Cleaner does it every 2 weeks
I do it if there's an issue/noticeable mess (or a quick tidy if visitor coming)

But I live alone


Thanks for the replies guys. I guess it is circumstantial for most. Makes sense that those with kids and pets need to clean more often. I'd been hoovering once every 2-3 weeks, but we only have a carpet in the bedroom. Might have to consider doing it more often.

Since getting a cordless vacuum cleaner I think we hoover probably 3 times a week, but that's more down to the convenience of the device than the house being particularly dirty. Downstairs is completely wooden flooring so dust/hairs/bits of stuff tend to be more noticeable than on carpets, so they get whizzed on the regular.

Bud-a-buuuu

Buu-buu-buuuu

(slightly higher pitched now)
Bud-a-buuuu
Bud-a-buuuu
Buu-buu-buuuu

I trust my extremely detailed rendition will be enough for one of you internet wizards to provide me with what I'm looking for.


Is it anything on these lists?

"Bud-a-buuuu
Buu-buu-buuuu"

Just makes me think of the Terminator theme tune. :datass:

I think the "bum" sound works for the intro and early build, but the main swell of the piece is definitely better served by a "bud a buuu, buu buu buu" sound. ;)

And great, now I'm just thinking about bums!

It appears to have absolutely bugger-all to do with space or rocket launches, so I was way off in that regard. Apparently it was a big inspiration for John Williams's score on Saving Private Ryan which makes a lot of sense, it's quite militaristic but in a "brave boys doing a horrible job" kind of way.

Anyway, mystery solved, thanks all for playing :D

Just had to go and swear my marriage affirmation/affidavit at the British Embassy in Tokyo, to say I'm not married back home, so I can get married here.

The girl who did it was quite attractive, spoke really good English with a good accent and works at the Embassy. Should have looked at her seductively, cast my eyes down to "the goods" and said: "It's still not too late you know, the Queen doesn't need to know about today".

I was very relieved that it's done through glass windows, as I did eat quite a lot of garlic last night. It sort of felt like being in a prison though, which is quite foreboding when it was all about marriage.

But seriously congrats on the waifu. One annoying thing about this though is that if you have kids, they will have to chose if they want to remain Japanese citizens when they turn 21, as they don't allow adults to hold dual citizenship.

I was a bit intimidated by the place too, but our guy was sound. Especially when we didn't have a place booked to actually get married (it's a turn up to the council office and sign gooseberry fool job) and didn't mind that we were obviously wingin it.

People at work are apparently leaving their drinks on the sink in the public bathroom while they're using the toilet. :dread: Someone had left a laptop and a cup of coffee in there today.
