There's a zillion pieces of dirty dishes (at least 0.7 zillion cups n glasses) in my flat, they must have multiplied while I was at work, cos I can remember having cleaned them all with love and passion exactly one week ago - why does the storm not blow them away?!

Cos I know myself, I would wash dishes even more seldom...
(And then there is this acute financial crisis since like two years - always struggling to pay the bills that have to be paid , I don't want to take a credit, that's one of my principals... more or less my only one I figure Oh, I'm looking forward to be a postdoc - I'll be finally out of the low-wage sector! )
And actually I LIKE washing dishes by hand (I'm strange, yes, yes) - when I'm in it, but I don't like to START...

I *heart* decadents!

Hey, have I told you that I even more like other people's dishes (at other people's places I'm anyways almost the perfect little housewife sprung from a 50s commercial - oh, how my baby sis almost got angry at me when I started washing up our mess from New Year partying in her mum's flat... well she wanted me to watch more Beatsteaks concert videos instead I figure , she's a Beatsteaks addict!) - now I just need to find a person who's the same nut as me in this matter - for my housework

Two of the four longest wars
in US history were started by
the same man -- .
a record unparalleled
and unlikely to be beaten.

There is one man in history
who matched this record
for starting and losing wars.

Saddam Hussein

It's not strange Stephi, at least to me...I'm also a fan of dishwashing. I do a lot of thinking while I wash dishes. I also enjoy doing the dishes at friends' houses - it gives me the impression that I am purifying their environment and makes me happy. I'm less of a fan of housework though. Thankfully it is easy to find a cheap housework person in the neighborhood.

Here in my new apartment we have to do our dishes immediately after dinner otherwise the the periplaneta americanae that inhabit the building are drawn in and throw improvised sink parties.

^^Ah, somebody understands!

We have no cockroaches, but rats, in the cellar and I suppose also in the yard (I heard from one neighbour they saw one at the garbage containers, no wonder, it's a gourmet paradise for rats) - I don't mind them, I live on the third floor.

Washing up on Saturday was nice, cos I had company, my friend-who-is-back-in-Berlin-now-and-who-will-be-my-neighbour-soon watched me and while chatting about this and that we developed a new theory for disappearing socks - the washing machine opens a tunnel in time and some of our socks end up in Stone Age. Only by wearing our lost socks (in several single sock layers - the fashion standards back then allowed that) our ancestors survived Ice Age.

Oh, that's a nice one! My theory was that they disappear in some paralell universe to appease some angry god. I thought missing half-socks were some kind of sacrifice I had to accept as a fact.

did you know there's an episode of the ghostbusters cartoon that's about that parallel universe?

That's a rumour Hoyt brought up - obviously he smuggled it even into comics to brainwash the masses - in order to establish himself as deity...
