Happy birthday to jadasc and redfishie!

Medical
The barometric pressure yesterday fucked with me hard. To the point where big chunks of the day were spent concentrating on breathing through the pain. It is not fair to have 14 hours of activity at a pain level of ~7. Also exhausted all day, unsurprisingly.

I feel less ouchy today, but still ouchy. And very tired. Will be napping when I get home from work.

Info Session
Ran like clockwork! It was my very first, and I don't think anyone could tell. We have another on Monday, so if you've been wanting to come volunteer with us, you still have a few days to get your application in.

Link Soup
* You can get Portal for free. Related: I now have Portal, and may actually get to play it if I ever have time. This may be an airplane thing.
* mikemarano to me, yesterday, having bumped into me outside the coffeeshop: "You look like a YouTube video of a kitten falling asleep." Pause. "There's a website for that, you know."

Daily Science
A supermassive black hole may have been observed in the process of being hurled from its parent galaxy at high speed.

Plans
Work, nap, and a much-needed night in with the family.

Ah! Someone else affected by barometric pressure! I do not mean to celebrate your discomfort but I had though that it was just me - so many people say I must be crazy to think that that is what affects me (amongst other things). Is it a particular pressure (high or low or nnnnn bar) or, as in my case, the change in pressure/weather?

It affects me too - its a migraine trigger more than anything else though.

I get migraines too (visual, vestibular and with or without attendant pain) and many of my migraine symptoms also happen within the Multiple Sclerosis symptom-set i.e. there is an overlap and the docs cannot pin down which symptom is due to which condition. maybe my migraines are actually part of the MS. Nobody knows or really cares, to be honest. The symptoms suck whatever their cause! ;-p

It is good (?) to know, though, that 'song and I are not the only ones.

I don't get migraines but I too seem to be very susceptible to sudden pressure shifts. And with not unheard of experience of having THREE fronts come through Austin in a single day, some days opening my eyes is torture. I can't even imagine what its like for anyone that has more chronic problems.

Migraine trigger. Changes only. It's not just you.

*laugh* Kinda makes you wonder what it did to get kicked out like that.
