Oh man. I haven't gotten my period in 6 months (since I got my IUD), but this ad is so damn good it almost makes me miss it.

NEKO. NEKO, YES. ALWAYS. RIGHT NOW.
"Yes there are things that I'm still quite sure of:
I love you this hour
this hour today
and heaven will smell like the airport...
but I may never get there to prove it."
GUH my heart.
I'm kind of obsessed with her. I just saw her in concert for the third time last week, and she keeps getting better and better. Also, FREAKISHLY beautiful in person. She looks like some sort of angel from space.
@aphrabean DO IT. Pretty much every list of qualifications for "you will only look good with a pixie cut IF" does not apply to me. I'm 5'10", size 12, not particularly delicate facial features... I hacked off all my hair into a Michelle Williams pixie last August and holy shit I look so good. I've gotten so many compliments, and I feel so damn stylish. Go to somebody who knows their stuff, and never look back. Trust me.
My best friend is a nanny to twin 2-year-olds, and she was very excited when I passed this along to her.
(additionally, John Mulaney is maybe my favorite person, and "I'mma PUSH him" still makes me laugh hysterically EVERY TIME.)
@tegrr Oh, I certainly believe that there are good boy roommates out there! I just didn't happen to have them back when I found myself living with boys. And I was so excited, too... then it just devolved into a bunch of dirty dishes and unpaid bills and "OH MY GOD WHY IS YOUR GIRLFRIEND SO ANNOYING".
...I think that my living alone now is probably the best thing for everyone.
This post just might be my entire life summarized.
Also, in my experience, boy roommates really are more trouble than they're worth. Especially when they're banging people that annoy you.

Melis, your words delight me, and I wish you the same amount of delight on this your day of birth!
Just wanted to say that I had my Mirena put in a couple of days ago, and the decision was fully inspired by this article. I went to my OB/GYN and told her that I'd done my own research and wanted an IUD, and she said, "Then you've been doing the right research!" She has a Mirena too and loves it, so she was super gung-ho about giving me one.
Insertion took all of three minutes from "speculum" to "putting my pants back on", and only hurt for about 5 seconds. Teensy bit of cramping for the following couple of hours, but absolutely no other issues since.
I have named this magical little doohickey Cecile (after Cecile Richards), and I hope that she and I will have many happy, lightly-menstruating, baby-free years together.
