Toilet seat down, cupboard doors open

Semi-personal but not so much verbal jaunt, since no one has missed my blog, anyway:

So I should preface with the fact that I have two roommates: one male, one female. Both are great fun.

One of those extremely common complaints by women of men is that the man/men in their households won't put the toilet seat down. Well, my male roommate is astonishingly good about this. I have only once or twice gone to the toilet to find it in its "Standing" position. I, for one, have been quite pleased with this, and so long as he does his dishes in a relatively timely fashion and gets out of the bathroom in time, in the morning, I'm good.

My female roommate, however, has a different sort of complaint. We have discovered that, despite his excellent care in keeping the toilet seat down for us ladies, he simply *cannot* for the life of him close the cupboard doors in the kitchen. Female roommate is always exclaiming, "It's like the frickin' Sixth Sense, in here!" And it's true. It's not unusual to find three or four cupboards ajar or wide open.

My theory: Putting the toilet seat down and closing cupboard doors are mutually exclusive talents for men (or for this particular man who shares my apartment). Seat down, cupboard open. Amusement for me, frustration for my dear female roommate.

Sorry, that was completely random, but something made me feel like sharing.


Also, completely unrelated, but I really enjoyed the flick The Wedding Date, as it is amusing and rather quotable.
Love the following line: "I would rather fight with you than make love with anyone else."

I'm addicted to this song...

I've been addicted to this cover of Fleet Foxes' song "Tiger Mountain Peasant Song" by a young sister duo from Stockholm! They're called First Aid Kit. Enjoy!
