that makes me a girl obviously I am one. The crying at EM:HE is just... normal.

well, I did once own up to being bi-curious... :-) Yeah, I sometimes get emotional watching EM:HM as well.

WDKY said...

Bi-curious? Why did you only own up to it once?

positronic said...

Hope everything's falling onto it's track at home and work. (just read your previous blog-entry) The "business ethic" thing is why I couldn't bring myself to stay in England after studying there. All work and no soul makes Jack a psycho. It's all about me, what's wrong with a manly man cleaning up and crying to Extreme Makeover every once in a while. I have to say I'm straight and am not bi-curious (end disclaimer) but whenever I see a dude with a body to die for, I can't help but give him the 'I wish I had your body' stare, which did put me in a sticky(easy!) situation once. The guy had a sixteen pack!!! My jaw dropped and I'm pretty sure I was drooling.

NewYorkMoments said...

Can you please come over here & clean my place?

WDKY said...

Hey Pos - nice to see you. I prefer a life ethic to a work ethic, and I know you'll understand what I mean. And please feel free to drool on... I should think everyone looks on enviously occasionally whether they admit it or not.

NYM, now you're taking the piss...

NewYorkMoments said...

No,I'm not. I'll reciprocate with something nice...I just HATE cleaning....I'm not very domestic.

zooz said...

Cleaning!!! You have to admit you're just the tiniest bit anal about it. Your 'untidy' is my 'this is as clean as it's going to get'. However....it does mean your jewel-like home is perfect.

zooz said...

I love the Chinese students. There's something about it which is heartening. China is so 'foreign' and seeing those guys being just like guys everywhere was good.

WDKY said...

That sounds like a deal I could go for, nym. And I'm thinking about a long weekend soon...

Zooz, I can't help it. I must be a metrosexual. And that's just what I thought about the Chinese guys.

kimmyk said...

I need my place cleaned up a bit....but only if ya do in tighty whities....ya feelin me?
also, i can not watch EM:HE because it makes me bawl like a baby.....waaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhh!

glad you're having a good weekend WDKY! Hope it carries into your week.

WDKY said...

Oh, I'm feeling you, Kimmy ;-)

NewYorkMoments said...

You HAVE to let me know if you come over.

WDKY said...

What - you think I wouldn't?

Blueprincesa said...

Hey, thanks for the links. Good stuff.

WDKY said...

You're always welcome, Blue...

Networkchic said...

You are such a girl...cleaning and you cry while wathing Extreme makeover. Geesh. Hee hee.

WDKY said...

nwc, I know you think that a "real" man who's also sensitive is the right mix. You can't fool me.

j said...

if i don't have to clean, cry all you want.

WDKY said...

Thanks J. But I actually don't cry very much. Not often at all, in fact.

Just thought I'd clarify that...

Ashbloem said...

You no longer have to register on my site. Thank you for the... well, the thanks!

WDKY said...

Thanks, and noted :-)

Oh, and you're welcome.
