I’m gonna get you into the light

OMG, freaking AWESOME, go Texas!

How can anyone be 7’9″??!?!?!?

The weird thing about the itty bit of snow we got in Tennessee was how fast it dissapeared. As long time PNW resident I’m familiar with snow in morning and almost none in the evening, but up there it becomes hideous, mushy slush. Soaking and dirtying everything, usually with an added bit of ice and black ice to make your commute horrendous. Here, in Tennessee, it just disappeared. Like evaporated or something. In any case the roads were clear and dry and the snow in the yard just isn’t hardly there anymore.

Generally I dislike snow. Or perhaps HATE is a better word. Though really this only applies to snow in urban areas. In the mountains and country and stuff it’s good and fun. But actually I find the snow today sort of satisying. Even now as it’s shitty-ass cold, I can go out to smoke and it’s like the snow and ice that’s left is tangible evidence of the retarded cold. Like it’s not just all in my head. *ahem”

  1. It’s always an Old 97s kind o’ day!

  2. On the one hand, as a parent, I can’t agree with any law that takes control of their children’s health out of the hands of parents. Suppose it became mandatory for contested vaccines like the MMR? I had my son take the MMR. Had I another child, I go for the three seperates.

    On the other hand, the reasons for not giving the vaccine from those conservative are ridiculous. Most women who I know who’ve had brushes with cervical cancer were in commited relationships.

    And I’m one of those who figures if the teens are going to do it, they’re going to do it. So might as well have them do it safely.

    If I had a daughter, I’d let her have the vaccination, because overall, it will be good for her future health.

  3. While I agree that legislating vaccinations is a very dangerous slippery slope, my response to this news is based on my owne xperiences. My sister is 14. My mom has a very good job and VERY good health insurance and could not get the vaccination for her, instead had to pay several hundre dollars out of packet to get it at Planned Parenthood. So madating vaccines not necessarily great, but requiring health authorities to make vaccines available free to people uninsured or whose insurance does not cover vaccines is awesome.

  4. I quite agree that making it free to all is an excellent idea. I come from a country with a free healthcare system, so I didn’t think of that point.

  5. 1. that icon is freaking me out.
    2. you’d go outside the weather bubble to smoke
    3. that gardesil thing is the awesomest shit ever.
