"In an incredibly touching tribute to [The Divinyls] frontwoman, Chrissy Amphlett, some of Australia’s top singers have recorded a largely a capella version for a video encouraging women to self-examine their breasts for lumps.
Amphlett, one of the most shockingly sexual pop artists of the 1990s, died from breast cancer on April 21, 2013. According to Billboard, an ultrasound and mammogram initially missed the cancer, which Amphlett ended up finding on her own through self-examination.
Friends say her dying wish was that her 1990 hit song could become a reminder for all women to check themselves regularly for lumps and other signs of breast cancer. So Australian advocacy group Cancer Council NSW (New South Wales) worked with Amphlett’s widower and supporters to create the beautiful rendition below.
The singers are Connie Mitchell, Deborah Conway, Kate Cerebrano, Katie Noonan, Little Pattie, Megan Washington, Olivia Newton-John, Sarah Blasko, Sarah McLeod and Suze DeMarchi. You can watch interviews with each of them on Amphlett’s YouTube channel.” [x]
This is important. Also, be aware that the video ends with a NSFW-ish image, but we are talking about boobies here.

I was 14 in 1993. That would involve way too much plaid than is sanitary.

Get off my lawn.
So I have changed positions at the day job and now work in the outside seasonal department at a certain big box home improvement store.
Upside: fresh air and oodles of exercise
Downside: I know next nothing about plants except that you should water them and some need more light than others.
Anyone wanna help a girl out?
