I’m gonna miss you guys!

So this weekend, I exploded a burrito in the microwave,* dropped the weights on my chest,** and apparently might have given myself pinkeye.*** Go me! *This was actually kind of cool, except for the part where I had to scrape…

Cat Mommy Driveby

Zuzu’s post received a few unpleasant responses, to the effect that she’s wrong to give up her animals rather than attempt to take them to the Maple Leaf State. That she shouldn’t offer them up to a good home in…

Elizabeth Dole Speaks for Me!

Qgrrl, in comments on Amp’s thread about how, ceteris paribus (this is important!), he’d vote for a woman candidate over her otherwise indistinguishable male counterpart: I don’t quite know where to begin. Let me first say that I find it…

When There’s No Plan B

Anti-choice politics of limiting birth control cause more abortions than they prevent. This should be obvious, and one woman demonstrates it here. General idea is this: Busy married couple with two kids find some private time, and they have sex.…

AIDS at 25

A must-read op/ed in the LA Times from a doctor who treated one of the first recognized AIDS patients in the United States, and was the first to publish his findings. His stories are heart-wrenching, and his passion obvious. I’m…

Abortion in State Races

Abortion is presenting quite an issue to pro-choice and anti-choice politicians like. Now that South Dakota has banned abortion, pro-choicers are understandably panicking, and anti-choicers have a wrench thrown in their strategy of slowly chipping away at abortion rights. In…

Office Piranhas

Watch out, middle-aged men: They’re gonna getcha. They are identifiable not by their short skirts or heavy make-up but by their unflinching devotion to their male bosses. They will work late for them, pick up their dry cleaning and even…

So there’s this meme going around…

And I’m not going to answer it, but I wanted to ask all of you: What’s the least attractive “fantasy” component you can possibly think of? Are you profoundly lactose intolerant (or an ultra-militant vegan), so much so that the…
