i had a nice, blathering post all planned out in my head for this morning, about nothing in particular. then i woke up and remembered what day it is. suddenly the trivial seems so much more so today.

so instead, some reflection. tell me, true believers, where were you five years ago today?

me, right around this time i was sitting in my office with the entire staff of my company piled in, watching a live news feed off the bbc. we worked in a medical building at the time, so we couldn’t get any television reception, and all the major us news sites were overloaded. bbc was the first thing i found with a live feed that was actually accessible . no one said a word, except for the vp at the time, and all she could manage was an occasional 'oh my god'. its funny, the details you remember; i can still hear her now.

so where were you?

by the way, thanks misshellionhell for that pic. its like a beautiful donkey kick in the gut. i love it.

Apparently, when you visit the papal residence, you're not allowed to use the pope's bathroom. a special exception was made for the wish-kid that got sent there, and i do believe that makes her the only american ever to see the pope's can. unfortunately, no photography was allowed in the pope's commode, and no one was allowed to escort her in. so the question before us is, what's so special about the pope's bathroom that they don't want us mere mortals to see?

Poll #794846 The Pope's Bidet

So what do YOU think is so special about the Pope's Commode?

Prize will be given to the best answer, when i decide what it is.
