Welcome Nurgul!

If you saw a strange person on CouchCam this morning, that was our new cleaner Nurgul! She’s Mongolian. (Why does “Nurgul” remind me of Garfield? Wasn’t the cute kitten named that?) I’m excited to see what she did. I was there for the first bit, showing her around and doing last minute tidying. (Yeah, we cleaned for the cleaner. But mostly it was just piling up the important stuff so she knew what she could safely chuck.) It’s really weird leaving a stranger in your house. I was also having middle class guilt over paying an immigrant to clean my house, til I remembered that she’s getting the same per hour rate I am. *sigh* I’m in the wrong business.

  1. The cute kitten was “Nermal.”

    Excuse me while I go whip myself for knowing that right off the top of my head.

  2. Eh, I knew that, too, and it’s not like I’ve ever been a huge Garfield fan (not that there’s anything wrong with that!).

  3. I *knew* it was something like that!

  4. Since I moved in with Dave I know *exactly* what you mean. Celina is our nice hispanic cleaning lady and our conversations in spanglish are pretty entertaining.

    And don’t worry, we clean like mad before the cleaning, too. I try and think of it like rinsing the dishes before you put them in the washer. Or at least letting the dog lick them clean.

  5. Well you left me alone in the house when I stayed and you what damage an overgrown ferret can do.

  6. I’d be careful letting a Mongol into your house. Ghengis Khan apparently had a thing for throwing cats onto bonfires and severing people’s heads. Mind you – you let this dirty Kenyan into your place, so I suppose a blood thirsty warrior from the steppes seems pretty civilised in comparison.
