So you know we're having this big party tomorrow night. And we are expecting about 40 people, all of whom could be expected to scrutinize our slovenly lives, if they so desire, so some cleaning was certainly required.
Our first mistake was changing all the burned out lightbulbs in the entranceway and the hallways leading to the bathrooms, which of course nicely highlighted just how scuzzy the walls were. It's the domino effect at its most evil here. My fingers are worn to nubs, my face looks like a ripe tomato, and there is sweat dripping off my head. But my fuck, the house looks GUUUUUD! In fact, I'm thinking I will not allow anybody in the house after all.
I cheated on my Friday random playlist this week. I needed something lively to get me through the house cleaning, and my computer started out with the Be Good Tanyas and then Ron Sexsmith, who are all very fine musicians, but they just don't cut it as house cleaning companions.
Instead, I put my (now 8 hour) party playlist on random. Now that's what I'm talking about:
1. Me and the Major - Belle and Sebastian
2. Small Parts - the Oohlas
3. Planet Claire - the B-52's
4. the Fallen - Franz Ferdinand
5. Girlfriend in a Coma - the Smiths
6. the Looks - MSTRKRFT
7. Ring the Bells - James
8. I Love You, Hipster Darling - the Awkward Stage
9. Confessions of a Futon-Revolutionist - the Weakerthans
10. Gold Lion - Yeah Yeah Yeahs
