Spring cleaning? Yes, I think I might wash the dishes. Do you think I should do my laundry too?

I decided to try that email address for soundoff myself; now I understand why you're using the moniker abit_pssd! Mine would have been more like "really_pssd"! LOL!

I just sent an message under the "contact us" category in the site map and it worked.

I was once told that Queen Isabella of Spain, the queen who donated some of her jewelry to finance Christoper Columbus's first trip across the Atlantic Ocean, only took three baths in her life?

Once the day she was born, once before she was married, and once before she was buried.

Wait. I guess that's only two in her life, huh? I was also told the reason was that in the Middle Ages, some believed bathing opened the pores to disease.

And, another thing I was told was the French invented perfume because of that.

Wow . . Just woke from a nightmare. Dreamed the recoil from my .758 RoeDy magnum was stretching my magazine springs and cracking the foundation on the bunker . . .

I'll be putting the lemurs in the back of the truck and going through the car wash when the weather gets a tad warmer.

Looking around, I appear to have lots of things with springs on them. Is it best to remove them before cleaning or just leave them on. Probably better leave them on. I'm good at taking things apart, not so good at putting them back together.

"Including the new guy."

And you assume he's new because . . .?

I think he's talking about abit_pssd, who has been an anonymous LJWorld.com user since March 21, 2012. According to my calender, that was yesterday, and that fits my definition of a "new guy" for sure.

He's made 12 comments so far, and about 8 of them seem to be complaints about the free 'Crave' he's getting in the mail.

I think his user name would not begin with abit if he were being charged to receive his copies of 'Crave', instead it would begin with Really.

I have a plastic storage bin with 24 drawers full of different size springs. I'll just clean 'em as I need 'em.

I would clean out my closet but I am afraid to find R. Kelly

rantor if you need a recoil spring for your 1911 I have three different kinds. In the bunker. All you had to do was ask.

I know what you mean, g_r. My friend, Gus, takes a bath every spring to clean the cache offa his laptop. He used to do it on the satidy night before Easter but that got too confusing, so now it's whenever he sees the first snapping turtle. And by then it's too late to scrub up down at the pond, he sez, because nobody likes floppin' their flapper around the snapper. Poor Gus. By the time he's clean he's dirty again.

Crave . . . ? Sounds like one them designer drugs. Probably illegal.

That would make a very good name for a cigarette brand!

"Do you plan on doing any spring cleaning/" There are two verbs worth looking at in that question. To plan is worth thinking about, but to do is questionable. The two don't always work together. as one doesn't necessarily follow the other.

I think I'll get my bills organized and decide which ones to pay.

LadyJ 3 years, 2 months ago

Wow, just saw all the springs a person would probably ever need on craigslist http://lawrence.craigslist.org/mat/2911654210.html

I don't make a special point of spring cleaning. That goes on year 'round.
