Tonight, I worked until nearly 10 pm just because I was at work and it was quiet and I was actually accomplishing things. And then I came home and (if you are a guy, you should probably stop reading now) because the meds were having no effect on my cramps and it had been almost 4 hours since I had taken them, I used a different kind of painkiller. My grandmother, great-grandmother and great-aunts are right: a couple of glasses of wine will do more to relieve them than a Tylenol 3 does, and with less damage to your liver. (Well, they drank whiskey, but you get the idea.)
At any rate, after I finished dinner around 11 pm, I ended up having the following text message conversation with my best friend:
: I hung up the pics of Sendhil you gave me. Zena has tried for 2 days to get them off the wall. She thinks they are her shiny new toy. forsquilis
: Geez. Even Zena wants to lick his face. held_enthrall
: Zena has good taste even though she spent her formative years with Miriam. forsquilis
: Dude, it was more like a formative 4 months. held_enthrall
: Yeah, but cats have a different time clock. Me encanta Mohinder. Mohinder is hot. Mmmm Mohinder. That would be the best episode of Heroes. Sylar fighting with his cat over who gets to lick Mohinder. forsquilis
: Sylar has a fish, not a cat. Besides, I think he is allergic to them. That's my own personal canon. I just made it up. held_enthrall
: That's because you are on crack. He can argue with Mr. Muggles, then. forsquilis
: Not even Sylar wants to argue with Mr. Muggles. He'll cut you. held_enthrall
: He would do it for Mohinder. He can distract Mr. Muggles with Claire's toe. She can always grow another one. forsquilis
: Now I completely want to see crack fic where this happens. Sylar would tell her she's got nothing to complain about, since it's not like he's cutting off her head or anything. Mr. Muggles would say, "You're wasting time, psycho! And I want one of her juicy big toes this time!" held_enthrall
: And Claire would whine while she is TK'd to the wall. Sylar would take the toe and put it into Mohinder's tea. Mo would freak out and Sylar could 'comfort' him. forsquilis
: Also? Sylar would totally blame Mr. Muggles for the toe. held_enthrall
: Mo would give the toe a shot of Adam's blood and it would be his assistant. It would live in the clicky box. forsquilis
: Kind of like Thing! Only more annoying. It is Claire, after all. held_enthrall
: Yep. I think Mr. Muggles has laser eyes. Or eyes like Hypno Frog. forsquilis
: Mr. Muggles will one day take over the world. Resistance is futile.
Also, while doing this, I took a survey that popped up when I went to TWoP. When I lived briefly in Buffalo after college, I worked for a survey company, and the horrors of that have predisposed me towards cooperating with surveys. However, after I filled out the page asking what cable channels I regularly watch and then read it more closely, I was rather stunned by the answers I gave. I mean, I know my viewing habits are unusual, but it takes something like this to make me realize just how different they are from most of the females I know. I SWEAR, I AM NOT A GUY!!!!
And now, if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go watch Attack of the Show
or whatever G4 is airing right now. Because, you know, it is OKAY for a girl to watch that kind of thing. Adam Sessler is TOTALLY hot, in a Seth Rogan sort of way! Quit looking at me like that!
