I had this moment when I told our intern I was going to see Gwen stefani, but I was pretty much hoping she just performed no doubt songs, and he said “I like Gwen stefani, but who’s no doubt?”
I can’t remember if I told y’all this, but I told it to my cousin this weekend,so Imma tell it again.
Hey guys — Meryl Streep said something cool* last night. You know what the best way to share her inspirational quote…
Conspiracy therapist! I know a few people who could use one of those
All of this reminds me of a few weeks ago when I was talking with my boyfriend and asked how long we’ve been together. There was math involved. It came out to ~2.5 years. So I go “Shit... that means I’ll need to get another pap smear soon. My last one was whtn we did our new relationship STD tests.” And just… Read more
Right? Just an attempt a free-market model for insurance and holy crap would costs go down.
Once upon a time, there was some sort of regional phone number that you could call and they would tell you the cost of services upfront. My insurance has a cost estimator on their website, but those can be wildly inaccurate if you go to the wrong office. If consumers just had cost information upfront, the cost of all… Read more
I am seriously considering going to PP for my annual exam / birth control re-up so they’ll get some cash / insurance money from me. I like my OBGYN and I’ve been seeing her for 8+ years but god damn, just give me my pills. I don’t want your fingers inside me.
Yeah, I’d tend to agree with you on that. Hell, when I did an L&D gig at the main hospital a couple of years ago, one of the nurses was talking about how our patient probably wouldn’t take too long to deliver because teenage girls’ plumbing tends not to be all backed up yet, so her baby’d pretty much just move right… Read more
I wonder if they can someday put it together that people go to Planned Parenthood, not *just* for their monthly abortions, but because they provide decent information and services to their patients.
I was surprised I actually thought of it. Typically you only think of the zingers 15 minutes AFTER it would have been helpful.
Squinty pained expression. . . . This wouldn’t have been a Catholic-affiliated hospital, would it?
They are “meaty” in the sense that that word has become a way to describe a certain kind of mushroom quality that does not particularly resemble meat. Like how wines or coffee taste like “wood” but I’ve stuck my tongue on wood (mind out of the gutter, people) before and wood does not have a “woody” taste at all. Read more
In the ‘90s, I read in a vegetarian cookbook that “portobellos are the steak of vegetarians!” Now, every time I buy/order/look at portobellos, I say, “You know, they’re the steak of vegetarians!” because it’s so stupid and I’m totally not annoying. 😀
I agree with this, but I also believe I could give up meat if I could have a perfectly prepared portobello in place of meat for every meal. Because while they do not taste the same, damn are they delicious.
hey now, Best Buy let me order something that was backordered and didn’t tell me until days later. Said it wouldn’t be delivered oil the 26th. I filled out the survey they sent me with almost all “very dissatisfied” and all the sudden the item was in stock and arriving on my in-laws’ doorstep.
