Written Notice

Dear Blog Land,


You were supposed to remind me to NOT wear the denim pencil skirt I put on today because it rides up and up and up. I can lose six inches off the bottom of this skirt by the time I make it to the copy machine. No one needs to see that. So while it is a very cute skirt, I can’t take the chance of getting a GFY scolding, skirt must be retired.

Which one of you was in charge of rotating the whites through in the laundry, because I can assure you, it has certainly not been accomplished and now the management will have to run the load again. And running the same load again (and, uhm, again) is just about the last thing we should be doing to celebrate Earth Day. I hope you feel OK about that.

Did we have a volunteer to chauffeur me to work, the store, preschool and back? Because I could really use some quiet time pretending to be contemplative and engrossed with important issues while wearing dark shades in the back of some sort of town car, I'm just sayin'.

And who, exactly, was supposed to remind me to go to bed? Fail.

This has all been very disappointing. If your performance doesn't improve, we’re going to have to talk about further disciplinary actions, up to and including feed termination.

¡Besos!

Twinners. Guess who else is celebrating Earth Day by having to wash her whites again x 2?

the MomBabe said...

NO! You cannot terminate the feed because I would miss you.

Mrs. Organic said...

Yes, well thanks for the reminder that there are whites in the wash - that would have stunk up the place to high heaven.

As I was driving to work, the radio asked me what I was doing for Earth Day, and I thought "driving my SUV across town with only me in it." Ouch. Strike one.
Then I read your blog and it reminds me "I didn't dry that laundry that has been waiting patiently in the washing machine, wet, for two days." Two more washes? Double ouch. Strike two.
How else can I harm my planet on the day meant to celebrate it? :)

Glad to know I'm not alone....

I hate cute clothes like the pencil skirt that in the end just don't really work.

Why can't more fashion collide with function? I have many a shimmy-ing skirt myself.

So here is what I do to get that smelly stench out of laundry that has been left in the washing machine... Instead of washing it again (it is already clean) I just run the rinse cycle and add a little extra fabric softner. Sweetens them right up. At least I am not running a full cycle again, and therefore conserving some small amount of H2O.

i think i was supposed to remind you that you are awesome. here you are.

I think that was Miss Musing's job.

OOPS.

As your conscience, I'd just like to point out that:

1. I TOLD you to go to bed while we were chatting at 10am when I was in London (I know that 3am was a little late to finally chastise you about it, but I was rather bored over here that morning.)

2. The note about the clothes should be found magnetised to your refrigerator. You might need to look under all the art projects.

3. I believe we own the same skirt. I had that problem but told myself that while n Europe, no one would notice as I scoot around the office yanking it down every 3 steps. You can use this same argument and apply it to the fact that you are always part European and therefore can be slightly riske.

4. Chauffeur will be provided in 7 days. Dark sunglasses will need to be provided by vous.

A la prochaine!
Ton Esprit.
TT

If you have a front loading machine it's not using that much water anyway, so I just run it on a short cycle. Vinegar works too on towels and such that get smelly.
I always do that, and now it's getting warmer, I'm going to be IN TROUBLE!!!! Take care!

Can someone be in charge of making me healthy snacks and taking the ice cream carton away from me after all the little hellions have gone to bed?

Shawn said...

Sorry I can't be of help in these matters---I need a valet for myself!

Britty said...

Way to go Azucar. I'm impressed with your memory of Cjane's writing. That girl didn't know what she was getting into, did she? :)
