  x Maker Faire this weekend; go with Colleen?  $25/person is a bit much.
  % Bear of little brain.  Went in to garage after bacon, but of course
    totally forgot about it once I got there.  Remembered when going in to
    wake Colleen, then lost my coffee mug (which was in the office behind the
    chair, and visible through the mesh back).

  * Colleen wants to go to Costco and Container Store
    % Costco is tiring - crowded, and things are heavy and bulky.  Hurt my
      right wrist a little manhandling the cart, though it's ok now.
    ! I get impatient following Colleen through the aisles.
  * 15min:  puttering in bedroom.
  * dinner:  caprese (with jalapeno), tuna sashimi.  Yum.
  % 7:30 sleepy
  * a little practice for Baycon
  * 15min:  tentative setlist for Baycon.  7 songs, 24:14
  * 15min:  printed fax cover sheet(?s) for Lenscrafters receipts.
  * the receipts I need are simply gone.  Both the Lenscrafters and last
    month's Kaiser mailorder.  Unhappy bear.

Was something supposed to have happened yesterday? Oh, right. The end of the world, or something like that. Must have missed it. I got a surpising number of comments on my "Apocalypse? No" post, though.

I did read Revelation for Skeptics, thanks to a link from [livejournal.com profile] gridlore, who added,

I went to the Container Store and Costco with Colleen, where we spotted a lovely package of three ahi tuna steaks, which turned into sashimi for dinner. Talk about easy. There was also a caprese-type salad. Almost as easy. Yum.

I did a little practicing for Baycon; about half of my tentative setlist.

I also printed fax coversheets for a bunch of healthcare receipts, which I then totally failed to find. (Most of them turned up this afternoon, fortunately.)

On the down side, no walk. And my memory was even worse than usual -- I seemed to have the attention span of a mayfly on speed. Something about the methocarbamol? Anyway.

And I don't really like Costco much. It's crowded and noisy and tiring, and things are bulky and heavy -- I hurt my wrist manhandling the cart. The deals are worthwhile, but I'd rather let Colleen go with someone else who really enjoys it.

A pretty decent day. Could have been much worse. :)

I'm on methocarbamol as well, and yes, I've been wondering lately if I've somehow acquired adult-onset ADD. It's been coming on slowly ever since I started the med a couple years ago.

The list of possible side effects gives "stomach upset, nausea, flushing, constipation, headache, blurred vision, lightheadedness, dizziness or drowsiness " as the more common ones; I've had none of those. "Slowly increasing inability to concentrate" isn't on the list; I'd been attributing that to the infamous "fibromyalgia fog," but I'll have to check it out. If I discover anything, I'll let you know.

Edited due to subject of post.

Yeah; as it turns out, "muscle relaxants" don't actually relax muscles directly; they're just CNS depressants. That's a class I've had highly variable side-effects from.

I'm tempted to just have an extra glass of gin before bed-time -- at least the effects are predictable and I know it'll metabolize before morning.
