This is blog of a woman who didn't know what she wanted and so chased after dreams and men in search of the answers...drunken hilarity ensued. Then one day she met a man who was everything she wanted, but he wasn't so sure. Then she did the unthinkable; after they broke up she gave him this blog address and she let him into her mind as well as her heart. Unbelievably, even after sorting through the sordid archives of failed relationships, one night stands and her lusty (and embarassing) pursuit to secure the heart of a certain young line cook, John somehow managed to fall in love with her too. Melina and John were married a little over six months after they started dating, running away to Las Vegas to seal the deal. You can imagine what the over/under bet was to see if they'd even make it a year!! Over a year later and they are still going strong...this blog has become their story. Need to tell me something?

I'm just a girl...I don't know what to do with myself (sigh/swoon)
So South Dakota has outlawed abortions (for the most part, except for extreme circumstances). Senator Napoli was asked under what conditions would it be justifiable to terminate a pregnancy and this is what he said (this wasn't taken out of context or changed):

A real-life description to me would be a rape victim, brutally raped, savaged. The girl was a virgin. She was religious. She planned on saving her virginity until she was married. She was brutalized and raped, sodomized as bad as you can possibly make it, and is impregnated. I mean, that girl could be so messed up, physically and psychologically, that carrying that child could very well threaten her life.

So ladies, you no longer can make decisions yourselves and the only way you're going to get an abortion is if you've proven the fact that you were pure as the driven snow and then ravaged...awesome. In my eyes, it's the principle of the matter...government stepping in and infringing on individual rights. I'm not really focusing on the issue of whether abortion is right or wrong, because I don't care. In the immortal words of that fine television program Different Strokes, "What might seem right to you, might be wrong for some" and that's the way it's always going to be. I don't like people telling me (eventually) and the women of SD (right now) what we can and cannot do with our bodies. Seems a little puritanical and ass backwards, if you ask me (and I know that you didn't...but uh, it's my blog--so there).

This cartoon pretty much sums it up...and it's his real number if you want to call him and engage him in discussion on the matter:
