Some More Stuff...

-When I found out I was pregnant, the Bad Time, I kid you not, nearly EVERY friend I had who was Pro-Life urged me to have an abortion. They said, "Oh my God, I never knew until it happened to you, that I would feel this way. You HAVE to have an abortion." This surprised the SHIT out of me. But, what surprised me even more was that EVERY person I knew who was Pro-Choice, the people I was SURE would try to convince me to have an abortion said, "Well, what do YOU want to do?" Including my Dad. We all know what I decided in the end, but seriously, isn't the odd? I mean, given the awful circumstances of my pregnancy, I'd have thought that the Pro-Choice people would be the ones who'd be all "GET AN ABORTION!" But, it turned out the opposite.

-When I spoke at that rally for Emergency Contraception, there were some women there with signs that said, "CUNT WARRIORS!" I was pretty pissed. I mean, come on PEOPLE! We're trying to PASS A LAW here! Now, I'm the first person to think, in many other situations, that those signs are pretty fucking funny. The word 'cunt' scares people, so it rather amuses me. But, there's a time and a place. And the time and place is Not. At. An. Important. Political. Rally. Sorry if that makes me a wuss, but why alienate people, you know? Anyway...

-"Shit! She's looking! Meeting adjourned. Act natural..."


-Zube Boy and I are having a creativity contest with our magnet words we got from a friend for Christmas. My sentence is on the left. His is on the right. I think he's winning.


-I give him two weeks. Maybe three. Tops. After that? He's history.


Edited to Add: The photo in this post might clarify what the little green guy is.

Ya, you never know how people will react when the poop really hits the fan.

What is that little green thing in the bottom picture? A sperm?

Minerva said...

Very illuminating comments from both camps - amazing how different a principle is from someone we love...*sigh*

And WHAT IS IT?

Minerva said...

oh, and perhaps more importantly, WHY is it outside??!!

Zube Girl said...

Heh! It's a frog and that's the entryway to my house. Usually, it greets people, but this year we've been bad at keeping the entryway clear of snow!

Zube Girl said...

Um, NOT a REAL frog! One of those silly ass lawn frogs.

Phil said...

I'm not surprised at all at the responses of the two "crowds". But, I won't say why I'm not surprised, because it might come accross as offensive/stereotyping to some :)

Better hope no one from PETA reads your site, cuz they'll be all up in arms about your cruel treatment of Percy the Frog.

He he he, we got the "motherhood" magnetic poetry set. The hubs quickly made "I would love to have sweet, lovely, wet, booty every night" *insert eye rolling here* Must be a man thing.

HeatherAnnieY said...

I would love to talk to you about your cause. I even got AIM just for that purpose. It won't connect. It's pissing me off. I've been on both sides of the issue, so I may have a more objective opinion than some. It would have been nice to be able to type back & forth about it.

Chickie said...

Damn, you have some serious snow!

Lisa said...

sorry Zube, hubby is totally winning the magnet game...

DelBoy said...

As usual, you have not failed to entertain me. And BTW, Z-Boy is winning hands down! :-)

dan said...

Um...Zube? I don't want to make any false assumptions here, so I'm trying not to read anything into innocent commas, but when you start off with "When I found out I was pregnant," and then clarify about WHICH time, were you trying to tell us that there is a Z-baby on the way (I hope, I hope!)???

PaintingChef said...

That is a HELL of a lot of snow! I would give my left breast for some snow...(not the right one though, that's the perky one...)

Psychobabble said...

mmm, sorry Z-girl, but I think the boy may be winning...

Bonanza Jellybean said...

If I had a band, I would have to name it CUNT WARRIORS after reading this. Nothing else would do. Can you imagine the CD covers??

Your cats were totally just having a party like in that Tidy-Cat Multiple Cat Formula commercial. All their hos are hiding under the couch until you're gone again. :)

Zube Girl said...

Phil- I KNOW! And I feel really bad because I kind of like frogs. AND I think he is responsible for gassing the gnome to death, so I sort of owe him, you know?

Crazylady- Haha! It is SO a man thing!

Heather- Hey! You could e-mail me. :-) Not real time, but better than nothing.

Chickie- Yep we do!

Lisa- Le sigh. I think you're right.

Delboy- No problem!

Dan- It is SO sweet that you guys are out there hoping for me. :-) Alas, not yet, though.

PaintingChef- My right one is the perkier one, too. Heh.

Jennie- Methinks you are right. :-)

Bonanza- That would be a great band name. It got me thinking that We Three Cunts would have been pretty damn funny. Heh.
