Batman on IVF

Batman, in a recent episode of the new serise Batman: The Brave and the Bold (referring to a robot):

“Creating life in a laboratory is a dangerous game.”

Israel seizes Catholic Church assests over “tax issues”

Church representative hopes it is a mistake that will be overturned.

AARGH!! I feel so stupid!

Yesterday was the 13th anniversary of my aortic root replacement.  First time I ever I totally forgot it.

(I forget something:

“Hey, I’ve got a brain aneurysm”

Mary: “You’re milking that brain aneurysm for all it’s worth, aren’t you?”

Me: “Absolutely.”)

Well, we spent a lot of money on a very small amount of ice cream at Cold Stone Creamery (Bruster’s just went up a bunch of points in my book, but our local chain Sandy’s still has the best deal on “fancy” ice cream).

I guess we’ll celebrate “ICU Day” today.

Me.  A person pushing a big cushy recliner on wheels in case I fall.  Someone puhing my IV cart.  Two people holding me up on either side.  One of those people being Mom.  Walking loops around the ICU.  Fun times.

“E i in ou o y ou”

“What’s he saying?”
Doctor “Remove the respirator, so he can talk.”

“But he can’t breathe.”
Doctor: “Let’s try.”

[respirator pulled out–very painfully]



“If you don’t go to the bathroom, we’re going to have to put in a catheter.”

“Leave me alone to go by myself, and I will.”

“I don’t understand what he’s talking about.  He keeps saying he hates this country, something about privacy?”

“Oh, he’s saying he doesn’t understand why a woman can have an abortion but you won’t let him go to the bathroom by himself.”

“I’ve never seen someone on morphine quoting Aristotle.”

OK, Evidence finally materializes on Sotomayor’s position on Roe.

I’m still holding out hope that she could be moderate enough to swing the other way when she gets on the court, but evidence has finally materialized documenting Sonia Sotomayor’s support for Roe v. Wade.

Carrie Prejean: Miss California no longer

Carrie Prejean had her crown removed.  The blogosphere is having a field day blaming the gays, and saying she lost her crown for her support for marriage, etc.

She lost her crown because, as Miss California, she has been doing too many unauthorized TV appearances, and she has been missing events she should have attended in her role.
