There’s very little going on with me that is worthy of a journal entry.

League draft is coming up Wednesday evening, leaving Jose and I (mostly Jose) in the last throes registration and organization. Eric and I willprobably go out tomorrow night to scrabble up a few last registrations and see some of the new people.

Working on Fuel Eaters. It’s going fine, I suppose.  We’re getting into the crunchy bit that was less planned and has more poorly wrought details.

Today, I’m trying to decide just what to do with my day. I should end up at Memorial Union at 3 pm to meet up with Eric at an open lecture and then have dinner. I’m considering hoofing up to the mall for lunch and shirt shopping, then over to campus. Some work in there, maybe. I really should get going if I’m going though. My head is about 75% cleared of the migraine that hit me about 20 mins after waking up. 75% is the best I can hope for.

Why It Hurts to Be Away from Your Partner: Scientific American:

These results, like those from Young’s study, indicate a specific link between separation and increased cortisol, implying cortisol-blocking drugs may benefit people struggling to cope with partner separation

It seems very odd to me that something like separation could possibly be “treated.” This is the sort of thing that leads to alarmist science fiction… Of course, I imagine the more common version of treatment is to find something (or someone) that once again increases those levels of oxytocin and vasopressin. The pair bond is…flexible…after all.
