The Crazy Suburban Mom: When my new floor is in I'm going to flush some burgers...

When my new floor is in I'm going to flush some burgers...

Picked out the new tile last night and it's quite a bit different, first off it's porcelain not stone.  Second it's really large and foot square tiles look even bigger in a small bathroom.  Third, now that I'm looking at it,  the online picture's anemic.

Good thing I took home a tile (Thank you, Gina!) because I can really tell what's what with it laying on the floor.

The colors are similar but I don't know if my planned color scheme  will work when all is said and done. I think retro aqua and dusty acid green are dead....  But I like the tile and I think it will go with the warm gray paint.  The accent colors are a casualty I guess; I'm thankful I didn't buy towels.

Also -  I originally kept the white tile wall border because it's around the tub too and the floor was going to be pretty white but I will have to change them now (I'm not changing the ones around the tub because it's just too much and the top of my head might explode as it is.  Do you think it will look bad if I have some white tiles left?) but I'm sure changing the border isn't going to be an issue. 

I think I only need forty or so tiles and there is a big difference in the price of the new floor tiles (the new ones are a tenth the cost, I think) and labor (the new ones are less to install)...

And those differences should cover cost of the forty seven tiles and leave enough  for this baby.

That is the American Standard Champion 4 Toilet and here's a video of it flushing burgers...

Not that I routinely flush burgers - Oh! There is another video at the website of someone flushing chicken nuggets - It's poetry, I tell ya.  It'll bring a tear to your eye -  I just want to know I can without needing a plunger or hearing this...

'nuff said.

Also, flushing sliders cuts out the middle-man, don't it?

That has got to be the most bizarre sound I have ever heard from a toilet.....
