The Belle of the Ball…

I just took this quiz, which I found on happylittlegirl’s blog: Which Disney Girl are You? Turns out that I am Belle of Beauty and the Beast. I think it’s quite fitting, actually. I am very independent and practically live in my head with my own thoughts. Although, I really don’t identify greatly with the part about speaking your mind. That is definitely a trait I have repressed, especially since entering college. I need to embrace that part of myself. I know it is there because I have used it when I feel very strongly about something, but otherwise, I have just been too afraid to tap into it. That stops now.

You scored as a Belle
Dancing furniture, singing spoons, and a man who needs a serious haircut – sound familiar? Well it should! Belle was a very independent spirit with alot on her mind, much like you are! But in life, there is a needed balance – learn when to speak your mind, and when to hold it back. Sometimes offending someone isn’t the best way to go!

Why?!

That is all I can think to ask when I contemplate this image:

Do you get it? Because I don\'t

This was what greeted me when I walked into the unisex, and only, bathroom at work, and it makes absolutely no sense to me. Gents, will you please explain to me how it could be so difficult to flush the toilet? You already have the advantage of being able to stand up while you pee, bypassing the annoying everyday inconvenience of pulling down the pants or hiking up the (layered) skirt of which I am so fond. You’re relieved from struggling to 1) achieve and 2) maintain the careful balance of squatting your lower half over the toilet while keeping the material of your skirt or pants from touching the toilet bowl rim (eeeeeeww!!). Then, tack on the skill of maintaining all of the above while trying to score some toilet paper to finish the deal. I’m willing to forgive a woman if she forgets to flush now and again. But men… come on! Sexist? Sure… but true.
