Another Spo Meme

OK, so I stole this from Dr. Spo, but I found it on Travel Penguin's blog first.  Props to both!  My comments in red.

1 Leaves the bathroom light on upon exiting. - never; I don't even turn it on cause I can pee in the dark

2 Leaves the TV going when he is not in the room. - never; I don't watch tv

3 Puts keys down next to the ‘key bowl’, not in it. The other fellow continually corrects this. - never; they go in my purse

4 Answers the phone (rather than screening calls) yet becomes annoyed it is a telemarketer. - never; I am a screener

5 Laundry is done infrequently, en masse, when there are no more clean garments, rather than in continual small loads. - 2 or 3 loads a week I do

6 Often eats standing up at the counter in order to watch TV rather than sitting at table with the other. - never; see #2 (heh heh heh, I said "#2")

7 Throws out recyclables even though there is a ‘recycle bin’. The other man retrieves and puts them where they ought to go. - NEVER!  Blasphemy!  Save the planet!

8 Directly drinks out of the milk carton. Despite twenty years of mutual germs this action makes the other one not want to drink milk anymore. - never; I get my calcium via greek yogurt or cheese or ice cream

9 Leaves half-consumed beverages all over the house. - spouse

10 Saves even the smallest of leftovers ‘to avoid waste’ only to have them thrown out later when they go horrid. - spouse

11 Won’t watch something on TV without doing two or three other things as well, only to ask the other what is going on. - see #2 (heh heh heh)

12  Plays Enya. - OMFB NO 1000 TIMES NO NEVER NADA NIL ZERO ZIP ZILCH!

13 Uses 2-3x more pots, pans, and kitchen utensils than is necessary when cooking. - spouse

14 Clothes are folded first by sorting them into taxonomies rather than as they come out of the hamper. We’ve learned clothes folding is best done solo. - never; you think I got time for this shit?  He hangs, I fold

15 Sleeps with the bedroom door open to the certain doom of us all. - both of us

16  Doesn’t put spices and herbs back to their original position which is ~ alphabetical order. - never; you think I got time for this shit?  Just put them back and no one gets hurt

Well, it seems that I am my own person.  Unique.  A blue diamond.  I AM WARRIOR QUEEN, HEAR ME ROAR!

    1. Sitting on a toilet while pissing can be done in the dark.

      STANDING in the dark and aiming for the bowel is an impossibility....

  5. Good to see your comment on #7, A.M. Amen! (I've said as much in a comment on Dr Spo's blog).

    I never knew (or had forgotten) that you didn't watch TV. I watch mainly news progs, some (classical) music and science progs - but my guilty pleasure is (keep this to yourself, please) is cop reality progs. It gives me a cheery lift to see wrong-uns getting caught!
    But in general, TV is something I could live without quite easily - though NOT so without a radio.

    Oh, and I see that I can put 'Enya' on the same list as 'Abba' as far as you're concerned. Oh dear!

    1. my recycle can-on-wheels goes out weekly to the curb; my trash can-on-wheels goes out monthly.

      as long as I have the radio (for baseball games) and the internet I am good.

      and yes, enya and abba are on my NO NO NO list.

    2. Abba!!!!! On a no no no list! Now that is just sacrilegious.

  6. I don't even turn it on cause I can pee in the dark. I knew you had another talent besides knitting. I wanted to post the bucket list and haven't, and now this. I gotta get my ass moving. Maybe Ill do this one later today. It's extreme windy out, and I don't want to muss my coiffure.

  9. Lovely answers. I can't help but wonder if there is a correlation between cat owners and seeing good in the dark?

  10. Do you enjoy peeing in the dark, Anne Marie? It must be quite spooky to hear the tinkle tinkle in the dead of night. Or do you find it romantic?

  11. 1) save lectricity turn it off baby!
    2) nope, no TV
    3) ain't got no key bowl, they go wherever they land
    4) screen 'em all baby, screen 'em
    5) laundry is done frequently one never knows when one might need it in a hurry
    6) gotta eat at the table so we can read blogs
    7) recycle every little scrap baby....it's our duty to be good stewards
    8) get a glass, hygiene is important and attractive
    9) empty the glass and place in dishwasher where it belongs
    10) save the leftover only when it's a full serving and eat it for lunch the next day
    11) blog, no tv needed
    12) Enya? What is that?
    13) use as few as possible, no need to waste water washing said the Californian
    14) fold them as random as they are picked up
    15) why would one ever close the door to the rest of the house? How would you know an intruder had gotten in if one is sealed in a personal prison?
    16) they go back into the drawer, that's enough
