Bonus Cat Blogging

This picture was taken on the camera embedded in my laptop.


Guess that’s what I get for trying to surf the internet while lying down.

(Also notice that even here I failed to get a good picture of her. It’s like Kat has soaked up all the feline photogenic aura in the house.

Friday Cat Blogging


Kat loves the laundry basket.


Kat has been hanging out with me in the basement.


He’s also been looming over me, standing on me, and getting in my face.

And yes, the bookshelves stretch along the entire wall up to the ceiling. There are similar shelves behind the camera.

One Hundred

Yup, I’ve finally reached the hundred book point for the year–the only good thing about being home sick.

I’ve read an average of ten books a month this year, with the 18 books in October offsetting September’s pitiful showing of only 4 books. Still behind my reading as compared to 2005 and 2006, but there’s been a lot going on since the summer of 2006, and I haven’t always had the time I’d like to read.

-25 Immunity Check

So the good news is I don’t have African Sleeping sickness or dengue fever.

The bad news is I likely have mono.


For the fourth time.

They’ll call me later today with the test results.

So I’m home in the basement, alternating Tylenol and ibuprofin, and waiting for Michael to bring me soup and tea.

The decision will be made later today as to whether Grandmom will go stay with my parents or not.

Looks like there’s more reading and napping in my immediate future. And lots of liquids with which to wash down all the NSAIDs.

Great. According to the internet I have either Trypanosomiasis or Dengue fever.

I think I’ll stick with Gina’s diagnosis: Republican Intolerance Syndrome.

Not Dead Yet

My joints and my back ache.

My skin hurts.

I’m running a fever and shivering uncontrollably.

As I was running out the hot water heater, I was trying to eliminate possibilities.

“Hmm… No buboes, so it’s not the plague. No sore throat, so it’s not strep throat. I haven’t been bitten by any wild animals, so it shouldn’t be rabies. Plus, I’m not foaming at the mouth. I got my tetanus shot last year, so it’s not lock-jaw.

It could be meningitis. Maybe that’s why my head hurts so much.

And it can’t be the goddamned flu, because I GOT my fucking flu shot. Again. And I had the flu over the summer. So it must be something else. Something horrific I’m sure.

But instead of searching the internet to find out what it is, I’m going to bed.

Word Association

It’s time for another game of word association.

To get around the restrictions, type the old word, an equal sign, and then your word.

Loot for ME!

Well, I bought it myself, but that doesn’t make it any less awesome.

I bought the Alex Ross Obama t-shirt!

I also bought one for my mom, and was tempted to send one to Eric, but I didn’t know his t-shirt size.

It’s Not Monday Anymore, Right?

I’m sitting here putting off going to work.

Let’s hope things are a lot calmer than they were yesterday.
