Christian Women Online: I’m a guest columnist at Christian Women Online magazine this week! My testimony is up under “Guest Column: New Beginnings.”

It was fun to write for CWO. I enjoy doing their “In Other Words” meme on Tuesdays. Also, many of my online friends are through CWO.


Toilet seats. That’s to warn you that this really is TMI.

It’s rather chilly here in Northern California. I actually prefer the cold over the heat—with cold, you can slap on more layers, while when you’re baking, you can’t do much more than go nekkid.

The cold temperatures wouldn’t be so bad if our house had proper double-sided windows to help keep out the chill (the previous owner installed substandard windows before we bought it). As a result, the outer rooms of the house get a bit brisk.

Both bathrooms are outer rooms.

I drink lots of water.

I also drink lots of caffeine—hot tea, to keep me warm.

I have promised myself that if my book ever gets on the best-seller list, I am going to buy one of those toilets with heated seats.

It doesn’t even have to be one of those Japanese bidet toilets. I just want to be able to relieve myself without freezing my netherparts off.

Until then, any suggestions besides turning up the heat?


  1. LOL! Ask someone to sit on the seat before you do.

  2. Cami--those padded toilet seats--you know, the vinyl ones that stick to your legs when you stand up?--don't get as cold as the regular hard ones do (my grandmother has those on every throne in her house). My toilet is just under the window in a bathroom without an ac/heat vent, and on those cold Tennessee mornings... let's just say I can completely sympathize with you.

  3. Camy, I enjoyed reading your testimony! Let's hope God uses it to encourage others in similar situations!

  4. You could just squat!
