Iron your own damn shirt indeed!

(Is damn allowed in G-rated??)

Kathleen Maher

I don't take those quizzes after getting some very ugly results. One in particular asked:
Do you want to die alone (a)
Or surrounded by friends and family (b)

All I could think was that I didn't want to take out my friends and family with me. I'd rather die alone. People who want to die alone are the most despicable people in the world. My self-esteem is less than zero already.

Ironing? Who irons stuff anymore?

Ironing? Who irons stuff anymore?

Not me. I think un-ironed, all cotton shirts are more comfortable. It's bad enough that I haz to wear a tie 4 days a week, in this day and age.

I iron something almost every day. And not because someone makes me! I just love the way it magically unwrinkles stuff.

I have been ironing my own shirts since I was 16. I pissed my mom off one day while she was ironing a dress shirt for me, and she said, "Iron you're own shirts" (no damn involved), and that was that.

I don't iron very often, but nothing beats the look of a freshly pressed shirt.

I am sending my shirts, BG.

Ok, let's get serious here. Do you people know how to fold laundry correctly? I am a Master Folder.

Dan Leo

About thirty years ago I was reading J.P. Donleavy's novel "A Fairy Tale of New York" (whence Shane MacGowan got his song title), and the hero replies to a woman who remarks on his un-ironed shirt: "The wrinkled look is de rigueur." This has been my sartorial motto ever since.

Ok, I'm gonna admit something here. Ready? I can't go out of the house without ironing whatever I'm wearing. I *have* to iron it. It's a *thing*. If I don't iron whatever I'm wearing for the day, I can't deal with it. My whole day's ruined. lol

Seriously.

Seriously.

It may be time for an intervention.

Jennifer

BG- We're all coming to your house and we're going to take away your iron... it will be hard at first, but you can do it!

blue girl

Can't I just take it one step at a time? Like, instead of setting it on 6 for cotton when I'm ironing a cotton shirt, set it on 4 for cotton blends, then the next day set it at 2 for nylon? I can't go cold turkey!

I would miss the steam...

Jennifer

I can't go cold turkey!

Good point... I do like to iron my turkey so it's nice and hot.

zombie rotten mcdonald

this thread is full of irony.

HAH!

blue girl

And everyone wants irony to be dead!

I can't go out of the house without ironing whatever I'm wearing.

How do you keep from burning yourself?

blue girl

Ha! I was expecting ZRM to get me on that one.

blue girl

I would like to thank Jennifer for providing me my post for the week. lol Obviously, ironing is about all I've got to talk about right now...

Sadness. Total sadness. lol

zombie rotten mcdonald

Jennifer has been driving up and down Idea Alley...

zombie rotten mcdonald

Ha! I was expecting ZRM to get me on that one.

Zombies rarely do what is expected.

Jennifer

I would like to recommend Jeremy Irons for to play the part of BG (in drag, of course) should this ever be made into a film...

BG probably should have lived during the Iron Age... Bwaahahaahaa!

Don't knock Idea Alley, ZRM!!! It's sacrosanct! :)

zombie rotten mcdonald

the soundtrack would have to be Heavy Metal....

blue girl

Iron Maiden? See how quick I am?

Jennifer

She's quick!

Jennifer

BG would probably be blogging more if she weren't dealing with other more pressing issues...

zombie rotten mcdonald

ouch.

Flattened by that one, I was.

Jennifer

Darn! I was looking for an old commercial, but YouTube doesn't have it.

BG or ZRM... you guys are old enough, do you remember the "Press-O-Matic"??

I can hear the voice over, a woman with a slow Southern accent.

"Turn ironing drudgery into pressing pleasure!"

But it sounded more like "praysing playzure". :)

Jennifer

Did my pressomatic comment disappear?? :(

Jennifer

Oh... it was stuck in the tubes with a zombie.

Jennifer

BG's favorite golf club is probably an iron.

zombie rotten mcdonald

No fair.
Jennifer has OBVIOUSLY been driving up and down Idea Alley all day!

Jennifer

ZRM- I think it's obvious that BG's book would NOT be "A Wrinkle in Time"...

Maybe her's should be, "Much Ado About Wrinkles".

Jennifer

And I CAN'T believe I put an apostrophe in hers...

That was for you ZRM...

Jennifer

BG's favorite old show?? Ironsides...

Jennifer

Her favorite baseball player?

Lou Gehrig... the Iron Horse. :)

Jennifer is on a roll, with cream cheese...

zombie rotten mcdonald

... and a mayonnaise droplet.

blue girl

Cream cheese and mayo are both rich in iron.

True story.

Jennifer

But BG would never eat them with raisins... they're too wrinkly.

Jennifer

... and a mayonnaise droplet.

I think those were on Kiwi's orchid.

yaya

It is amazing how 2 can be so much alike yet so different....I haven't ironed anything since last May and you get this site and I don't....by the end of the posts, I ALWAYS am like, "what?"

blue girl

yaya, don't worry. Next time you don't get what's going on here, just ask Pinko Punko for help. He'll be happy to explain it all!
