So on another blog there was a discussion about bathrooms and gross bathrooms, and well, I for some reason felt inclined to share. And since I am in such a good mood, I thought I’d share this little vignette with y’all. It is rather gross, so y’all may want to skip it. Just sayin’.

nothing compares 2 u

Speaking of songs, have I mentioned how frikin’ awesome “Nothing Compares 2 U” is? Seriously, Sinead O’Connors version just kicks so much ass.
