I saw a gyno about getting my tubes tied and she said that I was still too young and that I would need my husbands permission before even considering it.

My husband went in to get a vasectomy and he had an appt booked that day, no questions asked.

Do you see the issue here?

@hankg my aunt couldn't get a hysterectomy despite having menstrual difficulty, being over 40, and her mother died of ovarian cancer. Her doctor said that she might still want another baby. My aunt replied, we already had our oops baby. Still they wouldn't do it.

I keep hitting pay walls. If anyone has access and can get me this article, it would be appreciated.

Thanks!

You know what worries and baffles me? The number of people I see wearing scrubs in public who can't wear their mask over their mouth and nose. Or just not wearing one at all. If you're wearing scrubs, it's logical to me that you work in health care. So...do they not know better? Or do they not care?

My colleague and I used to have a pretty serious fruit exchange going on before the office was shut down. I come into the office today to find two donut peaches waiting for me. It made me very happy.

I'm laying on my couch, listening to the thunder and rain. I love thunderstorms for themselves but also because the city becomes extra quiet with fewer people out on the streets.

@nuala @ak yes, of course. I do try to let people lead and offer their pronouns. Maybe I'm overthinking it, but I always want to do better to be sure people feel welcome and seen.

I am sorry that you are still dealing with the emotions of it all. Words have quite the power.

@ak @nuala is there a better way to ask about pronouns? I don't want to put anyone in an uncomfortable position but I also want to be respectful. Do I then just wait for them to be offered? That feels like option three.

The efficacy of the vaccines even in delta-variant heavy areas is truly astounding! And these are *cases* not hospitalizations or even deaths, which are also drastically better results among vaccinated. Everyone *please* get vaccinated ASAP. vox.com/22602039/break…

Dear Brain,

I appreciate you wanting to process recent events. However, is there any possible way you could not do it at 3am?

Xoxo,

Standing in a clothing store waiting for someone. At least 5 people have come in not having a mask with them. How, this far into the pandemic, do you not have a mask at all times?

There is always the ALA, I'm in the U.S. but I'm sure there are international organizations too. The ALA website has a directory is site broken down by topic. Usually there is a forum of sorts to ask questions, discuss ideas. Some you might have to be a member to access.

Hope these help.

@Sylvhem are you looking for one that covers a specific topic or just libraries/library science in general?

So...I requested items from our warehouse for the archival collection. They messed up the order 2 out of 2 times. I contacted the person who manages this and their reply, mistakes happen. Sure, of course they do. But so far they have a 100% fail rate. We're okay with this for the regular customers, you know the ones that pay us? Because that's kind of how it's coming across.

@mike but then the rest of the day is free! I like getting my tasks done first thing so I have the rest of the day to do what I want.
