Today's feature on McSweeney's main page is one I definitely could relate to at 21. It's titled, "An Open Letter to My Male Gynecologist".

Make sure to check out their Reviews of New Food and, just for Meredith, Expert Help for Your Fantasy Baseball Franchise.

I need new pants

As of last Sunday morning, I've lost 9 pounds so far on Weight Watchers. Yay! I feel so much healthier now that I'm eating lots of veggies and drinking water instead of coke. My skin is much better, my acid reflux has gone away, and my biggest pair of nice work pants are now falling off. I don't have to fasten & zip them anymore; I can pull them on like sweatpants. Time to buy new, smaller ones! Goodbye, size 24 pants! I've got a couple of size 20s I can squeeze into now, though they're a bit stretchy so that helps. I'll also need a smaller bra before too long. This is going to get expensive!

Some people, man...but there's progress in less backward states.

California is trying its hardest to reject those crappy electronic voting machines with no voter-verified paper trail. Good for them! All the states should be doing that. I got a newsletter from my local election commissioner that was all about how we totally need these e-voting systems because otherwise we'd be taking a step backwards technologically. Oh no! We wouldn't have technology! AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! I wanted to call her office and say, "Hey, dimwit, technology isn't nearly as important as KNOWING YOUR VOTE COUNTS!" People really frustrate me sometimes.
