Well that was AWKWARD!!

I have a little poll that I would like you to all take part in (even though I know that only 2 of you will actually reply), who doesn’t triple check that the door is locked in a public washroom?  I do, in fact it’s something that I am pretty paranoid about.  I hate using public washroom’s – I used to be one of those people who needed someone to turn on the hand dryer or run the faucet to even use one.  

Today, about 15 minutes ago to be exact I entered the lady’s room at work.  The washrooms at my office have full length walls and doors, which I love!  I hate it when women stick their heads under the door to see if it’s occupied, I mean excuse me, the door is LOCKED!  Our locks on our doors make it very easy to see if a particular washroom is occupied or not, they say ‘vacant’ in green when the door is unlocked and ‘occupied’ in red when it’s locked.  I am sure you know where this going.  I entered the washroom and what do my wandering eyes does appear, but a women in white with her rear in the air!  That’s right my loyal readers, I totally walked in on a woman doing her business today.  She must have really weak leg muscles, because in her attempt to squat she was bent in half with her derriere in the air.  I quickly shut the door and called out an apology. 

I expected one of two things to happen next, either she stay hidden in her washroom until I left, or she hurry out before we had to have a face to face encounter.  Nope, not this lady.  She must be super confident with her bathroom skills, she stayed and did her hair and re-applied her lipstick before she left the scene of the crime.  Then she walked out just ahead of me and let the door slam in my face – RUDE!  Rude and awkward, I am not the one in the wrong here.  It’s wasn’t me who forgot to lock the door.

Moving? What about us?

Last night as I turned onto our street I noticed a ‘For Sale’ sign very close to our house.  Turns out our next door neighbours are moving.  This isn’t a complete shock, their daughter lives in Florida or Georgia (can’t remember what one), had a baby a couple of years ago, and they bought a place down there around the same time.  I am happy for them, I hope this means that they are retiring and going to enjoy themselves with their family.  It does however cause me a great deal of stress.  I think that your neighbours should be allowed to interview potential new home owners to see if they are suitable for the street.  I mean, what if they don’t’ really fit in with the rest of the street, or what if they are late night super loud party-ers (we all know how I feel about sleep), or don’t keep up their property and we are stuck right beside them, what if they cook smelly food and leave the windows all open so that’s all you can smell outside??  There are a lot of variables to worry about when faced with the prospect of a new neighbour.  T and CT totally scored when we moved in, I mean we are pretty cool neighbours, R and on his motorcycle and cutting the grass – who wouldn’t want us for neighbours.  In all seriousness, I realize how lucky we were to move in beside T and CT, and we were pretty lucky on the other side with JF and LF who are never home, keep to themselves, maintain their property.  What if weirdo’s move in beside us?  We already have Vampires living behind us.  I am serious, they never open their blinds, never have any windows open or lights on.  On the rare occasion we have seen them outside it’s not sunny out, so we have come to the conclusion that they are vampires.

The only good thing to come out of all of this is stalking their house on mls.ca so we can see what they ‘did with the place’.  Well that and maybe we will score with some super great new neighbours.  Cross your fingers for us.

Documenting is a very important part of any trip or journey.  T, JJ and I documented every significant and non-significant moment of LWWC, and we have some awesome pictures with great stories.  Documenting is the best way to remember all the little details years later.  You don’t need much to document, just a camera and your smile.  R and I have packed up most of our vacation stuff and we are ready to hit the open road tomorrow afternoon, and I have my camera safe and secure in my bag already.  For all my Facebook friends out there, get ready, because I am going to document the hell outta the trip.  I am also a firm believer in posing for your pictures, there is a fine art to proper documentation of one self.  You need just the right head tilt, stick your tongue to the roof of your mouth and point your chin slightly (slighty people) down.  These are the best tips I can offer to avoid looking like you have 3 chins, or no chin at all.  Also, try to hold the camera slightly above eye level so that you don’t get an up the nostril shot.  No one wants to see your bogies. 

Well, have a fabulous long weekend – I know I will.  Happy Labor Day!
