So I used to have two cube neighbors when I moved in to this office. K, who is the IT businesswoman supreme, and R, sushi lunch partner and king of snark. R was replaced by a Truman Capote guy. He just made an odd bit of conversation that ended with "if I mistake your cube for mine one more time I'm going to end up in your lap". No, Truman Capote, I don't like teh weenis.

Tub = pwn3d. Bathroom floor = pwn3d. Toilet = pwn3d. Counter = pwn3d. Insecurities and hang-ups = pwn3d. I actually managed to break the mop I was so hardcore. I tore up a Chore Boy heavy duty sponge in one use. Bon Ami is awesome, and it still took three passes with it to get the non-slip part looking passable. Magic Eraser does nothing to mildew in tile grout or rust stains on fiberglass. Tilex mildew root penetrator is useless unless combined with some kind of crazy-ass wire brush which I don't have. Will get one. Next, on to the kitchen and laundry room, plus sheet washage and a second vacuum pass.

Your icon is the new brawny man! He's not as manly as the old one with blonde hair and a moustache. At least the old one looked like a lumberjack. :(

Heh, now I'm all "now that's a bad little boy" with my dog-nose-paper-towelling prowess. Couldn't think of a better "domestic badass" icon than that guy. Ooh, now that I think about it, I could've used Mr Clean. The new commercials with his creepy digital bulge are gross enough to be funny.

What spurred this cleaning craze? And when will you be showing up at my place?

It's a long, long story, but suffice to say it needed it badly and I had been neglecting to do it myself. As for professional cleaning services, that may just be the workout I needed now that I've bought a shitload of new cleaning supplies. Per hour price is negotiable!
