Sweethearts, yes, you Androgoth, too, please do not feel neglected by my not leaving specks of wit in your comment boxes. I multitask with the best of Hydra’s eight heads. Yet, unless I clone a twin of mine, I too am limited by those blasted 24 hours of the day. Imagine we’d only have twelve. We might as well just let it all wash over us. Or focus.

Being Saturday morning, vacuum cleaner in hand (it just broke which is why I am on the blog), I had occasion to reflect on dirt. More precisely: How much of it we produce. Involuntarily. Blending out that which I know (like how many grams of dead skin we shed a day – no doubt someone in the food chain, say, dust mites, delighted) I am disgusted. DIS gus TED. Not by the debris. Give me dirt I’ll deal with it. Only two New Years Eve ago it only took me the whole of the evening to unblock the toilet. That’s fine. That’s life. Tells you all you need to know about next year’s shithole. What I bemoan is: The DESIGN fault. If I were god I’d hang my head in shame, go back to the drawing board, have a Eureka and tell all of us: It could have turned out so much worse.


Hugs and kisses,



  1. And boy didn’t he/she or/it make a mess of all bodily functions? Some were fun though!

  2. Yes, What a mistake to put the shit-hole next to the pleasure-hole.

    Besides the dead skin to vacuum, there’s hair. i could make a rug out of my hair that falls, that I pull out of the vacuum brush to avoid clogged brush or I’ll will need new one. Luckily hair still grows back in.

    Must go now to make use of the 12 hr Work Ethic that’s so important to us. Work, work, work. Did Martin Luther do that to us. (Not Martin Luther King. Way before that guy. ) Help me here Magpie. I’d look it up on Wikipedia but I have to get to WORK.

  4. What a wicked posting…

    I always say that one should always visit when one has the opportunity to do so
    Soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo just call in later, or whenever, or…

    I could have helped out with the cleaning you know? Oh yes just hand me the vacuum
    and I would have been hoovering away like a Zombie on Brains or a Skeleton on Weed…

    Have a great start to your week bitchontheblog

  5. Am surrendering the house cleaning duties. Who really cares anyway? And it never fails to get dirty again, so I’m writing instead of dusting. Join me Ursula. It’s ink pens against dust bunnies.

    • Renee, I know this sounds ridiculous, I use housework as an excuse. People will see you as busy (virtuous) and leave you to it whilst (unbeknown to them) my mind is free to roam, reflect on matters (not least your recent serendipity – I practically springcleaned the den, so thanks for that). Whenever FOS (father of son) and I didnt’ see eye to eye I’d not only walk the floor, I’d start clearing, cleaning, anything that channeled agitation into action. Before the Angel was born I’d sometimes leave the house, middle of the night, walk round the block before returning. Apparently a peculiarly male trait to “flee the nest” to let off steam. And no, I am not a transvestite.

      So, coming to a logical conclusion, the fact that I am currently not particularly up to scratch a reflection on a much more settled and calm state of mind. Just don’t tell my sister-in-law: The family joke being that my brother is jealous of her attachment to their vacuum cleaner.

  6. When it comes to design, I’m reminded of an ancient Chinese saying, “Simplicity is most difficult.”

    • Phil, you are right: Simplicity is a challenge. Do you remember the salesman’s mantra “KISS” (Keep it simple, Stupid)? My favourite “Less is more”, my holy grail: “Simple, yet stylish”.

      Which is why, if I weren’t already, I’d make the editor from hell. Why I allow myself total abandon by throwing myself on blogs and comment boxes without so much as a backward glance. Which is not the same as saying that I do not carefully think about that which any of you try to convey, here and elsewhere.

      Simply, your fool,

  7. I pressed the “Like” button. Don’t know why. Not a fan of dirt and not really into re-creationism. I just like to read what you have to say, I guess. 🙂
