Random news

JAW Fan informed me that the Doritos Cheeseburger flavour have arrived locally. This is more exciting than local strawberries, sez I. I am on the verge of going on a drug holiday (no, I'm not going to Colombia). This means I will be quitting my hated cholesterol medication for 6 to 9 months to see how well I can control my levels on my own. I have about 10 days worth of pills to finish from my last prescription.

This, of course, means if I want to gorge on Cheeseburger-flavoured Doritos, I have to do it within the next 10 days. Busy, busy.

I'm hating the heat wave, but I have yet to experience a sleepless night. Seems each summer I come up with a new trick for getting to sleep. This week's innovation is to put a lot of baby powder on every part of me that normally sticks to another part in the night. For example, at the elbow, in the fold where I bend my arm. Load that up with baby powder so there is no stickiness. It worked amazingly well last night. Back of the knees, too. So I can scrunch in fetal position a bit without going "ooooh sticky".

Yay, Holland! All the way, crazy orange people!

Ice-pack (non-leaking type) in the pillow is a great trick I discovered out of desperation years ago.

Knock wood, have not needed to use it yet.
