Fun while dodging contractions....

Yes, Yes, you read the title correctly. The doctors seem to have officially declared me "full term" and won't stop the contractions anytime soon. Thankfully, they aren't completely regular, but there have been a few that I'd label "biaches" simply because they were very uncomfortable. In the meantime, I'm finding ways to distract myself.

The other day I went to Chris's site, and read his post on the top ten trivia tips about Rude Cactus, and learned that tradition allows women to propose to Rude Cactus only during leap years. Then, I went to Mr. Big Dubya's site today, and learned that the condom was originally made from Mr. Big Dubya. As disturbing as all of that may seem, I decided to see for myself what the top ten trivia tips about Two Pink Lines was...
