Day 4 of no coffee and I have to say I’m doing much better than the last few times I cycled out caffeine. What is bothering me however is some kind of throat irritation, which I picked up trick or treating with the kids on Halloween, being in the cold for a few hours and breathing through my mouth. I noticed it yesterday, but it clearly isn’t finished today. What is interesting about it is that it is exclusively in my throat, no other symptoms. I mean of course I’m getting a little bit of brain fog from not being in homeostasis, but that’s manageable. I’m also waiting for a fresh shipment of Qualia, so I’ll just blame the brain fog on that.

Paintball Rant: I may have said this once before, but it is worth re-irritating! We need an immediate end to guys referring to Paintball Markers as Guns. Especially if we want more parents to be open to the idea of letting their children play. “Mom, can I have a Paintball Gun? Mom, can I have a Paintball Marker?” Let me tell you from experience. I own guns. Real, heavy, deadly guns. When I so much as whisper the word “gun” at the bus stop, everyone hushes and labels me the black sheep. If I yelled the word Marker, no one would give a shit! Well maybe they would call me weird, but I wouldn’t be the talk of the neighborhood for being a potential terrorist. Stop using the word Gun unless you are talking about a proper Firearm.
