Don’t give me that look.

Actually just don’t look at me at all.  I am cranky.

I want to eat all of the food. I want to drink all of the wine. I want to watch all of the TV. I do not particularly want to feed or entertain all of the children. And I want to stop having all of the fucking periods.

I can get a little moody. My colors are red hot rage and white hot fury. There is no blush and bashful.

I wish I had a white noise machine that played Phylicia Rashad’s voice. It soothes me. Evidently so does Alfre Woodard and Queen Latifah. I recognize that claiming the remake of Steel Magnolias with an all African-American cast as white noise is funny. I’m just not in the mood to be amused.

Here’s hoping that a peanut butter sandwich and a cup of coffee will fill me up, that my kids will amuse each other for an hour and that the Lifetime remake of Steel Magnolias and what is bound to be a good cry can get me over the period hump. Because that’s the only hump I am likely to see any time soon and something has got to me cheer me up.

  1. Oh, um, sorry about the PMS thing, too. I should have said that before…but I didn’t.

  2. OH MY GOD I totally thought you were being a smartass about the remake of Steel Magnolias, but YOU WEREN’T! I must see it. Don’t tell me if it’s terrible. I will find out for myself.

  3. I hear you. This was always when your grandmother would say to me,”things are always darkest before the dawn, Ann.”. And I would want to punch her in the nose. Hope today is a better day.

  4. Speaking of Bad Romance, this still makes me giggle.

  5. Oh sadly, I feel your pain (and frustration, and rage, and general pissiness!) Enough already. This is the true weapon of mass destruction!

  6. There is something wretched today. I am actually in Raleigh with my mom right now because B is attending a convention here, and we are staying close to NC State. There are a bunch of roundabouts near our hotel. My mom fecking missed our turn in them close to 3,500 times today when C was screaming in the car. I was about to stab her and myself and make the baby drive us to the hospital.

  7. Sorry you have the crankies. I like to eat chocolate chip waffles & watch a Housewives marathon if there’s one on. It’s always nice to see someone who ISN’T PMS’ing being a total bitch for no apparent reason. It perks me right up.

  8. Not sure if this link will work, but this is always good for a laugh, for me anyway! :-)

  9. Here is something to cheer you up:

Gimme some love!! Please?
