Laundry, sorted by color

I’m all hung up on color, man.

You know you’re bored out of your fucking skull when you start matching hangers to laundry.

    Hey, some good news! I got home from LANL yesterday on the motorcycle looking like a drowned rat. We finally got a real rainstorm!

  2. Pat O’Brien Says:

    Wire hangers? Well, they are recyclable. Seems these days almost all my daily clothing choices come from a drawer.

    Send rain here please, ‘cause the drought here is getting bad again. Unless we get an October surprise from a hurricane or tropical storm, look for the water wars to ramp up again.

    • Shawn Says:

      Yeah, I was going to say something about wire hangers too. But as the chief laundry officer and an educated Inganeer, I organize my hangers by color and also utilize each color for specific uses. It is my world and it is a good world and I shall assign color appropriately… RoyGBiv.

      Regarding a whole lot of rain (Hey, does anybody else here Robert P. picking up that line?), I sure hope that the folks in the Gulf region are doing ok. If only we could spread the rain across the planet a little more evenly.

      • Pat O’Brien Says:

        Word about evenly spreading rain. What we are experiencing in Arizona, drought and excessive heat, was predicted as one effect from climate change, I think in the NASA report. I am not sure, other than I am sure I read it. Anyway, take that and the pine bark beetle infestations spreading further North, a known effect of global warming, and you have the ingredients for bad wildfires in the Southwest, especially California. But, that’s just science and it is what it is.

        Color coding hangers is a little over the top, que no?

          When I go to put the hangers back up on the rod I try to not think about color but it’s like there’s a tractor beam drawing like-colors together. It’s like I’m being controlled. It must be Jeff Bezos fault!… All those suggestions all the time.

          Regarding irregular and excessive precipitation. Yes, I know about the effects from climate change. But I thought I’d keep my comment above apolitical. And we certainly know that climate change is unfortunately political. If only our country was led by someone that was literate, had more than a 5th grade education and could make sound decisions based on evidentiary science.

        What’s all this about wire hangers? Did I miss a memo? Haters gonna hate, I guess.

        • Pat O’Brien Says:

          Hanger bumps and creases stink. I really hate it when shops hang T shirts on wire hangers and stretch the shit out of the neck. Wire hangers are an abomination, and I hate them as much as chip seal and rumble strips. There, I feel better. How about you?

          • khal spencer Says:

            This was all because of wire hangers.

          • Herb from Michigan Says:

            Jeezus…my AZ buddy needs a porter STAT! Maybe some therapy sessions to get over the chip seal and rumble strips. Well…. it’s true I hate skinny whimper wire hangers. Only worth sparing for when you are locked out of your (older model sans alarm) car. They are testing new chip seal mix here in Michigan that is promising.

        • Patrick O'Grady Says:

          Those wire hangers came from the auld sod with me sainted granda. They’re all that remains of the fabled Ó Grádaigh family arsenal. All the swords, daggers, axes, armor, and shields were melted down and temporarily repurposed as laundry implements, to await the day when The O’Grady, the chief of the name, calls us to arms once again, and they shall be forged anew.

          Either that or they’re just feckin’ hangers.

        • Pat O’Brien Says:

          Lord, forgive me for causing mis amigos to wonder about my mental health or the state of our relationship. I am at peace with yous guys and your heirloom wire hangers. It’s 105 in the shade and the pigeons are carrying canteens. The Colorado river toads sang one night, gave up, buried themselves back in the mud, and then said adifuckingos till next year. I farted yesterday and raised and raised a dust cloud. A Black Butte Porter is being opened as we speak.

          • khal spencer Says:

            Don’t feel bad, Pat. We are all on edge. Between Orange Hitler, the GOP Convention, drought, heat, riots, and wildfires, I think a little hanger humor was in order. Man, when James Baldwin wrote The Fire Next Time, he wasn’t bullshitting.

            I better open a beer too.

          • Shawn Says:

            It’s just fun to give you crappola about wire hangers. Although I wouldn’t hang my bike gear on them. My hangers are all plastic and obtained from my local thrift store. I think I paid about a buck for a bundle of 10.
            That’s a great video about wire hangers. I’ll be laughing all afternoon on my cool 88 degree road ride.

            Cheers and enjoy that beer Khal.

            My cycling kit only endures hangers long enough to dry after washing. Then it goes where it belongs.

            There’s a place for everything.

            And that place is the floor.

          • JD Says:

            Gotta ask, in all seriousness PO’G, why you need to hang up your cycling kit to dry on coat hangars. I just drape mine over the handlebars, top tube, etc. of my bike (as one would do in bike-packing and multi-day events) so as to further cement the symbiotic relationship between my kit and my two-wheeled steed. No wrinkles, great social bonding, collaboration, substance over style, etc.

            Relegating the dried garments to the floor afterwards would be insensitive, discriminatory, a true trickle down approach, and non-PC. 🙂

          • Patrick O'Grady Says:

            Too many bicycles, JD. I’d forget where my kit is and never get out of the house. As it is I have a hell of a time just picking a bike to ride.

    • Hurben Says:

      Pro tip, use a few wraps of coloured electrical tape around the hanging rack to differentiate the hanging areas to match the hangers.

      Y’all welcome.

      • Pat O’Brien Says:

        Oy vey! And you guys thought I needed a porter. I’ll send Hurben a Barrio Royo amber ale in the post. Never mind, it would be cheaper to fly there and put a sixer in my check in bag. I’ll go in October and buy a one way ticket just in case.

        • Herb from Michigan Says:

          Don’t start packing POB. tRump is going down. BUT…we will still be left with all his nut-licking supporters living amongst us. THAT is what troubles me. They need to suffer economically after November somehow, someway. On a local level, I’m trying to note which of them owns businesses I can boycott. But one must let them know you are doing so. Otherwise they will not shut up over the next four years and continue to spread lies. I’m all for free speech but for something resembling truth. We gotta stop these asswipes and it won’t get done at the voting booth. Got any non-violent ideas on drying up the conservative mud puddles left behind after tRump is gone?

    i like all my hangers to be the same plasticy ones. i don’t like wire or wood. i’m thinking of organizing my library by color.

  4. Shawn Says:

    I wonder what kind of hangers that the president uses? Are they colored? Or maybe they are all just white?

  5. SAO' Says:

    What’s the opposite problem of too much time?

    Now that home schooling has started, I’m getting 15,000 steps, 7 miles, and 25 flights of stairs in without leaving maybe 800 sf of this house.

    • Patrick O'Grady Says:

      Yeah, the neighbors with the two little girls are already showing signs of wear. Those are a couple lively little monkeys with fertile imaginations. Herding cats or eating soup sammiches must look like a doddle by comparison.
