5-6-09 Wednesday (Pillow Talk)

memory_foamWe did some errands today.  Oh, nothing major, and most were done  in the same shopping center.  Jim bought another latex pillow.  It would seem as though he’s on the 3rd or 4th pillow in 30 days.  He’s high maintenance I guess.  Regular pillows, memory foam egg crate, memory foam non-egg crate, latex, and I’m not sure what will be next.  Me?  I’m liking what I have which is the non-egg crate memory foam.  I’m not quite sure why it’s call memory foam.  After about 10 seconds, my head impression is gone.  It forgot me.  So why isn’t it, “Forget About It Foam”.  Be sure to say that with an Italian-Brooklyn type accent.  It’s much more fun that way.  Maybe “Who Are You Again? Foam”.  Yeah, I’ll stop at 2.  Sure, feel free to add to the list in the comment section.

Clorox After the pillow purchase, we went to Walmart for groceries.  I bought one of those Clorox ReadyMops.  I’ve been “mopping” with a sponge on the floor, on my hands and knees.  I finally decided to buy this thing and figured I could disassemble it and store it.  Remember, I don’t have a tall place to store something like this.  Anyway, I chose this over the Swiffer WetJet since this was only $13.00 and the Swiffer runs $20.  The problem is, I can’t get this to come apart again.  Anyone out there with a Swiffer WetJet that can tell me if there’s would be easy to break down into 2?  I may have to return this and get a Swiffer.  Ugh.

I went ahead and mopped with it to see if I like it.  Well, it kept leaving dry spots on the floor as if that part of the pad wasn’t getting wet enough.  That was a little annoying.  After I finished “mopping”, Jim shows me a wet paper towel that is dirty.  What he was doing, I never asked.  Anyway, it was dirty.  I mopped again.  The cleaning pad wasn’t as dirty the second time around.  Maybe the floor was REALLY dirty.  Ewwwwww.

Tonight we went out to dinner with Tim.  Tim is the other guy that was traveling with Gregg when we met them in Seattle.  We haven’t seen Tim yet so this was a treat.  He took us out to a Mexican Restaurant.  Yum!  Tomorrow we’re to have dinner at Gregg’s house. I’m grateful to have plans! 

After dinner, Tim, Jim and I walked around the downtown Scottsdale area.  Most everything was closed but it was fun to window shop.  We stopped off at a bar for happy hour.  BS was the name of it.  I have no idea what THAT particular BS stood for.  It was a gay bar, it was pretty empty.


  1. i never had any luck with the swiffer or any mop like that. i still use the old fashion type myself. hey thanks for the comments the last one on sleep walking was funny. wonder if it would work? haha! your a hoot love your blog.


  2. A word of caution about the Swiffer Wet Jet, if you have pets that lick their feet, then the chemical in the wet jet is toxic to pets and has caused liver failure in those animals that tend to lick their feet.

  3. It's called memory foam because it remember its original shape.

    Yes, I work in a foam industry (we make earplugs and other things out of foam similar to memory foam).

    Exciting, I know.

  4. FYI- Swiffer Wet Jet is not harmful to animals.


  5. @Liz: Funny about the snopes thing. I already looked it up and emailed CB about it. Then I refreshed my Dashboard and saw 2 more comments.

    Oh, and Liz, don't steal my memory foam thunder.... ya killjoy. :-)


  6. I like the swiffer wet jet (or the clorox one) if you mop the floor often. John is a typical bachelor and doesn't clean as well or as often as I would. I used 3 pads on his little kitchen floor and it's about 90% clean now. (he needs a scrub brush and some elbow grease)

  7. what a fantastic blog!! I am so happy to have found you guys. Thanks aaron!!


  8. If you wanna get all serious about foam... you could call it "Confor" foam.

    Foam is serious business, Garret. There is nothing funny about it. Nothing.

    Trust me.

  9. "Who Are You Again" Foam?

    Classic Garret.
