I'm heading back to bed.
Oh, gaakked from, well, everyone:
Better Personality Quiz
You are a WRCL--Wacky Rational Constructive Leader. This makes you a golden god. People gravitate to you, and you make them feel good. You are smart, charismatic, and interesting. You may be too sensitive to others reactions, especially criticism. Your self-opinion and mood depends greatly on those around you.
You think fast and have a smart mouth, is a hoot to your friends and razorwire to your enemies. You hold a grudge like a brass ring. You crackle.
Although you have a leader's personality, you often choose not to lead, as leaders stray too far from their audience. You probably weren't very popular in high school--the joke's on them!
You may be a rock star.
Cool! Wish I had the energy to be excited about being a rock star....
Also gakked from around:

Even thought I'm too sick to get properly pissed about it, I remember my mother telling me this story:
Back in the early 70s, my mother's physician suggested she get her tubes tied for health reasons and refered her to a surgeon. Said surgeon refused to tie her tubes because "it was against Catholic teaching," but said he'd give her a hysterectomy because that was okay. (A woman in her early 30s!) My mother hit the roof, my father hit the roof, her doctor hit the roof. They found another doctor who'd do it, she went to the not-Catholic hospital to get it done. They prepped her and were about to wheel her in (she's half-drugged by this point) and realized that they FORGOT TO GET MY DAD'S PERMISSION. So they held off until they found him (he'd gone to get coffee), which meant a half-hour delay. Almost 30 years later, my mother AND my father still rant about the absolute stupidity of needing "his" permission for "her" to get a surgical proceedure done. Even though this was medically necessary, because my mom's ovaries were involved people got really wiggy about it.
Can we please let the women have control over their ovaries? Thank you. Jebezus people. Read your fucking history. Birth control and abortion (up until "quickening") were perfectly legal when the Puritans ran the Massachusetts Bay Colony back in the fucking 1600s. It wasn't encouraged, but no one said boo about it. These were religious-fucking-fanatics. Puritans. I think that says everything right there.
Ooooo, maybe I'm feeling well enough for a little outrage.
