Laundry Clerks.

I'm cautiously excited about Clerks II (aka The Passion of the Clerks). The first one is such a classic, I'm so afraid that the second one is going to be too... Hollywoody. I mean, they've got Rosario Dawson (from Josie and the Pussycats and RENT)in there and her billing is only topped by Dante and Randal.
Part of the genius in the original Clerks came from the no-name actors. They got more commercial with Mallrats (and then Chasing Amy, and etc etc etc), and that was fine, but I'm so worried my original view of one of the best movies ever is going to be skewed by the hollywoodization of its sequel.

Randal and Dante are back, albeit a bit heftier. In the original original Clerks, Dante actually gets killed in the end, so I guess we're all just going to pretend that didn't happen.
Confession time. Some women fantasize about pretty men like Brad Pitt (ugh) or Colin Farrell (retch); I claim Jeff "Randal" Anderson as my daydream guy. He's so fricking cute! Even 10 years later. *girly sigh*
I'm going to cry if he ends up with Rosario this go 'round.

Jason Lee makes an appearance, as does Ben Affleck. They aren't credited in the cast, but check out the teaser and you'll catch them in a few frames.
Who is the blond chick with Dante? What happened to Veronica?
So many questions.

• no segue exists for this change of topic •

So yesterday I heard someone talking about doing laundry in a way that implied they were somewhat anal retentive. What was alarming was that her description was much LESS involved than the way I do my laundry pretty much every day.
Please tell me... is this not normal?
I separate whites and colors.
Whites are then separated into Whites Bleach and Whites No Bleach (certain fabrics, or t-shirts with printing).
Colors are separated into Darks, Mediums, Lights, and Brights.
If I have room for a whole load of them, I will also wash all Reds together, or do a whole load of nothing but Denim. Sometimes I have a load of just Khaki too.
Doesn't everyone do it this way?

Everyone does not do it that way.

I throw everything that's green or of a camouflage variety in together. On cold. My black boot socks go in there too. Sometimes (ok. Usually.) my white socks which I wear under my black boot socks get in there too.

It's a lucky day if my whites actually get to be separated from my darks. We are not into segregation in this family. The whites and the coloreds all go in the same washer here. At the same time. They all get washed in cold water. They get dried all together too and they usually sit for days in a basket together as I paw through them looking for two sets of my underwear to wear every day (one for in the morning to PT in and one for when I shower and change over into cammies)and tiny little tube socks for Donovan. Oh! The fun is ENDLESS around here! LOL!

Jenna...what military base are you at? We are at Fort Knox, KY. mom sorts clothes the way you do. Actually, I do sort my whites from colors. My socks are their own pile since they get bleached (I usually throw dish rags in with the socks so they can get bleached too). Then I have a pile of denim. If I have enough, I'll have a khaki pile, but normally that gets thrown into colors. But there have been quite a few times that I've had a khaki pile all by themselves. Then my colors just get tossed into one pile although I normally have 2-3 loads of colors to wash. Paul's military clothes gets a pile all by themselves unless there isn't enough then they'll go in with the colors. But more than likely, I'll have a military pile as well.

Nope not done that way here either. I have my whites, my colors and my jeans. Just 3 loads is all I do and it is usually all done in cold to luke warm water.

Usually we do it about like you do. Just depending on how much there is. If there's not a lot of colors, we might put them all in one.

LOL! I separate into whites, darks (mostly jeans and Sailor's uniforms), towels and sheets (those are also separated by color), and then the rest is usually washed on the delicate cycle (my undies and shirts and Princess's clothes).

What font do you use? I always thought it was a plain font and then I checked your site from someone else's computer and I saw your font. Anyway, what's the name of it so I can know what to grab from her computer?! Thanks!!

it's just boring old Verdana. i am not a big fan of fancy fonts that require downloading to view properly.

you don't have verdana on your system? you should definitely get it. it's one of the most often used fonts on the web.

Yipes, would take me all day to do laundry that way, lol! I separate the kids' laundry into 2 piles: Whites & Darks. I do mine and Tonebone's laundry separately; his is separated into Jeans, Darks, & Whites; mine is separated the same way. I don't know why the heck I have to do our laundry separately...I guess I'm a little anal!

I do have Verdana. I thought I had seen a different font on your site. Maybe it was someone else's blog. Thanks though!!
