My head hurts. I've had this headache all day. It's the kind of headache that is not a migraine because it's not technically incapacitating you, but it's both stabby and dull throbby so it may as well be because I'm useless. Neither Excedrin or Ibuprofen did anything. Boo hiss.

I think it's an exhaustion headache. I've come in early every day this week, and stayed late twice. I'm pretty pooped. I'm going to steal Firefly from Megan tonight (dad still has mine, and hasn't watched it yet. Jerk. Claims he's "busy", "opening a multi-million dollar facility". Whatever.) and just veg, I think. I'm tired.

Also, gmail is not working here at work. This is lame.

Just an hour and 45 minutes left! I can make it, I think I can, I think I can.

I've said it before, and I'll say it again... one of these days, there is going to be a horrible murder at the pool outside my apartment, and no one will pay attention. Because we are so used to hearing kids screaming at all hours.

I mean, seriously, I can understand shouting, but these girls are shrieking. Simultaneously. Loud, high-pitched shrieks. Is getting tagged "it" really that horrifying that you have to shriek? Or did they just build a roller coaster out there while I wasn't watching?

Part of me wants to go shake my cane at them, but then I remember that I don't have a cane, and also that my back still hurts so really all I want to do is lay down and sleep. I think I'll do that now.


Good night!

So last night was another night of not quite falling asleep. I was super tired and sleepy and couldn't keep my eyes open, but my brain never quite shut off. I tossed and turned pretty much all night. Every so often I'd force my eyes open to look at my clock. I remember seeing 1:30, 2:45, 3-something, 5-something, and 6-something. I think I probably dozed for a little bit in there, but I definitely didn't get any deep REM sleep, which is the important kind. And, actually, I don't think I ever fell all the way asleep when I napped after work, either. I was dozing, and I remember being pretty aware of Tesla moving around on my bed. I know that when Megan called and "woke me up" I wasn't all the way asleep.

This is very frustrating. This morning when I woke got up, I almost cried. I'm feeling kind of like I've not slept at all in three days, which may as well be true if I'm not getting REM sleep.

Also my throat hurts. I don't think I'm sick, I think it's just a little drainage thing making my throat dry, but still. DO NOT WANT.

I'm just kind of zombie-ing my way through work. My head hurts and I'm tired and I don't want to be here and we're probably going to have to stay late because we're probably going to do a buy and I wanna go home :-(

Someone bring me some cheese for all this whine I've got.

SO. Icy Hot? Earns its name! I've got an Icy Hot patch on my shoulder right now and it both burns AND freezes! AMAZING. Go science!

Why do I have an Icy Hot patch on my shoulder? Because the dull, burning pain started making my arm hurt, and I figured that was probably a Bad Thing. I mean, my shoulder has been bothering me for about a week now, maybe longer, but it just keeps getting worse, and I do not like that. The HR lady at work brought me a whole pack of Icy Hot patches, and I just put on my second one.

I think my problem is a combination of really bad posture (I hunch over things a lot, and the easiest way to pop my back is to sit up really straight) and side-sleeping. I've noticed that it's really started bothering me since I've started doing a lot of packing lists at work, and that I have especially bad posture when I work on those. I'm trying to fix that, but dang, it's a hard thing to change, because I never pay attention. I just go to town with my highlighters, yanno? Also I want to get a new pillow that the HR lady told me about, that she uses. Apparently she picked it up on the cheap at Walgreens, so I'm thinking I could swing that after I babysit Saturday. Apparently, it's all contoured for side-sleepers, and it's got a swanky cutout for your shoulder, so you don't hunch up all funny, like I do.

I think maybe I need some sort of brace thingy what would force me to sit up straight and not slouch my shoulders all the time. I mean, it doesn't help that I already have a slight hump at the base of my neck (thanks, dad!), but the rounded shoulders really just make the hunchback look come together. Too bad it's a couple centuries out of date. *le sigh*

I SMELL LIKE AN ACHY OLD MAN RIGHT NOW. It's minty and menthol-ey and totally awesome. Admit it, you're jealous.

I'm so white, I don't even have Circadian rhythm.

Fo realz, yo.

Okay, I'll stop that. I'm very tired! I tossed and turned for two hours last night, right on the edge of sleep but not quite actually falling asleep, and it was very annoying and I couldn't get comfortable and I think my shoulder is going to fall off. Finally at... 1:30? I don't really remember, I took a tylenol PM and it helped me get to sleep but that was way too late to take it, because when I woke up it was still running around my system and when I got out of the shower I sat down to put my socks on and fell asleep. Tesla woke me up at 8:16, a minute after I was supossed to be at work. I said oops, texted someone here that I was on my way, and left.

The drive here was interested! I was just about cross-eyed the whole way here. Yay for not dying! Luckily, since I was late, the roads were a lot less traffickey than they are usually. Everyone was already at work, you see. Except me.

FUN FACT: I don't remember telling my car to play my ipod music! One minute, it was playing the classical station, and then it was starting a song on my ipod. I still don't know how that happened.

ANOTHER FUN FACT: Apparently some of my neighbors are moving out, and they had all their stuff piled in the back of their truck. Their queen-sized mattress was on level with the top of the cab of the truck... and then they piled a wooden bench and a wooden shelf on top of that. As I was pulling out, I think they were starting to figure out that maybe, juuuuuust maybe, the bench and shelf wouldn't stay up there if they started driving. That I saw, they had nothing tying anything down. I'm very glad I left before them.

So I'm still sick, apparently, and this weekend I spent mostly lying down going "UGH UGH UGH STOMACH I HATE YOU PLSDIEKTHX" and the like. It was unfun. I still feel wobbly today and not-wanting-to-eat, and when I move my stomach goes "HAY STOP THAT", but I don't feel pass-out-ey like I did whilst showering Saturday.

It's exciting fun.

In other exciting good news, remember how I said they had already shipped me Gazillionaire Deluxe? Well Saturday I went to do something on my computer and it, uh, won't turn on. I check all the plugs and outlets and everything, and it's something to do with the power inside the computer. Jess' buddy Fraher is hopefully going to come look at it tonight and hopefully he can magically fix it, because it would really suck to finally replace Gazillionaire and not have a computer to play it on. I would cry to hardcore.

MORAL OF THE STORY: The universe hates me.

Why is food still hard to eat?

I mean, I feel fiiiiiiine, really. Until I eat. I can only eat a very little, then I feel like I've eaten five meals and I'm way overstuffed. Ugh.

Plus I am very very burpy. It's terribly attractive, I'm sure.

On the plus side, apparently the bank people missed me, the girl who had to go in my place for two days complained to me that they didn't even tell her "hi", they just asked where I was. This is why I like the bank people so much, they are so nice and friendly.

But man, I want to be able to eat food. My body wants it, I feel like I need to eat, but my stomach is having none of it. Stupid stomach.

Hi LJ! I feel better. Being sick is unfun! But I'm better now! )

Ponies, thanks to everyone who sent me text messages. I usually do not want attention when I am sick, and prefer to curl up in a lonely corner until I am better, but this time I was in full-on attention whore mode, and I really appreciated the text messages. Extra thanks to Nathan for telling people I wanted attention, since I didn't realize how close to tears I was until I got home and it was quiet and empty and internetless.

In other news, I finally explained to my mom today that I have no monies for the next month or two, and that I may be a little while paying her back for cell phone stuff. I was genuinely surprised (and releived) when she didn't gloat about it. I mean, my mom never, ever makes it easy to tell her about problems. Well, she didn't really make this easy, either, but at least she restrained herself to an "I told you so"/"I knew this would happen" sort of attitude instead of going into full-on gloating lecture mode.

So I am at my parents' house now, for the internet. Everyone is gone, and I've raided the fridge for my third tiny meal of the day (potatoes + sausage + eggs, I think, leftovers from something) and I am feeling finer than a frog's hair. My mom gave me a jar of sundried tomatoes in oil, and since I just found a recipe on my computer (hi I hoard recipes sometimes) for Sundried Tomato Alfredo Sauce, I think I forsee cooking in my future sometimes this week. I just need to get the rest of the stuff the recipe calls for. Mmmmm, sundried tomatoes.

I think that's really all I have to say, besides some stuff that's going into a separate entry in a minute because it's about girly stuff. See how considerate I am? I will even put it behind a cut, because I care.

Well, that didn't last long. Today my hair is back to it's usual frustrating self. It's being fizzy and tickling my neck (because of course I forgot my magical bun thing), and there is one bit right above my left ear that will not stay against my head, stubbornly sticking straight out and occasionally tickling my ear. I hate being overly ticklish.

Ponies, my back hurts. It feels like I pulled muscles on either side of my lower back.

Ponies ponies, my head is made of pain. Bright lights hurt. I am not looking forward to driving (out in the bright sun WHERE IS THAT RAIN WE ARE SUPOSSEDLY GETTING) to the bank, if the mail ever gets here.

Ponies ponies ponies, I feel weak and dizzy like I've not eaten in a few days, even though I totally have (Chris' mom's meatloaf was delicious). I feel hungry too, but I couldn't eat lunch because BLAH.

Basically, I'm Whiney McWhinepants today. HI!

On the plus side, Chris, my totally awesome and wonderful boyfriend whome I love, surprised me by buying Chibi-Robo for me last night. Guys, this game is so freaking adorable. Games should not be allowed to be this cute. It is going to eat my brain.

Ok, back to work. YAY.

PS: AUGH this mood icon is so cute. Oh, Hot Bartender, you look so pathetic.

When I first downloaded the Boards of Canada song called "Magic Window", I was disappointed that it was a long, silent mp3. But I get it now, it is a good thing. I've got it on my playlist right now, and when it pops up I get a minute and 46 seconds of silence. It's kind of nice. I'm *almost* sad when it goes away.

In other news, I am so sick of writing for this class. It's all I've done all day, beside procrastinating online. Augh. I'm almost caught up, though. THank God I'm dropping the govt course, otherwise I'd really be up that special creek, lacking a paddle.
