  1. I wasn't sure how anyone/everyone would feel about this so I didn't post it, but if you think it's a good idea then I will

  2. 'Round here 10 am is not too early. Heck, the tasting rooms close at 4 pm.

  3. Ladies, I was contacted directly by The View earlier today and asked to participate. Big gulp, but I agreed.

    This should do wonders for my attempts to re-enter the dating world.

    Hope I represent our interests appropriately.

  4. PS Fortunately it is Restaurant Week in NYC and I already have plans to meet some friends that day. Wasn't planning on a liquid lunch, but now I am!

  5. Oh, Riri!!!!!! There isn't anybody I'd rather have representing me!

  6. riri, WOW, you are amazing.
    Do you have any idea when the segment will air? I must set my TIVO.

    Riri, that is so exciting. I haven't met you yet, but have heard of your wonderfulness and was actually thinking "I bet Riri would be the ideal youngihmson for this."

    I meant what I said - I would go to support you there in a heartbeat. Maybe they can reserve some tickets for fellow IVF vets?

  8. Hope I represent our interests appropriately.
    I have no doubt you will. You tirelessness for this--our--cause continues to amaze me. YOU ARE INCREDIBLE.

  9. thanks ladies.

    The producer thought it was kind of funny that I have never watched the show, so I don't really know what to expect. And it's done live, so I can't even beg for edits. I think it airs Thursday at 11. Can someone send a hair youngihmson to my apartment Thursday morning!!

  10. riri - that's awesome!

    thank you!

  11. EQ, you actually made me LMOA yet again today - I just saw your pithy post in response to the yoga4fertility friend's suggestion that we should read "sweet grapes"from the comments section:Originally Posted by ArgentouSweet Grapes was the stupidest book to ever waste a tree on.Ah, bitter grapes. That's getting me thinking. 4pm here - that's not too early for a glass of wine, is it?

    damn, EQ, I'm totally falling for you.

    and whichever of you is Tamar, you've made great comments on cupcake lady's blog as well.

  12. That would be me. :-)

  13. That would be me. :-)

    can i have crushes on both you and EQ? :-)

  14. Riri- HOLY $HIT. Can I come with you?

  15. OMG Riri finally somebody to tell them like it is!!!! So proud to have you represent! Good luck!!!! Already set my tivo!

  16. Riri - thanks for doing this!

    I posted this before reading all the updates that happened this afternoon:
    one other thing about this that really bugs me, what the h*ll is a "fertility advocate"?
    What a ridiculous title.
    I'm sorry, but it wasn't an advocate that I needed, it was younger eggs.
    And most of us have become quite adept at advocating for ourselves in this process. But, I don't think that's what she means by that ridiculous title.

    that said, Riri is the real advocate here.

  17. thanks. the whole segment is 7 minutes, and I'm not the only one, so we'll see how much time I'll actually have to speak and make a point.

  18. Riri did they tell what they plan to focus on?

  19. Riri, that is fantastic! I'm setting the DVR right now. I have a feeling you'll handle whatever they throw at you with grace (and we've never even met). Oh boy! So... what will you wear? (and all that important stuff).

  20. Riri setting my DVR right now...couldn't think of someone better to do this..you are an amazing youngihmson!

  21. thanks. the whole segment is 7 minutes, and I'm not the only one, so we'll see how much time I'll actually have to speak and make a point.

    whoo...I am excited. Way to go riri. I don't really watch the show (bits here and there when there are controveries), but I SO will to see you. Thanks for being a voice for us vets!

    I always find that one youngihmson on the view who used to be a member here at IVFC, well, interesting...I am a bit surprised by some of what she says (about lots of things).

    LOL. OMG EQ, so so true. Sadly, I fell into the trap, and actually bought that piece of c.r.a.p.

    Wait, who??! The suyoungihm duyoungihm conservative young one? Or is it the lady who thinks the earth is flat? I really only like Joy and Whoopi but I'm guessing it's neither of them.
