Print Story Laundry Day!
By misslake (Thu Apr 06, 2006 at 03:25:15 PM EST) rmg's laundry day (all tags)
rmg's laundry day was particularly exciting for me because it was also my first day at my new job.

pictures inside (have no fear, there is no cleavage anywhere in this diary)


today was a perfect day for bananafishlandscaping. warm and sunny, but not too hot. it was so sunny and wonderful that, upon arriving home, i had no choice but to change into the new strapless dress which i made myself last week out of one of erso's old scarves.


i collected the laundry from the sundry spots it was scattered about the room and prepared, with much rejoicing, to celebrate rmg's laundry day.

first, i stole some canadian quarters from 256.

while i always try to spend all my change and keep only the newest crispiest colourful bills in my purse, 256 prefers to spend only bills in his day to day consumption, collecting his change in a bowl on the bookshelf.

my laundry adventure next found me on a quest for soap, wherein i infiltrated misstrish's room whilst she was away earning rent. soap was found!

using my strong girl-muscles, i carried the laundry to the local laundromat on bloor. i long for days past at george's laundry on ossington. the place nearest home these days is run by an unpleasant persnickety man who leered at me over his SARS mask and counted my quarters twice before exchanging them for loonies.

my dirties filled two whole machines. (second machine not exactly as shown.)

i returned home and played around on HuSi while waiting for it to be time to transfer my clothes to the dryer.

when i returned home this time, i found that 256 had arrived from work during my brief absence. we prepared delicious dinners which we enjoyed with a cheap but tolerable Syrah.

i made a somewhat botched bubble 'n' squeak and 256 ate soba and cabbage (as he does five nights out of seven.)

256 took his turn to play on HuSi while i went to collect my clean clothes. upon my triumphant return, he surreptitiously took a picture of my hot ass as i climbed the stairs.

i was very happy to have clean clothes! thank you rmg!

another outstanding laundry tale!

i must say, there is something particularly stylish and compelling about your prose, though i can't quite put my finger on what it is... just what is it that makes this text so different, so appealing?

[t]rolling retards conversation, period.

I think.. by Driusan (4.00 / 3) #4 Thu Apr 06, 2006 at 04:08:30 PM EST's the hot ass. That and the chair straddling look of ecstacy.

please, sir, i'm talking about the text. by rmg (4.00 / 1) #5 Thu Apr 06, 2006 at 04:29:38 PM EST
while some around here might see fit to type out their cat calls, hoots, and hollars and post them here, there, and everywhere, some of us have more refinement.

i was simply commenting on this elusive, evanescent quality to the writing in this diary, not on the pictures -- amusing as they were.

I didn't realize it's considered cat calling. by Driusan (2.00 / 0) #6 Thu Apr 06, 2006 at 04:40:07 PM EST
If it's echoing her own words.

the total equality with which i treat my words by misslake (4.00 / 2) #10 Thu Apr 06, 2006 at 05:57:09 PM EST
each one held in a harmonious balance. none made more capitol than another, simply by accident of composition. why should words following periods deserve an uppercase letter?!? aren't all the words in any given sentence equal in their value as essential to the communication? capitol letters are reserved for EMPHASIS or Artistic Purposes only.

[ Parent ]
Actually, by Weapon of Pack Destruction (2.00 / 0) #13 Thu Apr 06, 2006 at 07:03:26 PM EST
capitol letters are protected by the First Amendment.  Furthermore, sending them is always a capital idea.

[ Parent ]
ah, that's it! by rmg (4.00 / 3) #14 Thu Apr 06, 2006 at 07:10:02 PM EST
maintaining a text's harmonious balance with nature is paramount. the problem with capital letters is that they're just so big (and ugly!) -- they totally block the feng shui to the rest of the sentence. it's like a mountain range that blocks all the rain, creating a vast, arid desert at its foot. this, i believe, is what people mean when they call a text "dry."

I think you're confused by edward (4.00 / 1) #2 Thu Apr 06, 2006 at 03:40:38 PM EST
about being happy because of the laundry. Are you sure you're not happy because you're straddling a piece of hard wood?

? by misslake (4.00 / 1) #11 Thu Apr 06, 2006 at 05:59:52 PM EST
i am not straddling any piece of wood, hard or not. i am merely standing next to a chair, and enjoying the true bliss of participation in rmg's laundry day.

Hrm... by edward (4.00 / 1) #15 Thu Apr 06, 2006 at 07:15:38 PM EST
Well if you're not straddling what looks like the back of a wooden chair, I'm just going to call you missstumpy from now on. Where is your left leg?

[ Parent ]
i know this may a difficult thing to ask by 256 (4.00 / 1) #23 Fri Apr 07, 2006 at 04:09:45 AM EST
but if you would, for just a moment, look to the right of misslake's crotch, you will see the rest of the wooden chair and the situation should become clear.

perhaps you have mistaken my blue courier vest, which is draped over the back of the chair, for part of misslake blue dress.

Sir, with the utmost respect by edward (4.00 / 1) #24 Fri Apr 07, 2006 at 04:16:32 AM EST
if I could see where misslake's crotch actually was, I'd probably be able to see whether or not it is in fact being splayed by a thin piece of wood; however, it is difficult to figure out just what happens to misslake's entire lower left half in that photograph.

Eureka! by edward (4.00 / 1) #25 Fri Apr 07, 2006 at 05:11:13 AM EST
After much examination, it would appear that I have a new set of beliefs regarding misslake's legs and crotch.

I believe her left leg is bent at the knee, and resting on the seat of the chair. However, even in that position, her nethers are still clearly stimulated by the wood, and so her bliss is likely only partly laundry related.

um.... by 256 (4.00 / 1) #26 Fri Apr 07, 2006 at 06:06:20 AM EST
misslake is behind the chair.

Intimate contact, it looks like from here.

you are just too lovely.

My favorite pic is of you with the ecstatic look on your face that could only be the pure joy of clean laundry.

i would like to draw everyone's attention to by 256 (4.00 / 3) #9 Thu Apr 06, 2006 at 05:12:51 PM EST
the second photo: featuring prominently my phone on which, because i'm just that cool, i replace the antenna with an 8mm allen head bolt.

rock on.

also, thanks for washing my wool socks!

Between that by blixco (4.00 / 2) #21 Fri Apr 07, 2006 at 03:13:32 AM EST
and the fact that it looks as though your walls are in fact made of several layers of books, your geek cred (which was already solid) is now +1.

. . . I especially liked the last pic, throwing back the hair as if you're posing for Vanity Fair - nice stuff!

But do tell - the pink bra. Put there on purpose to excite the boys on this site, or a sexy mishap of photography?

posed by misslake (4.00 / 5) #19 Fri Apr 07, 2006 at 02:16:39 AM EST
256 helped me with he last pic, i thought i needed my most salacious laundry hanging out of the hamper. i carefully selected my stripey knee socks, and looked for some underwear. i then lamented over my choice of function over fashion, since i only wear sport bras and men's briefs.
"get your kylie minogue pink thingy!" suggested 256. "but it wasn't part of my laundry"
so i opened up my lingerie drawer, and pulled out my only proper bra, the kylie minogue designer bra that  one of our house guests gave to me. (he was an international lingerie salesman. he personally outfitted each lady in the house with bras and fancy panties all designed by kylie. she's trying to get her stuff into the canadian market.)

yes, you caught me. pink bra not actually washed as part of laundry day. it was added for titillation's sake only.

I like your purple wall by komet (2.00 / 0) #18 Fri Apr 07, 2006 at 02:14:54 AM EST
or is that fuchsia?

The best thing about HuSi, by blixco (4.00 / 8) #20 Fri Apr 07, 2006 at 03:09:50 AM EST
is all the women who post here (or who are posted about, or who are involved with the people who post here) are very attractive.  Add to that their obvious intelligence and wit, and I think we can safely, easily say that we're the home to the hottest women in the scoop universe, if not the universe-at-large.

Hottie! by littlestar (4.00 / 3) #27 Fri Apr 07, 2006 at 07:33:38 AM EST
I wonder if codemonkey is going to tell you that you are a man with a woman's butt now? Maybe not though seeing as you censored your boobies, perhaps it is only women who will show cleavage, not bootie who are men in disguise.

Also, your hairs are looking cuties now too. I so enjoy red hair.

Goddamn I love that book.

You know what I love about laundry? When you take the shirts out right from the dryer, fold them and put them in the drawer, then you go to bed, get up the next morning, have a shower and put on one of the shirts and it's still warm. I live for that feeling.

I got a new song almost ready, but I need to redo some parts. It's too rough right now...

imagine dancing banana here

I've not been blessed with a keen eye for fashion. by erso (2.00 / 0) #30 Tue Apr 11, 2006 at 09:34:14 PM EST
But that sure is a spiffy scarf. I'd say it looks better on you than it ever did on me, it rarely made my ass look quite as good while I wore it.

I'll be by for family night tomorrow after stopping by at misstrish's friend's house. Hope you're still awake by the time I get there :)

awesome! by misslake (2.00 / 0) #31 Wed Apr 12, 2006 at 01:52:19 AM EST
hopefully i'll be done work by 3 and can have a nice nap until 6, then i'll be able to stay up until 10pm.

i'd suggest that you could wake me up just to say hi, but i fear you've heard too many horror stories about me.
