Well, I was up fairly early this morning having not slept very well. I developed a mild earache about halfway through the night and discovered I was out of ibuprofen and had to take excedrin which usually has the side effect of making my ears ring worse than they normally do. The earache's subsided now but I'm left with a fuzzy headed feeling.
I've been alternating between doing the laundry and watching reruns of Burn Notice
. They're playing on USA until 4 PM. I love this show, the characters all have a certain amount of weirdness. The first time I saw Jeffrey Donovan I thought he was ugly, I didn't like his mouth and teeth, but he won me over quickly. Gabrielle Anwar alternates from being very beautiful to looking like she's on the verge of starvation, I get distracted counting the bones visible in the top of her chest. I just saw her on a TV movie, last week I think. I can't think of the name of it but she finds out her son is alive after believing he and his father had died when the boy was young. The father had actually faked their deaths and hidden from her so she wouldn't get custody when they divorced. It wasn't bad until the end when all of a sudden Mom and Dad were okay with each other. If someone had stolen my child and made me think he was dead, I wouldn't be getting over that quite as easy as she did, very unrealistic.
Then in passing on his way to work my husband said something about earthquakes in Yellowstone and the world coming to an end (he's like that, he's a very gloomy person who's always blaming somebody else, usually the government, for everything and saying "they" will get payed back by some natural disaster, ignoring the fact that it will greatly impact his own life if the worst ever does happen) so I had to come and look that up. I saw something not too long ago about Yellowstone, one of those "what if" things about the horrors that would happen should it ever erupt again. Plus, I recently read C.J. Box's recent Joe Pickett story and it was set at Yellowstone and a lot of background info about it was given. It's a little scary if you think about it too hard. Anyway, there's been over 250 small quakes there the past few days, more than the usual amount. Even the scientists are saying that though small quakes aren't unusual, this many in something like a three day period are.
