Many of you have asked where in the world I've been.

All I know is that after 7 plus years of blogging and a different lappy, which I don’t like, I seem to have lost my blogging fervor.

Someday, when you least expect it, I will post again.

For those of you still waiting I say thank you.

Meanwhile, I am rather prolific on twitter. Find me: @KeethaB

This is How We Roll & Reprise

(First posted on July 8 & 9 2008)

Keetha over at Write Kudzu is discussing one of the burning questions of life: "How do we roll?" She's even taking a poll of sorts.

I could give you all the scientific explanations (direction of force, using gravity, and overcoming entropy) as to WHY there is only one RIGHT way to roll - - - - but I won't.

They say a picture is worth a thousand words, so - - -


This is how we roll, baby!!! The RIGHT way.

How do you roll?


Next Day:


I used the comments from yesterday's post to do a very in depth statistical analysis of the over/under question. Here are the results:

77% are Over the Top Types
23% are Right

Next I googled the question and found that a far more professional poll than mine using many more people came up with nearly the exact same results.

What does this prove? Simply that those of us who roll the RIGHT way have our work cut out for us in converting the rest of you.

Oh and maybe that there are a lot more people than just those of us who came to this blog who have ALSO wasted their time grappling with this IMPORTANT life question.

Theresa said...

Jojo said...

Yes, from top to bottom - a very important question!!!

Terra said...

Over the top, so I guess I'm wrong. LOL

Donna@Conghaile Cottage said...

We couldn't make that Pretty little arrow fold if it Weren't over the top!!! Yes, and every Grand Hotel is OVER THE TOP TOO with their pretty little folds! I use the stand up bronze holders that sit on the floor AND Over the top is "The ONLY WAY"!!! hehe... We're outnumbering you here, does this mean when you visit us you are going to be "FLIPPING or rolls in the powderooms,etc"???
Warm Winter Hugs to you,
Donna

How delighted I am to weigh in on this burning question. I roll the right way, Keepie!

I had a friend whose mother kept changing the roll from whichever way the husband preferred. It was war in the BR the whole time she visited. Isn't that a stitch?

mrsmomma said...

This life changing question caused my parents very first argument as a married couple...I won't tell you which one of them was right and which was over the top. But I will say our poor little toilet paper barely ever gets on the roll anymore.

I like over the top so I can make it look cute with that point like hotels do. BTW, I saw a report a few days ago that to conserve, toilet paper rolls are now narrower. I noticed that they do slide back and forth across when the were wider and fit better. Much like cans going from 12 oz. to 10.

Hey Girlfriend...

What a fun post! Hehe! I'm a "die-hard" over the top person myself! It's just so funny...of course I had to read everyone's comments. Hmmm...does look like the over the top people have it, my dear! Ohh...and I agree with Donna...it has to be over the top to make the fancy hotel folds! wink!

What fun! So glad that you shared this with us today for the Sunday Favorites repost party...you're a hoot, dear friend!

Love ya,
Chari

I roll just like the picture
I know how to roll

Anitra Cameron said...

You are just funny! We've got the roll going Over the top, so we don't have to wrestle the wall for the end of the paper. You have obviously got a more submissive wall, lol.

Angie said...

CHUCKLE-WORTHY RE-RUN!! I don't care which way the roll is but maybe I could start an opinion poll in the bathroom in case my slap-dash attitude offends anybody. Or maybe a sign inviting 'sitters' to feel free to do what the heck they like with the roll. Maybe the sign could even be a piece of embroidery that everyone can have a go at in their idlest moments.

Laura @ the shorehouse. said...

I'm always over the top...my mom would agree, lol! ("Laura, you are just over the top!")

:-)

Kristin - The Goat said...

Looks like I do it the right way! It's the only way in my book LOL

Nezzy said...

I'm an over the top kinda gal...in more ways than one! Heeehehehe!!!

Guess I'm 'wrong' but that's how I roll!!! :o)

God bless ya and have a beautiful day a'rockin' and rollin' there!

Lady Jane said...

I am an over the top!!! You cant convert me, I grew up where you had to conserve and this was a way so you didnt accidently take too much... Now who is right and who is wrong, lol...

Cortney said...

We actually don't have a TP roll holder but we o have quite the debate going on in the house. I put the roll on a shelf in front of the thrown while my husband insists on putting it on the back of the toilet. And the debate continues....

65 Roses for Marcia said...

I'm totally an over the top person! My hubby's always puts it on the "right" way and I have to fix it.
