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.
