I thought all brains came with a filtering mechanism January 23, 2008
But clearly I was wrong. Witness this list of things actual people have said to me:
1. "Are you *sure* it isn’t twins?" [said by more than one person]
2. "I don’t mean to be rude but…the belly isn’t going to get *bigger* is it?"
3. "I’m pregnant too, but I don’t carry like you–*I* am sucking it all in."
I am trying to have a sense of humor about things though, and just waiting for the day I can fall in the cafeteria and yell out "Is anyone here a marine biologist?". (In the meantime, I re-read point 10 of this post frequently.)
So the only problem with having high standards for yourself… January 22, 2008
is not being able to meet them, feeling crappy about that, and also having a high standard for not allowing self to feel crappy.
And….we can cure the criminal mind! January 17, 2008
Oh wait, no, the criminal mind expert is this guy: Tom Cruise, scary laugh guy.
