This didn’t really belong in that last post, especially after I added other stuff. So aren’t you lucky? You get another one!
A while back, I noticed that an old post in which I had published my Opinity ID badge in order to claim this blog had broken links. I checked their site, and found a notice saying that they’d be back up in two days.
Whatever it is, it sucks. No matter how long Katie and I sleep, we stay exhausted.
We did watch more Dexter while we were awake. And I studied for my Project Management final. I’m actually using the study guide, like a good girl! Hey, my brain is so stupid right now that I need all the help I can get. Maybe I should have read some of the text, huh?
Oh! I finished Shirley Damsgaard’s Ophelia & Abby series. Very good stuff! They’re cozy mysteries, but there’s also an interesting portrayal of people following a “family tradition” of folk magic.1
On to Stranger in Death!
1 I have to say that the references to “witches” have caused some interesting changes in the ads Google is sticking on this site. Love spells? Please!
This not-flu or whatever is exceedingly tiresome. I should think it would be enough to live with the day to day stuff, let alone put up with this. Then again, nobody has ever claimed in my hearing that the world is fair.
I have no idea why the main article was linked from ZDNet, but doesn’t this cheddar and apple sandwich seem yummy? I wonder how it would be with ham? I used to have a really good recipe for a sausage and apples dish, but I know I haven’t cooked it in the last decade. Maybe I could dig it out of my ancient recipe box? There are few ways to go wrong with cooked apples, as far as I can tell.

I have a Google Alerts search going for “fibromyalgia,” because if there’s something out there that will make this crap better, I want to know it yesterday. The alert brings in all sorts of nonsense from quack remedies to naysayers, in addition to the actual content.
Today’s alert takes the cake, though. Somebody wrote to Dan Savage’s Savage Love column asking, “Can I Sue Somebody for Fisting-Induced Fibromyalgia?“1
Savage’s medical expert is out of touch regarding the latest FMS research, but I have to agree with his reply to the letter-writer.
Sam and I tried to game a little tonight, but he was sleepy and I’m fading, too. I did some writing today, and more webifying, and worked on a couple of school assignments. Then I got all-too-obsessed with trying to figure out how to make the output of a couple of WordPress plugins work nicely with my template.
I hope y’all had a lovely weekend!
