Gods, my throat hurts.
I’m not entirely sure what’s wrong with me. Bug of some kind or another, I reckon. My throat aches, I can barely swallow, I’m running a slight fever, and I just woke up.
Well, that’s not precisely true.
I went to bed last night around midnight. I lay in bed and Bente immediately started talking to me. She told me three little stories about her life and eventually (around 1:30am) I got back up and turned the computer back on.
Sent Karen a short email to see if she was still awake. She was, and cursing me heartily for introducing her to the evils of JubJub Blackjack. (It’s a Neothing. Well, actually, it’s not… it’s just blackjack. But it’s on Neopets. So if you’re not a neoperson, don’t worry about it.)
I sat down to work on the stories and actually got two of them written before I was falling asleep again. (about 4am-ish)
I got up around 9am and my throat was killing me. I could barely swallow and my head was spinning. I got up anyway, came in and read my dailies (Dear Abby, Anne Landers – soon to be Annie’s Mailbox – Garfield, Cathy, Foxtrot, Dilbert, Luanne, Sluggy, and Kevin&Kell) and then limped back to bed around 9:30.
And here I am again. I still feel terrible. Unfortunately, I don’t think I can sleep anymore.
