First Thing’s First…

Yes, I know it’s Wednesday. But that’s what happens when you work all day Sunday, work the Monday before Thanksgiving, end up getting a cold by the end of the day, work through a cold Tuesday, and eventually work from home Wednesday. So yes, today isn’t Monday. You and I know this, but we’ll act like it’s not a big deal (because it isn’t). Continue reading

This past week and a half has been quite a doozy for yours truly. It started back on Friday, May 26 in the morning when I was vomiting ever so gracefully in the bathroom of a classy Boston hotel room.

When heading home, I found myself constantly blowing my nose in a futile attempt to clear my nasal passages. See folks, if you don’t properly puke simply back out of your mouth and you use your nose like an idiot, you end up with crap up in your sinuses that should be in your lower intestine a few hours later. I didn’t know it until a few days later, but it was a big ol’ sinus infection. Continue reading

[Source: Motto] – Australian Senator Larissa Waters made history Tuesday as the first person to breastfeed in her country’s Parliament. Waters, the co-leader of the left-wing Greens party, returned from a 10-week-long maternity leave with her newborn daughter, Alia Joy, and nursed her during a vote. The parliamentarian was instrumental in passing a rule last year that allowed for members to breastfeed in the senate chambers, according to The Courier Mail. Still, Waters was surprised to receive so much attention.

What a hardo, amirite??

Stories like this are exactly the type of click bait that get men and women, super feminists and douchebag guys, or old and young people into fights. It’s another one of those issues that’s trying to play both sides of the argument. Continue reading
