the first sentence meme

(skipping friends-only posts and non-sentences)

I feel like I've been patiently waiting for a long time... not knowing if what I was waiting for was possible, or realistic, or a total pipe dream. Go Pats. so i've got this vague soulless feeling from having bought my PC laptop :( Oddly enough, discussion online still can't quite figure out whether GMail (from Google) is real or fake... I am mighty! I think I'll move to Boston. Anyone know where the local parish is? Let's blatantly steal this guy's idea. I'm feeling like perhaps I bounced a little too much yesterday in my post. I like this one... I'm proud to be an American, where at least I know I'm free... to wear sunscreen. Keep a straight face better.

WoW amusement of the day

So I spent most of yesterday asleep... I guess I could write about that, about how it was the manic-depressive flu... nap, wake up exhilirated, then fall back down in half an hour.

Instead I'll just say I'm greatly amused that the Cooking Trainer in Stormwind is named Stephen Ryback.

(no subject)

Please please please please please don't let anyone catch this flu/fever/muscle thing just because I was selfish and went to the party this afternoon.

This is truly awful. I was tossing and turning because I dreamed I was too cold on the side or on the front, alternatingly... but when I woke up just now I had a horrendous headache and what I thought was cold was actually, I suspect, a pulled sternum. My muscles tightened up that bad from shivering on the way home. Who could have foreseen that?

A little time of verticality and some advil seems to have done some good. I wonder if I want to foray downstairs in order to get some hot water or some expired OJ.

I do believe, though, that right before I got inside from walking home from the party was the coldest I have ever felt in my entire life.

I keep thinking of maybe asking for a rescue in the form of someone who will bring me stuff for a couple hours ... but all the people I know who have keys to the place are all busy or have tissue-paper-thin immune systems, or babies who must not be additionally exposed. I wish I had known this was coming back this afternoon before making my decision; this thing must not spread. (Sorry, housemates)

On the other hand, I'm starting to feel rested and relaxed instead of painful and exhausted... I can still feel the tight muscle there in my sternum, but ... what a difference ten minutes makes.

Ooh. Can I get a gold star for being so damn heroic publically? Or maybe a slap on the wrist for being such a martyr?

[edit: not such a martyr after all, i just asked some friends to help]
