I just made a hanging file folder for every single country in the world. I'm poofed.

Speaking of "I'm poofed", my homies in New York should know that my friend Jesse Ferguson has his own one-man show at Joe's Pub on the 24th. Go see a fellow New Mexcillent! He is funny and talented and wonderful, and this is a big old deal. I wish I could be there.

Got acupuncted in all the right places today. My doctor rocks. She spends a good hour talking with me about my health issues before even starting the treatment. I haven't seen one Western doctor who's taken more than 5 minutes to discuss the problem, let alone really listen.

This recent speech by Bill Moyers really affected me. It's well worth reading all the way through. The "rapture index," my friends, is currently at a toasty 152. SWEET! Interestingly, it looks like...what's this? The rapture index was at its record lowest in 1993! Why, who was President then? OH RIGHT!!! A burning in hell Democrat. Innnnterestink....


I love our naturopath. She totally listens, for as long as you want to talk. Also, she does acupuncture. Western docs could learn so much from alternative practitioners. That's also the reason I have a certified nurse midwife as opposed to an OB.

Yes, western med has its place, and I know I am really enjoying my course in herbal therapy. It has been a blessing to my family and one both of my girls will take before they leave home and get married. There is so much we can do for ourselves if we just will.

From the Rapture Index: "34 The Antichrist: The EU is looking a new President." (sic)

bwahahahahahaha! I love people who are scared of the EU. They're funny and creepy at the same time.

Not to be the devil's advocate but my doctorb r0x. If you would only just stop talking about it and go see him!.......Adri_A_na!!

I also think that there's another side to that coin and that's most patients don't care to know so doctors get into that habit. It's up to you the patient to set the standard and if the doctor won't comply then it's up to you to explain to the doctor why you won't be seeing him/her again. We're in a capitalist society, the consumer drives it not the provider. However, consumers just don't get behind the wheel often enough.

And another thing. I've run across some truly terrible Eastern ideas. So the whole East vs West arguments really don't hold any water no matter from which side you argue...
...Let's just stop degrading women.
