It's Tuesday and I'm in a funk. That means this could be an interesting Confession Tuesday except I'm on serious time crunch. The kidlet is running track this season so I have a parent meeting. Oh, joy. Yes, that is dripping with sarcasm.
I'm also on the rag and yes, I said on the rag. I did say I was in a funk, remember. Unlike some of my peers, I find nothing even remotely affirming about having my period. I was going to write a long rant about periods, pads and tampons but I don't have time. Do check out some very cool discussions about the new book Flow at A Striped Armchair and Feminist Review, and the talk about the Diva Cup. I'm so serious about giving the cup a go.
Lastly, I have to leave Bedrock. Really. If I hear one more idiot talk about healthcare reform and their argument is clearly something they've pulled out of their backside because if they actually did any reading they'd know this plan is not about raising our taxes to support more welfare babies (Yes, someone actually said this today), I think I'll lose it for real. 2018, people. That's a eight years away and we know how our leaders can muck things up so before you get your panties in wad, remember the private sector and our leaders have plenty of time to either get it right or more likely fail to meet either camp's expectations.
May I make a ridiculously simple and obvious suggestion? Before you weigh in on a political debate, read, people. Read. Don't rely solely on talk radio or your favorite sports announcer, READ. You'll have a far better chance of saying something intelligent- okay for some of you, you'll have a better chance of saying something based on a modicum of facts instead of the dung that is multiplying everywhere you step.
