Obligatory: the “real feel” temp in NJ was 106 degrees at 3pm. It’s like living on the surface of a humid sun.
Nose and ear rant: I bought a pair of souped-up prescription glasses about 18 months ago and they’ve never been very comfortable to wear due to my snout roots and ear-tops. I have a within-average-width-nose on my face surface, but very wide subterranean snout bones, so eyeglass bridges aren’t very comfortable over the long run. As I bitch about con frequencia, I still have acne at 51yo and my glasses’ earpieces rub on my tender ears and cause little zits.
Sadly, glasses have become absolutely necessary now, so I ordered new, lighter frames with ultra-light lenses. I did away with the transitions I have on my current pair, but it still came to $440 :mad: thanks, massive subterranean nose and stoopid greasy ears.
Viral(?) sinus infection: I endured four days of an agonizing headache then finally saw the doc yesterday and got some Imitrex and steroidal nose spray. Her best guess is that it’s sinusitis due to the pain points on my head, but I don’t have any discharge and haven’t had a fever higher than 100 degrees on and off so quite likely it’s not bacterial (thusly no antibiotics, just waiting it out). I could accept and even, perhaps, embrace feeling low-level cruddy on a cold winter’s day whilst snuggled in blankies and watching comfort TV, but feeling yicky during an evil heatwave is pure, unalloyed misery.
