Wooing Ephemily, the Missing Manual

As recently as February, I've been called both a Rubik's Cube and a Tesla Coil.  So, it has gotten me thinking that I'm potentially a whole lot of fun, if not slightly dangerous and confusing.  That led me to the idea that maybe I need some instructions Ikea would approve of.  After chewing on the idea for a bit, researching trends, and preparing a pile of charts and graphs, I chucked it all and decided to shoot from the funny bone.

How to Cure a Migraine in 15 Easy Steps

I guess looking back, in the long run, it's a good thing I was iced in for a second day in a row Wednesday.  The reason for that being that I ended up with a headache that slowly inched towards migraine all day.

It started small enough with a little fatigue and tightness behind the eyes.  I got out of bed, scratched my ass, and sat down to do what work I could from home, which included some emails.  I made a pit stop in the kitchen for a diet soda, hoping the caffeine would help me kick the pain before it got bad.  Along the way, I chased the soda with some chocolate.  Hey, in some of my more obscure headache research over the years, it's been suggested as both a trigger AND a source of relief.  I didn't need to worry about it setting anything off since I already had it, so it's worth a try.  Who am I to argue with science?
