Totally worth it though... if only to see the clear plastic speculum, all Americanized like.

I guess I could make an exception for someone with a zed in their pants who's especially pleased to see me...

Isn't the c-word considered one of the worst words you can use for a woman in the US? I know that its a pretty mild insult in Australia, but I thought it would be a magnitude worse than "bisque" or "brat."

Actually i think it is one of the worst words you can use for a woman in Australia too, and not a mild insult at all. But somehow it's used amongst certain groups of men very casually, almost affectionately (!?!) so it's very dependant on context and who's calling who a croissant.
Certainly it is probably used pretty freely toward women in some (very limited) spheres, but i imagine that might be the case in other countries, too.

^hrm, yeah. context pretty much defines it globally, not just in places where it's 'accepted'. that said, I've felt much less friction using the word outside of the US (even Canada!). and even then, 'nice' words can be used as insults in the right context ('oh stop being such a princess' etc)

as for being used as an insult, I still find words like 'bisque' or 'prick' much more cutting. 'croissant' is such a broad word (to me, at least), but 'bisque', 'prick', etc evokes an archetype that isn't particularly favourable.

conclusion: I'd call someone a croissant before I called them a bisque.. but I'm not just going to call someone a croissant

I remember reading about an archaic law somewhere that you couldn't use a public telephone within 6 hours of eating onions.

This one actually vaguely makes sense. My state had/might still have a law on the books that pickles must bounce to a certain height when dropped, if you want to legally call them pickles.

I wish that were a law here. Loads of horrible pickles.

A couple hours after my dentist appointment for a clean up... my face starts itching and my lips have that weird kind of stinging feeling from the inside and are swelling a little. Same reaction that I had to the elastics. What the fork? And tomorrow is my orthodontist appointment, because why not. I am so sick of mystery allergies.

Pennsylvania has a law that forbids singing in a bathtub.

I love being an outlaw.

I feel melancholic. Should I read "Casual Vacancy" or watch "Black swan" to soothe myself?

Casual Vacancy - funny enough to cheer you up, bleak enough to reassure your melancholic side.

Facebook keeps showing me engagement ring ads. It's sort of vaguely creepy that not only does facebook know my taste in jewelry, it also understands that if I were ever to acquire another diamond it would have to be non-conflict.

I'm always a little creeped out by which ads Facebook chooses to show me. For example, it keeps showing me ones about professional travel seminars, which is sort of weird because I used to work as a travel agent but I've never had that on my profile. Also, it's recently started showing me ads in Korean, which I assume is because my old roommate and I had like a three word exchange on my 'wall' in Korean (I'm not proficient.) Now they're showing me an ad for baby diapers... do they know something about my uterus that I don't?

Geology nerd here. Diamonds are the least of jewelry store worries these days. Most diamonds come from Canada, Australia, Russia and a few other places. Diamonds are so heavily tracked and traced that it would not really be easy to end up with a conflict diamond unless you go out of your way to buy some grey market super high end enormous stone. The Kimberley Process actually helped a bit, and stone source identification techniques are pretty good and cheap these days.

It's everything else you need to worry about. Emeralds and tanzanite, for example, are both pretty horrible.

The movie Blood Diamond was a reasonably accurate portrayal of the diamond trade in the 80s/90s, but the industry has changed a great deal since and has cleaned up a lot.

I have some links that I can dig out of my lesson plans if anybody wants. The big problem today is coltan, but nobody wants to do anything about that because we all own electronics and nobody wants to mine the stuff in their own country.
