There are few things in this world that good friends, brownies, and backrubs won't cure.
Speaking of which... I don't get what is wrong with you people (*cough* Froyd *cough*) who don't like backrubs. It feels marvelous! All that tension going away... mmm. I feel about a hundred times better now than I did a few hours ago, with the added bonus that now I feel like I could actually finish the work I need to do and not be incredibly exhausted tomorrow morning. Even just breathing feels better.
Tho I will admit that it does make me feel all blissed-out and drowsy afterwards for about half an hour, during which I am likely to either nod off to sleep or just be a bit loopy. Helluva lot better than getting drunk to relieve tension, I'll tell you that.
