Thanks Mum, I'm alive!

This morning as I was walking from the carpark to work (the 10 minute walk saves me paying to be in the carpark next to my building) I saw a middle aged Indian man wearing a moss green tweed sports coat and a beige beret. Pure class. It sure beats having to walk past the anti-abortion protesting old men in their "Thanks Mum, I'm alive!" and "Abortion Kills" sandwich boards (the perks of working at a hospital). One of them was getting honked at by passing cars the other day, and I like to tell myself that they were abusive honks and not supportive ones. I was quite happy yesterday though cause I walked past one of them wearing my devil horn hoodie, and actually made eye contact for a change. It's not that I think abortion should be used as a contraceptive, but I'm definitely pro-choice. What impact do unwanted pregnancies have on old men anyway?

On a happier note, I have been reading The Casual Friday, a hilarious blog (although the word "blog" still creeps me out for some reason) full of random thoughts, observations and occasional references to the 80s (nobody has mentioned the ThunderCats yet, which I may have to do). It has been distracting me from fully developing a rage about the idiocy of the questions I am asked repeatedly throughout the course of my work day.

Don't worry Wendy, the word blog creeps me out too...

I intensely dislike those old men outside the hospital. As if someone going in for a termination doesn't already feel bad enough about themselves!

weird...the date/time shows up in your time zone. That kind of freaks me out. I should be in bed, not beginning my day!

I always thought that the Thundercats never got the respect they deserve. For the love of God, Liono became a man on a spaceship!!! - Darcy Wallace
