Friday forkery

It's like a throbbing toothache of the mind.
--Green Day, "Give Me Novacaine"
I'm coming down with a migraine, the kind that makes me wish someone would jab a needleful of morphine into the back of my skull (any volunteers?), so I'll just refer to you this, in case you were looking for something to do over the weekend with your friends and family.

Just remember what the Oracle told Neo: There is no fork spoon.


You totally have my sympathy Jeri. I too suffer from migraines and I am allergic to the prescription meds for it. Knocks me out for 48 hours. Migraines are the worst. I'm sorry you have one.

Thanks! I decided to do our taxes, rather than try to write today. Just get all the suffering over with at once. :-)

Can't wait for the dishwasher to finish so I can set up my Fork-Bending party.

Um I hate to tell you this, but I think taxes will make it worse.:-)

Aww, it's okay. I think I nipped it in the bud with a combination of Aleve and Tylenol. I didn't realize until very recently that you can take both together, since they work in different ways. Maybe I've found the secret.

Thanks for your concern, Anonymous, but I don't take either of those, and the article you linked to mentions nothing about migraines.

Is there some reason you keep linking to FoxNews articles from my comment pages? Usually I just delete your comments that include links to irrelevant political articles, but this one seemed connected to my post, so I checked it out.

Please stop.
