Poo, featured articles and twitter- Oh my!

Poo, featured articles and twitter- Oh my!

Yeah I know cheesy title huh? It’s all I’ve got though. Just more musings and other news so lets dive right in!

I bought a gallon of shampoo and a gallon of conditioner online a few weeks back. The FedEx man just delivered it and boy am I happy! See the thing is we love our Nature’s Gate herbal hair products. We started using them in Flagstaff when we found them at a natural food store.

When we moved out here we were really disappointed to find out that nobody carries it in natural food stores here. Also, the natural food stores are a bit of a joke here.

So I resorted to online purchasing and found that buying the full gallon is cheaper and cuts down on waste much more than buying the small individual bottles. So we have a gallon of shampoo and a gallon of conditioner in the bathroom now, Yippie!

N left me some poo smears today in the toilet and after having this very same thing happen for weeks and weeks I finally said something to him. I said “take a field trip with me” and we went to see the smears. He laughed and apologized but I don’t get how the smears aren’t noticed in the first place.

If my poo leaves smears inside the toilet that the water doesn’t wash away it bothers me and I scrub them away before leaving the bathroom. I like to leave a mess free toilet when I leave because I know I wouldn’t want to see other people’s poo smears when I go in to use the bathroom. It is kind of like finding random nasty pubes on a public toilet, makes you want to vomit and not go anywhere near the toilet!

Anyway, enough shampoo and poo talk. In other news I got an this morning email saying:

“Congratulations, your article ‘How to avoid family fights during the holidays’ is on Helium’s homepage today!”

I write for many freelance articles for various sites, today an article of mine is on the homepage of http://www.helium.com/. I have been featured before but it is always nice when it happens, so go check it out okay?

I finally signed up for twitter today so I wanted to share that with you. I have tried to find many of you already but if I haven’t followed you yet please follow me okay? I am also working to get the twitter id plugin here. Yay!

So what is new with you today?

  • Oh, and I can’t stand the poo smears in the toilet either but somehow I, too, am the only one in this house who minds leaving a trail of my leavings. Is that TMI?

  • Ok, I in a previous reply I really thought I had shared all I could in the poo department in blog format, but,,,, I HATE POO SMEARS! I travel BC Ferries alot, sometimes once a week, and in those situations you can’t control other peoples poo! The worst for me is when there is a streak on the lid! You have to wonder, did the boat hit a big wave and they slid off the toilet seat? Do you not look after the fact to be sure you left no trace of yourself/your DNA behind? Can you imnage being convicted of a crime because they got your DNA from a poo smear? If it has smeared the toilet, can you assume they also have smears on their underwear? Can you pity the spouse who must wash said smears? So many questions, so much smear, so little time,, lol. We should have smear detectors, like they have metal detectors.. beep beep smear alert,, beep beep smear alert!

  • OOOOPS, sorry, I said lid in my post, I meant seat! Now a poo smear on a lid would be a whole other issue!

  • I’m with you on the poo smears. They drive me nuts.

    Congratulations on being featured! I had no idea you wrote for other sites. I’ve thought about doing that as well, but have no idea how to go about it.

  • On the subject of TMI, I’m quite used to my husband leaving the seat up. Years of training on that. So what does he do last week? He puts the seat down.

    I get up in the middle of the night, and out of habit reach to pull the seat down… but it’s the lid I pull down.

    That was a really dirty trick, IMHO.

  • I don’t get it with the poo either! 🙂

    Congratulations on making it to the helium home page! I write a lot for them too – but in spurts. They’ve really made some changed

  • Yeah, I don’t get it about the poo either:-)

    Congratulations on making it to the Helium home page. I write for them a lot – but in spurts. They’ve made some great changes lately – seems like they just keep getting better and better!

    Have you checked out Associated Content? They’re not quite as awesome as helium, but I’ve had a lot of articles published there too.

  • Thank god, Im not alone in the smear department. Its totally gross when humans leave their marks in the toilets! lol I however would die of embaressment if I left a trail. Why would you want someone else to see your leftovers?
    Poop smears on the lid are not impossible!!! Just let my 3 year old stay with you and he’ll show you how its done!

  • We must have different shaped toilet bowls, because we don’t end up with smears–and if we did, I’m not sure I’d take the time to clean it before leaving. Hmmm. thoughts to ponder. We DO have a rule in this house that all toilet lids go down when finished. Always. No Exception.

  • The things you learn about people through their blogs:) We have a strict no toilet lid is left up rule. However, I have to say that I can’t recall ever seeing a poo smear. I’m thankful for that. And yay for twitter…I love it!
