Wow, I really haven't posted very much this month. Sorry! I've been sick and have fallen behind on work and school. While I get myself back on track, I thought I'd post this picture I took of my toothbrush and the holder in my bathroom. You know how toothbrushes with gigantic handles have rendered these old-fashioned holders useless? My friend Anna Jane Grossman, a journalist and author, has a new book out on obsolescence, so I sent her this photo for her entertaining blog. Check it out, and submit your own photos of obsolete stuff.
I love this toothbrush, though! Isn't it cool? It's by the Swiss company Swissco, and it only cost $3.99. It matches the tiles on the floor. Unfortunately, it's become pure decoration in this holder: The natural bristles taste like hair and fall out, and--what I didn't tell Anna Jane--it got stuck in the holder and I have to tap the bottom with a hammer to get the damn thing out. It's easier to let it stay permanently stuck in the permanently affixed holder. If Anna Jane follows up this book with the idea of permanence, I have a submission!
P.S. Isn't rubber ducky adorable? It glows in the dark.
