State of the telophase

1) Day 10 of low-grade headache. Although I think right now it may be due more to caffeine lack than anything else - I broke down and took the promethazine/hydrocodone combo before I realized I hadn't had any caffeine since 6:45 AM. Whereupon I promtly made a cup of tea. The headache is receding now--not fully gone, but enough in the background that I can ignore it--but naturally I have no idea which remedy is responsible for it.

2) I also did something I'd been curious about and begged a few computer risers from my coworker who mans the equipment closet, and raised my monitor and keyboard up high enough that I could stand while working. Result: well, I got way more done today than I have in a long while, even with the headache (which I think has been whammying my ability to focus on anything for ten days). I stood for about 5-5.5 hours today, and will stand tomorrow as long as I can because I happen to like getting work done. It may be just the change affecting me - the last time I booted myself into focusing on a project was right after I rearranged my office - but I will take that! Plus, it's healthier than sitting for those 5-5.5 hours, provided I'm careful of my knees and back. (Not to mention I actually move more when I'm standing - pacing, fidgeting, etc.) Anyway, if it seems that this will be a long-term thing, I'll get one of those nice standing pads that cashiers and chefs use to make it easier on my feet. :)

3) I'm sure there was a third thing I was going to post here. ETA: Oh, yeah. Game of Thrones. Up to ep 5 of season 2 now. We looked about for legal ways to get GoT and of course didn't find any short of subscribing to HBO (because why would they make it simple for people to just give them money and then stream the episodes instead of subscribing?). And then friends of ours passed on the info that AT&T had a 3-month-free offer if you subscribed to it, with the ability to cancel at any time with no penalty (one of them is about to go in for surgery and will be laid up for a while, so they're gathering entertainment options). So, hellooooo season 2 of GoT! It'll end right about the time the 3 months does, and if we forget to unsubscribe and pay for a month, oh hey, $15 for all of season 2. We have no problem with paying money for stuff we like, we just have a problem with paying $15/month for 12 months when all we watch is 10 episodes of one show. (That would be over $15 an episode if we ahd to subscribe for a year!)
