fatigue is not my friend

I stopped drinking Diet Coke as of last Friday and boy, am I feeling it. No headaches, but extreme fatigue and some disorientation. Gah.

Plus I discovered a sty on Sunday, which worsened on Monday morning, and so I made an early morning trek to the urgent care clinic. I took the bus from the clinic to Ballston Metro which unhappily was evacuated and closed while I was already in the station. I spent all of Monday with hot towels over my eyes and listening to the thunderstorm.

I managed at least to watch My Life as a Dog and Amélie. I enjoyed Amélie a lot more; probably because it showed such an idealized view of Paris (so clean!) quite like the New York City of You've Got Mail. My Life as a Dog was cute in some parts and painful in others. I suppose that childhood is painful for most people, and universally so - even in rural 1950s Sweden.

Congratulations on kicking the diet coke! Did you read that recent study about sodas in the diet? What prompted the change?

Yeah, that study, plus the expense, and my distorted sleeping patterns.

Though I'm not a happy camper right now. I am so much more productive on diet Coke!

I love Amelia, though I've never seen My Life as a Dog. Is it by Lasse Halstroem?

Yep. It was hard to watch but there were some good laughs and Sweden looked really beautiful.
