Wednesday Weigh-In 20150527

In the past few days, the pain from my hernia was worse than I'd ever felt before. It was my fault for not following my very own hernia mitigation guidelines, particularly the diet-related ones. The biggest culprit was my binge-consumption of dairy products, especially ice cream and condensed milk, which we use to make "coffee treats." Once a coffee treat is made, I drink it down in one breath. They're usually twelve ounces. So on Monday and Tuesday, I completely eliminated all dairy. The hernia no longer hurts, and my weight and waist are noticeably lower.

I'm not sure what to attribute this episode of bloating to. It seems like everything I eat or drink, including water, causes it to some degree. Hmmm, maybe it is the water.

Dream: Catfish

I am standing with some other people from work on a wooden deck or platform about two stories above a canal.  I'm facing upstream.

As I gaze at the surface of the murky, grayish-brown water, I get a sense of foreboding that something sinister is lurking underneath.  A red and white buoy attracts my attention.  Suddenly, it sinks under the water, as a bobber might when a goldfish strikes a worm-baited hook.

Then I see a large grayish-brown catfish rapidly approach the surface of the water.  It's huge gaping mouth  emerges as it leaps toward someone a few feet to my right.  I shout a warning, but the fish does not jump high enough to reach us.

Then I see more of these fish, even larger in size, swimming downstream towards us.  The largest one is about the size of a very large retriever.  I feel unsafe.

Today the laptop gave me a "Blue Screen of Death." It said, cryptically, "BAD_POOL_HEADER" which makes no sense because we don't even have a pool.

So I decided to get help from the manufacturer. They wanted the complete product (model) name (or number), and I figured I'd also make a note of the serial number. I decided to photograph them.

Unfortunately, the camera would not turn on. Well, I suppose the battery was run down, so I put the spare ones in. But that didn't help, either. I wasn't totally alarmed at this point. These were rechargeable batteries, after all. They sometimes just run down after a long time.

But after ten minutes in the charger, they still didn't turn on the camera. So now I think the camera also is shot.

Faults in electronics sometimes happens in spurts, but that usually applies only to plugged in units.
