Even though I wear jeans and a polo shirt EVERY DAY, I still love gofugyourself.com and this is why.

Do you ever hear a song on the radio and really like it, and look to hear who it is and read, "Teen heartthrob Ashley Parker Angel" and formerly of "the five-member boy band O-Town," and just cringe? Like, what is that doing on my Pandora station? And didn't I used to have taste?

Have you ever noticed that none of the important stuff comes with warning labels?
Like, on the shampoo that I use for Flora's tail, it says, "WARNING: For external use only." Because there are many people out there with a working knowledge of the English (or Spanish) languages, who don't know what shampoo is.
But on the cat's hairball medicine, it just says "Apply to cat's paws. Not for human consumption." Nowhere does it say that it will strip the paint off your walls and ceiling, permanently stain your furniture, and probably also cause your cat to claw your eyes out. Nowhere does it say that it smells like a combination of malted milk balls and crap, or that it has approximately the same chemical makeup as quick drying cement. Nowhere does it say that the cat may be so revolted by it that she will refuse to lick it off herself. Just saying, these are things they could have mentioned.
And it's not me. Sorry, didn't mean to lead y'all on. I've been invited to a ridiculous number of weddings this year, including three on the same day (a distant cousin, boy I grew up with, and close friend from high school.) And here's the thing. I'm jealous. Not so much because of the whole marriage thing--I don't want to be married, at least not now, and not to anyone I know at the moment. Yes, R., if you read this. You're safe :)>
But I want a kick-ass party, a fancy dress, and presents. I want everyone to say how pretty I am. And I want it NOW, not some time in the distant, unforseeable future. I need a pity shower. And yes, in a couple of years I'll be whining about being the only one with no kids, not because I want kids, but because I want the adorable accessories.
Also, why can't people register at some new and exciting stores? I don't even have to look, I already know. BedBathandBeyond. CrateandBarrel. Target. They all want the exact same stuff. I bet none of them will even use their stupid pasta makers.
This entry has been brought to you by self-pity, and should probably not be read by anyone.

It's been a long time since I posted here, huh? And yet--I have nothing to say. Except, yay, horsie pictures! Not very exciting, but doesn't Flora look pretty?Smallest Jump Ever!Miss Flourish Has Her Doubts, But Carries Bravely OnTwo Feet This Time Out!

I would have an abortion. The circumstances under which I would, might, have, or might have chosen to have an abortion are nobody's business but mine and those I choose to tell. They are not the business of any government. I do not accept the proposition that either the state or my sexual partner(s) should have any say over when and if I choose to bear a child. I do not accept any sovereignty over my body and my reproductive organs but my own. If faced with the situation, I will do everything feasible to help other women and girls I know exercise their rights to safely terminate a pregnancy if they so choose. When a state treats women and girls as chattel, it is they that commit a crime.

Happy (slightly early) birthday, Anne!
Also, dear universe:
I get it. I will watch Grey's Anatomy. Honestly. Please stop deluging me with Grey's Anatomy references. At least until after I've seen it and fallen in love and am squeeing. It's not necessary for there to be interviews with the characters every time I turn on the tv, or radio ads, pop-ups. I see that everyone loves it. I'm convinced it's a good show.

Nothing says I love you like David Hasselhof singing "Hooked On a Feeling."
Seriously, this video is my favorite thing EVER.
