Yeah, so the past week was just a big pile of suck. Lots of hours including 3, 9+ hour shift in a row. And well, I don’t really want to talk about it. I’ve bitched. I’ve moaned. I want to put it behind me.
But I haven’t posted in like 9 days, so I figured I’d post something. So I’m going with the above disclaimer, an announcement, and something trivial.
In case you don’t read the pregnancy blog (don’t blame you, it’s not what you’re here for), follow me on twitter, or have me as a friend on facebook, I figure I should announce this here as well. I know I was going to try to keep the non-mental health related pregnancy crap off this blog, but well, humor me.
Somehow we beat the incredible odds and it seems this third and final addition to the family is indeed a girl. I’ve known since Wednesday, I’ve seen the ultrasound, I’ll believe it in 19ish weeks when the baby is born and sure enough there are no dangly bits. My husband, though, is over the moon. So yea!
Also not mental health related is this:
So I’ve read all the Harry Potter books and I’ve seen all the movie released thus far, and I have to wonder about something in the deadly hollows… In the beginning of the book/movie part 1 when they are rescuing Harry from the house by disguise themselves as him blah blah blah and one of the Weasly twins (hell, even their mother can’t tell them apart) loses an ear to a curse… Ok, here is the thing, if muggle plastic surgery can fix (well replace) that, why can’t magic? And if magic can’t for whatever reason, why not a muggle plastic surgeon? I mean, it’s an ear. That part of the ear, anyways, is mostly cosmetic. Hell, when I was little in the 80’s a knew a boy who was born missing an ear and the doctors took some skin from here and some from there and made him one. I’m not saying it was perfect, but it was an ear. Granted, in the book they do have bigger things to worry about, but with modern magic/medicine, should a missing ear really be on that list?
OR did they actually fix it in the book and I just missed it?
There is also the possibility that it got fixed after things had settled down, but if I remember correctly, they made it sound like it was an unfixable thing.
When does Harry Potter take place anyways? I know it’s modern enough that the Dudley got a computer for his birthday in book one, so it should be modern enough that the term “modern medicine” should apply.
