Unfortunately i did not notice this until a little later when i went "huh, why is there a pool of brownish stuff in front of the fridge." Then i opened the fridge and there was a brownish puddle around the case of diet A&W in the fridge, and i thought "huh, that's really weird, i guess one of the cans somehow spontaneously burst?" Except it seemed a bit thicker than pop, and then i touched it and went "what the hell is that?" Of course it didn't take me that much longer to find the now empty bottle lying on its side in the top refrigerator door shelf.
So i spent a lot of time cleaning up oil and throwing out some things that probably ought to have been thrown out awhile ago. On the plus side, between that, the dishes, and cleaning up for visitors last week the apartment is currently the cleanest it's been in a long time. (Note, "cleanest", not "clean". The kitchen in particular would need a lot of work. Such as the potato that's been sitting on the counter for over a year.) I suppose if i want to keep it that way i ought to have friends come over more often, particularly cute female friends, speaking strictly from a motivational perspective. Of course that would require actually making some friends who would be local enough to come over on a regular basis =P
