The one where June loses her train of thought. I never really have TRAINS of thought. More like ant farms of thought.

Do you know what I’ve never done? Actually, that question encompasses many answers. I’ve never gone a morning without coffee since 9th grade. That’s one thing. Unless I was having surgery or a lab test, and believe you me, it pisses me off when that happens. I remember years ago having one of my fibroid outpatient surgeries (I guess most of that fibroid drama was before your time. Count yourselves lucky) that didn’t start till 1 p.m., and I complained so much that when I came to, they had fresh black coffee waiting for me, and I’ve never been so grateful for a gesture.

I’ve also never skied. No desire to. You will never hear me say, “I can’t blog today because I have to slalom down some hills.” I don’t like to be cold and I don’t like to be dangerous.

Hunting. I’ve never gone hunting. Basically anything outdoors I have not done unless it’s drinking on a patio.

Anything that involves being without caffeine, I have not done. Like, I really want to go to one of those spa resorts, but not one that doesn’t have caffeine. No way. I will bolt outta there. Do you think I might have an addiction?

Also? I cannot remember what my point was going to be, after I listed things I had not done. Ding DANG it. I really can’t. Crap.

It’s October, in case you hadn’t noticed, and for a few weeks now it’s been chilly here. One morning I woke up and went outside and boom, chilly and it’s been so ever since. The weather literally changed overnight. Last year I was thoroughly irritated, which I know is not like me, because all of September and on into October it was 90 degrees each day. It was so hot and horrible. Not this year.

That means this weekend I will have to do some exchanging of the clothes. Move the fall-ish things into the main closet and stick the summer things into one of those suck-the-air-out bags I got after I had an Organize June Day on this very blog. So that’s something to look forward to.

Meanwhile, I have had a migraine every day this week. I think it’s because I am working on something intricate and detailed for work, but I have GOT to get that situation figured out. I either have to figure out how to not get migraines after a long day of intricate work or not do intricate work anymore.

Perhaps I should chuck it all, all these riches, and become a ski instructor.

Honestly, though, I gotta do SOMETHING. I am overdosing on my migraine medication and it isn’t good. I feel like that ballerina in I’m Dancing as Fast as I Can. Remember that book? It was from the ’70s, I think, and it was about some ballet dancer in New York who got hooked on the dolls. Valium? Did she get hooked on Valium? It’s possible I never actually read the book and just saw her on Phil Donahue.

I’m tired of feeling sick all the time, and when I’m not sick, I’m on tenterhooks waiting for it to return. I wonder if I should do something less intense than staring hard at words all day. It might not be good. Maybe I could be president!

“The president is playing miniature golf today. This is her 46th miniature golf outing since her presidency began, and she is determined to get the ball through the windmill.”

I adore miniature golf. Once Marvin and I found this miniature golf place that time forgot, somewhere in, like, Glendale or something, when we lived in LA. It had an old restaurant attached to it, that time also forgot. The whole thing was very 1950s restaurant where Danny and Sandy hung out in Grease. What was that place called? The Tasty-something?

Anyway we adored it and got to go there two or three times before guess what? Closed down. It’s probably a Staples now.

I’d better go. I have to begin work in a few minutes and my goal is to not have a headache at 5:00. Further reports as developments warrant (FRaDW).

Sune

That’s only funny if you read me the other day, when I talked about Seth and Sevin and Sim.

  1. I typically wear progressive lenses (they vote for Bernie), and they work really well, but back last year, when I still had a job (editing), I found that it was way easier to do my job if I wore a pair of glasses that had only the “middle” prescription for the lenses – the computer distance one. You might already do this, but I was dumb and it took me a couple of months to figure out why I felt so lousy and everything seemed so hard at work. So if your middle-range eyesight has been slipping a bit (which unfortunately it does at our age) and you haven’t noticed, that might be at least a partial trigger for the extra migraines.

    If this is as obvious and useless a suggestion as Excedrin Migraine, I will just quietly let myself out here.

  2. Figured out after several years of migraines that water matters. And then it took me a few more years to realize all the times I wasn’t drinking enough. Like when I’m super engrossed in something at work, hours go by and I forget to drink; worse yet is when I’m tired because then I’m drinking more coffee which means I’m drinking less water, making it worse.

    Wanted to share because my headaches have decreased in frequency. It frustrates me to no end that this kind of information wasn’t provided through my PCP the first time I ever complained about migraine. Even if it doesnt help everyone, it would help some.

    I’m sorry you’re struggling with them.

  8. Skier here. Have been since my mid-20s ‘cuz I met my man then and that’s what HE did. Let me tell you that the whole “cozy lodge” thing isn’t, unless you’re a bajillionaire. Mostly it’s elbowing your way to the bar for a beer, stuffing yourself into a picnic table with friends in order to eat an over-priced burger, dealing with piles of discarded equipment like jackets, gloves, goggles, and helmets, all while sweltering in an overheated cafeteria sitch that smells like old hot dogs, soggy wood, and feet. The skiing itself is an ongoing mixture of cold, sweat, terror, thrilling speed, and glorious views. I hope I can keep doing it for many many years!

  10. I just realized that I had my winter clothes at the front of the closet in March and switched them with the summer clothes in anticipation of a normal year. But since then I’ve worn mostly jeans, camisoles, and t-shirts. For infrequent Zoom meetings I’ve pulled out the same three good tops. Except for those, I never wore my summer clothes and now it’s time to switch back. Maybe I won’t since I’ll probably stick with jeans and thrift shop men’s cashmere or wool sweaters that are my substitute for sweat shirts. I may never wear my good winter clothes, and I’m ready for next spring when I might emerge from home. This is just weird.

  12. The only skiing I’ve ever done is cross-country skiing. One time. And it was enough. I’ve never been hunting, either. The thought of shooting at animals is not a pleasant one for me.

    I’ve been around motorcycle racing most of my life. I was involved with a couple of professional racers back in the day and both my husband and son race motorcycles. My son has raced internationally. As for me, I got my thrill-seeking habit out of the way by my late 20s. And there were some serious and dangerous thrills done back then. Now I’m all, “ouch, no.”

    Now that it’s October, our temps here are in the triple digits (what the hell?) so I’ve exchanged my summer shorts and t-shirts for…summer shorts and tank tops. I actually don’t really have seasonal clothing because Southern California does not have seasons. It’s either hot or it’s warm. Cold is anything below 70 degrees.

In spite of that, I actually enjoyed the trip.

Critter sitting can produce a very good income because it is hard to find dependable, in-home care for pets. I’ve never snow skied, but I have water skied, which I loved. Snow is too hard when you fall and I know way too many people that have gotten hurt on the slopes. We used to have waverunners, which I absolutely loved, but I don’t think I could handle the rough ride now, so at my age that wouldn’t be a wise activity. I only fell off once and I wasn’t even moving and getting back on a waverunner is hard, especially when your husband is riding around, around, around causing waves and you are exhausted. I wouldn’t recommend that experience at all, plus I was kind of freaking out thinking about what could be in the water around me. Mini golf is so much fun, I think the last time I played might have been 1968.
