It’s been one of THOSE days.
The days where you’re awakened by a phone call with bad news (even if it’s an answer you’ve been waiting for…it’s never fun to be told that your thyroid and hypothalamus have both just stopped giving a shit with regard to your T3 levels, and that your adrenal glands [...]
A young man with Down’s syndrome in Maryland wanted to sit through another showing of a movie. Rather than either asking him to leave, or leaving him alone (seriously, he sits through another showing, what happens? It’s likely his companion would have gotten him out of there, anyway), the theater calls in some security guards [...]
I just learned from Breda’s Facebook (trademark pending) that there’s a New Jersey school implementing a “no cursing” rule for female students. The males, however, have simply been asked to abstain from cursing when females are near.
Allow me to quote from “The Birdcage”:
Val: “Are you upset?”
Armand: “…and let me tell you why.”
Someone who used to be a very dear friend of mine posted the following in a public forum, this morning (I broke it up because it was a giant wall of text…I guess for impact purposes):
Last night I was down in the city with my fiance and his mother and stepdad, who are visiting [...]

…every woman who crosses the state line could be pregnant at any time, without knowing it. Seriously…think about it. If she has sex, no matter where she is in her cycle, she’s just risked having a 2-week-old fetus (by the definition of this law) MAGICALLY IMPLANTED into her uterus.
What is it with [...]
Jezebel pretty much covers the snark portion of this situation, so I’ll leave that to them.
You guys want to know why I’m not talking about politics, anywhere?
THIS IS WHY.
BECAUSE EVERYONE IS A MORON IN AN ELECTION YEAR, MORE SO THAN USUAL.
Have you ever heard of “magical thinking”? It’s very [...]
I started this blog over on Blogger/Blogspot because of the Virginia Tech shooting. At the time, I was poring over articles, skimming some, thoroughly reading others, and I couldn’t get enough information. It was like this compulsion to have all of the answers possible.
Now, in Aurora, CO, there are 12 families who’ve lost loved [...]
(I posted this on Facebook just now, and I know there are folks who read here who aren’t on my FB who might have something to add.)
***Okay, so in comments on FB, someone asked me where I got this idea. I’ve gotten it EVERYWHERE. The places that aren’t outright saying this can’t agree on [...]
So I haven’t posted about this because I’ve been caught up with my cat, the death of a fellow opera singer, my nephew (who’s reached the age where farts are just the most spectacularly funny things, ever), and the usual crap, but a little over a week ago, I found out where my rapist works, [...]
