The More of This or Less of This Or is There Any Difference

I ran into Alicia today at the grocery store. I showed her the great new mop I was buying to properly scrub all the ick in the basement.

I pointed out the super cool green bristles. "See? It mops and scrubs," I pointed out.

She sighed and gave me a sympathetic look.

Yeah, it's not nearly as fun as talking about fabric. I know.

los campesinos

I just need one which mops and scrubs unassisted.

God, I hate housework (but quite like buying cleaning products - how does that make any sense?)

I don't know, I once bought a broom at Target designed by Michael Graves that I raved to everyone about for quite a while (it had a very comfy handle) anything to make such a horrible job more easy and fun is a good thing right?

Maybe you should post about the mop, some of us would be interested.

OH, I don't know. I love talking about cleaning supplies and I think you need to post a picture of this wonder mop thingy because I've been in a mop crisis for ten years and am looking for the magic one.

The kind that actually cleans stuff up.

I want a robot mop, like those vacuum robots. It would be fun as hell to watch the dog chase it! I'm with PLO, please post about it! Thanks!

I need a "magic" mop...one that comes attached with a maid!!!! Who's with me?!? :)

Don't you wish you could just twitch your nose and be done with it?

I guess the plus side is you ran into Alicia, that's fun, even if the mop isn't.

Happy, late, Birthday to your big guy!

Mops are better than the alternative.

I'm with the others - post about it's wonderfulness or lack thereof.

And I sooo was in the middle of eating my Campbell's Mushroom Barley soup when I came across the burst drain pipe photos. Yeah, not really so hungry anymore.
You may want to invest in some Draino though. My hubby once pretended he was a he-man and tried to drill a hole in something using a screwdriver bit. Yeah....
I can sympathize.

I may be eyeball deep in work this week, but I don't think I'll trade luck with you...

However, a good mop is worth getting excited about. And a scrubber! Woohoo!

Know what else I like? Those washable microfiber cloths for dusting. I'm just saying.

I have this oval bucket so the mop fits all the way in... and on the top there is a tray for your cleaning crap, it fits in and you can carry all the shit from room to room with, like, one hand.

it is so fuckin' cool.
