Hello all and very sorry I have been gone. Loving the comments tho.

(Sorry Guys) Been down with some Moon Time Madness and alternating between Bengals and Dog, and other than that curled in bed with Advil and hot water bottle.......

Keep me amused with your chatter and I ought to be back with you in a day or two.. Miss you I do!

Love Women's things,


At 14:17 Blogger Adri said...

Ha! Almost missed my flight connection, but not commenting early on a new post!

Sorry youre crampy, Q. Hope you feel better soon!

At 14:22 Blogger spacedlaw said...

Awww... You poor thing.
Take care.

At 14:23 Blogger Marjorie said...

sorry to hear you're crampy. Feel better soon ;-)

At 14:34 Blogger EmilyLady said...

Moon Time sucks. It's good to hear from you.

At 14:39 Blogger Arwenn said...

Hope you feel better soon!!

I usually try to comfort myself by thinking about other cyclical forces of nature like tides or the moon. That and being peeved with men because I'm pretty sure they're somehow responsible :)

At 14:51 Blogger EmilyLady said...

Men are the lucky ones .... no Moon Time. Must be a nice way to live.

At 14:54 Blogger EmilyLady said...

I think I am going outside to enjoy the ... erm ... beautiful cloudy cold afternoon. Think I would like a walk before it starts to (sob) snow again ...

At 14:58 Blogger AletaMay said...

Glad to see you here in the internest where virtual hot water bottles and gentle pats are always ready and waiting!

Take care!

At 14:58 Blogger Erin Underwood said...

I hope you feel better soon, Q!

In the meantime, here's something you might enjoy.
This is the link for a few of the Stonecoast faculty flash readings. Scroll halfway down and then click on the one for Jim Kelly. He reads 10 of the micro stories published by Wired Magazine, and one of those stories was written by the Boss. :-)

Ok, now back to bed with you.

At 14:58 Blogger Ticia said...

Ticky now- talky later.:: Waves::

At 14:59 Blogger Erin Underwood said...

Hey, sorry, that link isn't clickable. Try this:

Flash Readings

At 15:13 Blogger Dragonsally said...

Ack indeed - warm soothing stuff for your abdomen and nice thoughts for the head.

Hope the hormones loosen their hold on you ultrafast.

At 15:15 Blogger Dragonsally said...

for to make Q smile. I thought it was really cute

At 15:36 Blogger DataGoddess said...

Aw, much sympathy, Q.

Not much interesting here to amuse you with, I'll be amused along with you with what the other fiends share, though :-)

At 15:50 Blogger Phiala said...

I like to apply a purring cat. Of course, in my house the challenge is more often to NOT have a purring cat, so that's the default situation.

I am home from the interminable conference. The plan had been to go to the office after the last meeting, but the need to scrape an inch of sleet from the car before I could leave the conference convinced me that I might better just go home.

It wasn't a hard convince. :)

At 16:37 Blogger Dragonsally said...

more smiles for Q and Fiends

I've been caught out like that before. hemmmm.

At 16:38 Blogger Dragonsally said...

Blogger appears to be misbehaving, so here is the actual link

At 16:42 Blogger Dragonsally said...

third time lucky

At 16:53 Blogger gaypet said...

Hope you feel better soon, Q!

Take care!

At 17:05 Blogger dabbler said...

Feel better soon, Fablo, we miss you!

At 18:56 Blogger Jess said...

A moon-themed haiku
Won't work for cramps or headaches.
The werewolf said so.

But some warm beer might
do the trick, or failing that,
wave a divining

rod over your head,
and shout to the moon, Piss off,
you celestial son

of a bitch! Get off
my goddamn ovaries, you
Then feel the tides recede.

If none of it works,
it'll just go to show that
werewolves don't know jack.

At 19:07 Blogger dabbler said...

Love it, Jess

At 19:26 Blogger Unknown said...

*offers cuddles and mango tarts*

I hope you feel better soon.

Some friends and I were talking about how different life might be if men went through Moon Cycles...there was certainty that paid, mandatory leave on crampy days would be enacted into law.


At 19:31 Blogger EmilyLady said...

Marvelous, Jess!

Lorraine, hoping you are feeling better ... hugs and tea from Emily (catchy, is it not?).

At 20:15 Blogger ariandalen said...

Hope you're feeling better, Ms. Fabulous. I'm still trying to figure out how I went from two weeks after you to two-three days before you. Ain't perimenopause grand?

At 20:25 Blogger El said...

Jess, that might be the best poem I've ever read. Excellent.

At 20:51 Blogger Beez said...

::screeches in, sirens wailing:

:runs over to prone, huddles Quiche:

Medic!! Morphine!!

At 21:28 Blogger ivenotime said...

Baton Rouge Adri- hope you have fun! Feel better soon Lorraine - hot water bottles are so soothing Moontime hit Rocket too for the first time, and she is a proud little lady wearing her denim diaper. cannot believe she actually likes wearing it! thank fod tho!

At 21:41 Blogger Ticia said...

Lorraine, I'm sorry you're suffering. I hope tea, rest, and Bengals are helping. If not, Beez may have the right idea. :-)

Jess - I'm with El, that poem was awesome.

Thanks for the laughs and links everybody. I know that they were for Lorraine, but I peeked too.

And Beez, I was laughing so hard, I couldn't breathe. Your post was fabulous!!

At 22:11 Blogger AletaMay said...

Great poem Jess.

Feel better Quiche.

El -- have fun with your hair.

I am going to try an early to bed night tonight I think.

At 22:39 Blogger Stacy Hurt said...

Jess that poem rocks. Love it.
Fablo; warm, gentle thoughts your way. :)

At 23:48 Blogger Kitty Cat said...

we are in synch me dear.
i too have been struck...
xox talk soon

At 00:34 Blogger Na said...

Well, big sympathies to those who're feeling crampy and all. Means I'm soon. Could be the why of the big ol' funk my head's been in all day.

Siri and DG and others, hope pain of all sorts is receding.

Followed your progress across the south on Twitter, Adri! Glad you made your connection.

I got pictures of the balloon animals t'other day, but haven't downloaded 'em yet. Did find the web site, the group is The Twisted Ones. :D

At 05:13 Blogger Dragonsally said...

That's real balloon art Na.
Would have been fantastic watching them make things.

At 05:46 Blogger Phiala said...

Yes, if men had monthly cycles, many things would be different.

We get a reasonable amount of sick leave at work. My (clueless, idiotic, disliked) boss lectures people who don't have many sick leave hours saved up. Obviously if you use sick time regularly, you are slacking, taking it for personal time when you aren't really sick, because HE doesn't need to take time off frequently.

Er, right. One of his favorite people to lecture has migranes, another has chronic health issues. Both are female.

I wish I could take a day off a month, but I'm rarely quite that ill, so I take lots of drugs and go to work anyway (because of the supportive work culture, obviously). Less appealing on days when I'm in the field, tho.

(For fiends on facebook, yes, this is the same guy.)

At 08:03 Blogger Dan Guy said...

I keep waiting for a white flash
to take me out of this training
and drop me on the island.

At 09:08 Blogger Jess said...

I'm pleased to have delighted everyone via a haiku-poem which contains both swearing and the word ovaries. Fod bless you all. :D

Hope you're feeling much better today, Quiche!

And Sue, back up-- why is your dog wearing pants? And are there photos?

It's snowing. But it's also sunny. I think the weather sprites are toying with me. Bah!

*shakes fist at sky*

At 09:12 Blogger spacedlaw said...

The weather appears to tergiversate,
Half way through rain and – possibly - sunshine
Balancing act on the tip of a wing
A single breath of wind lost to the world.

At 09:19 Blogger EmilyLady said...

Good morning, Fiends. It is quiet here. It's always quiet after a snowfall (though much of the snow melted during the night - yay!).

Hoping you're feeling well, Quiche, after a night's rest.

At 09:27 Blogger Jess said...

Lovely, N! :)

Now on top of the snowshine, I hear a bird going tweety-tweet. What's it gonna be already? Aaagh.

At 09:58 Blogger TommyB said...

Home myself with 2nd day of Nasty Headcold. At least I have moved past the "needle in the ear" stage and on to the "Barry White" stage (voice is an octave lower than usual).

Putting a major dent in Wife's tea supply. Backfilling that will be Job #1 when this is over.

To everyone feeling under whatever weather you are having; Salute! (raises mug)

At 10:07 Blogger FabulousLorraine said...

Hi All,

Creeping out to wave a little. Loving the chatter from my phone. Thinking I may actually be ill, this seems a bit much for a moon time....

I want to feel better......

At 10:10 Blogger FabulousLorraine said...

It's the House of Plague here! Run!

Feel better all...

At 10:11 Blogger Jess said...

Artlols for those who need it:

Tiny Art Director

An illustrator asks his 4-year-old daughter what to draw. Daughter critiques the result.

At 11:09 Blogger ariandalen said...

Jess: Now on top of the snowshine, I hear a bird going tweety-tweet. What's it gonna be already? Aaagh.

It's called Spring, Jess. ;)

At 11:38 Blogger Erin Underwood said...

It sounds like Miss Q caught that damned flu.

At 12:01 Blogger ariandalen said...

In the new Fiendocracy there shall be no Flu. Plague is a different matter.

At 12:03 Blogger EmilyLady said...

I WANT SPRING! You poor thing, Quiche.

At 12:04 Blogger Erin Underwood said...

Perhaps she's going zombie. :-D

Zombie Qs never catch the flu, but they are likely to have the plague.

At 12:18 Blogger Marjorie said...

Oh, poor Q. Virtual tea and hugs. Hope you feel better soon.

At 13:01 Blogger ariandalen said...

In this House of Plague
The beds keep their sleepers
Deep within their sheets.

In this House of Plague
Only Bengals prowl the halls,
Keeping watch day and night.

In this House of Plague
Creaking walls and rolling floors
Outmoan sleeping victims.

In this House of Plague
Doors lead ever inward 'til
Outside is mere dream.

But, this House of Plague
Will retreat before Fiendish
Pranks, poems and prose.

At 13:10 Blogger Ani said...

Sorry you're down, but you've got some fine fiends sneding the good vibes your way. This always amuses me for a web-based mini-vacation:

Sending warmth from Urbana...

At 14:33 Blogger Rubius said...

Much better than Advil and a hot water bottle is the cure of laughter. Hopefully this may help.

this makes me clap and cheer... but they missed out on the Baltic states

and that reminded me of this which I just love

which naturally lead to this

At 14:44 Blogger ivenotime said...

Hi all! Jess, Rocket is wearing a diaper (denim with trim no less!) as she is in heat for the first time. I plan on breeding her, maybe next cycle, maybe the one after. I have given her a blanket to "nest" with as she was doing so with the living room couch cushions- so she paws and arranges it. really cute, but boy has she been squirrelly, just nuts (doesn't moontime affect us all like that??) i think i am done tho, in april it will be a year, and its an odd feeling. Qui- hope you feel better soon, stay warm (as your state sent its blast of cold here so we are now in the deathgrip of winter again)!

At 14:54 Blogger Na said...

There's snow here today, but not intensely cold. Just, er, announcing this since it's coming east across the continent, presumably.

Poems here are rocking!

Adri just twittered this url/ article about privacy settings on fb. Since so many Fiends are on there, I wanted to spread the word.

At 16:27 Blogger Rubius said...

ahhh... I lost a day... I thought it was Friday... I was wrong.

Dammit.. I even turned off my alarm this morning thinking tomorrow would be Saturday. I even took out the garbage last night!!! How did this happen??


This feels worse than when I screwed up Daylight savings time this year... showed up at the wrong time a week before Daylight Savings and then showed up an hour late ON Daylight Savings. sigh

At 16:38 Blogger Marjorie said...

To cheer you up Q - Dublin report (part two)

At 16:38 Blogger Na said...

Aw, Rubius. Been there, done that! Recently, on the Friday thing. {hugs}

At 16:49 Blogger Marjorie said...

Na, thanks for reposting Adri's tweet - (I went into FB to follow some of its advice but my connection is playing up so haven't got very far, yet)

Rubious, you need this site again (Maybe this should be added to the site, Q, so we can all check whether it's Friday yet when we visit?

At 16:49 Blogger Chantrelle said...

I didn't know we could sync up cycles when we only hung out online.


We have a nice sunny day here which makes the mood better if not the tummy.

I have acupuncture in an hour, ben and i were running around the other night and i slipped on the hardwood floor and fell back on my butt...i caught myself with my hands in a way that wouldn't hurt a normal person but totally wrenched my stupid wrists so hopefully she can fix them today :(

Hope you're feeling better Lorraine!!!

At 17:32 Blogger Na said...

Chantrelle, hope the acupuncture works wonders!

Adri, ariandalen, if it's of interest to you, Ms. AFP is going to be in Austin (for SXSW) and Houston next month.

At 17:33 Blogger Na said...

And Fluffy - sorry, I just knew there was at least one other Texan Fiend I couldn't think of... until I clicked "post" of course.

At 21:22 Blogger Ticia said...

Hallo fiends! I've really enjoyed all of the creative linking and writing today.

Reading this blog helps make the workday speed by!

At 00:26 Blogger spacedlaw said...

I had a funny moment of confusion just now, reading a comment a girl had made on my choice of music on my "Title" blog. It was a song by Patti Smith and she was saying that the song had been written by the Boss and I went "hu?" thinking "he's nowhere old enough for that" - thinking of Neil, obviously - before reading on and realizing she meant Bruce Springsteen! (And I did know he was called The Boss too. And that he had written songs for Patti Smith. Meh)
