This week I have learned the difference between a 101-degree fever and a 102 degree fever. At 101, I feel feverish. At 102, I get a sensation of mild verdigo and almost nausea, combined with a sense of despair that I shall ever feel well again. It's very consistent.

I just got a call from a florist about a delivery. That is to say, someone is sending me flowers. Most likely it's my sister, or a friend, but it is oddly entertaining to imagine various less likely possibilities.

Otherwise, I am mostly obsessing about my hair and clothes for tomorrow. Oh, and trying to get some work done. And wishing this cold / sinus thing would just be over already.

So, Linda basically took one look at me and sent me back home again. And here's the scary part: I didn't mind. Because as much as my shoulders would love a massage right now, it didn't actually sound that good overall.

I realized at some point today that I have given absolutely zero thought to what I'm going to wear to a wedding reception tomorrow evening. Not really feeling like rummaging through the closet now. I'm sure I own several suitable dresses, just not sure which of them fit...

In related news, I am really aggravated that The Head Cold from Hell [tm] still won't go away and leave me alone. I just want my normal energy level back. Plus, it would be nice if I could meet new people (see wedding reception above) without being the girl who is blowing her nose and/or spitting out phlegm every five minutes.

Other than that: TGIF, and yay for a 3-day weekend!

I think it is possible I may be starting to feel somewhat better. Touch wood. But I'm taking it easy again today, regardless.

Also: I listened to about 5 minutes of the debate last night, but it was so irritating I had to turn it off. Possibly I am a bad citizen...

Doctor says: I have a virus, no sign of anything above or beyond that.

I am going to really *try* to give myself enough rest and hope I shake this damn thing off soon.

Today was somewhat better. At least, I made it through a full day at the office (no naps, even!). Hopefully this does not mean I'm due for a relapse tomorrow.

What better way to usher in spring than with a holiday devoted to symbols of fecundity, such as magical bunny rabbits, decorated eggs, and a reanimated corpse?

p.s. In Sweden, they decorate small trees with brightly colored feathers for Easter (of course, in Sweden, the desiduous trees don't yet have any foliage at this time of year). It's extremely charming. Sadly, I don't think I got any pictures of this when I was there (in 1999 or thereabouts).

Am I becoming one of those people who's constantly complaining about feeling unwell? If so, I hate it.

I thought I had been lucky enough to miss out on the digestive part of the fell xmas flu of 07, but I seem to have just been slow. So far, not the severe form (actual puking) just the mild form (vague nausea, lethargy, plus a renewal of the headache I've been having off and on -- and oh yes, low-grade fever, which explains at least the latter two). Whee.

This is so sad. I had such hopes for today...

Still / again headachey. Might be stress, but it feels suspiciously like sinus foo. Maybe a fine combination of the two?
jaeclectic: (tiger)
I do not want the 3-day weekend to be over. In fact, I want to have another one, with normal energy please. *sigh*

all of the above, none of the above? )
