This is really weird but I woke up this morning and it really feels like Christmas. No, I didn't buy any cool toys and I really am not looking forward to anything today but for some weird reason, if I didn't know the date, I would swear it was Christmas.
There are some factors that could attribute to my weirdness.
First, there are two kind of big tropical storms chilling off the coast of Japan right now. This has pretty much put all of Japan under a series of warnings and advisories. Fukuchiyama has gale force wind, heavy rain, and flood advisories. These are advisories, not warnings so my town isn't as bad off as a lot of others. Either way, the storms have been really messing with the air pressure.
Since the air pressure has been nutty, my sinuses are going through the roof. When I got done teaching last night, I felt kind of weird. By the time I got home and finished eating dinner, I was having full on sinus issues with the core of my head feeling like it should be much bigger than it actually is. I went from clear with a mild headache at the start of dinner to big headache, big headedness, and not tasting anything at the very end. It happened that quick. I took some stuff for it and went to sleep but the stuff I took didn't do the job as well as I would have liked. I had weird dreams last night and was waking myself up due to snoring because of the sinuses. I can't tell you how often I woke up.
So around 8:30am I got up and took some different stuff and it worked. Like, really worked. My head feels full but I don't feel pain from it and I'm slightly loopy.
Its also really quite around here save for the weather outside. The wind is blowing like mad and its making stuff bump into other stuff outside. Something also was blown over last night and made a huge crash but I don't know what it was. I am saying "stuff" a lot in this post, sorry. I am blaming the drugs.
Anywho, all of these factors culminate into the single feeling of Christmas for some odd reason. I feel really perky, maybe I am a tad higher than I thought.
