Friday Afternoon Confessional: The Full Housewife
I confess that yesterday, as often happens when I’m feeling down, I went on a massive cleaning binge. I cleaned the stovetop, ran the dishwasher (including the rack things from the stove), swept, mopped, dusted, and did the laundry. When it became clear that this was going to take basically all day, I figured I’d go “all in” and make dinner, too, timing it for approximately when The Girlfriend got home. I confess that last night I was considering waxing the bathroom floor but have now decided — at least for the moment — that that would be too far.
I confess that part of what had me feeling down was that I was suffering from “the article that will write itself syndrome.” I came up with an article idea, which excited me, but I kept trying to write prematurely, apparently not taking seriously the fact that I was writing about a book I had read through once, in comparison with a couple books I’d read more than five years ago. I would suggest that blogging has made me lazy, but I’m pretty sure I was impatient with writing from day one.
I confess that in the interests of giving her Mad Men commentaries wider exposure, I have invited jms to post on AUFS. Her post from yesterday, which is excellent and thought-provoking, can be found here. This arrangement will persist until the end of the season.
I confess that yesterday I started a new blog, entitled The Last Acceptable Prejudice. It will try to keep track of which group holds that status. I’m hoping for a book deal by the end of next week.
