The Musculature of Caffeine

I don’t know what it means either, that’s just what’s on my mind. I have an A & P final tomorrow night (Anatomy & Physiology) and need coffee to supplement my adrenalin freak-out. I’d rather have crafted a nicely rambling post about keeping a meditation journal, my plans for writing for a couple of hours a week and working out and getting healthy and drop some hints about the neato thingy I’m kidnapping TGP off to do/see/be at this coming Saturday (after finals) for an early XMas/Solstice/Holiday gift. But really it’s all about getting more caffeine into me so I can memorize all the muscles in the human body, including origin, insertion, and ennervation, before tomorrow night. This school thing is kicking my ass.

Cold sick flu thingy. Not pretty.

School starts in a few days. Pretty, but not if cold sick flu thingy ridden am I.

Going to Hawaii in ten days. Pretty, but not if cold sick flu thingy ridden am I.

Cold sick flu thingies tend to turn into walking pneumonia for me. Not pretty. Ugh more.

Day 5 Without Vioxx

Not there yet, but looking forward to what she said whilst eyeballing the Celebrex…

After Great Pain, by Emily Dickinson

After great pain, a formal feeling comes
The nerves sit ceremonious, like tombs
The stiff heart questions was it he, that bore,
And yesterday, or centuries before?
The feet, mechanical, go round
Of ground, or air, or ought
A wooden way
Regardless grown,
A quartz contentment, like a stone.
This is the hour of lead
Remembered, if outlived,
As freezing persons recollect the snow.
First chill – then stupor – then the letting go.
