Let us know if you want to come stay in the basement for a few days.... we have a dishwasher... that dishwashing can wear on you after a few years... not that I'd know. You could always tell when I was single if I'd invited a lady over, because the dishes were done, the floor was vacuumed and the sheets were changed... and the clothes I wore didn't look like they belonged in the Sally Ann rag pile waiting to become paper. Some might claim that was false advertising, but I don't think it ever fooled anyone. because the things I would have done if those things had been done already would have been done, and I never even found out what those things were.

Actually, I don't mind washing. It really isn't any more work than rinsing the dishes and loading the dishwasher. Actually, we did have a dishwasher many years ago in the last apartment we lived in. I think in the 2 years we were there we used it twice.

Funny what motivates us, isn't it?
When I met my wife my refrigerator had a jug of iced tea, a jar of Miracle Whip, and a 250 foot roll of Plus-X. I think there was a loaf of bread in the cupboard.

We have had a dishwasher for over 20 years now. I carefully wash all the dishes and put them in the dishwasher and wash them again. Ours is really more of a sterilizer, not a washer.

If I forget to use the right soap it is a dish spotter.

and then I become a dish polisher

And just for clarification, who's idea was this? it strikes me that a "Y" chromosome would never have thought this necessary.

So you were getting by on Miracle Whip sandwiches?

Only when I ran out of bologna, but McDonald's was just down the street.

I had half a case of Kraft Macaroni and Cheese dinner, couple pounds of margarine and a partially-consumed gallon jug of milk. I think there was a carton of Marlboros in my desk drawer and a case of Budweiser under the bed (hidden from the 'drop-in' losers from the next apartment down the hall).

Hope you drank the Bud, tossed the smokes and the margarine and later bought a New York strip sirloin to grille. I remember hiding good stuff from losers as well. Occasionally I would not find my cache until months later. Youth is testing the limits of both memory and stamina.

Used the milk and margarine for the Mac and Cheese, drank the beer, smoked the fags and used the empty milk jug to drag around a mixture of 50% grain alcohol / 50% Hi-C grape drink on a clothesline tied to a belt loop the next weekend.

I was reminded of the grain punch last spring by another guy who went to the party. We called the milk jug Mort. (Pass me Mort, will 'ya?). I met my wife at that party.

She was not impressed.

Guess I cleaned up my act just enough.

We made that fine elixir at my alma mater, Univ. of Western Ontario; colours, purple and white. We felt it was fitting. For pre-game warm-ups, it was served in an toilet bowl. The left-overs were smuggled into the stadium in Mickey bottles in the bells on our Sousaphones (I was in the marching band). I have a very clear recollection of almost all of the first-halves of every game though I'm sure they must have played the second-halves.

I'm not sure anyone was impressed except our little group. Certainly the campus police weren't.

I`we always wondered if campus police like doughnuts as much as "real" cops do?
Could a super-giant doughnut, jammed down the throat of Godzilla, suffocate the beast and therefore save Tokyo?

BTW.
Just buying the flour and the yeast would kill any hociR budget.
