We had guests over to play games yesterday (Kill Dr. Lucky and Lord of the Fries) evening, and the apartment hadn't been really cleaned in ages - largely since we've had no guests over lately. It's amazing how having guests already here helps to focus the mind on the 10-minutes-maximum worth of things which, if cleaned up, will make the place feel presentable. My apartment looks much better for remarkably little effort. It's not the same thing as properly cleaning and sorting, but it certainly looks better.
One of those guests who came over and played games last night was Lindsay, who as of today, now has a journal of her own: pittenweem!
