Wife-ish. I feel house wife-ish.

I don't know why, but doing laundry makes me feel like a house wife. Cleaning doesn't do it for me. Watching the kids doesn't do it for me. Cooking dinner doesn't do it for me. Even Oprah and bon bons doesn't do it for me. For some reason the act of putting things through the laundry and then folding them, and occasionally even putting them away, makes me feel like a traditional 1950's housewife, only without the high heels and the lipstick.

Oh, and in the grand tradition of Marc, this one time only, I am giving a star to the person who can identify the television show I miss-quoted in my title.

  2. I. Don't. Know. Is this something I should know? Cause if it is I'll be mad. I'm hoping it's something I never watch. That's it. I'm messaging you.

  4. McCoy: "You ok, Jim? How do you feel?"
    Kirk: "Young. I feel young!"

    Ok, so I'm probably way off, but I think I should at least get a broze star for having got the format right.

    (If I'm right, then I award Becky 10 gold stars for actually knowing that line from Star Trek.)

  5. Just for the record Travis...I wasn't messaging Becky so I could find out what the answer is, come here and post it and get a star. I was just curious as to what the answer was.

  6. LOL. Travvy, I hate to break it to you, but you haven't got a chance of guessing this one. Unless you like kids CBC. (Whoops! Was that a hint?)

    Oh, and here is Glen's prize...

    He gets an ampersand, cause I don't know how to make things bronze on here.

  7. I understand.

    That's one of the more irritating shows. It's not Noah's favourite either. I usually go in the shower when this one comes on.

  8. Are you making an official guess?

  9. Laundry makes me feel house wifey too. That, and when I cook chicken and rice casserole.

  10. Okay, I changed my title to make it more like the show. (Even though I personally agree with Melissa that the show is dumb and incredibly irritating.) Maybe that will help.

  11. I LOVE GLEN'S ANSWER. IF I WERE YOU I WOULD GIVE THE GEEK A BIGGER PRIZE THAN THAT.

    Go wild Trav. You've earned it. And if you feel like being irritated here is a link to the song the quote comes from. Coincidently, I think this song describes me just as well as a house wife-ish song would.

  14. Man... I just went to that link again. I swear they wrote that song about me! Especially the talker part. Uncanny.

  15. OK. I would not have guessed in a million years. My 7 year old doesn't watch shows like this. She likes shows like Raven, Smart Guy, and Hilary Duff. I did check out that link and it is totally annoying. I am so glad I don't have to have that on in my house. Congratulations Trav. I didn't know you still watched shows like that.

  16. For us older folks who no longer have small kids at home, we wouldln't have had a chance. What the heck is "Zaboomafoo?" Sounds like a new strain of some flu virus.

  17. That's what it is. A virus.
