what i saw in the men’s room

What I want to know is, why does the flu poster in the men’s room have a healthy, attractive man in daytime clothes on it (and few words), while the one in the women’s room has a frumpy woman in her bathrobe and fuzzy slippers, with curlers in her hair, and holding a roll of toilet tissue to her face (and a whole lot of text)?

Just for full disclosure, we work in a small office. The bathrooms are “single” users, and there are more women in our office than men (though the addition of a couple guys to our floor in different programs evens it out a bit). People will frequently use “the other” bathroom if their preferred is in use.

I found all the Maine CDC flu posters and put the one of the guy holding the urinal in the men’s bathroom… even though there is no urinal in there.

project 365

I’m not sure I’ll keep this up, but I started with project 365, take at least a photo a day. I don’t think I’ll be able to blog once a day, that’s for sure.

Anyhow, so far:
Jan 1, the lichen dye extraction experiment began,

Jan 2, I have had a cold since the blizzard on Dec 27…
This nasty stuff helped me sleep a couple nights. I watched a lot of netflix, and missed work all last week.

Jan 3, the body to a top down lopi sweater for DH is done,

He likes his sweaters loose, and they end up so big (~50 x 28 inches), so it’s good this one is moving quickly.

Jan 4, Gracie loves her blankie…

Jan 5, mom sent me this oddity (she says it’s a hair band, but I don’t really have much hair). Earrings too…

    I want to work with you! Bathroom talk, crazy hair equipment, etc. Sounds like fun.
    Hope you’re feeling better.
    Are you going to SPA this year? I’m staying overnight for the first year ever!

    Pretty cool hat/hair thingy. Looks like something from a speak-easy from the 1920′s. It is definitely you! Yes, Grace looks quite content with that blankie. Keep up the journal. You can do it! :)

    Ooh, I like the urinal one. I may have to print that one.
    My theory on why they were posted like that? Guys think they’re invincible to that stuff & women may overdo things & try to work even if they’re sick. Dunno.

    Kmkat was right – that hair band does ROCK! It will also keep your ears warm OR you could wrap it around your wrist for a fancy bracelet OR you could stretch it to wrap around a computer screen or lamp or something. IT’S FUN! You are NOT a dull woman – neither is your mother who loves you exceedingly, excessivly and without exception, VERY MUCH. HAVE A FUN DAY!!!! Lots of hugs & love, Mom

    I adore Gracie’s “blankie” picture. What “nasty stuff” were you taking for your cold? Love, Mom

    How did the hairband go over at work?! :D

    I hope you are feeling loads better. And I am puzzled about the signs, too – any idea who put them up originally?

    LOVE the hair band but don’t wear it in the woods during small game season!
    My 365 pictures all look the same. SNOW. Good to see Maine has diversity! Keep it up!
