I can't work out if this is all, like, post-modern funny, or horrifically sexist. Or both. But ultimately, I don't care because it made me laugh my ass off. Baking during sex? WHY NOT.

How to get a guy to notice you while you're having sex - 'Guys love blowing their load into a confident woman'.

WARNING: It's from The Onion.

All hilarity aside - 2011 really is shaping up to be the worst ever for my family. My Aunt was in hospital yesterday having her gall bladder removed. She was in so much pain today, her husband called 999 and it turns out, they forgot to tie off one of the...I don't know. Can't remember what it's called. Anyway, bile has been leaking into her stomach since the operation - she's been back in theatre for nearly four hours now. Calls are being put out to the family with a 'this is not good' message. There's nothing for it but to wait and hope. *throws hands up* 2011, you were fired the second week of January, and now I'm just pulling the AK-47 on you.

o_O I'm afraid I just don't get the Onion sometimes. My funny bone is decidedly odd, though.

I am so sorry about your Aunt. Sending all kinds of healing vibes her way. ~sends tea~

I think that's only the third time I've ever been on it. Hit it via something else, though I've heard of it before, obviously. Anyway, that one properly make me LOL.

Re: my Aunt - cheers, mate. I don't even know what to say. Someone being ill is one thing, someone going in for a fairly routine operation is another. I think it doesn't help that her sisters are putting the calls out to everyone, because we're all getting wound up, and speculating, and no one can know anything for sure until the operation's done. But yeah. Either way, the surgical team fucked this one up, ny uncle is threatening lawyers already and Grace is still in theatre. *resigned* Whatever happens, it's going to be messy.

Yeah, that's one of those situations where you make yourself a cup of tea and have a little one to one with the Powers That Be, knowing that things will just come out however they come out.

If it helps, my dad had his gallbladder out and it was a fairly routine surgery. I don't know how old your Aunt is, but I am tending towards optimism seeing as they know what the problem is and they just have to fix it.

Still, thinking good thoughts her way liekwhoa. <3

Which is exactly what I'm doing! *hopes*

She's fifty. I think the actual removal of the gall bladder seemed fine. it was that they forgot to tie something off, and bile has been leaking into her system since yesterday. They're worried about peritonitis I think, plus...well, correcting the problem shouldn't take that long, and she'd already been in surgery three hours when I found out about it. So there's obviously something going on. We just don't know what it is.

Gah. There's nothing we can do now. Will just have to wait and see.
