Wasn't I going to pay you to help design and decorate my apartment. Would you consider expanding your responsibilities to "all shit I don't want to do that you happen to think is fun"?

Edit: Note to self: try to find a girl to marry who thinks all the shit I don't want to do/don't care about is fun to do by herself...


This is my plan for a husband. Somehow I don't think we'll be successful in our search..


Wait, do you want to have a husband who wants to do the things you don't, or have him be the one who doesn't care so you can pick whatever you want...

Regardless, I'm sensing a two birds/one stone opportunity here :D

Hey on the graduate student loan application did people on here just put 3 courses under each quarter you were enrolling in?

It has varied among us between 3-5. most of us don't think it matters.

Makes sense. Time for alpha to start trolling outside of culinary schools for menfolk with dogs. I feel the same way about laundry and anything involving decorating or making things look "nice".

I really, really, really don't want to live in Regents. As of now I think it's just our backup.

The list of things you aren't gunning for is shorter.

Same here! I kinda enjoy folding clean laundry... And I can't stand it when dishes pile up in the sink and so I always have to do mine immediately even though dirty dishes gross me out.

That dog looks JUST LIKE my dog. I've been sent that video soooo many times.

I had an ex-moocher/houseguest who loved doing laundry. Problem was, whenever she did my laundry (and she wouldn't ask beforehand, just do it), I had weird stains and rips. So angry.

I actually really enjoy cleaning bathrooms. I think it's because it's a once/week job and you get to make things shine. I also like grocery shopping and walking dogs.

I hate: Dishes, picking up papers/books/clothes.

Wow, what a quiet couple of days...

Since there has been some talk of knitting, I thought some of you might be interested to hear that the University of Chicago Hospital has the largest neo-natal intensive care unit in the midwest, and they are interested in having people knit hats for the preemies (and also for chemo patients).

Preemie hats are a really quick and relaxing project for experienced knitters, and a great way to get into knitting with a quick and easy project if you are interested in learning. I made my first one today and it was really fun! :D
Here it is:

Thanks! I'll be happy to teach anyone who wants to learn how to knit and/or how to knit a hat. It's so much fun and so much easier than non-knitters often think... in the last couple hours since I posted, I started and finished another one.

Having almost endless free time is so amazingly awesome!

Good god, coolgreen, your stitches are so even! I'm insanely jealous. I've only got the plainstitch down, and even that looks misshapen.

Could you knit...dog sweaters??????

Well, I have never knit a dog sweater, but my mom has knit these two for our dog

I think it wouldn't be much different than making a human sweater... you would still do some shaping and seaming, just in different places.
