Today was a slow day. I stayed home because I felt lousy, and sure enough when I finally got out of bed around 10:30 this morning I had a good start on a migraine going. I borrowed some of Kestral's pain killers for my own nefarious uses and then puttered around the apartment after taking a shower. Kes was also home today, although if she had the day off or not is something I'm uncertain of. We both took a pause from our individual time-killing procedures to grab a quick spot of lunch, then back we went to idly killing time. Around 2 PM I decided to go lounge out in the living room. Since I've never been sober any time I watched "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone" I decided that it would be an ideal time to drop the movie in. So I popped it in the DVD player and watched it all the way through, stone-sober. It's a pretty good film, by and large. I have a few nits with it here and there, but when I consider the overall age demographic it was aimed at (yes, adults can enjoy it too, but it was aimed most directly for the kids/young teens) I can't complain about it too vehemently. It also helped me kill a fair bit of time.
Tonight was dinner at the local family-owned Greek joint, then a quick jaunt over to Sam's Club for some groceries and other necessities. I'm not really looking forwards to work tomorrow, but I do need to get in there to get some work down. I have to finish writing my paper for the OpenView project so I can move on to other things. What's worrisome is we're only in February and I've already burned two of my five sick days for the year -- both for the same reason so far: migraines. I wonder what the rest of the year holds for me in this respect. If I'm back where I was in 2000 with headaches cropping up all the time because of the bogus crap I have to go through at the office I'm going to be in bad shape four months from now.
Additionally: I have been drinking a ton of caffeine lately. I find myself wondering if this is why I've been feeling so out of kilter lately.
