Yes, I call the shower my Thunderdome. It’s the place where I go to battle it all out in my head. I’ve been known to spend almost an hour in there sometimes, and you know what? I love it. I just love the water, I love how it’s like a dim, wet, warm closet, and I also love that I’m usually alone in there (unless I leave the door open and my 100 lb pit bull decides he’d really like to stick his head in and drink from the shower head). I mean, of course, there has been more than one occasion that I have been so wrapped up in my head while in the shower, that I get out and realize I haven’t washed my hair, or a certain part of my body, or done some other important thing that the shower was kind of invented for. I could feasibly write a love letter, several pages long, to the shower. However, what I don’t love about it is all of the crap I have to do in it in order to be “ready.”
Don’t get me wrong, I can be in and out of the shower, makeup-ed and ready to go in 10 minutes max if I need to. But, if I can take my time, believe me: I will. But sometimes, I have to take my time, because I have to wash my hair and shave. I usually try to alternate between shaving and hair-washing days, and the fact that I have to schedule this irritates me. Don’t even get me started on shower sex (it can’t be spontaneous, I need to be pre-showered where I do all my necessary things – he has to give me 15 mins before he comes in). The fact that it takes me 10 minutes to shave my legs (I’m not that tall but I am that afraid of nicking myself) blows my mind. Then when I …
Recently in London, the Fawcett Society, which is the UK’s leading campaigner for equality between women and men, held a throwback protest. The Society organized hundreds of demonstrators to hit the streets of London wearing rubber gloves, headscarves and full-skirted frocks to protest against government cuts which they say are hitting women disproportionately hard and risk setting the battle for equality back decades. Similar rallies in other cities, including Coventry, Bristol and Manchester, are said to culminate in “tea parties.” Even in Oxford, a 1950s-themed “flash mob” is to take place: the most committed participants were urged to come in handcuffs with which they can chain themselves “to the kitchen sink.”
OK. Whew. So, I’m all for protests, and actually I’m for the 1950′s-themed look. It sends a good message. I also get that the Fawcett Society is trying …
Women played a key role in the presidential victory of Barack Obama, and the stage is set for this to continue into the 2012 fray. A 48% percent approval rating among women as of an October Gallup poll that showed Obama tanking in many other demographics backs this up.
So where does Michelle Obama fit into this?
First Lady Michelle Obama will serve as honorary chair of the 2012 “Women for Obama” initiative, which aims to gather support from women voters for the President’s bid for reelection next year. The initiative is a branch of the Obama campaign’s “Operation Vote,” focusing on targeting minority groups and other voters who traditionally align themselves with the Democratic Party.
In an email sent to Obama campaign supporters, First Lady Obama stated, “Today, we are officially launching Women for Obama – and I am incredibly honored to be serving as its chair. This is a special group dedicated to growing this campaign from the ground up. Because we know better than anyone that movements for real and lasting change have got to start at the grassroots – and they’re sustained by the relationships we develop with one another. Together, that’s what we’re going to do – build relationships with supporters, new and old, and grow this campaign – one woman at a time.”
I know that the decision …
