The Core Dump

A strong conviction that something must be done is the parent of many bad measures

Queer eye for the slob

Ended up watching Queer Eye for the Straight Guy last night, the episode with Andrew the crew member. One thing that struck me was just what an unbelievable slob the guy was/is. How do you live with empty bottles and dirty clothes everywhere?

It was pretty amusing with the Fab 5 getting all drama queen about the state of the guy’s apartment, but at the same time it really was disgusting. Why do you elect to live in that state?

It is quite possible to be straight and actually maintain some sort of order around you, you know. Look at army barracks for instance; not the most queer-friendly environment around, and yet they manage to keep things clean and neat.
