Save Water-Pee in the Shower

My husband Chuck has been hounding me to publicly endorse peeing in the shower. He is convinced that is saves water. I was leery about the actual benefits of peeing in the shower so I did a little bit of research.

I was amazed to discover that you can save a minimum of 584 gallons of water per year per person in your household by just peeing in the shower once a day instead of the toilet. (

Well gosh darnet, the man is on to something.

According to the Free Republic, 42% of Americans already pee in the shower. Imagine how much water we can save if we can get the rest of the country on board.

I also heard a rumor that peeing on your feet in the shower prevents athletes foot. I couldn't find any conclusive evidence either way. Some experts agree while others maintain that keeping the foot as dry as possible and NOT peeing on it is the answer.

Some people may be concerned with the general grossness of peeing in the shower. Rest assured that unless you eat asparagus, the pee smell will wash right down the drain. Asparagus eaters may want to pee before they wash so that the soap can dilute the asparagus smell.

In the wise words of my husband " Save Water-Pee in the Shower"

He's very proud of himself as you can see :)

The Tale of a Nose Piercing

I went to get my nose pierced last Thursday. It's something I've been thinking about doing for months and I was always too chicken to get it done. When my work-wife told me about this place in the Spokane Valley Mall that numbs you before you get it pierced and I was all over it.

So I went to the mall and signed the legal papers and went into the piercing room. The piercer was a super sweet girl and we chatted about our mutual obsession with vampire novels. I turned her on to Laurell K. Hamilton (go read her by the way).

So Valerie numbs me up and started piercing. OUCH! That numbing stuff is overrated and I was unhappily surprised by how much it hurt, I am a natural child birther so you would think that I could handle a little needle, but nope.

It was over fast and I was pleased to have a new stud in my nose. I read all the care instructions and followed them precisely.

This morning I woke up and my nose had absorbed the stud. YUCK! Not only did it hurt to push the stud back through but now it's all gooey and ick.

So this afternoon I am going back to Silver Safari to see what they can do. I'm thinking I just need a longer post. I really don't want a huge Dennis Rodman hoop and the piercing is so high that I'm afraid I will have to get one. I may just say screw it and take it out all together.

Stay tuned for more sagas of my nose...

My 9 year old daughter took this because she said I looked like someone from the 80's, actually I think she meant the 70's but can sort of see my nose.
