@madge oh i like you
@Gleemonex friggin' right, sister...though, in my case it was the Ford Escape the kids were strapped into...
okay it came out in late 93 but "rebel girl" by bikini kill -- that girl thinks she's the queen of the neighborhood / i got news for you / SHE IS"
I tell you what, *this* 40-year-old suburban mom has made her little kids sit in the Highlander with her, strapped in their carseats in the driveway, till she finished listening to of a number of these songs, very loud, on Sirius's Lithium (90s alternative) channel. Oh Mazzy Star, I'll never ever be over "Fade Into You." On a related note: There really should be more songs about happily day-drinking with strangers while the workday world goes on around you.
Say what you will about Courtney Love, but Live Through This is fucking incredible. Also, if we're giving Hole the entire album, I ask the same treatment for Sonic Youth's Experimental Jetset Trash and No Star. Fucking. Incredible.
Actually, she took the kind medical professionals' hands into her.
These suction stories make me wonder if those Diva Cups were defective. Mine has a several tiny holes around the upper rim - which are there to help prevent intense suction. They also need to be kept clear during use - I whack mine against the side of the tub after I've rinsed it, holding the stem.
Oh wow, that brought back really old memories. I also got a feminine product wedged the hell up in me, but in my case, it was my first tampon as a preteen at summer camp. I had to pass the swimming test or be stuck in the kiddie end of the lake, and of course I got my period. The more I panicked, the more that thing retreated. I finally calmed down enough to dig it out, because I was not about to go to the emergency room. I learned an important lesson about staying calm and using those important lady muscles. Nonetheless, I was a little nervous about using the cup, but it seemed like the only good solution for a two-week trip through rural India. I knew I'd be lucky to find a toilet once a day, and said toilet would flush with a pitcher of water. The Diva Cup saved my dignity and kept the trip nearly stress free, vaginally speaking. It got suctioned to me once or twice at first, but I was always able to break the seal pretty quickly. Now I use it regularly and would recommend it to anyone.
@Apocalypstick Both the least romantic and most endearing part was that he included the receipt "in case it doesn't fit."
