I hate my period.

For the few men that read this journal, avert your eyes.

Alright, so it's that time of the month again. This morning I was putting on my pad in my sleep-induced stupor when I realized something strange: the little slip of paper that held the wings together was wishing me, and I quote, "A happy period."

What the fuck?

Thanks a lot, assholes. In between the vaginal bleeding, the mood swings, the cramping and the general shitiness, I will, indeed, do my damn best to have "a happy period."

What kind of phrasing is that, anyway? Who has a happy period? Periods aren't supposed to be happy. They're supposed to be your body's way of reminding you that you didn't get laid this month and therefore are not bearing a child. Since when is that happy?

I fucking hate my period.

... Wow. That's just... wow. o_o; Seriously messed up. Whoever designed that thing was on crack or obviously a man.

I'm pretty sure pads, tampons, high heels and bras were all invented by men.

I vote yes. Oh, and pantyhose.

You know one thing women invented? The bulletproof vest.

Always, I take it. Mine say that too. And I had the same reaction. Sigh.

>_O I'm so picky about pads, and the only brand I like has to wish me a happy period.

I hated Always until they got that new cotton dry weave thing. I used to like Stayfree, but now Always works just fine. And is apparently, happy.

That's funny in a really crappy way.
I'm mentally sending you some Midol and a gigantic bar of chocolate. We're talking a brick of chocolate here. Feel better.

You know what I could go for right now?

Frozen European chocolate.

That sounds fabulous.
I've also heard that the Häagen Dazs chocolate sorbet is excellent.
