Midweek odds & ends

What Kind of Blogger Are You?

Dunno about the "expert" part...

Morning conversation:
Him: I don't know what to eat this morning.
Me: Make hot cereal. It's a cold day.
Him: Meh. I don't feel like making it.
Me: Well, don't look at me.
Him: What should I eat?
Me: How 'bout ham & eggs?
Him: Only if you make it.
Me: Sorry, not today.
Him: I'll just have yogurt.
Me: You'll be nauseous with hunger and cranky by lunchtime.
Him: Yeah, whatever.
Me (relenting): At least take a couple of granola bars to school.
Him: Good idea.

Little things make me happy. Like a new tube of Colgate Total (who says advertising doesn't get ya?) and a honking big bottle of Listerine (which, at approx. $8, is actually a luxury item in this house.) Oh, and a new blow dryer.

Is it just me, or does Jake look like Son of Frankenstein in this picture? Or possibly the offspring of Frankenstein and Mel Gibson?

Here's a product for women that I can't imagine was invented by a woman. Then again, there were tampons I tried once that were apparently designed by a female obgyn, and I hated them.

Would YOU use the Diva Cup?

Unintentionally funny, a testimonial from an alleged user:
"Truly the best invention since sliced bread (...)!!!!

First off, I am not a gusher; it’s just not an aspect of my personality, BUT...Oh My God! I L-O-V-E my new Diva cup!!"

Not a gusher? Considering the product she was writing about, she should have reread her email before hitting Send.

I've used them and like them well enough... but I like the disposable kind (instead cup) better.

Jake looks old and ill in that photo.

I WORSHIP Instead. I'm not kidding. They are difficult to find, sometimes, and my Mother found EIGHT BIG BOXES at the local Super Target today.

She left them on the counter and when I discovered them I SCREAMED IN DELIGHT. I believe I actually used the word "Hooray."

The fact that I'm trying to bleed to death makes me worship them even more. I know, too much information.

DOWN WITH FIBROIDS. Emerret and Poptart are going DOWN.

P.S. I'd try the Diva cup.

Um... Up with dried-up menopause? I cannot empathize with this product. It is a reminder of times gone by which I do not lament. Also, plastic things inserted into the vagina? Didn't like it then. Don't like it now, and thank god I don't have to deal with this crap no more.

I just bought a Diva cup last month. I've tried it a couple of times and although it wasn't an enjoyable experience, it wasn't totally awful. I have a whole blog entry about it coming up. (Doesn't THAT give you something to look forward to!?!)

Ooooh, yeah. *cue Barry White music*
