i hope you are all happy to know that i started my period today and it is cramp-city. did you know that it is obligatory to blog about your period every month? well it is. don't you read womens' blogs? we never tire of complaining about menstruation here in north america. it's not like that in all countries, tho. PMS is considered a public construct of western civilization's victorianism. some countries know nothing of it whatever. but i like the cultures that have the men and women live seperately for like two weeks out of every month!!!! would that not be the coolest? and i think during that time, the women get to totally chill and recreate while the men do all the work! woot! sign me up!
