Milo has had a runny/stuffy nose since Monday early in the evening. He's now coughing. Ya'll I'm not ready this! He isn't either. My poor baby :(. Any tips from the parents out there on how to best deal with his cough? Thanks!

Caster Semenya is on suicide watch.

My heart just breaks for this young woman. She's been raked over the coals for something she cannot help. She has been the victim of world wide ridicule. It's just disgusting.

I think I'm developing an ear infection. Pity me :(.

I read about the big shootout that occurred here in Jersey City 2 mornings ago. They had little photos and bios on the 5 police officers who were shot. I recognize 4 of them. It's a bizarre feeling. Am fervently hoping for the recoveries of the worst injured. Officer DiNardo, however...with the severe facial injuries suffered his life will never be the same even if he survives in the days and weeks to come. It's just so awful.

It's bizarre having a crime that happened a 15 minute walk from the street where I grew up (and were my parents still live) be national news. My dad heard lots of sirens yesterday morning, and he wondered what was going down where. But yeah, 5 cops shot is considered pretty damned newsworthy. Hope they all recover. The one officer in particular is going to need some serious reconstructive surgeries to fix his face if he survives this in the end. Man.

Rant ahead, hopefully mostly coherent, I'm running on fumes these days...

This is just plain appalling and wrong. And offensive and infuriating, speaking as a FAT Hispanic who has a 16 day old baby. I was fully aware of the fact that I needed to be careful with my weight gain during the pregnancy. My weight fluctuated towards the end of the pregnancy because of water retention, but I basically gained 15 pounds in real baby and baby related weight. My baby was 7lb 9oz and I was negative 5 pounds from pre-pregnancy weight a week after giving birth. My fat ass carried a baby and he is FINE & HEALTHY, he scored 8 & 9 on the apgar. I made sure to eat when I was hungry (and sometimes that hunger was so fierce, I felt I could cut a bitch if they got in the way of me and food) and not abusive "pregnancy privilege" and go insane "eating for 2"--I cannot for the life of me imagine what I would have been like and gone through if I was trying to shoot for no weight gain, or how that would have negatively impacted my son. My doctor, bless him, never gave me shit about my weight or weight gain and when I needed to be put on hypertensive meds halfway in the pregnancy, he didn't pontificate about how it happened cause of my weight. These assholes are full of shit, and certainly aren't giving a real shit about these mothers and their babies.

After being up for most of the night despite myself, I crashed at 7am in the recliner and woke up around 1pm. I stretched when I woke up, and got a charley horse in my left calf. It hurt like a FUCKING GODDAMNED MOTHERFUCKER, ZOMG. Thank goodness [personal profile] fings was home, he was able to rub my calf for me as I whimpered and cursed in pain. I wish like hell there was a less painful way for my body to let me know I am low on calcium. I drank some calcium enriched orange juice and took some Viactiv calcium chews once I was able to walk, and made sure to drink plenty of milk today. I'm glad I can stomach the chews again, for a long while there, they were making me gag.

An hearty and robust FUCK YOU to all the assholes who voted against the civil rights of same-sex couples in AZ, CA, and FL. Oh, yes, and you assholes down in Arkansas who just voted against homosexuals fostering/adopting? FUCK YOU. Fucking SHAME on each and every one of you. I wish I could be more articulate than that right now, but I am too bitterly disappointed and disgusted by these fellow Americans of mine.
