Randoms on a Saturday

19 Mar

I’m sitting here having got sucked into a Sex and the City marathon after the basketball game that I was watching ended, and it happens to be the one where Charlotte decides to befriend a bunch of lesbians and Miranda’s hair is just awful.  Miranda and Samantha were just talking to Charlotte about how maybe she should consider being a lesbian, and the whole time I’m watching Cynthia Nixon’s face, trying to find signs that insides she’s really wanting to scream out that she’s actually a lesbian.  She’s also one of the thousands of women in Hollywood having babies right now.  Only her wife had it.  Carrie’s hair looks awful this season, too.  I better step away from the TV, I would get sucked into this all day long and risk seeing the season where Charlotte has a miscarriage and I’ll be tempted to throw my remote at the TV.

And here’s where I tell you something and whine and complain about something you don’t already know, but Tim and I were talking this morning as we were waking up wondering how it is sperm regenerate themselves (the actual science behind it)  and how very few eggs we have in comparison.  I just looked it up and I haven’t found much on the science behind it just yet but I was reminded, yet again that they produce MILLIONS of sperm daily, and so of course, because we’re all masochists here, I had to look up the amount of eggs we have and then I found this: “At birth, a woman has around 1 to 2 million eggs. However, throughout her life, a woman loses eggs through a destructive process called atresia. At puberty, only around 400,000 eggs remain. Throughout the reproductive life span, from puberty until menopause, women lose about 1,000 eggs each month. Of these thousand eggs, only one is released.” Again, nothing you or I don’t already know, but it never fails to boggle my mind with the unfairness of it all. I mean, COME ON!  REALLY?!  Can we just get a collective F* You to science right now?  Why did we get the short end of the stick here?  Gah!  It’s no wonder we have such difficulties making this work.  Science is rooting against us from the very beginning.  Life is so unfair (cue the music).

In other news, I won my very first contest yesterday!  I won a t-shirt giveaway from One Mom in Maine (I love her blog) and I was so excited to see my name selected.  Plus, come on!  It’s a shirt from Maine that displays pride for my home state.  How perfect!  Maybe my luck is changing.

Oh good, Carrie’s hair is straight now.  I love how you can instantly tell what season it is by her hairstyles (and Miranda’s).  Ha!  Carrie just called herself a masochist.  Okay, on that note, I have to shut this off and go try and do something productive with my day.  Like clean.  (oh joy!)

Hope you guys are having a great Saturday.

    I’ve never really thought about it in terms of getting the short end of the stick with having a limited number of eggs vs regenerating sperm. Hmm. Although it probably *should* have occurred to me by now . . . Just love that denial. 😉

    Congrats on winning your first giveaway!

      Well, shoot. Sorry I pointed it out then, living in denial is so much easier!

    wow. science does suck. Lucky for me I went into the arts. That way I can brood about how much it sucks rather than deal with it.
    Or something.
    Wait. I do have to deal with it. I’m convinced I’m out of good eggs.
    So yeah. Screw science.

    I loved straight-haired Carrie. And I know exactly the episodes you’re talking about.

    BTW – the coffee porter I had was from a Guelph, Ontario brewery called F&M, but another Toronto brewery called Mill Street has it as well. If you’re ever up in this neck of the woods (in winter for F&M) they’re definitely worth a go.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog (mostly because it led me to yours)!

      Damn…I’m guessing I can’t find that here. But I’ll keep an eye out just in case. Thanks for coming by, yourself!

    Miranda’s hair was Ronald McDonald red for a while. Shudder.

    Intelligent design wasn’t so intelligent when it developed the way eggs have a stupid expiration date. They should multiply like sperm, too.

    Darwin, you have some explaining to do.

    I spent yesterday afternoon the same way! (watching S&C, not discussing sperm regeneration in case that wasn’t clear!) My husband said, “oh my god, this is your Seinfeld. You know everything that’s about to happen?!” He was incredulous and it was nice and relaxing to spend a mind numbing four hours with Carrie et al. Hope you felt the same way!
