On The Bestworst Guy

@Tammy Pajamas I don't know if "people who carry space pens" is a thing either. The joke is that when astronauts discovered that their pens did not work in zero gravity NASA spent a million dollars developing a pen that did... Whereas the Russians just used a pencil. This is not 100% true, a pen company Fisher developed the space pen. (Which I know because you know, I've been considering acquiring one)

On The Bestworst Guy

He carries a space pen on him at all times, as well as a pocket knife and a tiny flash light. He's tall, but not in a way where I think of him as a "tall person" and if he grew a beard it would have red patches in it. He's 30, and I'm 22. He was (and maybe still is) my mentor. He enjoys gadgets and science. And there is not actually anything going on with us. But we get beers, and hike and do projects. He has a girl friend. And he has to know. Right? And I'm caught between wanting to keep his friendship, wanting to strive to be more like him (I could be a person who always has a space pen in their pocket) and wanting to kiss him. And the way I feel is not his fault, and maybe what he likes best about me is the way it feels to be around someone who wants to be more like you and kiss you at the same time.

On An Ode to the Diva Cup

I love my lady cup. (Since when is Diva Cup the Kleenex of menstrual cups, I wonder?) This reminded me that I wanted to clean mine!

Can we please talk about where and how we store our Diva Cups when they are not in our vaginas? Like when you are traveling and about to start your period or in your home? The fabric bag it came in did not seem adequate? And plastic bags seems to find ways to get moist. What do you DO?

@noodge @Quinciferous This thread has been very helpful to me. Have you found a new home for your mom's cat?

On Chamberpots: A Resurgence?

I mean I'm vaguely interested in urban composting toilets. This is what it reminded me of. Also: Edith you are great.

On Horrible Things That Have Happened to Doctors on "Grey's Anatomy" Since 2005

I pretty much jumped ferry boat when George died, but I like re-watching the first seasons, it reminds me of what my life was like eight years ago. However, as someone who has watched an embarrassing amount of ER reruns I can't really justify my lack of patience with the high drama plot lines. Mark Green died of Brain cancer and then they brought him back in flash backs years and years later! Or the Episode where both Carter and Lucy are stabbed?
