Back To School

Many lessons today.

The first lesson is that I've absolutely held steady weight-wise despite less exercise and some delicious red velvet cake. I'm on the verge of being able to record at least a half pound loss at tomorrow's weigh in. Imagine how well I'd be doing if I'd followed the program all week long instead of just 3 days out of 7.

I'm taking an extremely unscientific poll over at The Women's Colony. It's about friendships across gender. Weigh in if you dare.

Lesson the third is, of course, that people are still assholes. Today is the first day of Lent and apparently there's a movement starting today called "40 Days for Life" which is recruiting people to harass women going to family planning clinics. Their site graciously lists all the locations for their protests so, if you'd like to help by becoming an escort at one of the targeted clinics, I'm sure that would be appreciated. I have to warn you, though, I didn't think going to the 40 Days site for just that simple information would upset me but it was extremely triggering even to read their jargon.

After a jolt like that I think it must be time for recess.


  1. No targeted clinics in my area. I'm going to call the closest one to me and ask how I can help.

  2. Ohhhhh fab post at WC. I've been waiting. I finally got to comment at what...midnight thirty? jeez. i gotta go to bed. but yay for all the support over there. I would love for him to read that. . . hmmmmmm
