Secondary issue: I hate hardwood floors. Hate, hate, HATE them. They show every little tiny speck of dirt that comes in the door on someone's feet, and since I don't feel like investing in area rugs (tertiary question: why does it make people so happy to have hardwood floors when the first thing they're going to do is cover them with an area rug to 1' away from the wall?) hardwood floors don't work for me. I just hate them. Granted, carpets may as a whole harbor more ick than floors do, but you can vacuum that. It goes away. No problem. Plus, when it does get dirty, it doesn't show it, and it doesn't stick to your feet and feel icky. HATE hardwood floors. Dustmops and swiffers help, but a hardwood livingroom floor is no kitchen, and wet-mopping isn't a great idea. HATE hardwood floors.
- Not finding swiffer pads at Walgreens (despite the fact that they sell the liquid)
- :: annoying
- Getting Safeway delivered and forgetting to order pads
- :: frustrating
- Taking Muni to Safeway just to learn they're sold out
- :: infuriating
- Finding an unopened box under the kitchen sink
- :: PRICELESS

you have to think of area rugs as accessorizing.

Ya know, one thing I've noticed about the Bay Area, they are always out of shit here. Every other week there is no Pepsi One at Cala, Safeway, or any other store I attempt to go to. I had the same thing with whatever brand of razor blades I use, for like a month I went around to every single store in the city/east bay looking for them. And every week, at least 1 or 2 things on the grocery list are sold out. It's just wierd. I've never seen this in Chicago or Michigan. Sure, if there was a great price, something might be sold out by Saturday afternoon, but it'd be restocked by Monday or Tuesday at the latest. Here it's like, no sale or anything, there just aren't any swiffer pads anywhere to be found. It's not normal I tell you.
Oh, and we've been having the to hardwood or not to hardwood debate since moving in. You pretty much hit on all the nots, except sound echo. In fact, the only positive is that they look spiffy when clean. Fortunately, we can delay the decision for a few years cause there are too many higher priorities.
