I'm Not Making Risotto With These

So... I'm in London now. I arrived last Wednesday in the wee small hours of the morning, and took the Heathrow Express to Paddington to met up with "My Jerk♥" ('cause meeting up at Heathrow is a headache.) With the exception of some jobs he needed to finish up, we've managed to spend quite a lot of time together, and it has been, in a word, FANTASTIC. I only wish there was internet at the house. I feel I have been seriously slacking in the reading/writing blogs dept. There are quite a few out there that I look forward to reading (if you follow my blog, there is a 99.9% chance I am indeed talking about loving your blog) and have to venture down the road to one of the local cafes to catch up. Not that bad really, but it's just not as nice as being able to curl up under the duvet and surf away.

Though, so far, my favorite thing (outside of "My Jerk♥") has been what he has growing in his bathroom along the base of the shower. He did not plant them, nor did his housemates... but there are mushrooms growing there. I'm not even kidding. Mind you, they are not of the "ha! these are F'n awesome!" variety... they are basically proof that the homeowner needs to do something about the dampness problem in the bathroom.

Everyone knows they should be yanked up, and the area bleached... but it's just so damn gross, yet funny, that no one can bear to do it.

Apparently I'm not your typical "eweee! that's so gross!" female since I find it all totally hysterical.

See for yourself......

Impressively disgusting ain't it? :)

I would like to add here, that for a house with three other men living in it, and no females, it really is remarkably clean, specifically the bathroom.... minus the mushrooms.


  1. I missed you, next time you're going to London please inform us :)
    And this mushroom think it's pretty much eeewwwww, but also hilarious :)

  2. Now THAT is cool. I so want mushrooms for my bathroom. That's my problem. Always trying to keep up with the Joneses.

  3. @Roaring Housewife- ^that^ would be "My Jerk♥", always so thoughtful. Wondering now what customs would think as the package goes through their scanners ;p

    Starlight- thank you! It's nice to be missed, & the next time I travel... I will make sure to let you know :) (& yes, the mushrooms are vile... but damn funny)

  4. awww the mushrooms are officially gone now. The BF's housemate, our Artist in Residence, has scrubbed the bathroom clean (bless him!)... and the mushrooms are off to live their eternity in that big bathroom shower stall in the sky. :)
