Receiving guests

I'm back and receiving guests. Note that I did not say, entertaining guests. I'm as boring as ever.

Radio question of the day:

83% of women say they like it when their man does this without them having to tell him to do it. What is it?
***************************

What I learned today:

Whatever you do, when you stop by the auto-wrecking yard, don't park your small car in a spot marked "compact." You'll be sorry.

****************************

We went to see another movie, Match Point. Woody Allen directed it. Don't go to see it expecting a comedy. Boy howdy! It is not a comedy. It's very good, but funny it ain't.

Funniest thing I saw at the theater was a diaper machine in the women's restroom. For a dollar you can buy a diaper! They come in different sizes too: up to 10 pounds, 10 to 20 pounds, 20 to 25 pounds, etc. I couldn't help but think that if some kid is carrying around 25 pounds of poop in a diaper, his parents oughta be changed too.

Probably some of you think that most of what I write is kinda sarcastic. And lots of people believe that sarcasm is the lowest form of wit. Yeah, like that's true.

Well, I can't waste all day here. I got stuff to do. You know, eat, drink and be somethin' or other.

Answer to the radio question of the day:
Empty the dishwasher. As if!

I would have been happy if he had moved his dirty dishes from the living room to the kitchen.
Oh well, guess you can't have everything and now he doesn't have me. Yay!

Fred said...

Well, next time I want something from The Missus, I'll just empty the dishwasher.

(Not that. You all have a dirty mind.)

KristieD said...

i think i would shit myself if my man actually put some dishes away all by himself. Really. I am happy when said dishes make it into the kitchen.
:)

Fuckkit said...

That's how they get so shiny. And here's me thinking it was the dishes fairies.

lime said...

i'd turn cartwheels if mr lime emptied the dishwasher!
tlp, sarcastic?? no way! say it ain't so!

Mike said...

I emptied the dishwasher just the other day, without being asked either...so there.

You? Sarcastic?? Shoot TLP, that's why I love ya!

bornfool said...

Ha! My wife has never had to ask me to empty the dishwasher. We don't have one.

Doug said...

I want to know how 88% of women know how they feel about that. Some of my brethren aren't setting the proper expectations.

My guess to the radio question of the day was "put the toilet seat down".
I read a review of Match Point. Supposedly it is a good movie and a storyline that wasn't expected of Woody Allen.

AP3 said...

I thought it would be "put down the toilet seat".

Yeah, I want to see that movie.... in part because it is so different for Woody Allen.

I thought that it was going to be dealing with something chivalrous such as helping on with the coat or maybe opening the door... something of that sort. The dishwasher!?! Those are some high expectations.

Libby said...

TLP! kev always empties the dishwasher (cuz i drop dishes...not on purpose, mind you...)...but i thought it was maybe "scoop poop outta the cat box"!!

Jemima said...

I plumped for washing up, probably on account of not having a dishwasher. Certainly is nice to have the load lightened. That's what you have kids for!

Excuse me, I have to go and throw a scrap of mouldy bread into the cellar where the kids are scrubbing.

Saur♥Kraut said...

I couldn't help but think that if some kid is carrying around 25 pounds of poop in a diaper, his parents oughta be changed too.


:D I agree.

I heard great things about Match Point. I don't know if I'm mature enough to enjoy it, however... My movies usually have to have happy endings and car chases.

Jamie Dawn said...

Your posts are often sarcastic and sardonic.
No, sardonic does not have anything to do with sardines.
I sure do love babies, but changing diapers is one thing I don't miss at all.

I can't IMAGINE who would accuse the TLP of sarcasm, the mind boggles.

Match Point? A tennis flick? Has there ever been a good tennis flick? Maybe it was croquet?

Minka said...

The thing I want a man to do without asking for it? Hmmm...stand behind me and put his arms around me. I love that!
I don´t have a dish washer :)

actonbell said...

You make me laugh:)
The dishwasher? Hmm, I never would have guessed that, and not just because we don't have one. I like Monika's answer, but would have guessed something along the lines of Aral's.

kenju said...

I love sarcastic humor, TLP. So keep it up, please. I must be lucky; mr. kenju empties the dishwasher all the time.

Tom & Icy said...

Sorry about your car. We will learn from your experience. We parked in a handycapped zone and someone complained saying we weren't handicapped and we told them the car is!

Peter said...

Hope you haven't had your car compacted Lucy?
Sarcasm may be the lowest form of wit, but it's still a form of wit, any one who's complaining here is pretty hard to please.

Sar said...

If sarcasm is the lowest form of wit, I must be the lowest form of audience, cause I love it!

Hubby probably answered along with those 88% because he's the one that always unloads the dishwasher. Sometimes I can't find where he put away my pots or pans, but I don't complain.

Bela said...

I don't have a dishwasher - mechanical or human (it always makes me hoot with laughter when I hear someone washing up dishes in a restaurant be called a dishwasher in American films).

Whoever said that about sarcasm probably couldn't understand it.

The Lazy Iguana said...

Empty the dishwasher? I use the dishwasher as a cabinet!

1. Clean dishes are in the dishwasher. Always.

2. When you need something, get it out of the dishwasher.

3. dirty stuff is in the sink. ALWAYS.

4. When the sink is full, the dishwasher must be empty. Transfer all the stuff from the sink to the dishwasher.

5. Add the detergent and press START.

6. Go to step 1.

Daisy Mae said...

I was gonna say empty the garbage. Can I get that phrase tatooed on his arm? That way whenever he reaches down to the garbage can to put an empty ice cream wrapper in it he will see the phrase EMPTY THE GARBAGE and know what his lot in life is. Men... Gotta love em.

schnoodlepooh said...

I was going to say 'take out the trash'. Oh yeah, now I remember why I'm divorced. Sacrasm works just great for me.

dddragon said...

I was also going to say to put the toilet seat down. But my Nod doesn't do that. I'm the one who has to be reminded to do things.

you guys ~ not THAT!

sherle said...

So sorry about your CAR!!!!

BarbaraFromCalifornia said...

I loved Match Point! It is so philosophical...

In my house, I expect my husband to LOAD and EMPTY the dishwasher!
He doesn't like the way I line up the dishes, so he gets that job!
