Famous last words

Last night I thought to myself, "I don't think I'm gonna experience the clomadness! Lucky me!" This morning La said I looked like a princess and I about ripped her a hole in her head. Just now I walked into the theater to see a show by La's theater company and the house manger confronted... Continue Reading →


Words I’ve Had to Teach Auto Correct

 Some I would have expected:spermiesdexemethesoneTTCIUIMetforminOPK Some, I was more surprised by:spermovulate (although ovulation, apparently, was there)inseminationovaries (penis and vagina were also not in there) Still others were shockingly already in the autocorrect dictionary:Clomid I have also taught my phone to capitalize Texas Ranger. In other news . . .got the call back (yes, I willed it into existance/made enough...

Clearly, I am a product of a digital age because I have not a single modicum of patience.
