I'm at that time in my cycle where I'm obsessive and unsettled, it's difficult to concentrate and there's only one thing on my mind: fringes.

 I have reason to believe that a woman's 'Do I Want a Fringe?' cycle is actually aligned with the 584-day cycle of Venus.

It's the planet named for a goddess of beauty, a personification of femininity - and hair has been the most enduring symbol of a women's beauty throughout history. And 584 days is almost precisely the length of time it takes to have a fringe cut, grow it out, ask your friends and family to never let you get a fringe again, forget about that, and begin to think about maybe getting a fringe.
