Rollercoster morning

You know, if you're gonna name a birth control pill after an 80's synthpop band, you'd think it'd make sense to use a song from that band in your commercials.

It's been a very up and down morning. I am trying to turn my focus outward today. So, to that end, here are three good things that aren't directly about me:

1. I got wonderful medical news from someone I've been worried about yesterday. How often do you get good medical news?

2. My mom has been involved in an effort to make Fond du Lac, Wisconsin become a sort of an officially welcoming city, by means of a diversity statement that includes, among other issues, GLBT people. And there's a good chance it might pass! Will wonders never cease?

3. and, uh.... here, have a Muppet related thing.

eh? Really?
Also, it never fails to amuse that you guys have ads for prescription meds on TV. We're not allowed to be involved in our medication - if you ask for something, or, heaven forfend, have the gall to suggest what might be wrong with you, they say 'I'm the doctor' and then give you whatever is written on their mouse mat.

Really. It's called Yaz. My doc put me on it to keep me from going utterly insane premenstrually.

Our doctors aren't usually very fond of that sort of thing either. But I guess we have that consumerist attitude in the states, so there's a little bit of the patient being analogous to a customer. Some doctors feel that have to at least listen to your thoughts about things, or they may develop a reputation for being difficult and, like, lose market share or something.

I had to wiki this because I didn't know if you meant:

a.) Yazz
b.) Yazoo
or
c.) none of the above.

Turns out you guys call Yazoo Yaz, because you already had a band called Yazoo. We already had a milkshake called Yazoo, but that didn't stop them...

Yazz was the first live act I ever saw. *hangs head in shame*

Riiiight. I seem to recall that there had been this big confusing thing about that!
