Years from now, when I'm reading my blog from outerspace...

...I think I'll laugh about my whole iPod obsession. Then I'll blink twice, which will activate the iChip embedded behind my ear and my playlist will start.

For those of you who don't know, in high school, my senior quote was, "In a public place, always flush the toilet with your foot." This will follow me for the rest of my life, forever dating me to the year 1995. Because, back then, I could predict the invention of hovercrafts, robot maids, and teleportation, but never in my wildest imagination could I have predicted that public toilets would flush automatically.

Dream big you gize.

In other news, I seriously had hundreds of hits on my blog today (Thursday). I was like, "WhatthewhoawhaI'mpopularwait..." this might have something to do with that horrible little downer post I made below. Thank you for joining my pity party, and checking back to see what horrible thing I would post next. I should probably tell any of those non-family members who read my blog, that I have an exceptional family and extended family. I was just having a moment. Now you know the truth about me: I'm pretty, but I'm not perfect.

I think we've all had moments like that. Do you know what makes me laugh out loud every single time i think about it?...Earth science with Mrs Selvig and Ty P was spacing off and we were supposed to be reading and she walked up to him and told him to read and he started reading out loud. We were laughing so hard, and you especially could NOT stop laughing. Oh, I am laughing right now again just thinking about it!

And i have to agree with you about the whole ipod thing, such a great invention (right along with auto flushing toilets)! Oh boy, long post, sorry!

It's almost a shame, really, that public toilet go flushy all alone. Cuz that is good advice. A notable quotable.

I'm so glad to find out you aren't perfect now! Whew, what a relief. Cuz all that pretty-ness WITH perfection..........I might have had to take a magic pill or something.

That was some good advice you gave though. I used it for almost the first 30 years anyway. I like to live in the here and now, that way I'm not ever embarrassed about any futuristic predictions.

Come the think of it, I prefer to live in the past. I'm going to go make a GIANT remote control holder.

I for one am against auto-flushing toilets. I guess I am fidgety on the throne, and when I lean back, and then forwards the sensor thinks I got off the pot and flushes sending the bowl of nasty sewage water into violent effervescent action which covers my whole underside with unsanitary sludge.
I would rather just push the lever with my foot when I am done, as you once so sagely advised.

I know I contributed to a lot of those hits--had to see if my BCF was still mad at me:)

AND FOR THOSE MEMBERS WHO DONT KNOW YOUR BIG SIS...I AM PRETTY PERFECT..OH WAIT THATS SUPPOSE TO BE TWO WORDS..I AM PRETTY AND I AM PERFECT. YOU KNOW WHAT I LOVE THAT I NEVER IMAGINED IN MY MOST WILDEST DREAMS AS A YOUNGER AND EVEN HOTTER PERSON??? TOILET SEAT COVERS!!! WHO WOULD'VE THOUGHT??? WOW!!

Erin Beck said...

ALSO JUST A FACT...DID YOU KNOW THE ASIANS DO NOT SIT ON TOILET SEATS THEY STAND OR SQUAT..SWEAR..NEXT TIME YOU COME TO SCHOOL GO CHECK OUT THE SHOE MARKS ON THE TOILET SEATS! SO I TRIED IT AND IT WORKS!!

I have always been a foot flusher too! I like the auto flush but not the auto wash. Never enough water aloud to wash all the soap off.
I love my blackberry, it's my can't live without item.
Can't wait to see what furture technology brings. Kind of fun!

I was thinking the other day at YWs that I don't think of the church bathroom as "public." I usually hover & use my foot but in the church I eased on down and then... well, I still used my foot. But I need to remember that church member or not, there could still be some issues I wanna avoid.

Will the embedding of the iChip hurt?

Emily--I'd like to believe that hundreds of individuals came to my blog, but if it was just my BCF, that's cool too.

Krissy--I spewed Diet Coke all over my keyboard when I read your comment. That was hilarious! And how do you remember names of random people from 10+ years ago?

L--Yes, why don't church bathrooms have the seat protectors? Do they think church goer's bums are perfect or something? It takes me forever to arrange the toilet paper all over the seat.

Jenny- I was in need of some good old-fashioned entertainment so I was looking at some of your old posts in January. 3 things that I am seriously cracking up at right now.
1. The picture of your softball team where the hats are barely on top of your heads.
2. The glamour shot of the ex-girlfriend. Why did she take a glamour shot with her mom and give it to her boyfriend? This makes no sense to me.
3. Your dance picture with Rob Chatterton. He is one of my husband's best friends! So that was pretty funny.

Don't be frightened by my blog-stalking.

Oh Jenny, I feel like it is too late to comment, but none the less, I enjoyed this post more than you think it did. Or did I? Not sure was your expected level of enjoyment was, but I am pretty sure I surpassed it.
