What's In Your Basket?

If you're like most people, you don't go into the bathroom unarmed - with reading material that is.

Our bathroom has an eclectic variety of pottytime periodicals to choose from. Here is what is currently in our "basket" right now:



























Now it's your turn.

What's in your basket?

I'm one of the few who don't read in the bathroom. The less time I spend in that environment, the better.

I have been known to read the back of a shampoo bottle in moments of desperation though...

Sorry. I'm not a bathroom reader. There's not even a basket. Hubby has his own bathroom (I'm not a bathroom sharer either) and he may take stuff to read in there. I try not to notice.

Hi again. Cartoons are collected at www.poop-deck.blogspot.com. I need to update it but most of them are there.

It's okay, Sweetie said...

Hello! I always see the Harmonic Man icon in Suburban Turmoil. Today I had to check ya out.

Our basket has this AWESOME mag called MENTAL FLOSS. Love it. Also the AAA car safety news letter (booooring). Men's Health for my husband. House Beautiful for me. Wish I had internet connection in my bathroom. Too much information??

Hilarious question! Let's see...our basket contains Rolling Stone, Organic Style (now defunct), Mac Addict, Newsweek, and a bunch of magazines I get for belonging to various tree-hugging charities/clubs.

I have NEVER understood reading in the bathroom. If ya gotta go, get in there, get 'er done and get out. If I'm going to sit and read, I'd rather do it somewhere comfortable and better smelling. And what's with people taking phones in the bathroom? Ewwww.

How could you miss a perfectly good opportunity to ask which magazine one poops to best? I'm disappointed.

Handyman. In case you were wondering.

i just take the Washington Post Style section in with me. I rarely make it to the comics. TMI.

Years ago I used to bring Spy into the office. That was a great magazine.

Mom said...

Would you believe my Bible? It's the only place where it's quiet and peaceful!! I don't think God minds!!!

Dad said...

We have a phone in there that is very handy. Sometimes you have to cough to cover the sound effects!

chanakin - Tell me about these moments of desperation. Too much cheese in your diet perhaps?

wendy - Some couples "share" the bathroom - including while they do their business. Ewww.

it's ok - Glad you stopped by! I too love the Lindsay/Lucinda. I didn't bother to mention all the dept store ads and inserts that end up in there either. About once a month we do a flush and start over again. I hate it when you can open up any page in the magazine and it's already been read. Bleh.

jess - More power to the tree huggers! I'm with you.

linda - Ya. Too much potentially embarrassing background noise. WITH ECHO!

mocha - You got to love the Handyman. He'll help you get the job done every time!

yello - You can't take too long - or your legs fall asleep. I hate that.

mom - "Holy crap" is about as religious as I get in there.

dad - In your case I'm not sure a cough is gonna cover it. Just saying.

It's The New Yorker magazine for me! Although I don't usually have the time to do much reading. Without fail, as soon as I sit down, all hell breaks loose somewhere in the house. I have become a "speed" pooper!

I found you via "Suburban Turmoil".

My laptop, too many blogs to read...too little time and no kids' interruption, until the legs numbed up and it's time to get off the throne.

Reading in the bathroom is the only place I can get a few minutes to myself, so I'm all for it. We've got Time, back issues of Weight Watchers magazine (mine), Choice which is the Australian version of Consumer Reports, a book filled with completely useless trivial information and whatever book the Hermit or I am reading at the moment.

Blog-o-licious said...

Oh my the list is long...just from not removing prior reading material. Here goes: Prevention, Scientific American,Vegetable Gardening made easy,Fences-Gates& Trellis,Dania a catalog,NW Hospital med info,Cascadia Community College class schedule,Smith and Hawken catalog. We are so boring, no Dave Barry or anything funny.

We have a world atlas, a guidebook for the tourist town in which we live and, of course, an Uncle John's Bathroom Reader. But I usually take something in with me anyway.

hi, found u via a comment on chanakin's site.

my "basket" contains only one thing: a sudoku puzzlebook. It sometimes gets complemented with a Kakuro puzzlebook.

heehehe :-)
