Toilet Seat Covers- a follow up

Oh. My. GOD. It makes me so sad to think about all the time and energy that went into those.


I mean, don't people have better things to do? Like, you know, sleep. And read blogs?

Wow...those are amazing. I accidentally set my room on fire when I was six with a toilet seat cover...they've scared me ever since.


How do you do that? Or maybe I don't want to know. My dad set fire to the chook shed with a candle in a wicker pram when he was little...

When I was little, I was staying at my Grandma's and my cousin who lived there wanted sparklers. I hated sparklers, but we had them anyway. Grandma lit my cousin's first, then mine. One of the sparks got me, and I dropped/threw it away from me - and it landed on my Grandma's foot. She was very nice about it, but I can still see the wretched thing landing on her foot - I can picture her shoes and everything. Needless to say, I am still not a fan of sparklers.

Aieee! Fox Collection! I had no idea they still existed! ...I mean, um, what are you talking about?Man, I should pull out all the heinous and tacky needlepoints and embroideries I have, half finished (or not even that), that I thought were just the coolest when I was 14 years old. I'm pretty sure there's a sad teddy in a lamplit window. Oh the humanity...


You know, some of the stuff they have is actually pretty nice. The trouble is that there is so much dreck to sift through - and it's expensive crap, too. Also, while I quite like some of the things, there is no way I woudl spend hours stitching them, let alone hang them on my walls, let alone pay $100 or more for the privelage.

I used to be an avid cross-stitcher. But oh, the saccharine ickyiness. I realised as I looked at that catalouge the reason that people look at me askance when they find out that I knit and craft...

Maybe toilet seat covers are an acquired taste. I don't know.

I'm with you in wanting to know how that toilet-seat-cover fire started too!!

Just an FYI, you put a blue toilet seat cover over a lamp in your room to make it blue so you can play mermaid, and you forget and go in the other room to play wonder woman.

I've never been keen on them since.
