About me

Gender Female
Location Somewhere in the Midwest, more or less, United States
Introduction I'm just an average mom with an addiction to medblogs, and an attitude I'm not afraid to use. I currently share living space with a husband, an adult son, two dogs, two birds, and a number of cats who are convinced that they own the place and we're just the domestic help. Yes, I'm opinionated. Yes, I cuss. Frequently. I probably should switch the "censor circuit" back on before I shock any more of my friends. Pseudonyms are the rule in this blog, except where I've been given permission to use the person's real name. If you think you know me, or anybody else mentioned here by pseudonym, well, you probably don't - we're all just figments of the universe's imagination anyway.

Which is more important to you and why: flexibility or expandability?

Please don't say "expandability" where my waistline can hear you. I don't want it to get any ideas.
