Sinks...

... I am king of the kitchen here in my humble habitat.... I cook 99% of all the meals served... and I'm a pretty dab-hand at it too - even if I do say so myself...

.. but my peeviest of pets - when it comes to My Domain - is seeing the sink dirtied...

... it spins me up like you cannot imagine.... verily, of all the blights to hit a kitchen, I hate dirty sinks the most... you show me a person who has a dirty sink, and I'll show you a complete reprobate... there really is no excuse... I mean, when you are at a sink you are surrounded with scrubbing brushes, rags, and cleaning liquid.... AND water....

... look, a sink and wash basin are a great social yardstick... waltz into someone's castle and spy a pile of dirty dishes cluttering the sink?... a rascal may be found lurking somewhere nearby... probably eating potato chips..

... sure, sure.. I know that there are times when other duties drag you away from the piled dishes... and that is only natural... hey, people get busy.. I can hang.... I understand.... but visiting someone who has dishes from a meal two days ago languishing in crusty, abandoned purgatory is just plain disgusting... and hey, after two days?... I'm sorry to report this to you, but you are a comprehensive degenerate... and desperately need to be dragged off and shot.... multiple times..

... personally, I'd rather see a steaming pile of fresh shit on the rug than a dirty sink... because, well, you aren't going to be eating off the rug... but you use that sink to prepare you meals!...

... a clean, sparkling sink is a sign of a pure heart, children.. and hey, I may not vacuum worth a damn, but by God, my sink is clean....

Funny you should mention that... I'm weird about the kitchen, almost psycho. Some people can't go to work without making their bed, or tidying up the living room... but me? I cannot leave the house knowing the kitchen is dirty. It would bug me all day.

I must confess... I was a member of the 2 day club. I would let dishes languish in a sink full of water until new breeds of critters would emerge from the protoplasmic ooze. The bathroom was no Shangri-La, either. Ah, youth.

Now, Clorox and Lysol are my friends and boon companions. I think all that hippie-length hair I used to have was draining my innate cleaning abilities. Once it all got cut off in the mid-90's, the general squalor receded. I got a better job, too. Funny how that works...

I'll have you know, mister, that I *don't* eat potato chips!!

And stop looking at my sink!

(*wink!*)

Two day club?

Heh ... not that I'm boasting or anything, 'cause I'm rather ashamed of it, but I'm a long-standing member of the two-month club ...

And yes, I do wish someone would drag me off and shoot me multiple times, if only because I wouldn't have to do another dish for as long as I live.

I hate 'em.

I'd pay someone to do them for me ... in fact, I'd clean their entire three-story home in exchange for them doing my dishes.

[am I still welcome in your home?]

Yay! Another sink freak like me!!! We could start a club. I am really anal about cleaning my kitchen sink with cleanser and fresh rag EVERY DAY and I'm super crazy about changing the dishcloths (up to 3x a day depending on kitchen activity levels). I'm not a crazy clean freak but I am picky about that...VERY picky! Shoes & kitchen sinks - we've got at least two things in common!

My kitchen is similar to when I am working surgery... above the waist... it is clean, below the waist, it doesn't matter...

So don't look at my floor.

Dude... I put the "pro" in "reprobate."

I don't have 2 day old dishes, my dishes do get put away continually all day, but for some reason, my sink doesn't get cleaned unless its night and I'm doing the end clean up for the evening. My kitchen is clean every night before I go to bed... but during the day? Eh, hit or miss.

I think that puts me in that reprobate area of which you speak.

Our kitchen is spotless except over weekends when our domestic help does not work.
Living here means that I can honestly say that I have not washed dishes in 20 or more years.

speaking from the point of veiw of someone who's dishwasher is currently dead....for one week...

ughhh..

I loathe ANY dirty dish in the sink, it will drive me crazy. Eat wash done...

My sink is clean at 2 points of the day...I mean it is never filthy, but I shine her up 2 times a day.

I cannot relax unless I know my kitchen is clean and dishes are done and put away...

That is why I have doors, close them, dirty sink goes away...

A day late and a dollar short but... were you channeling Acidman or something? That sounded like some of his barking at the moon shit.

Why can't we all just get along?
