    Thanks for reminding me to fold the laundry. I am definitely in the “let it pile” camp, no matter my intentions to the contrary.

    Just took a little trip to Tranquility Forest. Luckily I managed to avoid Benita Bizarre.

    Lil’ Guildies was adorable and full of wrongness and I would never ever watch it if it were real. But well done on the song. :)

    I have made my small but heartfelt donation to FudgieThon. Kudos on your philanthropic success.

    Definitely a do-laundry-when-I-need-socks type, which ends up being about every two or three weeks. Much simpler than my high school days of marching band and daily dance classes when I had to wash most of my clothes about once a week.

    We have no problem *doing* the laundry. It’s after we finish that we let it pile. :s

    I just listened to this episode, since I listen in random order. I’m definitely a ‘let it pile’r, and indeed I have bought new underwear on occasion because I ‘didn’t have time’ to do laundry. I would argue it’s better than doing an Arnold J. Rimmer and turning it inside out, thus extending the wear time by a further two weeks. I find it interesting and a little worrying that even though I wear T-shirts and underwear for roughly the same amount of time before washing them, I still have T-shirts (likely featuring comedy musicians) left when this happens.

    I don’t have to worry about even separating out the underwear though, because the washing machine in my building is gigantic and can usually fit most or all of an I-have-no-underwear-left sized pile. If I have a new darkly-colored item of clothing though, the first time I wash it it’ll be with other dark things, or things whose colour doesn’t really matter such as towels and the old underwear I keep for the above-mentioned emergencies.

    I probably shouldn’t admit all this on the Internet.
