Cleaning house

could you please keep it down a little?

Day two of the migraine and I think I've finally figured out WHY. The stupid temperatures have been changing so wildly over the last week that the air pressure changes have caused my head to expand.

Today, it's 11*C. Yesterday it was 10*. It's likely to be 11* tomorrow and Monday as well. It's JANUARY! It's not supposed to be this warm!

Not to say that I would be complaining about it if I didn't have this stupid headache. :)

I went to the grocery a couple of hours ago, thinking that the fresh air might help. Since when is "Uh-huh" the correct response to 'Thank-You'? Stupid teenagers without mothers.

First, I asked the cashier which register was open as I was the only customer at Shopper's at the time. She was standing directly between two registers, neither of which had a light on, or a sign up. She looked up at me as though I had 3 heads and waved vaguely to the other side of the room..."Over THERE". "pardon me," I thought to myself..."Silly me, thinking it might be somewhere near where you're STANDING". However, I just went over to the empty cash station and waited. I waited some more. Then, when I was just about through waiting, she sauntered over and said, "Card." She did not say "Card?"...but rather "Card." An imperative, not an interrogative. I said as politely as I could, "Oh, not with me. Thanks for asking though."

After paying for my milk and sunflower seeds (my addiction!), I took back my card and said "Thank you," with the usual smile in my voice. In return, I got "Uh-huh". It made me feel particularly well-disposed to the teenagers of the world.

Perhaps I'm just cranky because my head hurts and I feel it might make things better if I could just kill someone for a valid reason like poor manners. I just smiled and said, "Have a good night" as I walked away.

Bleh. I'm just cranky.

I hope I feel better tomorrow, I'm really tired of this. Also, I REALLY want to paint my headboard, and I need to use oil paint, so I really need to not have an headache before I start. Anyway--the screen is hurting my eyes so I'm off to bed to try and get some sleep. Hopefully this migraine will be gone tomorrow and I can get back to a normal life.
