I was listening to NPR this morning, and they had a section on the Texas vote. All was well and good until they reached the Baptist MegaChurch Young Singles group, and I heard several people (one of whom was a woman) tell the reporter that they could never vote for Hillary Clinton because only a man can lead this country. The woman added that women could not do so because they were required to be subordinate to men. I nearly popped a gasket.

Let's say science has invented two new pills. One pill will change you from male to female. The other will change you from female to male. The pills are cheap, legal, and easy to get. The transformation process takes around five minutes and is completely painless.

Oh! And it's always a good day when you can use the phrase, "So, he was the Ron Jeremy of the canine world?" in context.

Yesterday was curiously glorious weather-wise. It was raining -- not usually the best for glorious weather unless it's summer and pouring -- and utterly splendid. Everything was this soft, warm, comfy gray color, and the rain was just warm enough to be comfortable to play in.

Naturally I went outside during my lunch break and just walked around in the rain. My coworkers thought I was nuts, but that's only because they don't appreciate weather.


Still a guy, BTW. I took two quizzes yesterday; both identified me as strongly likely to be male. I snickered. Came home and had a conversation with my husband about how I am, in fact, sometimes more of the guy in our relationship. (Two examples. I do not ask for directions; he does. Then there are our immediate reactions to someone we know being hurt by an SO. His: "Oh you poor dear. Here, let me comfort you." Mine: "Where is the bastard? I'm going to go kick his ass." ) This diverged into a truly bizarre conversation wherein the Rat asked me if I would still be with him if he'd turned out to be a woman instead of a man. I said yes, of course, but admitted that I would have been somewhat confused upon first meeting her.
