On A Pie for the American People

My uterus DID vote for me! If Mitt wins, I claim no control over what my uterus does, because that result would just shut that whole (brain) thing down.

On In Case You Missed It: Downton, Swift

The Romney ad that came before the preview really tripped me up and changed the whole tenor of things for me, even though I realize he has nothing to do with the preview (OR DOES HE). Romney, restoring life to early 20th century aristocracy? He approves of Shirley McClaine? Romney and public broadcasting?

On Talking the Talk

@C_Webb Ah! I am such a fan of encouraging teen girls to learn how to orgasm on their own. This is one area where Taylor "Racoon-eyes" Momsen and I agree: ladies need to become comfortable with their sexuality and what makes us get off before we have sex. http://articles.nydailynews.com/2010-12-10/gossip/27084057_1_taylor-momsen-gossip-girl-music-video

On One Afternoon in Williamsburg

When I saw the title I thought this was going to be about Williamsburg, VA, and I got excited. Then I realized it wasn't, and I got less excited. Then looked at the whole post and got excited and happy again!! What a roller coaster of emotion you just put me through.

I got to be a teen sexual health educator to a group of rowdy teens this week (my career goal!) and it was amazing. I fielded questions about period sex, how a lady can tell a man how to please her, and yeast infections. IROCKEDITandILOVEDIT.

Also, I am going to the Burlesque Showcase: Poles and Drag Edition tonight at Sisters in Philly - any 'pinners going???

Thanks, everyone!

@faintlymacabre I am looking for local groups, but I sadly live in a relatively small city where resources are scarce/not online. I am going to try to get involved with some ESL programs (I have taught ESL, but not to Spanish speakers), and see if I can do some kind of language "exchange."

@harebell I should have added that I took through intermediate Spanish in college, but with a so-so grade, and that was several years ago. It sadly just never "stuck," mainly because I never used it past class.

@whateverlolawants I have heard about those schools in Ecuador! Sounds cooool! And I think I will check out Learn Spanish the Easy Way.

Thanks for all of the resources, everyone! I will likely check out all of them. I am pretty determined (I'm going to nursing school for community health nursing - Spanish will be a great language to know), so hopefully some combo of the above will get me to where I want to be without formal classes or going to Spanish-speaking country.
