The awful 90s ear worm I’ve had for the past two days: WHYYY. Just get out of my head, White Town.
Yep. It’s Devil Pred time. :( We saw the fetal specialist last week. After our (fifth! Good god!) ultrasound, during which we learned that the babe’s fluid is still doing great. We also saw more hair. We also learned that the baby is currently transverse breech — he’s lying sideways, the ding-dong. While the docs think … More The Devil is in the House
Yesterday I came across this Matt Wallace post about a Canon ad for (presumably?) their self publishing program: Reality Check: Canon’s See Impossible “Author” Ad Here’s the ad in question, if you don’t feel like clicking through: Boy howdy, is it fantasy land. I think my favorite part is when the “author” has actual sit-down … More Ugh, Canon, no.
Can we talk about the love, hate, and general mockery the Internet has for passive aggressive notes? And showcasing such notes on dedicated websites? I mean, as a blogger, obviously I come down on the love side of things because sometimes a blog (THIS blog, perhaps?) seems like one loooooooong multitopical passive aggressive bitchfest.

Aka ramblings degenerating into ramblings.
So I was looking at these images from Childbirth Connection, and I just have to say, good gods, won’t anyone think of the intestines? Here’s the 20 weeks pic: In other words, ho-hum, everything’s looking good. But! Flash forward to 28 weeks, and what do we see? A weird mashing of intestines, that’s what! And … More Anatomical Miracles
Previously and previously. Each day as we browse our merry way around the Internet, we’re bombarded with terrible ads. They run the gamut from awkward to off-putting to just plain unsightly. It’s as if once upon a time, the Chief of the Super Secret Cabal of Internet Advertisers said, No World Wide Web user will … More Baaaad Internet Ads, Part the Third
Oh, shut up, Yahoo News.
(Incidentally, when I type “mofos” my autocorrect helpfully adjusts it to “moos”. I’m not sure which is better.) Pre-Existing Condition Bans: Are They Really Gone? But the mix up raised a broader question – What about the requirement of the Affordable Care Act that prohibited pretty much all pre-existing condition exclusions as of Jan. 1, 2014?
