Princess Weekend and other randomness

  • This weekend, this coming Sunday, I'll be 39 years old. I feel every year as I type this post. That aside, I must admit that ITSam is taking is the whole birthday thing pretty seriously. He, all on his own, without any encouragement from me, he's declared it "Princess Weekend." And he's buying me a new tiara. And he said we can do anything I want all weekend long. AND, he said he'll be my "Man Slave." I think I love him. I think he loves me. Damn...
  • What is the etiquette for handicapped bathroom stalls? I know that if there's a baby changing table in it, then it's fair game to anyone, right? Or at least I thought so. But what about other times? I was at the mall the other day and the handicapped stall was empty and there was a line of women waiting but no one went in. And this has happened other times when I've been places. Is this right? Are we not supposed to use the handicapped stall like not using the handicapped parking space? What if the bathroom is just a 2 seater? Do we all just stand there and not go and use only 1? I'm so confused.
  • Mac is getting tons and tons of stuff from colleges all over the country. I've been told that's pretty standard for college bound seniors. But today he got something from Alaska pacific University. He asked me if he went there could AlaskaSam give him residency and that he could adopt him because he would be a better dad than the one he has.... uh, yeah. O-kay.
  • I have a bunch of ring tones on my phone. Mac does tease me a little bit because someone at my age has ring tones but to me it's like have some cell phone organization. Some of my people have ring tones because the song and the person are tied together like ITSam is "True Companion", Patti who lives in Florida has "Margaritaville", my boss that I take pictures for has "Photograph" by Nickleback, XRay Girl and Gulo are "Hey Soul Sister", AlaskaSam is "The Weary Kind", and Daddy-O is "We are family." Some songs I have on my phone because I love the song, love the way it makes me feel and makes me happy. I assigned these to people who I love, the way they make me feel and who make me happy! Lilith has "Glitter in the Air" by Pink, one of my all time favorite songs. Curley has "I Got a Feeling". Now all that being said I went to see the movie Easy A yesterday and the main character Olive gets an audio card from her grandma and the song is "Pocketful of Sunshine." There's an ongoing gag through a part of the film about that song which made me howl with laughter because that's my default ringer song!!!!!

If there is no handicapped person in the rest room, I use it. I don't see any reason not to. The stall is to make it easier for someone wheelchair bound to fit and manuever inside a stall. But I don't believe it is reserved for only the handicapped. I've rarely even seen a handicapped individual in public rest rooms!

I was always told, it's there for them to use, but they have to wait in line like everyone else!

As for the ringtone, OMG!! I love that song!

I consider the handicap stall open to all. its there for the handicap person and as I see it if a handicap person comes in its theirs first..but I could be wrong. I use it if it's open besides more room to move around..

I agree with all, it is for handicapped or elderly because of the handrails. That being said, it they no where in sight, it's fair game and if no one else wants to use it then go for it.

Lillith is right one... It's a stall for everyone to use. Just like anyone can use a wheelchair ramp. And, those who are handicapped have to wait in line with all the other people... The stall does give them immediately access.

On another note... Happy Birthday! It's my birthday weekend too, but I'm not celebrating. I'm actually hoping to sleep through the day. Okay, sleep through the whole weekend.

Happy birthday for Saturday!! And what a way to celebrate it, by being in love. Awesome (even if if it is scary and damn complicated).
