Frog Wizard

Douglas Noel Adams, 1952 - 2001

Douglas Adams died shortly after suffering a heart attack on May 11th, 2001.

For those of you unfamiliar with his work, he's the author of the amazing Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy books, as well as many others. He's among the greatest Science Fiction and Comedy authors ever, and one of my personal favorites.

Your genius will be missed.

Nifty feature.

For anyone who hasn't heard about it yet, bradfitz added a nifty new feature to link to people's journals. Just do

and you get it automatically linked, with the cheesy picture, as demonstrated above.

Neat, eh? ;-)

I think this is the worst headache I can ever remember having. At first I thought it was just a caffeine headache, but sufficient quantities of caffeinated beverages should have removed it by now if that were the case.

'Sides, normally I can tell a caffeine headache. There's just something about them I know. A familiarity. Which shows that I ingest way too much caffeine.

Either way, this one is horrible because it's both at the base of my skull, and right behind my eyes, and I feel like my head is both imploding exploding at the same time, while there's also a drill driving into my head from the back. As if that wasn't bad enough, it seems to be spreading, as my neck especially, and my shoulders to a lesser extent, are feeling sore and uncomfortable now, too. Although, I think those are most likely being caused by the tension and pain of the headache.

I haven't, to my knowledge, ever suffered from migraine headaches, but I've heard some nasty accounts from friends that do. If this is what it's like, they have my sympathy. I can barely type right now, it hurts to concentrate, and all in all, this is no turning out to be a most unpleasant way to start off the week.
