What if you spent every day looking for One Beautiful Thing?

Etsomnia™ 125: Indisposed

4 Comments

Et·som·ni·a (/etˈsämnēə/), noun, 1. a sleep disorder caused by obsessive Etsy browsing. 2. The surprising arrival of weird handmade merchandise ordered when one is only half conscious. (True story.) 3. An excuse for me to be an obnoxious, snarky New Yorker once per week.

We’re spending this episode . . . in the bathroom. Unable to sleep one night, I started to hunt around Etsy for a shower curtain for our new apartment. Of course, I came across some real dooziees, which made me expand my search, and, four hours later I had a pretty weird list (and a terrible time getting up the next morning). There was the predictable Etsy drek and stuff no one needs like bar soap covers (eew) and tissue dispensers and “upcycled” junk. There was, of course, bathroom humor, but there were surprises, too, like deep truths and clever things and beautiful surprises and other magnificent finds!

While a cute idea, I suspect this shower head is what happens when you leave a talented 12-year-old alone with a 3D printer.

Divorce him immediately.

If you give this to your beloved on your 1st anniversary, you probably won’t have to worry about a 2nd anniversary gift.

Terrifying "children's" toothbrush holders. This is how bad dental hygiene gets started.

Rude.

Who wants to be judged by their toilet paper holder?

These are toilet targets. They make me very glad I had girls.

These are toilet targets for little boys. “Try to get it right in Mickey’s eye, honey!” They make me extra glad I had girls.

If it can't be cleaned with scrubbing bubbles, it does not belong on the toilet. The end.

Beyond unsanitary. If it can’t be cleaned with scrubbing bubbles, it does not belong on the toilet.

While I hate trying to clean under vessel sinks, I think I'd be willing to make an exception for this gorgeous thing. By BrockMadisonGlass

I'm assuming they mean in a trashed hotel room while doing blow off a hooker's backside.

  1. Oh the sights you have had to endure to bring us these weekly doses of mirth. Thank you for your sacrifice. I must admit that the matchbox books made me chortle. That glass sink is stunning but you make a valid point about the cleaning of such things. I might just buy my Star Wars nut husband that soap dispenser but if he ever bought me anniversary toilet roll I would bludgeon him over the head with the industrial toilet paper holder.

  2. Because Etsy is the understatement of the decade. Non sequitur time: 3D printers get a fair bit of real estate on this blog!!
