March 19, 2010

Oh, no. What have I gotten myself into? What could I possibly write about today for what seems an impossibly large 500 words? I really haven't done anything today beyond watch a movie and play Sims 3. I haven't watched anybody else do anything particularly interesting. I did intend to go to the library this morning but my strange sleep schedule threw me off and I slept through their open times. I doubt a trip to the library would give me much to write about anyway. Pretty soon, the weather will be warm enough to start bicycling again and I should have something new to write about. It's probably warm enough right now but I'm a giant wuss about the cold so I'm putting it off. Also, I hate filling my tires with air, which desperately needs to be done after sitting in the garage all winter.

Blockbuster may end up hating having me as a customer. I'm flipping through so many DVDs. One of their distribution centers is located in Minneapolis so the movies that are mailed here get here the next day. So, basically, I'm watching two movies every two or three days. Granted, I don't watch all of them. I rented "Ice Age 3" for my mother and have no desire to see it. "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button" was the last one I saw. I didn't realize it was a romance when I rented it. If I had known, I probably wouldn't have bothered with it. But, I'm glad I did. It's the first movie since I started the whole Blockbuster thing that I would rate 5 stars (out of 5). I am so NOT a romance fan. Make even the slightest mistake in a romance movie and I'll taunt it forever. Then again, like Titanic (which I also like), it's as much a historical drama as it is a romance.

Many months ago, I started having these odd episodes of vertigo. Every time I'd lean my head forward or back, the room would begin to spin violently around me and, if I didn't right myself immediately, I'd get dizzy, lose balance, and have to sit down. Luckily, it went away within a week or two. It seems to have returned slightly. This morning, as I lay in bed trying to fall asleep, I watched the ceiling swing from side to side. It isn't unbearable like it was the first time, though, so I'm not too worried about it.

That isn't quite 500 words but it's good enough.

I had a very mild form of the dizziness you write about. I think it was low blood pressure, because when I stopped taking ginkgo biloba (which lowers BP) it went away. I hope that helps.
