When Blog-Block Attacks

In lieu of something substantial to blog about today, I give you: the mess that is my house.

Yup - I now love you. And we could never live together cause we'd be those old women on the news who get swallowed by their junk piles.

Loveable Loser said...

1. Tell your husband to clean up his toys.

2. Glad to see a family leaves in your house...family sh*t happens

2. Michael Gurian, a neurobiology consultant, wrote a book " What Could He Be Thinking?", Dr. Gurian argues that men's brains can actually feel invaded and overwhelmed by too much verbal processing of emotion, so that men's need to zone out or do something mechanical rather than emote is often not a rejection of their spouses, but a neural need.

He even posits that the male brain can't “see” dust or laundry piling up as the female brain often can - which explains why men and women tend to perform household tasks in different ways. Men often can't hear women's lower tones, and their brains, unlike women's, have a “rest” state (sometimes, he is thinking about “nothing”).

3. Donald Duck turn 75 and still he is not wearing pants!

And don't worry about what you house looks like first thing in the morning.. what matters is that you have it all clean by the time your hubs gets home. That way it appears as though you've been cleaning all day!

schnaarzy said...

You know my house never looks like that!:)

annewa said...

Hmmm...my kitchen looks JUST like that right now down to the Folex and paper towels next to it on the counter, had to laugh about that. Totally means someone lives in your house!

Kurt said...

You said "Junk Drawer". (*snicker*)

Every morning after the kids leave, my house looks like two drunk polar bears were screwing all over the place. I'm lucky if all the shelving is still in place.

Marla said...

thanks for making the rest of us feel better... blogging ideas... don't have any which is why i blogged about my topsy turvy's again :P

Nic said...

Haha! That's brilliant!
Your dog is adorable, I want him! And I love your kitchen, very cool.
I love vids (as you can probably tell from my blog) and think it's great that you still made a blog post even when you couldn't think of anything to blog about!
If you pay me I'll come over and clean up for you, I could use the extra cash! Hehe :)

Tina said...

Omg! That's hysterical. I have to start packing my house and I would rather come clean your house! :)

OK now you have an auto optimizing blog going...now if you can get an auto cleaning house you could be enjoying the blogs...by the pool...waiting for the pool guy.

obladi oblada said...

Did I see a thermometer in your junk drawer? I hope so, because that is where mine is! LOVE that dog!

Anonymous said...

So my house totally looks like that in the mor...wait, my house looks like that ALL THE TIME. *sigh* I'm a little over my "Suzie Homemaker" insecurities though...it'll get cleaned when it gets cleaned. Whatev.

Ideas to blog about:

-the weeds (I frickin' love that post, so continuing that train would be hilarious...at least to me)

-drinking (duh)

-summer...and drinking

-wtf is up with Jon and Kate? Seriously...you have like 57 kids...you're not getting divorced. Unless Jon wants to pay like $75,000 a month in child support.

Mr Lady said...

Two things:

1. BItch, please. Your house looks like the fucking Cystine Chapel next to mine. You totally win the junk drawer wars, though. That's like a kid tapeworm of doom.

2. Webkinz diarrhea. I think I love you.

3. Your voice makes me homesick in a terrible way.

4. That was 3 things. I'm a rebel like that.

Cathie said...

OMG my house looks like that all the Fing time! I enjoyed your junk drawer. I however draw the line at a dirty fridge! I need to have a clean fridge like I need Robert on me.....oh um yeah....distractions. Write about the pro and cons of cardboard Joe and Rob. I am plum out of ideas for you Sue!

Mare said...

Webkinz Explosion ... That is what my daughter's room looks like at this very moment. And instead of cleaning it she is begging for my laptop so she can get on Webkinz.

Kathy said...

OK, so the video is dated July 2007. What I think we all want to know is whether you've cleaned the house since then.

p.s. I have the exact same rug you have in your office. Love it!

p.p.s. I would kill for your kitchen, mess and everything.

*jimaie.marie* said...

LMAO, the fridge was my VERY favorite part "ohh yeah, that's something I could do today buuuut nope" LOL!
LOVE you. LOVE!

HappyHourSue said...

Kathy- Yeah, i don't know why it says 2007. It's my daughter's camera- I don't know how to change the date. :P

I love that we are rug twins.

M said...

You know, that makes me feel a little better and a little more normal.

I have neat freaks for parents and grandparents and I always feel inadequate.

Thanks :)

Marybeth Poppins said...

OMG! Webkinz Diarrhea. My eight year old and I were cracking up!!! LOVE IT!

Crazy K said...

the same stuffed animal massacre happens at my house just about every day....

lived in is better than sterile :-)

The Mom Jen said...

PERFECT. I'm so happy to know our houses look similar on the inside! Love your 'accent' I think you have a cute one!

Sarah said...

discussion ideas:
-rob pattinson half-naked pics
-new moon production
-booze and/or drinking stories
-rob pattinson's hottness
-how you are going to convince stephenie meyer to finish midnight sun ASAP
-when the heck is angstgoddess003 going to post chapter 50?
-kellan
-rob
-taylor

the end

I Am Boymom said...

Okay...so now I know Happy Hour Sue is normal like the rest of us, except for her hotness and her wickedly sharp sense of humor. But housewise? Yeah. She's just like the rest of us.

I feel a little less worthless today reading all of these comments while I ignore my housework.

The junk drawer was truly inspirational and I hope to achieve that level of junk drawer item integration someday.

Blog Ideas: I'm pretty much tapped. Which is why my blog has been sitting on empty for the last few days. Sorry.

HappyHourSue said...

Mr. Lady & Jen the Mom: i have an accent????

Sarah: All covered on my Twilight blog ;)

Jenni Jiggety said...

Your messy kitchen is SO much nicer than my messy kitchen. And somehow even your Webkinz mess is nicer than mine...

Ivy Tudor said...

I'm a little disappointed in the lack of chardonnay in the fridge. I've totally got you beat on that count or maybe it was under the pile of crap on the middle shelf?

Searching For Reinforcements said...

OK, my husband just came in to watch over my shoulder, since I was laughing so hard. And his comment was "that looks familiar".

So, so, so, so happy I'm not the only one who has the same housekeeping mentality, which, roughly translated, is "I don't care."

LORI said...

COINCIDENTALLY, IN A POLAR OPPOSITE UNIVERSE FAR, FAR AWAY, MY BLOG ENTRY YESTERDAY WAS ABOUT GEARING UP TO GET ORGANIZED! FUNNY? MAYBE. IS IT WRONG THAT I SAW ACTUALLY NOTHING SHOCKING OR WRONG WITH YOUR KITCHEN???! WE'VE ALL HAD THOSE DAYS, I'M A LITTLE AFRAID, THOUGH, BECAUSE MY DAYS HAS GONE ON NOW FOR SEVERAL MONTHS...

Susan in the Psych Ward said...

I swear you could have been in my house! I may have to video mine just so you can see.... but you know, I'm off to the beach next week so when I FINALLY pack the house may be clean!

BacktoBarnwell said...

HAHAHA. Folex is the shit! Was that a glass piece in your drawer? Alright, I'm out. Going to the beach.

Bad Christy said...

Sue, don't even get me into a youtube war, (although that gives me an idea!) at least you're able to see counter/desktop!

Blog ideas:
creative ways to avoid cleaning
list of unidentifiable food substances in fridge
sleuthing out the dysfunction and secrets of neat freaks

okay, lame ideas but that's all I got.

Jen said...

That is so what my house looks like all.the.time!

TentCamper said...

how did you get into my house?

By the way...tell me that was not a tampon on the livingroom floor.

Great video

Anonymous said...

it's like the backwards edition of Cribs on MTV. Those jokers show us how they live with the pimped out everything and massive amounts of beverages in the fridge. You show us how normal people live.

Julie said...

Well, other than an animal massacre in your office your house just looks lived in!

Kirsten said...

I don't have any blogging ideas, but we have the same refrigerator in case you were wondering.

3 Peanuts said...

Oh Sue...thank you so much...you just made me a feel a little better because my house is a disaster right now...maybe even worse than yours....

the Mayor said...

I think we may be dog twins,,, I got the 120 pound big black bear type at my house.He causes a lot mess himself.

ciara said...

it's like mtv cribs u know w showing contents of the fridge, but you forgot to show the room 'where the magic happens'.

McMommy said...

Holy CRAP. I always knew we were BBFF....but now....

WE ARE FAMILY!!!!!!!!

Your mess makes me feel right at home.

Swirl Girl said...

you got the platypus? where did you get the platypus??

my kids would squee for that frickin' platypus!

Anonymous said...

sue - you should see MY JUNK DrawerS... we need to get together soon!!! xo Stacey

Liz said...

SO happy to see that your (gorgeous) house is a wreck like my (less than gorgeous) house! And wow...I love the junk drawer mass cluster of stuff!

Vanessa Rogers said...

Ha ha! I have to say, your mess is impressive, but I dare say, I am one of the worst house keepers ever and I don't have children that make the mess so there are no excuses for me, at least you have some what of an excuse.

Daddy Geek Boy said...

Yeah, that looks kinda familiar. I realized that in fighting the mess, I was constantly losing. I have given up.

Jennifer said...

OK--you win on the junk drawer (just barely) but otherwise my house is about the same!!

Lisa-licious said...

OK, I am commenting late on this post, but I REALLY needed this laugh. I, too, am a fan of Folex and the pickles, and yes, my house and junk drawer look EXACTLY like that on MANY occasions...we have "Rescue Pets" instead of Webkins. They seem to multiply like rabbits. Every time Tom goes to Target, the girls talk him into another one! Oy vey!

That "Hair Accessory" blob would make a nice "dreamcatcher", no?

Mariah said...

Platypus webkins...

Tampons on the floor?

Vlassic Pickles...

Melissa Gilbert has a new book?

The comments on this are cracking me up. Seriously though... My junk drawercan take your junk drawer down. My kitchen is OK... but man you should see my office.
