Adults Need a Nap Time Too...

I really, really want to take a nap right now. But I can't because I am in that age range where it is not accepted. If I was a kid or an old person I'd be set to go, but since I'm in my 20's I'm expected to be awake during "normal hours" like an "adult" or whatever. I don't know, I stopped listening.

But I need a nap time occasionally! I would even curl up under my desk and nap there... seriously. Though I'll never be this cute while I sleep.


(And yes, that was just an excuse to show a picture of a kitten. It's so cute!)

I think that naps are really underrated and could help solve problems.

Scenario: Angry boss yelling at everyone and acting like an ass hat.
Solution: Nap time. A chance to relax helps calm nerves. You can't be an ass hat when you're feeling chill.

Scenario: Employee is nodding off at their desk. Productivity goes down.
Solution: Nap time! Wake up feeling refreshed and ready to work (or get on tumblr)

Scenario: Mother about to flip shit because her kids are driving her crazy.
Solution: Nap time!!! For mommy and kids. Everyone will feel better when they wake up.

Nap time can solve so many problems! I say we need longer lunch breaks so we can get nap time in there. I would be way more productive anyway.

Unborn Babies Are Pressuring Me

Seriously, stop pressuring me babies!
Don't you like me?

It seems like over half of the women I know either have a kid or are pregnant... and it puts a lot of pressure on me!

I don't know if it's because of my age that this is becoming a large part of my life or because it's that time of the year. Either way, I can't say that I like it. Don't get me wrong, I'm happy for my friends that are going to have kids, but it puts pressure on me to join the "get-busy-have-babies" club. I do want to have kids, but I feel like my inability to get knocked up right away makes me inadequate. I think my womb is rebelling and refuses to conform... or that's an excuse anyway.

Besides that, I thought makin' babies was supposed to be statistically difficult. Each month, a woman has an average of a 15-20% chance of getting pregnant. Those aren't the best odds! So why is everyone around me getting preggers now? I'll tell you why... conspiracy. It's all a conspiracy to make me feel bad about wanting to hold on to my peaceful childless freedom, nightly margaritas and wonderful, wonderful sleep-filled nights.

Well, fine! You win! I'll just have to have lots of sex, until I'm tired and worn out. And then because the chance is so low I'll have to keep doin' the nasty day after day, night after night. You know what? The trying part doesn't sound so terrible. It's the 18+ years after that will be the difficult part.

Why I Still Love Toys

There is something about a fun toy that can make me feel like a kid again. My nephew got a lightsaber for his birthday and my first thought was that I needed to get one so we could have lightsaber fights. He’s 5. What’s my excuse?
 I need one of these... for family time and stuff

My desk at work has a small collection of toys that I’m always looking to add to. I like things that are quirky and fun and my wish list has more toys than I'm willing to cop to.

And really, there's nothing wrong with that. I like things that make me happy. I like things that can save my brain from boring days sitting at my desk in the basement of my office building. There is nothing wrong with doing what you can to bring joy into your day. So if I need to be a kid for a few minutes a couple times a day, that's OK with me.

When Did We Lose Our Rights as Women?

Why is the government not considering women's rights when it comes to birth control issues? When did they decide that we all need to go back to listening to the men folk and letting them make decisions for us?

Recently Rush Limbaugh (aka Ass Hat) said some very f-ed up things. He basically called a woman (Sandra Fluke) a slut because she wants to use birth control. If you haven't heard about it yet I linked to an article here. Apparently he thinks because a woman uses birth control she has sex more than a prostitute. But if men want to be protected all they have to do is spend a couple bucks on condoms... seems fair. And by "fair" I mean bullshit.

I needed birth control to regulate my period. I did not take this as an excuse to have sex. Actually, I didn't have sex until 2 years after I started taking it. But I guess that doesn't matter to the Ass Hat. Any woman who uses birth control and requests assistance for the cost, even if it is needed for health reasons, is a whore.

Sandra Fluke is a student at Georgetown and was speaking about the issues with the lack of coverage. I listened to what she said and it's terrible the things women have to face.

It seems like Ass Hat wasn't listening to what she had to say and just wanted to throw his own opinion in there and try to make her sound stupid. I wonder when was the last time he got any? Must have been awhile... must be why he's so angry. I could go on talking about this for a long time and I'm sure I'll write about this again because it makes me furious.

I Love Me Some Cars

As I was driving around today I was thinking of the cars I would buy if I had the money. There are a few I would want most.

I first saw and fell in love with this car while watching Fast and the Furious

First would be the Dodge Charger. I really like the 1970 Dodge Charger, but not much is better than the new Chargers. The modern look is pretty hot... for a car that is.

 The Super Bee Version is nice but I'm loving it in black!

Next is the Shelby GT500. I love the stripes. Just looking at this car makes me want to drive fast!

And, finally, the Aston Martin Vanquish. Not much is sexier than a James Bond car.
