I was asked to describe "Spooky Heat" on twitter
The year I first moved to Austin, we had a day where the high reached 112 degrees. It was so hot that we had heat lightning in the afternoon. I remember driving up Mopac after work, with lightning crackling in the sky; it was so dry that it didn’t rain, and the sun felt extra close to Earth. I felt like I was on Venus. It’s hot in East Texas (probably 5-10 degrees cooler and more...
Metric - Synthetica I can think for myself ...
pills, aquatherapy, vagina workouts, bike accidents, my sister, shopping, job prospects [[MORE]] I feel pretty good today. I started taking the Flexeril at night, and it’s helping with my back/neck/collar bones, and I haven’t been too sleepy in the morning. So maybe there’s hope. I had a physical therapy evaluation yesterday, and the therapist said I have reduced mobility in...
STFU, Conservatives: FREE AND CHEAP DRUGS YA'LL →
stfuconservatives: sass—butt: Hey Tumblr, if you’re poor, under-or-unemployed, and/or uninsured, you can probably get free drugs directly from the manufacturers. Yeah, free. Like seriously all you pay for is maybe the doctor/nurse visit you’ll probably need to go to for the prescription. The basics,…

Adam sent me a song, brain not work

Texas Weather Blog: Why is it so hot? →
hangingfire: All you wanted to know about how a high-pressure system is making the weather in Texas so goddamn miserable right now. I guess my other question is, where do these high-pressure systems come from? Is it just a consequence of the movement of global air currents? Is it a feedback loop—heat causing high pressure which creates conditions for yet more heat and so on? Some combination of...
It is June, and I am tired of being brave.– Anne Sexton, The Truth The Dead Know (via jenaheatstoomuch)
One more bonus "fact"
blackbutshining: shorterexcerpts: Every so often (I should probably do better at recording them) I will have really vivid dreams in locations I know I’ve never been to, but re-occur. And probably don’t actually exist. Like an Athens, GA with a Roman Coliseum instead of Sanford Stadium, and a very large shopping mall (that one cropped up last night.) And I’d love to know the science behind why...
january 2012: this will be my year
june 2012: well shit
new rheumatologist talked over me and said he didn’t do disability paperwork because it was too much trouble, and gave me a prescription for muscle relaxers, and told me to take one in the afternoon…which would make me fall asleep at my desk. I know Flexeril very well; we go way back. Worst.med.hangover.ever.
Doctors have claimed I'm Bipolar type II
theslenderoctopus: Yeah, I’m pretty much a really hot Kurt Cobain. Or Trent Reznor. Whichever you prefer. Or Sylvia Plath or Ernest Hemingway. I don’t think my death is going to go very well.
I think Michael Fassbender was actually more arousing in Prometheus than in Shame.
We watched Shame last night and Prometheus tonight and I am really confused.
Don’t you drink? I notice you speak slightingly of the bottle. I have drunk...– Ernest Hemingway (via pizzacrust)
and now those 60 Vicodin are staring at me. My shoulders have been hurting like fuck for the last two days. I called him about breakthrough pain a week ago—I wanted an OTC recommendation. But I feel like if I take one, I’m falling down the rabbit hole. I had a damn hard time with those Trams, probably mostly because I did the whole bipolar guilt and shame cycle shit. and I...
I have a month to figure this out.
And 60 fucking Vicodins
Pandora’s box. Fuck me.
