My parents are sooooo annoying sometimes.

My parents are the type of people, who, like to pretend that they're house is always spotless. So, right before company comes over (that is, people who don't come over often enough to know the truth) they go on a cleaning spree. Everything is cleaned, and put away. Every room in the house is vacuumned at least once, the rooms like the family room and living room are usually covered twice. Anyway, so, I wanted to have some people over tonight to watch a movie tonight. No biggie, right? Wrong, my parents said that it was okay as long as I cleaned the kitchen, family room, and the bathroom. *sigh*

On the subject of annoying things, my younger brother just started playing with his 'bop-it extreme'. All I can say is, AHHHHHHH! I'm thinking about 'accidentally' dropping it on concrete the next time I get my hands on it.

Well, I should probably get back to cleaning, wouldn't want my friends to see a sock laying on the floor or something sitting out on the counter.....

I didn't hear about a party. Lemme go check my messages....

Nope, nuthin'. You can't be havin' a party without me. I don't believe it.

Bryan, you're too busy for us now. Mr. Graduate.

But yes, Mandy, I know the feeling. If people are jsut stopping by to pick up a DVD or to pick me up to hang out I have to scrub the bathroom spotless. The one exception is Zach, then again he just walks in without knocking/ringing the doorbell like he lives here. Then again, he kinda does...

Secondly, I don't mind cleaning for having people over that I invited. But when Mom invites people over for dinner and I have to vacuum and clean and scrub for them I just don't understand. I clean when I invite. Shouldn't she clean when she invites?

Mandy Quast said...

LOL! I'm sorry Bry, but Matt does raise a valid point. And as for the cleaning, I hate cleaning, no matter what the circumstance. I'll do it, but that doesn't mean I'm gonna like it.

Goliath said...

Dishes I enjoy and by that I mean a sinkful of hot, soapy water and a drying rack. Not a dishwasher. Those are so stupid. You end up dealing with the same dishes twice: loading and unloading. I'd rather jsut do it once and be over with it...

Well Mandy, I must say that your house did look spleded. I would have never known it was dirty... nor would it have mattered. You did a great job.

I do however understand your point. It's not very cool.

Bryan said...

I love the look of a spleded house - slped as far as the eye can see. Just wonderful.

Rational Icthus said...

Hmm... I own my own house. Know what that means? If I want people over and it's dirty, well, then I'm gonna have a party with a dirty house!

That is, uh, after I finish all the cleaning that, er, Jillian wants done before they all get here...

Rational Icthus said...

And Bry, there was a limit to the amount of hair that could attend the party. Your chest hair alone put you over the limit, not to mention that bush you're growing on top of your head.

;)

Mandy Quast said...

Okay, while Chris does have a point about the hair limit, I would appreciate it if you guys refrained from winking at each other-Kinda creeped out.

Rational Icthus said...

Huh?

Goliath said...

Chris, Bryan may have a lot of hair but that's more than we can say for either of us. I'm going bald up top, although I think it's a lot faster than you.

As for chest hair, you're the one with the rug stapled to his chest. Bryan's chest hair is nothing compared to yours, or mine for that matter.

Mandy Quast said...

Why must you insist on putting those terrible pictures in my head, Matt? I really didn't want visuals of you, Chris, or Bryan for that matter, but now they are there...Thanks to you.

Stacy said...

Ok well I think I may be the only one in this conversation who enjoy's cleaning.

I will have to agree with Matt on washing dishes though, I love doing them the old fashion way. I have one of those great drying racks, they are the best!

And I hate to say this, but I'm also going to have to agree with Bry...I also went back and checked my messages and I'm pretty sure there wasn't an invite on there from Mandy. Sure she invites my little brother but not me = (

PLEASE.........NO MORE MENTAL PICTURES OF "THE BOYS" & THEIR HAIRY CHESTS!!!!!!!

Mandy Quast said...

Sorry Stace! But somehow, I didn't think you'd be able to make it. Next time, I'll make sure you're the first one I even think of!
