for someone who is so fastidious about dress

... i'm rather messy about about keeping my spaces neat and tidy. i would like to say that i'm only messy, not dirty, not leaving used plates on tabletops or in the sink for days on end... but that wouldn't be true.
i recently had over a friend who had never been to my apartment before.
"why is there a robot lying on the floor?"
"oh that's not a robot", i told him. "that's a fan... that broke... and fell over. sometime between thanksgiving and christmas. i just haven't gotten around to picking it up and throwing it away."
i think that's one of the reasons that i don't like christmas decorations. if i had put them up, they would still be up by march.

we were so messy together at 72 gardener. like piles and piles of crusty, dried macaroni and cheese bowls. did everyone hate us? eh, probably.
