sloppy joe

As some of you know, I own an 86-square-foot “box.” I take my box very seriously. I scrub the floors every other day so I can safely put comfortable floor pillows. I have devised ingenious vertical storage for things I own. Everything is color-coded.

My box is a small but very orderly fascist colony – germs are afraid to even go near it. I behead them and make sure their friends and relatives find out.

Parts of the totalitarian box and some pretend-art

When my box is tampered with, I get very frustrated.

Yesterday MSP came over with his PlayStation, which he put on the floor (gasp!) and hooked up to my TV. He parked his Sunday-sluggish self on my perfectly assembled sofa and played his video games for what seemed like an eternity, eating samosas (with sauce!) and drinking from a big tumbler of fruit juice.

He was there from sunrise to sundown. I pushed him into at least taking a shower by the 7th hour.

Unacceptable. But how do I tell him to be neater? Are men really this messy?

cj> why can't everyone just be neat?

jerm> i am part-lesbian, i think. i like looking at beautiful women.

ennui> yes, because all he does is work too hard and play video games in between. you should tell him he needs to lose weight. i do not think he believes me.

Hehe. I was gonna write a post on my boyfriend and his unbelievable incapability of keeping things where they were supposed to be. He came over to visit me for 2 weeks and he devastated my little room. Gosh, it's taken me over 2 days to actually straighten it all up.
