Have you ever seen “Mystery Men”? It’s a silly movie, and there’s this one scene where they’re interviewing potential team members, so they can go save the world from some evil guy. This one woman walks up and says “I’m the PMS Avenger. I only work 3 days a month. You got a problem with that?“
“Oh, no… none at all…no ..no problem…” they reply.
Well, I can identify. I got PMS and my strongest desire right now is to get in #3′s truck (a 1991 Explorer, standard transmission, big mud tires, flowmasters so it roars) and go run over someone. Anyone. I dare you to get in my way and piss me off, because I’m already pissed off and I’m just looking for a target right now.
I was going to take Lily to Willow Pond, but I fear my patience level with hearing the same story all over again just isn’t there. And it’s not their fault, so best we not go and inflict my bad attitude on innocent old folks. I’m getting to know them, but not well enough to whine about my emotional upheavals.
I want junk food, caffiene, chocolate (which is not junk food, not the way I eat it) motrin for the impending back cramps, and I need to go to the store for supplies but dammit the last thing I want to do right now is deal with the other morons who shop at StuffMart and their stupid electric buggies and imbecilic children.
And to think, Dr. Mona wants to take my xanax away from me. Sure alrighty fine then, you do that Dr. Mona, and you can come bail me out of jail when I assault someone for being petite.
I am beginning to think a 2 liter bottle of Fresca, a bag of baked Cheetoes, and 6 hours of Pride and Prejudice may be in order. Or The Terminator.
Can you believe that Milo got shot in the head? WAGH! He was one of my favorite characters and now he’s dead in a small pool of blood, with Nadia holding his hand and looking peaked. I sure didn’t see that one coming. I figured they were after Morris, too. Jack’s Pop is a real piece of work. I knew I didn’t like James Cromwell.
(JerseyChick- It’s all about 24…) We record it because it’s on too late, and SD and I watched it last night. I hate it when a favorite character dies. It didn’t bother me when Jack’s brother died, nor did it surprise me when it was his father who did the dirty deed, but Milo? Milo was a Nice Guy! Honorable! Good Things! I hate it when a good guy dies.
