Sorry, not having a good day…

Up at 3, couldn’t go back to sleep. Did chicken chores early, came back and napped till 9:30 to Laddie’s consternation. Out to town for the Monday water run and only now got things put away…

I’m okay for fuel for a while but I got the wrong propane fittings again. I’m going to have to take the whole damned regulator in to fit the hoses to it. Should have done that last Monday.

I feel like I’m working on a migraine or something. Wanted to shoot out the damned ceiling speakers in the food store: I understand you guys aren’t choosing the most irritating songs in pop music history deliberately but do you have to crank the volume so high? It’s not often I come back from the little town all nerved up and I was kind of upset with myself for getting into a state, but now I’m having vision troubles and a headache and I think I’m just going to go lie down. Checked on the chicks before coming home, so I’m all caught up on chores for a while.

    Hope you’re feeling better soon.

    It may not be the music that’s bugging you. What the problem could be is the flicker rate of the lighting. There are some stores where the lighting they use causes me to have migraines within several minutes upon entry.

    Hope a nap and a good night’s sleep fixes you up.

    Could be there’s been a huge barometric pressure change. Or just lack of sleep. Or sinus blockage. Or what Mike says about the lighting – they may have changed it since your last visit. Carry some of those squishy squeeze to fit earplugs with you. They fit in a small pocket.

    If gun owners (and carriers) were as dangerous and unbalanced as the banners say, there would be shot-out speakers all through retail stores and elevators everywhere.

    Sales staff must be either intentionally oblivious to customers, or just plain stupid when they crank up the volume on the (c)rap “music” in-store.

    The ONLY good example of appropriate musak that I can recall is, of all places, the local computer games shop. They play, at reasonable volume, the background music from the Final Fantasy series of games. Mostly composed by Nobuo Uematsu, Naoshi Mizuta, and Kumi Tanioka, some of it is pure, distilled genius akin to the old masters.

To the stake with the heretic!
