I must really need a break if I'm reading a State Dept./Bureau of Political and Military Affairs document on the MANPADS Menace and I think of Gloria Steinem's classic essay If Men Could Menstruate.


We are both so so tired. Me, just in general. MoBob because he's working at DHL, interning at Search for Common Ground, studying for the TOEFL and completing his grad school applications. I would love to just spend this weekend asleep but I have to start thinking about packing for my departure especially as it's a cold weather trip. I want to look professional and stay warm, which somehow precludes the ability to stick to one carry-on wheelie bag. I Hate Packing.

Menstruating men... LOL - I really enjoyed that article. Himm... wonder what they would do if they had to get pregnant?

Every time I have been pregnant, I pretty much wished that it was my husband who was pregnant and not me. *sigh* If only the world was really fair, men would not only menstruate but get knocked up as well!!

PS: how on earth do u make ur internet links to other articles so neat? I really suck at this, so there by the curiosity.

LOL this one time an international student in my school and I got into an argument about TOEFL and ended up taking it to prove a point. He scored higher than I did. It was a major blow to the self esteem for I had always been proud of my linguistic capabilities up until that point.
