cold blooded


So, I use (and am in lurve with) The Diva Cup.

As I’ve been a convert for about a decade now, I’m well past the ‘Eew, menstrual blood! Yucky!’ stage.

If you’re not there yet, feel free to take a moment.



I’m not the only one who had to get over the sight of blood.  Husband has had to endure too.

Husband:  Make sure you rinse the sink out really well.
Me:  It doesn’t really matter how well I rinse.  You can never really wash away all the blood.
Husband:  What do you mean?
Me:  Well, microscopic bits of blood get trapped in scratches in the tile, around drains, in grout, etc.
Husband:  Really?
Me:  Yup.  You’d better hope I never die an unnatural death.  Wouldn’t take a brilliant forensic scientist to find evidence of my blood in every sink, toilet and shower in this house.*
Husband:  Crap.
Me:  You’re so going to jail for the rest of your life.






* and yes, I knowthe large amount of epithelial cells in menstrual blood would give it away, but Husband doesn’t.


About Angela

My name is Angela. I am a 28 year old psych and criminology graduate, but I'd rather not diagnose you. I am a cuddle-slut. I can recite the entire script of The Princess Bride, (including accents) and believe that the meaning of life is contained within. Polyanna, commercials, and Oprah 'reunion shows' make me cry. I can whistle and hum at the same time, but I cannot touch my toes. I am an expert in both listening and talking. I look good in orange. I am a writer. I kick ass in Gin, Hearts, and Cribbage but I don't understand Canasta or Bridge. I can be heard singing Broadway numbers from my shower, and have dressed up as a viking princess, (complete with aluminum foil breast plate) The Phantom of the Opera, and a Ghostbuster for Hallowe'en. I have a bird named Bean. I have a brother named Adam. They are not related. I like vanilla body lotion, peanut butter, saunas, Jim Carrey, broccoli, pets,, Muppets, Kevin Smith, Corelle dishes, dry erase white-boards, Barenaked Ladies, Philosophy, the letter J, Harry Potter, picture frames, swimming, quilting, Michael Moore, genealogy, Raggedy Anne, tacky 50's tchotchke, 'Idiot's Complete Guide To' books, tweezers, feather pillows, polar dips, aquariums, Martin Luther King Jr., and Dr. Pepper. I don't like meat, gossips, cooked carrots, American Idol, mosquitoes, sweating, politics, public washrooms, tardiness, tuition, hunting, pat answers, pick up lines, brown bananas, cliches, pine scented air freshener, Kevin Costner, bacon, candied apples, pro-wrestling, humidity, and hypocrisy. Books I've read recently The Hitch Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy, The Dark Tower, When Nietzsche Wept, What's So Amazing About Grace?, Catcher in the Rye, Not Wanted On the Voyage, The Red Tent, The Little Prince, The Way the Crow Flies, Slaughterhouse-Five, The Poisonwood Bible, The Fall, The Knot of Vipers, Calculating God, The Chrysalids, Sick Puppy, Nineteen Eighty-Four, Franny and Zooey, The Brothers Karamazov, and jPod. I am slightly neurotic. No I'm not. Yes I am.

  1. Yeay! I use the SoftCup. Same idea. Less…shotglass-like, more shallow dish-like.

    Andrew calls it “the chalice”.

    “Isn’t the chalice full? Should you empty it?”
