A miserable migrane? My how maleficently malicious! How malignantly misanthropic! I hope you are fully recovered.

No post today? However shall we cope?! It's not like we are practiced at inventing our own topics, or usurping the blog... ;)

Sherry Howard said...

Migraines are miserably miserable, making one markedly morose with minor, marginal mobility. Glad you're better!

In reality, I love it when you miss a post occasionally. Otherwise, you seem bearly (not a typo:picture, guys!) human!

E.M. Goldsmith said...

Migraines are the worst. Absolute soul suckers. Feel better, Janet

Jenny Chou said...

Take care and feel better Janet. :)

Brigid said...

IJ says "Aaaaarrgh," which is either Piratese or baby for "Feel better, Janet!"

Amy Johnson said...

All alliteration and assonance aside, simply seeking to wish you well, Janet.

BJ Muntain said...

Migraines suck. I hope you feel better soon.

Migraines are so horrible, they get in the way of your fingers sometimes, as in missing an 'r' in 'miseable'. :(

Melanie Sue Bowles said...

No "sorry" required... and I'm hoping you're on the mend.

Theresa said...

I hope you're better by now, Janet. Migraines are the worst.

CynthiaMc said...

Been there. Sending healing thoughts and prayers.

nightsmusic said...

Ice on the head, hot water bottle on the feet, dark and meds are the only thing that's ever worked for me. Feel better soon.

kathy joyce said...

Feel better soon Janet. You never need to apologize for taking a day off, especially when you're sick.

Hope all are well. Especially our friends in Texas and along the raining coast.

Lisa Bodenheim said...

oh no! How infelicitous that you were felled by an effing migraine.

I had wondered as it's so unlike you to not write anything. Hope you ease back into work and stay better.

Lynne Main said...

Ouch, Janet! Hope you feel better today than you did yesterday. Migraines are no fun. Take care.

John Davis Frain said...

Is "migraine" a code word for "someone left the liquor cabinet unlocked" or have I been hanging out with the Urban Dictionary too long?

Oh, sympathy! Right, right, sorry. Ummmm ... see if there's anything left in the cabinet. That'll either make it better or make you forget where it hurts. Sympathy is my strong suit!

RosannaM said...

What a crummy way to spend a weekend. No apologies necessary. I hope you are fully back on your feet, and that your Monday holds something spectacular.

gypsyharper said...

Migraines are the worst. Hope you're feeling much better today!

Joseph Snoe said...

Sorry for the debilitating pain.

I need the time off anyway. I'm watching TV for Texas weather since I'm originally from Houston and my family and other relatives and friends are still there.

Beth Carpenter said...

Ouch. Hope you're better soon.

Lennon Faris said...

Ooof. No need for apology. Hope you feel better!

I do apologize that I'm chuckling over here from John (mss) Frain's comment.

Lennon Faris said...

OT - Btw, anyone hear from Julie Weathers lately? was just thinking of her with the Texas stuff. Hope she's OK.

Julie said...

Migraines are awful. I hope you're feeling better soon.

Hope you feel better soon, Janet. Migraines are the worst!

Jennifer R. Donohue said...

I've been having a migraine-y couple of weeks myself, I definitely understand!

Janet Reid said...

Lennon Julie lives in not-Texas these days, so I'm hoping she hereself is ok. I have a feeling she knows some folks who aren't ok though.

The pictures of Houston scare the snark out of me.
When I think of the damage incurred here in NYC by Hurricane Sandy, I shudder to think of what Houston faces to dig out of this.

Theresa said...

I don't know if this was a joke or not, but someone reported seeing a shark in a flooded area of Houston. Maybe even had taken a picture of it. Honest, I heard this on radio news.

I hope all those in Houston manage to stay safe.

Jen said...

Hope you feel better soon!

Lennon Faris said...

Thanks, Janet, glad to hear that she is prob. not there. Yeah those pics are something else.

kdjames.com said...

Sorry to hear you've been in pain. Hope you're taking a break from screen-time . . . and not reading comments. Now I feel guilty for adding to the comments. *sigh* Take care of yourself.

My grains, your grains, their grains, they all suck.
A grain by any other name would still be non-processed.
The my-grain in Spain stays mainly on my-plain.
Okay, stupid stops now.

Lynne Main said...

Theresa, if it's the same shark photo I saw on the Weather Channel's website, it's a fake, according to the weather gods. Janet, with regards to Hurricane Sandy, where I live didn't even take the brunt of that storm. Yet we still had 60 MPH winds and no power for five days.

So yes, Houston, Corpus Christi and surrounding areas are facing horrendous circumstances right now and will be for time to come.The pictures I've seen are frightening, for sure. Sometimes Mother Nature is very nice and other times very nasty.

Prayers to all.

AJ Blythe said...

I hope by now you're snapping your teeth without wincing, JR.

AJ Blythe said...

Read everyone's comments about Texas so have just been reading news sites. Wowzers. That's a lot of water! I hope all Reiders, and their friends and families are safe.

Colin Smith said...

Janet: Thanks for the reminder about Julie W. It's good to know she's okay.

Do we have any Reefers in the Houston/Gulf Coast region? If so, stay safe and let us know you're okay. You're in our thoughts and prayers.

Theresa said...

Lynne, that's probably the shark photo. Maybe I missed the part in the news story where they talked about it as a hoax. I guess it's been floating around since a few hurricanes back.

Lynne Main said...

Theresa, what I saw was a clip on the Weather Channel website talking about four or five different photos that they said to not retweet etc., because they were fake shots. The shark was one of those shots, and there was another photo showing a tornado supposedly swallowing up a rainbow. Stuff like that.

However, the website did show a genuine photo of an alligator washed up onto a street and that critter looked hungry...yikes!

Julie Weathers said...

Hey, y'all. I've had a few people check in on me. Yes, I'm fine. My son in the area, the one who had the bull at Madison last year, is safe. My former editor, forever friend is in the Lake Dallas area and they haven't received the promised rain yet. I'm assuming my trainer friends in Houston were smart enough to ignore the idiot mayor and get their horses out. Some have been caught before and know the consequences of trying to haul dozens of horses in bad weather. I won't go into those details.

Hopefully Dickenson gets evacuated today. It will be impossible to get people out soon. The Cajun navy has mobilized if you haven't seen it. God bless them.

Anyway, thank you all for your concern. Please keep praying for Texas. More is to come. Word has it a family of six drowned earlier today. It's a very sad time. Thankfully, emergency crews were being set up before it hit, so that helps.

Otis may be the star of the show, bless his heart.



Julie Weathers said...

And Janet, I am very sorry you are feeling poorly. Migraines are miserable. I will send you gentle hugs.

Megan V said...

Glad to see you're ok Julie, I'm keeping my fingers crossed for your friends as well as Joe Snoes friends as well as anyone who has friends or family in that area.

And Janet, I am very glad the migraine finally relented and I'm hoping it stays at bay.

CynthiaMc said...

Joseph and Julie - sending prayers for Houston. My son's Simo and her family are leaving today with supplies for their kinfolk - one aunt's house is sheltering 5 families (all related). They canoed each other to "the island" as they call it. They are grateful they are all together and everything else can be replaced.

Our family in Austin reports monsoons but not much else. Our Texas A&M family had some flooding, nothing major. Sis in Dallas says it hasn't even rained there.

Prayers and hugs to all.

Panda in Chief said...

Sympathy for your miserable migraine. As a fellow sufferer, I feel your pain.
I'm working on a theory that only highly intelligent, creative people get migraines.
You're welcome.

roadkills-r-us said...

Janet, Janet, Janet. Considering what we pay for this service, you're going to have to do better than that.
Oh, wait...

In the Austin area, several hours from the coast, we got about 7" of rain over two days (at least where I live). Very few people had to deal with flooding here. Power outages from fallen limbs were a bigger problem here. Houston and coastal areas, of course, are another matter.
Houston is in a no-win situation. With the metro area between six and seven million, there aren't enough roads to evacuate everyone in a week, much less a couple of days. And that assumes everyone could evacuate- many cannot. Hurricane Rita proved that with people gridlocked for days. People died in their cars, going nowhere.
