On Oy With the Poodles Already

@Rookie (not the magazine) (not that there's anything wrong with that) If it makes you feel better about going to work, I don't think it actually is on Netflix Canada. At least not according to the search I just did on Netflix.

On Sweet Dee

@selyse Yeah, I was personally planning to just wait and ask about it when I went in for my pap test in the next couple of months, but maybe I will go sooner rather than later.

On Sweet Dee

@Azaz the Unabridged So I actually read this part:

"Dee had this weird dry skin thing on her nose that had been there all summer and kept coming back. She said she was was going to the dermatologist for it when she got back to LA. She texted me when she had the biopsy results a couple weeks later; it was skin cancer."

just as I was moisturizing the weird dry skin thing on MY nose that has been there for months and I definitely went and checked the end of the article to see whether she dies. Perhaps I should make a doctor's appointment...

On A Thing You Should Probably Read If You Use the NuvaRing

@adriana Yuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuup. You can see how that distracted me a bit from other stuff.

On A Thing You Should Probably Read If You Use the NuvaRing

@adriana I can't really remember. Leg pain was the one that stuck with me, because that is the one that I could see myself kind of ignoring or assuming it would go away. I think the other ones were more obvious 'something is very wrong' like maybe chest pain or shortness of breath. My doc also focused on some prevention things like moving around as much as possible on long flights and car rides and stuff. Again, talking to ones doctor is probably best because I don't remember it all anymore. He was also talking to me about other possible side affects of the pill I was on, and one of the other ones had to do with bloody discharge from my nipples and I was like "AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH" and so my memory of other stuff was not...great...

On A Thing You Should Probably Read If You Use the NuvaRing

@adriana At the very least her doctor can give her some information about what the signs of blood clots are, so in case there is a blood clot she knows what to look for.

I was briefly on a type of BC pill that had a much higher clot risk and my doc gave me instructions about what sorts of things should be a "get thee to the hospital NOW" sort of thing, which can make a huge difference. I think I would have been hesitant to ever go to the ER for leg pain if I would not have been warned about the risks.

On Internet Work and Invisible Labor: An Interview With NPR's Linda Holmes

I just had this moment of being super excited to see some crossover between The Hairpin and Monkey See and how cool and surprising that was. And then thinking back I realized that I am pretty sure it was actually Linda that recommended The Hairpin on a PCHH at some point. So thanks Linda!

On Ask a Dietitian: Salt Cravings, Workout Food, and Things to Eat When I'm Stressed

@Tragically Ludicrous Haha, yes. I actually find an apple and some cheese a really satisfying snack (or in reality, super lazy desk breakfast), but definitely not a substitute for pizza...

On You, Too, Can Make a Horrifying Cartoon Turkey Cake

@straw hat Yes, her cake looks really good! Appearance wise anyway, taste wise it might be... less good.
