Headache hangover

I've been having lots of yucky headaches lately and twice in the past month I've dug into my stash of leftover codeine pills from my wisdom teeth extraction.  And today I have a headache hangover.  I'm not sure if it's from the headache, the pills or both.  It's not so bad. I'm kinda dazed.  I didn't realize this until I went outside.  Everything just seems a bit off kilter.  It's kinda like being high on pot without the paranoia, muchies or giggles.

It's always weird being outside when I'm like this.  I feel kinda...not quite floaty. Kinda glidey I guess.  Like I'm just gliding along.  Except when I trip over cracks in the sidewalk although I can't really blame that on feeling vaguely disoriented. I do that enough when I'm normal.  I also tend to fall *up* stairs but that's another story.

I was supposed to go to the gym today. It's supposed to be a gym day.  But I don't think that's a very good idea when I'm in this state.  Me and cardio machines don't always get along when I'm feeling good (the treadmill especially makes me feel kinda dizzy and just generally weird). I'd hate to think how I'd hurt myself on one in this state (or just generally make a food out of myself).  Plus I haven't done laundry yet so my one pair of gym pants is dirty.

The gym wasn't quite as scary as I was expecting it to be.  Seemed to be mostly filled with women with too much money and too much time on their hands so far but that's kinda to be expected in this neighbourhood.  Well...in the middle of the day at least.  I expect it to be slightly different in the evenings.  Additionally the middle of the day ladies don't seem to shower at the gym.  Maybe it's just me but there's something about and after workout shower that just feels better than almost any other shower.  Then again, I have to walk home whereas most of these people have cars (as evidenced by the keys in their hands).

And on that note I'll stop because my head feels wonky. I think I'll go watch one of the rather brainless movies I just rented (Take the Lead and The Devil Wears Prada).  Why is it that every time I go to Blockbuster I get the same guy who tries to flirt with me? It's vaguely amusing.  And why is that the movies I want to see - like The Notorious Bettie Page or Sophie Scholl: Final Days - are never in? They're on my zip list so it's not a big deal but rather annoying all the same.
