telophase: (manji - not happy)
I have a day off work due to an ice storm and I can't even enjoy it because I have a migraine. (I assume due to the change in air pressure overnight.)

On the bright side, my meds have kicked the pain down to mere pressure, instead of pain, so I can at least look at a computer monitor without causing intense pain, on the other hand I am now stoned* and about to fall asleep again.

My current goal in life is to stay upright and dick around on the intartubes until I can't keep my eyes open any longer, then go sleep. I believe this is an achievable goal.

* My current cocktail is a mix of half a promethazine, and hydrocodone. Doesn't always work, especially if I wait too long to take it, but for now it is.

Presentation went well, I think. The attendees were of the "Help, my patrons are asking for this stuff and I don't know what it is!" type, so they were eager to learn. I mentioned - without naming names - the cataloger who wrote an article a year or so back who, when she described the elements of manga, got them all exactly wrong - and after the presentation a cataloger came up to me and asked if I'd be willing to co-write an article on cataloging manga. I said yes, of course because my resume needs padding.

I realized, too late because my brain was dead, that I didn't make it clear that the reason I needed spectacular photos of costume either *photographed* by you or *of* you was because I was thinking about putting the powerpoint presentation up on the web afterwards, and in that case I couldn't grab random photos off Deviantart or cosplay.com because the photographer and/or cosplayer might run across them and get legitimately angry that I hadn't asked permission, and I didn't have time to do so. But the powerpoint presentation ended up imparting no extra information to the talk, and meaning nothing without the talk, so it's not going up.

And then the traffic jam from hell afterwards. And then a friend of mine came and picked me up from home - no way was I getting behind the wheel of a car again - and we went to dinner and talked about travel, me going on about Japan and her going on about the trip to Peru she and her husband are going on in November.

And this morning the migraine from hell - the kind where I get nauseated, and the sip of Coke Zero I took to wash down the meds was violently rejected by my body (although, strangely and luckily, no the pill), and I went back to sleep until, basically, 1PM. Still suffering migraine hangover.

Have poked through the [livejournal.com profile] yuletide pages and made notes for offering/requesting, but am not going to make those choices while under migraine hangover, so will delay that until later.
