The Ordinary Adventures of Laurel


Hey there. :) In this blog, I will use emoticons even when trying to maintain a professional serious attitude. You guys need to go ahead and accept that. :P
^See, there I go.

I'm a college student from sunny Florida! I'm finishing up my AA in the next couple of semesters(with any luck!) then starting the training process to become a doula. I love babies, as should be evident by the hundreds of baby pictures I reblog.

Hopefully, I'll one day be able to post pictures of my own babies...if I'm still using Tumblr when I'm old...
Who am I kidding, of course I'll still be using Tumblr when I'm old!

I'm avidly pro-life, so be prepared to be for all that may entail when choosing to follow or unfollow.

I'm a cat person.
I have a ton of food allergies.
I love reading.
I like Dr. Who.
Edward Monkton is a wonderful person and one of my heroes. If you look him up and don't fall in love with him, I'll send you a personal cyber hug and/or look of contempt.
My boyfriend's name is Jared, and he is even more wonderful that Edward Monkton. I'll try to keep the mushiness to a minimum.
I'm simplistic.
I'm somewhere in the spectrum between Catholic and Agnostic.
Insult any religion around me(with the exception of the Westboro Baptist Church) and you will surely earn a grudge so cold you might be at risk of hypothermia.
I'm very tired as I write this.
I have a Schnoodle named Chowder. My parents chose the name. I wanted to name her Toby. Or Chester, since all of the dogs my family has ever owned had names begnning in "Ch".
I am a cupcake baker. I have come up with new recipies in my dreams. I'm not kidding.
I'm delving into feminism. Yes, I am still pro-life. I will be glad to explain why those two go together.
I hate peas.
I love chocolate.
I enjoy people-watching.
I neither love nor hate hipsters. I only bring that up because it seems like everyone has to have at least some opinion of them. Nobody can just not mention them at least once.
I love puns.
I laught at my own jokes.
I laugh at my own puns.
Goodbye.

Learn Cool Stuff About Me! Whoo!  

Who wants to know, eh?

Oh, I should probably mention…

One of the two attorneys I work for quit/got fired a few weeks ago.

So this is how it went down.

Attorney B told attorney A that he wanted to leave, but didn’t want to just put his two-weeks notice in and then split.

Attorney A said that that was fine, just make sure you’re ready for a clean split (aka, start looking for a new job).

Attorney B dragged his feet, asked a bunch of other law firms in town if they were looking for another attorney.

Attorney B got turned down. By all of them.

Attorney B’s assistant got another job and left.

Attorney A told Attorney B that it needed to be his last week.

Attorney B decided that Attorney A was bluffing and decided to play chicken.

And so came the end of the week.

Attorney A asked Attorney B when he would start clearing his stuff out.

Attorney B flipped the fuck out and stormed out of the office.

…and that’s pretty much it.

I still have to tell at least two callers that Attorney B is no longer with the firm, to which they either reply “Oh, I’m sorry” and quickly hang up, or “WHAT DO YOU MEAN? I HAVE A CASE WITH HIM!” at which point I give them his cell number.

Yup.

Pass this on Tumblr

This is actually pretty important

very important information

This needs to be seen more. Rape needs to flat out stop, but until then victims need to know there’s support for them.

I’m glad the portrait of Ben Franklin stayed the same on the new $100 bill. There’s something about his slight, tight frown, the paternal hint of disappointment in his eyes and those pursed, sealed lips that seem to say, “I don’t approve of what you’re doing, but I can’t stop you from rolling this banknote into a straw and ripping a fat rail of white lightning in the Buffalo Wild Wings handicapped bathroom stall, you goddamn beautiful disaster.”

WHAT KIND OF WIZARD FISH IS THIS

DUDE THATS A BABY KAIJU

pew, pew!

SCIENCE SIDE OF TUMBLR URGENT

YOU CALLED!?
This fish is not actually spitting bioluminescent spit…it’s spitting out its bioluminescent food! Some clever scientist has put some bioluminescent ostracods in a tank with some little fish. When agitated, these ostracods (tiny shirmpthings) secrete chemicals that, when combined, emit light.
Why?
You’re seeing why right here. Just before the fish spits it out, those light chemicals are filling up the belly of the fish. Now, it isn’t poisonous or anything…but the fish wants NOTHING TO DO WITH THEM because the fish has predators too. 
So yeah, if you’re a little fish and suddenly you’re FREAKING GLOWING, your lifespan has just gotten a lot shorter. 
As soon as the fish realizes that there’s light emanating from its belly, it pukes out the glowing juices (and the little shrimp). You can actually see the ostracod in this gif swimming away down toward the bottom of the tank happy as a clam…or a shrimp. 
Evolution is AWESOME.

Thank you, science side of tumblr.

Abortionist with more than ten malpractice suits defends himself

clinicquotes:

Abortionist Dr. Tommy Tucker defended himself to a reporter who revealed that he had been sued for malpractice over ten times.

“Litigation is part of our life. We have people who are outside with 1 800 UCANSUE cards. This is just part of the business.”

Jim Yardley “Abortion Doctor Says It’s the Cause, and the Cash, that Keep Him Driving” (Atlanta, Georgia) Journal May 16, 1993

Tucker would later lose his licence after he botched an abortion and left the woman bleeding and dying in the clinic while he left to catch a plane. The clinic worker who frantically tried (unsuccessfully) to save the patient’s life had no medical training and had been left alone with her. She called Tucker, but he refused to come in and help. It turned out Tucker had untrained personnel doing abortoins and athesthetizng women in his clinic.

He was also accused by other clinic workers of killing a baby born alive in an abortion, but never was prosecuted for it because investigators could not find the body of the infant.

College students have their babies and succeed despite proabortion pressure →

clinicquotes:

An article in The American Feminist talked about how difficult it is for pregnant college students to have their babies because they get so much pressure to abort, and because they are often made to feel they must choose between their babies and their education. The article says:
