Abortion or $500

A Texas legislator is proposing that pregnant women be offered $500 to NOT have an abortion. Republican State Sen. Dan Patrick thinks that the money might convince women to have the child, and then give it up for adoption. Now, while this may not sound like a bad deal, check this out: you'd think they'd give you the $500 so that you'd be able to afford living expenses during the 9 months, a bit better. But no! The money is paid within 30 days of the child being adopted. Well... I guess I can understand that there is a trust issue with giving out $500 before the child is born. I don't mean to sound harsh, but 9 months of carrying a child that I don't intend on keeping is worth WAY more than $500 to me. I know that sounds bad, but its true. Anyways. Read more here

Are You Hot Enough ?

Sick of being single? If you don't meet the sites standards, will turn you down. To get it, one must successfully get through several stages. Jason Pellegrino and Sean Cohen created the site, after being pissed off that there weren't enough hot people on internet dating sites. The slogan seems to be "NOT FOR THE AVERAGE SINGLE" and the home page reads:

Attractive, fit singles like you deserve an above average dating pool and the leading online dating sites just don’t meet that standard. Online dating sites are a great way to meet that future soul mate - much better than trying to make a connection at a bar or club. Yet, on most leading dating sites, it simply takes too long to sift through the swarm of photos, e-mails, and teases to find a compatible match.

That’s where comes in. We’re filling that long-standing void in the online dating industry. With our selective screening and voting process, you know from the start that our members will be much more compatible to your taste. As a HotEnough member, you get full access to our attractive clientele.

And to become a member at the site:

1. New members (registrants) must submit three photos of themselves at signup. These photos must include one full body shot. Only one professional photo will be allowed.
2. Submitted photos will be sent to our site administrators where they will be judged based upon whether the registrant appears well-kept and in shape.
3. If the registrant passes the assessment, he or she will be granted prospective member status.
4. Prospective members photos are then forwarded to Hotenough’s voting area where active members will cast their votes.
5. Once a prospective member receives 25 votes, he or she must maintain a score of eight or above to become an active member.

Washing Machine Moving

Recently, a family my boyfriend (and me, the helper) to move two washing machines in and out of two houses. If you've ever done this before, you know what a pain it can be. If you've never moved one before, keep in mind:

  • CLEAN THE BOTTOM OF THE DRYER!!! There's usually a lot of rusty, grimy, brown crap on the bottom.
  • Use a dolly. We used a really small one, but it still helped alot.
  • I haven't looked it up, but apparently you're supposed to pad the main part (where clothes go) from the bottom of the machine, when moving it. Towels, rags, and clothes are fine.
  • Make sure one of you is relatively tall- I'm only '5"4, but my boyfriend is about 6'. I don't think we would have made it up the stairs without someone his height.
  • MEASURE the washer and all doorways. We had to take off two doors at the 2nd house.
  • When going up, the taller person stands at the higher point, controlling the washer on the dolly, each time it goes down a step. Shorter person stands at lower point, lifting the bottom (inner) edges of the washer.
  • Drain as much water out of the washer & it's tubes as you can, before you start moving it.
  • It will probably leak somehow, while you're moving it and then once its in the car, depending how it's moved. We found that several hours after spilling brown crap all over new white carpet, it cleaned up really quickly with some kind of strong carpet cleaner.

Pee in a Bottle, Pass Your Class

If he left the room during his exam, he'd fail the class. Instead, he peed in a bottle in the corner of a room with 120 other students present. Now, it would be one thing if he was a trouble-maker trying to cheat by going to the bathroom. But this guy was in an accident that affected his bladder control and put him on crutches!
