When I'm @ someones house: the one farthest away from the crowd
@ the Mall: Macy's (as public bathrooms go this one is very nice)
If I can't make it to Macy's...JC Penney's will have to do (they recently remodeled so it is better than it was. I don't know why they didn't ask for my input???)
Monterey Bay Fish Grotto in Monroeville has a great bathroom

My beautiful niece Kassandra and my beautiful (big:) sister Carol started the team “Steppin’ Out For Catherine Sarah” for the 2010 Take Steps, Be Heard For Crohn’s and Colitis Pittsburgh, PA Walk on June 13th 2010 in Schenley Park. The goal was to raise money and awareness for a cure for me (Crohns) and my beautiful niece Sarah (Colitis) and the million plus American adults and children who are affected by these diseases. I hope we can all walk again next year
Signs you are a crohnie: You're the only person you know that wants to eat salad but you can't.
I'm convinced everyone in this world has some form of OCD. My OCD just happens to be "Obsessive Crohn's Disease".
A good Bowel Prep Can Prevent A Crappy Day!
May your life be like toilet paper, long and useful.
Bathroom graffiti under a sign that said "Employees Must Wash Hands" someone wrote: I waited and waited, but I finally washed them myself.
Sign on bathroom door: Do not disturb, busy battling Crohns Disease!
My life is full. 70% in waiting rooms. 20% in bathrooms. 5% with the doctor. 5% sleep.

"You see, you spend a good piece of your life gripping a baseball, and in the end it turns out that it was the other way around all the time." Jim Bouton, Ball Four, 1970
"A ball player's got to be kept hungry to become a big-leaguer. That's why no boy from a rich family ever made the big leagues."
Joe DiMaggio, quoted in New York Times, 30 April 1961
"The other sports are just sports. Baseball is a love."
Bryant Gumbel, 1981
The three days of Christmas: It will take up to 72 hours to digest your holiday dinner. Carbs (stuffing and pumpkin pie) will be processed first. The dry, overcooked protein that is your holiday turkey will come next. Fat (gravy and whiped cream) will be the last to go. However if you have Crohns I predict that it will be out in less then 72 minutes.
The small intestine contains so many folds-down to the microscopic level-that its total surface area is about 2,700 square feet, enough to cover a tennis court.....1 inch of that with crohns = tons of horrible, unbelievable pain and it is amazing how quickly food can pass through it!!!
The gastrointestinal tract is a 30 foot tube....unless you've had some of it removed like me!!!

Who started the Gatorade shower?
Although the exact origins of the tradition are hotly debated, former New York Giants defensive tackle Jim Burt often gets the credit for the first bath. (http://www.mentalfloss.com/)
