Hmmmm. I don't see our sexuality as being a power we hold over men (or anybody - I don't see sexuality as being about "power" at all, if exercised appropriately, though it is a powerful thing in general), nor do I see it as the only real power women as a group have. Men are able to use sex to terrify and control women much more than the reverse. There are plenty of other ways in which we exercise power as a group or are able to do so.

I think religious morality on sexuality has evolved / is evolving / should evolve, and it's more about how men and women can both use sex in a way that is responsible, uplifting, positive etc. because sex in general can be extremely destructive and dangerous, but can also be one of the most amazing powers we as human beings have. There's no way religion can be at all relevant and not address this.

I've gotten soap in my eyes while washing my hair in the shower, but this is the first time I've done while washing my hands at work.

Fifi needs a nap.

Oh, he doesn't let me forget! He is unhappy if he's not being held 24/7. Don't get me wrong - I love holding him, but it's just the nonstop of it all that's tiring.

I love panera! I always get chicken noodle soup and a chipotle chicken panini. My bf likes their smoked turkey sandwich and the strawberry smoothie. Sometimes I think I should ask for an extra baugette, I really like it by itself and dipping it in my soup.

My husband's, FIL's, and BIL's bday are all in the next week or so. We usually go out for dinner with his family (10-11people), but my FIL typically picks a place that is over an hour away. I really didn't want to do all of that with a baby who likes to scream like a crazy person between 7-10 every night.... soooo I offered to host it at our house. It's saving me the stress of having to go out with the baby to a loud, busy, far-away restaurant, but it's also causing me to stress out about actually hosting a dinner party for his crazy picky family. His father is the "I like plain cheeseburgers" type. His brothers are the "I like meat" type. I was a vegetarian for 10 years. I am going with a menu that I'm comfortable with and I know my husband will like. If his family doesn't like it, they can starve and/or get the f out of my house.

I've never eaten at Panera.

Eating with a half numb face (just came from the dentist) is...amusing. As is putting on lip balm.

There is such a thing as a sheep placenta facial! I can't even.

Eh, it has that typical non-descript, inoffensive food that is the norm for chain restaurants. The ever-present balsamic dressing (sigh) is a dead giveaway.
Overly large portions as well.

Wow.

I can't stop thinking about that.

Too bad it's too gross to talk about.

I like my large portions of soup!

It comes in handy when you're at work and not feeling great.

Doesn't it feel like you're lips are 5xs bigger than what they really are?!

I went to the dentist last week, they were working on the bottom of my mouth, so they numbed both sides. I was talking with a crazy lisp, my bf thought it was cute, I was so not amused. I also couldn't eat for a little over an hour.

Exactly, I felt like I should look in the mirror and see a botoxed lip staring back at me.

I'm glad I ate when I couldn't feel anything, it's killing me now.
