Got back last night from the 3 day roundtrip roadtrip to St. Louis (9 hours, baby) with two of my oldest friends, and want to do justice to all that female bonding and empowerment that went on so not writing about it yet (there is nothing like a trip with old friends to make 9 hours go by like THAT, and your throat to get sore from TALKINGSOFUCKINGMUCH). In the meantime, and light of BlogHer afterglow, check out this UCLA study on Friendship Among Women (thanks Jen) and silently nod your head. (For the record, I am naturally suspicious of biologically determinist claims regarding gender. Unless that claim is agreeable to me, and then I suck that shit up)
Anyway, I want to do justice to the experience, and as work is a freaking circus right now and I have a DENTAL EMERGENCY (please hold me I am very, very pussylike right now) I cannot focus to write.
Yes, one highlight of return trip was eating Subway Sammich and swallowing big chunk of backtooth along with a masticated mouthful of Italian Meats. It's really quite a breathtaking experience. I recommend it.
This means unavoidable mouth x-rays and dental work in about an hour.
This means dental drilling sans nitreous oxide gas.
This means mild hysteria and lapsing into tears on my part (bring on the pitocin, bring on the contractions, bring on episiotomy and the stitches and the pathological fear of bowel movements, but, get that fucking gum-needle bearing novocaine & dental drill OUT OF here. What's that leather thing? Why are you strapping me down? AAaaaaaHHH).
Other news. Big Fuck Off Television now installed. With surround sound. Not sure how I feel about surround sound yet. There is something about all that rumbling coming from the living room at 7:30am as son watches Finding Nemo postbreakfast (while we caffienate, shower, dress, style hair, put on mask, make lunch, put together napbucket, have minor breakdown...) --it amplifies my sense of being slacker-parent when it comes to healthy tv habits. But Netflix is delivering Sin City today, so there always that to really fuck him up with...
