Yesterday was fine, I suppose. The entire UT area was crampacked with people; lots of stuff going on. There was the UT game (which I guess they won :shrugs:). Mojo’s had a shindig in the back lot of the shop featuring ramps, bikes, and live bands. Parking was an absolute bitch — days like this are tow truck drivers’ wet dreams. I was lucky enough to get to Mojo’s early enough to find a parking spot before they set up the stage and the bike area.
I found some friends and joined them; we were kind of spitting about the early crowd, and opted to go get breakfast. By the time we came back, my car was firmly blocked-in, and I had little choice but to stay at Mojo’s. It’s not a bad thing, I just couldn’t leave with my car if I wanted, so I stayed and wrote code.
I don’t know if it was the breakfast I had (grilled chicken barbecue burritos), or if it was the crowds, or the “music”, or the weather, or whatever, but after a few hours I got antsy, tired, and poor of constitution. My stomach started bothering me. After a poorly-chosen beer, I started getting a dehydration headache which lasted until the end of the day. I went home, chatted online, and went to bed.
This morning I woke up rested, but no sooner did I move my head to get up the headache reminded me that it was still there. Christ. So I got up, tooled around, took some tylenol, made some gatorade and took a shower. I’ve had nothing but decaffeinated water-based drinks all day, and even after eating something I still have the headache. Think maybe it’s a dehydration/decaffeination headache? Or maybe allergies? Or maybe too much nicotine? I really don’t know.
Until it goes away, I guess I’ll just keep relying on tylenol, hibiscus tea, sunglasses, breezy rooms, and ginger altoids.
With all that being said, I’m starting to feel restless and bored. Getting to a point where the stuff I have available for me to do I just don’t want to do. Y’know? The French call it “Ennui”. God, me saying that sounds so cheesy. Feh. But that’s how I feel. I want to get out to different places more, but it takes energy and wherewithall to do that. And given my current ill feeling, that just ain’t going to happen.
