Stalls and Walls: Bathroom Blogfest 2010

Stalls and Walls: Bathroom Blogfest 2010
While preparing for Bathroom Blogfest 2010, Bethany Richmond from the Carpet and Rug Institute Blog came across Stalls and Walls.  Her note said "rather amusing, sometimes obscene" [which in its succinctness reminded me of my all-time favorite line "good tea, nice house"].

Stalls and Walls describes itself as "A collection of jokes, philosophy, poetry, political commentary and art found in the bathrooms of the world."

From the About Stalls and Walls Page:

"I have long wondered, when I sit enjoying a meal, reading a book, or drinking a tasty beverage, who amongst us are the people, armed with a pen, a sharpie, a piece of chalk, or a lighter, preparing themselves to make a visit to the restroom, not to simply “use the facilities” but instead to leave something potentially more permanent behind....

Some establishments keep a vigilant eye on their bathrooms and quickly paint over any blemish encountered.  Yet, other establishments let their customers make and leave their mark, creating a running history for all those who visit the restroom.  In either circumstance the messages are perishable, which is why I felt Stalls and Walls would be the perfect place to share and make a record of those deserving notice...."

Unfortunately, I don't notice much activity since June 2010. Nonetheless, there's still plenty there to... appreciate!

Happy Bathroom Blogfest 2010!
