Uterine Parasite from The Onion

I'm too busy doing one of 4 things to post for real. This will continue at least into the next week. After that, stay tuned for highly censored photos. Until then, I laughed out loud at this article. I <3 The Onion.

NEW BRIGHTON, MN— "I'm so happy!" Crowley said of the golf ball–sized, nutrient-sapping organism that will eventually require hospitalization in order to be removed.

Procrastination is like masturbation


Someone was in my stall this morning in Hurtig. The other two had already been used. My stall, the seat is always up when I go to use it. I figure it's either just been cleaned and I'm the first, or a transvestite uses it before me. Either way it seems cleaner.

I used tampons for the first time in 4 months this weekend. I once thought that tampons were the end of all convenience in menstruation receptacles. I was very wrong. Being apart from it made me newly appreciate and fall in love all over again with my cup. Let's just say it was a good thing I was already wearing red, stained shorts.

I recommend V for Vendetta, but you must not just watch it as entertainment. It is social commentary on a dystopia reminiscent of 1984 and of our current society. If you'd like guidance in this reading, I will watch it with you.

I cut off the tip of my thumb (a very tiny piece) which got lost in the spinach which went into the soup which I have thus aptly named "Thumb Soup" - a variation on spinach, sausage and white bean soup. Everyone's all grossed out that we ate it, but really, it already had turkey flesh in it, why is that less gross than human flesh?

It's ironic that this summer it has been difficult for me to keep up blogging. It seems the more I do and consequently have to write about, the less time I have or am willing to sit down and document it. Perhaps I'm merely mimicking Derrida in my refusal to be confined to archives of arbitrary past "truth" and have exchanged it for moments of agency that can never be contained.

Shout out to Adina, 'cause cool people read my blog. Pay attention; people that read my blog are going to be a big deal - and you heard it here first.

They say life goes full circle, but if you can never go back then you're never at the place you started at. This summer I've reconnected with lost people and places from my past, but it's never going back home because I'm a different person in a different place than I was before. Perhaps we were meant to take this time in order to be able to appreciate what we have and have had. Boston wouldn't have held the lure that it did without NH, and I wouldn't appreciate the mountains and the stars of NH without the lights and cement of Boston. The relationships that I had before were doomed because I wasn't capable of what they required. Perhaps they were never doomed, but were hibernating until now I am. I wonder if the people that shaped who I've become ever regret not sticking around to see what that is. You're missing out. Maybe I wouldn't be this person if they had stuck around.

"for the Diva in every woman"

I went to link to this post and realized I never posted it. A distressing oversight which is thus remedied:

4/18/2007


My brand new Diva Cup! It even comes with a little "diva" pin which I think I'm going to give to Dakota as a present. She doesn't read the blog so she won't know that it came with an alternative "menstrual solution". Keep that in mind for those of you who don't have me on rss feed yet...

Removable, permanent tattoos

Freedom-2 ink is surrounded by plastic beads that break with one laser treatment and the ink is absorbed into the body, erasing the tattoo.

At least now you can have "Billy Bob" removed when that disaster doesn't work out...

The cool part: a woman invented it :)

All gussied up

Pictures from the wedding:












It was great! I found out I've been betrothed since age 10 (to a champion boxer in the Air Force no less), heard "Since you were this high!", ate, drank, swam, jumped and was merry.

Nate has more pictures here and I'm sure eventually I'll make a complete album somewhere.

Update on Libertyville

We need less government control over people's lives, not more. This is why I'm against laws against abortion, marijuana, prostitution, gambling, etc. And few things are more dangerous than a group the feels compelled by God to regulate the morality of others. That's how you wind up with Talibans.


My father took it upon himself to pose the question from the Libertyville video "What should the consequences be if abortion were illegal?" on ar15.com. The overwhelming majority of responses are horrifying.

Pay special attention to any graphic depections. Yea. Not funny. Also, Gloria Steinem is NOT a man hater.
