But I am feeling so much better today; I have discovered the best chair in the house and am dragging it everywhere I go, sort of like Linus and his blanket. I have also discovered the amazing power of the heated towel - four minutes in the microwave and you've got yourself a little mini-spa for your back. And I have also been able to cut my meds in half today, so I now have my blink reflex back, have stopped drooling, and have gone from sleeping 20 hours a day to no naps at all. But surprisingly my Scrabble game has subsequently gone down the toilet. I guess that's a game best played stoned out of your gourd.
My family deserves some sort of Nobel prize for putting up with my whining this past week and for cleaning the litter box and feeding the cat without my even asking.
And tomorrow I shall finally be bringing you the first of the long-overdue best of lists for 2007 - my favourite handclap songs. Because I feel like cheering.
In the meanwhile, why not enjoy the Radiohead song from which I swiped the title of today's post. It's from the Airbag/How am I Driving? EP which I surreptitiously bought for myself (along with the Radiohead rockumentary Meeting People is Easy) whilst Christmas shopping. I handed them over to the spousal unit when I got home, along with the suggestion that these would be a great present for me. But come Christmas morning, even in my glassy-eyed state I noticed that they were not in my pile o' presents and had to ask about them. Which resulted in a scurry to the bedroom closet and a sheepish handing over of said Radiohead paraphernalia, with the 2 for $25 stickers still affixed.
