    The Girlie Thread

    So I got this idea from a thread in Story Research: Experts and Interviewees...

    We girls have our moments, be they due to hormones or something else.

    Let this be the place we come when our emotions are high and we need to let loose. We can be an ear for one another, because we all know what it's like.

    Let the support begin!

    Moments? I don't have moments! I have WEEKS! I'd kill for moments.
    Like this week.
    Screw up ankle: check
    Break glasses: check
    Make sure I have no money to get new glasses for 2 weeks: check

    I got nothing right now, but I'm so excited that you started this thread!!!
    Coming Home - revising

    "It was time. Her head was light and fuzzy, and her five senses were extra receptive the way they were when she was high on ecstasy. She could not only feel the metal of the weapon in her hand, but she could also taste it in her mouth. Her ears were ringing as though she’d already denoted the bullet; and her thoughts thickened like gravy in her mind, swirling and spinning and bubbling in a way that melded together all her memories, past dreams and long-forgotten hopes."

    I'm okay for now, too. I did have some issues last night and wondered is this hormonal, because of my cycle?*, but today my irritation is gone.

    *It was due to the way my husband had been all day. My question is, do I get irritated only because my mood is affected by hormones? Or, is it that I'm seeing circumstances more clearly, making my frustrations valid, whereas those other times of the month I'm oblivious and enabling?

    So, 'I'm PMSing & perimenopausal (read extends PMS by WEEKS) and I have a [insert highly messy but satisfing weapon of mayhem here]' is okay?

    I've never once let my hormones get the best of me... In fact, my boyfriend is the one who seems to act oddly once a month... I'm perfectly normal and level-headed, it's my MAN who gets all weird.

    No, really. I'm sure of it. HE'S the one who changes, NOT me!!! *nods fervently*

    Nice whiskers, though. Maybe it's a hormonal thing.

    We should get her some tweezers for those. On the other hand, she could use them for floss if she needs to.

    I rest my case. MEN are the problem, not hormones.

    Come on Anthony. Let's get out of here and go grab a beer or something. If we stay, they're gonna want to talk about relationships and crap like that.

    But will they learn? After the umpteenth time I called misterwrites a "butt" last night, he asked, "Why do you keep calling me that?" I said, "Because I figure one of these times it'll have to sink in and you'll make a change."

    This, my friend, is why boys weren't invited in the first place.

    You clearly need improvement in the name-calling department.

    I don't think it'd make a difference.

    FABULOUS IDEA!!!!! I'm 9 days late.....but since I had the shingles a month ago, I'm wondering if that played a roll in this. Stress....gotta love it.
