Blaming physiology

May 7, 2006

This weekend I did a lot of lying around, and not much actual doing of stuff. It was kind of warm on Saturday morning, so lying around in front of the fan was just perfect. At the time, I thought it was this upturn in the weather that was causing my intense euphoria, but in hindsight I’m pretty sure it was just hormones.

Hormones. Good excuse, them. Crying? Hormones. Euphoric? Hormones. Grumpy? Hormones. Bitchy? Hormones. Bad hair/skin/clothes day? Hormones, hormones, hormones. Some women say that you should never use the Hormones excuse, as it allows men to dismiss any uppity behaviour on your part as being due to hormones, even when you have a legitimate issue, usually with the aforementioned men. I don’t care, it’s such a multi-purpose, and usually accurate explanation. I think the men are just jealous. Nevermind, they’ve got an excuse too. It’s called testicles. I think this was actually in an episode of Coupling. Annoying behaviour? Testicles. Grumpiness? Testicles. Perhaps not quite so multi-purpose, but still good.

My hormones are being very noisy lately, resulting in lots of cooing over pictures of puppies, and other such clucky behaviour. I have been ignoring them. la la la fingers in ears…

So, having calmed down from my hormonal euphoria I proceeded to lie around a bit more, read a bit of Freakonomics, and started reading the Amalah archives. Loooong. But highly entertaining and easy to identify with. What I needed to do, but haven’t done at all, is sort out my/our internet presence. I’ve got half-formed blogs everywhere, fiddy-kajillion photos to upload to Flickr and organise, and an index.html to create. Pity I can’t remember any html. So, reading the html book is on the list too.

Off to see some new Bruce Willis movie tonight with some girls from work. I know nothing about it, but rather than read any reviews I’m going to just let myself be surprised.
