* This petition. I don't usually use my blog to promote causes, but this one hits close to home. I wish the OP had used people-first language rather than saying "special needs children," but am willing to overlook it because COME ON, UNITED HEALTHCARE, GET IT TOGETHER. If a kid can only digest a super-expensive medical formula, and receives said formula via g-tube, that is ABSOLUTELY A MEDICAL NECESSITY and THAT IS WHAT HEALTH INSURANCE IS FOR! If the insurance company we had when Little Child was on elemental formula via g-tube hadn't covered it I don't know what we would have done, and that is NOT an okay position for any family to be put into by a greedy corporation.
* FRENCH FRIES FRENCH FRIES OMG FRENCH FRIES! The banquets department at my job had a group come through that requested gluten-free fried foods, and the kitchen accommodated by draining and cleaning one of the fryers and special-ordering non-coated french fries, among other things. I HAD NOT HAD REAL FRENCH FRIES IN TWO AND A HALF YEARS AND THOSE FRENCH FRIES WERE AMAZING AND WORTH YELLING ABOUT!
* There is a whooping cough epidemic in California right now, and given that I work in hospitality and come into regular contact with travelers this scares the shit out of me. I have asthma, I do NOT currently have health insurance, and I'm allergic to the pertussis vaccine. So I really don't give a shit if you're afraid it'll give Junior autism based on a debunked study or the word of a woman whose fame is based on shaking her tits on MTV, VACCINATE YOUR CHILDREN PLEASE!
* TODAY WAS MY NINTH WORKDAY IN A ROW AND TOMORROW I AM OFF! WHOO TITS!
How are all of YOU? Are you yelling about anything today?
