Comfortable With Conformity

February 5, 2001

I've been such a lazy, headachey girl lately, but it's Monday, and Mondays are the beginnings of new weeks, so hopefully it's all over.

It started when V was here, wearing Escada perfume, causing my head to almost explode. That was last week, at Sawgrass Mills. I didn't want to hurt her feelings, so I endured a raging migraine throughout dinner at The Cheesecake Factory and during the movie, Chocolat. (Which was, by the way, a great movie.)

A few days later, the rebound effect of taking Excedrin for the aforementioned migraine returned, and it was insanely bad. It was on my anniversay with S, while we were tromping through the (horrible) Canadian Festival on the beach, and my head started to throb with pressure. I knew Excedrin was imminent. No other aspirin has any effect on me. I ended up popping four pills that day, finally feeling better at night, and waking up yesterday morning exhausted. Besides jitters from caffeine, the after-effect of Excedrin is total exhaustion and crankiness-- which can be alleviated with more Excedrin! You get the cycle? But I sweat out tiredness and headacheyness last night with no drugs, and I'm feeling slightly tired right now, at 1 pm on a Monday.

Don't even ask me about my non-existent job. I spent a few days wallowing in depression about that already, and I'm better now, but I'm still angry. When job-hunting and interviews are fruitless labor, that can be a real kick to the ego.

I've got a case of the Mondays...
