sideview, obamame_sideview

hack. spit. ew!

i already didn't sleep last night, sore throat, anxiety, then today i had to get up at 6 and endure water torture, then had an ultrasound which involved somebody pressing down on my very full bladder for 45 minutes. that was enough. so i thought. but no. now i am getting a cold and coughing up... stuff. yucky stuff.

i think i will go to work in the morning and as i become sicker (i'm such a positive thinker!) gather my stuff to go work at home or at least keep the sickness away from my co-workers.

Stolen from out under me!

I've been bidding on all this English china on eBay, a pattern I collect, and I have to say, I am very annoyed that I got an outbid notice with like 32 SECONDS left. I was actually at home with Outlook open so I tried to outbid twice but naturally lost, as the thing ended. Darn! I am happy to say I DID win the teapot and teacups/saucers I bid on, and they kick ass!

The teapot:



And the cup (set of 4)

Riding the roller coaster that is the human immune system

Ugh. All day long I have been waiting for this cold to either stick with me or go away. It's done neither. One second I'll be thinking it's just my chest that hurts and I'm not even coughing, thinking "Why did I stay home?" and then ten minutes later I'm all hot, sneezing and coughing, nose running. Then I'll think I'm sick and just when I get invested in that, so to speak, suddenly I start feeling better, but then in 20 minutes my head hurts or I get really sleepy, then I get up feeling chipper. I don't know what to do about tomorrow. I don't want to go in to work b/c I know I'll still be like this and don't want to spread germs, but it's hard to come up with much more work I can do at home and anyway, I need the hours (and no sick pay). Ugh. Time for BED, I say.
