Sit or Squat

We've all been out and had to go to the bathroom urgently.
It's a fact of life, and it happens.

The worst feeling is needing to go...and not being able to find a toilet.

I've rushed into fast food restaurants...Starbucks...gas stations...

Once, when I was around 13 or so, my family took a trip to Italy.
And we took a tour of Pompeii.

Please tell me you have heard of Pompeii?

It's a ruined and partially-buried Italian town, from a volcanic eruption
of Mount Vesuvius in 79 A.D.

It's an amazing place to visit.
The history there is incredible.

But, mid-tour, my mom, my sister, and I all needed to pee.


In the middle of an ancient-volcanically preserved historic town.

I'm ashamed to admit it...but we did it.

We found a spot to...squat.

Does anyone know the Italian statute of limitations on a crime like that?

Could I be arrested next time I end up in Italy?

Can my own blog be used against me in a court of law?!!

Anyway, I recently found out, from the same above-mentioned sister,
that there is an iPhone/iPod app that is called...

Sit 0r Squat.

And it's a free app to help you find a toilet while you are...anywhere.

What a brilliant idea!!!

Do you have any good app ideas to create your own? Do you own any good apps you want to share?

Sit or Squat? Neither.

Unless you have to take a crap...then you're on your own.


You can thank me later, lol.

And yes I do have one.

That is a great idea!
Wonder if I can find that on a Blackberry.
Maybe I need to get an iPhone.

Hey, you've just added to the history of Pompeii, right? And that's a brilliant damn app! If only I had an iphone!

Justine :o )

I have heard of another app...about when it's a good time to leave a movie in the theater so you can pee. It will also tell you what you have missed. Or maybe it's a website :-) Anyway...rather brilliant.

And of course I've heard of Pompeii. Have you read the book (Pompeii) by Robert Harris? It's REALLY good...

I so need that.

I am the queen of "urgency".

Looking forward to seeing you!

I hope to visit there next summer. I'll make sure to watch the water intake!

Just think of how confused the future archaeologists will be when they excavate the "pee" strata - LOL :)
