Still a combination of headache and body ache, so one more pill before bed tonight.

I still had a headache today, but it's better. Unfortunately my arms are just aching. Mostly in my forearms but my upper arms are bothering me too. So just one pill tonight before bed.

Duck Habitat Cleaner. Behind the scenes of the Lance Burton Magic Show, Mike helps Turtle (that is really this guy's name) clean up after the birds. It involves a lot of work. First the ducks and geese, who essentially run loose in stalls. Then the doves in their crates. This is apparently done every other day. Those birds create a lot of poo.

Another night, another couple of pills before bed.

I can't seem to get rid of these headaches, but at least they're only coming at night. So before bed, I'm taking a couple of pills to allow me to drift to sleep. Thus far, it's working and I'm managing to get a bit of sleep.

Coffee Taster. Once again Mike returns to Hawaii (he was also there in Micro-Algae Man and a bizarre dream sequence in Cheese Maker). Or perhaps he filmed all of these segments at once and just spread them out. I don't know. In any case, this time he's spreading donkey poo around coffee trees. It fertilizes them. Just don't put it up against the stalks. Honest.

The first challenge takes you to the Inside Passage, a shipping lane from Washington to Alaska. During the revolution, the British explorers described mystic totem poles in the Land of the Golden Spruce. Your task is to find the Golden Spruce and find the puzzle piece that exists there. Though you don't get a whole lot of detail here, you don't really need much either. Just know that this is the starting point for your adventure in the Treasure Hunters Challenge.

It looks like NBC is getting into the game with their new Treasure Hunters show. They have created a Treasure Hunters Challenge site that you can play to enhance the experience. While not as immense in scope as The Hanso Foundation, it's still not bad (and you may win money). What's more is that it seems to have some end in site, while The Lost Experience seems almost never-ending.

Last night, the Carolina Hurricanes whipped up on the Edmonton Oilers in game 7 of the Stanley Cup finals to bring North Carolina its first major league trophy of any kind. Of course, there are those who would argue that hockey isn't really a major league sport, and you are entitled to your opinion.

Even though I was feeling great today, my headaches came back in the evening, so I took a couple of pills before getting into bed to help me fall asleep a little better.

We recently came across this show from comedian Louis CK on HBO, so we watched it. It's a bit uneven, but there are moments where it flat-out shines. I admit, those moments are pretty few and far between, but still. There are some. You just have to make it through the rest of the show. At least it's only half an hour.

For the first time in quite a while I seem to have no headaches whatsoever. It's actually quite a nice feeling. I also finished off the antibiotics this morning and had the best night's sleep in recent memory (nearly six hours). Perhaps I've had a lingering infection for a while and it only recently flared up. I've also noticed a bit of blood when I blow my nose, so I'll have to keep an eye on that.
