I've had a skull-crushing headache almost all week. It moves all around the front of my face, but it's most persistent and most severe around and above my left eye.
It's gotten so bad and so miserable, I called my doctor yesterday because I was worried about something Very Bad happening in my sinuses. Maybe I tried to do too much too soon, or maybe I have a small dwarf or elf living in there, I thought.
He thinks I may have pushed it too hard, so I'm back to minimal activity for the next five days. This timing is great, because we're supposed to have nice weather all weekend, and I have a stack of comic books that I can take with me to the patio.
Reading the Absolute Dark Knight reactivated my Batmania, so I picked up Matt Wagner's Batman and the Monsters and Batman and the Mad Monk. I also picked up the second TPB of Y: The Last Man, and the 4th TPB of Fables (I thought I'd read more of both of those, but apparently my brain was in my other pants at the time.) I've also got Doktor Sleepless, Black Summer, and Desolation Jones, because you can never have too much Internet Jesus while you're taking antibiotics with side effects that (rarely but severely) include confusion, hallucinations, and nightmares.
For the moment, though, the sun is shining, the birds are singing, U2 is in heavy rotation on Airtunes*, and there's an empty seat on the other side of the wall with my name on it.
Enjoy the weekend, wherever you are. If you're in the US, don't forget that our idiot government decided to make Daylight Savings time start a month early --
tonight Saturday night / Sunday morning. Spring forward for great justice!
*Unforgettable Fire, Joshua Tree, and B-sides from the 80s FTW.
