    Excessive heat warning and stupid work bullshit shooting my normally low blood pressure through the roof combined together with forgetting to take my magnesium for a couple days and now I have a migraine for the whole %&$@ weekend that won't go away for more than a couple of hours even with Imitrex. It is now very likely a 3-dayer, which means it won't be gone until the end of work on Monday. Yea for me.
    Here... let me stand next to you holding this awesome mist fan (for the heat), and commiserate with you over the migraine... I woke up to intracranial hell.
    *hugs*
    Hope it resolves soon.

      Thanks, cori. I think the round I had this morning finally took a couple of hours ago, but I'm afraid to move in case I mess it up. Still another 2 weeks until I see the neurologist about the concussions. Holy crap, that must be a great gig.
      Durp.

      • GOTD: These infernal robo-calls regarding the upcoming election on Tuesday. If you are going to annoy me trying to convince me to vote a particular way on something or someone, at least have the decency to have a real live person on the phone, not a recording. I will be so glad when Tuesday is over.

        • The sun's just coming up. The roads are wet from an overnight rain. We're driving eastbound. Sun glare 3x as bad because of the wet roadway. There's a traffic light you can't see until you reach the crest of the hill and it just so happens it was red. WTF are you tailgaiting me???????

              Tailgating in general is my biggest driving pet peeve. Not only is it unsafe, it just makes no sense. The person tailgating is cutting down their own maneuverability and putting their safety in the hands of the person in front of them.

              The thing that astonishes me is that the people I know who do this tend to be of the sort that think all the other drivers on the road are idiots and that their own driving skills are nigh on professional. I don't care how good a driver you think you are. If you are riding on the ass of some 'idiot' and they hit the brakes unexpectedly, you are going to crash. If you think they're all dumbasses, why are you relying on them to keep you safe? Back off and give yourself the room to pass them if you don't like how they're driving.

              Of course, I think it's more about their need to express their disapproval by crawling up the other driver's butt than it is about a reasoned philosophy on how to drive.

              • Why does my underwear always turn inside-out after going through the washing machine? What's up with that?

                  yeah you are

                  Baby if you time travel back far enough you can avoid that work because the dust won't be there. You're too pretty to be working that hard.

                    Personally, I think it is because the person in front of me is driving way too freaking slowly. Then again, perhaps it is just this town where apparently "Speed Limit 35" means "No faster than 20" Not that I tailgate much to be honest, but it is frustrating when I can ride a bike faster than most idiots in this town can drive.

                      I get frustrated with folks like that, too. I just don't tailgate them. I pass them when it's safe and grumble when it's not.

                      • that's what you get for living where all the retirees go! i bet it gets worse in the winter months. meanwhile, here people tailgate me when i'm going 5 mph over the speed limit. then i flip them them the birdee. i don't know how far the crumple zone is from the tailgate of a mini van, and i have precious cargo in rear seat.

                          If by grumble you mean say a few choice words rhyming with "Mearn to Prive Mu Ducking Toron," then we have the same reaction.

                          Did you know that even when it is "Snowbird Season" it is illegal to shoot them? Seems unfair.

                          • I'm on both sides of the "driving too slow" thing. I have GPS on my work truck, and my boss gets an automatically generated email every time I drive 5 mph over the speed limit for more than 15 seconds. Sucks.

                            So I do my best to drive 4.5 mph over on one lane roads and NOT in the fast lane when there is one. I just don't see the point in making myself The Grand Duchess of How Fast Everyone Else Should Be Going.

                            On the other hand, it drives me nuts when people either go below the speed limit when you can't pass or drive slower than those behind them in the fast lane.

                            It's really all about being considerate of those around you and trying to let people make their own decisions about how to drive.

                              Well, it is not helped by the fact that this town has one road and 200,000 persons over the age of 90 (okay, not quite that many). It also is not helped by the fact that they move in herds taking up both lanes. It is further compounded by the problem that there is one major employer, which also houses the main pharmacy, hospital, and grocery store for said retirees. All together it equals a giant geriatric cluster f*ck. Luckily I go to work early enough to avoid most of their driving buffoonery.
