Damnit, I have PMS.

This was an incredibly productive week, and I should be feeling pretty good all around, but instead I spent the morning grumpy and brooding. This should have been a warning sign that it was probably a bad time for me to, oh, start reading about uncontacted tribes (which is ALWAYS depressing reading) but I'm not very quick on the uptake.

Then I followed random links and wound up at this guy and promptly burst into tears (not that it's not a bloody tragic story, but I'm generally not quite so hair triggered.)

I should go paint phalloi or something happy.

PMS Treatments

Not "cures," mind you. But these things help me when the Red Army approaches:

1. Pasta (carbs are soothing)

2. Chocolate

3. A hot bath---use lots of good stuff from Villainess, Lush, L'Occitane, etc.

4. More chocolate

5. Good TV---the Travel Channel, Animal Planet (only do NOT watch the shows like "Animal Cops" where you see abused animals, as this will result in OMGWTFBBQPMS)

6. Did I mention chocolate . . . ?


In relation to 2, 4, & 6:five minute chocolate cake.

Re: PMS Treatments

For whatever reason, I keep reading this last post as, "but I laid my last two eggs this morning." And images of the traditional cliches of squawking women, or outraged, "buh-BAAAAAKKAH," cartoon hen sounds enter my head...every,single.time. She is sad for no chocolate cake for her-if only she could have pushed some through, she could have chocolate love on her nest! Yes, the connotation is sexist and women as hens aren't PC, but still funny as hell to my migrained brain.

I have to share this - I clicked on the link, read the recipe and just below it was an ad saying "how I lost 1 pound a day!" Probably not by eating chocolate cake, huh?

Re: PMS Treatments

I've tried that recipe - needs a pinch of salt for best flavor and I personally think it's better a little less cooked. I have an 800 watt microwave and two and a half minutes is enough... and a lot of folks have thousand watt boxes so be careful.


I get the feeling that recipe is gonna come in reeeeal handy before the end of NaNoWriMo...

Re: 2- Mythbusters is good too. Somehow, watching the crew blow things up for science makes the world a better place... and explosions always make me feel better when I'm PMSing anyway :D
