Thursday Thirteen – PMSing

*my apologies to my male readers [you can just go ahead now and stick your fingers in your ears and “la la la la la laaaaa” down to the bottom]

In honor of my PMS-ing friends (herehere, and I’m sure you can just go on down my blogroll — apparently getting “in-sync” cycle-wise also pertains to blogging together, and not just living together, like in college) I present you with today’s Thursday Thirteen:

13 Signs you may be PMS-ing 

  1. Everyone around you has an attitude problem.
  2. You’re adding deep-fried chocolate to your morning cereal
  3. The dryer has shrunk all of your clothes.
  4. Your husband is suddenly agreeing to everything you say.
  5. You’re using your cellular phone to dial up every bumper sticker that says, “How’s my driving? Call 1-800-###-####.”
  6. Everyone’s head looks like an invitation to batting practice.
  7. You have to pull out the Clearasil – and you’re 43.
  8. You’re counting down the days until menopause.
  9. You’re sure that everyone is scheming to drive you crazy.
  10. The ibuprofen bottle is empty and you bought it yesterday.
  11. You dump the pretzels out of the bag, and eat the salt.
  12. While simultaneously eating a gallon of ice cream.
  13. You cry at commercials one minute, and contemplate assault the next.

Here’s some more funny along the same lines:
{*seriously, though, I hope all of my friends experiencing a funk right now are able to relax and feel like themselves again soon*}



  1. After reading that list, I just have one question, how did you get the video camera in my house?

    Here’s hoping we’re all funk free soon.

  2. Sooo funny, and so true! Love your blog!

  3. my 2 cents says:

    A great list! I can really relate to #10… Advil is a must, about four times a day, for several days.

  4. Le laquet says:

    Lol! Loved the clips from youtube … and *gently rubs the spot on her chin whilst looking around for the clearasil* what’s wrong with vanilla ice-cream and pretzel salt?

  5. Great list!
    Thanks for sharing.
    Have a wonderful Thursday
    My TT is posted

  6. Barbara H. says:

    Oh, my, those videos are priceless.

    And I was wondering, too, at the number of bloggers PMSing at the same time. After I got disproportionately upset over something earlier this week, then started the next day, I thought, “Oh! Maybe that had something to do with it.”

    Sometimes I think the OT instructions about a woman being “unclean” during her cycle were probably a favor to her — at least everyone left her alone then, LOL!!

  7. LOL! Too funny, but also too true! Great list. :) Thanks for the laughs.

    Happy T13. :)

    I can relate to that list! Ask my husband!

    My TT is up..ways to pamper myself in 2007..

  9. Had a hysterectomy several years ago, and believe me, PMS is one thing I DON’T miss. I love your humorous take on it, though! :)

  10. Dane Bramage says:

    Ah the advantages of sigle life. (I am just glad I no longer stay with my sister, a household of seven hormonal women). The list was funny and the videos were great.

    My Thursday Thirteen #25 The Favorite TV Shows Edition Is up so stop by if you get a moment. Have a great Thursday.

  11. The Flip Flop Mamma! says:

    Dangit! The baby’s asleep right here, so I can’t watch the videos!! But the list was hilarious!!!!

  12. Susan Helene Gottfried says:

    Yep, that list looks familiar.

    Sometimes, knowing that you truly ARE part of the sisterhood is enough.

    Happy TT!

  13. How many Pre-menstrual women does it take to change a light bulb?



    Because it just DOES OK?

    [Runs for cover]

  14. Hello!!
    SOOO funny…SOO true, girl!! Thanks for the laugh…happy TT!

  15. HeatherinBeautifulBritishColumbia says:

    Hey Karla, thanks for a great list – it makes me feel more normal! Glad you stopped by my TT.

  16. LOL.. thanks for the laugh! (And for dropping by mine!)

  17. Too funny..loved this….esp….the dryer shrank all your clothes…I fall in this line alot..

  18. I guess it wouldn’t be cool to admit how many of those I relate to. :v}

    That commercial is one of my favorites. Cracks me up every time.

  19. Love the list!
    I’m going to try #5.

    Happy TT

  20. So funny! Those videos were cute too. I don’t know what they are talking about though…I’m never that way. ;)

  21. I’m telling you what – the older I get, the more I think I need to wear a sign during those few days that says “BACK OFF.” :-)

    Love your list…and I love #11 b/c in the past week I have bought Chex Mix, cheddar and sour cream potato chips, tortilla chips, and those Gardetto rye crisp things. I promise they make it all better.
