I fought the law (of nature)

And the law won.

When I went to bed last night, the humidifier by my bed was low on water, but I thought I could make it through the night.  However,  I woke up around 6:00 and it was empty.  I could feel my sinuses filling up, but went back to sleep.  When I finally woke up at 10:00 (very late for me!), my head was pounding.  Lesson:  when in doubt, fill up the humidifier.

The swollen sinuses caused me to have a weird dream about Sue.  I’m sure it was triggered by the pilot episode of The Legend of the Seeker I watched last night.  I dreamed I was back in Iowa, and I was passing through Sue’s town on a tour.  Except that Sue was living in the southern part of the state and I couldn’t remember her last name.  We’d planned to meet, but through those crazy obstacles dreams put in your way, I never made it.  She did, however, hook up with some of the other people I was touring with (which happened to be my old high school classmates).  That part of the dream was also triggered by a tale from my past I’ll write about sometime.

The headache has passed, but I’ve spent most of the day on the computer, trying to get a handle on CSS and WordPress.  I’ve yet to successfully install WordPress on my computer.  The good thing is I understand the problem this time, and as far as I can tell, it’s not me.  The bad thing is, I have no idea how to fix it.

My weekly step up on the scale was quite successful this morning.  But despite my bragging yesterday, I’ve decided to order a pizza tonight.  There’s a place I really like called “Mangia, Mangia” (“eat, eat!” for those who don’t know Italian).  In the past I’ve had their Greek pizza and 4 season pizza (my favorite).  Tonight I’m trying the pizza melanzana.  Before I lived in Italy, I never ate eggplant.  Now I quite enjoy it.  (The other thing I never really cared for before Italy was olives.  Now?  Yum!)

Oh, pizza just arrived.  Ciao!

  1. Hee! Well, you know we all talked about you when you weren’t there. 😉 I certainly hope the weather in your dream was better than what it actually is here. I don’t think the temp got into the positive numbers at all today. And tomorrow we get more snow added to the equation!
