Where's Barbara Eden When You Need Her?

When I was a kid I'd flick on the TV as soon as I got home.  Gilligan's Island, The Monkeys, The Brady Bunch, and I Dream of Jeannie provided me with endless hours of entertainment.  I didn't care if I had already seen the same episode a million times already because it was just as good as the first time.

I thought Jeannie was the coolest - she totally rocked out her harem outfit, she had super-fine digs (I'd totally live in a bottle if it was decked out like hers), and she could do magic!  The one thing I didn't understand about her was her choice in men.  Granted, we've all made questionable choices when it comes to dating, and Major Nelson did rescue her but seriously, he was extra douchie!!!

But I digress...

Oh what I would give to have Jeannie's magic powers right now!  Work and school have been keeping me occupied so I haven't been as diligent about picking up after myself.  Okay, let's be honest, I HATE housework!!!  Did I mention that I HATE housework?  I simply cannot overstate this fact. 

I've tried crossing my arms and blinking but it still doesn't make this place any tidier.  Every time I go out I make a wish that cleaning fairies will come by while I'm gone and make my home all sparkly-bright and lemony-fresh.  The reality is that every time I come home I let out a little shriek because my place looks the same as when I left (and not in a good way).

I do have a cleaning lady but having her come by right now would be just cruel.  Fingers crossed that I'll be able to pick up the bigger chunks this weekend so that I'll be able to have her come by in the next week or two.  In the meantime, please cross your arms and blink for me.


  1. I would rather be Samantha from Bewitched. She was less of a slave for her man, well at least she didn't have to call him Master. Course Darren was no peach either, what with restricting her from using her awesome powers. Perhaps being Endora was the way to go. She would torment Darren whenever he acted Douchey and was still invited back all the time. Course I also liked Jeannie's evil sister with the brown hair...

  2. I think you're right about Endora, but I'll take Major Nelson over Darren any day - the guy creeps me out!

  3. Which version of Darren original recipe or Darren 2.0?
