off to see the doctor ...

in one hour, i'm off to see the doctor to continue my argument about birth control. edit: cancel that. appointment is tomorrow. I can't keep my schedule straight.

I must maintain my spine and not agree to try any more hormonal crap. I had a dream that i did that. A little bit scary, it was.

dreammadeflesh and I went to see S.W.A.T. last night. It was cliche, but it was fairly well done cliche. Colin Farrell has only one facial expression as far as I can tell. Lots of cool toys in the movie. Shiny guns.

Afterwards, i was all lightheaded and spacy ... i think, in retrospect, i might have been hypoglycemic. Drinking did not help the situation. Nothing major, i just felt like a space cadet all night.

Dr. Harris and Naomi and I had breakfast at Mimi's yesterday ... I think I have a new favorite place for breakfast ... not that i'm ever up early enough, but on the off chance ...

Oh, and a moment of surreal last night ... Michael and I took Griffin for a walk, just down to the 7-11 and back. Walking down his street, we notice a dog silently loping down the other side of the street ... a distinctive gait, quite fast, and without a sound at all. Griffin barely took notice, and it took Michael and I a second to figure out what we saw ... a fucking coyote, running down the street of a residential neighborhood in Costa Mesa.

They're getting bolder. I'm seeing attacks at work from more populated areas. It used to be only the people who moved out into the hills ... in the last couple years, i've heard reports of sightings in downtown fullerton ... i never expected to see one down here.

Lock up your cats at night. Poor Willie the Pomeranian the other night ... my friend had just let him out to the side yard to go out ... as soon as he stepped out the door ... they were waiting for him.

Scary.




So I've got this appointment ... then work tonight ... then work tomorrow night ... and I don't know if I'm working Friday or not ... then I work Saturday, Sunday, Monday ... i think i have Tuesday off ... start school Wednesday.

Hopefully I will be able to cut my hours soon.

coyotes in Costa Mesa? damn. how long until they make it 3 more miles west to Huntington Beach? *shakes head*

I think Cinnamon could take them, though.

good luck at your appointment tomorrow. *chuckles* it's interesting...my sociology teacher was talking about the voluntary childfree lifestyle yesterday, and I was the only one out of 30 people who even remotely agreed with it. why is this such a hard thing..?

Why do people get so upset with that idea? insane ... my mom is finally starting to agree with me, that i have my reasons and they are logical. She does not, however, like it when i use the term "spay" in regards to my being sterilized.

I have no worries about Cinnamon. I've never seen one take anything over 15 pounds. I worry about Flea. Dogs have been taken from the ends of leashes.

It was funny, too ... we see this coyote lope down the street ... keep walking ... and a few houses down, there's a cat sitting out front looking totally unworried, like nothing was going on.

yeah, but that cat was probably unconcerned because it could get up a tree or on a roof like that *snaps* if I could, I wouldn't care either.

my mother still thinks I will change my mind, though she doesn't argue the point and knows it wouldn't matter if she did. I don't think Dad cares too much...he doesn't want to know any details concerning that region of his daughters' bodies...his engineer mind can't handle it. but there is still the disapproval coming from many other sources...

since my body has settled down as far as this pill is concerned, I'm going to take it till next summer as long as I have no further problems. that should give me enough time to create an airtight and inarguable presentation on why Kaiser should sterilize me. *crosses fingers*

good luck with that. I say go multimedia - laser pointers, handouts, diagrams, powerpoint. just overwhelm them and they'll have to say yes.

i wish i could take a pill.
no ... i wish i could take a pill and not be a miserable water-retaining no-sex-drive mood-swingy bitch.

to be fair, there ARE so many different kinds of pills that you might be able to find something suitable, but I completely understand why you don't want to, and in your position I wouldn't either. you should be able to utilize non-hormonal birth control if that's your choice, end of story.

I'm thinking the better approach may be to swamp them in paperwork...give them the equivalent of the king james bible in papers and watch people get really nervous.

the bit that makes me wary is that i have tried so many different ones already ... different ones make me sick for different reasons. Some of them have caused problems with my diabetes. In short, I have had a huge variety of negative experiences with a huge variety of pills.

And while i do not like the idea of putting hormones in my body, i obviously have no problem with stuffing metal into my body.

I do have an appointment today, for sure. Back to begging.

NONONONOno. I wasn't mocking you. It reminded me of a story of a woman who decided that the tigers at the zoo were so adorable that she would hug one. Yeah.... she barely survived.

Um... I should clarify in the futurel.

I apologize;. I've taken down the offending post because I reread it a few times and realized that it didn't sound like I was recounting an anecdote. in the future I'll make my vituperation more evident in it's direction

the bit that freaks me out some is that the coyotes are not even bothering to hide anymore ...

I've always had some sympathy for the creatures ... we forced them out of their territory, they have a right to be here. I just worry about pets.

info
when we moved in to the west the coyote was only found in a small area of the south west and mostely in the neveda and arizona new mexico and twxas to a small extant. our comeing didnt displace them sadly it exploded their growth. they are now found from mexico city to salem oregon from los angeles to maine. the coyote much like the red tailed hawk has not adapted to our being here but flourished

Re: hey
Maybe.

I'm scheduled for work on Friday, but I don't want to work and I'm trying to find a way to get out of it. I'll e-mail you early Friday morning and let you know.
