lol, my house is hard to keep clean because it's prone to lint bunnies, but I do what I can, lol

as far as debris go, I have trash cans all about, so that's not a big issue...now the bills and related papers on my desk?? wellllllll........lol #-o :nut kick:

oh yeah, and I also have nothing but hardwood floors without any finish on them (it wore off long ago, lol), so sweeping only serves to stir the lint and dust......I think I'll invest in one of those hard-floor sweepers or vacuums :rolleyes:

you own your place? sounds like a dumb question, but I know in most apts over here in the states, you can't just go and pull up carpet or modify stuff like that, lol

I plan on finishing my floors and laying down new linoleum where there's the busted up stuff, and need to fix the ceiling, which is cracked and falling due to jacking up the ceiling where I made previous structural repairs.......a "starter" home for sure, roflmao :lol:

That RADIATOR is fully funtioning, cooling this pc as we speak LOL
( It just won't fit in the new case )

Well I wanted to "gone to Mars"....
But just like NASA....and I got my calculations wrong.......
I'll cleanup tomorrow.....It's Sunday and a day of rest (plus I'm very badly hung-over!)

haha, I've been there before.....hell, there was once I didn't go to sleep for like 3 days, was on a drinking binge and some other stuff I don't do anymore.......never again, so I'm not such a good role model either, though I did quit the hard liquor after New Years (ok, except Jagermeister, I'll have my bottle of Jager and 8 Red Bulls every once in a blue moon, lol)

I plan on doing the red wine thing......a glass a day is supposed to be good for you, and considering I'm going green with my diet (veggies, veggies, and more veggies), it might not be too bad an idea (red wine has a good deal of flavonoids designed to prevent cancer and other diseases).

I need to lose around 80-90 lbs or so, might as well get started, lol :P

Yeah a glass of red wine a day is supposed to be good for you.....has antioxidants....good for your liver and suppsedly protects against Cancer.

Just do what I do....Smoke!! -> great for dieting LOL

I'm just the worst role model ever........... :finga:

well, I would, except my lungs are "on notice"........I used to smoke (more than just cigarettes.....marijuana was a favorite of mine in the past too), but years of being around secondhand smoke as a kid, coupled with my own smoking, has caused me respiratory problems, and the weight is amplifying it, so I'm hoping to extend my life by losing the weight and being able to breathe easier......I gotta lose weight the hard way, lol
