Am I below the line now?

Last night as I was lying awake, having to pee but not wanting to get out of bed because at 7 1/2 months pregnant I'm as mobile as a turtle on his back, I had an epiphany. Maybe my husband is no longer humoring me (hence this blog) because I've fallen below the line on the crazy hot scale. You know, because I'm 7 1/2 months pregnant.
When asked about this, my husband acted confused, so I must be right.
In other news, hanging out with black people probably saved my life. From Slate:

The strongest determinants of college bingeing are weak state and campus alcohol control policies (the regulatory environment) and the presence of lots of bingeing older adults (a locale's overall drinking culture). ...
In addition to lobbying for these kinds of local laws, college presidents could also promote alcohol education (obviously) and racial and ethnic on-campus diversity (less obviously). ... young whites drink far more than young African-Americans and Latinos, men drink more than women, and younger students drink more than older students. When mixed, all the groups moderate their alcohol consumption; thus, colleges with greater student diversity
have less bingeing across the board.
