Random Thoughts

I've had a lot of Random Thoughts lately and here are some more. 

It's 90 here today.  I heard from one of my Michigan daughters that it is supposed to be 90 there too.  That's crazy for them this early.  Summertime brings memories of  past events and looking forward to new ones.  This song, for some reason feels like summer to me.

Dobie Gray died December 6, 2011.  How did I miss that?    His 1973  hit "Drift Away" is one of my all time favorites.  I do like Detroit's  Uncle Kracker 2004 version, but my heart is with Dobie on this one.


I tried to find what month it came out, but all I could find were charts of the hits of 1973.  To me, it feels like the dog days of summer.

How about the case on the news now of the New Jersey tanarexic Mom taking her daughter into a tanning booth, where she sustained burns. 


This photo was a booking shot, (I don't know why) taken April 4th.  This is just now May.... how do you get that dark in a month?  I used to go to the tanner.   I do not know how you can get that dark that fast.  I didn't know you could get that dark period. Plus, do you have to take your teeth out for a mug shot?  Serious question.  I don't know.... There is so much wrong here.
 In my humble opinion.



Now, a question I have had great discussions about, at different places I've worked.  So, now I'll ask you.


  Can you and your husband/wife/significant other..... share the bathroom at the same time?

Personally, we do not.  There have been times when the home we have lived in,  or the hotel we have stayed in, only has one bathroom.  He will not come pee in there when I am putting on makeup, etc, and I will not join him if he is in there.  I had a girlfriend that would sit on the edge of the tub while her husband was sitting on the toilet and carry on a conversation.  Seriously.  No......I don't care that he was there while I was birthing the children....no...... some things you do not need to share.

I have learned we are in the minority.  Most couples to share bathroom time.

Love Drift Away!
Wow. Shouldn't someone clue that woman in on the line that she's obviously crossed. That just doesn't look normal. And I won't even go into that she may have tried to start her little girl down that path...
If you're in the minority (as far as sharing the bathroom) then we're there with you. I may talk to my husband when he's peeing, but that's it. There are some things that I just don't want to share...

We are in the minority with you too..although I have been known to go in there to pee when he is in the shower..but there is a wall between the stool and the shower!
That tanning lady looks 80 years old..she has some loose screws..or maybe no screws at all:(

We both have free-roaming bathroom privileges - don't know the meaning of the word "privacy", though I am waaaay more private than he is...my opinion - tanning booths should be against the law since they have proven to be extremely dangerous.

So many great songs from that era. I didn't know Dobie Gray died either...
That mother! Oh my gosh. How is it possible to be that dark? And that poor child. I used to tan in the booths when I was young and stupid... NEVER even came close to that darkness.

I have no problem being in the bathroom at the same time in most cases. I like my "quality time" (if you know what I mean) alone, though. Some things and smells just don't need to be shared!

gigihawaii said...

yes we do in the master bathroom. toilet room is separated from sink area by a door. wecan still converse.

The tanarexic woman definitely has a problem! Actually, I think she may have several problems!!!

As for sharing the bathroom, we only have one. Ed and I have shared, on occasion, but it's not a regular happening at our house.

You asked if I shagged. Ha Ha I wish! I never have been able to dance worth a flip, but I love to watch :)

The tan mom makes me really upset, just to look at her is painful. So sorry about Dobie Gray, I did not know this, total bummer. As for the bathroom, I'm single!

Gran said...

p.s., cool random thoughts.

Intense Guy said...

Dumb people should be against the law. :) Not that anyone would enforce that!

I live alone - so no thoughts on sharing the bathroom - I don't even bother to close the door anymore.

Thank you for taking the time to write on this topic.

Simone said...

Hahaha Just as I'm reading this DH is peeing with the door open. I am more private though and like to close the door.

Suldog said...

Nope, most definitely do not share the bathroom when one of us is using the toilet. Why in hell would either of us want to? You mean to say that whatever you have to say to each other won't keep for one or two minutes? Wow! You folks lead way more hurried lives than we do. God bless you!

You are not alone in not wanting to share the bathroom. In fact, we have his/hers bathrooms ... my bathroom is the master bath, his bathroom is the hall bath. I don't use his, and he doesn't use mine.

I don't know what's up with blogger, but this morning, your last 4 posts finally showed up in my Google Reader. Just wanted to explain why I'm posting now 18 days after you posted this.
