In Praise of Window Cleaners

Eyes down, look in. As I sat watching paint dry, I wondered whether this was just too dull, too pointless or too trivial to blog. But no, I decided I would make my dullest blog post ever. My windows before and after cleaning, as seen from my desk. Enjoy.

Amended to add this, at Lynne‘s suggestion:


  1. Ruthie says:

    At least it’s clean, Dan… At least it’s clean…

  2. Its all too paneful…

  3. My brothers a window cleaner, he said he’ll be happy to oblige and undercut your current cleaner so long as you paid his travel expenses for a day by the seaside :-p

  4. Dan Wilson says:

    Oh Lynne: I’ll have to add that.

  5. But Dan, the first photo seems to have a whitish film all over it! Is this a post about getting your glasses (or camera lens) professionally cleaned, or your windows??

  6. I have just realised my mistake – the photo was taken from INSIDE your house. I presumed your desk was in the middle of the street, in homage to the mighty Beck’s video for Deadweight:

    How galling is it that your dullest blog post has received more comment than so many others in to which you put genuine effort?

    Sod this eBay nonsense: it’s clearly time for tales of domesticity. Give the punters what they want. Next time: carpets before and after vacuum cleaning?

  8. Lynne says:

    Dan, have you got some nice paint drying in a corner anywhere?

    Otherwise, perhaps your sink before and after the washing up…

    That would really raise the bandwidth requirement. LOL
