This is a message to all you men out there. Dishes, pots and pans are difficult to wash. Not only that, scrubbing the pots and using that abrasive dish soap gets your hands rough and dry. So why make your woman do the dishes? Do you want a woman with rough, manly hands? I don't.
Also, pots are heavy. We have cast iron Le Creuset pots. It takes muscles to wash these things (and do a good job). Cowboy up and do some scrubbing! In our home; she cooks. Because I can't. I can make (in no particular order) grits and ramen and cook eggs, but that only gets a man so far. It's only fair that I clean up after her. Oh, and vacuuming and scrubbing toilets and taking out the trash is also a man's job. That's dirty work; and if you're a real man, you won't let your woman do those things. Let her focus on the creative stuff like cooking and buying you clothes (because I have no fashion sense). Hmm, maybe I'm a true male chauvinist, since I've disqualified Ying from doing The Man's Work. Although in this case, I don't think she minds :)
Even though we were far away from the Santiago Canyon fires, the smoke and ash covered our patio. Here I am, getting ready to use our vacuum on our patio furniture. Hook 'em! Ying turned that handkerchief into a face mask for me so I dont get choke on ash or get sars while I'm out cleaning.
So what was YING doing while I was cleaning? Playing Wii of course!!! :)
MySims is a game on the Wii. It's like The Sims, except all you do in MySims is build houses and furnish them for the townpeople. You don't have to worry about feeding your Sims or taking them to the bathroom like the original game. MySims is really cute. Definitely a girl's game. It's funny, they even have goth chick/boy characters in the game! You have to build those Sims a goth house or they won't be happy.
Ying actually went online and PRINTED OUT A WALKTHROUGH FOR THE GAME! Uhhh... Since when would she even KNOW what a walkthrough is??!?!?!! She must be a real woman ^_^
Here's a pic of the walkthrough in its natural habitat. Notice the highlighter and red pen:
GOSH. She's a SERIOUS gamer. The walkthrough is 31 pages. If I didn't say so, you would have thought that was MY walkthrough and MY gaming setup. Nintendo's really got it figured out.
Don't believe me? Check out the TIME Played. YES, that's 56 Hours on one slot. YES, that's 37 Hours on the 2nd slot.
There's a sad story about the town of Dinding.... There's a bug in the game. :( If you invite a character to live in your town, you have to build them a house SOON. If they leave the town hotel, you won't be able to move them in, and you won't be able to move anyone else in. Basically, Ying's Dinding town is stuck on 4 Stars because she can't advance anymore.
Oh. Ying would like everyone to know that her town of XiaoBai is now 5 stars and that she's working on getting the uber characters to move in next. Don't worry if you don't know what that means; I had to read the walkthrough to know what that means too!
Here she is playing. She's got that addicted-to-a-video-game-posture thing going on:
She didn't want me to post this pic, but since she's busy playing right now, she can't stop me!
