I will forgive Rex Ryan almost anything because I am convinced that the Kissing Suzy Kolber's "It Gets Worse" post was real and describes the real Sexy Rexy. You will not convince me otherwise.

Dan, quit fucking around on the internet and go write your manuscript. This is obviously an attempt at procrastination.

If he drunkenly jammed it in with no lube and you can still poop the next day, you are a lucky, lucky woman. And I say this as someone who can do anal with no prep (but LOTS of lube). Sit him down, look him in the eye, tell him he's a complete jackass, and ask him what he was thinking. If he says the equivalent of "yeah, it was there, I was drunk, wanted to try, sorry" then evaluate how sincere the "sorry" part is before you punch him in the balls. If he's not cognizant of the damage he could have done and not very sorry, it's ball-punching-dtmfa time. If not, tell him he's in for a pegging so that he can understand.

The article's right - it's clean, it's quiet, it (mostly) runs, and if you're downtown, it'll take you to Greektown, or Comerica Park, or Joe Lewis, or Cobo. But you can't, as they say, get there from here. You've got to drive if you want to ride on it. Which, if you think about it, is just the dumbest thing in the world.

Okay, it's sad that I knew what a funnel gag was, but had no idea you could browse in private. I agree - she may not be pissed about your probable porn viewing, but because all of her auto-complete links are disappearing. I know that would burn my ass, given how pathetically I rely on it every time I launch my browser (not to mention my complete failure to remember anyone's email address beyond the first two letters). Private browsing and a conversation about what she's actually angry at you for are musts.

Just chiming in with support for Aydian. Any kind of breast surgery is expensive, and insurance is iffy at the best of times. Great shirts, and good luck!

Alton Brown has a show where he makes his own microwave popcorn - just a paper bag, a little oil, some popcorn kernels and salt. Looked fabulous and it'll work in the office without that stench.

The show is good, but very MTV - frentic editing, quick cuts, close camera work, not a lot of depth to any particular segment. If you get the chance next time Dan, you should have them go with an hour-long premiere or have more outtakes on the web. Otherwise, all of us crazy die-hards will simply go to youtube and watch your clips. They're longer and often funnier.

sweet juniper has some great pictures of what he calls "feral houses" and other destroyed Detroit stuff. He's very interesting and thoughtful.

Anyone remember Seldane? The allergy drug? It had some form of amphetamines in it, and was absolutely the BEST. ALLERGY. DRUG. EVER. (You know, for those of us whose entire head swells and explodes in the spring when the trees bloom). And it made me a complete basket case - elevated heart rate, dry mouth, moody, angry, etc. Then it was pulled off the market because it caused, you know, DEATH.

So, although I'm fully on that stupid federal list thing that you have to sign every time you want to go get some actual Sudafed (which is, you know, legal amphetamines), I'm the first to say that it's seriously bad shit, and to stay away from it. Go get yourself a real espresso machine and OD on that. Or actually study in advance and do your term papers on time.

Just because you get good grades and live in the suburbs, you're not exempt from being a twat.

Great interview, and bonus points for asking about raising kids, because that's what I've always wanted to ask. Doorstop phase indeed. Preach it.
Mar 22, 2012 crivins commented on Why Transvaginal Ultrasounds Aren't Physician-Assisted Rape (According to One OB-in-Training).
I've probably had between 20 and 30 transvaginal ultrasounds (IVF - all kinds of fun!). Having also had to confront the possibility that I might have to abort one of the embryos that I had just lovingly gestated for 15 weeks meant that, had all the associated science not worked out, I might have had another 2 or 3. I would never contemplate having an abortion without one - the level of detail they provide is simply without peer, especially in the early stages of pregnancy (or ovarian tumors). That being said, I don't want anyone telling me that I MUST have one in order to have an abortion. That's between me and my doctor (and the medical board that will unlicense (de-license?) the doctor for failing to provide the correct standard of care if one isn't performed).
