It’ll come as no surprise to most of you that Dooce’s recent entry on potty training immediately made me think of my niece. She has, over the past few weeks, started down the road of learning to poop in her potty (Charlie, that is, not Dooce/Heather). It is quite early, from what I’ve heard, but the way Anna figures it is that the sooner she gets used to/likes her potty, the sooner she’ll learn to use it properly.
So anyway, I’m visiting my niece last week and she starts to pull her nappy off. I swiftly grab her, plonk her on her training seat which goes over the toilet and wait for the wee-wee. Nothing! Huh. I get ready to lift her down again when she starts pulling off great yards of tissue and shoving them between her legs down into the toilet. I was laughing so hard I forgot to point out that there is a little step between the ripping and the dropping known as “wiping”.
Moving swiftly on before I drive away all of my child-free-and-proud visitors, I’ve been tweaking the site here and there again. Trying to add individual titles and meta descriptions to each page in the hope that one day I will be listed first at Google when searching for ‘Jem’ (my life goals — so sad and geeky). This sounds easy, but in reality I have a couple of hundred pages strewn across various folders and it is an incredibly tedious process. Particularly as writing enticing and exciting descriptions is not my strong point, so please.. feel free to make suggestions for individual pages.
Last but not least (because I decided not to blog about how sick I feel and the green lumpy snot-vomit.. oh wait..) I thought I might share some amusement with you guys, ’cause you all deserve to be ‘in’ on my funnies:
Comments: you CAN take whatever you want on the net, you stupid fuck. wake up.
This being an ‘application’ to join the my own. clique. I really must send an e-mail to the owners of whatiscopyright.org and rightsforartists.com and point out that copyright doesn’t really exist and they’re wasting their time and effort — because some illiterate fool says so. Now, excuse me while I go and get myself an ‘humailll.com’ e-mail account, and steal me some celebrity photos/lovely trademarked characters..
