This is an example of how my brain [doesn't] work: Yesterday I decided to test the water pressure in my shower (I never use it -- it's never had enough pressure to warrant use -- I just bathe instead), to see if the plumber, when fixing the leak, had also helped me out in that arena. I turned the water on. Yes, it's a little better. I turned it off.

I turned around, did several things in the bathroom, just tidying up, and then looked at the wall next to the shower. There was WATER running down it, just like the water that's been running down my windows on the inside lately from condensation. This was TERRIBLE. I'd get mold! The walls would crumble! The floors would dissolve! The paint would run!

It seriously took me two minutes of panicked wiping down of the walls to remember I'd turned the shower on. Stunning, really.

In other news, some links for y'all.

Make a womb! Send it to Washington! Support Roe v. Wade! (How many exclamation points can I fit into this post? Watch and see!) Seriously. How great and timely is this? Anyone in?

And every new baby needs one of these. Really!

Sweetie, you are a nut.

Love those shirts. Reminded me of a website I saw pre-election selling tees in infant/toddler sizes reading "My Mommy Wants A New President."

I'm just glad that I'm not the only one that does brain-impaired things. :-)

i like the womb thing. it gives me a reason to knit one. but when? and how can my severe iowaness get one there? *ponders*

Oh, the number of times my brain has gone on the fritz...I *so* hear you. Yesterday morning I spent a good five minutes looking everywhere for my watch, until I found that I was wearing it. Not quite as bad as trying to put both contact lenses into the same eye, but about on par.

And the Rabbit's advice makes me think of one of my favorite quotes of all time:

"Love is an attempt at penetrating another being, but it can only succeed if the surrender is mutual." -- Otavio Paz, The Labyrinth of Solitude (1950)

M. In NH, where it is currently 60 and raining. WTF?

Oh . It is now SNOWING. An hour ago, it was warmish rain. Every stupid cliche you have ever heard about the variability of New England weather? Not hyperbole. Argh.

Dude. 2 words. Shower curtain. :) Don't worry about the brain fart, it happens to the best of us. Have a happy bright sunshiny day!!!
