Vagina Expectations

I stumbled onto this article the other day on "How to Have a Perfect Vagina." Apparently now women not only have to obsess over having the perfect body, but now we have to worry about the state of our vaginas.

Pretty soon Oprah will do a show on the subject and The Today Show will feature experts on how women can perfect their vaginas.

I'm not knocking vaginal health. It is important. As anything regarding our health, we should monitor it for abnormal symptoms. I mock the phrase "perfect vagina."

So next time I see my gynecologist, if my vagina doesn't get a perfect score. I'm sending it to its room without sex. That'll teach my vagina to study harder.

Trying to laugh at my problems

I don't remember when it first started. Sometime in the last few months. But it's steadily getting worse. My laptop at work shuts off randomly. It might seem like fun, but it's not. It usually waits to shut off until I'm deep into a project. Sometimes I remember to save often, and sometimes I don't.

And even worse, sometimes the damn thing refuses to come back on.

So this morning I happened to see this comic. The boss's reaction reminds me so much of my Bossman's reaction. Which is probably the funniest part.

Then there's this one. Which is what I feel like telling Bossman when he wonders why I'm not getting things done in a timely manner.

I'm thinking about printing them out and putting them on my door so maybe he'll get the idea. Anyway, they made me laugh a little at this frustrating problem of mine. Which would be a first as these random shut offs tend to have me screaming obscenities (literally) and threaten to run the piece of shit over with my car.

Update: As I was writing this post, the fucker shut off.

Update Update: Just realized that Blogger cuts off the third panel, and I'm not techno savvy enough to figure out how to fix it. But if you click on the strips, you should be redirected to, and there you can see the full strips.

Grey's Anatomy S4ep15

I’ve been struggling a bit with last night’s finale. I didn’t just love it. Don’t get me wrong. There were parts that I thought were excellent. Great writing, great acting. But on the whole, I wasn’t wowed by this episode. And that final kiss they had been hyping so much for so long did nothing for me.

We learned more about the two characters we knew least about... Bailey and Alex. Bailey's a bit of a nerd. Who knew? I loved that she was able to recite every detail that happened to Han, even those events that occurred after the end of the mainstream movies.

And Alex. So it wasn't just his dad he had to struggle with but his mom. It is not easy for an adult to take care of someone with emotional or mental problems, let alone a kid. He clearly had been internalizing his guilt for so long that Rebecca was the trigger that just released a flood of emotion. I thought the scenes of him crying and begging Izzie to have sex with him was so very poignant and some of the best of the episode.

Cristina is finally getting somewhere professionally again. I think she was a bit of a bitch with Hahn telling her off during surgery, but then again Erica hasn't exactly treated her with a lot of respect. She's been downright mean to Cristina. At least Cristina is taking the lesson the Chief was trying to give Erica and apply it to her own mentees by teaching Lexie. She probably doesn't want to end up exactly like Erica.

Lexie is a clepto. Not too surprising given the episode where she stole all that stuff from the hospital. And apparently she's in love with George. Again not all that surprising. She doesn't seem to have many friends aside from George, so her developing feelings for him is not a big shock.

Mark did change, just a little bit. But he understands what it's like to be so attracted to someone that you can't get her out of your head. So it wasn't a drastic change. And I can so see him going back to his old ways.

So proud of George. For standing up to the Chief about the unfairness in the treatment all the residents have received in terms of second chances. I had never thought of it before. But they had all received second chances. Izzie after cutting Denny's wire. Meredith after telling one patient she was dying when she wasn't. Alex after punching a patient. Cristina after covering for Burke's tremor. Why were they all given second chances and not George? Especially after he only failed by one point. But then it's not like the Chief to be really open about his reasons.

Bailey gives the clinic to Izzie. I think that's very smart of her. Izzie will do well in the clinic. It's the kind of medicine that allows her to be great not just as a doctor but as a person that cares about the patients. And I'm hoping this move will help Bailey get back together with her husband because I really hate to see her in so much pain.

The teenage tumor patients that found love and support in each other during treatment was a touching storyline. I admire her persistence and strength in going forward with the surgery when 12 other people, including her boyfriend, had died from it before her. I don't know if I would have had the courage to say, I know these people have died, but I want to do it anyway.

I am so glad that Meredith had her breakthrough and realized what it was her mom meant when she said “Be extraordinary.” I’m hoping that I might start liking her. Her gesture with the candles laying out the house was a big move for her.

Oh yeah, and Meredith and Derek are back together. This time supposedly for good.

Mochaface History

Apparently I need to change my profile picture here on my blog since my name gives the impression that I'm black. But really if you scroll down you can see my facebook profile on the side and see that in reality I'm a pasty white girl.

Not sure I've ever done a post on how I got my nickname (though it is in my profile) so I guess I need to do that...

A few years ago when I was living in Boston and going to grad school, I worked at Starbucks. In fact at the time, it was the busiest Starbucks in New England. Our morning rushes had the line out the door an for at least 2 hours. Afternoon rushes were also busy but not as busy as the morning.

I was scheduled for the shift from hell - which means the shift that spans both rushes. The night before I went to an Aerosmith concert so was not feeling exactly chipper that morning (read: hungover).

During the afternoon rush, I was working the cold beverage station making frappucinos. I had a blender with ice (this was before we poured the frappucino mix straight into the blender) and when I pumped the mocha syrup into the blender, it hit the ice just right, bounced out and hit me in the face. Since we were so busy and I was out of it (read: hungover), I didn't wipe it off. By the end of my shift my fellow partners were all laughing and had coined me Becky Mochaface. The name's kind of stuck, and I've grown attached to it. It has nothing to do with ethnicity and is not meant to bring any disrespect. ;-)

ANSWER - Tuesday Trivia: Atlantic City

Why was the first boardwalk in Atlantic City built?

To keep vacationing beachgoers from tracking sand into local hotels. The wooden boardwalk, built in 1870, was a mile long and eight feet wide. It linked the beach with the town and could be dismantled and stored in sections during the stormy winter months. The first permanent boardwalk was built in 1884.

Congratulations to Mochaface friend Bsimi who got the answer right by proxy.

LOST S4ep12

So sorry about this being late. I'm keeping this week's post short since I am four days late.

What I loved about this episode:
  • Richard and the rest of the Others finally showing up after remaining hidden for the majority of this season.
  • The looks on Sun and Jin's faces when they see Michael on the freighter, and Michael's pleading for understanding from them on his situation.
  • Sun standing up to her father and taking his power away from him. I'm not a big fan of Sun but that moment and the look of defeat on his face was awesome.
  • Reappearance of the numbers on Hurley's car.
  • Jack finding out about Claire being his sister and looking like he finally feels guilty for whatever the rest of the survivors are going through (or went through) on the Island after the six of them got off.
  • The reunion of Sayid and Nadia.

Grey's Anatomy S4ep14

Sorry again guys about this being late. And since it is late, I'm going to keep it somewhat short.

What I loved about this episode:
  • Mark's new leaf, he's trying so hard but he ultimately can't change who he is
  • George running around the hospital desperately seeking approval
  • Meredith insisting she get her chart back from Dr. Wyatt while she's in the hospital only to have Lexie come in and tell her that she forgives her and loves her even if Meredith doesn't have the capacity to love her back. And Meredith relenting to another session with the doctor after Lexie leaves.
  • Lexie standing up to Cristina's bullying.
  • Meredith breaking down while telling Andre that they should have waited. That she didn't believe that kind of love existed. And then finally (finally!) opening up to the doctor about what has had such a profound impact on her life.
  • How Alex is still taking care of Rebecca even after finding out that she's not pregnant.

Bad News Bears

Bitch nuggets! Cable went out tonight. Which means I didn't get to watch Grey's Anatomy or LOST. And as I'm leaving work early tomorrow to go out of town for the weekend, I'm not sure when I'll be able to watch them. So I can't tell you when I'll get my posts done. But I will watch them and then post as soon as I can. Hope they were great episodes! (But don't spoil them for me please!)

Shit. Arriving with Cake, Dogs & a Stash.

It's meme time! Got this from This was an easy one, no thinking involved. Just google '[your first name] likes to' and post the results. Simple enough. But it definitely provides a lot of entertainment.

So, 'Becky likes to' results...
Becky loves to read. Becky loves her friends and family (including dogs). Becky cares about how HIV/AIDS impacts us all. Number one hit, right on. Books, check. Friends and family, check. Dogs, check. HIV/AIDS, who isn't concerned?

Rebecca likes to think about things.Of course. How else would I get anything done?

Becky Likes You... Becky Arrives. Um, kinda weird but okay.

Becky Likes Cake. It's okay, not my favorite thing but I do enjoy a good piece of cake.

Rebecca likes to try and save them when she sees animals in distress. ... Rebecca likes to think of her stash as a processing backlog. Yeah don't really have a stash, unless you count my shoes.

I like blogs. Wherein R rambles on about various and sundry, and that weird cooking thing in CA. ... So, uh, I hear Rebecca likes to cook. Just a rumor. I do like blogs. Just ask DBF, he usually rolls his eyes whenever I start a sentence with "So I was reading this blog today..." And I do like to cook and am pretty good as long as I have a recipe. But then again I was always good with instructions.

Rebecca likes to swear. Fuck yeah!

Rebecca likes to get up very early. I get up early to work out. It's not very early, and I don't like it much, but I do it because if I didn't, I would almost never work out.
So there you have it. Random results from Google for what I apparently like to do.

The real fun with a meme is tagging other people to do it. So, congratulations to Michele, Lindsey and Aaron. Tag! You're it!!

Toilet revelations

It is commonly believed - at least around these parts - that people do their best thinking in the bathroom. Why? Who knows. Maybe it's that little slice of solitude that opens your mind. Or, maybe you're relaxed while mindlessly taking care of routine business when your mind drifts to a problem and all of a sudden you have a solution.

Whatever it is, I had a revelation during one recent restroom break... about the restroom. We've been in this office for almost two years, and it never occurred to me before how uncomfortable it is to use the ladies' room. It's not the toilet itself but rather how close the toilet is to the wall on the left and how far it is from the wall on the right.

Narrow stalls in public places make me slightly uncomfortable, but as long as the toilet is in the middle, it's not a big deal. It's when the toilet is off center - closer to one wall while leaving a big open space on the other - that it gets awkward. It cramps my style. And now I can't help but notice and think about this in every public restroom I visit.

It's just too bad I don't use my bathroom powers of revelation for something more productive, such as solving the energy crisis, ending world hunger, or organizing relief efforts for victims of earthquakes or tornadoes. I'm sure I'll get around to it. Someday. When people starting putting toilets in the center of stalls.

LOST S4ep11

I love me some Locke.

He's starting to have dreams from the Island, kind of like Eko used to. And Ben's face when he realized his reign was over, and it's John who's picking up the mantle of leadership was so pathetic. "I used to have dreams." He's finally starting to accept it rather than fight against it like when he shot John into the pit of Dharma bones.

And Ben's face when he realized that John taking them to the pit and that Hurley would find out exactly what happened was awesome. Just great acting from Michael Emerson, again. That man is incredible. But back to Ben... for some reason he's okay with John knowing what he did but not anyone else. Guilty conscience perhaps?

That protocol manual Keamy pulled out of the safe had the Dharma logo on it in case you missed that. So does that mean Widmore is head of, or some other way involved with, Dharma? It certainly suggests that.

So Locke is awesome. He drew Mr. Smoky when he was 5/6. How did he know to draw that? Was the Island speaking to him even then, he just didn't know it? Apparently it took a miracle for him to open his ears to it.

How does the knife not belong to him? He's the guy that brought a case full of knives on the plane with him! If it wasn't the knife, what was it? I'm guessing the book because of the way the camera lingered over it for what seemed like a tad longer than the other items.

Any of you smart people know if that comic book was the same one, or same title, Walt was reading in the first season? I'm pretty positive it wasn't the exact one but they looked very similar. Also, the cover did say "Hidden Land" - kind of like our Island. Could anyone read what the badge in the bottom right corner said? I couldn't get my TiVo to give me a clear shot.

Abbadon makes another appearance. This time to tell Locke about walkabouts. I don't quite know what to think about this character. He's certainly creepy.

How is it that Claire - who usually freaks out and starts screaming any time Aaron is missing - has left him behind and ends up sitting on a sofa in a creepy cabin very nonchalantly and very calm and insist that she's fine and with him? Him of course being her dead, sort of ghostly or spectrely figure of a dad.

Richard Alpert. Last night I was wondering out loud to DBF how a man could appear at so many different times and look as if he hasn't aged a day when it hit me. Time travel! It make sense. There's already a strong theme of time to LOST with the flashbacks and now flashforwards. Plus thanks to Farraday, we know that time moves differently on the Island. A couple weeks ago, I was reading an article online that was talking about Ben's recent episode. It was theorizing on Ben using time travel to get to Tunisia. So if Ben can travel time, why couldn't Richard? Also, the way Richard greeted 5-year-old Locke gave me the impression that he knows him. And he told him that the items *already* belonged to him. I have no idea how exactly he's getting back and forth. But I now think that is his secret.

And move the Island? No problem, I'll get my big suitcase. It'll fit in there. Hopefully, it will get through security.

Grey's Anatomy S4ep13

In an episode that is supposed to be about changing and becoming the people the Seattle Grace doctors want to be and see in their heads, Richard has not changed. He still gives Bailey special treatment. And he still wants Adele because he hasn't moved on. I doubt he's even tried to move on. He's convincing sure, but he doesn't see that he needs to. Loved how Bailey made up affairs with Derek and then yelled at Richard for his discrimination.

Cristina stares straight ahead and goes super scary quiet instead of trying to suck up to Erica like she usually does. Awesome. She went crazy and started singing Madonna while surrounded by bodies. Loved it. And the only thing that snaps her out of her funk is hearing that Meredith is in therapy and therefore way more screwed up. Couldn't write it any better if I tried. Cristina has changed because Erica has forced her to. She used to doing amazing things, but now she barely gets to even observe. She resents it and all of her emotion erupts when forced to simplify and expose her relationship with Burke for a form. And that relationship was anything but simple.

Izzie is changing. A season ago, I would have fully expected her to tell Alex that Rebecca is actually not pregnant. But now she doesn't. If she had met Denny now, I wonder if she still would have cut that wire.

Poor Lexie. She's the forgettable girl. Loved George's face when he was trying to get Alex to remember their brief encounter.

George, the Chief's intern. He's trying to accept his second year as an intern and desperately holds on to the pathetic excuse of this job that was created to impress Adele as a way to do something different and change himself.

It was no surprise that Todd and Darren turned out to be lovers. When Todd walked into that room the first time, the look that they exchanged was electric and communicated things only lovers say to each other. What a heartbreaking moment though when Darren was being wheeled to surgery and sees Todd, and then he moves on without saying a word to the love of his life because he's afraid his dad won't approve.

Bailey comes to Mark's defense to the nurses but she does it Bailey-style. "He is a whore and you knew that." Berating the nurses for acting like victims when Mark has never hid who he was and acts like the whore he is. Awesome. The pathetic look on Mark's face looks like he's finally realizing just how much of a whore he is. Wonder if we'll see him actually stop his whoring ways - or at least dial it back a bit.

Meredith's therapist doesn't tiptoe around the truth, and Meredith can't handle that. Probably because she's telling herself she's doing the right thing when in actuality she's making the biggest mistake of her life.

Book Review: The Pillars of the Earth

The Pillars of the Earth by Ken Follett

This is a long book, roughly 1,000 pages. I know what you're thinking: 1,000 pages! There's no way I'd read that. Hold on. It's not a difficult read, and it's incredibly interesting. The book spans decades, and the plot is centered around the building of a cathedral in 12th century England. The story is told from the perspectives of many different people somehow involved with the cathedral... the master builder of the cathedral, the head monk at the monastery that's building the cathedral, the earl of a nearby province, and the wool merchant that lives in the village of the cathedral - to name a few.

What is probably most shocking to some is that the author of this cathedral book that includes multiple figures from the Catholic church is an atheist. It is very subtle ribbon that you can see throughout the book though. But only if you're looking for it. More often than not the religious characters are ambitious and greedy and sometimes narrow-minded, while the master builder and wool merchant simply want to be happy and loved.

The real test is would I read this book again? Absolutely. I enjoy stories that take decades to tell and are told from different perspectives. So if you like books that are really more a saga than a single story, cathedrals or the Thomas Becket-era of England, I strongly urge you to give this one a try.

Hump Day Humor: Facebook in reality

What if people acted in real life like they do in Facebook? Here's a hilarious video of a couple guys doing just that. I couldn't stop laughing. Enjoy!

ANSWER - Tuesday Trivia: Television

What TV sitcom star did a cartwheel when he headed down the aisle to receive an Emmy?

Alan Alda, in his tuxedo, in 1979, when he was awarded his first Emmy in the writing category (on his third nomination). Honored for his work on the TV sitcom M*A*S*H, Alda is the only person to win Emmys for acting, directing and writing.

Congratulations Mochaface friend Catizhere for being the first (and only) one to answer correctly.

Side note - I'm actually a *huge* M*A*S*H fan. I usually watch an episode or two every night before I go to bed. I love Alan Alda but crush more on Trapper, even though he was only on for three seasons. Is it weird that my favorite show is one that was on for only the first two years of my life?

What is your sexual nationality?

Curious? Got this link from Guy Kawasaki to a great site from K-Y that lets you take a quiz to see if you're British, or another nationality, in bed. The best part is the stone-faced woman who leads you through the questions.

Apparently I'm 50% Congolese. Interesting. I loved the fruit hat and the dancing that came with my results.

LOST S4ep10

Sorry it's taken me a while to post on this week's LOST episode. I was having trouble getting inspired because this week didn't do much for me. Sure it developed the characters more, especially Jack, Kate and Juliet. Possibly part of why I didn't like the episode very much because it showed Jack and Kate together in the future, and I'm very much a Skater fan.

Of course we see the beginning of the unraveling for Jack... he sees his father. But what about seeing these people who are dead (Christian and Charlie) drive Jack and Hurley crazy and convince them that they need to go back? Is it just because they are supposed to be dead but look to be walking about and talking as if they were still alive? Or is it more than that? I'd like to think it's more than that.

The best part of this episode was after the operation when Juliet tells Kate, "He kissed me. It was nice." Hilarious line! And I absolutely loved how she called Jack out on playing possum. I still think it's a bit odd that she supposedly loves Jack when she only lost Goodwin two months or so before.

And Rose certainly does have a point about how the Island heals. Why did Ben and Jack get sick?

Grey's Anatomy S4ep13

What an amazingly funny and heartbreaking episode! Not many shows can pull off funny and heartbreaking in the same episode but Grey's does it impeccably with the help of Addison of course.

I love Addison. She's one of those characters that is flawed herself but can cut through the bullshit of other people's issues and help them to see clearly. She cares, and she's not afraid to give you exactly what you need whether that's harsh words to wake you up or a hug and shoulder to cry on. And you can't forget the incredible shoes that girl wears in the hospital!

I'm so glad to see the return of the interns. One of the most interesting things for me in the whole storyline of this show is watching the former interns become bosses for their own interns. Especially Izzie since she's still struggling to establish control over hers. She's been beaten down medically and personally lately and it's starting to show. But thanks to Addison, she's able to realize that doesn't mean you stop fighting. So she stands up to her interns and stands up to her patient. (btw - I had no idea that an HIV positive woman has a 98% chance of not passing it on to her children. See Mom... television *is* good for you!)

George continues his path to manhood by finally embracing his repeat intern status. He's the cool intern because he knows the residents, knows the hospital and knows what to do. Now though Izzie is feeling left out of the group and is trying to fit in. Only she doesn't realize she had been doing the same thing to George.

Rebecca's pregnant. Only she's not. So glad they didn't have Izzie look at the report and act shocked only to not tell us what it said. That would have been evil. But back to the not-pregnant Rebecca... why is she pretending to be pregnant? I'm thinking she wants to be with him and it's the only way she can think of to get him to give her a real chance considering what he said to her last time. And Alex, poor Alex, was a jackass at first ("You keeping it or getting an abortion?") only to realize after the surgery on the baby with his heart outside his chest that creating life is a gift and it's special. I get though why he was hesitant. He's scared that he'd be a dad like the one he had, which all clues indicate was an abusive drunk. But he's taking his first steps to manhood and accepting the responsibility of his actions.

There were so many great lines in this episode. Cristina to Callie on opening up to Erica: "Tell her how I feel? Well I don't speak girl." Or Callie to Addison on her relationship with Erica: "I like penis. I'm a huge huge fan of penis." Or Meredith and Cristina to Callie on why no one thinks they're a couple: "No we screw men like whores on tequila." "Then try to marry them or drown." That's great writing!

Callie clearly hadn't thought of her relationship with Erica as anything more than a close friend, helping her through her divorce and filling the void from Addison when she left for LA. (So glad Callie's not bitter any more as an angry Callie is just scary!) All of a sudden, she's noticing things she missed before. Erica removing a hair from her lip for instance. She starts to overcompensate by dancing then going home with Mark so it becomes clear that she likes penis. And the rumor on the Internets a few months ago that Erica's gay is all of a sudden no longer a rumor. And Addison, true to form, is the only one who notices.

Of course she can notice because she's not immersed in the Seattle Grace world every day. Sometimes it does take an outsider to shake things up. Or, help Bailey admit that she's struggling to make things work - which was another heartbreaking scene. And she's the only one who can say to Meredith, you're wasting your chance at happiness with a great man. Of course it doesn't hurt that she wasted that same chance so she speaks from experience. Absolutely loved that part!

Did anyone else notice Meredith call Derek Dr. Shepherd after the surgery? When did she switch to such a formal title?

For me, there were two amazing scenes in this episode that compete for best scene possibly ever. The first was when Cristina was practicing girl talk and caring about other people's feelings. It was hilarious to watch everyone's faces of shock and Cristina struggle to get the words out. Meredith was perhaps the most concerned because that's not in either of their personalities to talk and be so open with their feelings.

The second scene of course was something I like to call McDreamy and his Elevator Harem. (Sounds like a good name for a band.) The awkwardness was tangible. Then Mark gets on. Just complete hilarity to watch.

I know this was long but I absolutely loved this episode. Quite possibly one of the best ones this season.
