The horses were cool and all, but this was a definite improvement.
Perception vs. Science
The IUD and implant are the most effective forms of contraception, yet most women thought it was abstinence and the pill. The latter are effective when used consistently, but they usually aren’t. In contrast, the IUD and implant leave little room for human error.
Some of these misperceptions are caused by doctors/the medical establishment itself. There are lots of doctors who won’t recommend the IUD unless you’ve already had kids, for example (there’s no medical reason for this, to be clear).
I sought an IUD *before* I’d had PIV sex. The doctor I saw was like “uh, if you haven’t had PIV sex, I can’t give you the IUD.”
The next doctor I saw laughed forever and was like “uh…. strictly not true.”
The medical establishment, everyone!
You may think you’re looking at photos of beautiful undersea invertebrates, but these delicate beauties are actually models made of clear, coloured, and painted glass. Leopold and Rudolf Blaschka, a father and son team of master glassmakers (previously featured here), painstakingly created these extraordinary glass models of invertebrate animals (jellyfish, snails, sea anemones, corals, hidroids, starfish, sea-cucumbers, squid, seaslugs and bivalves) from the mid 1800s until the 1930s.
Photographer Guido Mocafico visited the natural history museums which still house collections of the Blaschka’s work, including Harvard University Herbaria, the Corning Museum of Glass/Cornell University, and the Natural History Museums in London and Ireland, in order to create a marvelous series of photographs celebrating these exquisite models. He set the pieces against dark backdrops and carefully lit them to emphasize their different colours and textures.

TIME TO LISTEN UP! I get a lot of asks from people who have Trichotillomania, dermatillomania, nervous habits, nail biting problems and anxiety issues that make them harm their body in an effort to relieve stress. If you do any of those things, you should be paying attention to this post.
This is not a cure, this is a way to help you keep your hands busy.
Remember, idle hands pull strands!!
a spinner ring is a two part ring. The base band and the free spinning band. You can put it on a finger while you’re reading and have a free hand and keep that hand busy by spinning it with your thumb, or you can use both hands. It really helps keep your hands busy.
This ring cost me 12 dollars at the Trichotillomania Learning Center site.
Go do yourself a favor and get one- it has helped me so much.
I wish I had an eye for interior design, although that couch really doesn’t look comfy….
a continuation of this.
MISS OFFICER AND MR TRUFFLES coming soon this Summer maybe not.
Just in case anyone has missed the amazing Miss Officer and Mr. Truffles phenomenon…
lemonteaflower, the amazing artist that started this all, has a Miss Officer and Mr. Truffles tag with a very neat collection of fan art that has been created so far. She also just released a t-shirt that I am going to buy after I finish this post.
Sean made the most perfect theme song ever.
And if you haven’t seen Eisu’s video, well, you better go watch that immediately.
This whole thing has been pretty incredible. A positive movement that spread throughout tumblr like wildfire. No negativity… just love, support, and an adorable crime fighting duo. These are the kinds of things that get people through bad days. Myself included. My sincerest gratitude to all involved.
all of this is amazing
Reading things like this makes me happy.
