Weekend Links (Cleaning For a Party Edition)

Written by

This weekend my wife and I did a lot of cleaning in preparation for having The Digerati Life and Stop Buying Crap over for a game of Settlers of Catan. I think we spent 8 hours each day in preparation. I would like to say we split the work 50-50, but my wife probably did more than me. Instead of the usual 90-10 split though, it was probably closer to 60-40, so I'm getting a little better. Plus, I kind of think my wife likes to clean. It sounds crazy, but I actually have been searching online for bleach-smelling cologne - if they make such a thing.

You see when it comes to having people over my wife is like Marshall and Lily from How I Met Your Mother. If you don't watch the show (you should be), after an over the top entertaining party the main characters created a video and a website about it.

Here's the making of the video. It's not the one from the show (as I couldn't find it), but imagine a montage of pictures of the website above:

Poor Silicon Valley Blogger and Cap don't know what they are going to be walking into.

Later on today, I hope to post the details of my wife's homemade frugal hummus recipe. It will save you bundle if you plan to use it to attack your mayor.

For now, let's get to the links:

  1. I was going to be really jealous of you playing Settlers, and sad that I moved to San Diego!

    But before I got a chance to post that comment, I went outside and took a look at the sunset…and suddenly I wasn’t jealous any more. ;)

    Enjoy Settlers! :)

    Well, I’m sure you’ll be in the area to visit at some point. We can include you then.

    Awesome sunset, the dragon in the clouds is beautiful. I still prefer Settlers given that the weather here isn’t that bad.

    I don’t remember you cleaning that well when I came over to play settlers back east…

    Furthermore, I don’t remember you ever cleaning when I lived with you…

    Whats going on here? What has CA done to you?

    I got married. After that there was extensive cleaning of all public areas. Well extensive by most people’s standards.

  5. What! Oh my! This is gonna be interesting fun… I can’t wait to see you guys tonight! Eh, you mean when I have you guys over, we have it tame? ;)

    Can’t wait to meet your kid Jack as well and see you back in your element… if you know what I mean ;) .

  6. Hummus! Are you serving hummus! I love that stuff!

  7. Okay that was so much fun! I love these mid-week get togethers. Next week again, ‘kay? :) Thanks for the awesome bbq-ed steaks and chicken and baked beans and hummus and cheese pastries, and enjoyed Mrs. Lazy’s dance recital videos. And the friendly dog. :)
