Friday Five:

1. How often do you do laundry?
Whenever A) the pile in the bedroom threatens to smother us, or B) whenever I have nothing to wear, whichever comes first.

2. What’s in a typical wash load?
Mostly just clothes. If it’s me, jeans and T-shirts. If it’s the Snook, work shirts and pants.

3. Front or top loader? Powder or liquid detergent?
Top loader. Powder detergent. The brand of detergent is a tricky issue, because Snookums won the State Science Fair when he was, like, eight, with a project on the effectiveness of various laundry detergents. So I have to get one of the good ones.

4. Do you use fabric softener in the rinse cycle?
Are you kidding? Once I close the lid that load is FINISHED as far as I’m concerned. You’re lucky if I remember to take the clothes out at all, let alone put fabric softener in.

5. Dryer or clothesline?
Dryer. We thought we might dry some stuff on our balcony, but the traffic from the nearby road generates a little too much dirtiness.
