Bisexual Species: Unorthodox Sex in the Animal Kingdom: Scientific American

This could have gone in my last post, con­sid­er­ing Porter’s life ;-) Thanks to Scott Bragg for the link. Bisex­u­al Species: Unortho­dox Sex in the Ani­mal King­dom: Sci­en­tif­ic Amer­i­can … as many as 1,500 species of wild and cap­tive ani­mals that have been observed engag­ing in homo­sex­u­al activ­i­ty. Researchers have seen such same-sex goings-on in both […]

De-Lovely

Sam and I just fin­ished watch­ing it–the 2004 Cole Porter biopic/musical. It was, absolute­ly, De-Love­­ly and Delight­ful and every oth­er pos­i­tive adjec­tive you can think of!

Free love? […]

The Girl Is Better! And More Reading

That’s a relief. I was get­ting quite wor­ried. She spent most of the week­end sleep­ing or look­ing like a zom­bie, eat­ing only what Sam could coax into her, and using heat­ing pads. I’m start­ing to think that we should accept the offer to refer her to a pain man­age­ment doc­tor if only to have something […]

Explosions Over, Yay

I don’t like loud hol­i­days. I get ner­vous about all those explo­sions. There were ran­dom fire­works going off dur­ing the day today, too. At least they fin­ished ear­li­er last night than they do on New Year’s Eve! My baby girl is hav­ing a bad flare :-( She was going to a Braves game with friends […]
