I was a surly lad yesterday - the nyquil didn't really wear off until about 2pm, so I was stuck in the off state until then.

I had managed to aggravate my shoulder injury while sleeping, to the point where I couldn't lift my arms fully. This did not improve my mood.

I skipped the gym, and went home to put ice on my shoulder.

The lovely neeuqdrazil took care of me when she got home, though, and made maple-chili salmon. We finally got to see the season finale of NCIS. I had the advantage of knowing what was coming at the end.

I wonder if perhaps "RICE" (rest, ice, compression, elevation) should be amended to RICES, to include sex. I slept like a rock last night, and woke up with 60% less shoulder pain.

I'm debating whether or not to go to the gym tonight - the warmup and stretching at least would probably be good for me. On the other hand, I have some errands to do downtown before saturday night, and if I do those things tonight, and let myself heal another night, I could have a better time at the gym tomorrow.

Also, today I have learned that peppermint is a fragile flavour - if I mix anything else in with it, it gets overwhelmed. I am going to have to experiment further to get the fruity, minty herbal tea that I want.

I also slept like a rock last night - hooray for sex!

You've had my chamomile-peppermint-fruit tea, right? The chamomile seems to smooth out the fruit, and lets the peppermint come through.

Which fruit tea did you take to work - was it the strawberry one? It's *very* strong - you really only need a very little bit.

Yeah, that's the tea I brought. I used twice as much peppermint as strawberry, and the mint still lost. I tried mint and camomille last week, and it didn't have the minty kick I was looking for either. I think a big part of my problem is that I want it to be really minty. Maybe I should just get myself some peppermint oil or something.

I have peppermint oil at home if you'd really like, love. But I'd try just using a tiny bit of the fruit with your regular amount of peppermint.

I am convinced that sex makes everything better (except possibly STIs)
