Journal, Lauren

I forgot to say “Happy Birthday” to our nephew Charlie yesterday, so…. “Happy Birthday!”

We met up with Curt in Lincoln for a Saltdogs baseball game, but first we went to dinner at Lazlo’s.  It used to be called Fireworks, but something has changed.  (Charles & Deborah, the big fireplace inside is gone.)  What hasn’t changed are the amazing hand dryers in the bathrooms.  They have such powerful blasts of air they’re like g-forces for your hands.  I snuck my camera inside to take pictures, but of course they turned out blurry.  Trust me, it’s worth going.

Prepare to be Excelorated!

My old hand, as is.

    Ha! I used the dryer in the men’s bathroom. It was like a jet engine! It was all I could do to resist putting my face under it.


  2. Annette Said on:

    I think you met up with Curt to go to Lazlo’s, then went to a Saltdog game.


    • Lauren Said on:

      Ha -- those would be my priorities. I didn’t know about dinner until I came home and sat around for a while, then apparently I almost made us late.

    They have one of those at the Woodman’s grocery store here. Funny thing is -- my hands don’t dry any faster. Scares the crap out of my 3 year though.

    Holy Hollow is right! That’s amazing … I do so want to try it … Did it have a heat control, ’cause if it had a cool setting, I’d love to live under it!

      The one in the guys restroom was a pleasantly cool hurricane force gale. It was also motion activated, so you didn’t have to push a button every three seconds.


  5. Deborah Said on:

    So, is the old Lazlo’s still there too? So many changes. . . so many changes.


  6. Deborah Said on:

    I can almost see your haircut in that first picture.

    Yes these are great! The Xlerator makes all those other dingy white hand dryers seem like a pale chain smoker with emphysema.

    Nice blog too! Are you guys in Lincoln? I recently passed through Omaha and up to Sioux Center, Iowa. Great people and a fun road trip.

    […] were new hand dyers. They were Xlerators! I had seen them before in Lincoln. Lauren documented it. My comment makes me laugh. Especially considering the picture I took last […]
