There’s a Doctor Who coloring book that will be released the day before my birthday. I know what you’re probably thinking. You’re probably thinking, “What kind of person would be excited over a Doctor Who coloring book?” But that’s not the question you should be asking. You should by asking, “What kind of person wouldn’t be excited over a Doctor Who coloring book?” If you’re just figuring out that I’m a weird fangirl, then you’re clearly late to the party.

I moved the non-NSAID medicine for pain to early afternoon. If I fall asleep before 4 or 5 in the morning, then that may have to be my one dose of medicine for the day. At least if I can take it once during the day, it will give me a little break, a little relief.  The orthopedist1 did call to say that it was okay to discontinue the Pennsaid. I wasn’t exactly asking permission when I let him know about my going off of it. I wasn’t going to start taking it again if he protested. I have to do what’s right for my health and that medicine definitely wasn’t. But it is nice that he’s cool with it.  I’m still annoyed that he kept the diagnosis from me, but it hasn’t exactly been long enough to get over it.   or someone on his behalf ↩

Do you believe that gender roles and gendered play1 should be strictly enforced in children? Or should children be allowed to play with toys that they are most comfortable with, even if those toys are traditionally associated with the opposite sex? Do you think that what kids play with as children impacts their views on gender identity, sexual orientation, and/or overall equality as adults? Dolls for girls. Cars for boys. ↩
