I’ve been reading too much of Bridget Jones’s Diary – the writing style is fixing itself in my mind and I keep wanting to write entries that way. Can’t be good.

Got my hair done at ‘s house tonight. She rocks.

Adventures in Birth Control:
So I’m out of BCP’s. I am also out of prescription. My doctor is on vacation, and can’t see me for another two weeks. I need them in a couple of days. Dilemma.

suggests that I go to a family planning clinic, since they hand them out there to people. She gets me an address. Strange and I walk there after I’m done work. We feel a bit weird about the place, but go in anyway.

Turns out they were a pro-life information centre. How they got listed as a family planning clinic, I’d like to know… he started ranting about how the pill is going to kill me, and how I should just abstain because then I won’t get a broken heart. As if sex is what causes broken hearts… I am not about to go off the pill, whether or not I’m having sex has no impact on that decision. I was like a deer caught in headlights. Strange told me I was too polite… I don’t think polite is the right word. I was just in a state of shock and I couldn’t figure out how to get out of there.

When we got out of the place, I was seriously shaken and disturbed.

However, going to strange’s place and having her do my hair and playing nintendo made it all much better.

    when do you need them?

    email me the kind and if i have them at work i will steal you a package..errm… take you one.

    although, i think we’re out of marvelon at the moment.

    i’m not at work again until monday. but i could meet you after work monday night and hook you up.

    email me and tell me where this fucking place was that was a prolifer place faking as a clinic. i’ll call around. see where i can report them to (shit like that makes me insane).

    two amazing places you might want to try are the Bay Center for Birth Control. or the Hassle Free Clinic. I can hook you up with numbers and locations for them tommorow.

      Okay… if they’re close to downtown, that’d rock, unless you can get stuff for me. Otherwise I may go to a walk-in clinic on the weekend or something.

      I don’t blame you… it’s not like they said it in the phone book or anything. Creepy freaks.
