Floss conundrum

So now that I'm going to be a good girl and floss my teeth every night, I face a serious question: order of operations. I've always brushed first, then used mouthwash, which seems a highly logical order to me, but I can make equally good arguments for flossing either before or after brushing (I'm pretty convinced the mouthwash ought to be last).

Which order do you prefer?

Brush first, then floss
Floss first, then brush
What is this "flossing" of which you speak?
Some other fabulous scheme, which I will explain in comments.

Present your evidence! (Or your strong personal opinions, or wild guesses. Those work too.)
