laundry room lust…

I admit it, I’m a laundry room loser! It’s the one room where I figure I can just let it all hang out, and oh, does it hang out. It’s an undulating sea of clothes, ski equipment, wrapping paper and unmatched socks (I can hear my neat-freak sister shouting out “amen”, ’cause she snuck in to the forbidden room a few months ago and nearly fainted).

At least I know the error of my ways. I recognize my weakness, and I own it. In therapy circles, they’d laud me for my courage and self-awareness…for about a week…and then they’d tell me to get over myself and just do something about it (I believe that’s a direct quote from my mother).

I covet my friends’ beautiful laundry rooms, and dream about walking in to my own sparkly laundry room some day.

This dreamy laundry room is just waiting for me to float in wearing chiffon and to drape myself over the table.

I’m planning my next Oscar’s party in this shiny righteous laundry room!

Oooh. Stainless steel, quilted backsplash, blue appliances…be mine!

From Marriage to Motherhood describes this room as a “laundry retreat”, which made me laugh out loud. She’s right! I’d be sitting in that little striped chair calling room service for an in-room massage and glass of chardonnay (to which Mark would probably reply with a cynical “bah ha ha ha”).

My dream laundry room is going to be state-of-the-art. I won’t settle for any more stupid “listening for the buzzer” to alert me when the laundry is finished ’cause according to MSNBC, Microsoft is working on a prototype that links the laundry room with wireless technology. Now I can sit in front of my computer or TV and be alerted to the fact that the wash needs to go in to the dryer. Hallelujia.

My dream laundry room will also have a trouser steamer. Trend Hunter magazine calls this the “Trouser Ironing Robot” and advises, “Stay lazy and look good”–now that’s advice I can embrace!

I’ll also have a U-Button iron, a button-evading iron (why didn’t I think of this). Trend Hunter magazine calls this the “Neat freak’s BFF”. LOL.

Forget everything else…I’m gettin’ me one of these baby’s! (imagine a light shining down heaven and a choir of angels singing) The WashDryLaundry machine!!!!!!

This little piece of manna from heaven washes and dries your clothes while they hang in the machine. They hang, therefore, they’re not wrinkled. It can handle 16 pieces of clothing at a time, and according to InventorSpot, the inventor, Oliver Blackwell, claims that his device will save 10 days of ironing a year. Did I mention…Hallelujia???
