sethrak: Yzma rubbing her eyes (Yzma)
I just need to vent about one thing.

THE MORNING AFTER PILL ***DOES NOT WORK THAT WAY***!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

::deep breath::

I can understand Country Girl incorrectly calling them abortion pills, she's from a conservative background which probably earnestly tells everyone they really are abortion pills and the people who say otherwise are godless liars, and she's also deeply freaked out about the near-miss she and Pizza Delivery Boy had with the unexpected walker at the pharmacy. (About which, more at some point.)

But god DAMN it you lazy writers! They are called morning after pills for a reason! If you're at the point where you're testing positive on a pee strip and having stereotypical nausea symptoms, you've got a fertilized egg implanted and the morning-after pill won't do damn skippy to help you anymore! Throw in a couple lines about how the pregnant woman knows they probably won't work but she's desperate enough to try anyway!

Gah!

Gah, I say!

(Couldn't find a diff. repost of the AP article that didn't significantly truncate it.)

Jack woke up at 2:30 am, giggly, bouncy, and very wet. I changed him, and he went back to sleep just in time for Tom's alarm to go off at 4. x_x

I intend to follow the sage advice of Mr. Samuel L. Jackson as soon as they're on the bus.

When Susan Fluke testified about the need to spend several thousand dollars a year on birth control?

She was talking about prescription birth control pills.

NOT CONDOMS.

That is all.

Fascinating article on the science of tissue samples and cryogenics: http://www.wired.com/magazine/2010/05/ff_biobanks/all/1

Edited to add: http://blogs.discovermagazine.com/notrocketscience/2010/05/24/protect-biodiversity-alleviate-poverty-the-surprise-benefits-of-protected-areas/#more-1699

Link's what it says in the url, an article showing that in at least two areas, preserving wildlife and biodiversity does not damage human quality of life, but rather enhances it.


Zodlings are asleep. A guy from Maintenance is working on the fence. I still can't find Mark's Tricare insurance card, and may have to call for a replacement after all. Grrr. I thought I had his paperwork organized better than this.
