Spawning the next generation of evil genius, one misadventure at a time

Dirty Desires….

I have this foolish desire.  It runs hot through my veins.  Very hot.

And my dirty desire…to get a new


trash bin.

Yes, you read that correctly.  I want, in fact, I LUST over getting a new trash bin.  Isn’t that every blogger’s desire?  Next to being paid to write, making it into a book or six, writing your own book and sharing your brilliance with the world?

Silly me, I completely expected Dr. Evil to be on board with me spending a ridiculous about on a trash bin that will fit nicely in the space next to the counter.  I want an oblong trash bin.  The color…doesn’t matter.  I would love a lid that works properly – meaning if there’s a foot pedal to raise the lid, that when stepped upon, the lid does indeed lift.  And one that lacks odor.  I kid you not, yesterday I used a screw driver and dismantled my trash bin to completely clean it with steel wool.  And I even got it back together.

Even with my mad skills of getting that sucker back together I desire a new garbage can!

I’ve done my homework.  I’ve collected consumer guide reports, measurements, and read several reviews.  I’ve even got friends seeing garbage cans in stores and thinking of me!

And today….before I can be caught, I’m going to get a trash bin.  I’m giving into my dirty desire.


My terribly dirty desire of having a clean trash bin.



My post today is part of a writing challenge.  This is how it works: participating bloggers picked 4 – 6 words or short phrases for someone else to craft into a post. All words must be used at least once and all the posts will be unique as each writer has received their own set of words. That’s the challenge, here’s a fun twist; no one who’s participating knows who got their words and in what direction the writer will take them. Until now.  Check out all the posts in today’s challenge!  The links are listed below!

The amazing Karen at Baking in a Tornado gave me : foolish ~ expected ~ run ~ collect ~ hot ~ caught : as words to work with.

  1. Man, let me know what you find! My kids would throw things in the trash before the lid opens. Now that the lid is off, everything stinks. Good luck!

    • Dr. Evil got home before I could shopping. Damn it! Now he’s taken my $$ and bought the evil necessities … like groceries with it. GRRRR…I’m still looking…amazon prime is going to be my friend.

  2. My favorite part of Use Your Words is when the recipient takes your words in a completely unexpected direction. You do not disappoint. Great job!

  3. I too lust after a new garbage can. Shiny and functional. Maybe a little sleek and non stinky would be incredible.

    You are not alone in your trashy obsession.

    • We “desirers of a new trash bin” need to unite. WE must support our on going obsession with the desire to find a new bin…and then must support each other when our new bin becomes our new trashed trash bin.

  4. Too funny!!
    I used to lust after a new bin. Then we got one and it didn’t take long for the kids to destroy it, too. I’ve given up!

    • I need to give up. problem is the one we got was broken when my sister gave it to us and i’m too cheap to buy a new one. i thought by writing this and saying i would…then i would. then dr. evil got home from travel and squashed my plans. he’s so responsible. darn it!

  5. I am once again AMAZED what a creative blogger can do with a couple of words! While I was reading, I thought the words MUST be trash, lust, lid, odor,… but no! Congrats and I hope you get the shiny trash bin you’ve been desiring cause you deserve it!

    • awwww. thanks friend! no…not yet. i’m taking one of the girls shopping today (just us…because…well…it’s her first real bra) and maybe just maybe we’ll happen to find a trash bin on the way home!

  6. Wow. I didn’t know what to expect!

    I think I have a latent dirty desire for a new trash bin, too…

  7. I just got a new one, though it was plastic and cheap. But now, the Boy Child can take the trash out without ripping the bag. lol

    • that is huge! and a partial reason for wanting a new one. we buy the cheap bags…in my mind the environmental impact is less if the plastic will be broken more easily in the dump and then decomp will happen at a better pace. and then with the current bin the spawn stuff it so full the seal created by the bag and the inside of the can causes much … well .. if i’m the one dealing with … swearing.

      smart move on your part!

  8. What did you think of the ones that open automatically when you pass your hand over the lid? So…..what kind did you get?
