"You know how men talk about PMS as this miserable, barely survivable time when you have to watch what you say, be careful not to make too much noise, swallow your real thoughts, make constant concessions to avoid conflict, and accept sudden outbursts of anger as commonplace? (aka things I unconsciously do around many men I know and love)

The masculine dread of PMS is basically “there are five days a month when the burden of emotional labor is reversed, and that brief (and incomplete) inversion is my personal eldritch horror, such that men discuss it with other men in hushed tones.”

-a fiendish thingy" on "Where's My Cut?" On Unpaid Emotional Labor (way the fuck down)

*just... marvels at that one for a minute*

Jon Stewart [to Martha]: You know what we do when we have to fire people? We send them a strippergram. It's great. And until he takes his shirt off, everyone's having fun. Afterwards, it's like, 'oh... really?' *sad face*

Oi, writer-people!

Which is more interesting:
-people stuck in overtly (not their religion) religious situations that they can't get out of
-chess metaphors with a girl that goes, "I like the queens" and then runs over all the pieces in her path with a queen while going "NYEEEERRRRMMMM!!"
or
-a woman fighting to be respected in a male-dominated job?

Does your answer change if it has to be under, say, 1000 words?

Also, supposedly White Wolf results are tomorrow. We shall see when I wake up.

(Today's trivia: did you know Jon Stewart is a full inch shorter than me? He's hot, he's 43, he's shorter than me. I'm not sure how I feel about that. However, I will still use my spare time to ponder the possibilities of converting to Judaism.)

Key quotes from tonight:

The "General Grant" and the HORN

Bill O'Reilly: Civilian lawyers and human rights groups are allies of terror!

Bill O'Reilly: Let's tell John McCain torture WORKS!

Jon: (re: the plane crash that everyone survived) "IT WASN'T A MIRACLE!"
[clip of EMT worker talking about their excellent response time, etc.]
Jon: "FINALLY! Some kudos to human excellence in the field. Those EMTs are awesome..."
EMT worker: "And it was really a miracle..."
Jon: "NO! IT WAS THEIR SATANIC COMPETENCE!"

News Reporter: "And is it just me, or is there a baby boom of pandas in this country?"
Jon: "Perhaps it's a miracle! Or perhaps it's [ominous] SEASONAL BREEDING PATTERNS."

Jon: "You're too white to say schmutz."

Jon Stewart: "Does [Novak] absorb light?"
Miles O'Brien: "I think he glows in the dark."

Alex says: God damn it.
pbradley says: What?
Alex says: *burns [name cut]*
pbradley says: Ah.
Alex says: CAN'T PISS ME OFF IF YOU'RE DEAD
pbradley says: Masochibi?
Alex says: It's got a little red bum and everything.
Alex says: "Please suggest the way (apart from one human sacrifice per session) where I'm going to reap the necessary mana. The only possible strategy (and even that will be barey adequate) is to min-max each and every character with Stamina 5, Intelligence 2+, Medicine 2+, Giant, Holistic Awareness, and Quick Healer. Scourge 2 Health and one Stamina and spend an hour to heal them back [...]"
Alex says: I CRY.
pbradley says: Stop it. Jesus commands you.
Alex says: Jesus isn't the one crying.

May I say that Masochibi is horrendously cute.
