ABOUT ME

About me: I'm 42 and added another gherkin to our pickle party of a family. My husband Chuck, our 9-year-old Junior, our 6-year-old Everett, our toddler and I live in a town in Connecticut I affectionately call Mulletville Lite (aka my childhood hometown). My friends call me Nutjob, and they're right. In my husband's spare time he dresses up as a Viking and chases ghosts (and I'm the nutjob?). When I'm not busy working as a graphic designer, I lie in a ball in the corner.

Maybe it's because I don't cook...

But I can't think of anything I'd rather read less while sitting on the throne.



Vegetable recipes? Seriously?

(I took this at our friend's house last night. No one thought it was odd that I emerged from the bathroom laughing hysterically then went back in with my camera. Maybe it's because they were too engrossed in their Asparagus Frittata and Roasted Parsnips daydreams. And I'm the weird one?)

I was more concerned with your friends' toilet...ewwww. I guess it saves them knowing if it needs cleaning or not.

That One Mom said...

They actually make periodicals devoted soley to cooking with veggies? Wow.

Julia said...

Roasted parsnips my ass... That sounds awful. But I guess some body has got do like cooking veggies in the hoity toitey (hee hee) culinary way.

Jenn @ Juggling Life said...

And then she brings the cookbook into the kitchen to read the recipe while she cooks? I'm pretty sure I'd have to decline future dinner invitations.

C.B. Jones said...

I'll never eat veggies again, if I found a cookbook in someones bathroom.

I'll never eat anything again If I found a crock pot in there as well.

mannequin said...

Now, what is wrong with that?
What is wrong with looking at root vegetables longingly while eliminating one's waste matter?

Pricilla said...

Well, most people put the magazines they DON'T read in the bathroom for their guests...

blueviolet said...

My husband takes cookbooks in there too and then I can't cook from those cookbooks because they're contaminated in my mind.

Buggys said...

Where did you find these freaky people? I would reconsider my friendship. There's something seriously wrong with that!

JW.BW said...

Yup, I dont really get that one either...

Kathy said...

I'm with Jenn. I wouldn't be accepting any dinner invitations in the future. At least not ones that come with veggies on the side.

Angel said...

Well we had magazines in ours, that is until Jujube was old enough to read, now we just have random things in there because Cosmo, Glamour, and Marie Clair are not great reads for an 11 year old.

Fresh Mommy said...

Hahaha, yeah not sure that I'd want to read a cookbook while in the restroom.. and I do cook, though not every day, so maybe that is the difference.

I forgot to mention you won an award!!
Look at the award I gave you!!!

Jeanne said...

If you're in there long enough, veggies start to look tempting.

Amanda {My Life Badly Written} said...

You have just reminded me that it is meatless monday today! Maybe if I had a copy of that in my toilet I would have more inspiration!!

Thanks for stopping by my blog and saying Hi! I am now a new follower!

shydub said...

Sounds like I am not the only one where doesn't know how to cook veggies.

Suzi said...

Nice bandages on your frog in the header. Like the crutches too.

Gotta have some good reading material in the loo.

Magpie said...

What's more interesting to me is the black toilet. Um, yuck.

Frogs in my formula said...

Yes! The black toilet may be why it's even more disturbing.

Staci said...

My mom used to keep a cookbook in the bathroom, too, but she just used to it as a clipboard of sorts. She liked to draw house plans while she did her business, and the cookbook made a great surface to put the paper on. Besides, can you imagine the alternative, if she didn't use the cookbook and just pressed down on her lap? The pencil could slip, and she could get lead stuck in a place that might be mighty embarrassing to explain to her doctor.

Lindy said...

I'm so glad someone else has a black toilet. We bought our house knowing we'd change ours and of course never got around to it.

Let me assure you though - you know when it's dirty!

Stacy (the Random Cool Chick) said...

I was a tad worried that it was a picture of your bathroom, but relieved it was a 'friend' instead! ;) And I SO would have grabbed my camera for a shot, too, because yeah, I can think of better things to read on the throne than vegetable recipes! :)

And yeah - let's contaminate a cookbook in the bathroom...great idea...NOT! :)

kyooty said...

I'd be worried that they did the cooking? have you seen those shows with the splatter power of the toilet?
