it's ok, doodlebug.

the only compliment anyone in my family can ever think to give me is, "wow! you've lost weight!"

when i've never had a weight problem. have not recently gone on any kind of diet. perhaps lost 5 pounds or maybe i just had my period last time i saw them.

in the past year i have graduated from college, gotten a kickass start on my dream career, in a relatively high profile industry, moved into my first grownup apartment, and all they can think of to say is, "oh, you look so thin!"

fucked up, man.

Long-standing cob that is now reaching frustrating proportions:

I don't get why, when you do something - anything - different to your appearance (cut your hair, wear new clothes, do your makeup differently)...when you have any excess flesh whatsover, the first, FIRST thing people say to you is, "You look great, how much weight have you lost?"

ARRGHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!! Fuck off and die! No wonder I had a fucking eating disorder!!!

cob: women who would prefer to spray public toilets with their urine than sit their precious thighs on a clean seat. Note: I am not blaming anyone if the seat is already gross. But if you go into an airport restroom, and the seat is dry, grab a seat protector and just sit the eff down. Your pee will go where it's supposed to, and the seat will remain dry for she who follows you. You are not going to catch a disease. You are more likely to catch something from the door handle or the sink knob.

I feel your pain, miss jane!

cob: shopping for swimsuits. It's like volunteering to go to hell. I have a nice body but trying to pair tops and bottoms made me feel like a freak of nature! Tiny boob/wide hips, four stores and 20 suits later, I wasn't even all that thrilled to find a really cool swim out fit. And I don't even know how to swim, its just for hanging out in my friends hot tub, it was a day of extra special torture!

cob: Womens clothing being in stupid fucking sizes. Why can't we just have normally sized clothes, like men do. I know what my waist measure, and my hips, and my boobs. I do not know which stupid size this corresponds to and in which shop this changes. Argh!

cob: people who bring babies to gigs (ok, she put headphones on it) in fucking pushchairs. hello? it's an in-store gig. there's not enough space for people, let alone a pushchair that takes up twice as much space as a person. Have you not heard of babysitters?

NO FUCKING FREE TIME.

And no one, not my husband, not my friends, and DEFINITELY not my family, seems to understand that. Everybody bitches that I don't have time for them, and then tries to add shit to an already overloaded schedule. Here's a fucking idea, how about if you want to see me, you HELP with the chores/lawncare/shipping/bill paying/diapering/food shopping/car maintaining/housecleaning/laundry/supply buying/pet feeding/baby care/sewing/paperwork/website updating/craft fair preparation/trash, etc.?

Here's a thought. When I am finally done with all the shit I have to do, guess what? If I do all this without much help, I'm going to feel pretty free in doing what I want with my free time. If I don't feel like going to a thousand work/friend/family birthday functions a month, I'm not gonna.

You can be mad at me all you want. People have been mad at me my whole life, and so far it hasn't killed me yet.

cob: only having a computer to play my DVDs on, instead of a proper DVD player. Every once in awhile I get DVDs that don't work. This time, I got the first 2 discs of Queer as Folk from my library, and the second disc will play, but the first won't. Annoying!

total fucking strangers who pinch my arse in the middle of a crowd at a gig, spoiling the rest of the set I'm there to watch because I suddenly feel incredibly self-conscious and nervous and icky.

and it bloody well hurt too. for about half an hour.

phone companies who tell me my phone will be hooked up today, by 5pm. and that i have to be here for the hook up. then, when i call (using my cell) at 4:50pm to say that no one has been here yet, i'm told that it could be as late as 9pm, and that i don't necessarily have to be here. and then, when i get home near 9pm (after running errands), no phone. ggrrrrrr!!! i *hate* dealing with these companies...and i had even worse luck with the other big company in my city last year, so i'm not even thinking of trying them.

i'm not entirely sure, vesica, but the woman didn't say "we don't do X HMO," she said, "Your HMO doesn't cover that." very specifically. the question I ASKED her was more along the lines of whether they are a listed provider for me, and she said yes, BUT my HMO doesn't cover that service. weird.

(((((runningwestward))))) That's horrible! I was cut off twice today by cars as I rode the streets of Vancouver. Drivers have no respect for cyclists.

long drawn out cob: Planned Parenthood of New York. I support fully the Planned Parenthoods of other states, as well as their national apparatus. I am 100% in support of the group as a whole's causes, as well as their current plight in Bush Administration Amurrica. But the New York branch continues to prove its total asshattery.

For instance. I have relatively spotty health insurance, and a recent abnormal pap smear i need to see an actual gyno about rather than my lovely regular midwife. Seeing as I need somebody who I could conceivably go back to when/if i lose my insurance and the HPV/Cervical Abnormalities/Abnormal Pap Smears turn out to be recurring, I called up PPNYC this morning.

Only to be told, without asking for this information, that my health plan doesn't cover the diagnostics I need, and that I will be charged $250 for the procedure. Which I proceed to freak out about all day on both pragmatic and political grounds (i don't have $250 to cough up for this! also, my health plan covers infertility treatments and post-mastectomy breast reconstruction, not to mention screenings for every other kind of cancer under the sun -- but it doesn't cover CERVICAL CANCER SCREENINGS?!!!!!!!).

Only to come home from work, pull out all the HMO paperwork, and figure out that, actually, it should cover everything, considering it covers all necessary pap smear follow up labwork, and any other labwork or outpatient procedure deemed necessary by my primary women's health clinician. In the event that this escalates to a more invasive cancer treatment level, that would also be covered (if, of course, i magically was able to keep coverage).

I ended up cancelling my $$$ PPNYC appointment and calling one of the gynecologists my midwife reccommended as In-Network under my HMO. fuck you, planned parenthood. fuck you very, very much.

we now return you to your regularly scheduled concise cobs.

cob: the stupid traffic circles in vancouver
cob: stupid drivers who just blow through the above
cob: I was first into the damn thing on my bike
cob: drivers who don't pay attention to what's right in front of them
cob: drivers who procede to drive into what's right in front of them
cob: being hit by a van
cob: drivers who don't stop once they hit someone on a bike

Oh that's right I was hit by a car, pushed along, managed to stay upright and get out of the way, and they just drove away. I have the marks on my bike and bruises on my leg to show for it and I'm pretty sure they will have bits of my bike on their van too.

cob: posting cobs that make me sound all pitying and look at me the ever trying activist. I didn't mean it like that. My cob was actually meant to be that suddenly all these things have come flooding into my mind due to various things and its made me want to scream. That is all.

cob: Feeling very stressed out and powerless about capitalism, the destruction of the environment, the way women are still treated, and the amount of busties in debt/with financial difficulties.

I keep pushing my eyes back into my brain hoping that it will somehow dull the thoughts.

cob: shoe shopping with size 9.5 EE feet, in a small community, where it doesn't matter HOW much money you're prepared to spend b/c there's nothing to buy anyway.

cob: having to spend $120 CAD (plus taxes) ON SALE for a simple pair of black leather slides.

cob: they were the ONLY respectable pair of shoes in the entire store that fit me (excluding the retirement-home-style lace-ups).

cob: wasn't NAFTA supposed to increase consumer choices for Canadians? Lying sacks of capitalist pig shit.

anti-cob: at least I have one respectable pair of shoes now. I'll have to find something with a closed back before winter, though. Mebbe I'll just get them cowboy boots I've been coveting for 12 years. I could totally get away with it, being from a ranching region.

cob: inheriting the exact size, shape, and structure of foot from my flat-footed, high-instepped father.

anti-cob: my father's flat feet kept him out of the Royal Canadian Army during WWII.

cob: the Royal Canadian Navy took him instead.
