Estrogen Week

I hereby proclaim it Estrogen Week at Ilyka Damen. Because why not? And because I'm not writing a damn thing about Hunter S. Thompson, forget it, you can't make me.

Now enjoy this banner from Michele. I know I do.

(New posts will appear below this one, because--that banner! It's awesome!)

Oh, how perty! [insert girly squeal] If I have a tea party will you come? And wear your best bonnet?

I admire you for not writing a frickin' thing about HST. I had nothing to say about him either.

And, hey, estrogen week. Go for it. (No migraines allowed, though.)

No migraines allowed, though

Ha! The consensus seems to be that they're tension headaches. I get a migraine-like photophobia, but no aura; plus, they're global and always start at the base of the neck. And, sho'nuff, pop me in a tub of hot bath water, or get me a massage, and that does more than any amount of Aleve or aspirin will do for the pain.

Only mention it 'cause I had one today. Maybe the politics doesn't give me the vapors; maybe it gives me instead the tension headaches.

It's Estrogen Week, eh?

It really explains a lot. At least it justifies my rabid case of PMS which has me wanting to laser my bloated uterus out.

And the headaches? They do sound like tension-maybe a permanent masseuse is what you need, which sounds like a business expense to me.

Hunter who?

Hunter who?

Eeeeeeeee-zackly. Meaning no disrespect to the people who dug him; I just never got on that train.

If I wanted an uwashed "free thinker" I'd go to the local college.

Nice banner. I've been experiencing Estrogen Week in my own way. Right here in my own home.

And boy is my husband pissed.

Freakin' trackback is busted on my site again. (Not that it was all that freakin' important. . .)
