Redrum! RedRUM!

Happy Inconsequential-Statement-of-Preference Monday:

You know what I like? Painting. Not pictures. Walls. (And I'm not alone in this—I know you're out there.) I'm currently painting our downstairs bathroom red. It had (quite recently) been painted a pale lavender, but it somehow wound up feeling like a douche commercial from the Seventies.* So we're changing it to red. The red is much better.

* You don't really see douche commercials on TV anymore. When did that happen? And were they actually all purple-hues, beaches, and sunsets? That's the way I remember them.

    I think they quit airing douche commercials on network TV after SNL did the "Massengill Egg Cream flavor" parody.

    And if you're just dying to see them, try Lifetime.

    I hear you, friend (about the painting, that is - not so much the douche). I'm repainting the entire flat, every room a different set of colours, plus the baseboards, the radiators, the closet doors, and the mouldings... oooh, I absolutely love my mouldings.

    I've been afraid to comment...but, in all seriousness, I think they quit airing the ads as it came to light that routine douching is bad for one's health - now the accepted medical opinion.

    If you want to see something crazy, google "lysol douche ad."

    The vagina is a self-cleaning machine! And I also love to paint walls.

    It's a self-cleaning machine
