The Joys of Renting 1

Don’t you love renting?
Don’t you love rental properties where the owner lacks basic taste and you can’t do anything about it?

Covering a generous floor space of roughly 0.84M2, with gold-leaf wallpaper, a lovely vomit pink toilet bowl and …wait for it…mirrors on the reverse side of the door, the 1st prize of tacky toilet contest goes to:

This is a top-of-the-range toilet where not only can you admire the wonderful décor, you can also view its reflection, hence twice the satisfaction.

You also have the opportunity to discover facial expressions that you never thought that you were capable of while going about your daily business.

Is this a French thing? Or just a human weakness for bling?

I love our toilet.

Hmmm your toilet sounds terrible.... Perhaps, you could...ummm...well not much choice but to move, stay and put up with it or.... write it up on your blog ;-) oh..... you have ;-)
have you invented names for some of your facial expressions...ala zoolanders 'blue steel'? would love to hear more. I am from Australia and we have a law here about mirrors in toilets...crazy but true fact!!!

Actually....I've come to enjoy the whole toilet experience. The mirrors make me feel less lonely when I'm in there.
