So, what were we talking about? Oh right. Before the weekend rudely interrupted us, we were discussing how baby showers alone could suck all the positive energy out of our lives, and: Which would be easier?: If all of our pregnant girlfriends left the country or if they stayed and we went. Because, right now, clearly the nation isn't big enough for us and them.
At some point I'm sure I'll go off the deep end and exploit all of the celebs who are fifty and had their twins "naturally". Yeah, we know. Their noses are natural. Their boobs are natural. Their tans are natural. Their hair is natural.
Of course if you ever saw a picture of them from high school, (somewhere between five and thirty years ago-depending on which set of dates you believe), you'll compare it to present day photos and wonder if somewhere over those five to thirty years she went through the witness protection program.
Nowadays she looks younger, thinner, blonder, taller, and perkier (all over). But it's all natural as are her twins who happen to be of a completely different race than her or her husband.
She herself, and her family, are what scientists call "Genetically Impossible"
No, we'll save the tabloidy stuff. This week we're going to be chatting about real life infertility news:
"Infertility tourism" (Seeing the infertility sights, I guess) Or
The female prisoner in Australia who petitioned the court to continue her IVF treatments in jail (You won't believe what she's "in" for)
Or the IVF teens who were part of a study to see if they're like "normal" teens. (The frozen embryoed teens probably like the cold more than "normal" teens.)
Listen, I gotta go. I write my posts the night before and now I have to do my usual pre-Monday morning rituals: 1) Get my work clothes ready for the morning. 2) Prepare my lunch to bring to work tomorrow. 3) Cry myself to sleep because it's almost Monday again.
I'll talk with ya again tomorrow.
