There's a problem here. Take a look at PurpleKoosh's tagline:

There's a number of different places I could go with this...but I have an ex-friend who was selling used sex toys on eBay recently, and I just can't get that out of my head. :roll:

the scary thing is people were bidding on them....

I'll give it 50 to 1 odds that most of those toys are heading to "RED" states.

**Monkeypoo lifts flap of Red Tent, looks side to side and notices no one inside**

Hmmm...too much time on my hands. All my work is done. Need something to do...

**spots a huge red treasure chest in far corner, walks over to it and lifts the lid**

WOW!!! Dress-up clothes and costumes!!! And they're all RED!!!!!

**fumbles through the soft red material, finds the most perfect beautiful red frock, pulls it over her head, looks in mirror**

Oh, my goodness!!! Am I a Goddess or what??!!! I feel so PRETTY!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Good grief. This place looks like a parade of midgets and monkeys came through here.

{having whisked the large mason jar away from the bar unawares, giggles sets to work straining the water from the besotted flowers, melts in some dark wildflower honey, and pours into thick ceramic mugs; smiling and nodding at the presence of Miss Long Lanks who appears to be doing other things, but whom I know is really snuggled down by the fire; sips soothing tea}

thanks honey. i need to stop trying to ever give any spot of advice or comfort or empathy. it just ends in a fucking train wreck. i'm shooting for cutting off all human interactions.

but i met a really nice new friend last night.

and i have feathers from arkansas above my bed. here, i brought them in the tent for today.

how are you? and your kids? and the article, and the lady?

The lady believes I am meant to live in Holland, where everybody is happy; she gave me positive criticism with what I wrote and sent to her; and she is going to arrange for me to meet a lakota shaman who has been visiting with her of late. I think all that is really cool. And she knows who will be giving me a ride to the Big Do this summer (wow! I can see that crazy ass circus ticket right atop my desk shelf!!!)

I am basically running on fumes right now, but I feel mostly wonderful and springy and excited. Oooh, adventure.....what will happen next.....

Kids are my controlled chaos, sweet and sour, and mostly healthy; thanks for asking!

And how are you? Is your tea too sweet? I find the daub of extra honey helps when the chamomile steeps that long; strong in a very gentle way.

nah, it's lovely babe.

i brought some new pillows, btw, since i am a pillow freak.

holland. well, no. because if you did you'd be even farther away from us, which seems completely unacceptable to me.

ooh, gotta run, more after lunch.

mwah!

you're an angel.

Who comes up with this stuff??

A study at the University of Missouri shows that the type of facial features that a woman finds attractive can differ, depending upon where she is at in her menstrual cycle. For example:

If a woman is ovulating, she is attracted to men with rugged and masculine features.

If she is menstruating or menopausal, she is more prone to be attracted to a man with scissors jammed in his temple and a bat shoved up his ass while he is on fire.

m'kay.... so, I bled early this month (last week) but for all intents and purposes, I should be bleeding again today... not sure what the body is going to decide to do... but you'd think that I would have my fricken cycle down, since I've been on BC for years now....

maybe I was just picking up wierd hormonal stuff from all of you guys...

knock it off, would ya? I'm trying to maintain a schedule here!

Your mileage will vary. Having been through it once all the way from 'what the hell?' to hystrorectomy with my ex-wife and more than several years with my (in the following order) friend, girlfriend, ex-girlfriend, friend. I can tell you that it can be all over the board. The Ex was diagnosed as premenopausal at 45 and had a hystrorectomy about 1.5 years later. The friend mentiioned above started hot flashes at 50 and is still fairly clockwork at 53 (still has hot flashes though). Current GF is looking forward to the "end of this bullshit", she is 44.

4 out of 5 of the womenfolk on my mother's side don't get hot flashes, don't get weird, they just peter out starting around 50 and then stop. The other 1/5 start petering out and either get quick hystrorectomies or go nuts. There seems to be no middle ground. By and large they are all lucky in one sense, I didn't even know that women got cramps until I had to spend time with my father's side of the family; took me forever to figure out what they were going on about ( I was either 14 or 15).
I like playing with fire.

I'm getting pretty tired of it myself. It's been going on and off and on and off for the last 3 years. Usually it comes for 2 months, goes away for a month, then comes back. UGH. Doesn't make me crazy (yet), but the hot flashes are brutal every now and then. It's winter and I'm still sleeping with the patio door open and a fan faced towards me all through the night. Thanks for the info. Maybe I'll go to the healthfood store and see if they have anything for the flashes...

Donita, if you do Usenet at all, the "menobabes" at alt.support.menopause are, from all reports, a fantastic group of people (my Mom hung out there until she was in "full meno-stop," as she put it, and another friend of mine from elsenet is a regular). They'll be able to give you any number of recommendations, most of them useful. ;-)
