“Teh internets” at home finally got fixed late yesterday afternoon, after being out for two days. Woke up this morning with what feels like one of those “not-deadly-just-entrenched-for-two-or-three-days” migraines coming on. Will see if the meds help, soon as I feel like keeping something down so I can take the meds to make the migraine go away, so I don’t feel so nauseous and unsteady and unable to access so many of the “higher cognitive skills” widgets in my brain. Yeh, viscious circle, is it not?
First line of attack on the migraine is drinking some strong coffee (yay caffeine), and putting on my iTunes to drown out the louder-than-usual tinnitus that tops hearing aid feedback for dB and Hz obnoxiousness. (Okay okay, for you audiophiles I’m listening to “The tortoise and the hare” from Flook’s album Haven; it’s Celtic music. Now anyway), and began catching up on two days’ worth of blog reading.

The blog rating site goes on to explain, “This rating was determined based on the presence of the following words:
pain (9x); dangerous (8x); hell (4x); bastards (3x); death; (2x) dyke (1x)”
My response to this rating, in absolutely deadpan voice: Eek. Words. Oh, eek.
They didn’t even catch the insect fornication going on in this page. Hah!
(I should note that it only took me SIX tries to remember how to put an image coding onto my blogpost, after an equal number of tries I still had not figured out how to remove weird paragraph spacings. It also took me FIVE rounds of proofreading to bludgeon this post into something approaching grammatical orthographitude. Or whatever it’s called — I am having trouble retrieving words this morning. I think I’d better go forage some food before I try to do anything else.)
