I need help . I have PMS and can feel myself searching for snarky, argumentative threads . I have absloutely no problem admitting that because I need to acknowledge the problem before I can get help.

Would anyone like to join me?



Edited to add that I'd like to learn to spell...

I actually like the drama. I'm going to be busy next week and even busier the next...so, for my entertainment, be snarky for a couple more days, then a little less snarky next week.

Absolutely NO snarkiness between the 1st and 10th of every month.
You can be really really snarky from the 11th to the 23rd. Thanks.

Now you have guidelines and you know when to take a break. I hope that helps.

Me too.

FTR, ICM, I don't think I have ever seen you be snarky. Perhaps you are being a tad hard on yourself.

Thank you! I'm feeling like such a ----- at the moment! The comedy here and support has really put things in perspective for me - I really appreciate it.

I do have company coming in tonight so maybe that will help mellow me out.

Then - PMS usually fries my brain. I've been trying to think of something funny to say for like 5 minutes and nothin'.

ICM-

You should HEAR the stuff that I say outloud when I read some posts. Then I carefully write something that is toned WAY down!

I hear ya! And I don't even have a period to blame it on!!!

Yeah, I'm tired of it too. There are like five threads right now going over, and over and over and over and over the same things....... Aren't we done with this crunchy vs mainstream crap yet? The snarkiness is getting deep. Maybe the drama, defensive attitude is just legitamately hormonal? Love ya ALL anyway!

snark is a legitimate emotional response when one feels feisty yet not entirely confrontational. I like snark. But some might have noticed that before...

Snark Snark Snark Snark...nice word... is it a legit word, or is it a slang term? My dictionary is in the garage... I'm not feelin' snarky. I figured I have more pressing issues like what am I going to have for dinner?

There's definitely a snarkish thing going on around here right now. Have to admit, sometimes I love to just : just for that.

It used to be the tcs threads that I went to if I wanted a good dose of snarkiness (other people's, not my own) but it seems that we're getting it now over more mundane ssues.

Maybe all mention of SUVs, manicures, diamonds, and square footage of houses will be banned sometime. After all, tcs was banned in the end ...... :LOL

For the love of G*d, would somebody stop me from going back to those threads? I cant take it, or stand myself, anymore!

Maybe i should go over to good eating and check out some recipes. I need a new way to make fresh broccoli.

Well, around here, SB3, my kids are almost always nude. I can only imagine what our neighbors think . DS3 (hunter) was naked yesterday when we met the bus that brings our older three home... :LOL The bus driver was a bit put out!

Thanks, Britishmum!

I'm not ready to stop snarking.

Reminds me of this bumper sticker I once saw:

"Sometimes being a bitch is the only thing I have to hold on to". lol

I'll join. I start out with the best of intentions, and seemed to get sucked in way more than I used to. I think I'll blame it on the pregnancy hormones. I have to try real hard to be nice all the time to dh and ds, so it seems to be exploding here.

(Although I still do try hard to be nice here too!)

Hey..... saw a bumper sticker today that reminds me of myself when I'm in such a mood. (can't seem to keep away from these forums right now, no matter how snarky they get. Can't tell if my snarky mood is making me enjoy them or if I'm enjoying them because the threads are making me snarky?)

I have PMS and ESP....... I'm a bitch and I know everything!!!!!!!!!!!

I happen to like snarkiness, so I see no reason for anyone to give it up.

I actually wasn't online for a while, and found all the mainstream vs. AP threads when they were all like 7 pages long, so I have just stayed out of it.

Can I come, too? I've not been too snarky but probably inappropriately posting jokes in the middle of a tense thread. Does that count?

Yay, thanks!

'Course I'm going to go off to bed now. I just satisfied my snarkiness by PM'ing a mod.

Later, recovering snarky sistas!
