Clean Much?

August 9, 2006  |  Trip 2006

One of the best mornings to wake up in, well not best, the reason it was the best is simply because I woke up later than usual and kind of slept a nice 8 hours or more. Let’s see I went to bed at 1-ish and I woke up at 10am, yeah that was great. Problem is, but keep this on the low down although I know Pops will read this, is that he snores badly and so I have to listen to my iPod in order to sleep :P But I still LOVE YOU DADDY :* Hehehehe

So yeah, woke up today, and headed out to Fee’s new apartment, we still have a few days left on this one, and so we’re taking our time moving out and such. Today was simply cleaning day and setting up the Cable Modem for me. I can honestly say that I have put in a good day’s worth of work. I really cleaned nicely and all that, we had the Clorox spray thingy to spray the furniture that came with the apartment, and the other Clorox thingy to disinfect everything basically. We also had the vaccum cleaner to vaccuum the entire place, although they said that they shampooed the rug, I swear I never saw a filthier rug in my entire life. Oh yeah and to top it all off there were SPIDER WEBS all around the place. In easy to reach places, I mean seriously doesn’t anybody clean anymore?

So after setting up the stuff and all that we got to cleaning and making the place sparkling clean, of course we couldn’t complete it and well actually we did finish the cleaning, however we made sure the dimwits got up there to shampoo the rug, apparently they ‘don’t move the furniture’ to clean underneath it. I mean beneath the couch seats alone we found pieces of pop corn and crap. And under the couch itself we found lots more junk. Behind the fridge, WHICH THEY SAID WAS PULLED OUT TO BE CLEANED BEHIND was FILLED WITH CRAP! So imagine all of that. So now that I mentioned all that, we stayed there from around Noon to 4:30pm and that was alot of time to stay there.

We missed out on lunch and breakfast really so we headed out for an late lunch/early dinner. We went to Outback Steakhouse. I don’t know what the hype is about that place, it’s not really that great or perhaps I didn’t choose right. But I still prefer Gaucho Grill in Kuwait over this. According to Fee though this isn’t the best place for steak, but instead Sophia’s is the best. Anywho, as I was eating the house salad, I kinda asked for Thousand Island dressing and when it came mixed into the salad, it brought back memories which I shared with Pops and Fee.

You see, back in the last 90’s, back when I was in 6th grade, my school had the best best best food canteen area or whatever lunch area. We had and I still remember this okay, we had a small shop which sold Fa6ayer called BrBr, Sultan Center, and Pizza Hut. I remembered specifically the days in which I treated myself to a nice healthy lunch, I used to grab me to Cheese Fa6ayer and a Green Salad from Sultan Center with Thousand Island Dressing and I used to mix it in and eat a bite from my Fa6ayer and grab a forkful of my Green Salad. God those were the days, I still remember how I used to sit in the courtyard and eat all that hehe :P I had high metabolism back then, didn’t gain even half a pound, instead if I ate too much I would lose weight hehe, talk about backwards Jacqui. But anywho, I was sharing the tales of my childhood with Pops and sis hehe and it was nice.

But to cut this short, I didn’t like the steak much, they used alot of pepper on it for seasoning and I am picky about the amount of pepper, I am also picky about the fact that it wasn’t as juicy as the steak I had in Kuwait or even the Steak Burger I had in NY.

Afterwards we hit Target again to buy a Raised Airbed for the extra room that Fee had, since they don’t supply single renters with two beds, just so that we can sleep on it and we were browsing through the stuff that were there as well. After that we hit Best Buy to check out the stuff there. Pops recently bought a customized HP Laptop. We ordered it this morning, it’s cool it’s got all the top of the line specifications for a great price, less than 2000$ and that’s great really. I’m hoping to get my Macbook sometime next week, I am thinking of getting the White 2.0ghz one with 512MB RAM (since I am going to be purchasing 2GB so why bother upgrading the ram when they’ll hit me with 2 512s or 2 256s), and I might bump up the hard drive to 100 or 120gb, I adore space and that way I can actually have my music library on both my desktop and Macbook.

So yeah, I know I must’ve ranted alot but it’s cool, I miss Grandma’s cooking, especially the ‘kousa & malfoof’ I forgot the english word for them but oh well.

I miss my sisters and mother, my girlies, and my twirlies, and my Jack bear :*
