My weekend

I saw Matrix: Revolutions tonight – that's part 3 of the series to those who don't know.

I'm not going to give away any spoilers to it in here, I'll create a dedicated forum for it in another area.

However, let me just say that I thought it was awesome! OHMYGOD kind of awesome. Hehehe.

I've had a headache since yesterday morning. It's been quite strange. I suspect that it's because of a few things all coming together at the same time. On Friday I worked a 12-hour shift because the midnight shift person was off sick. So they asked me to work until midnight and the person who usually works from 5-1am would come in at midnight instead. That was cool by me, as the extra 4 hours was worth quite a reasonable amount of money, what with it being time-and-a-half and all.

However, working a 12-hour shift is probably quite draining. Especially when you spend most of that 12-hours in intensive study of how this bulletin board works so that you can upgrade from a different format without any downtime. I needed to understand the upgrade process, the conversion process, and then the refinement process.

It was intense!

I was still working on it for 3/4 of the day yesterday, and that's when the headache began.

Plus I was dehydrated, so that didn't help. My bedroom gets the morning sun, and I hadn't 'realised' yet that it's not that cold any more, so I still had two thick quilts on. Go the dehydration…

I drank so much water yesterday, but it just wasn't enough.

And then last night. Oh my…

I spent 3 hours trying to get to sleep, and failing miserably. I ended up having to wake Penny at 1am this morning and get her to hunt throughout the house for her 'wheat bag', which I microwaved and put on the back of my neck and head.

It didn't help, but eventually I drifted off to a troubled sleep. And yes, I was taking panadol, but apparently to no effect.

Today I woke up at 7am, after about 4-5 hours of troubled sleep. My headache had dulled down somewhat, to a muted ache in the back of my consciousness. Plus I was feeling queasy. This lasted all day.

I didn't feel well at all.

At around 4pm, I went out to do a little bit of shopping and then to the cinema at 5pm. While shopping, I bought a 'bumbag', one of those things you put around your waste to carry small stuff. I bought it to hold my digital camera, so that it's not around my neck anymore and I don't look so much like a tourist. I also bought some Nurofen, a more powerful headache pill.

I took a couple of them and had a vitamin boosting smoothie while I waited for Penny and some of my workmates to arrive.

By the time Matrix: Revolutions started I was feeling fine! No headache, no queasiness, and just great. I was SO pleased!

After the movie, Penny and I and my two team leaders from work sat around and had dinner and discussed the movie and other stuff. It was cool.

Then I came home.

That's my weekend.

I hope you enjoyed reading about it just slightly more than I enjoyed the weekend.
