Downtime

Hey there, people of the fine Internet, Tobyjoe and I had a discussion. We’re going away for a while. Soon, we’ll be in a not so secret, remote location without the Internet and we’ve decided to take this site down while we’re away and give it a proper rest. (Goodness knows, I could use it and I’m certain you could, too.) I’m writing this to warn folks before it self-destructs.

Let’s share secrets.

My secret? I don’t always wash my hands after I pee. Now, shake my hand.

  5. When i got to the gym today i was like “ew gross! you told everyone you don’t wash your hands!”

    Most of the time I do wash my hands. It’s true. And it’s only when peeing that I don’t if I don’t. And when I don’t it’s usually because a). I don’t pee on them, b). I’m at a bar and the sink and its water seem grosser than a sheet of toilet paper, or c). I’m at home. It’s the middle of the night and I’m bloody tired.

    That’s all.

    Kim, we are heading to Rhode Island. We’ll be in a town where there is almost nothing but water, trees, and some of the best corn on the cob in the world. I may never, ever come back.

  9. I keep hearing how R.I. is so nice to get away to! Susan and Josh went on their honeymoon. It’s perhaps the place new yorkers go to get away from themselves.

    Welcome to sabbatical-land. It’s a good place with better food and more sex than the internet. Life seems to have become richer when i’m not doing so worried about what parts i can/want to talk about online. I’ve had “posting” withdrawal, anger and concern from people (the anger actually amused me – so you’re nice for giving people more warning). Aside from not being able to tell the world about glitter you can put on your horse, it feels mighty fine.

    Not reading the blogs is also a fabulous, excellent thing to do for yourself. Good for you bebe, xo

  10. My secret is, if I can’t cut it off the cob I won’‘t eat it. Corn, that is. [there’s nothing dirty there, don’t even try]

    enjoy your vacation and your break, hope I get to see you saturday.

  12. I know. I’ve been called all sorts of names for it to the point if I’m not around close friends or family I just pretend I don’t like corn.

  14. when i had braces, the only way to eat fresh corn was to cut it off the cob. they make special kitchen utensils that do the trick. but it was sad :(
    secret: i don’t brush my teeth at night, no matter how it grosses out my husband. he married a lazy,unhygienic girl.

  15. gina, up until I got a big ol’ lecture from my dentist about how perfect my teeth are and how lame I am for not flossing, i didn’t either. Now, I not only brush at night but I floss as well. I also brush during the day at work.

    But before he made me feel bad, i was so lazy.

  17. After a horrible experience with an inept butcher of a dentist, I hadn’t been to one in 20 years. Yesterday I spent three hours in a dentist’s chair paying my penance for so many years of avoidance. And I have to go back for more …

    I was led back to the chair by a painful cavity in a molar—a filling had fallen out and a rugby tackle in practice had chipped it, and decay had advanced to a point that required attention. It had hurt so much monday night after a softball game that I couldn’t drink beer with my team. Something had to be done!

    I’ll need a root canal and crown for the bad tooth, and I have two small cavities that require filling. But my gums were good and I tolerated the extensive scaling treatment that I had to endure. The before and after pictures of the tartar on my front teeth were unbelievable. I’m going to floss regularly now, and use mouthwash to kill the bacteria that cause plaque and tartar. Fortunately I have dental coverage through my employer. That will pick up more than half of the cost of the work I have to have done. I’m also going to start brushing and using mouthwash after lunch at work.

    I’ll miss you guys while your gone. Have a great trip!

  20. Have a good trip!

    If anyone ever wants to swap dentist stories.. let me just say no insurance- broke teeth in January and since I am going to the dental school- the cosmetic replacement still hasn’t been done. I have caps, new roots and the continuing cavity work has made me good friends and an advocate for the NYU Dentist School.
