Introducing B

Hi all! So my partner kind of wants this blog to be somewhat anonymous for a while (in case we suck...LOL.) So I thought I would introduce myself as much as I can while still being anonymous. I'm B, the cleaning, organizing, artistic, only child of this relationship. I know, artistic and "neat freak" don't generally go together. But, its not my fault, I am the child of a gay father and an overbearing, "cleanliness is close to Godliness," right wing fundamentalist mother. As a result I love music, dancing, musicals, old movies, cooking, art (making and observing), and straightening, cleaning, and organizing. I guess you could say I don't mind making a mess, as long as it gets cleaned up after... thoroughly! LOL.

Anyway, so I decided to make the first truly "domestic" post to the blog. The rest of this post will probably only appeal to pet owners and neat freaks like me. We have two cats. You may have noticed them in our profile pic. A tortie and a tuxedo, and they are awesome! But, their cat hair and the food and litter they drag everywhere are not awesome. So, my baby got me a new vacuum! Which may sound lame, but I was totally excited about it (I know insert joke about lesbians and carpets.) But I was excited because I love when things are clean. It works so well I thought I would post a pic and a description, in case anyone out there is in the market for a new vacuum.
It's the Hoover Windtunnel Pet Rewind Plus. It has awesome suction, great pet hair removal tools for the extension, it's light, the handle folds down, and the filter is cleanable so you don't have to replace it. It's worked wonders so far. I love it!

Thanks for letting me introduce myself and next time I won't be so long winded.:-)

  1. So a gay father and a right wing fundamentalist mother--must have made for some interesting family dynamics.
    That vacuum would run down the street dragging its cord if it came into contact with the pet hair in this house. :)

    I started anonymous too but it didn't take long for me to peek out. Welcome to blog word!

  2. I'm kind of diggin on the gay dad and right wing fundamental Christian mother. Holidays must have been fabulous!
    We have a cat, 2 dogs and assorted fish. Love the baggless vacuums. We had a bad experience with one, so now they are off the table for consideration. I think it's silly, and we need to jump in and try again.

  3. Thanks for the welcome Mel! Stan- My parents divorced when I was young, but I was exposed to two very different views of the world. I am actually kind of happy for the experience because by seeing both worlds first hand I was able to see what I wanted to be and more importantly what I did NOT want to be. Oh, and bagless is totally the way to go with vacuums. So much easier, and it has a rewinding cord that is kinda awesome ;-).

  4. Hi "B". Why the mystery? It's not necessary to post your last name (not advisable) but you can go with a first name, even if it is a non de plume. Until you do, I'll call you "Betty" after my dear, departed Mom who you remind me of with her Windtunnel.

  5. Well I am honored to be called Betty after your mother! The secrecy is on behalf of my better half who prefers, for now, to be anonymous. I went with "B" because just picking another name had not occurred to me, LOL. But now that you mention it, calling myself an actual name is much better than just "B". With your permission I would love to use "Betty" until my partner is ready to "come out".
