We call our bathroom the library because I keep at least one book and several magazine in there.  National geoagraphic is always a good one...lots of pictures for the short stays or articles for the longer stays..LOL

Sometimes I feel like mine should be called the dungeon... I feel like I'm basically chained to the toilet.

I also call it the library. Books, magazines, crossword puzzles, etc. I've even been known to take a knitting project in there if I knew I was going to be there for a while!

This is a typical conversation at our house:

Yelling from downstairs, "Amy, what are you doing?"

Me, "I'm in my office." (aka bathroom)

Yelling from downstairs, "Amy, what are you doing?"
 
Me, "I'm painting." (aka using the bathroom)

That has got to be my favorite rooms in my house cause i spend so much time in there,i have only been in my new house for 3 years now and did my bathroom over twice all ready and my wise crack about putting in a pop corn machine and a hot dog stand is still open for discussion.How ever i do have stereo speakers in the walls from the stereo in the living room so i turn it up and relax light some candles so i don't die from the gas fumes I'm always running to the bathroom so i always got tea in hand the phone just in case and its a bonus cause someone always calls as soon as i sit on the can i also have a wide variety of toilet paper by the toilet of course and cook books that's my thing i guess figuring out what I'm going to make for dinner that evening.I hope your bathrooms are a lovely calm place and that there entertaining to you cause we will spend more time on the can than any were else.

I call mine "sposed" as in "I'm in da sposed".  Used to have a sign that hung in the bath with Sposed written on it...have to find that again now

My husband calls it the stink hole!!!!!

I don't have a name for mine but anytime I need to go I'll announce that I'm going to the bathroom and everyone will say "let me go before you get in there!!!" knowing that it will be uninhabitable for awhile. I installed an exhaust fan in my bathroom powerful enough to fly a Cessna because I love my family.


Crohns 30 years. Ileostomy for 15 years. Symptom free for 14 years until 8 months ago. Now on Remicade, B-12 injections and iron. Feeling much better!

Lol, that's hilarious........ I need to look into that.  A couple of older apartments we lived in had a window but no exhaust, so I had to keep it wide open for a while after.  I think it was more effective than an exhaust.  Sometimes I wish I had an outhouse or a port-a-potty... at least then I wouldn't be the only offender!!

When I was flaring, I called mine "home" because I lived there.

For the past 8 years, I've been doing most of my reading at home.

A trick I learned at work - turn on a cube heater on the floor at the same time as you run the fan or open the window. The heat from the cube heater mixes the air in the room so that the awful heavy stink gets lifted up to the ceiling where it is swept out by the fan/window. Otherwise, it takes ten times as long to get the air clear.

I call mine the "Reading Room." I have done a lot of reading in there. I think my wife would call it something much worse, not sure what. The idea of a fan that could fly a cessna is awesome. I may need to look into that!

May be I should call "Recap Room" - I get ideas and turnarounds about problems pressing me in my online work, and of course, feel sorry that classmates and peers are way ahead in rat race....
