Woke last Monday with a Sinus Headache. After awhile the whole left side of my head hurt. Slowly it spread, until, WEDNESDAY afternoon if finally went away. Holy Shit! Havenâ€™t had a headache last that long in a long time. Iâ€™d have posted, but I couldnâ€™t force a coherent thought if my life had depended on it. Monday was a really nice, get naked and stay outside, day and I couldnâ€™t even enjoy it. Even the sunshine was too heavy on my head.
Wednesday it was somewhat better and I needed to get out of the house for awhile; so I went bowling. Finally. Bowled 3 games in just over half an hour (and broke 120 in each!). Even threw 2 strikes in a row; then almost guttered the ball. It was fun! Only cost $11 counting the shoe rental. Lady said if I joined the Friday League I could have 3 free games a day practice. Hmmmâ€¦ Still, not bad for my first time bowling in 15 years or so. (Maybe longer than that. I just canâ€™t remember.)
Finally stopped and had a Whopper on the way back from bowling. Iâ€™d been â€œjonesingâ€ for one for a couple of weeks. Sure was good! I donâ€™t really get â€œcravingsâ€ often, but I did for a Whopper and could not tell you why. Maybe I was just wanting that taste of â€œsacrificialâ€ beef smothered in lettuce, tomato, and onions.
Woke up today feeling really â€œnormal;â€ no headache but my leg muscles are letting me know that I did something unusual yesterday. Tough! Get used to it on Mondayâ€™s, Wednesdayâ€™s, and Fridayâ€™s.
So I got all my usual chores done and even burned the trash (just doing my bit for global warming). Listening to the Noon-Time Net on 7.268.5 in the background. Watching it rain outside.
Still playing with Linux Mint and am unable to get to a session without x-server running so I can install the NVidia video driver. So, Iâ€™m still learning and thatâ€™s good. Bad though cause I want to start using Linux but donâ€™t want to be stuck to one monitor. Iâ€™ll get it though, and itâ€™ll be one of those â€œDohâ€ moments.
WA DOT has an opening for a Technician Trainer (and IT) that, if I thought I stood a chance in Hell of getting, Iâ€™d apply for. I really enjoy teaching and have a butt-ton of experience what with 20 years of giving First Aid/Health talks in the Navy. I do not mind getting up in front of a group of people to give a talk if I know what Iâ€™m talking about. Largest group I ever had numbered about 400 (in a base theater) and lots of one-on-one. Ah well. Sucks getting old.
Not much else going on around here and itâ€™s almost bedtime for this old dude. SWMBO is home safe and sound and off in her room.
