I was on a drug (sometime in my mid-twenties) for a while that shuts down estrogen production.

Hotflashes are the weirdest thing ever.

It gave me a new appreciation for the menopausal woman, that's for damn sure.
It's all about the squirrels.

A little Red Tent humor...

Eleven people were hanging onto a rope under a helicopter, 10 men and one woman. The rope was not strong enough to carry them all, so they decided that one had to drop off, otherwise they all ere going to fall.

They were not able to choose that one person, but then the woman made a very touching speech. She said that she would voluntarily let go of the rope, because as a woman she was used to giving up everything for her husband and kids and for men in general without ever getting anything in return. As soon as she finished her speech, all the men applauded.

**stocking the shelves of the Red Tent with feminine goodies**

Rambling random thoughts: Grumble, mumble, piss, shit, fuck, sonofabitch... Why does it always have to come at work?? Grumble, mumble. And who was the absolute genius who invented "wings"?? I just wanna kiss that person!! Grumble, mumble. When is this whole process gonna finally end?? Will I miss it once I no longer have to go through this??

**pops a midol**

Looking back I can see last month started on the 15th, so that is like an extra five premenstrual days, not to mention the anxiety of will she/won't she. Blech. Here, let me just cozy up next to you and absorb yer pheromes, Monkeypoo.

And I still have to go for dinner at my mom's here in a bit and get the maybelline night shift lecture.

Hey! I've got an idea! <evil grin and giggling> Give yourself a make-over before you go to Mom's. Do your make-up like Isotopia. Wear a pair of big sunglasses. Then when your Mom asks you about getting a job, you take the sunglasses off and ask her, "Mom, do you really think working at Maybelline is a good idea??" hee hee hee :P

Hee hee hee! Thanks for giving me a good giggle, Donita.

Well, I got it over with, the visit with the folks. Wasn't too bad. They forewent the maybelline lecture, thankfully. The big advice was to move back home, nearly just as bad. Actually, maybe a bit worse, if I think about it enough, which I've been trying not to since they brought it up. Ugh.

Wings, shmings, they flip up and pull my tender little curlies.

Of course, I'm old enough to remember pads without adhesives and the terrible belts with clips. Genius is the sticky pad!

I remember the belt and clips! It was not unlike riding a small pony!

You haven't lived until you've been body searched by a woman in a chador in the Shiraz airport and she wants to know EXACTLY what that is between your legs.

It waren't no pony, i tell you whut.

Pony? Really? I always thought of a loaf of cinnamon bread; I was a strange young'un. I only had the joy of belts for a short time, then technology caught up. Can you imagine if men had periods? Super duper deluxe pads that changed themselves, smell like bacon, had sports trivia printed on the wrappers, make cocks look bigger and abs more ripped, with a free sixpack and hairplugs in every box. NASA would design and test the damn things.

sorry about the stereotypes there, I got carried away .... heehee

You've reminded me of what may well be my all-time favorite post on LiveJournal:
naamah_darling wrote:You know if guys had periods, the packages would be slathered with pictures of Carmen Electra, and would frequently include a free bikini magazine or offers for $50 rebates on Coleman grills. What do girls get? Fucking pastel colors and super-quiet pouches. Such is our shame.
The entire post is so very worth reading...and if any of the rest of y'all who are on LJ haven't discovered TMI Chix yet, why are you still sitting here? Go. Read.

But you better not tell him. It might go to his head. He already has trouble fitting that gargantuan fucking thing through the door.

I've officially become a hygiene product. Not sure how I feel about that.

Gawd, I hate my mind sometimes. I'll be sitting here reading, minding my own business, and all of a sudden a picture will pop into my mind...or a strange thought...or a question. Out of nowhere. Eeeewwww...now I have a picture in my head of monkeys wearing tampons.

*M walks in...a thick layer of fine dust covers the entire place....she dusts off all the furniture, sweeps the floor and then takes the rugs and pillows out and shakes them before setting them back.....she sets up the swamp cooler and turns on the battery fan and sits down in front of it*

Wow, these dang hot flashes can be wicked! I feel like I'm cooking from the inside out!!

*M gets up and walks over to the Bar, gets a bottle of Baileys and a glass. Pours a toast to Giggles for this thread and then sits back down in front of the fan*
