This is starting to become a thing, me being a day late on  my scheduled posting at Ignitum Today. Hopefully next time I can get ahead of the game. Anyhow, here’s a link to my latest post over at Ignitum Today, if you’d like to read it.

I’m hoping I’ll have time to get back on the computer later for quick takes, but the Ogre (at my insistence) invited his students over to our house tonight for “light refreshments” and a pre-play discussion of As You Like It. I’ve interpreted “light refreshments” to mean that I can make a dip and a sweet bread and then throw some frozen Trader Joe’s apps in the oven, but unfortunately what I can’t do is ignore the dreadful state of my house. My mother sent an Easter package for the kids this week and included were eleven billion stickers, which have ended up all over the table, chairs, walls, dishes, and children. So most of my day will be spent trying to figure out how to scrape stickers off walls and tables. If you have any tips, please, leave them in the comment box. Please.

Happy Friday, everyone!

    Oh, stickers! Joy. When I worked at a fancy chocolate store, our boss had the habit of taping little notes everywhere on the plastic and glass counters, and then asking us to get the goo from the tape off the counters. (I KNOW.) We had this amazing stuff, called Goo-Gone, that worked miracles. If that doesn't work, rubbing alcohol on safe surfaces (not wood) and scraping with a dull butter knife or metal spatula. You can also use a blow dryer to heat up the sticker so the glue is softened and then peel it off. Good luck!

    Warm water will help remove stickers fairly quickly!

    I have come to find that the "next to godliness" all-purpose cleaner from Trader Joe's removes anything. And by anything I mean months old (don't judge) sweet potatoes from grout, crusted on peanut butter, mystery stains, and, of course, stickers. It's pretty much my go to- and to think, I just bought it because of the name!
