In which I am sick and puffy and tired

I got mistaken for "nineteen or twenty" yesterday. I turn thirty in December. I'm not sure if this is a good thing or not. You probably want to slap me right now, but--if you're always being mistaken for being a lot younger, it's like you never really feel like you've grown up.

Oh! By the way, if you've told me you're sending something, I haven't received it (unless I came by and told you otherwise). Something weird is going on with our mail, and things either aren't getting to us, or they're taking a really long time. This is disconcerting, to say the least.

(Confidential to the sender of the unexpected t-shirt: I plan on disregarding your instructions and cherishing it forever. : )


A security patch for Gmail. DO THIS. It requires you checking one box under "Settings" rather than another.

emmileexo: "The government has gotten up to some new form of stupidity and I was hoping you could post it in your next entry. Essentially, they are allowing medical staff and workers to refuse to give a patient an abortion if goes against their conscience, thus meaning that a doctor can refuse to do their job. The wording of the bill is so vague that it can extend to all forms of birth control, so a pharmacist can refuse to give a woman their prescription of the Pill. Even worse, the proposal does not take into account male forms of sterilization, such as condoms or vasectomies. The following link goes to an entry that explains the situation in detail and has links to sites where people can send in emails to protest the proposal. The proposal has a 30 day public comment period, so we only have a month to stop this. The entry: Protest can be sent on this page here."

Let me note here that one of the reasons birth control methods like the Pill are so important is because not all of us take them as contraceptives. Some of us actually take them to treat gynocological disorders like PCOS, for example. So even if you're not pro-choice, contraception isn't even the only thing at stake here.
