Y'all see the man hanging out of the spaceship with the really big gun? Now I'm not saying you weren't easy to find. It was kinda out of our way, and he didn't want to come in the first place. Man's lookin' to kill some folk. So really it's his will y'all should worry about thwarting.

Without a plan, it turns out, a lot of decisions are really hard. Eliot might actually hate his shrink. Yes, Eliot is getting healthier or whatever, but at what cost? He used to be a mess of scar tissue and substance abuse, but he could get dressed in the morning without an existential crisis.

And, okay, girl-wonder.org is just freaking brilliant today. (Check out the forums, too!)

Wait, is this real-world child support, where the money goes to buy food for the kids, or MRA fantasyland child support where the women just buy Ferraris and cocaine? -Jessica

Hey, I just found out that the Gap has a preemie line!


Everything is soft cotton, with no scratchy bits, kimono-style so that tubes and such won't be disrupted. Everything looks sooper-cuddly.

Wow. That's cool and a little bit freaky at the same time. That there'd be that big a need, I mean.

Have you seen the wee ones, Allyson? Can you give an adorableness update?

Woe to the fucking wicked.

Brenda, it's interesting: in a couple of my classes (when I was a student) we talked about how one of the major offshoots of modern medicine was an increase in the number of preemies, as kids who wouldn't have survived a decade or two ago now did.

Of course, it would be better if more of them were carried to term, but, really, I tend to think of it as a net win.

If that makes it less freaky to think about.

Hey Kat! How are you? How are Noah and Grace?

Now let us crush something soft and watch it fountain blood. That is a girlish thing to want to do, yes?

KAT!! We tried to hold the natter for you, but people were complaining about the slow thread death. Like the small people, I guess it just wanted to come.
