The Man I Don't Know

People who read my blogs regularly know 2 things. One is that I regularly complain about able-bodied men and their wayward behavior and two is that I have written in this blog in a long time. I don't even know this guy's name, but he helped me out today when I thought food stamps paid for pre-made... Sign in to see full entry.

Read this - What a nice guy

Today I discovered that I truly still believe in the power of romance. My PCA's boyfriend bought her roses and girl scout cookies to my house where she was working. She wasn't even expecting him to come over, he just called her cell phone randomly from my parking lot. It was so sweet, he is so nice.... Sign in to see full entry.

Thanks Blogit!

Many of you may know that I have been quite ill this summer, which is unusual for me even though I’m disabled. I am unable to go out very much or even stay up all day without taking a nap.

Thoughts on the Gloria Steinem Leadership Institute

Many pro-choicers refuse to acknowledge the eugenic ideology that motivated... Sign in to see full entry.

And We're Gonna Get Married, Too!

Yesterday, for the first time in a while, I smiled a real smile. For a few hours, I wasn’t thinking about the war, corporate takeover of the country, and/or other horrifying matters.
