Cleanliness is next to Bill Gates-liness

It's that time of year again.

That is, time to take apart the computer and clean all the grunge out of it. It's not dirty enough to threaten it with the hose, but it's dusty for sure.

I'm also going to upend my keyboard, give it a few thumps, and have enough crumbs avalanche out of it to serve Shake N Bake pork chops for dinner.

Waste not, want not.

It's important for the tech savvy housewife to keep her computer clean inside and out. I think they should market air in a can to Mommy Bloggers much like packages of douche. Put a contented and refreshed woman in a white shirt standing casually in the sunshine on the front of the can with a slash that proclaims it's "Guava Scented". It'll sell.

As God is my witness, I'll never blow a power supply again!

Time to clean out programming and files too. Those are full of spicy little crumbs.

Those pictures of me wearing the Halloween themed saran wrap and the witchy hat? Gone.

Those pictures of my husband wearing the Halloween themed saran wrap and the witchy hat? Keepers...wait...Gone...no, keep...nah, they go.

I'm getting rid of this photo too:


My WAV file collection of belches has outlived it's usefulness. It seems a well timed pre-recorded belch is so last year.

Does anyone play Duke Nukem anymore?

Seems you can't get rid of all the free AOL trial software installed at the factory and hidden all over this comp. No, I don't gots mail. I don't wants your mail. I don't wants your evil Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan conspiracies.

Windows 98. Sigh, I loved ye. I'll set you free and if it's meant to be you'll come back.

If all goes smoothly, I'll have time to take new photos to fill up my dust free spaces. I have Christmas themed saran and a santa hat, uh huh.

  1. Is that a super snake outfit?

    I read that one can put their keyboard in a dishwasher but I havent tried that, and likely wont.

    Have fun cleaning. It goes with the job description "house wife." ;)

    With your absent mind though, dont forget where u hide the nakies cuz u might delete those too!
