On population control in rural India:
“If there is electricity in every village, then people will watch TV till late at night and then fall asleep. They won’t get a chance to produce children,” Mr Azad said. “When there is no electricity there is nothing else to do but produce babies.”
- India's Minister of Health and Family Welfare, Mr. Ghulam Nabi Azad

First: ATT thanks for finally getting my wireless internet situation resolved. I will pay you now.
So a while back a couple of friends of mine introduced me to the TV based guilty pleasure that is (the fact that it is still on means I am not alone in my fascination, and it is okay to blog my shame), The Bachelorette. When Gossip Girl is in reruns I randomly tune in to this train wreck. Fast forward to tonight, I had errands people - important ones, like buying clothes and toilet paper and spray on sunblock, so I missed the finale. Which is alright since I knew [redacted] would be on point - LIVE BLOGGING. I am in love with Dan and Brooke. Here's why:
8:22 Dan: Yikes. Dad asks “Are you in love with Jill?” and Kiptyn responds, “I’m getting there.” It’s not like he asked, “Are you almost done remodeling the kitchen?” Just say yes.
8:45 Brooke: It's pretty pitiful. He's like the representative for every guy that couldn't get it up and asked for a second chance. That's how you know it's not reality. Cause in real life, those guys are branded impotent for life. And then you tell your friends.
Seriously, Brooke is completely on target. That is a night out where over shots of tequila you share with the girls - he was too drunk, right? And they order another round and say, "Girl, have you ever been too drunk?"

5 goddamn years. 5 life changing years. 5 years filled with more experiences then I thought one person could manage.
Yes, today marks the 5 year birthday of cancer.
The first anniversary was a disaster. It spelled the true beginning of the end of the relationship I was in at the time. I was working and should have taken the day off. I thought my head would explode. I almost bought a new car. I got into a HUGE fight with a parent-in-law type person, because they were an asshole. I cried myself to sleep next to someone and felt so totally alone, I thought my sky was falling in.
Number 2 I took the day off. Let's not talk about how I spent that day, inebriated.
By the time the 3rd day rolled around I was better. I was getting ready to move jobs and planning a trip to London. I was dealing with the first major cancer recurrence scare, which strangely made the first bout's anniversary easier to handle. I realize that makes absolutely no sense, but somehow having a MRI scan that day brought me back to something familiar, and I felt in control. Leave it to me to need the hospital to make me feel better. Most people would die to be back there and here I was handing out Valiums to the older ladies getting the same thing done and scared out of their wits. I was all, this shit is a breeze. Swallow this.
Last year, I don't even remember what I did that day. I was on vacation (being between jobs), but I don't recall needing to be out or to talk a whole lot about it. I do remember that I think I nearly forgot it was the day. Which in retrospect is awesome.
Now I am working, just returned from Paris and seeing where this adventure continues to take me. First stop, a party thrown at my favorite Hotel Bar, by one of my best girls. And I am just excited to catch everyone up on Paris. Screw cancer.
PS - Happy Anniversary Mom and Ed-Dad! What a difference 5 years makes. And to Peg - maybe our blue day isn't so blue? But know that I still miss Christopher too. Love you my family!
