You know what that damn thing is? It's a coffee filter separator. What stupid son of a bitch is going to shell out 1.29 for a piece of plastic that will aid him or her in the separation process of coffee filters?

Please tell me no one on this site owns one of those.

That dial thing people put on the front of dishwashers that says

CLEAN/ DIRTY


If the dishs are clean, take them OUT OF THE (sorry) dishwasher and then you can put dirty ones in it. Using the clean dishs out of the dishwasher makes everyone using them put the dirty ones in the SINK or elsewhere when there is a perfectly good spot to put dirty dishes...



ahem. the dishwasher.


When I explain this to people who use the CLEAN/DIRTY dial they look at me as if I am a visiting Martian.

You need to meet my husband. I don't for the life of me understand why he can't tell dirty dishes from clean. He has taken dirty dishes out of the dishwasher and eaten off of them. Ack! I'm thinking of investing in a clean/dirty thingamajig.

I confess, we have the clean/dirty dial. But we have a good reason for it. There are two of us, only, so it takes a while to accumulate enough dishes for a dishwasher load. And, we like to keep the sink clear because we've had mice (and they love to eat the food on the plates) and ants (same reason). And, we rinse the dishes, so it's tough to tell if a batch is clean or dirty unless you start taking out plates and inspecting them, one by one.

Okay?

Now, where was I? Oh, yeah, the tiny cuisinart we got when we were wed (a gift). It's too small to really chop scads of stuff and too much gadetry to bother with getting it out, setting it up and cleaning it for only a few carrots. So I use a French knife and a cutting board and leave the food processor in the closet. At least it doesn't take up a lot of room.

Then you need to teach him to look at that, you know, and not just open the dishwasher and grab things. :wink:

oh jespah!

The food processor thing? Yeah, mine sits in the cabinet too.

By the time I set it up and worry about cutting myself and cleaning it and all, I could've just whacked the stuff up myself.



ohhhh....but you can make pesto!!!!

Yeah, and I can just buy some at the store.

I just finished making egg-salad-with-cheddar-and-cream-cheese in my food processor. Egg salad tastes so much more refined without the blood from my knuckles.

Besides, pulverizing celery for egg salad or tuna salad or sardine salad or salmon salad, etc. means more vegetable moisture and less mayonnaise, hence fewer calories.

I only use my tiny cuisinart for salsa. It's the only dish I make that has nineteen ingredients to be chopped that all get mixed together in the end anyway.

I stopped using the bread maker when I discovered frozen bread dough.

I dearly wish to have two dishwashers... one for clean dishes and one for dirty. I am nothing if not lazy.

And someone tell Mr. B. about scissors. They're really handy for opening bags.






Who's watching American Inventor or, as I like to call it, American Personality Disorder? Some of those products were pure insanity. A toilet-bowl lid with an air filter? A sandbag filler? C'mon....

It turns out that these are frozen peanut butter and jelly sandwiches that do not have a crust.

Haven't you read Goldie and the Three Bears?

Peanut butter with chunks, white bread, no jelly, without crusts!

No.

Here's the method. All dirty dishes, rinsed or otherwise go in the dishwasher. Use CLEAN dishes from the shelves to eat off of until the dishwasher is full enough to run. When it is full enough to run, run the dishwasher.
(Now here's the hard part.) The first person up in the morning after the dishwasher was run (always run it at night) EMPTIES the dishwasher, putting all the dishes on the shelves.

Therefore, all dishes in a dishwasher are always dirty unless you are the first person arising after it has been run in which case it is your task to put them away. AND you won't have any mice because they can't get to the dirty dishes in (where are they?) the dishwasher and there are never any dirty dishes in the sink because all dirty dishes go in the dishwasher.

Natch?

So Joe I'm thinking your dishwasher method wont encorage the kids to be out of bed real early and as I have to travel half an hour to work I'm always the first one up so I get to unpack the dishwasher EVERYTIME.

The LED dress shirt: for the dork who mistakenly thinks he's gotten too cool to wear a pocket protector.

From $39.99 to $65.99, depending on which color of LEDs you think will go best with your Morlock pasty skin.

(The person who always empties the dishwasher is exempt from any other task he/she chooses. Grocery shopping, vacuuming, ironing etc. Assert yourself.

And.......

What is this? You won't believe it.

Coming to a bar district near you, the Pee Tree. This was designed by Joa Herrenknecht for use in public spaces. It is big, bright and ceramic, just pee on the tree itself and lets the urine run down, or pee directly into the receptacle around the base of the tree. The urine is then flushed down to the sewage canal in regular manner. ...

The Pee Tree


Yeah. I'd pay to see that in use. There isn't a guy who wouldn't over shoot the damned thing and what's a girl to do? --Be really careful about the depth of the squattage?

Nope. RP is up and out and in a hurry long before I am these days. The dial means he doesn't have to leave me a note. And we like it this way, dangit.

Joe--

The issue isn't dirty dishes.

The issue is household routine. Meddle at your peril.

I've just finished clipping the Sunday grocery coupons.

There must be a dozen for room deodorizers and scented oil and perfumed candles--when did we start to stink so monumentally?
