Caffeine withdrawal sucks.
Feels like your head wants to split in half?

Thankfully the pain isn't that bad, but the constant headache combined with the queasiness is quite frustrating.

You might want to try a low-caffeine alternative (like Yerba Mate) rather than just going cold turkey. It's the abrupt withdrawal that causes the headaches - believe me, beentheredonethat! Cheesy

Well, I'd love to get rid of this, lol... but one question, would using a low-caffeine substitute prolong things? I'm about 2 days into this, so, based on past experience, I don't expect it to last more than 1 more day (or if I'm lucky, maybe it'll be gone by tomorrow morning). Would ingesting a bit of caffeine tonight or tomorrow morning make the process less annoying, but longer in duration?

theistgal is right that you might want to try yerba mate. I enjoy it frequently (though I also like my coffee and tea!) There is some debate about the stimulant in yerba mate, called mateine which is close enough to caffeine to have its stimulant effects, but different enough that it is generally milder on the system and one is less likely to suffer withdrawal symptoms.

We are certainly within reach of 500,000 posts for the forum; this could easily be attained by/before New Year's.

(I wonder what this reminds me of... Hmmm I think it was a December post, somewhere... Wink )

I just idly noticed that the post counter has over 99,000 on it. 

Anyone want to start quessing when we'll turn it over to 100,000?  Cheesy Before New's Years, I'm reckoning.

You'll find Amazon are surprisingly tolerant and accommodating if you decide to return one copy. They may even refund the original postage as well as the cost of the book. Of course, you'll have to pay the return postage but you can re-use the packaging. Just be honest and give "Inadvertently ordered a duplicate copy" as your reason for wishing to return it.

I sell used books on Amazon, and have accepted returns a few times, no questions asked. Most if the used book sellers will accommodate you to keep their feedback rating high.

Nice Smiley Yeah, besides the book I mentioned above, I also got a package with the wrong book in it, and when I wrote to the seller asking if I could return the book and get the original one I ordered, the seller was very polite, and said they were sending the book out asap, and that once they received the wrong book back they'd reimburse me for the shipping. I have to say, though, that I've bought a lot of stuff off amazon over the years, from both amazon and other sellers, and this was the first time I ever had an issue.

Asterikos, lol, I had the same situation with two of my customers - I'd sent each the wrong book.  What I did was send each of them the other's address so they could send the books directly to each other, and gave them both a full refund on shipping + an extra 50% refund on the book price itself, for the trouble.

I wound up losing a few cents on the transactions but it was worth it to keep the customers happy - and as a lesson to me to be more careful! Smiley

We had 32 trick-or-treaters this evening. We've never been below forty before, and are usually in the low fifties. However, this is one of the coldest Halloween on record, it's just 2C right now,  so I can understand that parents don't want to be out with their kids too long.

But tomorrow morning I start my paper route! 32 customers (including myself); since they're rather scattered around a few blocks, it will take about an hour. Have to have them done by 7 a.m. I'm not sure what time they get delivered to me, but I'll be up by 4:30 - so I guess I'd better be off to bed! (approaching 8:30 p.m. local time right now).

Goodbye for now, my friend

We had 32 trick-or-treaters this evening. We've never been below forty before, and are usually in the low fifties. However, this is one of the coldest Halloween on record, it's just 2C right now,  so I can understand that parents don't want to be out with their kids too long.

But tomorrow morning I start my paper route! 32 customers (including myself); since they're rather scattered around a few blocks, it will take about an hour. Have to have them done by 7 a.m. I'm not sure what time they get delivered to me, but I'll be up by 4:30 - so I guess I'd better be off to bed! (approaching 8:30 p.m. local time right now).

Have fun! Smiley

Why does Microsoft change everything around all the time? Just when you get used to something... BAM! you get an update that changes things.

We haven't had anywhere near 32 trick or treaters here in So. Cal and it's over 60 °.  Must be some other reason (perhaps because it's a work/school night)?

Thanks, and I did have fun!

Don't know what time my papers got delivered to my house, but they were there when I looked out at 4:45 a.m. It took a few extra minutes to go over things to figure out just how I would handle some things, so doing that, and after my morning prayers, it was a few minutes before six that I left the house. It took a bit longer today than it will in the future because I had to be referring to my list of customers, checking my notes, and searching for mail boxes or other delivery locations, but I walked back into my own house about 6:45. Once I get the route learned, it shouldn't take much more than a half hour to do. Of course, by then walking will be more difficult in the snow.

They're predicting a winter with relatively mild temperatures, but lots of snow - only to be expected. If Lake Erie doesn't freeze over, there's always more snow. We get the effect of SW winds coming off Lake Erie, but not nearly what they get in Buffalo, NY, only a half hour away!

I sell used books on Amazon, and have accepted returns a few times, no questions asked. Most if the used book sellers will accommodate you to keep their feedback rating high.

(Mine's still at 100% after 3 years! Smiley )
Funny, I was looking at Catholic books on amazon.com last week and your picture (the one you have here at oc.net) came up.

So when I lived in my ghetto apartment complex, I had tons of trick or treaters. Now that I live in the nice one, well, I got zero trick or treaters.

I have spent the last three days walking from cemetery to cemetery. The bazars with sellers of flowers and candles of cheap quality, the hoards of faithful, the hundred year old grave monuments which take your breath away. I had to stop myself from spitting on the grave of a former Communist party member, which somehow was the only one without a cross in the cemetery. The sad monotony of the hymns sung today, the traffic jams around cemeteries, et cetera creates an insular climate of its own. Somehow I know that this is one of the few times of the year, when this country functions normally.

My old coffee table was getting sort of old and beat up, so I decided to get a new one. However, I didn't bother to get measurements of my current table so that I would know what size table to order (I was browsing online). I eventually settled on a table from Walmart, and had them ship it to the store closest to me. I picked it up today... and I'm regretting not thinking this out more. If I did the measurements/calculation correctly, my new table is 49% smaller than my old one. I usually have multiple remote controls, multiple stacks of books, and multiple bunches of papers strewn across the table. Not now. I'm really missing that extra space.

Maybe you could add some vertical storage space - like desktop shelves, etc. ?

or even something on the side.  I have a great little 5 drawer plastic tower with tons of space both inside & on top for me to lay random papers & books!  (office max = your friend)

LOL, I love how you say it's "49% smaller" -- not just "about half the size."  Wink

I saw a large bird perched on the dock at the lake behind my house. It stood there with its wings out, for a long time. I don't have pictures, but it was beautiful.   Smiley
