Odds and Ends

I'm taking a page from EcoGeoFemme's book today, and trying to be productive today, so this one's going to be short.

After a few days of being (somewhat) TP-free, I can safely say that it is WAY less weird and off-putting than you would think. Up until the first time I didn't use toilet paper, I thought that going TP-free was a big mistake. I was sure I wasn't going to last the month. But frankly, now that I've tried it, I don't think I'll go back.

And in honor of January Less Disposable Month, I also started reading "Garbage Land" by Elizabeth Royte. So look for a couple posts about that coming up. And I *might* do a garbage diary for next week, though I haven't fully committed to the time and ickiness that that would take.

What else? Freeze Yer Buns! I had a nice respite from freezing my buns while I was at my uncle's house and my mom's house. But now I'm back, so last night, I tried out the rice sock for the first time. And aside from the fact that I spilled rice all over the counter while filling the sock, it worked just dandy. So thanks, to Mouse for his suggestion.

And now, I better get to my to-do list. Happy Friday!

Crunchy Chicken herself sent me a rice bag (in exchange for some of that Calamondin lime marmalade). It's wonderful to heat and then tuck in the small of my back while reading. I need a rice-filled comforter for the bed.......

Ahh, the rice bag. :) I thought of that but ended up with a hot water bottle which stays warm for 24 hours under the covers - I kid you not! Anyway, all these little warmers that use little electricity are great for freezing the ol' buns, aren't they?
