I have just discovered the most ridiculous way to procrastinate on cleaning my room.

(Mind, I've been procrastinating on cleaning my room - the defiance itself, rather than this occurrence of it - for a good long time. Ask my mother. Ever since the first "clean your room or you can't see your friend!" I have found ways to procrastinate on it.)

Previously I ranked reading as the best way to avoid it and making YouTube videos as the most entertaining.

Now Pirate (housemate) has introduced me to a new technique: cock-fighting.

It does not involve male chickens. It involves a kit Pirate bought including two belts and two (large) sets of male anatomy with Velcro. A player snaps into the belt and applies the inflatable c-and-b (uh, cricket bat and balls, clearly). The opponents then attempt to dislodge the other party's penis first through an entertaining dance of hip-thrusts, sways and dodges. Battle to three.

Pirate beat me the first time; I beat him the second.

I wasn't expecting this, exactly, when I decided that I would have a gender-bender weekend. But it's been great for procrastination! :D

Current Mood: dorkyDorky.

Hasn't managed to really clean her room for years. Its a sad state of affairs. I hope you overcome your procrastination and find the joy in a clean room ; ). It will also make packing and giving stuff away easier.

Lies! Slander and lies! This post pledges my procrastination over the matter - not that I can't eventually get it done! You yourself have seen my room after a random cleaning spree. And, when dissertations and exams aren't under foot to keep me walking on hot coals, I like to keep my room clean - a few minutes every day! It's just getting back to that state of clean that I find difficult, the initial push...

Plus, Mumstermeister, you haven't managed to clean your room much more often than I have! (Yes, yes, you have other rooms to clean and things to do with life...but I know how much telly you watch and how it only takes a good few hours at a time to make a real dent! I'm not daft, for all that I put those hours off. :B)

Perhaps we can tackle your room together when I'm home and settled. Strange that I can unpack a little more than I have in previous journeys home. Enough to relax at home for a time before I figure out if moving to Providence would work.

Floor visible now! Going to do a first-stage hoovering in a bit, then onto surfaces and organising/putting everything away and a second-stage hoovering. Organisation tends to take me the longest...everything needs a place!

I believe this is my way of saying pot, kettle, pot-kettle-black!

Cleaning is a bad word, right?

Seriously, that is epic and amusing and crazy and the very random parts of me want to try it.

Cleaning is absolutely a bad word. Even when I'm successful at it, I like to call it 'tidying'. I am tidying the mess that accrues through living; I am not cleaning.

It's well worth a try! Absolutely hilarious.

I also suggested that we draw a man on a big pad of paper and put it on a wall, put up the belt and play 'put the penis on the prick'. (The man has to be rather mean-looking.) I think I would roll on the floor laughing.

(That is, I would if the living room floor didn't need tidying...)

(I need to clean/tidy/bulldoze/whatever my room, but it is always too bloody hot)

That sounds like an epic, drunken party game of the best kind. :)

I got nothing here, though I don't wonder at the current mood.

This is exactly why I love reading your posts! They're always full of awesome! Cock-fighting! LOL! :D

Awwwr! *Big dorky grin.* I'm glad you like my posts and think they're full of awesome. :D I will try to keep them that way...although I fear that for the next few weeks they probably won't be, since my friends are all headed away!

Cock-fighting is an absolute riot.
