The Laundromat

January 23, 2008

Journal, Lauren

American Idol’s back on, so that means I’m useless for 10 – 15 minute stretches, then I try to be super-efficient during the commercials. This post is going to take forever to make.

On Sunday one of the jobs was to wash the mattress pad that used to be new and wonderfully fluffy, but now has developed two Lloyd-and-Lauren shaped dents, rendering it worthless. I had tried just running it through our dryer a couple of weeks ago, but all that did was spin it around and shrink it a little. Nope, this time I washed it at home, then we took it to the laundromat with it’s ginormous dryers to restore it’s glory.

I love laundromats. Seeing all the multiple washers and dryers – it’s like I’m rich!!!

rows of washing delight

I’m sure I’d love them a lot less if I had to use one on a regular basis, but the novelty is fantastic. I saw a new gadget I’d never seen before – the hanger dispenser!
I'll never lack for hangers again!

    Jeepers! 50 cents for a wire hanger! It only costs 99 cents to have somebody wash and iron Leo’s shirts and it comes with a free hanger…

    Did you “View Here”? What did you see? What did you see? Was it a magical land where the hangers all smile and dance?

    My feather comforter was just not keeping me warm this year. Then Macy threw up on it and I took it to the cleaners. They fluffed it all up for me and now I couldn’t be any more comfortably warm. If it weren’t for Macy’s unfortunate event, I would still be shivering.

    The tan dryers, (south end if you are standing in Seward), give you more drying time for a quarter than the gold ones do. Gives you more money to spend on hangers.
