I Know It's Tuesday, But It Feels Like Monday

I intended to post something yesterday, but stuff got in the way; i.e., a nasty migraine. I haven't had one in quite a while, so this one took me by surprise. I got up yesterday morning, albeit a little late, and realized my head was hurting. I wasn't thinking in terms of migraine, though, and brought in the paper and got a cup of coffee. By then, the head pounding was worse, but I was still thinking it was manageable. A few sips into the coffee, my world was suddenly rocked with a wave of nausea and ... I knew. Migraine. Soon, I was back in bed, and remained there 'til 1:00 P.M. I wouldn't have gotten up then, except that I was wracked with guilt because I knew my poor little dog's bladder must have been about to explode. So, I got dressed and took her out, then swallowed 2 Tylenol PMs and laid back down on the couch with a pillow and two blankets. Migraines always seem to make me feel cold, even in the summer. I slept until about 4:30, when I was able to get up without too much of a headache. Want to hear what's strange? For a few weeks now, I've been suffering through a bout of what I believe is Sciatica, and it was pretty bad Sunday night. But after yesterday's migraine, it's -- gone. How amazing is that? As much as I dread and despise migraines, if I have to endure one to get rid of something else, I'll do it. Seems like a fair trade-off to me. Still, I for all intents and purposes lost my entire Monday.

I hope you all had a great Christmas. And you know I want to know what you got in the way of presents. I'd love it if you'd tell me in the Comments section what your very favorite gift was. Mine was a beautiful watch with one of those self-charging batteries that never needs to be changed. I love it!

Just in case you've missed TWISTED LINGUISTICS, I've rounded up a few fun blasfomys for you.

I just stopped by work today and I wanted to wish you a very happy new year! This year has sucked for me personally and I wanted to thank you for sticking with my often forgotten about blog and believing in my writing when I didn't. I hope 2009 treats you with all the respect and honor you deserve. Thank you for everything SJ.

I bought myself a gift this year.
If I could I would buy you an instant remedy forn whatever ails you.
Here's to hoping that 2009 brings you much more happiness than you ever asked it for.

Cheers and auld lang syne!

I once got a Sciatica from sitting on my keister watching the SciFi Channel for too long. What a pain in the hiney.

My favorite XMAS gift so far is a subscription to the Little Nickel Want Ads.

Congratulations, Serena! You have come up with a set of blasfomys that I can't in my most linguistically fevered dreams do anything with. What a way to end the year. Happy New Year, and hope your migraine migrates somewhere else.

Serena said...

Happy New Year, Kan. I'm sorry '08 sucked for you. May '09 be much, much better. And you can bet I'll continue to hang around the Lemming House.:)

You're a sweetheart, NYD, for your willingness to buy me a remedy. I'm demanding a lot out of '09 and it had better deliver. Happy New Year to YOU!:)

I wasn't watching SciFi, Pugsley, but it was certainly a giant pain in the hiney. Lord have mercy, somebody's got to pony up a better present for you. Little Nickel Want Ads? Geez!:)

Woo-hoo, I stumped Bilbo, the Ph.D. of Twisted Linguistics! The migraine has migrated to parts unknown, there to (hopefully) remain for a good long time. Happy New Year, Bilbo.:)

I've had a minor cold all week, but at least tomorrow will feel like Friday.

Serena said...

Hi, there, Yellojkt. Sorry about your cold, hope you feel better soon. Aren't mid-week holidays which cause premature Fridays great? Happy New Year to you.

A nice shoulder massage to ease the strains and pains of a migraine, and best wishes to feel better for the New Year ;)

Mona said...

Headaches are just that! ..Headaches.

I hope it is all gone by now!

Happy New Year to you Serena!

Sherry, I would like to personally thank you for making 2008 bearable.

Happy New Year....G

Serena said...

Thank you, Skunky. Wishing you a very Happy New Year!:)

Thanks, Mona. The headache's history. Happy New Year to you!:)

Ditto, Galen. Happy New Year, and don't forget to take some pix with your new camera.:)
