"Postassium permanganate on a plate"?. This is stupid. It's one of those jokes where most people have to go run a search on the chemical notation to figure it out, and people who can read chemical notation are already in on it--but it's not funny.
I can't really read chemical notation, but I knew that "K" is potassium, and "O4" adds "per" to the element before it. I think "Mn" is manganese, so permanganate, which rhymes with "plate", which confirms the chemical name rather well.
If I'm wrong I don't care.

Epic headache yesterday kept me from doing much of anything, but I still managed to get the family room neatened up and some things rearranged.
It was the kind of headache where light made it worse, so after taking pills and drinking water I lay in bed with my eyes covered. Eventually it receded enough that I fell asleep, and a couple of hours later when I woke up it was to a normal headache, which receded as I did my light tidying.
The family room slowly takes shape. Subwoofer has a new home (though I am thinking about putting a socket under the counter to power it) and we've made some decisions about decor. Mrs. Fungus wants me to paint the kitchen next, so that's probably what I'll end up doing.

Humidity went down considerably but it's still warm outside; today's projected high is 87 which is still hotter than it was in the entirety of August.
I folded up the pool yesterday and put it in the garage.

Tomorrow is Maki's vet appointment, to get his leg checked out. I honestly hope this is the last one. I put his kennel away this past week, because he no longer needs confinement. Heck, the leg is healed; we're not restricting his activity any longer, and we're letting him run and climb and jump to his heart's content. I'm wondering how much longer I'm going to have to do the PT 2x per day, in fact.

I couldn't sleep at all last night. Went to bed with Mrs. Fungus, couldn't sleep; finally drifted off perhaps an hour after she did, woke up at 2 AM with a tickle in the back of my throat that wouldn't go away, and needing the bathroom. Took a cough suppressant, had a little snack, got back to bed after the tickle went away, about 3...woke up again at 5:30 and struggled to get back to sleep. Then woke up another two hours later, at 7:30.
I don't know if I have sinusitis or some kind of bronchitis, but it's just barely enough to be inconvenient. A little worse and it'd warrant a trip to the doctor. We'll see how it goes, I guess.
