Congratulations, Donna!

As of tomorrow, Donna – one of our board regulars, and a friend – will have been living full-time for a year. She’s had more than her share of trials and tribulations, yet she has come through it with grace… Continue Reading

They Kill Horses, Don’t They?

It’s come to my attention that people who use Premarin may not be aware that they are directly causing the slaughter of mares and fillies. I thought this information was well-known by now, but apparently not. Since Premarin is created… Continue Reading

Much to my chagrin, Kiss of Athena discovered people were blogging against heteronormativity this past Saturday. Better late than never, I guess. You can read more about why at this blog, blac(k) academic.

I’ve lost 8 lbs., and taken off 3.6″ since I started this plan on 3/19/06. Yay for me.

Go Oprah

She’s doing a show about class tomorrow, Friday 4/21. I never thought I’d see a show about class on American television.
