Ticker picker

Karen mocked me yesterday for my nifty new countdown script, maliciously wondering why I didn't choose one with a stork or a big-headed cartoon baby on it.  Deeply wounded, I told her I hope she gets an equally cheesy ticker when her adoption is well and truly underway.  As I poked around the Internet in search of an appropriately saccharine picture to torment her with, it occurred to me that there should be a cheerful graphic for every precious moment in an infertile woman's journey to parenthood.  Here are some suggestions.

ticker-card
Number of months until the last cycle is paid for
ticker-butter
Sticks of butter consumed while in the throes of depression
ticker-drunk
Post-negative Drunk-O-Mat
ticker-adoption
Miles of fiendishly sticky red tape to fight through
ticker-pee
Gallons of urine fruitlessly deposited on HPT sticks
