Rococo Insinuations

"I keep telling her I'm not prepared to tolerate her risible, her tendentious, her eclectic, her ornate, her rococo insinuations and garbled inventions." -Harold Pinter, A Kind of Alaska

I got inspired to clean my disgusting box fan last weekend. I’ve had it for 3 or 4 years and never even bothered to dust it. 

I grabbed my screwdriver and took off the front and back pieces, then washed both of those in the sink. The fan blades don’t detach, so I went to work with rags and some Trader Joe’s all purpose cleaner. 

It’s so bright and white, it almost looks like a new fan. I know cleaning something is kind of a pedestrian thing to be proud of, but I don’t know the last time I felt so…adult.

    I have to do this with our window unit before we put it in. It’s all gummed up with NYC black grime. Can’t imagine how...
