Time to share....

This is sort of like a meme, except that no one tagged me and I'm just going to share what I want, when I want.  No pressure.

I'm going to tell you something totally useless about me, and then tell you about something that I learned this week.

Useless "crap":

1.  When I put a new toilet paper roll on, the paper MUST roll out from the top.  Technically, this isn't just when I put one on.  I will change the ones that my family put on wrong (there IS a wrong way to do this, people).  It's also very likely that I will take the time to do it when I'm at your house.  Just so you know.  So if you like it rolling from the bottom, feel free to change it back once I leave.

Stuff to fill your sponge:

1.  Acid, like in pop, (Oh, come on!  What did you think?) makes the enamel on your teeth soft.  No worries.  It will harden again.  HOWEVER, if you brush your teeth before the enamel hardens again, you will brush off a layer of precious enamel from your teeth!  This means if you have binged, and now you're feeling guilty about it and want a fresh, guilt-free mouth, you should wait a little while.  Did you already know that?  Because I just learned it yesterday!

I hope you all enjoyed the tutorial yesterday.
I'm going to have something totally useful and interesting tomorrow!  You just wait and see!

I am with ya on the t.p. thing, it drives me crazy to see it the other way.

I am a diet pepsi addict, so that was really a need to know thing, thanks.

Hey. If you've ever had a child go into the bathroom and bat at the tp roll and leave the whole unrolled roll all over the bathroom floor, then you should know better than to put it on the roller like that. If it rolls out the bottom, and somebody, like a little child, starts batting at it, turning it round and round with child-like abandon, it WON'T UNROLL AT ALL if you put it on the "wrong" way. Ta-da!

Ah, but in the middle of the night, when it's dark and I am peeing in my sleep, I can't find the end of the toilet paper.

Plus, I'm "anal". Pardon the pun. Oh. My. Goodness.

I'm hilarious!

I did not know the acid/enamel thing. I guess it's a good thing I don't drink pop. And, I find it hilarious that you use the word pop for soda. I was raised saying that too and most people look at me like I'm NUTS if I refer to soda that way!

Oooooh, toilet paper. That has to be on with the rolling part away from the wall and closest to the person eliminating. And heaven forbid if I am visiting someone and need to use their restroom and I need to use all my energy to NOT turn the roll around.

I'm the same way about TP

and the acid / enamel thing I just learned recently as well - now I'm kicking myself for all those times I ran to the bathroom to brush my teeth. And I thought I was being good

I'm with you on the toilet paper roll thingy.... and I've also been known to fix the roll at places other than my home - oh yeah - work, my dad's house, even close friends lol ( who I know don't care...) the only downside, is that is so much easier for the kitties to unroll....
