    I usually have two or three books I'm reading at one time or another, so I'll take one in if I estimate I shall be using the facilities for an extended period of time.

    I was walking into MY OWN bathroom and she was sitting up in the bed watching Project Runway.
    I happened to turn back and pick up a book I had been reading this week, Everitt's biography of Augustus, and then I go back and my gf is like "EWWWW" and I'm like ":confused: wat?"
    Then she's like "babe, it's disgusting to read in the bathroom, it's a place of bad energy"
    and I was like "so why can't I read something intellectually stimulating to create a good karmic bubble to shield myself from the bad energy?".
    but still, she's all like "babe it's disgusting and haram (arabic word for bad)".

    So I'm like fuck it and I still walk in, and right when I'm about to sit down, she walks in, grabs the book and says "no". :dunno:

    I of course had a few choice words but the call of nature had arrived by then.

    This is really annoying me cuz I love to read and I can't stand when someone gets in the way of my pursuit of knowledge. It's like telling me I can't breathe.

    It's not like I wanted to read some retarded Maxim or Playboy on the john. :ugh:

    Solutions?

    :bowrofl: Sorry, all I can think about is the book in the bathroom episode of Seinfeld.

    I don't personally see anything weird at all :dunno: Maybe it's not the book reading, but more the you sitting on a toilet bowl long enough to read a book thing that bugs her :mamoru:

    Have you asked her to explicitly explain why she dislikes it besides accepting "it's gross!"

    :rofl: "it's bad energy" :rofl:

    I can't begin to tell you how much of the newspaper I've gotten through while taking a power dump and I'm a girl :bigthumb:

    What is it with these new age girls? Ask her why she thinks reading in the loo is bad energy. Is it bad energy while she takes a bath with "bath bombs" from Lush or something like that?

    I would have dumped her immediately.

    Taking a shit is not magic, its getting rid of waste. If taking a shit is "bad energy," everywhere is "bad energy"

    1.) Awesome AV
    2.) Awesome that you're a female who uses the term power dump
    3.) Something about the bad energy comment reminded me of Daniel Tosh's stand up.

    "I'm not religious, but I'm spiritual."

    "I'm not honest, but you're interesting." :rofl:

    Not to mention it's something EVERYONE does.

    We all shit, we all fart, we all belch and we all puke.

    Every. Single. One. Of. Us. What makes her any different?

    Reading in the bathroom is FTW.

    Once you have a baby you loose a lot of the ick factor with shit.

    I mean, you have to clean that stuff up 3 times a day (at least!). And at times it will be the worst mess you can imagine.

    My daughter is nearly two years old and I think nothing of it now.

    I dont think shit is disgusting at all. I wouldn't eat it because there are bacteria in my large intestine my stomach and esophagus cant handle. But its basically just cellulose and waste materials and some nutrients your body couldn't get out in time. I've been covered in shit, I've played with shit, I've made sculptures out of shit, and next to an orgasm there's no better 100% natural feeling than taking a good dump.

    OP, you should tell her the salad she's eating is bad energy because the plants are a remanifestation of shit.

    Hell fucking yeah bro, the only place I go through more pages in a set amount of time is on an airplane.

    Something about reading in the bathroom is just conducive to hyper concentration. Read fast + retain it.

    :rofl::ugh: I don't think I can use these points bro.

    But ya, I'm in agreement about how irrational her prohibition is on me reading in the bathroom. :sad2:

    In the end, you'll likely wish you dumped her sooner. Do it now.

    haha...I was in this one house that had a fucking phone the bathroom. This was back before cell phones and they had the damn thing wired into the bathroom. This wasn't close to the tub, it was in a separate shitter room.

    i think it's gross if people keep reading material in the bathroom (where it's visible) like a magazine rack or something :o

    i never read in there, i don't really understand why people do, but as long as it's hidden i don't really care.
