that's all i'm going to say. still way off schedule for the house cleaning, but i started the fast last night. my sister was grossed out by the juice i made. it didn't taste bad or anything. she just doesn't like green food. and it was definitely green. i juiced some kale, a carrot, a zucchini, a yellow squash and a radish. i should have left the radish out. i had no idea it would be gone again in two hours. definitely an interesting experience. i brought two 16oz bottles of apple juice and one bottle of grape pear. i also brought my 64oz water bottle with me (finally). it has been sitting on the dining room table for months. i used to bring it with me all the time when i first started this job back in late august. i've been slack. water is good for you. i'm going to need it a lot when i start riding my bike more (once the weather warms back up enough for me to go outside without shivering.

my bathroom sink is now sparkling. now i just have to scrub the rest of the bathroom. i'm not sure what to do about the toilet, however. a cat i once had (had to put her to sleep several months ago) threw up all over the toilet when she was still around. i got most of it up, but it was hard to get in the little crack between the base and the tank. i tried to get some sort of scrubby thing in there, but it's just not thick enough for me to get decent enough pressure to scrape that stuff up. maybe my exfiance's toothbrush can fit in there, but the bristles aren't all that tough. do you guys know of a cleaning substance that eats stuff like that? some sort of neat trick to make it so i just have to wipe gently with a scrub sponge to get that gunk out?

and my next project is to attack the dining room. this is because i've done about as much as i can on my room before guests arrive. hey, i got half of my closet cleaned out! that's an accomplishment! it used to come up to my neck. now it's mostly below waist high. that's a lot of boxes! managed to clean out about 10, i think. and i got about half of the boxes out of the other closet a while back. now it's time to get all of that crap in the living room and dining room dealt with. i should be able to do that before people come over sunday. are you coming, blazing_jezebel? i'm thinking of having people come between 4 and 5. we can hang out some before i start the movie. i figure 6 is a good time to start it. that way it won't be too terribly late when it's over, but close enough to sundown to have popcorn! and if you'd like to bring something, that would be cool. i'm going to be making wheat bread and i'll probably have a veggie tray. i may try to make something out of the pulp i'm saving. i have some orange pineapple pulp i can make into sorbet. i have some veggie pulp that i can probably turn into something. maybe i can make a soup or something. after not having solid foods for 3 days, we're going to want to take it easy. of course, not everyone who will be there will have done that, so i want to have stuff that's appealing to everyone. i'm sure i can wing it. i just wasn't expecting to have this much month at the end of the money. fortunately, i get paid this weekend. any suggestions?
