The Week That Was…

I have a new dishwasher! Break out the bubbly! It’s been since the end of July and that is really WAY TOO LONG to have to wait for a shop to get what you ordered and paid for in, but the service in Harvey Norman out here is a whole other story and it’s got nothing to do with Covid.

Joke of the week:

It feels like a two joke week, so here’s another that put me in mind of my dog:

Fans of the 80s movie roll on up! This is a revamped version for our modern, digital age with a specific focus on teen suicide, school shootings and school bombings, and a whole host of other issues woven into a dark, comic, yet entirely on point shock fest. I loved this show so much, as nasty as it is, it hits all the right points with force. I read online that it was dumped on the internet because no network in America would touch it. America is particularly good at gagging its artists when they apply a critical gaze to its society. This show is a case in point. You can find it on Stan if you’re keen. If you’ve already seen it, what did you think?

  1. Oh that is good news… ours was out of action for a week and it felt like purgatory. And there’s only two of us!
    Mind you, The Spouse has been known to use *a lot* of saucepans when he’s cooking… people think I’m “so lucky” that he cooks, but I reckon he’s the lucky one because he doesn’t clean the kitchen afterwards.
    When we were negotiating a future life together we struck a deal: he would cook, shop and pay for the cleaning lady. I would tidy up. Even so, I do more than he does…

    • It really is a relief to have one again. Eldest son installed it on Wednesday night and I’ve felt lighter since. I’ve got so many other things going on at present that having to hand wash dishes had mythologised into something more than it should have, but that’s where my head is at present.
      I love your labour division deal! Although I guess it’s unsurprising that you do bear more of the household weight. It seems an imbalance that exists in even the most egalitarian households.

  2. Yay for the dishwasher! When we did the kitchen reno my husband didn’t use the dishwasher for about a year but I think he’s got the hang of it now. Luckily he used to do the washing up so his business how he did it!

  3. Gahhhh, I *so* want to check out your review of The Lying Life Of Adults, but I’m forcing myself to wait until I’ve read it for myself – trying to go in as blank a slate as possible, haven’t even read a blurb! And YAY for the dishwasher!

    • The blurb is pretty evasive anyway, it doesn’t give much away except for the character name and that it’s set in Naples! I think you’ll love it and I’ll be keen to know your thoughts once you’ve read it.
      So much YAY for the dishwasher, let me tell you!
      I’m currently reading Black Rabbit by Angus Gaunt. Is he from Sapphos, one and the same as you? The email asking for the review came from Sapphos!

      • He certainly is, he’s my boss! πŸ˜… So clearly any comment I make re: Black Rabbit is a conflict of interest… but YAY! I’m so excited you’re reading it! It’s so wonderful to see his real life book out in the real world 😍
