Tonight, I went out to dinner with a good girlfriend. We had been meaning to catch up for a while, and our night out was great fun. I got home at around 9:30—still relatively early—but everyone was fast asleep. I could have happily joined them but then I remembered, I have a tradition to uphold, and I put myself straight to work.

Our house was due for inspection today. In Australia, the rental company inspects the property every 12 weeks, assuring the owner there is no damage (and often checking up on the tenants' housekeeping skills as a side effect). I've been cleaning all morning, and the girls were happily engaged in one of their favorite past-times, dancing. After a while, they asked and I readily agreed to put on the DVD of their ballet recital so they could dance along. It bought me such good uninterrupted cleaning time that I broke my own rule and put on a second dance DVD afterwards. That didn't work out so well.

I've added a running poll on the sidebar for those of you following the Muses this Mardi Gras season. My contest will run until just beyond the end of the Muses parade, midnight on February 16th. I may have to throw in some genuine King Cake to sweeten the deal.
