Frisky Rant: Stop Being So Damn Disgusting In The Company Bathroom, Ladies

frisky-rant-stop-being-disgusting-in-bathrooms

I write this to you in the heat of the moment, still disgusted at what I just witnessed in the company ladies room. IT WAS NOT PRETTY. In fact, after slurping down several tall glasses of Long Island Iced Teas during a barbecue yesterday, I was forced to stop at a seedy, highway rest stop McDonald’s to pee, and I’m sad to report that their women’s restroom was cleaner than the one in my office building. But this isn’t just happening in my building. Gag-worthy workplace bathrooms— particularly ladies’ rooms— have become an epidemic. We can all relate. Keep reading »

“For the first time, there was a traffic jam in the Senate women’s bathroom. There were five of us in there, and there are only two stalls.”

– Senator Amy Klobluchar (D-Minn.) on how the record number of women serving in the Senate (20!) is causing problems in the ladies’ room. Good to know that even lady senators take a long time to pee. May there be many more ladies’ room traffic jams — and a few more stalls, geez, people — in decades to come. [Washington Post]

Man Locks Himself In To Keep Technology Out

How far would you go to break yourself of your internet addiction? If you’re Mark Malkoff, you’ll lock yourself in your bathroom for five days. Malkoff, of New York, NY, thinks he’s way too addicted to his laptop and iPhone, so as of 11:30 a.m. on August 23, he’s locked himself in the loo. But Malkoff isn’t going in without a plan.

Designer Toilet Seat Covers For The Discriminating Toilet Goer

Wishing for world peace? Praying you’ll win the lottery? Perhaps you should settle for another kind of a dream come true: designer toilet seat covers. Yes, Toletta is here, and with the advent of this product, you may never find yourself squatting in high heels over a nasty, dirty public toilet again in your life. Seriously, though, nothing is grosser than a toilet seat in a bar or a club — except for maybe the toilet bowl itself. Who wants to touch that mess with a 10-foot pole, much less your precious posterior? Toletta to the rescue, bathroom dwellers! Five seat covers, available in pink or blue, come in a discreet, purse-sized travel pack and part of the proceeds goes to charity. The cover itself is thicker and bigger than regular seat covers that are thin as all get-out and always slipping off when you’re trying to come in for a landing. Also, they’re biodegradable. Your thighs may not be quite so toned from all those potty squats, but that’s what the gym is for, not the loo. [Marie Claire] Keep reading »

Weekend DIY: Paint Your Very Own Striped Bathroom

There are a few features I dream of having in my future home. The list includes a dishwasher, a washer and dryer, a radiator that doesn’t clank, and a striped bathroom. Because of that last wish, the December issue of Lonny made me drool all over my laptop. The online magazine pictures not one but two striped bathrooms. The first (above) is in the J.Crew Collection store on NYC’s Upper East Side, and the second (after the jump) is one of the bathrooms at Hotel Keppler in Paris.

If you’re lucky enough to be allowed to paint the walls in your home (i.e., you own it or have a cool landlord), you can create your own striped bathroom pretty easily. Friends of mine have added black stripes to their white walls, and they advise deciding on a stripe width and mapping it out in the bathroom to ensure the lines don’t hit the corners or mirror edges awkwardly.
