Bathroom talk

Wednesday, June 22nd, 2005

Down in the mead-ow in a lit-tle bit-ty pool,
Swam five lit-tle fish-ies and a ma-ma fish-ie too,
“Swim” said the ma-ma fish-ie, “Swim if you can,”
And they swam and they swam all o-ver the dam.

Boop boop dit-tem dat-tem what-tem Chue!
Boop boop dit-tem dat-tem what-tem Chue!
Boop boop dit-tem dat-tem what-tem Chue!
And dey fam and dey fam all o-ver de dam.

I have been singing this song today because I decided it was time to have some fiber fun. So I made these tropical fish. Right now they are sort of glued together and waterless on my design wall.

Why am I making fish and what does it have to do with bathrooms, you ask? Well, remember a while ago I mentioned that we were having a new tile floor put in our master bathroom and it also got a paint job. Here is the beautiful new tile:

Here is the art work we currently have hanging in the bathroom:

You can see that I have plenty of breasts gracing the bathroom so that Steve and I aren’t totally boobless!! You can also see the color that we painted the room – turquoise. It is a very Miami, tropical sort of turquoise so I have decided to add some tropical fiber art. The fish are going to go over the window which is behind the jacuzzi tub. And a flamingo is going on another wall.

Day 17 of Twenty Days of Virtue I am almost at the finish line. My biggest problem is drinking enough water most days. I think I am going to stick to the virtuous life on Monday thru Friday and slack off on the week-end. I’m feeling so much better and not feeling like I have to stuff myself in my jeans. I made the best salad tonight. It is fresh corn cut from the cob after steaming for a couple of minutes (four ears), two mangoes diced, 1 pound of jicama, peeled and diced, 1/4 cup of chopped cilantro, 1/2 cup chopped red onion, 1/4 cup fresh lime juice, salt and pepper to taste. Served chilled.
