I can't wait to get out of here so I can stock up on all those stuffed bunnies and chickens that are on clearance now. Look out, world, nobody gets in my way at a big Easter markdown event!

Maxine's Spring Cleaning Tips

If you're not saying, "Ah! Spring!" but are saying, "Ah choo! Spring!" it may be because of dust mites. Dust mites are microscopic insects that can cause all kinds of health hazards. And let me state, for legal reasons, they are not "some kind of big fakey scam designed to cheat honest, hardworking people like me (except the hardworking part) out of their savings." Also, if anyone reading this has any pull with the Exterminator's Anti-Defamation League, let me know.

You can get rid of the mites and the dead bugs in the window sills and the dust on the ceiling fan blades with a good, thorough spring cleaning. You can also get rid of nagging debt by winning the lottery, which in my case is more likely than the cleaning.

If you're averse to doing the dirty work of making things clean, you could hire a service. First, you have to interview candidates, then you have to check references, then you have to buy a secret camera to monitor them. It's easier to just move.

The key to spring cleaning, then, is found in the name of the chore. It's spring. Go outside and enjoy the wide array of things you can't complain about indoors! And as a bonus, once you're outside you can't see the mites or the dead bugs or the ceiling fan blades, so why worry?

Hee hee, I have a secret!
You'll never guess what I'm having for lunch today, but if you could, you would be so jealous! I'll have to thank someone very special for this great recipe, and a greeting card just might be in order!

Luckily for "someone very special," we just got a new shipment in today with lots of diet jokes. You will just die when you see them. There is even a Maxine card where she is carrying her refrigerator to the sofa!

And by the way, I substituted coffee grinds for the truffles, and you can't even tell the difference. I felt so clever.

Finders, Keepers!
I just saw the cutest magnets today! There was a boy pig and a girl pig sharing a beach blanket. Both of them were wearing swimsuits and sunglasses, and they were smiling like they were really at the beach!

Current Mood: chipper
