  • It's a festivus miracle!

  • Dear Bachelors of the World,

    You need the following items in your bathroom:



    tiny trash can with a liner

    extra roll of tp



    December 18, 2007

  • Wot's a roll of tp?

    December 18, 2007

  • Heehee.

    December 18, 2007

  • Finally! A Festivus for the rest of us.

    Toilet paper(tp), always a good thing to keep on hand.

  • I know men (plural!) who lack, on average, three outta four of the aforementioned articles. If I have to:

    a. put my dirty trash into my clean purse,

    b. tote said trash across the den, or

    c. ask for assistance

    you ain't gettin' no second date.

  • Hear hear, jennarenn!! Why can't guys keep their gorram bathrooms properly stocked?!**

    **(In the interest of full disclosure, it should be said that I ended up marrying a guy like that.)

  • I say you give him his own bathroom and don't stock it.

    Wait...that probably won't bother him. ;-)

  • I don't want to imagine chained_bear as married. I want to imagine her dragging men back to her lair, devouring them with a bottle of ketchup in one hand a thesaurus in the other, then heading out to root around in the forest for elusive wild testicles.

    December 19, 2007

  • Haha! That's chained_bear, all right. But it's mustard, not ketchup, bilby. French's yellow mustard. Nothing else will do.

    December 19, 2007

  • You're right. I'm lousy at observing ungulates closely when they're going condimental.

    December 19, 2007

  • Running to check...

    By the bathroom criteria, I would warrant a second date! Of course, I'd probably say or do something terrible to offend her, but at least I would have been prepared.

    December 19, 2007

  • Well... actually... that's exactly what happened, bilby.

    Only reesetee is right: it's yellow mustard. None of that Grey Poupon shit.

    December 19, 2007

  • Right. Elusive wild testicles are very good with yellow mustard.
