Hormonal and Other Stuff

Yesterday was a bad day.

I argued for over an hour with strangers on line about the PETA protesters. I was very annoyed with a coworker (still a bit pissed) over stupid shit. I was frustrated by my slow moving programs - all of them! I was hot as hell! You know that feeling that if one more thing happens you just might cry?

Yesterday was no different from my average Tuesday. People are argumentative online every day. My coworker hasn't changed. It's actually cooler in Atlanta this week than it's been for the last month.

Why the grouchies yesterday? I forgot my patch - my hormonal patch that I'm supposed to stick to my belly on Sunday. I was distracted after my shower by a computer game calling me (effing Zuma - can you believe it?) and I forgot all about it. I made it through Monday without incident, but yesterday I was the bitchiest nice girl you'll ever meet.

I rented a movie over the weekend and watched it last night, "March of the Penguins." I want a penguin for my next boyfriend! I'm not kidding! Penguin love is so charming and sweet. I'm sure you've all seen this movie - I just happen to have a "contrary gene" - if EVERYONE goes to see something, I won't - I don't like to jump on the bandwagon, but I really made a mistake in missing this on the big screen.

Who of you still haven't rented Snatch? Did you hear me last time? Follow my instructions now and take thee online to and rent this movie - or you can go old school and go to the store. Guy Ritchie is my dude!

There's a Ritchie film that I can't get my hands on: Revolver. Please send me a line if you have a copy - I NEED to see this. I'm willing to contact me.

I want to get serious about an Atlanta Metro meet/greet. Who's down? C'mon, it'll be fun: food, drinks, jali talking about herself... good times.

I had to change the comments settings since that anonymous idiot left his manifesto here a few days ago. Sorry folks, but I refuse to be a victim of the craziness.

Lex said...


I postponed the Meetup I suggested months ago until you were well. I couldn't imagine it without you!!

I'm going to be in ATL Sept. 22-23. But if you pick another date, please let me know. I'm in DC, but ATL is my home away from home. I'll come for sure.

Trying2BMe said...

"The bitchiest nice girl"... I love that phrase, I may use it during my next mood day.

As for the "Meet", I'm in baby, just say when and where and I'll make it happen. I live in the boondocks, but it's just a short drive to civilization.

~tip toes~
OK I am backing out

SHHHHHHHHH ~whispers~
We are hunting rabbits!

Christina_the_wench said...

I love me some penguins. Opus from Bloom County. He is my dude. Nevermind that he is a comic strip character. LOVE him.

Where's my meds?

Captain Smack said...

I don't know, Jali... I never saw that penguin movie, I just don't trust those little things. Birds that fly in the water? There's something wrong there. Maybe I'm just old fashion.

~Macarena~ said...

That manifesto was impressive; holy cow! Can't you delete comments?

You know that feeling that if one more thing happens you just might cry?
Yes! And I want my mommy! I just read something about a woman who wanted to crawl into bed and pull the covers over her head, but couldn't, because she was the mom.

I was the bitchiest nice girl you'll ever meet.
Not unless you kept people waiting in line for gas while you detailed your car.

Sonia said...

Thank GOD I'm not the only nice girl who takes the occasional trip to Bitchville! LOL!

And I'm down with some meetin' and greetin'! Just let me know when!

Cunning Linguist said...

*sigh* I came here on a whim and now I have to go rent Snatch. I hate when clicking leads to chores. This damn flick had better be good, I tell ya.

Nick said...

Maybe I need a hormone patch.

heartinsanfrancisco said...

I hope you're feeling better now. Bitchy or not, we still love you.

Lightning Bug's Butt said...

Patch? What gives? Are you a professional wrestler or something?

Amadeo said...

When I start getting annoyed I tend to float...disconnect from everything going on and retreat into my own little world.

CP said...

Ohhhhhh, I would so love a meet and greet! I would drive to ATL for THAT!!! Let me know what comes of it. And, I saw Revolver and it rocked. I think I still may have it (illegally) downloaded on my puter! *L*


Melanie said...

one more thing... well, you probably wont make that mistake again!

i wish I lived closer, i would come to an atlanta meet up. :sighs.

mist1 said...

Tell me when and where the meet up is. I'll be there. Unless it's raining, because my hair doesn't look good on rainy days.

awaiting said...

Ya know, I am moving to the ATL in the spring...maybe sooner.

I can't wait to get there.

I'll be all for a group meet!

Elaine said...

What's this? An Atlanta meet and greet?? Damn. I'm so far away....sniff...

CapCity said...

Oooooh, I LOVE the movie SNATCH! now, i'm in search of Revolver, too! thanx for the head's UP!

Have a great weekend, Sistah Jali!

Fairmaiden327 said...

Jali, I haven't been checking in because I thought you still weren't posting. Anyway, I'm going to have to talk to you abouts some women's stuff if you get my meaning. I am so ready to age gracefully. Love.

EsLocura said...

I love penguins, and am so damn sad about the meet.

Tom Serafini, Actor to the Stars! said...

Hi Jali. Hope you're recovering nicely. Haven't been here in a while because, well, I'm a douche. Revolver hasn't been released yet by the way. Just a matter of time I'm sure...

Restaurant Gal said...

Haven't seen Penguins, yet. Hormones--yeah, there they are. Meet/greet in Atlanta???? If it's a Sunday or Monday in September, I may just pop in. Keep me in the loop.

phishez_rule said...

Aww, I hope you're feeling all normal now. I hate being hormonal. I know I'm irrational, but I can't pinpoint why, and it pisses me off no end.

Which makes it worse!

PETA suck. Stupid misinformed... misinformers.

M@ said...

Still defending dog fighting, Jalil?

M@ said...

I'm going to rent Meatballs and Amazon Women. I've been meaning to get around to that for the past twenty years.

dalia said...

snatch was an awesome flick--that, and lock, stock & two smoking barrels. guy ritchie is a genius. correction, WAS a genius, till he married that madonna person...

it's the little things... said...

One of my children has signed up for PETA. It's probably the 11 year old vegetarian I'm raising. You can't even kill a cockroach in my house without someone screaming bloody murder about what if he was a father, and what will happen to his children?

Luke Cage said...

I'm all late to the party and stuff miss Jali. Now you know a brotha is down for a Atlanta meetup. But give a brotha some time now. Remember some of us may just be coming from out of town and don't know the lay of the land! Great idea luv! Now, make it happen.

jali said...


If you'll be in Atlanta then I'll make sure I see you! I'll hold the dates!

I can't wait to meet you too! Can you come when lex is here?

This is a no-hunting zone.

How was the weekend - no - not this past weekend - THAT weekend?

Awww - just watch the movie!

You remembered the gas station story! That's nice.

I'll call soon to let you know. Where's the blog, momma???

cunning linguist,
did you name yourself or was the earned?

I have patches to spare!

Love you too!

Yup... wrestling.

I read your blog - I know!

Mr. Ritchie is sexy to me because of his movies! I WANT REVOLVER!

I would love to meet you. maybe we can plan something in the future and meet somewhere else.

Rain or shine we want you there. I'll by you some Nutress or whatever crap makes your hair stay straight.

You in ATL? Hell yeah! I can't wait chica.

I'll pour one for "my homie who ain't here". I WILL meet you someday.

If you hear of any other Ritchie stuff, let me know! Hope your weekend was good.

I'm not exactly doing this gracefully. I'd love to talk to you.

We'll post photos - I'm sad you can't come too.

You're not a douche. Well, as far as I can tell you're not. Thanks for the good wishes.

The weekend of 9/22 - I really want you to come!

I'm back to normal - which is still a little strange.

No effing comment!

I love his movies! I like Madonna -ever since Desperately Seeking Susan.

I'm afraid of some of the PETA membership.

Can you come at the same time lex comes ? If not, we'll talk and set up another time.

SRB said...

Awh I cried my eyes out at March of the Penguins. I didn't like the big bully birds that came to snatch up the poor beebee penguin. *sniffle*

Yeah, and Zuma kept me up many a night, that damn frog. UGH.

Camille Alexa said...

Snatch is fantabulous.

katrice said...

Zuma is a drug. I have been clean for 18 days now.

Ironically, just today, out of the blue, I decided I wanted to see March of the Penguins for the first time.

I wish we could make the meet-up, but I have to work. I hope you guys plan a do-over.

Hormonal health and natural hormone balance are really serious problems in our lives(((
