The Perfect Storm

Recipe for a migraine:

Start with days of stressful decision-making
Add a healthy dose of nights spent tossing and turning
Quickly fold in hours spent searching through reels and reels of microfilm, followed by hours toggling between windows on the computer
Mix in rapidly changing barometric pressure as storms roll in and out

This should be enough to create a good migraine, but if it isn't strong enough include the following:

One courier who smokes so much the smell permeates the office in a matter of minutes
A part-time employee from the local high school who bathes in that kind of cologne to which adolescent males are drawn.
A friend in crisis

In other, happier, news I turned in my application for the museum/art center job. I'll let you know what, if anything, happens. Also, tomorrow is TVboyfriend day. Huzzah!

Luckily, for some, chocolate is a great migraine cure. (Though, for a sad few, it's a contributor.) Congrats on going for the museum job, and good luck.

You need a case of Dr. Pepper. That's what always makes things better for me. Glad to hear that you apply for that job.

I'm so glad you applied. They'd be fools not to want you.
p.s. excedrin migrain -- beautiful stuff.

Except for the fact I'm allergic to acetemiphin (or however you spell whatever is in Tylenol and Excedrin) and have to steer clear of anything that has it in. But I get the same effect by swallowing two ibprofin with 8 (or 16 or even 24 somedays) of Coke.
