And we're back

Grab the book nearest to you, turn to page 18, find line 4. Write down what it says.
“Every conversation I had was with people mumbling something as they blew past me in the hallway”.

Stretch your left arm out as far as you can. What do you touch first?
My old clock radio playing “I don't wanna work, I just wanna bang on the drum all day”. Amen to that!

What is the last thing you watched on TV?
“I love the 90's”, I think. It's too soon!

WITHOUT LOOKING, guess what time it is.

Now look at the clock; what is the actual time?
3:58. Is this fair? I look at the clock all the time anyway, so I could never be too far off.

With the exception of the computer, what can you hear?
The radio, my co-workers having a meeting and my boss getting excited about mundane things, traffic outside. Boring boring boring.

When did you last step outside? What were you doing?
About half an hour ago. I went to pick up some tranparencies from Kinkos for my boss and then I snuck on over to Bartell because I'm addicted to shopping at drug stores.

Before you came to this website, what did you look at?
My email for the bazillionth time.

What are you wearing?
Why? Do you want to fuck me? I'll tell you one thing. It's not black!!!

Did you dream last night?
Don't remember, but I'm sure it was either sexual or disturbing or both.

When did you last laugh?
When Faye said “Tell me more about your swollen glands”.

What is on the walls of the room you are in?
Boring office artwork.

Seen anything weird lately?
I saw this retarded asian guy of undetermined age wearing a blue and white checkered jumpsuit and a fanny pack as I walked to work this morning. He had a big gash on his forehead as well. Is that weird or just sad?

What is the last film you saw?
“Igby Goes Down”. Sadly, it wasn't gay porn. If it has been, it probably would have helped. Kieran is by far the hottest Culkin though.

If you became a multi-millionaire overnight, what would you buy first?
A house on Capitol Hill with a yard so that I can live there forever and Dom can get a dog.

If you could change one thing about the world, regardless of guilt or politics, what would you do?
Get rid of all the hate. I sound like a damned hippie, but it's true. If GW didn't hate, he wouldn't have been able to fuck things up so badly. I don't understand what they mean by “regardless of guilt or politics” so I might have answered this question incorrectly.

Do you like to dance?
Yes, but I look a fool when I do it. Bring on the booze!



So I guess I can't really blame the paint for my illness yesterday. It was just some weird, out of the blue fever/cold. As the day wore on, I got more sore and weak. By the time we got back from shopping, all I could do was lay on the couch and shiver. So finally, I got the idea that I should take my temperature. When I did, it was 99.9. So I took some Tylenol PM and went to bed (at 7:00), having Dom take my temperature every once in a while after that until he went to bed. My temperature climbed to 100.8 at the last check. That's not terribly high for a fever, but generally, my body temperature is pretty low (around 98.1). My whole body ached and I kept thrashing around in my bed, trying to get comfortable and warm. Finally, the tylenol PM kicked in and I was able to sleep. Until the walls started to shake and I woke up in delerium thinking “What the fuck? Am I dreaming?” Then I went out into the living room and Dom was using the power drill to put together our new dinette table. After that, I slept pretty well all night. This morning my fever was gone so I didn't call in sick to work. But I do still feel pretty weak and sore and my glands are pretty swollen still. WHERE DID THIS COME FROM?! I have no idea!! I've got my little space heater on and my hands are still cold so I don't know if it's going to come back or not.
Blah blah blah. I realize this is probably the most boring/whiny post ever. Sorry about that. I'll come back later with (hopefully) something interesting to say.
