Sometime last night I got a headache, and by this morning, it was clear it was a migraine.After hiding in bed as long as I could, I took a bunch (not too many) tylenols and ibuprofens, and now I can sit in the darkened office, listening to gentle music, and playing Guild Wars 2. Sorta. The pain has subsided some, but the aura and dumb-brain thing is still here. I’m calling today a wash. Sorry to the folks who’d expected to see me out and about today.http://click-to-read-mo.re/p/8iwk/53110d58

Sometime last night I got a headache, and by this morning, it was clear it was a migraine.

The pain has subsided some, but the aura and dumb-brain thing is still here. 

I’m calling today a wash. Sorry to the folks who’d expected to see me out and about today.

"People are watching you, science. They’re not just keeping track of who’s doing the dehumanizing shit, but also who (and it’s a lot of you) is sitting on their hands while it goes down.

Interesting…"Just by eyeballing it, you can confirm that there is not a strong correlation between weight and premature death, at least in this population. When the scientists ran statistical analyses, the math showed that there is a statistically significant relationship between being ‘overweight’ and a lower risk of death.""It’s worth saying again: if we are measuring by the risk of premature death, then 79% of the people we currently shame for being overweight or obese would be recategorized as perfectly fine. Ideal, even. Pleased to be plump, let’s say, knowing that a body that is a happy balance of soft and strong is the kind of body that will carry them through a lifetime."http://thesocietypages.org/socimages/2014/07/16/overweight-americans-have-the-lowest-risk-of-premature-death/http://click-to-read-mo.re/p/8eNA/53110d58

"When a bike blows a stop sign, though, we’re more likely to see it as evidence that “cyclists think they’re above the law.” The social psychology term for this bias is “fundamental attribution error”: the tendency to attribute the actions of others to their inherent nature rather than their situation, and the less we sympathize with their situation, the greater the bias. A 2002 study from the UK’s Transport Research Laboratory found that it plays a starring role in our perceptions of traffic behavior, with drivers far more likely to see a cyclist’s infraction as stemming from ineptitude or recklessness than an identical one committed by another driver. It may also help explain why I’ve been approached more than once while holding my bike by random strangers, asking me to explain the behavior of another cyclist they once saw doing something stupid. I ride a bike, therefore I’m one of them.”https://medium.com/@CarlAlviani/why-bikes-make-smart-people-say-dumb-things-9316abbd5735http://click-to-read-mo.re/p/8dCp/53110d58

"Wendell Berry wrote, ‘I eat my history day by day. Bird, butterfly, and flower pass through the seasons of my flesh.’ This is true for all of us. When you eat with love, what’s grown with love, prepared with love and served with love, you feel more nourished, revitalized, satisfied, balanced and loved. Meals are an awesome time for gratitude, to remember the goodness of the earth and all our many connections. We consume earth’s food to give us strength to serve the earth and everything in it."We are so very fortunate to receive produce grown by dear farmer-friends for many of our meals. But it is also important to acknowledge the work done by the countless others who’ve given us the rest of our food, as well as to be mindful of all the effort that goes into what is on our plates, and mindful of those who do not have as much.http://www.soulseeds.com/grapevine/2014/07/the-love-of-food-and-gratitude/http://click-to-read-mo.re/p/8dAW/53110d58

I don’t understand how CVS pharmacy works. I have a standing re-fill for my thyroid medicine, and yet several times lately it hasn’t been ready for me when I show up to pick it up, (or, in this case, when +Eric Penn does). Each bottle has the same number of pills in it, so they have to know when I’ll be coming back in for it.It’s very frustrating.http://click-to-read-mo.re/p/8cLr/53110d58
