We have a thread now! Thanks Gibber, have been meaning to look into this and the site looks good. And I bloody love swearing. grin.

Let's see if I can post a linky link.

Unfuck your habitat

GibberTheMonkey Fri 06-Sep-13 17:57:06

I got myself the app
I'm not very well so struggling a bit but got an instruction for the kitchen then did two 20:10s on it using the timer. It looks good though I've been slow (I feel weak) so could probably do more on a good day. Hope to get on top of it within a couple more sessions but it'll have to wait now.

I read that as unfucky our habitat grin
I like bloody swearing to
It's fucking satisfying
Especially in relation to shitty housework

I follow the blog on feedly buried find it bloody annoying. Like fly lady the reminders are the wrong time zone. It serves as a reminder to get stuff done.

Not /buried. I meant *but

I love this:

"Laundry and dishes have 3 steps:

1. Wash
2. Dry
3. Put it away goddammit! "

Step 3 beats me Every Time. confused grin

I showed the site to a friend
His response was
"Challenge: Put Your Clothes Away Like a Damn Grownup
You have a bunch of clothes sitting around. I know you do. Whether they’re clean and piled in a basket, or dirty and on the floor, or probably a bunch of both, they aren’t where they belong. Take 20 minutes to put that shit away."
What I want to know is, how the hell did they know???
My damned flat's bugged. That's the first bit I'm unfucking, the fucking surveillance!
I'm not looking anymore, I'm scared.
grin

Bloody brilliant. Profanity motivation. Fucking marvellous.

peggotty Sat 07-Sep-13 08:45:30

Thanks for bringing this to my fucking attention - are we allowed to fucking swear while we clean our shit up?! Bloody cathartic!

CatAmongThePigeons Sat 07-Sep-13 08:47:07

It is a fly lady with swears, I always respect people who use swears as a motivational tool. Will have a good read of the site today.

Chubfuddler Sat 07-Sep-13 08:50:11

I love this site. Thanks for link.

My house is very tidy but that's because I havering since applied similar "get the fuck on with it" principals to my own life.

fffinsake Sat 07-Sep-13 08:53:01

THIS is why fly lady never worked for me. Twee apron-wearing bullshit.

fffinsake Sat 07-Sep-13 08:53:30

It looks great, thank fuck you posted about it. Thank you.

HerrenaHarridan Sat 07-Sep-13 08:55:37

shock How do the know about the teetering piles of clean washing that I hide in my bedroom blush

buildingmycorestrength Sat 07-Sep-13 09:11:09

Love the fact it is not aimed at women, wives, mothers, etc. but PEOPLE.

Because PEOPLE live in houses and have to try to keep on top of housework and like swearing.

Have casually mentioned, 'Have you seen 'Unfuck Your Habitat?' to my husband. He said no. I don't want to press it as he already thinks I am strange for not wanting to wallow in filth. But maybe he'll Google it and and the lovely swearing will make something click somewhere in that enormous brain of his....grin

This sounds like just what I need...will be back later to learn more

fffinsake Sat 07-Sep-13 09:16:58

Is there an email list or something?

hazchem Sat 07-Sep-13 09:50:42

Yes this sounds like the shit I need in my life.

Do we sign up with them or something. I'm scared of being sent hundreds of emails to remind me to clean up ( I'm looking at you FLYLADY)

NoComet Sat 07-Sep-13 09:52:15

I think I might have to put a poster of step 3 in each of my DDs bedrooms

3. Put it away goddammit!

Also it forgets step 0.

0. Put it in the fucking laundry basket

I'm a SAHM, I'm totally happy to sort stages 1 and 2 (wash and dry), and I will do 3 when time permits, but I'm sodded if I'm digging round bedrooms trying to find what is and isn't dirty. Also I'm sodded if I'm doing 3 while you watch be from your bloody game of SIMS!

daimbardiva Sat 07-Sep-13 10:10:34

This is perfect, thank you! I'm another who could never get on with the tweeness of fly lady. I'm a serial marathoner and always find myself cleaning whwn people are due round.

claretandamberforever Sat 07-Sep-13 10:20:42

just marking my fucking place.

TeamEdward Sat 07-Sep-13 10:24:50

I seriously need to unfuck my house. The holidays have FUBAR'd it, and it's taken me the first week of school to recover enough to realise the state of the place!

What a fucking fabulous site grin - I totally agree with the spirit of it not sure that I am ready to actually unfuck my house. If I were, I'd not sit here radomly lurking on MN
