On Interview with Dr. Susan Robinson, One of the Last Four Doctors in America to Openly Provide Third-Trimester Abortions
Dr. Robinson - I'm in awe of your bravery and complete compassion. You are an amazing woman.
Jia - You nailed it, lady.
@Khrushchev Agree so hard on Primanti's! WHY does everyone insist that it's a Pittsburgh must-try? Dirty space + not very good sandwich = ???
@Hello Dolly My parents moved there a year ago, and it's SO MUCH more fun than I expected! Awesome food too, check these out if you can:
Point Brugge Cafe - Belgian food (and amaaaaazing mussels!)
Spoon - A more upscale place with awesome goat cheese cornbread muffin things
Soba Lounge - Asian fusion with cheap delicious cocktails
Pamela's - BEST pancakes! There are a couple locations.
Toast - My favorite place there! Great food with an upscale but casual atmosphere
Hope you have fun!
@Ellie ...I would say that that comparison is about accurate. I had mine out when I was 21, and it was not a good situation. I stayed with my parents for two weeks and had a lot of help, so that made things a lot easier. Definitely make sure to tell your doc if you know of any pain meds that make you sick (I didn't realize that Percocet makes me vomit, so THAT was a fun situation right after surgery).
The good news is that six years later, I haven't had strep or tonsillitis once. So two weeks of agony for a lifetime of avoiding slightly lesser agony is okay with me :)
@faceifer DEFINITELY do it! I had allergy shots for three years (bees/wasps/hornets). I paid a copay for each visit, which I think was $10 each time. At first I had to go once a week, but that only lasted for six months. Then I went once every two weeks for six months, then once a month for two years. It was annoying at the time, but then it became really routine and not a big deal at all. Before I started I was the dead-in-sixty-seconds allergic type, and now I don't even need to carry an epi-pen.
One thing that I don't think the doctor stressed enough is that you will almost definitely react to the shots at first (sometimes in a BIG scary way!) - would have been good to know that before hand!
I grew up outside Boston, and love it SO MUCH. Seeing this makes my heart hurt.
On A Chat With Geoff, an Actual Ghost-Believer, in Which I Clearly Care About Ghosts a Lot More Than He Does
@cosmia Agreed! Any time I meet someone else in advertising I need to get the 411.
@meetapossum I had the same revelation! I watched it last Sunday and spent the rest of the afternoon extensively googling everyone in it (because, obviously). Also noteworthy: the voice of THACKERY Binx actually isn't the actor in the beginning/end! They dubbed it! Now I'm endlessly curious about what that guy actually sounds like.
I had a strawberry mark on my right butt cheek until I was about 13! 12 years later, there's no trace of it. I loved it when I was really little because my parents always made it seem like something unique that I should be proud of (leading to a lot of weird "want to see my birthmark??" offers as a kid), but I'm really happy it's gone now!
@RK Fire LIKE THIS SO HARD. Seriously, you are changing my life right now. Off to take a half hour shower with every bra I own.
