Bathroom Blogging

Hey! I can blog from the bathroom with this new blogging app for my IPod Touch.

No pictures, though...I have to draw the line somewhere.

Now I'm wondering just why anyone would want to blog from the bathroom. Of course, I don't know why anyone would want to use the amazing technology that is the Internet to share dumb pictures of cats, either; but they do.

Says the person who posts pictures of her mouldy leftovers...

Hmmm...I can't seem to find italics here. I don't think I can blog without italics. And boldface - where's my boldface type?

I must persevere, regardless. Because really, this post is a cry for help - an urgent plea from those of us inundated with the plague that is/are stinkbugs. It is freezing cold outside, which means - according to my extensive research - that these nasty creatures should all be peacefully hibernating in my attic.

Apparently, no one has told the stinkbugs that valuable piece of information. They are here in the bathroom. They are in the den. For all I know, they lie in wait for me in the bedroom. Resistance is futile. If you never hear from me again, you will know why. But I will go down fighting.

Gah - typing on this tiny keyboard is making me nauseous. Must. Stop. Now.


  1. I've often wished for a laptop in the bathroom -- because, you know, sometimes that is the only time we have a moment to sit down! But that would require wireless technology in my house. :(
    Happily, there is still texting availability.

    I will never understand stinkbugs. I've found several in the past week. What the ??

  2. Remember that episode of Seinfeld where George tried to return the book and they could tell it had been in the bathroom? I'm just saying. It's one way to be sure no one else takes your iPad.

  3. And here I surmised you were blogging in the bathroom because with 6 kids that's the only place you can get a little peace and quiet. My bad.

  4. I caught my son's stomach virus and have spent far too much time in my bathroom. I don't need to be in YOUR bathroom, too!!

  5. Stinkbugs are loved by their mothers too, ya know!

  6. Blogging from the iPod touch is only useful when it's an emergency. (or I'm unable to use the computer due to the fact that one of the kids is doing something lame like homework)
    How do you like that nifty little feature that changes the word to what the iPod thinks you want to type and not necessarily what YOU want to type? (I have no idea how many emails I sent out before I realized that the ipod was changing my name from "Jill" to "Kill"

  7. You should be posting from someone else's bathroom.

  8. you know, with this new app you could have posted from ANYWHERE inside or outside your house. yet you chose the's analyze this, shall we?

    bathroom = private time = no kids... so why are you blogging there???

  9. Actually, the powder room is the only warm room in our house. So I don't mind spending extra time in there.

  10. "...the only warm room in the house." Hence, the stinkbugs.

  11. Please keep the stinkbugs out there in the South/East. All this blogging about them is giving me the heebie jeebies!
