the miscellany of friday  
PMS. I did have PMS. Wednesday was a sickeningly bad day, and the next day, yesterday, bang, period. I should have been keeping better track. Some months are worse than others, but this female thing does happen like clockwork. Sudden exhaustion, Super!Libido, and the one Psycho Day From Hell, which is almost always the day before the blood flows. I, um, feel rather better now. And appreciate all the comments, which again as always I want and still vaguely intend to answer but on the other hand the moving finger writes and having writ moves on, so....

Simon. The other day z_rayne linked to a highly cool essay on Firefly's Simon Tam, called Bushwhacked: Outer space, deviant sexualities, and FIREFLY's fanciest lad. Just really fun to read. ("I stand firmly by the assertion that if you call someone a 'man-ape gone wrong thing,' it's actually code for wanting to have hot monkey sex with that person.")

SGA. minnow1212 wrote Face Value, a completely fantastic M/S telepathy story that never goes where you expect it to go exactly (that being a good thing, in how it plays the reader along with a deft hand), and is full of human beings being human. It makes me feel for Rodney and for everyone else--Weir, Cobb, Zelenka. *tiny happy wibble*

SGA 2. We watched "Hide and Seek," "Sanctuary," and "Before I Sleep" last night. All good, and OH MY GOD, PEOPLE, I thought it very possible that you were all collectively and wishfully exaggerating about the jealous gayness of Rodney in "Sanctuary." But you WEREN'T. Holy Hannah. o.O

Clancy. I tried to read a Tom Clancy novel the other day. I got 50 pages into a 9000-page book, and then my eyes glazed over and my brain went to sleep. Too bad. I wanted to read a good CIA novel. Now I'm trying a Kirk McGarvey book by David Hagberg. Not bad so far.

PMS 2. I'm tired. Really really tired. And my face has broken out like a broken thing. I could not look any worse unless aliens were actually bursting from my flesh.

Weather. It's late June and it's cold enough that I saw a guy wearing a trenchcoat and a furry hat with earflaps this morning. Coming up is Seattle Pride and then the Fourth of July, and yet somewhere inside, I can't shake the feeling that it's still February.

And now I sleep work prepare to think about working.
 
 
Current Mood: whatever, dude.

I've tried to come up with another explanation for Rodney's behavior in Sanctuary. And I can't. It's so gay that I could see little purple hearts exploding out of his pores. And I loved that they continued the tiff in Before I Sleep.

Sandy and I laughed out loud when Rodney got in his snarky little dig at John in the beginning of the ep. *g* Also, they stood so close together for a while there by Weir's bed that I thought John was welded to Rodney's back. Heh.

Don't feel silly that you forgot to consider PMS. Even though it happens most months for me, it takes a while for me to ever consider that the feelings might be homonal in origin. You'd think we'd learn, since it's only happened, oh, about 180 times so far. Forgetting is probably some trick of nature to keep us from going to the doctor and demanding removal of our uteruses. or ovaries. whatever.

I'm trying to be sooooo good about not popping into people's journals with alternative remedy suggestions but hey! you're already taking vitamins so: Evening Primrose Oil is a good hormonal balancer, 2000-3000mg a day for PMS. Given depression you may benefit from an omega 3, 6, and 9 supplement as long as it's one which gives you the 2-3000mg of oils which you get in EPO as omega oils can help with depression generally as well as PMS related depression and mood swings.

NB EPO takes quite a while to work, 3 or more months at that does before you notice a difference if you're going to notice a difference.

Hee! I know! The first time I watched it, I wasn't yet into the MsShep fandom, but watching it the second time time, I was all, "Oh, yeah. Almost from the first *minute*, he's seething with jealousy." *girlish squee!*

PMSThe cycle thing is weird. I never experienced PMS much until lately, and lately, it is a living, snarling thing of its own existance (well, nearly). And the last round, symptoms verily like yours: depression, exhaustion, extraordinarily randiness, then boom-blood. Who thought this up?

SGA 2 In "Sanctuary", in the scene after Chaya goes of to meet Athar? Shep lays back on a short bench to rest, but keeps his feet on the ground. This is a good look for him, is all's I'm sayin'. (And, no, no kidding about hysterical Rodney jealousy. Wasn't it fab?)

PMS 2 ::pets you:: I'm sorry. I know just how you feel. ::kisses around potential tiny flesh-bursting aliens::: Again, who thought this up? We should have a word with them.

Actually, it's not uncommon for February and June to be similar in the Puget Sound Country. You can tell them apart because you are fairly unlikely to be awakened by daylight at 4:44 am in February.

I cheer myself by chanting "at least you're not living in a tent, at least you're not living in a tent, at least you're not living in a tent" as I did for five Junes in a row when I was in my early twenties. Funny the extremes one will be driven to to avoid watching television with ones parents.

I'm trying to imagine this as we swelter with 95 degrees....
