[Current Mood |sicksick (and tired of it)]

Wow, what a silly pessimist I was to think we would be home at 1am.

It was almost 2.

Stayed in bed until 11, just took an hour-long hot bath, still feel like warmed-over crap-on-a-stick. I haven't beeen able to get anything done. Headache, body ache, sore throat, yes, but most of all just weak. Like I've been dragged behind a car for a couple days. We have opera tickets for tonight, but it's gonna be hell sitting through Romeo et Juliet - the first act is an hour and 45 minutes. A long, late night for the physically impaired. Whee.

Driving home with Amy was entertaining, though. She was making up songs incorporating all the road signs, and then we got to talking about school. Last semester in English they read Jakc London's The Call of the Wild. I asked her what she thought of it, remembering her sister's hysterical sobs through a good deal of the story.

"Yeah," she said ruefully. "After the second chapter I went to the teacher and asked her if the whole book was a long doggie snuff film."

The teacher apparently laughed almost as hard as I did.

I'm sorry :( I definitely understand how you feel - I've just barely gotten over a bout of some sort of viral crud, and was planning to go do fun things this weekend, and here I am, dealing with the beginnings of another bout of crud.

Speaking of animal snuff, here's a film guide: http://www.avclub.com/content/node/45020 (If you've already seen it, I apologize)..

I hope you get to feeling better and enjoying Amy's visit. I'm sure you're enjoying it anyways, it just tends to be more enjoyable when not dealing with being sick.

I feel your pain. Literally! I am in the same boat. I went to bed last night with the mattresspad heater on, and stayed in bed until noonish. When I felt compelled to feed those around me.

Good luck with the ickies.

Fellow sufferer here. Ran a fever, with chills, during the last hour of work, and the Mom got stuck in traffic on her way home, so I was there even longer. Today I'm being pampered by my Honey, and I'm starting to feel like a person again. Hope you feel better! I recommend a good nap!

I really need to get around to meeting Amy! Saw your hunny bunny earlier at Suzieboz's, hope you aren't missin' him too much (I know he misses YOU!)
