Bummer: I happened to be up at 0230 - 0600 because of a suspected subdural
haematoma which not even 10 T-3's in 24 hours had put a dent into (not the most
pleasant experience). It was almost certainly a severe migraine, as it turned out.
I went to emergency and got a shot of toradol and that finally cut the pain and I
went to sleep. But I was acutely aware of the weather. Mostly cloudy, and a very
bright full moon. Nary a shooting star in sight.
