The movers will be here in 7-9 hours, and I still have yet to pack most of my kitchen, or my computer, and I'm out of packing tape.

Also, I packed all of my clean clothes, with none for tomorrow.

I clearly win at planning.

New plan: get up early, go to store for more tape, come home and pack until the movers get here (why oh why did I opt for the 8am-10am slot?) and then, uh, move. And then move the cats. And then take a nap.

By the way, guys, this week has sucked. Tuesday night I could not fall asleep until about 3am, due to hormones. Wednesday I was craaaaaannnnnnnky due to hormones and a lack of sleep. Thursday I was sick as a dog and came home from work to sleep pretty much all day. Friday, today, my stomach is still a bit delicate and I woke up with a killer headache from sleeping with my head at the wrong angle. It's like it's my week to be picked on my the universe. But you know what? The universe can go jump off a cliff. I'm moving into an apartment where a guy comes around every night to take out my trash, and that is awesome.

(I'm really glad I like ginger ale, though)

1) The doctor gave me a shot. Well, technically a nurse did, but the Dr prescribed it, and also drugs. Rescon? A lady at work has spoken highly of it in the past, so nom nom nom pills I guess. They do not make me drowsy like all the warning stickers warn, which is odd (usually I'm tackled over the head by side effects, especially drowsiness. I cannot take Benadryl, period) but good. And since I've gotten home I've been having more productive coughs than those stupid lazy passive aggressive coughs.

2) I made a delicious dinner tonight. I love cooking. Not a new recipe, the vodka-tomato sauce stuff, on penne with venison sausage from my freezer. But oh man delicious.

3) I am 99% for sure getting a kitten. A lady at work has kittens at her house. They are only 2-3 weeks old, so it'll be a few more weeks, but I'm looking forward to it. I told her I want the runt, or the most docile, of the litter. This way Tesla and the kitten will get along. I'm kind of hoping I get a male cat, so I can name him Annie Jump Cannon, and thus continue (or establish?) a trend of naming cats after "scientists of the opposite gender with awesome names". I don't know what I would name another female cat. Hawking would be a fun name to yell at a cat.

4) Lost. Huh. The end stumped me. extremely vague possible spoiler goes here ) And oh man, I cried. Again.

5) These little 3.5oz ice cream things are amazing. Just enough ice cream to satisfy a craving, but not so much that I can't eat it all and have to stick the rest in the freezer to be freezer-burned for three years before I throw it out. And also man, the flavors are YES. Strawberry Cheesecake ice cream, for a dollar? YES PLEASE.

6) This post is very disjointed.

7) JESS HAVE YOU FINISHED 7TH SON YET?

8) LJ's latest news post makes me nervous. The attitude behind it, anyways. The changes I can accept- fine, LJ is a business, and business is business. But the sneaky underhandedness and the lying and the spin and all that I don't like. I love livejournal, and I don't want it run to the ground by stupid jerkfaces! I kind of wonder how much it would cost to buy LJ, and if we could get enough users to donate to the cause so that the users could own LJ and put competent users in charge. It would never happen, though.

9) I wonder if I can make it to 10.

10) Yes, I can.

11) I'm going knitting tomorrow. A church down the street is apparently hosting regular "craft nights", mainly for scrapbookers but also who whoever wants to come. Free! I'm going with a lady from work. I'm taking some of the yarn I got in Michigan (don't ask how much I spent at Threadbear, it's shameful) and playing with it. Ideas, I has them.

12) I kind of like the show "Eli Stone". Not enough that I watch it regularly, I find it cute. I would love it if the writers focused on the characters more. I mean, I get that the entire gimmick of the show is the visions and how they work into real life, and it's cool and all, but I have to really love characters before I'm hooked on a show, especially one with a formulaic plot. I mean, come on, House is completely formulaic, but oh how I love it, because of the characters. If Eli Stone had more awesome characters, I would probably be hooked. But it doesn't so I only watch it if I'm feeling seriously veggie-like. Or I'll only watch the first ten minutes to get the plot of the hour, like tonight, then turn the TV off.

13) I want Pushing Daisies back.

My headache is trying REALLY hard to come back. I am refusing to let it, though. Ibuprofen at about 1, and when that didn't work I took Excedrin at about 2 when it started hurting in my eyes again. It seems to be fighting the headache, but it's not gone yet.

GO AWAY HEADACHE. YOU ARE NOT WELCOME HERE. LEAVE.

A coworker also had a headache yesterday, and her daughter. We have decided that it's aliens trying to steal our brains. I had the worst headache because I have the best brain. Clearly.

Well, I've never had a headache quite like that before.

This morning, I got to work with a headache. By about 9, is was pretty bad. I took some ibuprofen and hoped it would go away. It didn't. By about 11, light was hurting my eyes. After lunch, everything seemed too bright. More ibuprofen at about 1 didn't help, and by 2 I was spending more time with my eyes closed than open. Looking at paper was extremely uncomfortable- it seemed like it was extremely bright white paper! Right as I was deciding that maybe it was time to ask to go home, T came over and asked me if I needed to go home. I nodded and was out the door in about 5 minutes. I put on my sunglasses and put down my sun visor (cloudy gray day as it was, it was too much light for me) and drove home in a daze. Home was the best thing ever. I laid down in my dark bedroom and pulled the blankets over my head and my eyes said "YES THANK YOU" and I fell asleep in a few minutes. I woke up at about 6:30 feeling right as rain.

Had some weird dreams. I was a spy, cutting up walls and ceilings trying to get into a girl's room upstairs from the room I was in, and finally someone helped me get in there and I found tapes of myself. Apparently the girl I was trying to spy on had been spying on me.

I think it was a non-aura migraine. According to Dr Wikipedia, these are the signs of a "Migraine without Aura":

1. Headache attacks lasting 4-72 hours when untreated
2. At least two of the following characteristics:
* Unilateral location
* Pulsating quality
* Moderate or severe pain intensity
* Aggravation by or causing avoidance of routine physical activity
3. During the headache there must be at least one of the following associated symptom clusters:
* Nausea and/or vomiting
* Photophobia and phonophobia

Well, the sucker lasted at least 6 hours, was definitely more on my right side, was pulsating viciously, like a drill against my temple but it also hurt all over my right side of my head, and fell on the "moderate" part of the scale ("inhibits, but does not wholly prevent usual activities"). I don't know about anything with physical activity aggravating it, but I definitely didn't want to move at all. There was some work I just didn't do because it would have involved going to the copier. And whoa photophobia.

Of course, there's also a chance that's not what it was- I was not completely debilitated like most migraine sufferers report- I mean, I was able to function, albeit at a very limited capacity, and photophobia is not a new thing for me. I've always been a least a little bit sensitive to light. The sun is evil, and I always have to turn down the brightness of computer monitors. My light sensitivity has always been made worse by headaches. It could very well have been just a really really really bad headache.

So who knows. All I really know for sure is that I don't want any more headaches like that. I also know that if I had Menstrual Migraines every month I would probably kill every male on the face of the earth before removing my uterus with a rusty spoon.

Ow.

OMG A MEME )

Is tomorrow really Monday? I don't want to go to work tomorrow. I want more weekend, plzkthx. I have more Phantom Hourglass and Chibi-Robo to play!

I think I'm doing pretty good at fighting off this cough thing. Mucinex + LOTS of water is really helping. I can breath normally most of the time (I still feel a little suffocated sometimes) and I'm coughing a lot less. I'll spare you the details of what happens when I do cough, because gross, but it's good news.

The Cough settled into my lungs overnight, while I was sleeping and couldn't kick it back out. Cheater.

It's not the Death Rattle Cough Of Doom yet, but it is The Cough, and it sounds pretty gross. Thanks, allergies!

My plan now is to rearrange things in my budget so I can hit up the pharmacy for mucinex, and down that with a couple gallons of water. The idea is that if I can get this crap out of my lungs faster, it won't have time to settle in and start the Death Rattle Cough Of Doom.

(I know, that's totally gross, isn't it?)

You know, I don't understand the point of mucus. All it does is collect in inconvenient places and make life hard. Like the appendix. It just sits there doing nothing until one day it explodes and you need surgery. You don't actually need it, you can live without it, so why do we have it in the first place? And tonsils, they just sit there and get infected and gross every once in a while. Those get removed sometimes, too, and don't need replacing. Why do we have mucus and appendixes and tonsils, if all they do is cause problems? I mean, yeah, supposedly mucus catches the crap in the air before it gets to your lungs, but so often the mucus just goes into your lungs on it's own, and makes life full of coughing and Not Breathing.

Anyways, it's time for a shower, and then to the grocery store! Why is Mucinex $10? I only have $3! Jerks.

I'm getting tired of clearing my throat.

So! My throat feels better? But now it's in my lungs. Or in the process of settling in there, anyways. I can feel it, if I take a deep breath. Also I'm coughing a lot, which makes my throat hurt when I do. But I'm not reliant on tea to feel human anymore! But my voice still sounds weird. Plusses and minuses.

I pretty much R.E.F.U.S.E. to get the Death Rattle Cough Of Doom. REFUSE. It will not happen. Every time I cough, I tell my lungs NO. I hate the Death Rattle Cough Of Doom. It hurts, the fits make it hard to breath, it makes it really hard to sleep, and it makes everyone around go "OMG R U DYING???" And you know? I don't like the Death Rattle Cough of Doom. I don't want it. It can just go take a flying leap off the nearest cliff. I will have nothing to do with it.

PERIOD.

Ain't. Gonna. Happen.

The doc gave me meds. Yay meds!

Nothing is infected yet or anything, just all icky from drainage (YAY ALLERGIES) so I got some nose spray and Magic Mouthwash. It's equal parts Lidocaine, Maalox, and Benadryl. The lidocaine I understand... it numbs my mouth and throat. The benadryl helps with allergies if I swallow it, that makes sense, too. But Maalox? I do not have the heartburn. But whateva, it makes my throat all numb and happy. I also got some OTC generic claritin.

(I do not swallow the stuff, though. Benadryl knocks me the heck out. As in, I took some early one afternoon and was still feeling woozy the next day. I do not like Benadryl.)

I ended up leaving work early and crashing till about 7. Apparently just gargling liquid benadryl is enough to make me woozy. It was fun. I'm about to gargle some more and maybe go to bed again. I'm tired enough, from the all not-sleeping I did last night.

I do not like that this is making my ear hurt, too. That makes me nervous. I do not want more ear infection fun! NO THANK YOU.

For dinner I had plain noodles with a little butter and salt and pepper, and my throat was happy. Then I baked some chicken from my freezer, and my throat was really happy. Mmm. Warm food on a sore throat is awesome.

Mmmmm. Bed sounds amazing. I think I will go there.

edit: For the record, while the Magic Mouthwash smells exactly like cherry Twizzlers, it does not taste like twizzlers at all. It instead tastes like gross.
