It’s My Birthday Today!

I love my birthday. I especially love this birthday, because all kidding aside, I hear the 30s are much better than the 20s. Also, it’s sunny out! For the first time in 11 million years! And I’m getting my hair done today. And I’m getting a mani-pedi, which I never do, because you could seriously go so crazy with the personal grooming appointments in New York that you wouldn’t have time to go to the job that pays for all this personal grooming. Anyway.

The best thing I got for my birthday, however, was the news that the FDA approved the HPV vaccine. Most cervical cancers (I think it’s like 90% or thereabouts) are caused by HPV. It’s a totally preventable disease, but women are still dying from it. I have to say that I’m really impressed that the FDA approved it. The political climate, she is not so friendly toward women and their parts these days.

Now, all of you, remember: The vaccine won’t be available for a couple of months, so you have to wait awhile before you start having the massive amounts of unprotected sex that the abstinence-only folks know you’ll be having.
