Got a lot of blackberries? Then check out this recipe for Blackberry Mojito Fruit Leather.

I'm not a huge fan of fruit leathers, but this turned out super good! And, really, you can't go wrong with blackberries, mint and rum.

Save water! Pee in the shower

My fellow Crunchy friend has a post today regarding the campaign in Brazil urging citizens to pee in the shower to save water. Since I seem to have a well, some may say obsession, with bodily fluids, this news is right up my alley.

I'm always amazed at how campaigns such as these fly in other countries (urine separation systems in Scandinavia, the Brazil campaign) but are met with squeals of disgust in the U.S. and the originating article describes it as a "bizarre" news clip, whereas people in other countries don't bat at eye about it.

Anyway, go check out her post on the campaign! Do you pee in the shower?

I once heard a joke: what's the definition of a WASP? A guy who gets out of the shower to pee.

I peed in the shower long before it was green! It's convenient! And the water all goes to same place anyway. The things American's are grossed out by...if only people knew how water is (or isn't) treated OR how food gets to the table!

If I'm in the shower and I have to pee...

I totally let it fly.

I usually pee in the shower. I don't have foot fungus. It's a win/win. I wash my undies in the shower too... is that weird? I thought everyone did.

This is too funny! We were just talking about it with my boyfriend. He thought it was strange to do so, but now I can show him this article and say that I'm normal! :)

When I worked at a summer camp during my undergraduate years the male counselors would joke about it all the time and the females would squirm. I never peed in the shower there (out of courtesy) but now I don't see what the big deal is and if I have to go then I go.

Besides, unless you are sick (kidney infection for example) your pee is sterile so it's not going to harm anything. We really do get grossed too easily in this country.

I grew up peeing in the shower. I didn't know there was anyone who didn't do so. Though it does bring to mind the scene in _Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius_ when the parents have all been taken by aliens and the kids are having a grand old time with no rules and Sheen (sp?) proudly proclaims that he is peeing in the shower.

Gee, I don't but I have no objection to it. I just never thought of it. Really funny cartoon, I like the nod to Alfred Hitchcock.

The Mom said...

Hehe. I guess I'm more normal than I thought.

I pee in the shower and I have to remember not to do it when I'm in the communal showers at the swimming pool!

Anyway it also saves a few sheets of toilet tissue too ( if you use it!)

Also peeing on your feet can help combat athlete's foot and bacteria that cause stinky feet.
