There is a new campaign that demonstrates just how prevalent abortions are and why it is an important right for all women. Go here to find out more about the campaign and you can see a few of the videos that women have recorded below.

August 2011 Watching

A little late due to the start of school and the fracturing of the fibula . . . and you can bet my watching lists will start decreasing during the semester! I think I may start a monthly theatre list as well as the reading and movie/tv watching.

Some good stuff here and if you care at all about music, I highly, highly recommend the Spectacle, Elvis Costello with . . . series. Also, Posh Nosh is the funny.

Broken – But in a Different Way

So, no, this isn’t another in a series of Ltl’s mental and emotional inventories. This is just a quick update that I fractured my distal fibula when I tripped and fell as I stepped off a curb and into a slight pothole. I spend the next three days hoping I’d just twisted it and it would get better, but the nature of the pain the the swelling finally brought me to see a doctor on yesterday. A quick x-ray and it was off to the Orthopedics department to be seen and fitted with a boot that I need to wear for the next 3 weeks (fortunately I can take it off to sleep and shower).

This has diverted much of my attention away from the first week of school, as well as being frustrating because I’d lost 5 lbs from the last time I was at the doctor’s and now I’m worried about gaining it all back since I’ll be doing considerably less exercise. But it could be much worse and I’ll just need to be more careful with my diet (which I should probably do anyway – not that I eat poorly, I just have problems with portion control).

So, that’s an update on the physical. Here, you want to see some pics? Click through. I’m not a big fan of pictures of feet so I’m not going to put them up on the main page. Continue reading
