I’m trying out the new tumblr app. So far so good! It seems to have addressed most of my problems with the old one. I have tags now in my posts, I can access my messages, and it even turns when I turn my phone sideways! Spiffy!
I used to get headaches. This was a thing, but easily solvable by carrying advil around, which pretty much invariably knocked it out.
Headache evolved into Migraine!
Now advil doesn’t touch them, and I thought I had a nice reliable solution with excedrin, except apparently not so much.
I took it at 1:00 this morning, when it was so bad I was considering calling out of work (which I haven’t done in three years, because calling out on an open is a monstrous thing to do to everybody who works that day, and customers will be talking about it for a week). When I woke up, it was slightly better, and I decided that I would at the very least open, and hopefully manage to get out at 8:30, when the third person came in. Turns out the schedule was a little wacky, and the earliest I could get out was 11:00. Ouch. But I was there, and I had to do what I had to do. A shot of espresso helped a little, once. It came in waves. For part of the day, I was wearing my sunglasses indoors, and using all my willpower not to chuck a steaming pitcher at the little kids screaming their lungs out. Every glare from a passing car window outside, and every screech or loud beep was a knife in my right eye. I shut a timer off and told it, out loud, that if it did it again, I was going to take it home with me, find a roof, and throw it off it.
Also, terrible coughing, which I’m seeing a doctor about tomorrow, was making it worse. And I couldn’t stop coughing.
I finally managed to get home, put hot rags on my face, and laid down with my sleep mask on for a few hours, and it seems to be gone.
I’m seeing my neurologist about these soon. Hopefully next week. It’s damned difficult to make an appointment when my schedule changes every week and he’s in high demand.
Your Result: You belong in HOUSE STARK - Winter is Coming
House Stark is the most influential and notable power in the North. From their stronghold at Winterfell, the Starks guard the old ways against the dishonourable and fractious houses of the Seven Kingdoms. Their devotion to honour and the old gods wins them few friends in the court of King’s Landing and beyond, but this very same dedication to tradition commands respect from the lords of the North. Those Northmen who bend the knee to Eddard Stark have been hard won with respect, devotion, and justice. His sons show signs that they too will be well-respected and beloved leaders in the North upon ascending to the lordship of this enduring and storied house.

I had a bunch of zombie dreams last night, or maybe just one really really long and disjointed one. I can’t really be sure. But then after I woke up and drifted back to sleep, I had a dream that I actually got up out of bed, and nobody was around, and that too ended up being a zombie dream. Did I sleep and forget something that happened in the news? Has there really been a zombie outbreak and I just forgot about it?
I don’t think that that’s real science. And GOOOOODDDDD GOD, I need to be in NY
No, really! You get a better view of the stars because you don’t have the ambient light generated by a city! You can see the glow of Manhattan in Pennsylvania, over the Pocono mountains, it blocks out most of the weaker stars.
There’s a character I want to bring into an X-Men-type universe, but I’m having a hard time thinking of a mutation to give her. I keep on thinking of boring ones, and the couple of generators I used did not return anything helpful, so I turn an appeal to my tumblr folks. Any ideas?
