It has to get better after this week -- at least the PMS and trouble sleeping, anyway. I've put off trying a new undereye concealer until the psoriasis flareup around my eyes simmers down, or at least stops burning when I apply Eucerin to the scaly patches. Grr.

I put in some quality time on needlework over the past few days, so digitization of the New World Discovery pattern is just under 50% done (when complete, the design is 272 stitches wide by 203 stitches high; the kit packaging gives an approximate finished size of 16.5"x12.5" on 18-count Aida) and I'm working on the border of the Winnie the Pooh baby announcement I'm doing for a friend whose baby was born just before New Year's.

I've been saving the codes off various soda promotions this summer and entering them at my leisure. It's absurdly entertaining since I use the FlashBlock Mozilla extension, but we actually won something in today's batch of code entries: a coupon for a free 2-liter of 7UP. Whee.

Poking around the less-visited bits of the grocery store paid off today, too. We found Mori-Nu silken tofu for $1 per package sharing markdown space with artificial vanilla blend (not a typo, that's exactly what the packaging said) and assorted kosher products.

We also picked up a copy of the June 2005 Glamour after someone stopped and stared at Debra Messing on the cover. On the bottom center of the Do's and Don'ts page, there's a woman illustrating "too tight brights" that's apparently braless under a tight pink top; I think her visible nipple outline can give my entire rack a run for the money.

It was almost as hysterical as the part of last night's Don and Tasos Show we caught where they were discussing cow-excreta products and one of them sounded honestly confused that cow's milk and urine do not come from the same holes. (Bonus punchline: we were listening to that instead of our local NPR affiliate because Lone Star Saturday Night wasn't grabbing Vogon by the ears.)

Feel better soon! I think I have constant PMS and I'm sure you know what I'm talking about with that one! ;)

I have been suffering from PMS and lack of sleep myself, lately. Ugh. I hate PMS depressedness. I take a page from Holly Golightly and call them the Mean Reds.

Hope you feel better! I like Eucerin; that seems to be a pretty good moisturizer type thing. I get that same sort of thing, right on my cheeks below my eyes, too. When I remember, I tend to use an Oil of Olay knockoff from Walgreens. It seems to work out OK, but I never remember to use it, and I'd much rather have something that gets rid of it totally than just lets it down a little, but whatchagonna do?

Flashblock is awesome. I like it more so now that it's got a whitelist built in. (Before, dezro just had to tell me how to edit it manually so it'd have its own whitelist.)

I don't get the non-typo, actually. But that's probably because I don't typically shop for that sorta thing.

I'm not sure what Too Tight Brights is, but it sounds kind of amusing.

Someone needs to tell those guys that milk =/= pee. Though, perhaps, from a long ways away, so they don't retaliate upon anger on finding out that they've not been drinking what they've thought they've been drinking. (seriously, how do you not know that?)

Lone Star Saturday Night? Is that a country show or something on NPR? Perhaps it's just because the title reminds me of "Austin City Limits".

Also, hate askin', but have you heard back from Hayden w/r/t MySQL stuff?

I feel you on the PMSedness. Hope you're feeling better.

Now I'M off to nap (hey ... I can't study ... too boring. I might as well do SOMETHING productive). :-)
