mellicious: pink manicure (wtf heart)

Does it make me sound really neurotic that I talk about Ambien all the time? (Or does it just make me sound like a junkie?) Well, I don't care, they have improved the quality of my life, because what I am is a big ol' insomniac, and I do have official permission from my doctor to take them 26 days a month. That's a weird number of pills to write a prescription for, isn't it? I guess that's supposed to be 30 minus 4, because I'm supposed to take a day off every week. Usually I try to take TWO days off every week - Friday and Saturday - but this is my first one in two weeks, I guess, because last weekend I was still pretty sick and I kept waking up to cough, and Benadryl just wasn't making me sleepy enough to do any good. So I got up both nights and took half an Ambien in the middle of the night. Pretty sad.

The coughing is gradually subsiding, by the way. I'm still coughing some, but it gets a little less every day. Actually I had a huge coughing fit last night, but I'm pretty sure that was allergy-related - I had a box of Clementines and a couple of them had managed to go terribly moldy already (stupid damp climate) and when I went to throw them out I think I got a couple of big lungfuls of mold. You could see it blow up into the air. Ick.

(I'm coughing less, but I still kinda felt like crap today. I have really had enough with the feeling bad.)


[personal profile] entelein was dissing on the Chipmunks last night and I was sort of (playfully) defending them in comments, and after I thought about it, I remembered why I am still sort of overly fond of the Chipmunks. When I was an undergraduate, somebody had one of their albums, and we used to, well, you know, ingest somewhat-illegal substances* and then listen to the Chipmunks from time to time, and really, at the time that seemed like the funniest thing on earth. That and Magical Mystery Tour. Go figure.


*Remember that I graduated from UT (the first time) in 1981. I think it was pretty fair to call them only somewhat illegal, in Austin back in those days before "Just Say No" - people used to say that you had to go and wave something under a policeman's nose in order to get in trouble, and I'd say that that was pretty much true.

(Boy, now I *really* sound like a junkie.)
