Stress.

I've accidentally found a pressure point beneath my jaw, and it makes me slightly lightheaded and a little eye-crossy.

Chances are it is the opposite of a good idea to sit here at my desk applying a little pressure, but as an untrained/novice acupuncturist/martial artist/pressure-pointerist I feel it is my duty to determine just how much crush I can flood into this little guy.

I'm going to jam two fingers in there in just a New York minute, just because--

My boss just walked by. I told him I was taking my blood pressure. Yessir, I am feeling hunky dory. Would you like a Jolly Rancher?

Get right outta town -- watermelon is my favorite, too.

Finger-pistols with sound effects? Sir, you are the High Plains Drifter of the non-profit world. You go paint the town red. Ahhhhhh! Yah got me, stranger.

Tarnation, you done got this imaginary shot fixed in my neck. Feeling slightly woozy. No, no...I'll be fine.

I just...I just need to keep pressure on it.

Cut it out. If you accidentally off yourself playing with pressure points, who will do the Teen Wolf script?

Yeah, Sweetie was trying out pressure points a couple of years ago. The one under the chin or thereabouts? Almost caused him to pass out whilst driving.

Kids, do not try this at home.

Please, for the love of God, tell me where it is...

Babe if you're looking for the really good pressure points, you gotta go lower than the neck. Oh, and probably not at work, unless you're Gok:)

Ha! Sadly I visualize every bit of that and am right there with you.

Goal today: Find my jaw pressure point. I want to be cross-eyedy too.

I always went for pressing the heels of my hands into my eyelids until the little showers of sparks appeared.

Pressure points, even the thought of them make me slightly queezy, as does the thought of blood through my veins. I don't know why, I get light headed when i think about what's going on in there internally.

I like the Red Town. It's where I live inside now.

Two things:
1) Is that supposed to be Elat on that beach?
2) Knock it off with that self inflicted passing out thing at work. It makes me nervous that you won't blog or something.

Then what the hell would I do?

P.S. Where can I email some photos of your foal? She is getting HUGE and loves you very much. My email is thecusp@yahoo.com

Party on!
