The best laid plans of mine and men often go awry...
I had all these big plans to celebrate my decade of blogging...all these cool things I was gonna do leading up to this huge event. I mean, how many blogs do you read reach this milestone? But life got in the way, and all the great stuff I wanted to do has fallen by the wayside. Oh well. Maybe it's appropriate that my blogging took a huge nosedive during my 10th blogiversary, actually. I had been on quite a roll the last few years, and perhaps I needed a reminder of just how fragile the blogging-thing can be. Life has been rough since about June for me. Things are up and down. Some days, I feel like things are great, and then something happens that makes me think that things aren't as progressing as I had hoped. The good news is, right now at this very moment, things are feeling better. With the heaps of stress on my shoulders, I've sought help from a professional just to talk things out. Therapy = lighter load So to celebrate my ten years of laboring here in my little corner of the blogosphere, I'd like to revert to my old format of sharing goofy science stories with you this entire month. I want to start with sharing my VERY first post with you. Thank you so much to all of you who still come back to read my posts. I appreciate it. I also hope some of my old blog buddies stop by to say "hello." This will be a month of nostalgia for me, and on a personal level, I also hope it'll be a time of healing so I can get back to writing and blogging again. Without further ado, here's the post that started it all way back on August 3rd, 2005.
When You Gotta Go on the Go
Have you ever been stuck in traffic and you're just not able to hold it any longer? Nature calls, and you can postpone the inevitable for only so long. What about those with medical conditions that complicate things? Or maybe that chimichanga you had at lunch isn't agreeing with you while you're in the car. What's a person to do?
It allows you to do your business in the privacy of your own car. This British invention is an actual in-car toilet. What about prying eyes while you engage in one of life's most private moments?
The Indipod comes with this built in inflatable privacy bubble to cover all the windows and such...and it creates a more relaxed and comfortable environment. Plus, I'm sure the bubble protects those outside your car from any malicious odors. Even those foolish to remain in your car while you take care of business are safe...as the bubble completely surrounds you and the air fan masks any embarassing noises you should be making.
How much can this Indipod hold? It has an 8 person-days capacity. In other words....it can hold 8 days' worth from one person or one day's glorius medley from you and 7 of your best buddies.
Leave it to the British to invent a sophisticated product like the Indipod...
I guess the American version, the Bumper Dumper, has some pretty heated competition.
Blogging since 2005.
Medical sales warrior by day, writing ninja by night...
